  1. Welding Ferrets

  2. Welding Ferrets

    Um.. drill and tap steel armour? Unless you have a mag drill then its going to be more than difficult. Tig is the way to go.
  3. Welding Ferrets

    A firm tried it on my Ferret and they just wouldn't hold. In the end they tig welded them on without filler wire. Maybe the gun they used wasn't powerful enough? Diana
  4. Welding Ferrets

    A stud welding gun doesn't work but TIG does for the studs. Diana
  5. Racal bcc 563 aamtu

    http://www.amateurtele.com/print.php?artikel=265 Use Google Translate. Racal (Kapsch) VRM 5080 Cheaper than a Clansman 353 - and no final tube (valve) Note does not fit the Clansman series radio mounts. Diana
  6. CVRT Scimitar indicator switch question

    The switch is pneumatic. In the event that the oil fix doesn't work a new leather seal can be made from a disc of 1.2 mm thick leather, after drilling out the rivet in the centre of the piston and replacing with a small screw and nut. Nominally its a 10 second delay but that may not be on both right and left. - it's a bit of a hit/miss affair regarding timing. Diana
  7. Wanted: Green Goddess tires

    http://www.totectyres.co.uk/Trucks.aspx Incidentally Totec will also supply the correct radial tyres for Ferret's etc - so they need not all end up with Bar Grips. and the correct tyre is not 8 ply either.. Diana
  8. The Works - Books

    In the Works bookshop yesterday - Haynes Owners Workshops manuals reduced from £22 to £6. I saw The Tiger, Sherman and Chieftain. There may have been others. Diana
  9. Cork Seals

    Liquid Paraffin is a mineral oil, not the best thing to put on rubber (depending on the rubber of course) The best safe thing for rubber is silicon oil/grease. Diana
  10. Down-sizing starter battery?

    Beat me by minutes ! Diana
  11. Down-sizing starter battery?

    A CVR(T) fitted with a J60 engine, which is to all intents and purposes an E type engine/XJ6 engine, when fitted in a car has a 12V nominal 66AH battery. Therefore two 12 volt batteries in series @66AH is more than adequate (Cranking amps unknown), however 770A seems to be recommended @12V AGM cells info = https://nyln.org/agm-batteries-pros-and-cons-list Diana
  12. Down-sizing starter battery?

    I shopped around and bought a pair of https://www.batterymegastore.co.uk/x2-varta-j3-6tn-promotive-black-battery.html In my opinion they are far superior to the cheaper 6tn, a pair of which I have. I use a pair of Varta blue batteries on my Ferret, after 7 years they are still going strong. Diana
  13. Fv721 fox

    Why don't you have the service manual? It's the first thing anyone buying a MV should get after buying the vehicle. If you don't have the manual (provided you can get one), and there are plenty available for the Fox, then you will have a problem looking after it and resolving problems.
