    Interestingly (or maybe not ) when I picked up my ferret earlier this year it had not been started or moved in several years, it had quarter tank of petrol. I added five litres of new petrol and it started and ran fine after a bit of smoking...which amazed me.

    Apropos of nothing, I drove 02 CC 76 in 1978, mark 1, Larkspur rebro. Until I passed my Control Signaller at Bovington and was moved to the back of a Saracen ACV. I think we might also have had 02 CC 74. Or maybe I had 74? Whatever.

    I feel like my thread is going off topic and wandering here.

    I am a bit behind but anyway, last week we used an electric pump to drain down the fuel tank before pulling it out. This fuel tank had the rubber mounting points sheared. This is the third vehicle I have worked on that this has happened to, so obviously everyone should be suspicious of their integrity now that they are this old. Glad we found that.

    Once the tank was out it was the usual process, yes it does get a lot easier when you do a job for the umpteenth time rather than the mystery of the first time. I have to say I am getting a bit blase about it and it instills confidence that I may actually be learning something and doing my own Ferret will be easy.

    So, the handy lifting frame I made years ago came out and into service under a tractor this time and up and back and trunions removed and out we came.

    We will split the power pack this week and then stop for Christmas. If all goes well then I hope we will be back together and running in February some time.

    It looks like whoever did the tidy up in the UK used Detroit diesel Alpine green for paint. Is anyone here willing to admit working on this one at Withams before export?
