Thanks Cobba... are the Lister and Petter engine's pretty similar ? They look to be much the same design....

Sorry been off the site for a while. My dumper has been busy recently as we have just finished clearing the last half acre of ground so with digger on site the dumper has been well worth the £200 I paid for it!
I have not had chance to do much to it except essential servicing including greasing all the joints. I had a new plate welded into the bucket and some flanges to stop the bucket coming off the rockers as all the linkages are a bit loose. I have a new gear stick boot to fit and would lie a new steering wheel too.
I will post more details for you Ronan. I am in West Cork if you are nearby.

I'm actually in Mayo... haven't gone near my own yet but il be starting on it soon... can't find any ID plate but I reckon it must be a Thwaites Nimline judging by some of the pictures the guy's put up ...

Here are more photos. Rear deck removed as I am hoping to replace the steering ball joints but that back panel is welded on so it needs cutting off and then refitting with bolts. All the bucket pins need replacing etc.

The 3 stud pattern on the wheel is an unusual one and the only vehicle I can think of is a French made one, either Citroen or Renault.
