Hi, Took the Ford GPW out for a spin today. When we parked up we noticed that there was quite a puddle of oil on the ground near the back of the engine. On inspection there was quite a strong drip coming from the back of the engine where the bell housing joins it (it is a bit mangled back there so there is small gap, but this is the first time it has been leaking so much) Doesn't seem to leak as fast when the engine is running... Is this going to be the Main Rear seal of the engine or something else? Thanks in advance...
Hi all - just saying hello here on this board. I live on the edge of Dartmoor with my wife and son - we're in the last stages of converting a 1960s Bedford RL into a travelling theatre, by taking the drop-sides, hoops and canvas off and replacing it with a cedar-clad living space and a stage that folds down on the passenger side. We've had the RL since 2012 and I think we've got just a few months of work left now... You can read more about what we're up to here. This is what it looks like at the moment... Perhaps not everyone's cup of tea, but it's putting the old RL into good service and means it'll be well maintained for years to come! I'm looking for advice about what oil to use for the RL and where I might get a spare wheel for mounting underneath (not to mention what kind of winch system is used for getting it on and off...) All the best from Dartmoor Tom
