  1. I thought it lasted a year but the link below says otherwise. https://www.gov.uk/sorn-statutory-off-road-notification/overview
  2. Does any one have a wiring diagram for the lighting system in particular reference to the convoy lighting. I have an issue where the dash board light for map reading seems to be permanently on. Also does any one have a code for the fuse box. I have checked all the fuses but seem to have an issue with the indicators, they have stopped working but the horn still operates. Yes I am a newby in working on mechanics
  3. I tried shiply they seem to do all sorts, may help, I used them for my Land Rover, yes I know different, but worth a try https://www.shiply.com/
  4. Every one, thanks for the help, I would also like to thank the lady at Land Rover who looked up the date when the vehicle departed from the factory, in this case it was the date of the manufacture. The MoT passed second time as they were unfamiliar with the lighting system on an MoD land rover. The documents are off to the DVLA for registration
  5. They are happy to test, however we have now come up with another issue where I need to contact Land Rover, date of going into service is on the sheet but there is no evidence of date of manufacture, contacted DVLA and DVSA but no luck
  6. Had the sheet printed off they still weren't happy
  7. The Land Rover is down for the MoT, it appears they didn't want to register it with out a number plate because its more difficult to get it registered with the DVLA. They still wanted me to get display plates
  8. The wires go up to roughly were the rubber fitting is and I assume to the metal upstand where the copper aerial fits in
  9. I am trying to wire the mount does any one know how to get the top off apart from brute force to access the connections?
  10. Do you know this is why I like the forum, I have spent days trying to find this reference. Many thanks, printing it off now
  11. The old one, you cant wash your hands in a buffalo but you can in a ........
  12. Tony, my understanding is if it has a civie plate no matter what country there is no issue because it has been registered, the issue here is technically it is not registered with the DVLA as a civilian vehicle
  13. This was my understanding from the DVLA but was told after their offices shut so I couldn't check, well off again to try for the MoT
  14. Has any one come across ion where you have a vehicle direct from the MoD, to get it registered for the first time you need an MoT. The test station has advised it will fail the MoT as it does not have a registration plate, therefore cant register it for a number plate. They suggested using display plates but feel this could lead to problems at a latter date
  15. Probably a stupid question but have you tried an foi with the MoD
  16. Thanks for the last link, very interesting, ties up with an article I read today to do with them being exempt from the USA emissions due to the age
  17. Guys Thanks for the help, the vehicle is in an EU country, I will be investigating all suggestions and report back for others, the web page shown is a good one and will be looking further, only issue with it is that I need to have concluded the sale, I am being cautious and will not part with money till I get the keys and documents
  18. Does anyone know who/where to go to get insurance for a foreign registered vehicle still abroad, plan is to bring it back to the UK and then register here. All the companies I have spoken to will not consider it or even issue a cover note
  19. Many thanks, will try and get more information, I have done an FOI to the MoD as I am the first civvy owner
  20. Having a Land Rover which was upgraded by the British Army, I understand it was called "Operation Tithonus" does any one have any information on this? Many Thanks
  21. I have just had delivery of the 4 aerials to be fitted to the Defender Land Rover, generally they appear in good condition apart from the paint appears to be delaminating, does any one have any ideas on cleaning the paint and repainting Thanks in advance
  22. I may have to recover a land rover from a EU country, I will be alone and thinking of an A Frame towing system, does any one have advise on how and where to connect the tow if no dolly. If I am going to use my land rover any idea where to hire a dolly to take the front wheels which has a NATO hitch compatible towing Many thanks in advance
  23. I have the original issued jack for the Land Rover, it has a turning mechanism to raise it, there is a bar which fits into the square socket and a ratchet handle, there appears to be a bit missing to connect the two, does any one have any suggestions. Would like to try and keep as much as possible as originally issued
