  3. So, I have two plug removal tools in my possession. One for sure is the Ferret fluid flywheel tool, in these photos it is the lower one and the one with the external hex shape on the end. The other one is of the same style of design but the plug it removes is a larger one and the tool has a different FV number. What is this other tool for, I would love to know as it is driving me potty
  4. I HAVE DEVELOPED AN INTEREST IN AN ALVIS SALADIN AND WOULD BE INTERESTED IN ACQUIRING ONE. ANY CONDITION CONSIDERED BUT MUST BE MOSTLY COMPLETE. THANKS andrew@honychurch.com
  5. Hi Could anyone clear something up for me. Post 1997 standard car Licence 1954 Daimler Ferret Mk1 which weighs around 3.7ton As it stands is it legal to drive the Ferret on this licence? Also any other potential issues/pitfalls? Many Thanks.
  6. Having just stripped out the fuel lines and filter I have found a pile of goo and other mess in the Vokes fuel filter and in the Banjo filter at the carb. All of this is making me think I need to clean out the tank. How does one get it out? Turret removal? If one pulls it back into the seating area how easy is it to clean ? Can it be drained and cleaned in situ? In addition the carb looks very black and dirty. Any ideas welcomed.## Peter
  7. Good Evening all, Thank you for allowing me to join the forum. I bought a 1963 Mk1 Ferret just over a year ago. I'm having great fun keeping it going, and recreating what I remember of these vehicles from my youth when my father was attached to 4RTR in Hohne. Lots of good stuff on this forum which has been very useful so far - thank you! Howard.
  8. We have probable one of the nicest, well maintained Whistlers about, and can be seen at this years W&P. Life is too short to stockpile vehicles, so we're thinking of trading it for a Ferret or similarly interesting military vehicle. ours is spotlessly maintained, and fully roadworthy, yours needs to be in similar condition. Pictures on request to serious enquirers. Si 07702 185604
  9. Hi all I have ferret which I am about to start restoring. The ferret is not currently registered with the dvla , and I am wondering what is the best time to try and get the ferret registered. Its currently not running, and no electrics are working. I suppose question is does it need to be road worthy before attempting to get the vehicle registered or is it good enough just to be a fairly complete vehicle ? any advice would be great. Cheers Darren
  10. I have recently got myself a ferret project, it was a restored vehicle but unfortunately the shed where it was stored caught fire and caused a lot of cosmetic damage, as well as melting a good part of the wiring loom. The owner then dragged it outside where it sat in the weather for quite a few years, this has caused more damage than the fire. I have been working towards getting it running and driving, just to make sure I have a good gearbox and engine before I strip it down completely for restoration. I have freed up the frozen pedals and got the engine running and have started on the gearbox. Opening the top cover of the box reveals very clean internals with very little rust, this was a nice surprise. That's where the good news stopped though as the gear change pedal doesn't seem to do anything, I can move the gear change lever on the side of the box through it's full range of movement by hand, it is obviously not engaging the busbar. I started to open the side cover where the spring is but got nervous and stopped when there was obviously a lot of spring pressure behind it. Has anyone seen this problem before, or can anyone advise me of how to fix it? Is it possible for the busbar pushrod to fall out of position? With thanks
  11. Last week I bought this 1940 Enfield pistol and had a couple three questions 1.On the back of the grip frame POL LUN is this short for Police London? 2. Was the Enfield pistol used with a Ferret? 3. Was the bobbed hammer double action only model used by tankers?
  12. I am finally starting the removal of the fenders and boxes on my ferret - The question is how does one disconnect the wiring from the junction box on the body for the turn signals, headlight and smoke discharger? Thanks
  13. I didnt think it would be so hard to find but I did locate one finally - 1919 MG mount for my ferret. The barrel and shroud are easy to find here in the US. The ferret came with the GPMG mount and those parts are high dollar here.
