Re: Old photos

Hadn't thought to offer them to the university. I have been in contact previously and they are taking the vast amount of subject books and reference paperwork, along with the research notes - in all about a van full! I'll have a chat with them.

Hi all, This is a bus ride off topic so apologies in advance. We are currently in the unfortunate situation of the redistribution of a late relatives accumulated belongings and we are stumped as to what to do with photos. He was single with no other family, but travelled the world and took masses of...

Re: Hydrovane 5 compressor

I sort of guessed it was, as I was in a hurry to inflate a slow puncture that I really should have fixed months ago I wasn't in a position to investigate further at that point. I've looked at a couple of videos regarding servicing but I have yet to find one that explains how and where the oil is con...

Re: Truckfest Peterborough 2020

So, I was clinging on to the last minute in the hope I would make it, but no. So I missed it for the first time in 32 years. I'm not sure what's sadder, missing it, or, admitting I've wasted 32 bank holidays. Anyhow, to make it worse (if that's possible!) I've been stuck at home and running through ...

Re: Ford 4000 3cyl Generator / Regulator Problem Help!

You're more than welcome, I just hope I'm right! I've got to the age now where I post something, then a couple of hours later start questioning what I wrote - that's my excuse anyway.

Re: Ford 4000 3cyl Generator / Regulator Problem Help!

I know the feeling, my Major isn't that far from me but still not 'outside the door' for a spare 5 minute fix!
So to clarify, take the wires off at the dynamo and use a fresh bit of wire, that way you dodge making any other faults worse.
