Area Report October 2020

 

ROUND UP ISSUE

FINALLY!  We’ve had an area meeting, or rather an outside gathering, mindful of the various directives and recommendations.  And what a gathering in glorious evening sunshine on Portsdown Hill, with spectacular views over Portsmouth!  As everyone’s been champing at the bit to get out, we were joined by friends from SOE and had a plethora of fifteen jeeps in various markings, and several bigger toys: International M3L-4, Chevrolet 1 ½ ton G7107 closed cab, GMC CCKW open cab, Morris CDSW light recovery, Bedford OXC and a Dodge ½ ton truck.  Together with a 110 Land Rover, a diminutive Hillman 10 saloon staff car, and a lonely German BMW R75 motorcycle & sidecar, they all made a welcome and spectacular eclectic mix!  We left in an impressive convoy for a welcome beer in Southwick on the way home!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There would have been more, as from my side of the tracks we had planned to take four jeeps, but Duncan’s sprouted an irritating oil leak (you know the one, where the little brass adaptor union goes into the oil filter, leaks, then oil gets sprayed all over the distributor), Richard’s wiring melted, and Bob’s carburettor was giving grief.  So, we all piled into mine, which promptly experienced a vapour lock after 100 yds!  At this point we were thinking synchronised swimming would be a better hobby.  Anyway, got going after the mandatory 10-minute cooling period and drove happily to the venue in windscreen down mode – just like the male models’ road trip in Zoolander - terrific!

I’m of course in smug mode, having successfully replaced all the valves and guides in Duncan’s jeep, but would it run? – would it hell! It wasn’t until I’d wasted hours, flattened the battery, used profane language, drained a can of easy start and even more cans of beer, and consulted experts online, that I discovered someone had swapped the HT leads around.  It turned out to be gremlins, the same little blighters that have hidden my reading glasses in the garage somewhere!
