Fuel shut off taps leaking? Surely not? Mine leak like a sieve when turning them but stop leaking fully on or off.
BAIV have some parts I'm interested in but shipping is a killer. Need to find a return load, or go over and pick them up. An excuse for a roadtrip I suppose!I have one repairable original and just managed to buy another NOS one from Belgium .
The BAIV ones are good ....speak with Snr and Jnr Ivo's alot
I agree with you in that I will run one tank most of the time and bypass the two way fuel tap that has a habit of leaking .
I might cut open my other original tank and put a half size stainless one inside so I have the option of using that at shows where you do a few miles at best.
It's surprising how much G147 original stuff is still out there ....convinced some of the dealers drip feed it onto the market .
I will try and get to W&P as it's local ....hope to drive Pollyana there next year !!!!! but also works busy and I need to earn money to feed the Halftrack habit .... so will be in and out all week .
Have a good one !
Holland is in my opinion always a nice place to visit.....Ivo Snr & Jnr are very hospitable so make the trip and have a look round , they have loads of bit's they don't put on the web ....often the little finishing touches .BAIV have some parts I'm interested in but shipping is a killer.

For some reason I think we are on E5, but I could be wrong. Who made the stainless tank BTW? You will obviously have no problems with it!

Why not try and tie it up with a visit to Tanks in Town at Mons ( 30/31 August this year )
or 15-20 ish September is a XXX Corps event where we will hopefully do 100 odd miles on roads with the Sherman as part of an armoured convoy finishing at Arnhem
What parts are you after ?
My "New" fuel tank is stainless so should be OK , agree with electric pump and fuel pressure regulator .
I think we are already at 10% bio .....
Apologies to everyone else for what now seems to be a Halftrack restoration forum
There were several other carriers before the Universal. The scout was one such type.Just a thought, wasn't there a Reccie Carrier! I've seen photos of Cavalry Regts using Carriers. Behind the Drivers Commanders compartment both sides were missing with just seats in the back.
Try Drive Two for some PDFs on carriersThe box on the back is Mk1. I've yet to find a mortar carrier with a box where the mortar is normally stowed. So, maybe the serial number is wrong, meaning it never was a mortar carrier. The rear aerial mount folds down. Never seen this on a carrier. Some of the stowage bins are wrong. The side armour is partially bolted, rather than riveted. Need to find an expert on Mk1 carriers me thinks!
