  1. All this grumbling and no-one's appreciating the fact that LR are clearly testing the thing off-road. If they didn't care, as many here are claiming, they wouldn't be spending millions of pounds in R&D dragging it over rocks in Moab etc. (How many other manufacturers bother? Do we believe a BMW X5 prototype has ever been rock-crawling?) For all the grumbling, LR take off-road ability more seriously than most others - the fact they even do it with the likes of the Evoque deserves a bit of credit, especially if you hold it up against its competition.

  2. If you have a USAF contact you might negotiate a replacement engine arriving in the boot of a transport plane with somewhat discounted postage...

  4. I almost always run with coolant on slow, mainly as I don't want covering in it. Especially useful with stainless. My lathe has a Warco coolant kit on it and works fine, you get the tank, pump, single flexible nozzle and pipework but is a bit spendy. My mill has a submersible pump in an old drum of coolant, it runs 6 jets and cools the bearings no problem. Certainly a cheaper way of doing it if you can pick a pump up second hand.

  5. Me too, but it's a weeee bit spendy compared to the other flavours! My lathe came with a Dickson type one (RDG Tools have them) and I wouldn't be without it. RDG tools are pretty good value for reasonable quality gear - not ABOM / This Old Tony quality but equally not awful Chinese tat. Likewise Chronos. I've never bothered faffing with the (dead) coolant pump, not sure how necessary they are?

  6. Ok - gotta come clean as I found out something yesterday. But first this was the engine running on carbs with EDIS on default two years ago - starts easy and ran well. Then as you can see it was still on carbs and the EDIS wiring was just linked together with twisted wiring and electrician tape for insulation - but it ran and actually with fixed ignition ran very well even under load. Since then the carb manifold has come off and a Thor manifold on in anticipation of MS3. The Edis wiring was hard wired in and last week I tried to start the engine without MS3 on starter fl

  7. I've never been under a D5. Anybody got access to one to check it out? The problem with those independent suspension arms is that the sort of clout on a rock which is easily done, and shrugged off by an axle, will result in either a 4 figure suspension realignment job or a new set of tyres every 5000 miles. I've seen it on the D3s. I too am starting to wonder if it is all just a stunt to keep people guessing. I said for years that I didn't believe that it existed at all. Maybe it's actually something else? I look at this one and the way the wheels sit in the arches is either a comple

  9. Yes trying to keep it the same height, that why i will probably reset the camber. I did them in the past myself, but its a lot of work. This time i have a spare set of leaves which i will reset after i install the winch and see where it sits, and how it rides. Cause if it hits the bumps all the time it might be too soft and i will than probably add a leaf. No paras for me in front, i had them, broke them, and hated them, so its standard springs up front.
