    BRDM 2 Purchasing & Engine Conversion

    That's a vent for a fan that's under the dash on the left. I've never thought about adding AC, maybe a big fan on the inside to keep temps down but no matter what it'll be hotter than two squirrels in a wool sock in june. It's made to be sealed up nice and tight and absorbs a lot of heat...

    Need Advice for BRDM-2 Importation

    Proper gear oil for Russian AFV?

    Flushing and replacing the transmission, transfer case, and some of the other things that require oil. What is a safe oil to use? I have ep90 hypoid gear oil in the axles. I know it’s an older vehicle so perhaps 80/90 but gl-4? Brdm-2 Thanks.
