Re: Italian Dumper

Thanks for posting all these images and info on each different machine. Having the reversible driver plate would be a handy option but something you think they would not want to post on a leaflet is the emptying of a gravel load onto the machine itself as it is not on level ground. Now they have a p...

Re: Benford dumper 1 ton brake shoes

Take your parts to the local brake shop and they will be able to either bond new linings on for your or sell you the rivet type. The wheel cylinder should also then be identified and supplied.

Ball & Roller Bearings

Yesterday I found out once again if you think that the bearing you are chasing is no longer available or is a rare beast and the price is way too high I found this is what my bearing supply shop did for me. Yes this is a wheel bearing off a David Brown Cropmaster tractor that I am restoring and at t...

Re: Centre pivot

I dropped the axle on my small 1500kg Benford Roughrider looking for wear and tare. The centre pivot pin and the bushes had very little wear but it would be a simple job to renew the bushes if required. You could use a hacksaw blade and make a cut along the bush and then tap it out or use the new bu...

Re: Benford TT25 layrub spec?

Cheers, you learn something new each day. It is used instead of a universal joint but does a similar job. Some other early vintage cars had a similar idea but they used a rubberised canvas as plastic was not up to this stage if flexibility.

Re: Benford TT25 layrub spec?

Never heard of this part, what is it?

Would be a good idea to make one before you go to pick it up. Parts generally are not available over the counter. Also a model number would help others as to see if they have any parts that may help you out.

Re: Thwaites brakes again

Even drill and tap the hole at the top of the axle tube where they normally are placed then if no breather available do what thye did on the early Landrovers, run a copper tube up the back of the cab witth a pigs tail at the end. This allowed them to run through deep water.

Re: Thwaites brakes again

Yep them youngens know everything.
you must compress the image in order to post on most Forums. From my failing memory there is a section on the main home page that tells you how to post images. Any issues let us know and we can go through it step by step.

Re: Liner Roughrider 1250

Beautiful work Andy and posting the filter branda and numbers are a big help to others as well. As for the paint Light, Mid and Deep Brunswick Green are readily available even in pressure packs. I used the Deep or Dark Brunswick a long time back to tidy up the Model 1 Victa "Goat". Since t...

Re: Thwaites brakes again

Hi Andy and welcome. Not sure where the diff vents from and now you have mentioned it I must have a look on our Benford Roughrider. As for axle seals, yes the seal behind the plate is to stop oil leaking out and then onto your brakes. A local bearing supply shop will carry seals and bearings if requ...
