  1. Hi, I'm searching for good PDFs or original manuals and handbooks for the HMLC Stalwart, to share on the Facebook group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/Alvis.HMLC.6.x.6.Stalwart/ I'm happy to scan any original manual to convert it to PDF, and post them back to anyone kind enough to post originals. I've been working on this for two years now. I have compiled and MOD have declassified quite a few files now. If you have originals of anything marked as red or orange in the list, then I would really appreciate your loaning them to me
  2. Looking for a Stalwart, Mk2 preferred, must be road registered and have swim kit, although I don't mind work. South of England preferred.
  3. In their 3rd year, getting bigger and better each year. An expanded arena with a pit to drive in and hopefully out of! Chinook helicopter arrival - at 2:28 (I get to experience the rotor wash) - The helicopter landed mid morning Saturday and stayed until late afternoon allowing people to inspect it up close and go inside. Chinook takeoff Chinook helicopter flyby on it's way home Stalwart climbing out of arena pit T54 car crush - a Volvo this time
  4. Hello all, Steve asked me to step up and say something. I figured if a picture is worth 1000 words I'd create an album and get started with 13,000. The pictures are mostly self explanatory. All vehicles are currently owned. http://hmvf.co.uk/forumvb/album.php?albumid=274 The 5 ton is a 72' AM General M813A1 retired from Iraq. It has the Cummings NHC 250 (855 cu inch). I have added a turbo, winch and supersingle 14:00x20's. The 69' V-100 (aka M706) was returned from Vietnam. It was last used as a movie prop for 92' film Freejack. It is street legal (the engine and transmission are currently out) , 65mph, and amphibious. I plan to restore it to 69' trim. The Stalwart is a 71' REME Fitters FV624. Serial STAL-II-876 The Deuce and half is a 71' AM General M35A2. I have added power steering, the turbo, stack muffler, pyrometer, coolant filter... The 28 cylinder R4360-63A is out of an Air Force C124 Gloabmaster II. Built in mid to late 50's it is rated at 3800hp at 2700 rpm (~7400lb*ft torque). Fuel consumption at rated power is about 400 gallons/hour. The plan is for dynamic display. Jim
  5. Stalwarts x4 at War & Peace Revival 2013 The FV 620 Alvis Stalwart, informally known by servicemen as the 'Stolly', is a highly mobile amphibious military truck " width="644" height="390">">Something went wrong... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YukFisE0S4
  6. I am soon going to be changing the starter motor on my Alvis Stalwart (STAL54). While I am at it, I would like to know more about the wiring system: for example, the braided cable that runs from the ignition junction box to the starter motor. I'd like to find out what sort of cables and connectors were used, and I'd appreciate advice on how best to go about sympathetically rejuvenating the wiring, cleaning the connector contacts, and possibly sourcing replacements. I'd like the wiring to be safe and reliable, but as "authentic" as possible too. DJW
  7. Hello, I currently reside in the Seattle area of Washington state, USA. I have no military service, and no ownership of any military vehicles...yet. But I have a great interest in them, and a healthy amount of general auto mechanics experience. My co-workers and I recently discovered several Alvis Stalwarts for sale in the area, and at a reasonable price - this sparked my interest! I found the HMVF while researching the Stolly, and discovered the wealth of MV knowledge you all have to offer. Hopefully one day I may contribute to the collection, especially if we end up with one (or several) of the Stalwarts :-D ~Chad
  8. The attached diagram shows part of the ignition circuit on the Alvis Stalwart; it's the bit inside the big circle that puzzles me. Is this old notation for a relay? If so, what is the switching characteristic? Rgds, DJW
  9. Hi, does anyone know the part nos for a Stalwart Clutch plate, I have come across some plates in the shed and I am trying to identify them, they are supposed to be for a Rolls B80/B81 and they are a 12" plate, but the centre boss seems too large to be Martian.
  10. Hi I am trying to find out where and when this picture was taken. I'm actually trying to track down the owner of the small armoured car to the left... so any leads would be appreciated! The reg of the Stalwart is; q31 gjt Heres a second picture taken a few years later... I have a feeling the show is a large steam fair - perhaps in the south?? Thanks Baz
