  1. Go when the website says your vehicle exempt. https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-exempt-from-vehicle-tax You may need to wait until April.
  2. It doesn’t have to be a main post office. I have done it at a few different ones. You just need to find one with helpful and competent staff. Where I used to live the little village post office were very helpful and less of a queue than a main post office.
  3. I’ve changed tax class to historic on 4 vehicles so far. It is very easy. Take the V5 to the post office, tell them what you want to do and walk out 5 mins later with it all sorted. A new V5 appears in the post, the next year you can renew the tax online for free.
  4. Yes Normandy last year... Looks like you’re all good now 👍🏻
  5. Seems to work for me? Posted from my phone.
  6. I've been using Prestone from Costco for years.
  7. It’s all here. https://www.gov.uk/historic-vehicles
  8. You won’t find new 6.50 tyres, but there are plenty of clones in the 7.50 size. I got Deestones but I believe there are also some branded as Security & Flamingo.
  9. No. Works fine on both iPhone & PC for me.
  10. You could try this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/221381003339
  11. Oil type and capacity is in here: https://www.greenmachinesurplus.com/cvrx28tx29x28dx29maintenance-schedule-1247-p.asp Filter number is either on the tag on the unit or in the parts book: https://www.greenmachinesurplus.com/cvrx28tx29x28dx29common-itemsillustrated-parts-list-2896-p.asp https://www.thexmod.com/item_detail.asp?id=3076&t=Filter_Hydrallic_Gearbox__270L123_/_AS061926
  12. Hi Graham, I have some parts, but not the ring or mantlet. Chris
  13. There was one at Tanks, Trucks & Firepower last month.
  14. Maybe https://www.hamptonsuk.co.uk Or https://www.crouchmilitarysales.co.uk
  15. Hi, In your Spartan the intercom and radio are powered separately, but both should be powered from the second set of batteries by the back door. There is a separate master switch for this. Do you have the manuals? Chris
