Chieftain engine bay shots

#1
I am looking for some good clear shots of the engine bay with all 3 major components fitted and any with any of them or all removed. A good chance to browse through your photis boxes. If you have any and would be prepared to share could you please bang across on email.

Many thanks in anticipation :D :D

Why pray tell? I still have nightmares about the Bank of Three, the Rootes Blower, its cyclonic element and the least said about the Centrifugal filter the better!

Ask this question on www.hmvf.co.uk : I am there is someone there who keeps a Chieftain. If not (wrong again), somebody will put you in touch with a military vehicle nut who DOES have a Chieftain, and better, the engine bay will be clean and sparkling. I keep telling them that clean and sparkling is just WRONG with military vehicles, but do they listen?

Contact, sorry, get in touch with Helston Gunsmiths. They've got a couple of wagons outside their front doors in proper, true-to-life, decks-in-the-air gash order. I'm sure they'll happily send you some snaps.

Trying to help a guy who is recreating Chieftain and all internals at 1/35 scale. I never bothered taking any of thta sort of shot hence the request.

Never found them very helpful, when i was doing the Chieftain book they did not want to know or help. Those 3 must have been thre for a long time now.

Was over there a few weeks back, and they're looking shocking. I guess the novelty value has worn off.

Have you tried the Osprey Publishing book 'Chieftain Main Battle Tank'. I have a copy somewhere and I'm sure there are some engine bay pics in there.
