  1. The civilian versions of that engine had temperature gauges so it shouldn't be too difficult other than the 12V/24V issue? Andy
  2. An FFR or TCB RB44 does indeed have two alternators, one 12V for the vehicle and another, 24V for the radio batteries. The two systems are completely separate. Andy
  3. No, I work in Portsmouth. I'm also one of the moderators of the FV430 Forum referred to above. Andy
  4. No real complaints from me although I agree about the lack of stands with anything other than Jeep and LR spares. I discovered an FV430 variant I hadn't seen before (Cervantes) and met up with several friends. (Clive - my apologies for not returning to you but I got sidetracked replacing a friend's fuel pump, you know how it is!) Andy
  5. Do you mean the saddlebags? Andy
  6. Agreed - the ammunition in the turret makes a lot of difference! Andy
  7. No swim board, though! Andy
  8. It, the Stolly and the 432 have just moved to their new barn so hopefully I'll be back to working on them again. Andy
  9. My clutch plates were fine despite the vehicle being left outside under a tarpaulin for over a year, but I've been told that a suitable lever through the bellhousing inspection access works wonders if needed. Andy
  10. Plenty of traffic heading down to Overlord this weekend! Andy
  11. It wouldn't be the first time an ISPL has been out of sync with the vehicles! Andy
  12. That would be my suggestion too, my Abbot had the VRM written under one of the seat pads in the turret. Otherwise, unlike the 432, there is no chassis or hull number on the vehicle itself. Andy
  13. That's what I found in the ISPL, but the filter doesn't look like that. There's a completely different drawing in the repairs manual. Andy
