Re: Hunslett shunter

Hi Norman, Sorry I cant help source the lights. The old Leyland, AEC and most others had all black cabling with labels attatched, needless to say the labels soon disappeared leaving us with a similar problem to yours. :doh: Part of my tool kit in those days was a battery operated electric door bell,...

Re: Classic pictures Updated 07/07/2018

Hi Steve,
Lloyds of Ludlow had a depot in Merthyr Tydfil just a few miles from Hymac at Rhymney. Their manager at Merthyr was a good friend of mine and they did most of Hymac's deliveries.
They delivered a new 580 C to me in 1977 and if I remember rightly the unit was an AEC.

Re: TM 55?

Hello Rob, That is a nice machine you have there but it isn't realy a TM 55. It is a TM or TM50 with the Perkins L4 (TA) engine which developed 48 bhp. The later TM55 was fitted with the Perkins 4-270 engine which developed 56 bhp. The TM50 was built between 1955 and 1959, and the TM55 from 1960 to ...

Re: PH2 oil level

Hi,
The PH1 & 2 Should have the same dipstick.
The crank case casting of the PH1 is only a shorter version of the PH2 casting.
Everything else including the dipstick has the same dimension so just mark the one dipstick agsinst the other.
The part Nos of both sticks are the same.

Re: Hunslett shunter

Hi Norm, There are a few tests you can do on the dynamo. First check the obvious things like the brushes are free in their holders and the brush springs are OK, It is quite possible if the dynamo has been standing a long time that the residual magnetism in the field coils which is needed to kick it ...

Re: DB4

What a beautiful restoration. We have a couple of David Brown tractors and everything is Whitworth from front to back. I find it odd that they didn't use the D.B. engine as they have both 4 and 6 cylinders engines available, the latter used in the DB50 Hi, D B didnt use their own diesel in the DB4 ...

Re: Classic pictures Updated 17/06/2018

Hi Steve, I haven't been on here for a while so it's good to see you keeping up the good work with a load of brilliant pics. :bow: The Daf belonging to M&M Low Loaders of Cardiff, (Robert McNamara), in one of your previous posts did many a move for me and I'm pretty sure the Priestman 120 on Ton...
