  1. You are very welcome. The majority of American military vehicle manuals are available freely online (unlike the British equivalents). Joel.
  2. A number of Argo parts/operator manuals can be found on this website.
  3. I believe it is a Hobart ARC Welder (WELDING OUTFIT, ELECTRIC ARC-No. 17-W-1715). It is talked about in TM 9-834 pages 38-50.
  4. Does anyone have a user manual (or similar) for Jagdpanzer Kanone 90mm? It doesn't matter which language the user manual is written in.
  5. Quick question: how are Lucas glass lens covers made? Are they somehow molded? I am referring to the type found on a large amount of military vehicles: Kind Regards, Joel
  6. I will look forward to it, are you going to bring your jeep?
  7. Excellent, I will see you there Alex. I have also found that Tankfest visitors are very interested in the history of the exhibited vehicles. We look forward to seeing you there Clive.
  8. I believe the talk by Edward Fox is exclusive to the Directors Enclosure. However, the other events aren't restricted to the Directors Enclosure. It should be noted I no longer work for the museum (I am just a volunteer) - I noticed we hadn't posted anything about Tankfest 2014. Which exhibit are you bringing Clive?
  9. [h=1]TANKFEST 2014 - The World’s best display of moving armour returns to The Tank Museum![/h]Experience the best display of historic moving armour in the world at The Tank Museum – bringing the story of tanks, tank crew and soldiers to life... Historic vehicle displays will include vehicles making their show debuts, with a number of old favourites returning to the arena. TANKFEST NEWS: Watch this space for all the exciting news relating to Tankfest 2014 as it is announced. The British Army The Armoured Trials and Development Unit (ATDU) has once again agreed to demonstrate
  10. Hi Terry, I just noted one of the missing pages (page 6). For others interested, the link can be found here.
  11. The charging set seems like an excellent place to start. I have just downloaded the manual from another thread. Its now just the question of locating one. Thanks for your help.
  12. Does anyone know if the eastern block tank sales company located in Lancashire/Yorkshire is still trading?
  13. Volunteering at the Tank Museum had allowed me to maintain and operate some very interesting vehicles. I have become very interested in engine internals. As such, I would like to set myself a task of rebuilding an engine. Can anyone suggest a suitable 'starter engine'? something military, relatively small, well documented and that has good parts availability.
  14. This is a very interesting restoration. Out of curiosity, what has been involved in the engine rebuild? Is it a full disassemble - clean in a parts washer - visual inspection and then back together? Edit: how far does the disassemble stage go - for example, are the sleeves removed from the block?
  15. I recently read about the technique of lead loading. This technique seems very common on classic car restorations. It involves filling the pitted metal with lead solder.
  16. Anyone that has undertaken a military vehicle restoration (or any kind of restoration on a vehicle of a certain age) will undoubtedly faced the problem of pitted metal surfaces. From personal experience, I have found the worst candidates are on side skirts and mud guards - particularly on areas normally covered by storage boxes. Normally, the affected areas would be cut out and replacements would be fabricated with fresh metal. Has anyone had any experiences of 'resurfacing' pitted metal? I know the Belzonacompany produces "a metal repair composite for rebuilding pitting and metal loss cau

  18. Hi Mark, I am sure that a couple of members of the forum have purchased Snatch Landrovers from Withams - one of which is taking it back to Northern Ireland spec. Was there any particular questions that you had regarding the vehicle? There is currently a Snatch Landrover on the Withams Auction site (at time of posting £1500.00) - see link here. Many Thanks, Joel
  19. I remember someone who volunteers with me at the Museum saying that they had got their Ferret recovered by the AA (or possibly RAC) - apparently it went on the back of an AA low-loader.
  20. Cheers Andy - That is all I wanted to know.
  21. I have been reading the many threads on this subject - its a tricky one. Q: have the issues being faced by the 432 been addressed with the bulldog upgrade program?
  22. Thanks for the pictures - they are great! (must take an age to upload!). Myself and a few friends will be down next Saturday - but until then this thread is wetting my appetite. Cheers, Joel
  23. Cheers Guys, Regarding what vehicle I will be getting - not sure as yet (maybe a 432). I can give you a few details on the test - we did a few manoeuvres: * Pulling out from behind stationary traffic. * Reverse around a corner. We did a few laps up and down the road - I believe the fee (according to DVLA website) is £62. To be honest - it was very similar to my car test (minus a few manoeuvres). Joel.
  24. Cheers Alan, It was good we all passed - expert tuition from Tony and Brian. We all had our moments - I just started my test and a coach came around the corner! Joel.
  25. Hello Community, I have just passed my Category H! Was tested yesterday - got a total of 0 faults! Thought I would share my victory with the community. Cheers, Joel
