  1. Hi, I was going to start this thread later but another thread I started on this vehicle's radio setup: http://hmvf.co.uk/forumvb/showthread.php?52339-Unusual-Land-Rover-radio-setup raised lots of questions veering ever so slightly off-topic, so I thought I'd strike whilst the iron is hot. I won the vehicle on an Ebay auction a couple of months ago, didn't pay a lot for it, and it was not sold as SAS. However it does have a lot of curious features: Winch bumper (believe Superwinch X6 is 12V). The winch is low profile and does not obstruct the radiator, important as the V8 e
  2. Hi everybody I am writing from Corsica, France, where I am starting the renovation of my Rover 8 swb ffr, 1964, vin 98 EL 86 first step for me is to try to rescue the history of the vehicle. I know from the B historical data card that it was first send to Germany to the 14/20th king's hussars. It was originally dark bronze green but ended sandy desert as the regiment went to Libya and Cyprus. But I don't know for sure which campaign it was assigned to. does anybody know how to get evidence of a vehicle behind sent to a particular battlefield? I thank you all in advance and
  3. Dear All I have for sale a set of top and bottom clamps for the RACAL 8 and 11m light duty (3 inch base tube) masts. This set are in fairly good cosmetic condition and are complete except for the small (and easily fabricated) block that holds the upper clamp to a flat surface. As I have a defender rather than series landrover these aren't what I need and are therefore offered for sale. I have seen one (that didn't sell) on E-Bay at £250 BiN recently - as I recall I paid around £50 and will be happy to get that back plus postage. I think they will cost around £15 to send by Parcelforce to
  4. Hello All Does any one know if there is a maintenance manual for this type of generator, my FFR Landrover is sounding like it is in pain as the generator could do with some grease on its bearings, but can't see anything that allows that to happen Any help, greatfully received Steve
  5. As above, rebuilding my brothers FFR 90 which served in Gulf War 1. Its going sand but would like to know what they actually looked like in service (markings, equipment etc). Can find bugger all on google, plenty 110s and leafers but not so much 90s, any pictures and advice would be greatly appreciated, Thanks, Sam
  6. Hi, My Land Rover 90 has the following radio parts fitted: TUAAM box + transformer (VHF) on wing, second antenna (HF) on side mount (not usual mast), 14V radio charger, distribution box(? - on right of top pic), telescopic mast mounted horizontally above tailgate, couple of cable boxes & a jerry can holder between the front seats, seat in back tub on driver's side. A yellow sheathed cable runs from the battery to what I think is the distribution box, another from there to the charger and from there to between the front seats (cable tie wrapped). The Land Rover is a 90 fro
  7. Hi I recently bought a penthouse lamp for my 1977 24v Lightweight FFR. Does anyone know how I can power this from within the car? I've attached an pic of the 3 pin power socket, one on either side thanks mike
  8. Hi, I recently bought a wing box/arial for my 1977 FFR 24V essentially for cosmetic purposes, but it also came with a TUAAM unit which I think works. However, I'm at a loss as to which cables I should buy to power it up. I've attached a couple pictures including one of the 7 pin socket which I assume is the power socket. Also, if I got it working, could I connect a CB to it? thanks mike
  9. Hello Folks, Not wanting to run before I can walk (or even crawl!), and bearing in mind that I haven't even taken delivery of my new toy yet, I still can't resist asking about a winch for the front of it... So, it's a 1991 hard top FFR RB44, and as such does not come as standard with the winch-bumper that is fitted to many of the GS models. Not wanting to sound sacrilegious, but having used front-winch-mounted vehicles all my life, I really fancy a winch on the front of my new RB. Am I completely out of order :angel:? Or is it within the bounds of acceptability and, if so, whe
  10. I've been having some issues with charging on my 1983 24v landrover 109. I've been reading up on this thanks to Clives Elliott's 'All Charged Up' series of articles, but I thought I'd ask for a bit of help/feedback. Here's the situation. We're dealing with a Generator No 10. Mk3 and a Generator Panel No.9 Mk.4 (90 amp). The system looks to be in fairly original condition with no modificatons. There is no radio equipment, only the 2 vehicle batteries. A couple of weeks ago the charge warning light started to flicker into life and before long, was permanently beaming brightly at me. I ca
