  1. Saw this on ebay, looks to be something early beneath it https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/202047206384?ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F1%2F710-241884-51242-37%2F4%3Fmpt%3D%255BCACHEBUSTER%255D%26ff9%3DGDN%26ff18%3DmWeb%26ff4%3D%257Bdevice_id%257D%26siteid%3D3%26ipn%3Dadmain2%26placement%3D483023%26ff5%3D968525885%26ff8%3D47056220774%26audid%3Daud-406136703332%26device%3Dm%26ff7%3Dforum.retro-rides.org%26mpre%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fi%2F202047206384%26gclid%3DEAIaIQobChMIy63dh6fo4gIVzcPeCh1mKQuaEAEYASABEgKLyPD_BwE%26srcrot%3D710-241884-51242-37%26rvr_id%3D200679438428
  2. I've got this battery charger which I can find any information on, I wondered if it was military? I'd guess late 80's early 90's
  3. I googled the "gills" as I hadn't heard the term before and came upon this link thought I'd post it up incase you'd not heard of them http://www.vintagewingsandrads.co.uk/pages/m-radiators-gill.html
  4. Does anybody know how to identify the different models? I'm trying to find some history on a body and how much it weighs as I need to remove it safely
  5. Tha annual "middy in the war years" event is on again,details here http://www.middyatwar.co.uk/index.html http://www.mslr.org.uk/
  6. Biggest concern is the vehicle needs to be inspected at a dvla centre which would be a logistical pain, I was hoping that just showing relevant paperwork will be enough, depending who answers the phone at dvla the answer varies. The story: 1939/1940 ish Leyland Retriever so MOT/Tax exempt Has never been registered So... If I had an insurance certificate and a dating certificate, could I get an age related plate without presenting it for inspection? Where could I get a dating certificate? Too early for Gaydon records? does the leyland society have a dating system?

  9. It belongs to a customer, the radiator was rotten, mainly aluminium powder but it came with a newly refurbished rad to fit but until I've rid the water jacket of all the debris it is not going on yet. The brakes are being rebuilt, all wheel cylinder pistons were pitted so were turning up new pistons, weve got new flexi's and seal kits from powertrack brakes to go on,the water pump is just about to go back on as it was leaking and we should have it running with water pumping around it through a water butt and when its clean enough the rad will go on and then its off to be inspected to get a
  10. The differences between what I thought was this truck in a picture and this truck is that this body has a cut out which has been like that for some time. The one pictured at a sale had no cutout, whereas this one has a cut out with about 15 years of rust in it and its been in suffolk for at least ten years if not 12 The cutout is also in the wrong place, single axle cutout
  11. I did a search on here before for the Leyland retriever that was for sale in Suffolk that had come from Australia, I found the advert but now cant find it and found a thread that had a picture of it at auction Does anyone know anything about it? I believed it came from the Wheatcroft collection but now doubt that as the body was slightly different on that one and believe it may be from a different Australian museum Any leads appreciated http://s1007.photobucket.com/albums/af197/mpaclassics/Leyland%20Retriever/
  12. Any idea of reg number, I might know of it