  14. Does anyone have a ferret or have ever seen one that has tie down points on the FRONT armour plate just up from the bottom edge? I am not asking about the ones on the sides at the front. I am well familiar with those. Can you post a picture of the vehicle please and do you know its original registration please? Robin
  15. When the Ferret was introduced into Canadian service it was the only vehicle with the central round style slave socket, which has become the NATO standard it seems. The other vehicles in the CF (Canadian Forces) usage at the time had the American style with the two offset pins. As I bumble around trying to assemble things for my Canadian Ferret I was pondering one day as to how the Ferrets could have been slave started by anything other than another Ferret if there was no adapter. So, knowing there are some smart people on Maple Leaf Up I posted this question over there and CMPMAN aka Rob Love replied that my suspicion was correct and that there was a special short cable and that he happened to have one in his special shed. I coincidentally had a trinket that turns out he could use so we did a swap by mail. I am now the proud owner of a quite uniquely Canadian piece of kit for a Canadian Ferret. My thanks go to Rob Love for his generosity. Regards Robin
  16. I was finally able to close the deal two days ago. I have been researching the Canadian involvement in UNEF in 1956, the Suez Crisis as it has been called. I was willing to settle for a non-running vehicle that needed work just to have that direct link to the UN's first peace keeping force. Lester Pearson later to be the Prime Minister of Canada had recommended that the UN send in a multi-national force to calm the escalating crisis in the Suez. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his proposal. 23 Ferrets were sent aboard the aircraft carrier HMCS Magnificent to the Suez canal. 82-506 is one of them. Enough of the history lesson. To my surprise it actually runs very well. Gears, Stearing and all the lights are fully functional. I am considering restoring it to 1956 Squadron 56 UNEF. That would mean a 19 set radio and a Bren Gun. I would not paint it white but rather the m-series semi gloss olive drab. The ferrets were painted white a few years after they arrived in Egypt.
  17. Anyone know what vehicle this Sten gun mounting kit would have originally gone with? Assumed either a late service Daimler Scout Car or an early production Ferret since they would have transitioned over to Sterling SMGs and the 10-magazine holder is clearly marked for Sten mags. I've had it unissued in the original cardboard package padded with cotton waste for at least 12 years. No description on the carton and no installation documents or other reference as to how it all goes. Almost all of the parts have an "AF" prefixed part number if that helps to date it.
  18. We have a problem!... apart from the others this is a big one :nut: leaks from the differential prop shaft output - a faulty oil seal. Does anyone know how many oils seals if any (yes know about the fluid flywheel seal can) be replaced on the gearbox/diffferential/prop shaft drives without removing the gearbox - but maybe pulling it back and removing relevant bits?

  20. Hi, Just bought five new MRF NDMS 9 x16 tyres for our Ferret from Totec Tyres. Please can anyone tell us if we need to remove the runflat inserts and replace them with tyre gaiters? And if so where can we get suitable gaiters? Any tips on changing these tyres would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ......Diana and Jackie. PS... he has just had delivery of this hard to obtain tyre - we also got the tubes.
  21. Hello everyone A friend of mine has kindly allowed me to post his service photos from Aden. The ferrets which can be seen are: 86BA57, 04BB56?, 00CA67, 00CA69. As you can see, ferrets are without any bins or mudguards, and some have sand tyres, plus the rear light / jerrycan arrangement on 86BA57 Ferret 86BA57 is now bright yellow in Newcastle, if you know which one I mean. Great photo of a mine protected landy too (97EN26). Cheers Matt
  22. Hi .. Direct from Michelin :- we would suggest pressures for normal road use. Front Axle = 2006 kgs front tyres 40psi Rear Axle = 2387 kgs and rear tyres 46psi These pressures are based on the use of Michelin tyres in the size 255/100 R 16 XZL 126K TL with vehiclle fully loaded. D & J
  23. Hi All, Some clever clogs when replacing the Generator on our Ferret bent and fractured the holding/belt tensioning strap of the Generator in order to replace it. The first picture shows the fracture and the second shows the pin that needs to be removed to renew the strap. The problem is how to remove the pin which is held in two aluminium lugs which are between the generator strap. The wrong method will cause the lugs to break - anyone know how to get the pin out using the correct method? Thanks D&J
  24. This is an interesting one: Security Measures stepped-up in Sarawak A convoy of three ferret armoured cars of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders at a Shell Oil derrick recently, as security measures at the Shell Oil installations area in Miri Town, Sarawak, were stepped-up in the face of increasing threats from Indonesia. 1961 Can see 07CC29 07CC30 06CC88? Again, none of these ferrets are currently known to exist. They must have almost been brand new in this photo!
  25. Hi everyone. I am a new Bristish Ferret owner. I am a retired school teacher (27 years classroom, 5 years transportation director) and retired military (24+ years in the Iowa Army National Guard). My wife and I also own and operate a manufactured home community. I have started restoring the Ferret and have already ran across some issues with a rotten pick axe handle and a broken fire extinguisher bracket. I will be back to check for parts and other advice. Thanks for all you do, Ron Struble Manchester, Iowa USA Scout Car,Reconnaissance, Ferret, Mark 2/4, VHF 00 CA 82
