Re: Unknown dumper.

If your DVLA are anything like our RMS people the info should be very accurate. We can't look sideways here without it being passed and verified by the authorities. So re start your search here with that info and see what comes up. Nice to hear that the engine is in good working order. You would hav...

Re: Unknown dumper.

Is that a proper number plate or something the previous owners used for an I.D? If it is a number plate cross reference it with the authorities. The missing numbers appear as though they were a 95 but is tricky with it upside down. I now see that the writing on the bin is adverting for the previous ...

Re: Unknown dumper.

Welcome to this great forum Finley. Is there a clearer picture of the decal on the bin? That may also help identify your nice toy. Also look for an I.D. plate, on my Liner it was riveted onto the back panel below the bonnet. They could be attached in many different places on different makes. I am no...

Re: Benford vin missing help !!!

The ID plate was and still is missing from my Liner Roughrider and I found the chassis number stamped on the frame on the opposite side of the drivers seat (LHS) just behind the bin. It was buried under a gallon of paint. SO as you get to play with your Benford you just might find it when you least ...

Re: Which model Thwaites is this?

Yes, very glad you are heading in the right direction for sure. Start soaking your piston and gudgeon in automatic transmission oil to help free it up. Do a Google search for a company that either makes or supplies rings and you will be able to buy what you need. Here in Oz there are a couple of com...

Re: barford 9 ton dumper

Is this switch a simple press button switch that completes the circuit only while holding the button down or is it a toggle type switch? Either way is it possible to improvise and adapt a switch next to a gear knob mounted on a bracket that fits under the knob and on top of the gear lever shaft? Any...

Re: barford 9 ton dumper

Sorry mate, I did not know there was such an animal. If you already have an idea of a similar switch try it to see if it works for you. First find a nut to suit the thread of the gear shit, then a bolt to take with you to the JCB supplier to see if the bolt screws in. There will be a high chance tha...

Re: barford 9 ton dumper

Not sure if the gear knob you are after is special in some way but tractor shop sell all kinds of generic gear knobs without any shift patterns on them. I also found some on truck spare parts sellers sites as well. If a shift pattern is required have an engraver put the pattern on it for you then wi...

Re: Which model Thwaites is this?

Hi SiH,
YES she does have a single Sister and that is for a very good reason. I would not recommend an introduction to this unit! It is also why I am a good mate with her ex husband and just tolerate her visits once a week. I do wish I could laugh about it all.

Re: Which model Thwaites is this?

Great result and well done fella! Persistence always wins. You got that right, there is a lot of us people who play with this stuff all the time. With our 2 vintage tractors, Humpty the Dumpy, a number of stationary engines and way too many vintage mowers and don't forget the Lorry to cart them all ...
