  1. Also take the opportunity to tighten EVERY nut, bolt & Hose coupling whilst you have the pack out! You will notice that some joins are lock wired. This will give you confirmation that these packs vibrate like hell when running in the vehicle! Running up outside the hull is the only way to detect fluid leaks on these packs as well. especially the heat exchanger! You could try taking the cables off the panel after labelling them, if you cant read the connection umbers. & find out which is the one for the starter. by pushing one cable at a time. Onto the distribution
  2. The gearbox MUST be in neutral & IIRC there was a transmission lever that should also be in neutral. I think this is at the bottom of the pack itself.

So Many it had a repair shop for Bicycles of it's own.
  4. Interesting that the Box is stencilled 'Boxes Veh Mechanic'. As Bicycles came under the Unit Armourers For Repairs & Maintaninance. Note the green small metal tins also. They are Bren / LMG spare parts tins. Used in the Spare Parts wallets for this range of guns.
  5. Probably to be replaced with AJAX. Similar vehicle, but with Larger Gun in it's turret. It does the same job as Warrior, but is a newly introduced AFV to UK Military Service.
