From CVRT scorpion Wreck to running Sabre

Another break from the turret/fighting compartment, time to fix the sound (exhaust & silencer) so not deafening the whole surroundings everytime we start the engine. 

Since the old brackets had deteriorated completely I had bought new ones at grenmachinesurplus. Fairly easy to replace and then mount self-adhesive heat shield found at local car parts store. The new silencer I bought through a member of this forum

As for smoke dischargers I have only found replica bases sofar, The actual tubes are something else out of metal and preliminary, but painted they will do until I am ready to source tubes with right dimensions

About to check the oil level in the wheel hubs and the identifying a tired a torsion bar to replace on the right side. Quickly we found out the effects of too many short garage starts with too long time in between.  

Result 1: a full day trying to solve a fuel pump gone amok just to find that it was a stuck float in the carburettor that was the cause, with the effect that whole system became flooded with fuel - learning: secure empty carburettor before storage (in this case only a month/couple of weeks was enough)

Result 2: 3-4 cylinders igniting with huge white /grey smoke screen as effect. Learning: cleaned spark plugs makes a whole world of difference :)

We'll take the torsion bar thing next time..
