    Our BRDM2 chemical recon vehicle

    yep, that’s it! It’s in remarkable shape. All those 40 year old seals and plastic and rubber are just failing now so I need to keep on the ball inregards to maintaining it. We are planning on hitting the road this winter.

    My OT-64

    it’s a gear change pedal. No harm in holding it for a second or two but agreat way to damage the transmission is to use it like a clutch pedal.

    Our BRDM2 chemical recon vehicle

    A rather disappointing day working on the BRDM. Hooked up the PKT solenoid and the firing circuit works. I changed the transmission oil. It was very low and nasty. Flushed it with 2 gallons of extra 90w I had then poured in 8ish liters of ep90. The PTO is the fill hole for the entire...

    BRDM 2 Purchasing & Engine Conversion

    that’s why you close the engine hatch. It’s fairly quiet when the hatch is closed. The engine hatches are on hinges that swing out for easy access. It’s no trouble to open them up.

    BRDM 2 Purchasing & Engine Conversion

    they’re super easy to get out. I use regular car batteries. Just need strong arms. You lift The engine deck and there they are, right by the master switch.

    BRDM 2 Purchasing & Engine Conversion

    No, they don't. What I am going to do is wire in a converter to charge my phone and run a fan that sucks air out. Isn't hard, you have 2 big batteries in the back right of the vehicle.

    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...
