    New Series - RR Heavy

    Nightmare, and kudos to you George. I know the message from your Series is kind of ‘just keep going’ - but I remember my Dad saying there are times when you’re better just shutting the door and leaving it. I’ve a couple of old motorbikes that are fighting me every step of the way to getting them done. One of them in particular has a way of breaking my heart at every opportunity. I almost hate it at the moment.

    Look what I brought home last night ..

    Still loving using this - and working through the various teething troubles. I can fit my daughters motorbike in the back ... Biggest teething problem was the rear diff exploding. I’d fitted Rover P4 used diffs - I had remembered them as being 3.9’s but they are actually 4.3’s. As an interim, and to assess how it ran, I’ve run it with the front prop removed and a 3.54 fitted. Which proved too high a gear - it’s like a 3 speed box with an overdrive, and on the B roads around me I can’t be in 4th or I get transmission shunting. So a 4.3 has been found and I’ll be off to pick it up shortly. A lot of things have worked really well - the heated seats are great and the Webasto is amazing. I left it on a few weeks back whilst we went into a restaurant- when we came back it was so hot 🥵 I suddenly realised my mouth was dry . The only down side with the vents is they get knocked shut when someone is in the middle seat - I could switch them to a non directional / closable vents ... but it’s good being able to direct the air - so I’ll live with it. Current conundrum is my indicators - they’ve developed a fault where they work fine without the engine running, but when it is running they behave like their is a bad earth, with the tell tale light having the faintest glow when they aren’t on - and when switched on they don’t flash. Any suggestions for it?

    Me too - plan is to get the 80” reliable and take that.

    Defender 200 Tdi water pump question

    It’s also possible you just had a bad one ... and the issue isn’t endemic to the brand at all. To help Turners, aside wether they can help you, I’d let them know. They may also say - yours is the only one that’s failed blah blah ... or yes, we found that and have a stock of Airtex...
  9. Are you close enough to anyone to borrow something ? Would you consider that ?
  10. Wonderful ! I fancied a capstan for my 80” - but as with your V8, the crank position doesn’t allow the drive to line up. My engineering skills mean that I need to use a Tirfor in that situation though 😂

    What gas did you use George? MAP or Butane? I have a plumbing torch with Butane and I’m wondering if that’s upto the job... The thread repair idea came from seeing this video years ago - starts at 1:00 in...

    I’ve had some of those rods sitting unused in my garage for years 😳 They are an aluminium’s alloy made to have a very low melting point and super high surface tension aren’t they ... I have an old carburettor with a stripped thread in it ... I’ve been thinking of setting a bolt in it and filling around it with the rod, see if it works....!?

    New workshop project

    I have to let the back tyres down on the 80” to get it in it’s garage - that has an up and over door. I’m looking at side hung timber doors - but have been suprised how expensive they are.
