    My first CVRT - road registering question

    Hi Richard, See here: https://www.mvt.org.uk/verification Do you have a receipt for the vehicle showing it was bought in the UK from the MoD? I have registered 4 CVRTs, sometimes they go through with no issues, sometimes you get a jobsworth who insists on making it hard work. Good luck, Chris

    Blinged Ferret Again

    "It is unknown when it was released into civilian life but it was first registered with the current registration number in 2004." It was sold off in 1993, sounds like the current owner hasn't tried very hard to find out the history.

    Panzer 2 turret

    CVRT final drives are the easy bit to find and they are not expensive. Gearboxes are expensive though, expect to pay £2k for a good petrol one and quite a lot more for diesel.

    Sabre track tension spec

    If the track tensioner is fully extended but you don’t have enough track tension then it has stretched and it’s time to take a link out.

    Matching numbers

    The estimator gives US Army numbers, the M number is British.

    Hi Clive, Is there a shield next to the website URL in the address bar? If so this might help: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/tracking-protection Chris

    Looks like your laptop is not displaying the style sheets which control the fonts and colours etc. There might be a setting for this, it may be called CSS.

    CVRT Generator problem

    If the red light on the switch box is lit it is charging. You can connect a meter to the inspection lamp socket or the slave socket and see if you’re getting 28V with the engine running to confirm.

    CVRT Samson Winch Operation?

    If you scroll up to the photos posted earlier you can see the winch, the back door and the rope hanging over the pulley above the door.
