Has anyone mentioned the thickness of the glass EG 5mm 6mm if it has been recut buy a glazier sometimes they use 6mm instead of 5mm if 5mm was the original thickness ,That can give you grief also when fitting to rubber.

OK, thanks Hayseed.
Guys, the rear glass was the original piece. I did reply & advise I finally got it in but not that happy with it. Rubber might have been the incorrect section?

Thanks Lang for your very detailed response on the Windscreen Wiper Cable routing, I appreciate it & will follow that info through.
It does have separate switch, so point noted on that.

By the way Lang, I've always admired your WW2 vehicles & trailers with envy.:)
Would love to own Blitz one day.

cheers Pierre

I recently watched an episode of Graveyard Cars and they fitted a screen in using a similar rubber and did it backwards. They fitted the rubber and then pulled the glass into the rubber. They did break the first screen as they were using old faithful bent screwdriver and it was the corner that broke the glass.

Richard Farrant is one of nature's true Gentlemen.

I'd like to catch up with him on one of his trips out here.

He (I think) has a hand in organising the Corowa Swim.

Hi, I spent a little time yesterday fabricating a support stand in readiness for removing the Bedford's gearbox so I can pull the motor.
I've got into trouble today after removing the 4 attaching bolts & levering it to the rear.
The gearbox is stuck about 1-1/2" out from the face of the clutch housing!!
Just can't get it back far enough for the main drive pinion to clear the clutch housing.
Can anyone advise what would be holding it up. I haven't touched the clutch pedal
See photos & one from underneath.
There's another issue to watch out for to in drawing the gearbox back & keeping it level as the gear lever top plate bolts foul the chassis cross member.
Any advice appreciated
cheers Pierre

By this stage, the input shaft must have come out of the pilot bush/bearing. The splines must be free in the clutch plate (my recent horror problem). Are you able to see if the throwout is free on the front of the gearbox bearing retainer/sleeve thingy? (burr on the end?)
I am assuming it is fouling/hanging up inside the bellhousing somewhere.

Love that cradle!

Could the spigot bearing have seized on the input shaft and it has pulled out of the flywheel/crankshaft so it is now stuck at the clutch plate?

Can you get in and unbolt the pressure plate?
