  2. Good luck Tim..Let us now how you progress....
  3. Why not use the latest and best penetrating lubricant instead of oil or diesel fuel...
  4. When I got my Ferret all my hinges were frozen too....The front hatch I could barely move with a 6 ft long pry bar...What I did was everyday I soaked them in WD40 penetrating lubricant and tried to move them...After about 25 days or so doing this I switched to PB Blaster (much better) penetrating lubricant and was finally able to move them then sprayed again for days always moving them back and forth with the pry bar working the lubricant in...Go to your auto/truck parts store and talk with them about the latest and best penetrant to use...There are always new products coming out on the market and I try them..Good luck to you.

  20. That spring is the BUSBAR SPRING and yes it can kill you if you open the cover up without knowing how to properly release the pressure...Your BUSBAR spring came off the rod most likely caused by improper operation of the GCP...The BUSBAR spring and it's rod needs to be properly set up now and hopefully nothing is broken inside......You need to get the manuals for your Ferret...Get all the manuals..One main manual is SCOUT CAR,FERRET,ALL MARKS USER HANDBOOK.....In that manual page 119 under Servicing-Gear Change Pedal you can find out more.......What country are you in ?
