  1. Don’t use a chisel, use a brass drift.
  2. From your photo I can se me you have a diesel, therefore you need the common items and Spartan supplement from here: https://www.greenmachinesurplus.com/cvrtd-219-c.asp
  3. https://afvsociety.com - although it is mostly CVRT.
  4. The turrets were apparently built by Alvis, but the Fox definitely wasn’t. They were designed by Daimler and the production vehicles were built at the Royal Ordnance Factory Leeds. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Royal-Ordnance-Factories-Fox-Combat-Vehicle-R-Data-sheet-Full-colour-New-/312138106698?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292
  5. The tube on the left fits in the same place as the night sight and allows you to see through the sight using the mirror. The night sight itself can be damaged by daylight. They do turn up occasionally, I’ve had a few.
  6. Yes & not without checking, but I’d assume pin A is live.
  7. Hi Lance, I’ve had 3 Spartans and none of them had anything plugged in there. Chris
  8. Look through the photos, the rope is there!
  9. I bought a NOS one at War & Peace a few years ago. It was a shame to open the box. There are some good Jeep parts dealers on the continent. https://www.jeepsudest.com http://www.classicjeepparts.com/sv/ http://www.wildenbergparts.nl
  10. Have you tried here? https://staman.nl/socket-wo-a-6019.html
  11. I think he means in the online auction ending tonight.
  12. Have you seen volume 2 on Amazon?! Warpaint: Colors and Markings of British Army Vehicles 1903-2003, Vol. 2 (Green Series, Vol. 41) by Dick Taylor (2008-06-02) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01K14LI96/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_rOL9EbSY6ZY2S
  13. Have you seen the Greendot 319 videos on YouTube? I don’t think you’ll know until you have the parts in your hands and try them out.
  14. The height also depends on which size tyres are fitted!
  15. http://www.classicjeepparts.com/en/transfer-case-dana-18/shift-lever-pivot-pin.html
  16. The hardest thing seems to be finding one that’s not been messed about with too much. Usually they have big wheels, a v8 or tdi, coil springs, etc etc. I’m doing one at the moment which was supposed to be a quick project but it’s full of little bodges and they all add up.
  17. It’s much easier to find what you need when you a) know what it’s called and b) can quote the part number. https://www.greenmachinesurplus.com/vehicle-manuals-1-c.asp Some dealers only work with part numbers.
  18. If you look up the item numbers on the parts list associated with the drawing you posted it will tell you what they are?
  19. There is an adjuster on the side of the steering box. If that doesn’t help you could get one of these: https://www.jeepsudest.com/boutique/25-direction/2816-tightsteer-reducteur-jeu-boitier-direction-jeep/ or do it properly and rebuild the steering box. Chris
  20. Hi Paul, You need to get a letter stating date in service from the Tank Museum. It’s probably easier to use the military registration number for the VIN since there isn’t one or a hull number stamped anywhere. Then it’s the usual registration process. Chris
  21. I chose to do my Jeep in the original wartime matt paint so it would wear and gain some patia. Marked where you touch it etc. I think they look wrong with shiny, but it’s up to you.
  22. I know I’m hijacking the Dorset thread, but here’s the wording: Maybe they’ll carry the tickets over to next year.
  23. They don’t need to, the terms and conditions says no refunds.
  24. A TUL/TUM(HS) Wolf has the tools on the bonnet. Earlier vehicles had them on the tailgate.
