Hello from the Borders

Postby Scoguy84 » Mon Apr 16, 2018 8:40 pm

I should have introduced myself earlier. I have always been interested in series Land Rovers my first being a 1955 107 pickup and my 2nd that is my current Series IIB GPO Forward Control.

Still getting used to the layout working of this forum :) new to me.

I moved it for the first time since 1991 under its own power. Short runs up and down the road. Surprisingly peppy even if its just in 1st gear :)

Fan assembly needed complete. If you can help I would be very keen to purchase. Shaft, bering support, flange and fan.

I also would down the line like to correct the cab conversion back to original. Again if you have a cab rear and roof section compleat glass seals etc.

Not sure if this will work. The first attempt turning over and a little cough. Prior to this I oiled the bores and turned on the handle very so often for a few weeks. Zero smoke on start up I was amazed :) Dropped the oil will set tappets and freshen up the points leads etc.

Looks like we've found the third of these FC's.

There were 3 built for the GPO, one was converted to Dropside truck, the other was sold to another member of this forum up in Aberdeen.

Unless you bought it from him?

There's a few of us in the North of England, and the Scottish Borders.

Das,

No I've still got the one in Aberdeenshire. I have no idea when anything will get done with it..................

It's undercover so it isn't deteriorating in any great way.

I have contacted ScoGuy84 directly already.

I guess one day we need to get all three in one location??

Regards
