  1. Thanks for this, I had a good look over mine recently and cannot find any sign of a registration number
  2. Thats interesting, I will take A look at the weekend thanks for advice Norman
  3. Occasionally after disconnecting and reconnecting the starter leads the voltage reads 28-30 and doesn’t fluctuate at all when the panel illumination switch is turned on
  4. Apologies for delayed reply, I had to go to work. Generator is No1 Mk2-1. photos attached show yellow and red lights OFF when ignition is ON ( hard to see due to sun). Vehicle started with crank as starter lever didn’t do anything. voltage gauge on right side reading 24v. Turning lights on doesn’t alter it but turning the panel illumination switch on knocks voltage down to 15v. problem with starter motor is that is doesn’t engage with the flywheel ring.

  5. By ignition lights I mean the oil / generator lights. The vehicle has a voltage gauge wired up in a panel along with a wind up clock generator is the smaller one bolted to front of passenger seat No2 Mk1/2 ( I think) will have to check tomorrow I’ve only had it a few weeks so not sure how long it’s played up, what I don’t understand is why it seems to alternate between the two problems
  6. I’m confused, As my starter motor is playing up at the moment ( replacement on order) I have been connecting and disconnecting the cables etc. as a result of this sometimes the ignition lights don’t light up but the gauges move and the engine starts with the crank or they light up and engine starts normally When the engine is running the voltage gauge is around 22-25, turning the lights on doesn’t make it fluctuate, however, the red light bulb lights up very very dimly, but if I turn on the panel lights then the volts dip really low and the red light illuminates bright. other times after disconnecting and reconnecting the starter all ignition lights work every time but starter either works or squeals ( not engaging ring), however, voltage gauge reads high, no glow on red light and panel lights do not affect voltage reading. any ideas? Is it a starter motor fault affecting everything else or do I need to start checking wiring loom?
  7. Agreed, red/white hackle was Northumberland Fusiliers, later Royal Fusiliers when serving in NI
  8. Very considerate of them, can’t make out the Regiment, Something (?) Fusiliers possibly
  9. That’s interesting, I will have another look at mine tomorrow thank you
  10. More the seagulls, may need more missiles too😆
  11. I’m still trying to complete my Rapier Launcher, need to find a ‘Screamer’ generator next. one question I have is about registration numbers. All military trailers have their own number, usually stamped on the chassis plate. I can’t find a chassis plate on mine with a number on it, were these trailers issued a number or did they carry the tow vehicles number?
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. 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
