    nas rear step with detachable tow hitch

    As far as I know you won’t get a Dixon bate style detachable/drop plate style NAS step. You can get a step with the 2” receiver style box which will allow you to swap attachments. I did read somewhere recently that defenderupgrades are selling fully UK towing certified NAS steps so may be worth dropping them an email.

    As above, make sure the pointer is in the right place first,or you are shooting in the dark. Easiest way to do this is with a piston stop, it has been covered on here, do a search. Then, most V8s will tolerate 9 deg btdc on modern fuel.

    Lidl smart battery charger

    I gotthe similar looking one from Aldi last week, £12.99 Very impressed so far - has a setting for AGM batteries and it managed to fully revive a completely nailed battery I had in the scrap pile.

    Not sure how you do it on a v8, but why not check TDC and put the plate right/ confirm first?

    Defender wheel tracking

    He's doing this. The string is 15mm off of the front of the rear left wheel.

  8. I am looking for NAS style rear step for a defender 90 with detachable tow hitch, anybody seen this around or know if this is available anywhere?

    Defender wheel tracking

    I agree with the above. it sounds like your are checking if the string touches both sides of the tyre evenly with the string straight - and have a rear wheel (albeit measured from the tyre) that doesn’t seem to sit square to the others... I’d measure the distances between inside of the wheel rims as close to inline with the axle centres as you can. It could all be dodgy tyres.

    Off Roading In Portugal

    There are ways... most people do bolt-on mods, and swap them out once a year for the inspection. Or the highly illegal way of having two vehicles with the same VIN (not recommended), one of which goes to inspection and sits in a barn for the rest of the year. Or skip inspection altogether. The guys in the UK are damn lucky.

    wheel/tyre/offset help!?

    This is quite a useful comparison tool: https://tiresize.com/wheel-offset-calculator/

    Range rover classic side mirrors

    Hey guys thank you for your replies. I looked it out and turns out that 2 wires out of the switch plug were switched between each other because somehow they were all cut an rewired. Sometimes **** like this just happens.

    Dynamic timing

    Pointer is the rotor arm? I have used a strobe to see the degrees and it was far away before TDC. I want to adjust it to the correct degrees depending on the engine that i have 36D. It was running perfectly but i have removed the distributor without marking it. I know it was wrong but let us consider that I’ve checked it and had to adjust it. I’ve searched and found many answers some say 4 degrees BTDC others 6-8. When i change the degrees the idle rom changes and i read that it should be between 500-550rpm. Mine is around 650-700. I can also change the rpm from the air intake. so I’m pretty lost. Just want to do it right for maximum power and best fuel consumption. Also I suspect that the reference plate of the TDC is tilted a litte to the left side. Thank you

    HP22 auto gear box loom

    Did the classic have a speed transducer ? My auto has reversing light and ignition inhibitor on a plug on the side of the gearbox and that’s it. Diff lock is off the Transfer case.

    Defender wheel tracking

    Better to measure to the rim (assuming it’s the same as the front). Different tyres, pressure, condition (as mentioned) and load may cause the sidewall to flex differently from the front.

    wheel/tyre/offset help!?

    Standard boosts are et35 if memory serves, going to an et8 will give you 27mm of movement towards the outer arch. My boosts on 265/75 have a 30mm spacer giving the equivalent of an et5 (the spacer effectively moves the mounting face to almost the centre of the wheel) ET0 and ET10 are quite common offsets in aftermarket modulars/alloys.

    Td5 looms into a earlier pre 1991 vehicle

    Ynn000332 lists as a td5 130 loom so probably won’t have rear tailgate wiring. The black oval plug with the purple/white wires is for the fuel pump and sender unit. A plug-n-play 7-pin towbar loom is about £40

    Dynamic timing

    How are you running the engine? First steps would be to confirm the pointer is in the right place, they often aren't.

    Dynamic timing

    Hello i just saw that the engine on an 1993 rrc that the engine is 36D with different ratio than the previous one. I just don’t know the dynamic timing degrees to set it to. Does any one have an idea on how many degrees should it be. The engine is a 3.9. Any test that I should do to know the optimum degrees? Thank you

    Flip up screen stereo/cd

    I fitted 4 pioneer g-1010 [IIRC] speakers years ago, sound is good, 2 speaker in factory dash space & 2 in rear headliner, it blast out my Sky cd's with no problem, not overly keen on the raptor centre panel,but may have a look.
