  1. Definitely not from an FV430 of any type. They use a Selsyn system with five connections to the gauge. Andy
  2. 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
  3. This does raise the very interesting question of "who is an MV show for"? If it's just the owners, why not just find a field somewhere to meet up? If it's for the public then surely it must take into account their interests? It's not snobbery, it's rarity value and therefore attractiveness to the paying public. Andy
  4. Please don't put words into my mouth. The comments we have received are both unsolicited and from organised feedback. I didn't say what, if anything we may or may not choose to do about them. Andy
  5. Th is isn't entirely altruistic as I'd like one too! I managed to find a part number on my dust cap and after wading through the usual impenetrable connector catalogues I've concluded what's wanted is an ITT Cannon CA3106E32-5SBF80. Here's an example and they aren't cheap! https://www.peigenesis.com/en/shop/part-information/CA3106E325SBF80/CAN/EACH/139419.html Andy
  6. Agreed, but as an organiser of another military show, common feedback from the public is "too many Land Rovers". Andy
  7. I looked in the ISPL but the box doesn't appear in it. Andy
  8. Do we know what the Withams ones went for, out of interest? I collected my six from Jobel on Tuesday and have spent the last couple of days painting them (Jobel blast them back to bare metal before applying the neoprene) Andy
  9. Martin - Jobel have quoted me £115 each for a quantity of six, decreasing with the size of the batch. I'm not exactly short of dead wheels, I've got at least two complete vehicle sets but it's always good to keep them in stock. How many wheels are you after? Andy
  10. Aha - freewheel! 🙂 Andy
  11. I'm currently using Jobell Engineering to re-rubber FV430 wheels. This photo shows the two prototypes together with the wheel I gave them as a pattern. They're neoprene rather than rubber but have so far covered over 100 road miles without issue. Andy
  12. Not a lot of space in there! I think as you suggest, seeing if something suitable pops up on eBay or whatever seems best. Andy
  13. A 2 pin DIN would be utter sacrilege - there's no worse connector in the world other than a SCART! I'd suggest replacing with a Clansman 2-pin, I've done that a couple of times when encountering weird and wonderful connectors (usually of US origin). Andy
  14. According to the Amphenol 62GB datasheet, 62GB-57A08-02PN(595) is a 2 pin shell size 8 jam nut receptacle with normal keyway orientation. Clansman connectors are shell size 10, hence too big. You need something like a 62GB-16F08-02SE to mate with it. A mere £48 from Farnell but they're out of stock anyway. 😞 Andy
  15. Standardisation is wonderful, isn't it? 🙂 There should be a part number on the connector, possibly on the flange inside. Andy
  16. I can't see the thread but they look like standard Clansman power connectors to me. Try eBay item 123790416974 as an example, which also shows the NSN and ab connectors part number. Andy
  17. That's the one I've got as used in Abbots, there's a separate BID that plugs into it. I wonder if the BATES RB44 used something different although it seems odd. Andy
  18. Thanks - I wondered if it was something like the SANIE that's used to encrypt BATES data during transmission. Andy
  19. Out of interest, what's the box to the right of the 321? Andy
  20. Ah - that was what I meant, even if it wasn't what I said! 🙂 Andy
  21. In that case could you let me know its VRN when you've got a moment? I'm keeping a loose register of where the remaining Abbots are. Mine is 08EB10, for reference. Andy
  22. Was that Mark Hart's Abbot, out of interest? Andy
  23. Ours was more subtle - it even retained (widened) steel wheels and hubcaps. Andy
  24. One of my friends at college had a soft top split-screen convertible. We put a Rover 3.5 litre V8 in it ... Andy
