Metal bar sizes

I've stripped my Sherman down to the bare essentials and decided to re-investigate replacing the bushes in the wheels with bearings. I've bought a couple of roller bearings with oil seals which look ideal but when I tried them out the axle is quite a sloppy fit. The bearing inside diameter is 8mm bu...

Doesn't that Belgian one look odd without any rear bumper and mudguards!

Degreasing blind threads.

As part of an over haul, I've removed the sprocket gears from my Sherman final drive housing. The covers weren't thread-locked on, and some of the bolts had come loose, resulting in some damage to the sides of the final drive housing from the drive gears. I'd like to use thread-lock when I re-assemb...

Is this part of the "Who Do You Think You Are ?" show ?

If so, me and the missus will be there on the Saturday. Hope to be at the Lambourn show on the Sunday as well, so quite a busy weekend !

I presume it depends on the make and size of the battery but for my Shermans I use 20AH AGM batteries with round crimp connectors bolted to the top of the terminals. However, having Googled Torberry I may start using the golf cart battery loom as it gives a reasonable amount of protection from accid...
