Re: Thwaites nimbus

Welcome to the Forum. It is a very helpful one but sometimes it takes a little time for the right bloke to log on and help but it will happen. Have you found any id tags anywhere on your dumpy? Type of engine and serial number as this can help date it. There is a supplier of parts in the UK and ther...

Re: Liner Roughrider 1250

It is looking great. It is a shame your not happy with the seat as that one was not cheap. Something to consider to help with the ride is a lower tyre pressure all round and a weight in the bin. At last years Rusty Iron Rally another member bought a dumpy along and he had a great lump of blue metal ...

Re: 3d mk3 giring hydraulic brakes

Here in Australia many of the old master and slave cylinders are bored out and have a stainless steel sleeve installed back to original specifications. Then a standard rebuild kit finishes it off.

Re: Shawnee Poole Dumper brakes

A picture does help to identify what you are looking for.
Most likely a Girlock or Girling brake system found on many English vehicles from mini to MG so try comparing those for a start.

Re: Thwaites 4WD 3T Dumper Restore

At a guess only, I think that each is it's own oil reservoir. As mentioned the diff appears to be higher than the reduction boxes and is what I base my thoughts on. I would definitely use the SAE90/140 for the reduction boxes and what ever is recommended for the diff. I recently did the rear end up ...

Re: Identifying my dumper

Try new fuel and air filters and put a little fuel cleaner in the system and run it. Otherwise it might be getting too much fuel or the injector needs a service.
I start with the simple things first and work my way forward from there.

Re: Identifying my dumper

Is there some tin ware missing behind where you are sitting?
If so that is possibly where the ID tag is
