  1. The intercom is easy, you can buy a kit or the separate parts on eBay and it’s just a case of plugging it in. You don’t need the air pipes, this is for the NBC system which you’ll never use. I’ve made the cable for the night sight box before, again Bowden cable parts are available on eBay. Post a photo of the issue with the drivers hatch and I’ll see if I can point you in the right direction with that too.
  2. I doubt you’ll find anywhere much cheaper
  3. You could try https://www.milweb.net/dealers/trader/rapidmilitaryvehiclerestoration/ but there are others here https://www.milweb.net/dealers.php?catID=29
  4. Hi Andrew, I may have a couple left, how many do you need? Chris
  5. You can see it if you look up through the belly plate but you will probably need to take the top deck off, the seat out and the firewall out to undo the nut at the top. If you’re doing a service you might as well do the air filter and pressure wash everything at the same time.
  6. Lance, You don’t need to remove the engine to change the oil filter. The first CVRTs went into service 47 years ago, if an extra hole was deemed essential then a modification would have been issued for it at some point. Chris
  7. The public are actually there for 5 days from Tuesday to Saturday.
  8. You better get used to that email, you’ll probably get it 2 or 3 times a week for the next 10 months.
  9. When changing from forward to reverse you need to pull the lever smoothly and firmly. If you are slow or hesitate and it drops into neutral you won’t be able to get it engaged again without a lot of grinding or stopping the engine. The clutch on the petrol engages at 800rpm so you will want the idle speed set lower than this.
  10. Unfortunately we can’t tell you how to fix it, you’ll need to do some work to diagnose the fault yourself. I would start by removing the cover at the top of the gearbox and operating the linkage and see what you can see. If you can’t get to the bottom of it then it sounds like you might be better off swapping it with your spare and investigating further when you get time?
  11. Lift up the radiator and lubricate the linkage, if that’s no help disconnect it at the gearbox end and see if you can select forward or reverse there
  12. There’s a lot of good stuff at jeepdraw.com
  13. There was a Fox one on Facebook last week, I’d need to check but think they are similar if not the same?
