  1. I recently wanted to renew a CVRT gearbox lubrication hose that was unavailable. After contacting Hoseman (Paul) on this forum he found a suitable replacement fitting and made up the new hose for me at a very reasonable cost. I know he has now bought all the spare 1 1/8 UNF hose ends in the UK, so if you want a CVRT hose remaking or renewed or a hose for any other vehcile this is the person you need to contact. Diana
  2. A picture of the output coupling and castle lock ring. Subsequently the castle lock ring was found to be loose, underneath the washer was an O ring and a rubber washer, who's purpose is to stop oil leaking out of the box. If the castle lock ring is loose then oil is going to leak past the washer.. I managed to remove the output coupling, the oil seal had gone hard, another cause of a leak.
  3. Here is a scan of the output shaft(s). The seals are items 42 and 32, there are also associated O rings items 44 and 45 . I spoke to Trelleborg some time ago and they confirmed that whilst The British Army use PTFE seals for our applications it's quite satisfactory to use standard seals.
  4. Hi Richard, I think I am getting my inner and outer seals confused. The smaller seal I believe can be removed with a Laser Tools part 6179 castle lock ring tool (for a Kawasaki motorcycle).. The removal of castle lock ring which has already been butchered on my gearbox, allows access to deal with the smaller seal, it's the larger seal that presents the problem. At least knowing the box has to be vertical is a start 🙂 Tomorrow I will post a scan of relevant part of the box so that you may be able to enlighten us further ! Thanks again for your invaluable input ..... Diana
  5. Has anyone replaced the output shaft oil seals of a CVRT Gearbox? If so how did they do it? All the output seals on my CVRT Gearbox are leaking, I have the seals, and I can probably do the outer seal fairly easily - but the inner seal maybe more difficult. Any tips or tricks would be helpful? Diana
  6. Just had some CVRT main brake pads relined £12.50 each, a bargain considering a set of pads is over £120. http://www.brakereline.co.uk/ Diana

  8. Not sure if it's been published here before? I've not seen it. (and it has but is somewhat obscure) Diana https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/615369/2017-00418.pdf
  9. 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
  10. So I presume your little ditty wasn't meant for me then? DIANA
  11. Buy yourself a petrol tanker as they drink petrol 🙂
  12. I've sent you a private message. Diana
  13. If there is less than 1 inch (25.4mm) between the tension ram and its stop then take a link out as Chris says. Diana
  14. Not often seen. CVRT tow bar,A frame, freshly painted in satin Nato Green, all pin threads free. Buyer to collect or can meet at Sarn services M4 (near Bridgend) Located Swansea. £600
  15. As the header says £30 plus postage (via Hermes signed for) For enquiries please send me a private message. Diana
  16. If you had the manual you usually find what the thread size is from the part that you removed. Diana
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. And I suppose we just take a trip to our nearest airfield or airport? Diana
