Snatch newbie questions

Recommended Posts

hi all,

 

extremely new to owning a snatch (first mil vehicle) and trying to slowly work through exactly all the bits etc so have a few inital questions if anyone can please help?

 

1. the rear bumperettes have two moulded holes running horizontally on the inside support basically facing each other. I've not seen any photos on the net for any possible use for these. Any ideas what they are?

2. On the right hand side three switch control above there is a seperate switch which i believe is for aux wiring. If so where should i look to see the cable or socket for this?

3. The right hand side heater controls has a red perspex piece of plastic that basically slides down and locks the direction and heater arm controls. Is this for any particual reason?

4. My snatch has the barracuda camo system apart from the front windscreen which i think is rare to find these days? My plan is to have a trimmer friend make one if i can source some extra barracuda. I can see the front screen grill has loops to secure it to at the bottom but i cannot see where on the top of the screen or grill that is fixes to. Any ideas / close up pics? If anyone have one of these panels for the front screen i would really appreacite any photos ideally rolled out if possible (pm is fine) so that i can pass onto my trimmer to make.

 

sorry for question overload just an exicted dirty snatch owner lol

 

cheers

Rick

attached is a photo of the windscreen cam net i would like more info and ideally some better close up pictures if anyone can help.

 

in the other pic you can see the red perspex item i was asking about.

Between that and the three swtiches is another one kinda hidden unless you zoom it. This is i "believe" the aux switch that i would like to discover what its for and where to find what it powers please.

 

I'll post some pics of the bumperettes at the weekend hopefully.

 

thanks

Rick

The red slider was something to do with stopping you operating the heater controls with the aircon on if i remember rightly.

Yay another fellow Snatch owner.

 

Welcome to HMVF and Snatch ownership both great things.

 

1. no idea on the bumperrte question, maybe there for securing large antenta masts when static.

 

2. not sure what the switch is for, mine just goes into the loom and ive not tracked it yet

 

3 possibly to stop the heater being used at all when in hot climates

 

4 i am due to pic up a windscreen camo at northen expo on 4th november, I can get measurements and pics for you.

 

you can get history for you Snatch for free by making a FOI to the MOD.

 

Lastly try joining the The Land Rover Snatch Club on facebook, as they have lots of files/manuals and pics on there and much more knowledgeable people than me on there who are happy to help wit questions and other things Snatch and non Snatch related. you might need an invite but just PM me and i will send you one.

 

Ps Any pics or history of you Snatch

 

Hope this helps

The windshield has a dust cover/sun protector, same as the doors these were put on to protect the armoured glass from the sun and heat. I think the modern wolf snow covers are the same but with no camo. I will check with a few friends on that. The red bracket is for the the defroster and floor air. It was put on so that only the defroster with hot air would blow, since the vehicles had AC in the back. I don't know if the floor or internal vents tubes were taken off I can't remember.

Hello Tyler

 

The http://www.northernmilitaryexpo.co.uk is on Sunday the 3rd of November. There are some pictures of Pauls Snatch on our web site http://www.callsignalpha.co.uk'>http://www.callsignalpha.co.uk now its been returned to green !

 

I will be with Paul and I have just spent a week rewiring the lights - I used about 150 lucas bullets and connectors the desert had really corroded the connections underneath really bad

 

At least the lights are nice and bright now

 

Next job is to sort the antennas to soemthing like and have a look at the air con

 

all the best

 

Nick

Nickffr that possibly sounds like the Paul I am collecting the camo from, as he has just returned his back to NI spec

 

Defv8 Ive heard good things of the expo, site says 200+ stalls, from bullets to vehicles for sale, i remember when it was about 20 stalls, although ive not been up recently, and an added bonus is the air museum is right next door to make the day more worth while.

Donk/matt, do you mean the h frame or the panel that the H frame mounts to or both?

I can get you pics and measurements of any along with the wire cutter if you need them, I do know a trader at War and peace revival had a bundel of wire cutters for sale, also the wire cutters vaired dependent on weather its NI or Iraq or afgan spec that you want to represent.

No prob Matt, I'll be removing the camo anyway to fix a leak on the roof, I already have the wire cutter measurements and pics from mine as I measured it for someone else, in the meantime it might be worth joining the Facebook group and seeing if any members on there have any of the items you need. from memory it was mattblack aka Colin who saw the wire cutters for sale at W&PR so he might remember the trades name.

 

I noticed in one of your other posts your after the camo, I might be able to help with that also.

 

I'll post pics and measurements shortly.

The facebook group is not viewable or searchable unfortunately, so you need an invite and approval by an admin, If you pm me you email address i can invite you to the group, and then hopefully an admin will accept.

 

mine has most of its camo, but I am due to pick up a complete set of camo this weekend and i will use parts of that to complete mine, so I will have some spare camo parts
