    New toy

    The LT95 gearbox is the old Range Rover 4 speed unit. Recommended oil is engine oil in main gearbox and transfer case. Very strong gearbox, just the right one to have with a 3.9 4cyl diesel!
  2. I agree with ruxy, it is most likely a tappet slide problem. I have seen a cam follower roller break up in the past. If that's the case there will be no evidence of damage at the top end of the engine and you won't find the problem until the head is off and you start to remove the tappet slides and one of the rollers will have been destroyed. They are hardened and break up rather than develop flats. If that has happened you need to remove the camshaft to get all the bits out. From experience, if any bits are left in the gallery, they block the oil drain and the top end of the engine fills up! Good luck, Barry
  3. It was a weekend when I saw and photographed the Austin Fire engine at the Royal Ordnance Depot at Weedon, Northants, so no one about to ask. The Depot has a website with contact details, so I guess they would be the first point of contact. http://the-depot.uk/ Cheers, barry
  4. Yes, that's the one! It's standing outside looking forlorn at the Royal Ordnance Depot at Weedon! I thought it was worth posting a picture, just in case it was of interest to anyone Looks remarkably complete at the moment and may even be a relatively easy restoration. Barry.
  5. Found this yesterday, remarkably complete. In Northants. Barry
  6. I use a lot of plain waterslide transfer paper at work. If you sort out what you want on a PC, save it, then laser print the image on to plain waterslide paper, the results are usually very good. I use this method for applying decals to 3D printed aircraft models to be used in presentations and have always had good results. Barry
  7. Not even got the right rear cross member! Barry
  8. Look like the ones fitted to the Ariel Leader in the '60s. Barry
  9. On the 90s and 110s the covering on the loom gets worn away by the loom moving about inside the chassis rails and eventually uncovers a wire. The switch is then subject to the occasional short circuit and inevitably stops working. A fairly common problem on coil sprung, don't know about Series. Cheers, Barry
  10. I use a 3-D printer on a regular basis as part of my job. The one I use cost about £40K and is really good, but I've seen quite a few very frustrated people trying to get the cheaper versions to work properly.....! Barry
  11. Hi Neil, Is this the logo on the HLFV door? It was interesting to read in the NASA report that the HLFV was operated by the College of Aeronautics for the American tests. The College of Aeronautics was a department within Cranfield Institute of Technology when I joined in 1979, but Cranfield was started in the late '40's as the College of Aeronautics. The college became CIT in the '50s, I believe. Cheers, Barry
  12. A photo of the beast in action! Barry
  13. Hi Neil, i can't find the guy that would know more about the HLFV, but I'll keep trying. I did find a photo of the beast with the ground crew. Note the Aerodynamic cab.......! Cheers, Barry
