  1. Do you have a reference for that, John? I wouldn't mind a look. Andy
  2. Unless it's changed recently, the AA policy doesn't cover you for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes so it's not "any vehicle" unfortunately. I'm with Autohome for my vehicles, which are all in excess of the AA limit. Andy
  3. Excellent - thanks! Andy
  4. Thanks Richard - I think it's the wheel shuffling that's key, because otherwise I don't see how a rotation around centre of the axle can translate into a rotation round the centre of the stud. Andy
  5. I've never understood the logic of that. Why does the thread direction have any effect? Andy
  6. There's usually at least one on Milweb? Andy
  7. There was a firm who used to overhaul them but I can't remember the name. I suspect that's who Marcus sends them to. I've had a couple from Marcus with no issues at all. Andy
  8. Agreed - thanks Iain! Andy
  9. Are we getting confused by semantics? There are no EU "laws" - are we talking directives or regulations?
  10. EU regulations are already UK law - they wouldn't be legally enforceable otherwise. Andy

    Abbot FV433

    You won't find any wiring diagrams in the ISPL and unfortunately you won't find any wiring diagrams at all for the turret traverse system - they aren't in any of my collection of Abbot manuals. By the sound of it you've either got a problem in the controller or the ferro-magnetic clutch in the traverse gearbox. Mine won't traverse in either direction! Andy
  12. Definitely not from an FV430 of any type. They use a Selsyn system with five connections to the gauge. Andy
  13. As an FV432 owner who has just spent most of the day fitting radios in a friend's CVRT I'm not convinced about the "more difficult to work on" bit! Andy
