Is that a HNJ cab adapter or one from ACR

THe 2.6 6 cylinder engines use a Stromberg

Peter
It is one of HNJ's and they were designed to support both the SU and the Stromberg 175.

Thanks.  :bright-idea The cast step is from Amazon as is the hard rubber bumper.    (is disembarkation a word?  I guess it is, no spell check.  I would have been wrong with disembarkment!)

Most definitely a good word. You would disembark a ship or an aircraft. The act of doing so would be disembarkation.
Not sure where the rush of English grammar came from, but it works for me!

That step or similar is available here. I did one for somebody's Transit pickup recently. I'll see if I can find out where he got it from, but it looks very similar.

About the grammar, hold on while I remove my tongue from my cheek.

I did the weekly shop in the 6 pot this morning for a change, it will not be such a rare occurrence going forward.
This afternoon was all about installing badges.

Made up some canvas strips for the front apron and fitted them with brass rivets.

I meant to say that I have made up three extras sets of canvas strips from the surplus webbing if anyone wants a pair?

Having a spring clean, neighbour has arranged for a touring scrappy to collect from them, so I used Tonka to help shift (some of) our scrap down to a central collection point...

"Some of" - The exercise has revealed differences in opinion within the household as to what counts as "scrap" ....  :-X   Maybe I'll invest in a couple of new Tarps to cover the projects...

Domestic Brownie points recovered by also selling some more of the scaffolding pile to a plasterer via Gumtree, it'll all go once the house extension is finished, again a job for Tonka & the trailer to shift it. We bought a "houses worth" of second-hand scaffolding back in 2013, when we started the project, I'll keep a towers worth for any repair jobs and sell the rest in penny-packets. At current rates, that will more than recover the original cost - not including labour and the 6 x 40 mile round trips it took to get the stuff here !!.

My vintage 'Priority' 5/16 punches arrived (ebay purchase), so I made a very poor job of stamping the replacement galvanized chassis.
Not sure how it went so badly (practice was fine).
It's legible though so I'm not too bothered, and it is a Friday afternoon job. :-)

The joys of British weather. I spray painted some parts and left them in the sun, looked outside 15 minutes later and it was snowing...

Collected this 1968 military LWB today. It is currently 24v but will be restored 12v for my use. It is remarkably solid and straight. Even the swivels have been protected by gaiters and are shiney.
