Re: Thwaites brakes again

Even drill and tap the hole at the top of the axle tube where they normally are placed then if no breather available do what thye did on the early Landrovers, run a copper tube up the back of the cab witth a pigs tail at the end. This allowed them to run through deep water.

Re: Thwaites brakes again

Yep them youngens know everything.
you must compress the image in order to post on most Forums. From my failing memory there is a section on the main home page that tells you how to post images. Any issues let us know and we can go through it step by step.

Re: Liner Roughrider 1250

Beautiful work Andy and posting the filter branda and numbers are a big help to others as well. As for the paint Light, Mid and Deep Brunswick Green are readily available even in pressure packs. I used the Deep or Dark Brunswick a long time back to tidy up the Model 1 Victa "Goat". Since t...

Re: Thwaites brakes again

Hi Andy and welcome. Not sure where the diff vents from and now you have mentioned it I must have a look on our Benford Roughrider. As for axle seals, yes the seal behind the plate is to stop oil leaking out and then onto your brakes. A local bearing supply shop will carry seals and bearings if requ...

Good luck with your request and hopefully you will make contact with a 'human' and not some brain dead idiot who simply does not care.

Let us know how you get on.

Re: 1984 Benford Dumper

On the David Brown tractor site they have recently had a similar situation with yor DVLA people who were being less than helpful. However someone mentioned another association who were able to help in the trator guy getting his rego. As I am not in the UK I have no idea of the system only what I hav...

Re: Thwaites nimbus

Welcome to the Forum. It is a very helpful one but sometimes it takes a little time for the right bloke to log on and help but it will happen. Have you found any id tags anywhere on your dumpy? Type of engine and serial number as this can help date it. There is a supplier of parts in the UK and ther...

Re: Liner Roughrider 1250

At last years Rusty Iron Rally another member bought a dumpy along and he had a great lump of blue metal ...
