Re: Classic pictures Updated 09/12/2018

I would never have though of AWD, thanks for that. The link is interesting, although I'd love to know how by dismantling a Fourdrive or a Superfour they were able to produce a driven front axle. I wonder if it was actually a Roadless front axle they were working with. Yes County did convert Traders,...

Re: UK no. plates

Managed to 'borrow' a Dymo self adhesive label printer from work, and after a little experimentation printing XXNNdoublespaceXXX in 10pt appears to be quite passable for 1/24 scale UK plates. The tapes are available in black print on white and black print on yellow so all I need to do now is investi...

Re: Ford 3000 Steering Rod Question

Hi all, Certainly within the UK market the 4000 had the straight inverted U axle, one radius arm from the steering box to a single drag link and the track rod to the left of the engine as pictured. I'm sure the 3000 had a swept axle, two drag links/radius arms and no track rod identical to a Fergie....

The cab doesn't look too bad but the doors are rusty as are the cab steps. All glass prese...

Re: Wickham-Poole system

Sorry, it's got to be at least 15 years ago. There was a farm sale and they were in the long grass, not part of the auction. Farncome springs to mind.
