  1. I think, as I have such a box, that you will find that the centre of the hinge pin is drilled and tapped to take a bolt. The bolt goes through the drilled hole on the hole in the protrusion on the box. As Chris says with the box fitted the roof can't be opened. Diana
  2. Get yourself a device from https://hauppauge.com/pages/products/prods.htm
  3. As the Header says wanted CVRT Gearbox. Please PM me. Diana
  4. Just replaced the Hankook batteries in my CVRT with Bosch The big difference is weight, The Bosch batteries are considerably heavier and I hope will last longer. Not one bit impressed with the Hankook batteries. For a price better than anywhere on the net delivered try dorsetautospares - onlinesales@dorsetautospares.com Diana
  5. Electrotherm will not deal with members of the public. - I tried for spares. If the MOD are paying over a £1000 for these they are soft in the head, and wasting public money They are well made and tough, but there's nothing special inside them. The thing that's likely to go pop is the thermal cut out. Diana BTW CAPITALS = SHOUTING, so I don't shout 🙂
  6. Umm.. A local firm laser cut me some aluminium shims for the exhaust - the exhaust melted them 🙂 melting point of Ali is 630 degrees C. Diana
  7. Shock absorbers that didn't need changing which were "faulty", steering that was showing signs of wear, which I couldn't find that passed on the following years test - explain that one? If there's not an issue when a garage says there is that's plain and simple falsification - report them. Most often people who have no idea get taken in and payout for repairs that don't exist or were not needed. Youtube is littered with examples, the bad reputation in general of garages continues.

  8. One piece of fuel tank hose, steel reinforced. Suitable for diesel or petrol. You will need a disc cutter to cut the reinforcing wire. £25 Plus postage Please send me a private message if interested.
  9. As Chris states the rear set of batteries (if fitted) feed the RJB (Radio Junction Box) which is to the left of the commanders cupola, there will still be power to the RJB even with no batteries but the engine has to be running.. From the RJB 2 core power cables are run individually to the radio sets , and either an IB2 or IB3. The 2 core cable is terminated in a 2 pin female connector at each radio set and IB3/2 From the IB2 or IB3 a 12 core cable ring is run around the vehicle feeding into and out of the different Clansman boxes returning to the IB3 or 2. As stated elsewhere n
  10. Some info came my way about a batch of CVRT wheels that the MOD bought. The only way to put rubber on a CVRT wheel, or other armoured tracked vehicle wheels is vulcanising. It would seem some bright spark decided they would press the tyres on the wheel of a batch the MOD bought from them, not long after these tyres started dropping off. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if some of these wheels were appearing here and there. Diana
  11. The speed limiter has a fuse, on Belgian CVRT the fuse holder is separate to and close by the ignition coil. On British CVRT it's usually cunningly under one of the cable inlets to the ignition coil. Unscrew the cable inlet cover and pull the fuse thus disabling the limiter, which often these days can be faulty. Diana
  12. Stubbys spanners and easy peasy with the engine cover lifted.
