    Door leak

    Mike puts out one or two videos per day. Informative and very candid. He also takes requests for 'how to' questions. And then there was the raccoon! C

    Defender two piece doors seal

    Thanks, Neil. For what they are, and the price that is being asked, I think that I will try and fashion a set from the foam capping used to seal a truck cab. I can cut out the channels and seal off the studs (which I have liberally coated with copperslip.) The Series version of the seal is dirt cheap also. Thanks, C

    Door leak

    MIghty pricy! Couldn't you make some replacement foam ones from the material used to seal the cap on the back of a truck bed? C
  4. The doors on my ex MOD 1995 110 two door are the two piece, sliding rectangular glass units. There is a rubber/plastic seal between the window and the top of the door. Is this the same piece as the one for the Series 3 doors? Here is a picture for reference. Thanks, Colin

  6. Was out taking photos this morning and took some of the motor that got me there. It is a great start to the day watching a sunrise and taking the beast for a drive. May all of your oil drips be small! Cheers, Colin
  7. I was out playing and hit a rock with my front steering guard. The left side support was bent in such a way that the support started interfering with the steering drop arm. I filed a notch in the support so that I could safely get home but needed a more permanent solution. I had the arm straightened and then had a gusset welded in to reinforce the support in case I find the same rock... In case you have the same skid plate, you might want to do the same. Cheers, Colin

    Bolt on block

    What is the purpose of this bolt (or row of bolts) just above the fuel injection pump in a 12J diesel? Twas leaking oil so I tightened it up. Thanks, Colin

    Oil from water pump bolt hole

    Thanks, Ralph. Yes the engine is a 12J. Turns out that After I put the new gasket on the water pump continued to leak out of the weep hole. Time for a new pump. This one was only two years old with not many miles on it. Are water pumps a short lived item? Thanks, Colin

    Rear crankshaft seal leak

    I believe that the seal was the one that came with the Payen gasket kit. The one that I replaced was the $$ one from Turner Engineering that was put in when the engine was rebuilt two years ago. Not sure if the seal was faulty or the installation was botched. I made sure to put some gasket material around the lip of the gasket hole before I installed the gasket. There have been no leaks so far, but the water pump has started to leak so that will need to be replaced before I can take the beast out for a good thrashing. C

    Rear crankshaft seal leak

    I guess that this is the smoking gun... The engine was practically pi$$ing oil. What a pain it is to replace this seal!! Here is a before and after showing the offending seal and the new one in place. Did I say that the job was a pain?? C
  12. Is this a bad thing? Far left hole had some oil come out when I removed the bolt. I am taking the water pump off to fix a gasket leak. Does the bolt block off an oil channel? Thanks, C

  14. Met Tim Slessor, author of "First Overland: London-Singapore by Land Rover". What a genuinely lovely person to chat with. Incredible selection of Land Rovers on display also. C
