    is this a prime mover

    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?

    Sabre turrent question

    https://www.zdnet.com/pictures/photos-mod-tracks-with-deadly-accuracy/3/ Photo of said sight here - not the best quality image Was replaced about 10 years ago by the sight shown in shirc's link. Given the size of the thing surprised it was ever used in the field

    Sabre turrent question

    Do you mean this ring on the top of the sight shroud?
  5. I have to admit it did make me laugh Definitely to be classed "as a good learning experience" Mind you I doubt the winch operator will be sitting on the winching vehicle the next time. Theres a good reason for remote control panels!

    ALE the heavy lift contractor have got a good website on all the their kit and projects. There's a story on the Tojan ballast tractor here: http://www.ale-heavylift.com/news/ale-completes-build-of-the-trojan-trucks-2/ Its something they have developed themselves. M25 and Woking to be avoided this weekend unless you're interested in Heavy Lift operations!
  7. Somebody will be going on a refresher training course.... if they're lucky!!! Why was the winch wire being run out through the boom? That just doesnt look right. Yes the handbrake would have been good in the APC.

    Stolly without a brolly (or anything else to protect it)

    Dan, It would good to see pics of the recovery process....or would that be tempting fate? Is it running condition?

    Alvis shielder drivers manual asked

    Dale, Interesting to see the Shielder helping out Lancs Fire Service. Theres a couple of IBC's on the back but what else? Pump and manifold to feed the hoses?
  10. All, Looking for one of these: Thermal Resistor FV494519, NSN 5905-99-881-3340 A search of the internet hasnt thrown up anything (Xmod did stock them but "out of stock" at present) Used for fluid temperature output in FV432/FV180 etc. Thanks

    Haverhill Generator

    Thanks - I did think at 14 year old email address might be a bit of a long shot....

    Haverhill Generator

    Thanks - thought I'd done a reasonable search I don't think the firm exists anymore. Found a few posts on various forums for their welding sets but not much else.

    Haverhill Generator

    Not sure if this is the right place for this? Does anyone have experience/knowledge of Haverhill Generators? Not strictly a MV type question Come across locally what appears to be a petrol 24V Generator - Honda powerpack with a Haverhill generator attached. Its equipped with a pair of the circular 3 pin sockets as you would see on 110V tools/gen sets. This would suggest its got an AC output with the large dia pin as earth. Done a quick search online and can't seem to find a company website or much info in the way of manuals. Is the company still in existence - the label on the machine says its based in Kettering? Any info would be appreciated.

    Stolly without a brolly (or anything else to protect it)

    Theres an additional complication with this sale..... The Stollie is on an island off Kirkcudbright that was up for sale last year. I spotted it in the drone video that the Selling agent included in their website posting of the particulars of the property (Farm + Lighthouse) I should think it might be an interesting project moving it to the mainland!!! At least the buyer isn't picking up the tab for the move but you'll need to have the low-loader on the slipway ready to recover it.....
