    If it hadn't been over-hyped and there'd been carnage on the roads imagine the slagging all concerned would have got!!! It was successful then?

    (Ferret) fuel tank woes

    I've had POR15 in my MUTT for 11 years now. I can see in the tank and the covering still appears fine. Having done the same in a Ferret tank, the best way I found to coat the tank was to roll it around a field for a while! Also had some stands set up to drain the excess afterwards.

    We do manufacture power transformers of all sizes in the UK. We also export them - its a global market.

    Needless to say the whole operation was over-hyped by the press prior to the move which used two 8 row bogies, smaller girders than those shown and a pair of MAN 8x4 tractors not the Trojans as suggested. Saddest part of the story is that we seem to be incapable of building a similar transformer in the UK rather than having to buy from Korea.

    You will find the noise from the open pipe is far to great to go on the road with, although it sounds great (!). When we tested the Fox's after repairs we always left the rear armour off to check for leaks and had a short silencer made to fit the outlet on side of the hull, think it was one from a V8 Rover, you will need something on there. My thoughts are that there is a possiblity tthat sound deadening material in your silencer may be obstructing gas flow, how ever it seems you have not confirmed all the belts are intact yet.

    I used silver Hammerite (smooth) for mine. You should be able to get the sky blue for the engine and NATO green for the outside mixed up at any paint shop, or if you’re happy with his prices you could order from Marcus Glenn.

    He’s not probably right, he is right. There are 4 belts in that area: water pump, power steering pump, alternator & fan drive. You need to have a proper look and make sure they are all there and in good condition. The one in the photo doesn’t look great.

    I'd like to see the spiral ducts on the intake replaced with something more substantial as any holes negates the first filter and also lowers intake air level into the dust zone. Seen too many engines ruined by dust ingestion here in Australia. Big improvement in performance.

    Your probably right. I'm still learning. What do you think about driving with silencer off and back cover off? If it don't over heat then it might help narrow it down? Thanks for the help

    She roars again, and roars well! The quick spool turbo whistles in at 1100rpm. Rather than the tiny whine at 2200 of the miniature Garret. Mall pipe work done and fine and dandy. The very rare direct drive Turner 5 with over drive was a breeze to fit. 60 mph, no problemo! And what was a 0-50 I. 72 seconds (with trailer on flat) now takes just over 46 seconds! happy dappy miles of smiles
  24. A minor modification was the addition of an 'M' Series Throttle cable that activates the fuel pump primer leaver. A bracket was fabricated and bolted to the coil housing - priming made easy! The Jolley Electronic Ignition was also installed.

    Fantastic idea!! Do you have any images or diagrams showing how you did this? I am having problem working out the exact layout/design you used. Thanks
