  1. Hi all, I’m looking for an Austin K5 ‘Castle’ nut, steering arm to track rod and a rear ‘leaf spring type’ tow bar and WW2 hitch. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Neil
  2. Peter, Thank you so much but I got some with the spares that came with the Austin K5. They are the outer (split rim nuts). your message is much appreciated and now I’ve got to suss out how to delete this post! Neil.
  3. Greetings all, I know paint varies with supplier but I can now start my ‘model kit’ and will paint it late war British Army Olive Drab. Through experience, who, in your opinion, does the most authentic good quality paint and also, what is the paint code? I will have the more tricky bits sprayed but planned on rollering the larger bits but wondered if rollering would be an acceptable method? One last question… undercoat? Red oxide? Any advice on painting would be appreciated. Im replacing bits before a full cab respray so may as well paint them before fitting (lockers, spare wheel etc). Many thanks in advance, Neil.
  4. Thanks David. Well, that’s thrown a spanner in the works then. It would have been good news if they were generic.
  5. That’s the one. Ive got the ‘S’ brackets for the chassis but not the spring bar or hitch. Thats another thing I’ve got to put on the list. Did you source wood for the rear floor?
  6. Thanks Richard. I have the brackets so I will just need the drawbar? I thought they were vehicle springs cut down. Thank you.
  7. Hi guys, Regarding tow hook mounting, I have two chassis brackets which hold a leaf spring? For the tow hook to bolt to. a stupid question but would this have been the vehicles own spring type (spare)? If not, what kind of spring and how is it fastened to stop it sliding sideways? Many thanks, Neil.
  8. Thanks Richard. It looks like it came under them for a large part of its service as the front diff, rear diff, engine and door are all marked ‘ASH’ from 1941 to 1956. This helps greatly as I now know where it’s history lies regarding maintenance.
  9. I did read it but no ASH but just wanted to know whether that would be the key card abbreviation. I’ve just been looking around again and it’s also stamped on the front differential.
  10. In my quest to find out my vehicles history and age, the door panel states ‘overhaul 5/56 Class 1 ASH’ and the engine plate states ‘ASH C1 26/2/56’. would anyone know what location ‘ASH’ is? Is ASH a keycard location reference. Also, what is the class 1? Neil.
  11. Morning Wally, yes it is for the K5, rebuild 26.04.47. many thanks.
  12. Wally, I don’t suppose you have B296 on your list? Regards, Neil.
  13. I am selling excess parts and have a pair of Austin K5 wings which need work but are usable. please ask for detailed condition of more £150 the pair, located in SE London (Greenwich).
  14. Hi chaps, Im looking for an Austin K5 GS to have a detailed look at prior to finishing a restoration. Books and manuals are ok but getting a real overview would help a lot. If you have one or know someone who has one, it would be very much appreciated. I’d even bring cake of your choice! Thanks, Neil.
  15. Do you still have the tyres? I actually only want one as a spare but don’t mind buying them all. Neil.
