‘This has been com­pletely re­built as first and se­cond gears were knack­ered. It’s mainly all NOS parts aside from the pis­ton as you can’t get them any­more. Fowlers of Bris­tol have an amaz­ing spare parts de­pat­ment, who I’ve blown a fortune with. That’s the third DT tank I’ve bought as the two pre­vi­ous ones looked good but were full of filler and rust. I used an on­line sal­vage yard search, which cost £2 but de­liv­ered the goods. I never owned a DT, so I’m look­ing for­ward to rid­ing this one.’
