    Hi Pete,

    Sorry I’ve only just seen your message now as we are away for the weekend, I do have some parts but not the ones you have mentioned.
    I ended up finding a used screen from another forum member. I tried a few windscreen fitters but none of their suppliers listed UMM screens. I could have had one cut from laminated plant machinery glass but it wouldn’t have been safe for road use. The next option was to find a flat lorry screen that they could cut down to fit.
    Let me know if you need any other parts as I still have quite a few smaller parts.

    Hi Geoff,

    It looks like you are making good progress.
    Looking at the pictures of your hub it looks like your UMM has a different front axle and hub carriers to the earlier models, the two RHD front axles I have from 1990 and 1993 models both use the double linkage as there is only one ball joint mounting location on the passenger side, there are two on the driver side but only one is used. They must have just used the double linkage so they could still use the LHD hub carriers. Looking at your pictures I can also see hub ball joints are different on yours, mine don’t have pinch bolts like yours do. They must have started using a slightly different axle on the last models which also had the option of a RHD steering linkage.

    Did you find a hardtop?
    If not I have a pickup cab for a Alter II which I believe fits a Transcat.
    It’s in good condition but would need a weld repair on the lower passenger side mounting flange.
