  1. At least you got back and updated us on the fault. Something not a lot of people do.
  2. You can get one made if needs be 01639 732300 Speedy Cables (london) who are not in London but just up the road from me 🙂 Diana
  3. Beware as The Belgian CVRT DIP's are different, however if British it's likely then the connector you want is top row 5th from the left. You'll need a hefty metal clad wire wound resistor resistor if you go this route. You'll still need a wiring diagram..
  4. Instead of poking around in the engine and removing the front armour you may be able to fit a ballast resistor in the drivers instrument panel, across the terminals of the starter button that shorts the ballast resistor out.- - needs investigating? Somewhere on here I posted a connection diagram of the DIP as the one from Green Machine Surplus has some mistakes. Diana
  5. I stand corrected 15 litres....
  6. Asda don't sell E15 my way, perhaps they do with you? so yes it's E5. And yes 600ml in 1200ml out, anyone want to try getting more than 600ml out be my guest.
  7. Recently did a little experiment on E5 petrol, added 600ml of water to 4 litres of petrol, I extracted the 600ml of water out and another 600ml of Ethanol. It can be got out just takes a lot of effort. Have yet to find out the effect on the engine. Diana
  8. On the front of the engine against the drivers firewall (which you may have to remove along with the drivers seat)
  9. I'm afraid to say keeping these going is a battle of it's own. I'd tend to agree with the ballast resistor diagnosis. Drivers plate off for that.and info from Green Machine Surplus - CVRT Scorpion Electric Systems. Diana
  10. In good working order with a plug and lead £35 (how many do you see with a plug and pre-wired ? - not many)- buyer to arrange collection as neccessary Please send me a private message if interested. Diana Diana
  11. Fuel prices still dropping like a stone 🙂
  12. Self Isolating ...:-( I retired from work years ago 🙂
  13. I'm champing at the bit, after doing some major overhaul work and petrol being as low here as £1.02 a litre, I can't even go for a test drive. I anticipate a minimum of a 3 month lock down if people play by the rules, but they aren't so that is going to make it longer. 😞
  14. An electric tank is the way ahead for the future 😂😂😂😂, electric tractors ploughing fields and electric combine harvesters 😂😂
  15. The petrol pump filter is easily available on Ebay. I fitted an extra CAV/Delphi filter in the fuel line as contaminant was passing through the other 2 filters - works a treat. Diana
  16. Needs a de-rust and paint ! 😎 You did ask !
  17. Genuine NOS, unused, black oil can, as provided to Ferret and other vehicles as part of their CES. NSN 4930 99 801 2613 Dated 1973 Picture to follow later. This is a rare item! Can with removable filler funnel £40 + postage. Please PM me if interested. Diana
  18. Fitting radios and a complete intercom system in a CVRT it's is a piece of cake 🙂 I've fitted 3 radios to mine , one of which was a Racal VRM 5080 (knocks the spots of a VRC 353)
  19. I'm sure there are people buying these vehicles and realising very quickly they are out of their depth, as well as chancers trying it on to gullible people. I bought a Spartan little realising what problems I was taking on, luckily I am more than capable of sorting it out. There's a Shielder on ebay for £22k - honestly, a vehicle with a spares problem to start with including track that's hard to obtain. A 432 which has an asking price of more than a CVRT, is heavier, more difficult to work on - where's the sense in that? Diana
  20. 8 as new off Lucas Lamp Bases as fitted to Landrovers with a metal based glass lens. These are the light rings holding the lens of the side/indicator/stop &tail lenses fitted to LANDROVER with the metal screw in lens. They will not fit the glass lens found on Ferret and CVRT or some other vehicles. £50 plus postage for the 8 Please send me a private message - NOTE these do NOT fit the all glass lenses fitted to Ferret/CVRT and some other vehicles. Diana
  21. 10w30 for everything that needs oil. some people do use 15W40 in the engine.- all oil sshoul be mineral oil. The cheapest way is a 20 litre drum of ebay for about £45. Do not use semi synthetic or synthetic, especially in the gearbox. Diana
  22. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Lucas-NOS-Land-Rover-Military-Waterproof-Electrical-Connector/133210776127?hash=item1f03fb223f:g:GuoAAOSwtYJdQ-v3
  23. There is only one place to get info on CVRT that is worth trying - Green Machine surplus. This is what you want ...https://www.greenmachinesurplus.com/cvrt-scorpion-electrical-system-cvrt-165-p.asp But you will have to extract from it specifics regarding the Spartan. Diana
  24. Yes Robin - that's the one! but not at their stupid price (before it was sold). Diana
