  1. I looked at these but I don't see any place they offer to sell to the general public. Do you know of a reseller that is available to non-military folks?
  2. Making major modifications like this could open you up to litigation if an accident happens and someone is hurt. Insurance companies love to find ways to avoid paying out a claim and a custom wheel modification is a great place to lay blame. I will watch this thread with great interest hoping someone will find a safe way to do this as I would like to have the run flat capability back as well. In my case it would be for some peace of mind during parades
  3. The insert is only part of the runflat system on the Ferret. The real workhorse of the system is the original tire sidewall that is so thick it can hold up the wheel, even when flat. All the insert does is hold the bead against the rim without air pressure so it doesn't pull of while driving flat. Just keeping the rubber ring in there and using a standard tire does not get you a runflat tire for the Ferret.
  4. Same here Andy. If I give the accelerator a couple pumps it would fire right away. Instead I don't touch the pedal, and I crank it till the oil light goes out. Then I hit the pedal and it starts. I do this mostly with the 2 speed generator in mind since oiling that before a start is indicated in the manuals.
  5. Thanks! Here is an updated one from a few months ago. I redid the messed up stencils a few weeks ago but don't have a pic of that yet
  6. I finally got my MOD request with the Merlin information for my Ferret. I have some evidence on the vehicle that it was in Gulf War 1 but I wanted to see what this group thought about the report. Looks like there was a transfer out of the 4th in the right time frame and then a transfer back in after the war. Not sure where the Scots DG was located at that time. Anyone have any insight or some experience reading these Merlin reports? Here is the link in case the screenshot doesn't come out: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/426150/response/1028523/attach/4/00EA85.pdf?cookie_passt
  7. What caliber bullet does the bren fire? I thought it was .30....
  8. I believe that is the spot for the bracket that holds the .30 cal gun when stowed in the vehicle. There is another area towards your left foot where the other bracket goes.
  9. It sounds like the relay/circuit is getting constant power when the head lights are on. This assumes it works right when the headlights are off, as you said. As I said before, the relay isnt wired right. At least thats where you should start checking for wiring problems. Once you verify that the relay is set up to only get fed from the master cylinder switch I would start looking at the junction block in the back to make sure you dont have a running light wire feeding a brake light.
  10. This sounds to me like your brake light relay isn't wired right. Do you hear it clicking when you step on the brake?
  11. Def no spring down there for the pedal. Mine had a similar problem and it just needed the "pipe on the level" trick as you described
  12. The Jolley kit is pricey but worth it. The points setup in my Ferret was just never quite right...
  13. If anyone is in thier Ferret over the next few days, it would be great to hear someone else test like I am and see if they hear a difference from 1st to 5th. Just put the fwd/rev level in neutral and engage the gears from 1 to 5. Is 1 more quiet than 5? I took all the tins off and changed the older oil out for fresh which did quiet things down a bit. Knowing what somebody else is hearing may help me me decide if I am hearing a bad bearing or straigh cut gears....
  14. You have to remove the gearbox mounts to drain the oil? There is an access port on the bottom that the manual says is for gearbox drain. Does that not work?
