  1. Hmmm...I wonder if I should do this with my 2.5 N/A? Nah...68hp is heaps! Cheers, Colin
  2. https://forums.lr4x4.com/topic/101076-retirement-cake/ I posted this on the Defender Forum, but thought that some folks here might appreciate this also. I am blown away by the detail...right down to the side fuel lockers. Cheers, Colin
  3. TIAB, I was searching 'driving lights' and I found this post. On my Jeep JK I have Quadratec LED headlights and on my 110 I have LED replacement bulbs.The lights on the Jeep are very bright, especially on high beam. The LED's on the 110 are quite bright, but suffer a bit through the Hella glass. I have placed an LED 20"light bar on the front bumper of the 110, but have not had it in the woods yet. C
  4. I am retiring in a few weeks. I am looking forward to having time to get my 110 Defender back on the road and using it to explore the back roads and trails of Nova Scotia. I was completely gobsmacked when my wife came out with this cake! It took about 7 hours to make and is about 18" long and 10" high. The canoe mirrors a cedar strip that I built that will look great on the truck's roof. The details are amazing. Nice bow wave!! The cake was tasty too!! Cheers, C
  5. Denz1l, Where are you located approximately? What prices one pays in England make those of us in North America quite envious. Pictures help also. Welcome to the forum. It is a great place to learn. C
  6. Phil, My 1995 ex MOD 2.5 n/a 110 is a Defender...says so right on the front. Cheers, Colin
  7. Does anyone have any experience with this sort of pedal lock? It seems that it might do. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Land-Rover-Series-2-2a-3-90-110-Defender-Security-Pedal-Lock-/252825369213 Thanks, Colin
  8. I have never heard of replacing the arms either as any changes can be 'compensated for' in the valve clearance adjustment. Mine looked exactly like this when I rebuilt my 2.5. I have heard of replacing the shaft that holds the rockers should it be worn, but that is not what you are asking here. Don't forget the little mushrooms on top of the valve stems! Cheers, Colin
  9. My 12J is also an Ex MOD 110 LHD from the British base in Alberta, Canada. It has the same tag on the rocker cover as well as this re-manufacture tag. I'm still not sure what the Mk. 4/6B is all about. Cheers, Colin
  10. Just got a 41mm socket ($9.95) and with the injectors out the engine is easy to spin. I am using the breaker bar to rotate the socket - I cannot close the bonnet with it still attached. : )
  11. would that need a 12" lift kit?
  12. Kev, Good job on the videos. I can relate to working in the driveway and getting a face full of dirt (episode 2)! This is a friend and I reattaching the engine to transmission. Cheers, Colin
  13. Oops! Stories like that are yet another reason why it is more fun to work on your own truck rather than have someone else do the work!
  14. Kev, Ordered the washers and they were dispatched today. It was snowing on Sunday so I didn't get much time to look at the old washers...providing that they are there. Thanks all for your replies. I guess that this is an obvious solution. I use a remote starter on my MGB because I cannot get a socket easily on the crank pulley nut. James: That sounds like great advice with a bit of a back story?!
  15. Is there an easy way to bump over the engine from the engine bay when adjusting the valves? With the starter relay inside, is there a safe way to bridge the starter? Thanks, Colin
