    I'd bet on the Lego model being pretty accurate! They have produced models based on three of the Movies I've worked on (Star Wars VIII, Fantastic Beasts 2 & Spiderman). In each case, the model has been based on actual drawings. In the case of Fantastic Beasts, from Special Effects Drawings I suspect. You see the circle on the top of the roof? There's one on the underside of the chassis too. They didn't appear in the film - because they were the mountings to attach it to a slew-ring on a motion Platform. (I designed the motion platform). That says to me that Lego have good access to drawings - and that the Lego model is likely to be pretty close! That being the case - I quite like it! Si P.S. Almost every rig I've designed has had a Land Rover part in it - guess it's what I know best!

    The tangent being that if the Wilks brothers had designed a motorbike, it would have been very like a Rokon: underpowered, no suspension, slow, but 2x2, easily field repairable, and largely unstoppable. So, with my SIII getting a new expansion tank and a new bracket fabbed, I took the Rokon with us on a trip to Rifle, in Garfield County on Coloardo’s western slope. If the tangent is too much of a stretch for the Mods, my apologies. We’ve had a long, late Spring in Colorado and it will be snowing up on the Roan Plateau at 8,500 - 9,000 feet tonight. These pics were taken yesterday and it was sunny and dry but in the Fifties and Sixties. The Roan Plateau stretches out East - West from Rifle Gap about 10 miles west and ends in @3,500 ft cliffs overlooking rifle. The area is crisscrossed with deep gulches, tiny creeks and a few trails dating back to the 1950s when the area, designated the Naval Shale Oil Reserve, was explored. A few boreholes around and some high Summer pasture. But during my @ 35 mile trip yesterday, I didn’t see another soul up there and cattle haven’t yet been brought up from the valleys. Trails are some quite decent dirt roads where I could get the Rokon’s top speed of about 35 mph on, to bumpy twin-track (Greenlane without the green), to some rocky/shaley broken ground, especially in and out of creeks and gulches. Hope you enjoy pics

    Charge or more accurately the No charge light is the red battery light in top line of the warning light panel The choke is the butterfly valve symbol in lower line, looks like this [/] lights up Amber when glow plugs are in use Brown/yellow trace line is from alternator, Glow plug wiring is yellow/black trace line on it.

    The glow plug relay is timed off after a few seconds . The choke light is bottom row 2nd from the right . Is the engine loom connected to the main loom fully ? Do you have continuity from that point to the dash connector and again from the main loom connection to the alternator? If it starts ok that would suggest the ign. switch unit is connected correctly , have you checked continuity on the oil light circuit - (white/brown) ? cheers Steve b

    Probably to stop it being blocked buy sealant.

    There's a good troubleshooting video with the whole drivetrain on the bench on the Rokon YouTube channel. That's interesting, is that supposed to happen? Wasn't mentioned in the troubleshooting video. Pics are fantastic and I kinda want one!

    So the Britpart pipe outlasted two back boxes, shocking. It seems Britpart's poor quality control may not perfect. Perhaps, once in a while, a decent part may slip through.
