Re: Telehandler

Hi Mark, I don't know much about this beast, but before you get stuck into it, check all the oils and fluid levels. A good reason for lack of movement is low or contaminated trans fluid, next on the list would be gearbox oil filters blocked. Could the linkage from the shuttle lever have become worn ...

Re: Classic pictures Update 09/04/2017

Looking at the TK with the square skip, am I right in thinking those skips were fully enclosed and with a drop out floor of some description?

Re: Manitou mb25 forklift

Not familiar with these but it sounds like the mast has over reached and the telescopic bit is out of it's guide rail, or it's reached past a 'stop' and can't return. Best I can suggest is park it with the forks over a lorry bed or similar as you can inspect it without a ladder, you're not under it ...

Re: What are these objects?

I can't expand the pic but they don't look unlike what we call 'dragons teeth' or more officially known as Tank Stops. There was a WW2 GHQ stop line on the east coast that would have been inland but sort of parallel to the coast. Just a possibility.

Re: chocolate mousse in the radiator

We used to smear them with grease! I have no idea why, it was something my dad always did and on the now rare occasions that I get so desperate with something that I take the head off I do too.

Lancaster at Derwent

Sort of military, and sort of classic. I've heard rumors that there will be a flypast by Lancaster over the Derwent Dam on the 18th of June. Time etc. unsure at the moment. May be of interest.

Re: chocolate mousse in the radiator

I had a '79 Ford 6600 that steamed like a train from the crankcase breather. No trace of water in the oil at all. When we took the rocker cover off there was a small core plug in the center of the head with a pinprick hole in it, changing that stopped the steaming. Another possibility is from an exp...
