Re: Classic Plant and Machinery

I now realise that its demise was announced in PL's forward to the June issue. I'd skipped reading that page and gone straight into the "meat" of the mag. Thoroughly enjoyed the article about Dick Hampton's muck-shift for the Milford Haven branch line but I'm sure that while D8s certainly...

Re: Recent Foden Restoration

John's trip in that Foden does show how far behind they were by this point though. A great chassis let down by a terrible drivers experience. The 12 speed box is such hard work compared to a contemporary Fuller. Sadly we were already falling behind the competition on many fronts for various reasons...

Re: Classic Plant and Machinery

Yes indeed Angus the June 2020 issue was the last one; I peered inside the August copy of Old Glory magazine but left it on the shelf, what's left of Classic Plant is hardly worth the effort which is sad. I have been informed that it may re-appear in the future if the advertising can be won back so ...

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

Well I still have no bits for the Poclain ram yet, but never mind the work carries on; when I got there yesterday it was drizzling so I got a couple of other jobs done up there. Phil Peacock who has just finished restoring a Priestman Wolf up there had a chap come out and apply some decals to it for...

Re: 1989 jcb 3cx sitemaster grey cab lights

Hi Oliver and welcome to the site :wave: always start simple so check all of the fuses first then if you have a multi-meter check that the machine is charging correctly and check to see if you have any voltage to any of the lights that don't work, just have a look and check for corroded terminals an...

Re: JCB fuel blockages

Thanks Agrimax :thumbup: :bow: my JCB knowledge is somewhat lacking; but I agree with you that if the tank is fixed in then the only way to repair it would be to cut a hole in it as you have suggested and cleaning/repairing it that way. I don't know if you have the room to do this but if I had gone ...

Re: Classic pictures Updated 26/07/2020

Nice early 580C in the first photo and a late 401 Rolls powered Sed Atk. :thumbup: in the third photo, probably a 290L and not the more common 265L.
