  1. Its a different vehicle, but I use the Bearmach own brand hubs on the D2 and they seem to last well... ~£80ish for the Bearmach one vs £400+ for LR genuine/Timken versions so I thought it worth a try - the one thats been on the longest must be on about 60k miles now.

  2. As my 90 approaches the end of its restoration I'm now finishing off a few bits I've been wanting for a while such as NAS style 3rd brake light and dashboard console. I know there are a lot of options already out there and I did a lot of research on here before starting on this project but I'm finally done with it. Not to everyone's taste but as a soft top I wanted to hear the radio and didn't have a whole lot of options for speaker placement. This one has two 6x9s mounted on the top - sound bouncing back off the windscreen! space for far too many switches and replaceable fascia panels fo

  3. Not that I'm picking on Ross but I wonder whether James can build a workshop and finish his 110 before Ross finishes his...

  5. On the pistons checking the width of the ring grooves is worthwhile . Are the skirts good and smooth - no significant scuffing ? Do all four pistons look like that on top ? It's had some debris through while running for sure . The mains can be checked by loosening all the caps just a little and then removing one at a time to check , most wear will occur on the shell in the cap , while the big-end will show more on the shell in the rod. With care you can slide the upper crank shell around to check as well . For the price of parts I'd re-shell it completely as you have it ready to do

  6. Another productive day. Making the rafters is slow work - partly because I’m figuring it out as I go but also because things aren’t quite straight so there’s a bit of jiggery-pokery to do for each pair. Just a shame it only gets light at 9:00am and is dark by 4:30pm or I’d have got them all done I’m pleased with how it’s looking though. It’s 2,500mm to the underside of the ties - so plenty of room for Land Rovers even once the lighting is fitted.

  7. I have now checked the waist gate. I basically did like in this video: https://youtu.be/fS3ZfUsXOs8 After removing the actuator I could easily move the lever, but it didn’t move back by itself. I drowned it in WD40 and worked it until it did and reassembled everything again. I just had a 40 km test drive on the highway and testing some of the up hill junctions where it usually is coughing , and so far it fells like there surely is an improvement. No more coughing and it did 130 km/h like it’s supposed to do. So thanks a lot for the tip Paime!!!

  8. I have had a 1/2 Sealey set for 20 odd years...…….. Metal case mind. I have lost a couple along the way, but none have broken, and they get used as formers, levering pivots and press tools as well.

  9. I remember about £15 years ago a Hardy Spicer prop UJ cost about £15 while a LR Gen Parts identical part cost £45. That’s not mark up; it’s stitch up! I also remember Tata saying just after buying JLR that they would only support older vehicles to the EU statutory minimum time of 10 years, and that no parts for vehicles over that age would be sold. I think they have a real nerve behaving like that and then bragging about how many of the early vehicles are still in use.
