  1. Yet another 'what battery ' question

    Ah but the enduroline 069 std LR battery has 85ah and 680 cca, so how is the cvx better? and the Bosch mention above has 830 cca????????
  2. Yet another 'what battery ' question

    https://www.tayna.co.uk/Enduroline-CXV-X-1000-Battery-P9008.html this one? says 585cca? I'm confused
  3. Yet another 'what battery ' question

    ah thats only got 80A and 585 cca
  4. Its cold, its frosty, the battery is prob 4- 5 yo std jobby. and its a slow turn over, always starts tho. Its a 110 300tdi HT No frills no winch, no entertainment,. Whats a good battery nowdays, thinking BIG, 1000cca 110 AH type thing. A while back folks were raving about the Numax marine one, are they still available, / good, or is there a new puppy in the litter tray. Obviously needs to fit straight inn, no alterations to cables battery box etc, and pref under £100. Not going to stump up for an odyssey or optima. I'm sure technology has moved on a bit in the last 5 years. many thanks.
  5. I have used them on many occassions, and never had a problem, guess I'm lucky..
  6. Prep to fit new fuel tank

    I'm probably due to change mine soon as well, Was thinking of smearing the underside, twixt tank and cradle , with thick grease, that should prevent rust, would it not?
  7. Anyone know this 110 or build it ?

    does it have to be 12 seater, IIRC there are certain ISSUES with 12 seaters,ie insurance, towing (tacho?), foreign travel, and entry into London (classed as a minibus) , But I may be wrong.
  8. Anyone know this 110 or build it ?

    £12,000 for a 1996 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. Anyone know this 110 or build it ?

    looks nice, rear end sits lower than the front and what is that big ball on the roof for ?
  10. Loss of power and black smoke

    have a good look at your air induction hoses, could have disintegrated inside, and a piece is flapping about blocking air intake. ( turbo to inlet manifold). It's fairly common.
  11. white smoke LOADS!!

    previous owner may have swapped turbo in a bid to stop smoke, maybe thinking the seals had gone. Failed to cure it, so sold it! any water loss, if it smoked that bad, I doubt there would be any water left in it. Therefore as others have said, timing.
  12. Vacuum pump Tdi300

    what engine type? Mine went very noisy on the 300tdi, so needed replacing. I too red horror stories of the Wabco units, so shock horror.... I went for a BRITPART... Guess what......no really........ that was 5 years ago, and still going strong. Still can't quite believe it.
  13. ''for sale'' query

    Actually, thro' the power of t'web, I have answered my own question. I googled the registration, and low and behold, there it is, on airport duty........on the 'isle of Bara' parked right next to the sea ,on a peninsular of the tiny island, for presumable 8-10 years. and it was red. so i guess the salt air over the years had taken its toll on the underneath. Its in Midlands somewhere now. Power of t'web is a wonderful thing you know.
  14. ''for sale'' query

    I've seen a 'nice' 110 sw td5 on t'web, 02 my in keswick green + white with new white wolfs. ONLY 75k and was on 'airport fire service duty' . now this prob means it was red, hence the now keswick green. thing is, at only 75k,it states it has the following......... Genuine 75,750 miles just one previous owner (Inverness Airport Fire Service) Complete brake and suspension over hall including new discs, pads, calipers, hand brake drum, shoes cables, brake lines and flexis, new genuine LR H/D springs and shock absorbers. New swivels, seals and bearings. Fuel tank pump, alternator, battery. Perfect chassis ,outriggers and bulkheads, totally rust free. Full service just carried out, excellent condition Defender 100% structurally and mechanically, door bottoms all perfect, Fresh 12 month MOT with zero advisories , old cliché but first to see will buy. this seems rather excessive, do you think it has had a hard life, been in the sea, been flooded etc. does look v. nice tho, but a bit steep at £10,995
  15. Stumped - Knocking 300tdi

    you say checked the vacum pump, but have you swapped it for a known good one.maybe you could remove and try it, if thats possible without spraying oil everwhere. mine was loud. cambelt not slipped a tooth has it?
