  5. I have posted an advertisment previously and received some answers but nothing eventuated and I still have no switch I did receive an answer from a Ryan Parker in Liverpool NSW He was suposed to be parting out a 2249 series and when the emails got to the serious stage like what have you got and how much no more contact Does this happen often. I am not real computor savvy and I feel that this guy may have been trying something that would leave me partless and an empty wallet. So after all this of getting my hopes up I am still require the parts that I originally advertised for Ron

  11. In Australia many parts like kingpins tierod & trackrod ball joints as well as shackle bolts & bushes uni joints etc were avaliable in good quality aftermarket parts shops I was able to buy ball joints for my 2249 series & they were the same as a 1932 British Bedford 30 cwt truck. The kingpin bushes are C1500 International & the pins I had to get made I must admit the chap that served me at Coventrys was an older person and he was very helpfull This was a number of years ago now and unfortuneatly they only cater for more modern autos now

  15. Disc steel wheels were a popular option in Australia as our long hot dry summer weather caused hickory spokes to shrink and become loose I have seen many wood spoke wheels with packer washers between the end of the spoke and the fellow One way to cure this problem is during restoration carefully drill a 3/16" hole ineach spoke around 3.5 inches deep Into the hole put a mixture of Linseed Oil & kerosene the tap a dowel into the hole This way there is a resivior of oil to keep the spokes tight in the fellow
