View Full Version : Question on Sankey and IIa wheels

Hoping someone can answer this so I don't have to take tyres off in the snow and try for myself.

I just got a '71 Sankey and already have a '67 IIa ex-MOD undergoing restoration. I got four brand new tires with the Sankey but only two wheels.

I would like to get two more wheels for the Sankey but also use these wheels/tyres for spares for both the trailer and IIA.

I know that the tyres are the same size as the IIa, but the lug pattern and hub on the trailer wheels look slightly different than on the truck.

Can anyone confirm that the wheels on a '67 IIa and a '71 Sankey are the same? Specifically, will a Rovers North PLC880, ANR4636PM, or RNC873 wheel fit the Sankey?

Where in Redding are you?

Yes the Sankey wheels and rover wheels are interchangeable. If you want to pop over to my house I can show you. :thumb-up:

I put Discovery I steel wheels on my Sankey, to match those of originally the Airportable but now the 9 TEA, Ex-MOD 90 I drive in the summer. I have 265-75 tyres on both the 90 and Sankey, though I had to trim the wheelarches on the Sankey due to the width of the tyres. 3+ years of happy driving and only 1 spare to carry !!

I moved this thread into the Sankey sub-forum to get things going.

Thanks, Thompson.
Maybe we'll see a Sankey picture on a RN mug at some point in the future?

I have a Sankey narrow I bought for 50 pounds with a rusty tub. I recently found a very nice tub for 60 pounds that I intend to sand blast and galvanize before mounting on the trailer. Plans also include making a lid for the trailer by narrowing a series roof. End goal is a camping trailer with an eezi awn roof top tent mounted on the trailer. Lots have built similar rigs from M416 and Canadian M101's but I haven't seen any built from a Sankey.

Anyone manage to locate the rear warning triangles for a mid 60's Sankey?

i was able to find one here:

but the listing ended and it was not in bulk supply.

I think those might be the later reflectors. Not sure though. The white perimeter I think is what's different.
Les, if you find some I'd be interested in a couple.

Edit: The style with the white border can be found here http://www.lrseries.com/shop/product/listing/16680/4313/9/9905992066267-REFLECTOR-RED-TRIANGLE.html

Very nice and clean. I went for a side drop to make use of the rear tailgate when the tent is open. Of course my trailer is covered in mud and my whole site looks a little more of a sight... :o

Mine is a little different, older style I think. I have a couple of the circles missing on one side per the picture. Thinking I can probably repair it with a circle cut from some flat reflector.

Well thats the tent and similar trailer. Mine has no tailgate so I'm planning to use a series roof and hinge it to one side and have gas lift struts so the lid will stay open with the tent on the lid. Kind of like Charles did with his 109 tub trailer-attached thumb nail

Sure was.

2010 was a good year for my little rover. I got a chance to do quite a few events and catch up with a lot of friends both old and new. :thumb-up:

I just picked up a sankey without a tub. What is the best option can you buy a tub or is just best to build one from sratch? I am in SE BC Canada so I doubt there is anything close to here. Have to fix the kids D90 first and then after that we are going to tackle the trailer.

It depends on what you want to do with the trailer. There are a few things I would change with mine to fit my own use but you might find the standard tub a perfect fit for your use.

I'm not sure where you would be able to find a new tub though. They are known for rusting out so used ones may not be so great. New old stock maybe? If I had a frame without a body, I'd start fabricating. You could make an awesome trailer with not too much labour.

I think I will just build up a frame and sheet it with metal panels, with a side opening lid. I would like to keep all of my cooking equipment on it the propane bottles for the grill etc. I was looking at some of the trailers that others have built on other web sites. It will have to go in some pretty rough country so I was thinking the sankey frame and axles would be a good starting point.

The correct warning triangles are all over Evilbay all the time - - there are or were two or three main makers - - Rubbolite etc - - the ones with small reflectors does show up too - two sets in last month - take offs - tends to go for good money, the small reflectors Im sure are out there if you keep haunting Evilbay UK - -
