  1. I need replacement tyres on my Fox, it currently has the original Dunlop Runflats which are starting to crack. I have been offered some new 12x20 bargrips. can these be fitted to the Fox instead of the 11x20’s or are they likely to cause damage to the vehicles running gear?
  2. It was a combination of the filter and the fuel tap. I have bypassed the filter with an inline one until I can source the parts to overhaul it and also the fuel tap for the same reason.
  3. The Humber is finally up and running. Does anyone have a listing of the appropriate original lubricants and the modern equivalents. I have the handbooks etc but they don’t specify which ones to use BA79878A-BA72-41C5-8F6B-4A09C1466A42.mp4
  4. Thanks for the replies, I will give it another go at the weekend 🙂
  5. I will take it out again at the weekend, strip it and double check it’s put together correctly. I have already checked the feed pipes are clear so if it’s still not pumping I don’t know what the problem is.
  6. My mechanical fuel pump packed up a couple of weeks ago. I took it off (not the easiest task) put in an overhaul kit and have refitted it. I cleaned the pipes and filter but there is still no fuel being fed through. I am considering bypassing it and fitting an electric fuel pump (leaving the disconnected one in situ Has anyone fitted an electric fuel pump to a Pig who can suggest which would be the best one to fit? Any advice appreciated Thanks Norman
  7. Oil procured, hatch now working, I still need to source replacement seals as it still seeps. However, I can now drive without difficulty 🙂 many thanks for advice given Norman
  8. Excellent, thank you very much, I will hopefully get it sorted this weekend 🙂
  9. I do have the complete assembly, as there is no bleed nipple I assume it bleeds itself through operation ( like power steering?) the air in the system is preventing the hatch from fully raising, I am having to peer through a smaller opening and apart from giving me neck ache the Pig is going through our Jersey DVS next month for its full inspection prior to its registration. Restricted visibility would probably mean a fail ☹️
  10. Thanks for that info, much appreciated. is there a bleed nipple anywhere or is there anything else I need to know before I attempt the fix? thanks again Norman
  11. Afternoon all my Pig has had a fluid seeping from the Drivers hatch hydraulics, it has now stopped seeping but the hatch only opens halfway. i am going to remove the piston and clean / replace the seals but is there any particular hydraulic fluid I should use to refill? Ta Norman
  12. I have managed to locate its sheet from the RLC database, but any further info would be appreciated, especially photos
  13. Thanks for that but mine is 27BK21 not 27BK51 🙂
  14. Thanks, they are now ticked off my original ‘wants list’.
  15. I have just taken delivery of a Humber FV1611 Pig (27BK21) and a Harley-Davidson MT350 (Military reg not known) where can I find service records for the Pig? And is it possible to ID the reg number for the MT350 from the VIN?
