  7. I had not thought of that but I think I may have a solution to all my problems I have located a complete running engine , The only problem is that it is a reverse rotation engine but I think that by crossing the belts it will get me up and running
  8. Hi , Yes i have contacted both of these with no luck , I am looking now to have my mag repaired but the cap is broken and I can not find another one , There are some magnetos on Evilbay but not two cylinder ones,
  9. Hi to every one on HMVF , I am currently restoring one of these compressor trailers and it is going very well apart from the fact that the Magneto is seized up , It is a Wipac A Series Two Cylinder Magneto on a Petter PA2 Engine , The engine appears to be in good fetel and so does the compressor and the trailer , It is proving very difficult to source either a Magneto or another Petter PA2 that is in good order , Maybe someone knows of something that will help , I will post some pictures later in the week , Paul.

Hi This is a question about the manifold nuts on my Morris Commercial C8 , I need a couple of long brass nuts that hold the manifold on as one on my Morris is badly distorted I can buy some quite easily but I need to know the thread size UNF , UNC , BSF I have no idea , If anyone can shed some light on this I will be very grateful , Paul.

The July Hunstanton Military Weekend raised a fantastic £4000 This total was made up of money raised by people climbing aboard the DUKW and going inside the FV 432 Also from poppy sales and a really big tombola and contributions from traders and stalls and of course the many collection buckets around the event ,Again I must thank all those that supported the event and look forward to seeing you all at the September do , Also anyone else that would like to come
