  1. On that linked page, What's the difference between the pr2 TRW @ £21.78 from allmakes and the TRW from bearmach for £42 ?
  2. Run a temp live feed to headlight terminal to check it does work. Had this on mine, turned out it was a break in the wire, in the loom, somewhere behind the heater box. Cut and spliced a new length in, and been ok now for 9 years.
  3. Can't you put into first , depress the clutch, with brakes on, and turn the starter key, that normally frees a stuck clutch.
  4. Wasn't there a thing, where the ( I'm trying to guess/ remember here ) cam shells? used to rotate and block an oilway?
  5. After cleaning off , Smear with Vaseline. Years ago I had a prang in my old classic Fiat, front wing was a bit crumpled. Was winter, so I beat it out to shape again ( ish ) and sanded it all back to metal ready to apply filler, but weather turned, so I smeared bare metal ( 1/6 of the wing) with Vaseline, and it was a pretty horrible winter, come June the following year, Wing was still shiny under a thick layer of sticky muck, washed off with thinners and finished it off.
  6. Why on earth would someone put 305's on a Defender, I expect they come with a free X5 sticker for the back door. If you level a 110 when empty, as soon as you put any weight in the back, it is no longer level. My old ex mil 110 had std rear springs, and had HD + 1" up front ( for an intended winch, but truck was stolen ), and it sat level.
  7. I recently bought some new wolf ish wheels, and had similar thoughts, but I thought that having a spare wolf wheel with a 255 on would be one heck of a lump to lift up on the door. Whereas with 235's a slimmer 750 or 235 could be bonnet mounted. Opted for a 750 on std rim as a spare, with 235's.
  8. I too have 2 spare wheel carriers, MOD type bonnet one, and a rear door one. Bonnet spare....... Heavy Bonnet lifting, awkward to get wheel on / off bonnet, as you have to lift it on to the wing first. more weight on front means you can have vents open, without a gale blowing in. useful step up to roof Rear door spare...... easier to lift on /off adds a bit of much needed rear weight to an empty 110 makes door opening a tad heavier easier to check pressure useful step to get to roof With Wallace, I used a Disco pressed steel wheel carrier, mounted on a 3 mm ally spreader plate. The carrier is bolted to the door, (through the door) and on the inside, I have a x-plate cover, that is screwed to the door frame at 8" intervals with large self tappers, which adds a lot of strength and minimizes flex in the frame. I also cut lengths of pipe to sit between the door skin, and x-plate, through which the bolts pass, as anti crush spacers. works a treat, 12years now and still going strong.
  9. if you have no self leveller fitted, and its not soggier than a soggy thing, then the springs will already have been swapped for something else. Any colour banding on them at all, then you will know what you have, and which way to upgrade.
  10. Buy a set of Armstrongs, and a can of yellow spray paint, if your that bothered,
  11. have super gaz on Wallace, stiff as ol' boots, they are.Can't wait to get them off and go back to oil filled Armstrong ones , plus the rear top bushes aren't std size.
  12. as above, tensioner bearing? not something touching the fan blades is it, zip tie ?
  13. engine and gearbox, My old 110 used to do it, but that was a n/a ex- mil, fitted with an Isuzu lump. no evidence of oil leak, and only did it first thing, so I developed a 'bad' habit of pulling away in second, slipping the clutch a tad. (t box was changed for 1.4 btw).
  14. oil on the clutch from leaking oil seal, and / or rubber mountings old and perished.
