  9. I having another think ,and wonder if the plannets are siezed and the sun is climbing up them and driving the annulus [outer casing] if this is the case then a strip down is required.
  10. this is what i thought but if the 3/4 was on a nut and a 1/2 ratchet was used the whole of the casing would rotate unless a bar was put in round slot and somehow wedged . I dont understand why a bar is needed to stop the casing rotating
  11. I have had this torque multiplier for some time and never needed to use it. It has a 1/2" female drive , a 3/4 male drive, a round hole to put a bar in. if I put a 1/2 ratchet in the female and lock the 3/4 male drive in a vice torque is multified to the bar. when removed from the vice If I move the bar end there is no torque it just rotates the 3/4 and 1/2" drives but if i lock one of them it seems to work.I am wondering how it works or is it broken If not broken how would I work it to remove nuts Laurence

  13. Start with telephoning the DLA ask what they want to register get the persons name [ this come in handy later on] Get the vehicle history and a letter of near date of manufacture from the Tank Museum .send pictures of the hull No ,Data Plate, V55/5 a headed Letter from a club or yourself stating the Tank Museum is the source of accurate information on this vehicle . State the army vehicle of this era does not have a VIN No They still will want more information to make you play the admin game but thats the DVLA. They will probably now send a man from a company SGS and verified it
