  1. Do you have the rollers for the rear top sliding hatch. Silencer box.

  3. The round plate is the coil cover I think and the square one distributor cover.
  4. The bracket above Start ya bastard is a protecting plate to protect the fuel filter under the batteries.
  5. Head back on and just starting to reconnect ancillaries
  6. We thought the water pump would be in the way of removing cylinder head? But its no harm taking it off to have a look at its condition whilst we had so much disconnected.
  7. Turret Off for further work and cyldiner head ready to come out.
  8. The small plate I refer to is welded on to back body the plate you ref is a metal black plate fixed on lhs over tank , camera battery dead on sun will photo all plates etc. at weekend.
  9. Latest editon to IMVG fleet. This Saracen (Mk1?? - old style turret with piston ports) was last driven @ 2002 during the making of the movie "Bloody Sunday" and possibly "Reign of Fire" - both filmed in Ireland. Data plate is missing from inside but reg no is 32 BA 84 and it has alv205 stamped into armour above read doors. After its movie career it was sold onto a paint ball site were it lay dormant till late this Summer. Obviously its in quite a sad state at the moment. We are currently trying to source a supplier for a head gasket to suit as one of the spark plugs has rusted in place and partially disintergrated so will probably have to remove head to get at this. Engine did fire up before this and we are in the process of fitting electronic ignition as well. Doe's anyone has any knowledge of its history whilst in the Army?
