    B Series Starter motor windings.

    I believe there is a company up near Preston that is reconditioning older units such as yours. I am about to get in touch with them, i need two 432 starters and a CVRT generator looking at. I do have some spare take off B starters, what parts do you need ?

    Stolly without a brolly (or anything else to protect it)

    Ditto. I am also half looking into the 'disconnect' option. Awaiting knowledge from a superior being !

    I bought a Shielder

    Well done on the escape hatch. It looks like it is in good order, and anything that is not, will be. It should be a very useful vehicle for you.

    Tarland, I hope these photos go some way to answering your questions ?

    Alvis shielder drivers manual asked

    Many thanks 'FS' for the manual, that will be a big help, especially for the fitting of radios. Hi Tarland. Two small pumps on front sponsons operated by fire crew, moving or stationary. One larger pump on rear, again operated by fire crew. Two IBC's on board, sometimes four. All systems on the Shielder seemed to stand the heat pretty well. The tracks appear to have not been damaged. Especially after working hard every day for eight days ! I'll find some more photos.

    We recently offered our services to Lancashire fire service to help with the fires on winter hill nearby us, they were quick to accept our offer ! the vehicle turned out to be ideal, accessing areas that were otherwise out of reach.

    Saracen hill climbing

    Thanks for that Andy, I will be all over the fuel system early next week. The sarry can be seen trying to keep up with the shielder in this video taken earlier this evening. I'm in the shielder, and Dave is driving the Sarry More of an incline rather than a hill, but still could not get revs up in third gear. We will keep exploring options. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it !

    Thanks for the reply Trophy. I currently have 20 x 12 trakgrips on. She has done 52mph before now on a flat road, (closed road !) therefore she can be a good one when she wants. I think the next thing to try will be timing ! Stay tuned Thanks again.
