  1. I have a spare with a damaged mounting lug on one corner available if any good to you. email me direct paul@rapidhydraulics.co.uk
  2. Looking at about £150.00 that’s all brackets and clips too, as taken off my tub. Will take couple days to dig it out etc. Then you will need weight and dimensions etc. mail me, it’s easier paul@rapidhydraulics.co.uk
  3. I’m sorting out a lockup full to bursting with Willys, M38, M151, VW Iltis, CMP C15, Military Land Rover etc. Guy was a hoarder and asked to clear it out. Half way through. Loads of Jeep electrics, starters, generators, repair kits, lights etc. No panels as yet. T84 transmission, two transfers boxes, loads of steering linkage etc waiting till all emptied before selling it all.
  4. I haven’t a problem posting, gonna be fun wrapping and trying to get courier, unless you organise your own.
  5. I have a spare set of bows and brackets as came off the tub. Located in Merseyside. Where bouts are you?
  6. Try Duxford Museum, they used to have a few bits of Cold War era soviet tanks and APC’s behind their workshops. Or The Tank Museum at Bovington will have what your looking for.
  7. Commander on here has a nice original one for sale if anyone interested. He’s open to serious offers. Speak to him. putting up as a friend👍
  8. Easy to make mate. No bending needed. Pm me for info and pics, simple
  9. IWM MANCHESTER has a turret display, maybe a contact for parts? you on Facebook? Go on a site called CAMFOLLOWERS, speak to a guy called TREVOR WILLIAMS (good friend of mine) what and who he doesn’t know ain’t worth knowing. Great guy. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Tell him ‘EL DUTTO’ (nothing rude, his nickname for me as I’m always holidaying in Mexico!) hope this helps
  10. The leak slowing down could be due to the casting expanding with heat.
  11. ECU’s and modern electronics, the bane of any vehicle builder! go old school, no electronics . . . . Points, condenser can be changed to electronics if need be, but problems with ECU’s, modules and plug n plays. Plenty of old school 6 cylinders out there if needed
  12. I will try my best to help . . . . as mentioned above, maybe a too rigid hose. Has it a steel helic inside? (Wire support) then you need single bolt hose clamps to secure. Too modern for the Thorny. swap for a fabric braided hose section, the helix is only there to prevent hose collapse, a short section like this doesn’t need it, so just a fabric braid is fine. Normally in 1m sections. Give me the ID and I can source for you, but try an industrial hose supplier rather than a hydraulics one. Cheaper too. Other option is a smear of clear silicone on the pipe when you put the hose on. Have the steel pipe sections got a swage on the edge? To secure the hose and the clamp. PM if I can help in any way guys, my pleasure after all the years of ‘entertainment ‘ you have given us!
  13. Ah yes, Pirtek . . .lol i was senior engineer for them here in North West for 10 years. They not doing it out of the goodness of their own hearts, trust me. You CAN re use some fittings, just need to be careful. We re end hoses and re use if we need to, anything to get the customer up and running. Compression fittings are different if you cutting the steel tube back to good metal.
  14. Yeah, they still available you get stuck. Be careful reusing fittings over and over again because of the ‘tail crush’. It weakens the crimp and makes the assembly’s unsafe.
