  1. I'd have to disagree. Just helped to fit an OM606 and six speed box into a 461 SWB. It's got the big bore manual pump as converted by the G wagen expert up by Bristol Airport (not Axleburger) and the damn thing is clean as a whistle and too powerful. Wheelspin in 4th is simply not practical; so it's been backed off a bit. Damn thing tows a dream and with the six speed box it's perfect through the rev range

  2. A topic of a poster adapting his hardtop tub for overlanding led me to this write-up of the replacement windows I put in our 110. It's been over a year since I replaced the horrendous truck cab windows of our Td5 Hardtop 110 with gullwings. I liked the look of the original windows, but I finally had enough of the cheap and fragile plastic latches and sliding windows that took a fight every time we wanted to use them. A reason not to open them often prevailed... The Explore glazing windows are AFAIK the only truck cab-sized gullwing replacements. Regrettably they weren't available in

  4. That's exactly what happened minutes ago! Many thanks! You're gotta love Landy electrics, the true home of "spaghetti electric-trickery"... 😉 Now, I can get back to welding up the A pillars and bulkhead now the windscreen is out. 😏

  5. Nice to see one with the rear locker used off-road. The TFL guys just took delivery of their base-spec 110, with only the off-road options selected: Should be interesting what they do with it, they were talking about Moab, so should be fun to follow.

  10. Removed my rear wiper cover & found my rear motor has the same colour wires attached as your motor, then, my original wiring is connected as shown in this photo, The plain black next to the plain red in the 2 pin connector is not required, but I just left mine in place. If you join your wires as in photo it should work fine

  13. So no progress with the folder because I decided to see if I could form the vent panel flap recesses queue a lot of work today started by making the formers to mould the aluminium around ( Bowie 69 should have listened to you 2mm would have been easier ) Cut recesses out of 5" x 1/2" flat bar all I had available and made up these, wish that could happen as quick as I can write it. Next I prepared a bit of 3mm ( stupid boy ) aluminium Then clamped it all together and started to hammer form the first part of recess

  14. Fun fact - doing that almost certainly uses more fuel, especially in anything with an ECU. During engine braking the ECU knows it doesn't need to put any fuel in at all and shuts off the injectors, whereas to keep the engine idling in neutral requires fuel.

  15. I wish so much that i never gave mine away. It was in great condition but not worth much at that time. I had too many cars and wanted it to go to a good home. Gave it away To someone who needed a car on the condition he kept it running. First sign of a minor repair and the idiot scrapped it. I only found out afterwards or I would have taken it back.

  16. I used to know someone that basically did this. His car was stolen and recovered - this was early nineties and an old car, so it didn't have much security. He hit on the idea of taking the steering wheel off at night and taking it into the house. Except he got careless and didn't tighten it up properly, and one day the inevitable happened. He somehow avoided crashing and stopped messing with the wheel after that. Although the same guy also used to take vehicles out of gear when going downhill "to save fuel". He'd once let a heavily loaded transit minibus run away on an autobahn in Germany
