  1. I know its a long shot, don't suppose anyone knows what happened to the Militant cab after the filming was over?
  2. no, its a 6x6, I'm sure I can see a diff through the junk
  3. looks nice, did you get chassis number? Looks like a 4x4?
  4. I should probably adjust mine that way, ok on a good run, but pottering the batteries don't seem to get enough of a charge. I'll add it to the list of all the other things I won't get around too
  5. yes, almost invisible to the camera, didn't get out of 2nd gear
  6. You Tube video of the parade, gets interesting about 3.23, you can't hear the Militant for the Sexton in front If the link doesn't work, search Worcester Parade on You Tube
  7.

  8. lovely pictures, thought only mine got stuck on grass
  9. Nick, can't you get Steve to lean on the front, that should lower it enough
  10. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Aec-militant-recovery-truck-/271026645466?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item3f1a7269da looks like another one is going suffer the fate of clean scrap x 10 ton. Thought the saga of this one was over for a bit, but looks like it might become the militant version of that bloody ferret that's always up for sale
  11. and just to add to that, yes there is the facility to counter-rotate the wheels on the same axle, but what many overlook is the fact that both axles are connected and militants don't have diff locks, so unless you have a double rolling road or remove the prop etc, all that will happen is that the militant will try to drive itself out of the rollers Glad you got Vosa to amend the regs for the militant, with a bit of luck that info will now be on file, and others in the same boat should be able to get future testers to refer to it, if the problem arises again.
  12. glad to hear you got it through an MOT again Jules! What did they do for a brake test?
  13. Was this another that was for sale a while ago on Ebay? Looks nice and tidy
