  1. 27BK21 I have it as FV1611 APC up armoured and modified to Mk 2 for use in Northern Ireland. Clive will confirm all.
  2. Many thanks for the photos, was more like driving in the desert. Pig looked weather beaten after that. We had driver Dean in the right hand seat and myself as photographer, great fun.
  3. Finally got my Humber Pig on the road reg 21BK96 Mk2 up armoured. Was with Hq Belfast for few years. First show was Yorkshire Wartime weekend.
  4. Police were worried about stopping it, if it ran away with crowds on both sides of the high street. Be some none technical type.
  5. Drive a Mk 2 Pig steadily, remembering to use 1st gear to set off in and selecting the four wheel drive will ease the strain on the drive train. Have to remember its 2.5 Ton overloaded. As heavy footed drivers can and will break half shafts. Then a long hard job to change and locate a spare. Lots of owners do remove the internal armour, could be replaced with plywood and covered with 1/16th steel sheet to look the part, others just remove it and have more room. Mine is a true Mk2 with all the armour, but was converted from a Missile launcher Armoured. So as its not a normal Pig will keep it as used in Northern Ireland with its history. Registration 21BK96 Normal servicing with oils and grease will keep it happy. Doing it every 250 miles will keep the suspension happy, with oil injected with a grease/oil gun. Will take most part of a day to check all the oil levels, but you will have the satisfaction of owning a wonderful piece of engineering from the Humber factory. What ever you get, enjoy it. Nigel.
  6. I have 1 in the shed, complete on the rim and with plenty of tread. Pm me if interested, £200.
  7. Well said, we know its a none starter, totally rubbish, Europe and the world will have our excess petrol, diesel to run their cars on. While we are sent back to the stone age.
  8. Hi, I would like the 2 boxes, please private message me, Nigel.
  9. Hi, I have an engine block in good condition, 3 bearing, cam shaft in it, stripped bare, bores greased up, £100 Sheffield area, Nigel.
  10. The plastic clips are cheap and nasty, its a gearbox removal to fit them, a common fix is to weld a metal strip that holds the clutch ball in place. As even removing the clutch slave cylinder can break the plastic clip. A 16p clip and your off the road.
  11. Got to register it too. Think I sold a starter motor to you. Regards Nigel.
  12. I have the User Handbook and EMERs, im near Sheffield, will do Yorkshire war time and if possible War time in the Vale which is more your territory. I knew you were moving but hadn't realised you went to Wales. Hope all is well there. Thank you Clive, will pm you. Nigel.
  13. Thank you Clive, its wonderful to have a piece of history, I have the brake cylinders to change, a general service and front hydraulic hatches to get working. Then run my Pig, want to show it and enjoy driving it. Is it possible to send me a copy of the record card, can that be done with a pm. Thank you once again Nigel.
  14. The chassis plate does not show a FV number, but what is interesting, at the top right hand corner, the designation Launcher has been chiselled out.
  15. The work your doing is fantastic, from the rusty starting point to what has been achieved now is truly wonderful. Keep up the great restoration. Nigel.
  16. 21BK96 Humber Pig, photo's of the inside, engine, chassis and engine number. Far as I can see looks a standard cab interior. Hope this helps Clive.
  17. Thank you Clive, I have found in some paperwork that my Humber was a missile platform, since you high lighted it. I will get photos when I have daylight to record them. Nigel.
  18. Hi Clive, can you explain on its history a little please. I will sort some pictures for you, for as I know Wheatcroft bought 4 from the ministry and I have owned it ever since, 07/08/93. Its totally untouched inside and out, apart from I had to cut the left hand rear aerial mount off to get past my house. Nigel.
  19. I have a Humber Pig mk2 up armoured, not been touched for 20 years, it still has the lot number and blue cross painted on the front, registration 21BK96. I am the first owner after the Wheatcroft Collection purchased 4 from the Ministry. Engine running correctly now, brakes to do next. Nigel.
  20. So what problems occur with synthetic dot 5, I was wondering, as a cure to stop cylinders seizing on a ferret ?
  21. I have a Humber 1 ton, all brakes to do, then same on a ferret, so be 6 month project !
  22. Fill bearings with a light general purpose grease, then squirt few shots of 90 grade oil with oil can, preload bearings and back off the nut, so bearings run smooth without any vertical movement of hub.
  23. Wanted a new, or as new Land rover 109 full canvas in plain army green, to swap for a new 110 full canvas in army green with all the poles and door fixtures. Pm me please.
  24. Wanted, Aerial poles that fit on the outside of a Humber 1 Ton Radio body, Aluminium poles 4 foot 6 inch long, form a 40 foot mast, 10 poles per side.
