  1. Well an update - and progress! The garage buzzed out everything from the diagnostics socket and discovered a break in the VAN bus (not the CAN bus) wire, which no-one had realised was being used by the ECU. So, hopefully with that bridged out with a fresh wire they can at last crack on with the diagnostics.

  2. I like just park, I didn't know they did this as I only use it for my work car and not registered for my 110. I think it would be useful if their emails said "Hi Phil, something has fallen off your Land Rover 110. You may wish to have a look underneath"

  7. I know this has been covered many times before but this is getting annoying now! This is a mates truck that we have been working through trying to find the cause of the problem. The truck- 2012 110 Puma with only 25k miles. It has standard suspension but has wheel spacers and 18 inch Kahn wheels with BFG AT2 Tyres. These modifications were made prior to purchase and all was well for a good few months. No changes were made prior to the problem occurring which is a hard vibration/wobble side to side on the steering at 50-60mph which occurs most times but not all times on the way up to 70mph

  8. Sometime over the summer I registered with JustPark at a car park, in order to pay the parking fee. This morning I received this email. The contents are correct, my MOT is due but I wonder why the information was exchanged / why they were required to validate my registration. I might be turning into a grumpy old man. Perhaps this isn't a big deal... Hi Tim, When you added vehicle registration provided to your JustPark account, we were required to v

  9. Hi evereyone, We just got back from 2400km round trip to the Kalahari desert, where we spent a week on a private game reserve of approximately 1400 sq km. Here's a teaser, will put up some wildlife photos and videos once I've sorted through the thousands of photos we took. Pics taken along the N14, one of the straightest, most desolate roads in ZA

  11. I had an appointment today at the Dentist ( don't worry yourselves, i'm fine ) On friday i got a phonecall from the dentist, who is a small 2 person dentist* and staff operation, checking with me about covid etc and what would happen today. On saturday i received a text from the dentist asking me reminding me of my appointment and could i fill in my forms online please. What forms? I've been with them for years.. Clicked on the link and it took me to the ukdentalhub. What's the uk dental hub then? ****ed if i know, but the site wanted all my details, name, addres

  12. Good advice I'm not too worried on them not resolving it as while I won't name names as don't think thats on, they are reputable bunch who I've been a customer of for years. They have said they are happy to have a look at it. Just a royal pain as I work / look after kids and I no longer have a second car so finding time to do it and be without a car etc. This will be third time its out as the main seal I put in failed to had to do it again with an HS2.8 seal (should have done thatto start with lol) I'm down gearbox and clutch off in 4.5 hours on my back now so becoming a pro ha

  13. Every keystroke, every email, every phone call, every text you ever made is recorded somewhere, and will be used somehow. No matter what you consent to, and whatever rules may be breached. You may even be viewed with the camera in your laptop. Your TV and Alexa could be listening in .............. Get used to it guys, it is only going to get worse.

  18. It's fine, this is usual. Red90 is a very clever bloke, often right. But he lacks a certain subtly when dealing with human kind. I believe it's because he is an 'Engineer'. At work we don't let 'Engineers' out alone, nor do we leave them with the crayons or wipe board markers; and they are just civil engineers, the highest up the evolutionary development scale...

  19. Definitely remove the spacers to eliminate them from the running. Most alloys seem to require hub-centric spacers so it’s possible that’s a contributory factor at least. Beyond that I would be looking at the pre-loads.

  24. A fair few people have been to land of heather and superb scenery this year, we were amongst those lucky to get away for 3 weeks We arrived and stayed alongside Loch Ness for a week, walking, kayaking and driving about and i did a little video of the area We found fire/gravel roads which went a little off road using an app called Maps.me. These roads were gated with latches and high deer gates, cattel grids. It was nice to get off the tarmac roads for peace and quiet but i did get us into a bit of bother with a steep section ( sorry no photos or video of that! ).

  29. Leave the rod length standard and use a manual boost controller to adjust your boost pressure. Much easier to get at and simple to fit. Shortening the rod is so last year. Mo

  30. As mentioned before, you need to ask yourself what you really need. On 7.50 tyres, the rear axle is as bombproof as it gets (I assume a salibury axle). The front, you might want to consider HD shafts and CV's and a 4 pin diff so nothing breaks. Certainly, if you consider diffs, the Detroit setup will alter handling, as will any limited slip diff, so selectable would be better with your uses. Winches, well if you like travel light, than don't bother, as you carry something wherever you go, and might need it only once. I have seen this though, and would be very keen on this in your sit

  31. Thats how I would do it. You can increase fuelling to match the increased boost. I found that adjusting the fuelling led to an increase in boost so its just a case of small tweaks until you get to where you want. My advice is to do a little more reading before fiddling - see the PDF I posted in this thread. (adjusting the boost pin in the pump and the boost via the wastegate will probably be sufficient. I found very little gain messing with the starwheel. The 'max fuel screw' on the back of the pump just needs small adjustments but I would leave it alone unless you have done

  33. All good advice above. I have ARB air lockers ( easy to install at home and the compressor blows tyres up ) in my lightweight I fitted them because I was doing modified trials and that usually means a welded diff and fiddles but we are talking silly terrain to negotiate, you certainly won't be doing this overlanding. In my experience some people who have them tend to engage them full time on off road sites and far too often at other times to the point they forget how to drive without them as there is less skill involved negotiating obstacles. Also I have been stuck in mud engaged lockers and s

  35. The 8.8 stamped on the head suggests metric. Mine were 13mm heads, which is the ‘standard’ size for an M8 fixing. I also used a 1/2” spanner as it was a tighter fit on the slightly corroded heads.

  36. A few weeks back I attended a Land Rover Experience at Eastnor Castle. While I've been around Land Rovers all my life, this was actually my first foray to one of their "Experience" centres. I opted for Eastnor, as it is a lovely place and I've trialled there in the past. I also thought it'd make a good day out. Eastnor Castle is about 2 hrs away from me, all cross country and a lovely drive. My brother was accompanying me and we decided to go in my new Suzuki Jimny. Which incidentally was great to drive there and back. On arrival the Jimny seemed to spark some interest at the gate. A

  38. That doesn't make a bucket load of sense. It's the engine doing the emitting, not the suspension, difflocks or traction control! I don't think I could own a new vehicle these days. All this big brother knows best complexity just ____es me off. A lot!

  39. You can't really select 4th with the ZF in the D2, you can only allow the ECU to shift up to 4th if it thinks that is the correct gear. Are you sure you're not in 4th? Revs too high could also mean the lock-up isn't engaging. Best test would be to take the car up to speed, let it shift through the gears in D and when it should be in 4th move the lever to 3rd and watch the revs. You should first see a notable increase in revs and then a small drop, as the lock-up engages in 3rd. Once you can confirm the problem, I'd start by looking at the oil in the autobox. Maybe it would benefit f
