  1. Everything in an FV430 is SAE30 except for the final drives, which are EP90 and the FIP governor, which is ATF. Andy
  2. As someone with two failed applications and a failed appeal to build a barn for my vehicles I feel your pain! Andy
  3. It does indeed and you don't need to buy a manual, they're free to download online. I did a MOD FoI request several years ago: https://www.fv432apc.com/fv432manuals.html Andy
  4. It's SAE30 mineral oil and there's a dipstick on the filler. Do you have a copy of the manuals? Andy
  5. Thanks Barry! Andy (M0IJH)
  6. I got mine to boot up with Windows 98 after a lot of head scratching but unfortunately the screen has several lines/rows of missing pixels. 😞 Andy
  7. If you want to test the generator simply put a voltmeter across the batteries. If it's anything like FV430s you should have 28.5V across them at anything above 1000 rpm or so. Andy
  8. Any of the existing MV insurers such as Adrian Flux, Cherished etc ...
  9. I'm afraid not! Try Marcus Glenn or Milweb, perhaps? Andy
  10. Hans - The fuse problem sounds to me like the FIP solenoid. The manuals referred to earlier in this thread are now here for you to download as needed: http://www.fv432apc.com/fv432manuals.html Andy
  11. Asbestos is generally safe if you don't disturb it. The brake bands are definitely asbestos but you're unlikely to come into contact with it. Andy
  12. Do you have a reference for that, John? I wouldn't mind a look. Andy
  13. 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
