  1. Iain, will listen out for you, will be mobile 06/05/17 Richard M6FSC
  2. Thanks guys, I had forgotten how full the engine bay is when it is all back together...roll on that day.
  3. Terry, If you can do a photo that would be great, I don't have a vacuum tank so guess it was all taken out and blanked off on the manifold. Onwards and upwards at least ever bit that goes back on gives me more space in the shed!
  4. Guys does anybody know where the vacuum takeoff is on the engine to run the wiper motor? Just put the engine back in so good Access!!!!
  5. Well done guys, I am afraid my restoration is mechanical and only the paint work that needs it! I do wish I had one of those cameras that fit on the head as putting things back together after a couple of years off is taxing my memory of where things come from! The detail I want always is just off image or behind something. Interesting to see your hydraulic pump as mine has extra mounts to the side wall. Also the air intake to the air pump is just a short bit of pipe... no filter.
  6. Andy, I have just fitted a 24 to 12 volt unit in 04CC12. I bolted the unit under the bottom of the single ammo box holder on the LH side. 24volt feed is from the junction box via 2 pin connector and the output is a motorcycle waterproof cigarette socket mounted below the hole in the ammo box holder. You have to take the ammo box out to plug something it but it is hidden! Rich C
  7. Hi, My Ferret hatches were all rusted solid, but by repeating a heating up with gas torch then quickly soaking with WD40/3in1 so it is drawn in on cooling, eventually things freed up. Good Luck.
  8. Is there a paint supplier who can consistently supply the correct colour? I have brought 5 tins at various times and only the first one from Marcus was spot on with the original British Standard 1960's colour patches. If I knew then what I know now I would have recorded the batch number.
  9. Has anybody tried Activ8 Oil Additive in Austin Champ Axle, Ferret wheel hubs and B series Engines?
  10. Apart from the linkages on the spline shafts for gear select and GCP, are the gearboxes the same?
  11. Thanks All Engine is now out and about to take gearbox out, looking at slinging a chain across inside as the old side visor hinges are big enough for a shackle to fit in (MK6/7). then lift from the chain to get a plank under the gearbox and transfer box. That is the plan! Rich C
  12. Thanks both, I have been working with av/BAOR/61/3 which is to remove both together is a little short of information. Looks like the 2 big nuts/bolt heads to the back of the collars. I have taken photos but have yet to work out how to attach to messages. Also have checked the pressure reliefs on front bevel boxes while engine out. Rich
  13. Can the gearbox be separated from the transfer box with the latter left in the vehicle? If yes how do you get to the nuts at the bottom of the gearbox? I have the engine out now! Thanks Rich
  14. Reg, Is there a trick to get the oil pipe engine to oil tank off? I am trying to get the oil tanks out ready for engine out, would like to undo at the engine rather where the pipe goes into the tank. Is there a special tool? Thanks richard
