  1. all vehicles released from MoD will have form 654. Send the original with your V55/5 and your certificate of insurance (make sure your wheelplan is shown as 'crawler') sadly some vehicles are now recognised as unsuitable for road registration, and will be rejected, but CVRT are ok. And that's it, all you need without your official 654 you may have problems-the 654 form proves it is officially released, and gives the DIS which DVLA use as date of first registration
  2. should be engine oil. Hypoid 90 is way too thick and will struggle to pass through the fine filter used on this gearbox
  3. Hawker gel UK6TN batteries for sale £50 each
  4. storage available in secure large building. full road 24hr access. light power and water included.space available now
  5. Looking at the underside, the 2 brass pins cannot have external thread on them as that is a bearing surface, so it looks like they are pressed in from either side, with the internal thread for extraction. the oil jets in the crankcase are obviously aimed at that oversized bearing surface!
  6. theres a wealth of knowledge and experience on here. When buying take someone with you who knows the market and knows what to look for on an abbott. Parts are scarce and becoming very expensive, so another set of eyes can save you a lot of money! Abbott should just be in width, but cannot be legally road registered anymore as they do not comply with construction and use regulations since they do not have a secondary braking system (one of the reasons the 432 fleet was 'life extended')
  7. the big end bearing is sheer genius-that is definitely thinking outside the box! On the crakcase to barrel surface, is that an oil jet orifice? and why the 2 offset slots in the piston?
  8. super heavy duty waterproof proper ex army tarpaulin for sale. Very heavy-min. 2 man lift. in very good condition, no damage, no rips or tears, all eyelets undamaged etc. Ideal for vehicle(s) coverage, roofing etc. Pickup only-east kent £95
  9. it looks like two four cylinder engine combined back to back. As the exhaust ports in the cylinder open into the crankcase-is the exhaust vented out through a hollow driveshaft?
  10. has anyone bought one of these or used them in civvy street? any good?
  11. Hi Bob, L3A1 is the british practice grenade, I think the screw in fuse/ handle top has slots either side of the flange that this would fit into. but I may be wrong!...... terry
  12. check out the cute Steyr-puch Haflinger or its bigger brother the Pinzgauer both have incredible off road capability. Pinzgauer is still in use with the MoD but quite recently some really nice condition late turbo diesels were auctioned off by withams at reasonable prices
  13. I found a boxed item with part no 9cvt 1015 99 821 4880-can anyone tell what vehicle this is for please?
  14. thank you-I never knew they used small tugs and trolleys! but it does make sense. National Trust now owns large areas at st margarets and its good to see gunsites Jane and Clem now being excavated and restored
  15. ok, no one else has rumbled this-lets see.....analy retentive council planning officers? three tubs of vaseline ? anyone know of a suitable ending........
  16. There were quite a few very large calibre gun installations at the st margarets, and bearing in mind the hilly terrain, how did they get such large calibre ammunition to the batteries, and how was it moved from the magazines to the guns? The gun sites are open to the public, but its a puzzle as to how they shifted 15" shells around?
  17. nice 432 just now advertised on milweb-asking 16500. Be quick if you're serious otherwise it will be gone (probably for a conversion).........
  18. a lot of maybes, plenty of scaremongering, and a whole load of new additional fees just waiting in the wings. lets just hope we impose those same new tarifs on traffic entering.
  19. Does anyone know what it sold for?
  20. its so compact-slip on a bell housing, clutch and gearbox, that would make one awesome custom!
  21. Brilliant-look forward to it-thanks ploughman.
  22. wow! $122500 profit! and I thought my estate agent was being greedy!
  23. wow they had some really good toys then-how on earth was it all done without modern electronics-especially the planes!
  24. both have their pros and cons, personally I love CVRT's to drive but track supply is extremely difficult. Famously a cvrt was demonstrated doing a full throttle neutral turn at Bovington. It started turning with brand new track fitted. 24 minutes later the track pads were worn down to the steel ribs! brand new production 432 track pads are readily available to joe public at around a tenner each, held in by one nut and easily and quickly changed. although cvrt's can fetch north of £28000, a good 432 can still be found for under £20k
  25. It may not be the AVR, as all they do is sense output voltage and vary excitation voltage to suit. Most AVRs are totally sealed against moisture and have a protection fuse. Could be the windings at fault. There is a simple quick test that will show if your AVR is duff and demonstrate what the alternator is capable of producing get a competent person to do this first so you know where the fault lies
