EMER for Cent Mk III RBJ

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

i don't suppose anyone out there has any information on the RBJ for the Mk 3 agent?

 

just started to go through the turret wiring on the IWM's Cent and someone has disconnected everything.

Now I don't know whether it's a RBJ that is originally fitted to Mk3's, but the FV No is

FV31559

 

Any help much appreciated

 

Paul

Not so sure that this is what you're after but it might help a bit.  The wires in the terminal banks have a stamped number which helps match them up.

Cheers Aussie,

The RBJ we've got us the one detailed in plates M29 and M30, so it's fair to say that the Cent we're restoring to Mk3 status is not a Mk3 but a later version (whether it was a Mk3 at one point is a different matter).

Have you any more info to go with those plates?

 

cheers

Paul

Sorry Paul

Those are photos of plates but not sure what manual they're from, and the info relating to numbers wasn't included - so limited benefit!  Perhaps someone else will be able to help.

The only other bit I found was a circuit diagram which might be useful.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Just looking through the manuals.  It's got more connections than a Mk 3, but it's a completely different RBJ on Centurion mk 7, 8, 9 and 10.

Hi James,

That's not a problem, I think that as Lauren points out it's for when it was changed to a Mk V
