  1. For clarity, Warrior was developed by GKN and has the RR CV8 and Allison box. It has single pin track with one pad per link and torsion bar suspension. AS90 was developed by VSEL before they merged under BAE and has the Cummins VTA903 engine and ZF box. It has a totally different hull that is bigger than Warrior. It has double pin track with 2 pads per link with hydrogas suspension. In service, no-one would go to the effort of trying to see if the Main Assemblies were interchangeable.
  2. For those who use radios, the new Ofcom proposals are worth a read as they will affect your radio licence. You should note the consultation period has expired. If you type in Ofcom EMF you should find it. It is about separation from the base of the antenna to people to keep them safe from EMF For a 25W marine VHF radio it is 2.04m using the Ofcom calculator. For a small boat, or military vehicles this separation will be difficult to achieve. If this is going to cause a problem, you can make a representation to Ofcom. This will be particularly relevant for marine VHF and heavy haulage esco
  3. Warrior and AS90 are completely different. Very little will be compatible apart from obvious items like weapon clips.

  5. Search for 1200r 20 tyres gives a number of companies selling them. Add off road and you get more options. Big tyres, se tyres, tyres guru and vrakking tires all come up with options. It must be easier to get the right size tyres which will solve the problem for 10 years. Ensure you are specific about the date - I could only get Aug 18 tyres for my EKA.
  6. If it is what I think it is, pull the jacking handle out a bit then push all the way down. When jacking, it will move between about 9 o'clock and 11 o'clock. To release, it needs to move to about 7 o'clock when viewed from the side.
  7. All, £672 for my Scammell EKA. Glad I don't have a Drops. Annoyingly, the dot code is 31 18 so already lost 2.5 years, and nothing newer available without adding significant cost.
  8. I found that my Clarke 7.5 CFM compressor is good enough for spray painting without running out of puff, and will intermittently run a 3/4 in impact wrench, but not full time, while a 1/2 in impact wrench was no problem. A 50l tank is good for portability, while 100l will give better endurance and run more powerful tools. Provided you do your homework, there is no reason why you can't buy good second hand kit. Again, go for the solution that best fits your needs and budget. T

  10. Don't forget you need a compressor to drive air tools. Go for 1.5 times tool air consumption for capacity. A compressor allows you to use an air blow gun to clean items and run a spray paint gun. Air tools are also good if working in the wet as there is no risk of electric shock (assuming the compressor is in the dry). Choose whatever suits your needs best.
  11. Try PB Asher in Southampton. Were good for me some years ago sourcing Japanese spec Isuzu items. Had injector and FIP test benches. Also had a small ( 4ft) ship injector for repair, so may be able to help.
  12. What is the question you want to ask them? Or are you researching the history?
  13. Wheels and Tracks was a print magazine that stopped a number of years ago. it was edited by Bart Vanderveen and was published by the same people that did After the Battle. https://www.afterthebattle.com/
