    Storage in Kent

    secure dry inside storage with light power and water available. PM if interested
  2. always amazed me on the news footage, the guys are on one side saying there's a tunnel on this side, but quite clearly seen on the opposite side are several concrete vent shafts that obviously served underground areas of some sort. I know where I'd be digging.....

    cvrt track change

    when you get ten links of old track clear of the sprocket, take out he track pin and put it to one side. Easier to handle and stack than a whole roll of track!!

    cvrt track change

    no. 1 remove front and rear mudflaps 2 release track tension completely 3 midway between front sprocket and first roadwheel remove trackpin (it helps if you fit the track clamp and flex the pin removal joint to app. 13 degrees-this allows the pin to be slid out) 4 join new track to old in front of vehicle 5 slowly and smoothly drive onto new track until new track has arrived over top of sprocket. 6 remove track pin and disconnect old track 7 fit chock between track horn and second road wheel (to prevent vehicle running off front of track) 8 drive very slowly forward to bring two track ends closer together and apply parking brake 9 fit track clamp and then remove chock 10 it is important that the two ends are married together precisely, with 13 degree angle between them to allow the hexangonal bushes to align. Applying too much force/incorrect angle will destroy bushes/pins essential tools to have are; track clamp, long drift, bush alignment tool, copper mallet good luck!

    The Sun newspaper - 22nd August 2018

    If history is brought to your attention, then people ask, and so the memory is perpetuated, if, on the other hand, it is hidden from sight for fear of offending somebody, then the memory fades and wil be forgotten. Yes, it is horrific, but its true, it did happen, and must be remembered and told so we all appreciate the world we live in now.

    is this a prime mover

    jeez-getting up Martyrs Lane or the six cross roads is bad enough, New Haw location should be a squeeze!

    What sight is this?

    from the bore sighting label, and the graticule adjusters, the L4A1 is the chieftain gunner's night sight.

    Fv721 fox

    Just to add, I asked my colleague who drove a fox this weekend to a show, who said his gauge was showing 185-190f.

    Jeff, If the rads have tested ok, then its one of 4 things; lack of coolant-fill header to brim and bleed air out with engine running at temperature. coolant flow insufficient-water pump/drive belt/coolant passage blockage Insufficient cooling air flow through rads-rads fins blocking air flow? fan moving enough air? all plates fitted ? headgasket failure- run on fast idle with header tank cap open and filled to brim-are bubbles/coolant coming out on hard acceleration?
  15. outstanding! almost every engine we brits put in an AFV was detuned-why? nice to see someone bucking the trend!

    H test pointers

    Good luck, and well done for persevering. You have asked all the right questions, and are doing it absolutely right. I'm a firm believer in taking your test in the type of vehicle you intend to drive on the road. Virtually every squaddie takes his 'H' in a 432, and yes abbots are slightly narrower, but with limited rear vision, but take your time, practice, constantly check mirrors for road positioning, and always anticipate. Remember the examiner isn't there to catch you out-he just wants to see you are competent and confident.

    War & Peace Revival - 2018

    could it be the cost of a pitch; high price of w&p pitch=higher cost of trader's sale items. yes, I moaned about w&p, but went on the sat and was pleasantly surprised. Ignoring the bogs 'n' dosh debate, as a show it has got better, and to those who took part in arena runs-well done!

    H test pointers

    not practical or safe to leave the driver's position to check-if you've got access to a cvrt use that instead

    War & Peace Revival - 2018

    Sadly this seems to be a continuing experience for a growing number of previously loyal war&peace exhibitors who will probably never go there again. Why pay fee upon fee to the organisers who then charge Joe public to come in and look at your vehicle? Win-win for them........

    What BMC diesel engine is this?

    2.5 with the cast rocker cover. used in fx4 taxis, vans, tractors, canal boats, very loud engine, known for being gutless. From the pics it has some conversion brackets and fabricated bell housing adapter fitted. Boating fraternity would be interested...........

    VIP toilets

    surely they must realise we're not all suckers-there was enough tumbleweed blowing over the empty expanses last year. just another ploy to prise more out of your wallet!
