  1. I'm champing at the bit, after doing some major overhaul work and petrol being as low here as £1.02 a litre, I can't even go for a test drive. I anticipate a minimum of a 3 month lock down if people play by the rules, but they aren't so that is going to make it longer. 😞
  2. An electric tank is the way ahead for the future 😂😂😂😂, electric tractors ploughing fields and electric combine harvesters 😂😂
  3. The petrol pump filter is easily available on Ebay. I fitted an extra CAV/Delphi filter in the fuel line as contaminant was passing through the other 2 filters - works a treat. Diana
  4. Needs a de-rust and paint ! 😎 You did ask !
  5. Genuine NOS, unused, black oil can, as provided to Ferret and other vehicles as part of their CES. NSN 4930 99 801 2613 Dated 1973 Picture to follow later. This is a rare item! Can with removable filler funnel £40 + postage. Please PM me if interested. Diana
  6. Fitting radios and a complete intercom system in a CVRT it's is a piece of cake 🙂 I've fitted 3 radios to mine , one of which was a Racal VRM 5080 (knocks the spots of a VRC 353)
  7. I'm sure there are people buying these vehicles and realising very quickly they are out of their depth, as well as chancers trying it on to gullible people. I bought a Spartan little realising what problems I was taking on, luckily I am more than capable of sorting it out. There's a Shielder on ebay for £22k - honestly, a vehicle with a spares problem to start with including track that's hard to obtain. A 432 which has an asking price of more than a CVRT, is heavier, more difficult to work on - where's the sense in that? Diana
  8. 8 as new off Lucas Lamp Bases as fitted to Landrovers with a metal based glass lens. These are the light rings holding the lens of the side/indicator/stop &tail lenses fitted to LANDROVER with the metal screw in lens. They will not fit the glass lens found on Ferret and CVRT or some other vehicles. £50 plus postage for the 8 Please send me a private message - NOTE these do NOT fit the all glass lenses fitted to Ferret/CVRT and some other vehicles. Diana
  9. 10w30 for everything that needs oil. some people do use 15W40 in the engine.- all oil sshoul be mineral oil. The cheapest way is a 20 litre drum of ebay for about £45. Do not use semi synthetic or synthetic, especially in the gearbox. Diana

  11. There is only one place to get info on CVRT that is worth trying - Green Machine surplus. This is what you want ...https://www.greenmachinesurplus.com/cvrt-scorpion-electrical-system-cvrt-165-p.asp But you will have to extract from it specifics regarding the Spartan. Diana
  12. Yes Robin - that's the one! but not at their stupid price (before it was sold). Diana
  13. Wanted drawbar/pintle/ rear towbar as fitted to CVRT rear to tow bar minelayer etc... PM please with price Diana
  14. Hi Chris, That slotted nut spanner is for the final drive nut. Diana
  15. Hi Richard, Made by a company called Garlock - still in existence. Not a big fan of steel lipped seals nor finger springs. Diana
  16. The clutch seal fitted to the box was Viton, the seal inside the clutch was nitrile with finger spring! - yet more lazy bodging 🙂 the outer track of the clutch roller bearing was rotating in it's housing too - in all a nightmare job!
  17. Hi Richard, I had a 1 metre 3/4" breaker bar standing on it and the lock ring would not move, even with a 1500Nm impact wrench it took 5 minutes to get the lock ring (on both sides) to move, I suspect depending on who overhauled the gearbox,( this was Belgian) you may or may not get a problem. You can also notice bodge marks on the large lock ring - not caused by me, clearly they had tried to get it off by bodging. You may notice that not even the oil seals were properly fitted, a bearing dust cap was fitted on both sides, one had come loose, had a steel backing and damaged the

  20. The integrity of the bulkhead (drivers wall) is essential for your safety. It's a firewall to stop fire, fumes and fuel getting to the driver and occupants and killing them. Both the throttle idle screw and mixture screws can be reached without removing the decking or drivers wall. It requires a little dexterity and knowledge of where the adjustments are located.
  21. Oh and the dial illumination is via a 6.3 volt bulb... 😁
  22. The Avo is a piece of C**P wanders like it's drunk and has a miniature EC70 or 71 tube..as it's oscillator output tube. The output attenuator is likely to have spot burns across it's range.
  23. Pair of CVRT steering calipers for sale, Pistons and bores look good, new seals needed - note these are MINERAL OIL SEALS not DOT4/5 seals for a CVRT Both Calipers are offside (Right) £60 each plus carriage. - and they are heavy Private Message me if interested. Diana
  24. One pair of Viton/FKM toroid rings or O rings for the hub face oil seal of a CVRT final drive. One O ring per side. PLEASE NOTE, these do not fit nor are required for a Scotseal oil seal. £10 plus carriage. Diana
