    Some time ago, the MoD along with a private company were trialling 'plastic track' fitted to a spartan-does anyoneknow any further details, or what became of it? Terry

    Diesel IN CVRT worth it or not

    MoD were forced into dieselising vehicles as part of the NATO common fuel policy. Petrols had an electronic rev limiter fitted, restricting the J60 to 4750 rpm (about 50 mph). Squaddie trick was to remove the fuse, and you could then get 60mph-maybe more........

    Diesel IN CVRT worth it or not

    From my experience, the petrol is better. I have used both for driver training over several years, and the diesel has big disadvantages; heavier-the front end sits lower and requires raising on the torsion bars.limited rev & power band. not as fast.not as quick on acceleration. bad vibration that leads to engine mount failure, belt tensioner failure, and engine driveshaft failure. See my 'modified' diesel on you tube-tap in PKE646L terry

    JAGUAR J60 CARB, cold start

    Hi John, cvrt's always wanted one pump of the throttle to start from cold-never needed to pull out the cold start lever-just make sure it idles ok when up to temp. Original cvrt install had the oil bath air filter so mixture was probably set lean to allow for the pull through the filter. best wishes Terry
