    CVRT Repair Manuals sought........

    There's a better way than that. Get yourself a small digital spirit level, measure the angle of the fan drive pulley, adjust the gearbox to have the same angle. The Fan drive belt will now not run to either end of the fan drive as both drives should be parallel, Job done. Diana

    If you had the manual you usually find what the thread size is from the part that you removed. Diana

    Etching Paint

    Etching primer is brilliant, it will even etch into plastic as it marked my microwave. I use it for most things now, I found the spray (CAN) etch isn't that good though. Diana

    E10 Petrol Consultation

    I fitted a brand new fuel level gauge inside the fuel tank of my CVRT, the state of it now is shocking. Bio fuel also destroyed the plastic sight glass as it destroys most plastics, the only type it is claimed it will not destroy is PET, or PETG. which I have replaced the original with. So far it seems OK. Diana

    FV432 driving on street query

    Anyone digging on a street or highway under the Roads and Streetworks Act 1991 has to have a licence. In a nutshell this was introduced by the Government in order to prevent a road or pavement being incorrectly re-instated, thus causing subsidence or potholes. It was also to prevent a road or pavement being dug up, reinstated and dug up a few months later by a different utility to the first. The fact of the matter is the dodgy practices of the past still continue with some contractors totally ignoring the legislation - especially some councils own staff !!!! Diana

    cvrt indicator switch

    Take it apart and lubricate the leather washer with silicon oil, there's also a small screw at the rear that bears down on felt or cotton wool padding. This is for the adjustment of time delay. Diana

    Goodbye Piggy :(

    In my observation the ability to drive has nothing to do with age and a lot to do with common sense and a perception of danger, which in my experience is declining.

    Goodbye Piggy :(

    Not strictly true, it can be maintained provided your doctor and optician pass you fit to drive, though another piece of legislative nonsense is the ability to hold a B licence and pass a H test then drive a tracked vehicle of any weight, provided you maintain your B licence. Diana

    Discussion on the bling ferret

    It was so well fixed no-one wanted to buy it for a long time as most of us were watching it - and when someone did it was sold it below what it was worth.

    Does that include putting back the bits that have gone missing ? (If you can find them)........ Diana

    Discussion on the bling ferret

    It would have cost as much to de-bling it as put it back to the way it should have been - a message to blingers there 🙂 Also known as turning something into scrap!
