  1. At last weekends LR show we treated ourselves to a Wolf ambulance from Withams. I'm planning on having it delivered asap but can anybody help me with the process from there? I understand I need to: 1. Get it insured. Footman James have said no, Lancaster are going to call back tomorrow and Adrian Flux have quoted (sensible). Any others to try? 2. Book an MOT and drive it there 3. Hopefully bring it home MOT'd 4. DVLA paperwork...... Any ideas? What do I need to fill in? Can I register it as a camper (my plan is to convert) Is it viable to convert to 12v? If so i'll have a load of 24v pa

  2. I'm putting a 300tdi into an 1989 Defender 90 I've replaced the clutch slave cylinder and am having trouble bleeding the system, all the piping is clear. If I pump the clutch I was expecting fluid to go from the reservoir and come out of the hole beneath where I've removed the pipe but it doesn't. Does this mean that I need to replace the master cylinder too?

  6. Hi, thinking of getting me a 130 Ambulance. lots of questions... is it a class 4 MOT? Whats its GVW? Does the 24v cause issues. Can i get rid of it? Can I insure it at a normal place? anything thats a RPITA to carry on using one? I think getting it registered is pretty easy once I got the MOT. Similar to when we brought Matilda home after the trip. So other than the insurance and MOT are there any "living with one" issues. e.g. are the spares pretty much the same? I presume normal 130 springs and shocks and general consumables like hub bearings and stuff. Thanks Neill ps feeling like

  7. Anyone familiar with 101s will know of their front driveshaft design issue, commonly called the "101 Rumble" where the front driveshaft causes mild vibration and noise on the overrun above about 90kph. There are two ways this can be reduced - the first is rotating the front axle housing up 17.5 degrees which is a fairly big job and I am not wanting to go this route. The second way is to lower the engine/gearbox on the drivers side so reducing the steep angle of the front driveshaft. HOWEVER I am not sure what the recommended amount is for lowering the engine and gearbox. Does anywith 101 kn

  8. Hi all. New owner in Glasgow area. I recently purchased a tithonus 110 FFR and had a set of leisure batteries installed in rear battery box along with a 24v power inverter . Alternator was charging all ok at 27.2v. New alternator belt fitted yesterday and now 24v warning light has appeared on dashboard. Auto electrian says no charge from coming from 2nd alternator. Any ideas or what is a suitable alternative alternator to use. Picture is what I have I think it is possibly a mark 10 PRC5253. Can I use a truck or bus alternator and weld onto brackets etc? the batteries are two 12v 120 amp o

  9. To add the above, the 101 manual steering box is a bit of a weak point, the ball bearings can corrode or shear and the races pit until they fail and the column unwinds instead of steering, it happened to me! I t was years ago when spares were still obtainable easily. You can machine the column and put proper bearings in but it's a fair bit of work.
