Re: Thwaites 4WD 3T Dumper Restore

How bad are the old gears? Sometimes they can be built up again with weld and ground to shape or new ones can be made if it is important to have 4wd. If it is going back to serious work I would consider sourcing new or second hand parts as you are now but if it is just for fun weld them up and grind...

Re: Old Benford info please

Sometimes you can get an idea of the date from the engine number. But that relies on the engine being the original and I done this on my Lister engine but I don't have any Petter details of engine build dates, hopefully someone here will.

So they are out there it is just a matter of where ...

Re: Dumper identification

My dumper is a Liner - Roughrider with a SR2 Lister diesel. I have put an extra seat on it for Dee to ride on safely. I also want to change the steer tyres over back to being the tri-ribbed style to make the steering lighter as well. In my steering box there was no bearings only bushes. Last owner h...

Re: Dumper identification

We still get the idea of what you have so well done. I notice that there is 2 of these threads and I offered some ideas on the other one as well. Something that I forgot to mention over there was more info on the steering box. When I took my one out and cleaned it up it had 'Bishop" stamped on ...

Re: Dumper identification

G'Day Ronan, Welcome to the Forum and I like your new toy. Interestingly it is a left hand drive model, or rather in the pic it is. Brakes should be a straight forward job and are usually a mechanical set up so remove the wheels and drums and inspect the condition of what is in there. Your brakes ma...
