    Tent repair

    Shouldn't you sew rather than glue? Andy
  2. At the moment, but I wonder how long that will continue? Andy
  3. No ground connection as such, but the cable braid probably serves that function anyway? Andy
  4. I'm also bemused as to why they make the differentiation between those who do or don't hold an LGV licence. As a holder of both, I don't see that the LGV provides anything helpful for the H test. Andy
  5. I had to Google the NSN to find out what it was, I don't think I've ever seen one of those before. Without any further information I'd be inclined to replace any electrolytic capacitors on the circuit board as they are the most likely cause of age-related failure. Andy
  6. That makes sense - I carefully worked out how to get the Clansman harness working over the existing six core cable to the driver's box. Looking at an incomplete Abbot that had been officially converted to Clansman it seems they had done the same thing, keeping the existing cables and six-way junction box in the turret. Andy
  7. Drop them an email, that usually seems to work although it may take a while for them to respond. Andy
  8. Their training and test were all off-road (they'd built a nice circuit with road junctions and roundabout) so perhaps they were hit by the change in test requirements? They also used CVR(T)s, I took my test in a Scorpion. Andy
  9. A shame about SVT, they were where I did my H test. Andy
  10. Sounds like a quick call to the range supervisor was in order to prevent a potentially lethal accident? Andy
  11. That is indeed the 12-pin end. I don't have the other details to hand unfortunately as I'm away at the moment and my notebook is at home. Andy
  12. I still think it would be better just to replace the connector with one that fits. What vehicle is it on? Andy
  13. Is this a duplicate post to the other thread of the same name? Andy
  14. That's the SAE standard and it's been that way for ages, apparently to avoid incorrect polarity. It might be a good idea to just change the connector for one that fits correctly? Andy
  15. Unfortunately, as I discovered in my abortive attempt to build a barn, if the planners don't want you to do something they will stop you, no matter how much logic or common sense you bring to bear. Andy
  16. Apparently I've just been awarded my "One year" badge! 🙂 Andy
  17. A shame that it clashes with the postponed Overlord Show, otherwise I'd have come up! 😞 Andy
  18. That depends on the state of your split pins! Out of four recently on my RB44's ball joints, I had to drill three out as they were just solidified rust. The remaining one was fine as I'd replaced it previously - with a stainless one. 🙂 Andy
  19. I use stainless wire on all my vehicles, works a treat but needs a bit of practice! Andy
  20. Methinks that's an aircraft intercom plug, not a land vehicle one. Andy
  21. I'm not up on Larkspur but that looks like a Larkspur test set of some kind. Andy (M0IJH)
  22. Bearing in mind that it's based on ASCOD, a vehicle that entered service with the Spanish and Austrians in 2002, we've obviously managed to spend the better part of twenty years messing up an existing proven design. 😞 Andy
  23. The curse of FRES lives on? Andy
