Re: The way we were

Hi, Thank you for your replies. Yes the O 400 wings did fold as you say to get the planes into a hanger. With the 100 ft. wing span there would have been few clear span buildings capable of accommodating them at that time. :offtopic: If anyone is interested here is a little more info. on the O 400. ...

Re: The way we were

Hi, I was looking at the World War One display at The Great Dorset yesterday and was reminded of this picture I have of a Clayton crawler pulling a Handley page O400 bomber.

Re: Leyland 498 Rebuild - a few questions

Hi, The standing height of the liners above the block face is between .003 and .006 in. or if you prefer .08 and 0.15 mm. The shims come .003, .004 and .005 in. thick.

Re: Poclain TX50P?

Hi,
Looks to me like a rubber tyred version of the TCS. :think: It was certainly produced in the same era, similar weight and same engine :?: :?:

Re: Poclain 75 CKB

Hi Jeremy, I to must congratulate you on your tenacity. :bow: It seems that this old Poclain is fighting you every step of the way. :doh: Your lucky the injector came out OK though, I've got a slide hammer in my kit somewhere that I had to make for that job. It's many years since I worked on Deutz e...

Re: Thwaites 4WD 3T Dumper Restore

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
