Re: Classic pictures Updated 05/08/2018

The wall has a return on it still and the other has steel in it. What more do you want. :) Hi Pete, That Wimpey 38 RB and Mammoth Major Tipper pic. was taken at the demolition of Merthyr Vale Colliery just up the road a mile or two from me. That's the colliery that generated all the shale tips that...

Re: Thwaites 4WD 3T Dumper Restore

Hi Sean, Spill timing should be easy enough, I rarely use a spill pipe as I have found it easier without. First check the cylinder whose pump you are setting is on the firing stroke and about 50 mm. below or 30 degrees before TDC and turn off the fuel supply. Remove threaded injector pipe fitting fr...

Re: Old Navvy.

Nice one Steve, :bow: Is the 33 being restored or has it come to the end of the road :?: I looked after a 33 in the late 60s, The 5VPHN was one of Ruston's best, a brilliant engine which was fitted to a few other RB models too. :thumbup: We didn't have to swing the compressor too often because we co...

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,...

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.
