  1. Yes, always something needs doing. gmc needs nothing doing to her, just fixed a oil leak from the transfer box on the jeep, cvrt needs a replacement voltage regulator, when its started from cold it over charges the batteries until I hit the regulator with a hammer then it's ok. Abbot has been restored over the last few months, pack was lifted, new fuel injector pipe fitted as one had necked off at the injector. bought a tidy 434 with 76 hours on the pack 2-3 weeks ago, was very please to find I could change the engine oil filters without pulling the pack out due to there been a inspection type plate inside the hull.

  2. Took some pics of my collection today. Thought I’d share them.
  3. FV 430 pack wanted, must be a good one, also track wanted. 07818817577 Andrew
  4. Was meant be short clip of the abbot firing, cannot seem to load video from iphone
  5. Are military muckabouts 50 cals any better than they use to be? Some time ago they were getting slated because of there build quality. Anyone got one for sale?
  6. After 4 hrs of painting job done.
  7. Will be getting top coat of nato green today
  8. So it's the gearbox that could get damaged though towing, anything in the steering box that can get damaged? Just for future reference in case I needed to recover. Good to know that if I disconnect the prop I can recover with the tractor! Is this right?
  9. Blasting and undercoat, bottom half, top will be done mid week. Were any abbots painted in desert colours? This is the undercoat colour before anyone asks.
  10. Is it ok to tow my 433 with the A frame, im just towing from shed to shed on the farm, wanting to avoid unnecesary startup. Will be blasting and painting her during the coming week.
  11. Yes, mind necked off at the injector, was down on power and not starting too good when cold. Considering she was only running on 5 cylinders she didn't sound too bad when running, surprised at that. 2nd injector at the radiator end, any other one and I think I could have repaired it without pulling the pack. I will borrow the pipe off my spare pack! Hoping I can change the pipe without taking off the heat exchanger, very limited room! Will see when the packs out.
  12. Recently found a split injector pipe on the abbot, so its a pack out job. Never lifted a pack before, ive got everything disconnected apart from the oil, fuel, electric lines to the bottom corner of the radiator, is it best to lift the pack a little then disconnect them? any other tips would be very helpfull, not a job im looking forward to! Andrew
  13. Wanted instrument panel and exhaust manifold (front one, to the left of the supercharger) for a fv 430 range.
