Oil seal on trimatic

Hi guys, have changed gaskets, oil filter, done bands, changed detent ring, taken off splash plate and run engine to find the fluid coming down from front seal... So reckon it's safe to say the leak ain't anywhere but the seal! Got a new seal waitin to go in but no real clue where to start... Anyone got any suggestions?!

Bedford earning it's keep

Image: 

The Bedford loaded with over a tonne of waste bricks off to the crusher. Is running extremely well and has really surprised me with its performance. It's quite a practical vehicle and has no problem holding its own in traffic. The HEI ignition has made a massive difference. On the way home from the tip on the highway we saw a gps top speed of 105kph.

Bedford 214 rocker wear

Image: 

The Bedford had a 'rattle' in the mid range that did sound a bit like piston slap. After having the motor apart for some new rings I was fairly confident it wasn't the problem. It did sound more like a valve train issue. I was told it had a bent push rod at some point in time and the truck came with a spare push rod. I ran the engine with the rocker cover off and could see an issue with the no. 6 inlet. Appears some one had attempted to straighten it but not done a very good job.

Bedford 214 rocker noise

Anyone got experience with valve train noises with solid lifters? The old Bedford is running strong but have what sounds like a rocker rattle, only under load, only on one cylinder, disappears under high revs.

Alternator conversion

Just installed an alternator on the Bedford K, the generator was good but the regulator wasn't playing the game.
Have used an 85 amp VN v8 alternator which was picked from storage in an unknown condition. Fitted all up, albeit with a 6 watt dash globe (until reading on here that 2w is the go).
It is charging fine and working great but I have no charge light at all. 2 watt globe is now installed. Getting a reading of 12 volt + on both sides of the globe.
Could the small amount of running with the 6 watt globe have damaged the regulator?

Bedford wheels

Hi all, new boy here. I have had a string of CF & CFL Bedfords but only have bits and pieces left. I am trying to get a handle on the value of some wheels which need a new home, I have tried many searches but came up with nothing. So if any one knows or has heard of recent sales I would appreciate it. They are as follows, set of four Bedford pattern 14"x7" Jelly Bean mags, three Bedford original steel hard shell rims one has the brake drum still in it with original wheel nuts and a couple of HQ 14"x7" mags. Condition "need a good polish" all have old rubber on them. Thanks
