  1. Has any one come across a kit, or fitted a system that will hold open a Discovery 2 tailgate on a side slope or in heavy wind? Cheers Mark.
  2. Has it got ACE? I'm going to guess yes - If so Check the drop links.
  3. A stock Td5 110 should be able to pull over 80MPH even on Mud Terrain tyres - they do rev a fair amount though. On road tyres it would pass 90MPH when new. With a power upgrade they pull the 1.22 transfer box really well. It should crack 50MPH in 3rd as standard, so 60MPH in 5th should not be a problem! Mark.
  4. Hi Nige, Thanks for the response/offer, PM sent. Regards Mark.
  5. So my Ibex has been off the road for a few years, undergoing a slow change. It now has a 3948cc (cross-bolted) Rover V8 on an R380. The megasquirt kit is on and does run, but very, very, rich. My friend and I don't have any indepth knowledge of the megasquirt. I therefore need to find a company or individaul who is able to sort the vehicle's running out for me. The vehicle has no MOT or tax (currently SORN), which is not something I can remidy until the engine runs properly; however I can trailer to anywhere within approx 200 miles from Reading. I am looking for recommendations for someone
  6. All interesting points - However if people didn't buy them new, how would everyone on here have their 2nd hand ones?!!! Even for a ground up restoration, somebody bought it new!!
  7. You need to bleed the system as mentioned - the correct process is:- 1. Ignition on. 2. Press and release the throttle repeatedly until you get an orange warning light flash up (more like 10-15 times). 3. Leave for purge to complete (circa 5 mins - light goes off) - you will hear the pump going through various priming cycles. 4. Ignition off. 5. Ignition on. 6. Crank with throttle floored - release throttle as soon as engine fires. Regards Mark.
  8. Students filling in the forms - got 2 out of 3 right, that's a good result - send it back again and it will come back right.
  9. I not sure if this is still active. The simple answer is to phone a dealer. If you are too late, Ashcrofts do a mod, I think. Mark.
  10. Update London Low Emission Zone (LEZ) – Clarification of affected Land Rover models Please note updated text below. The London Low Emission Zone (LEZ) was first introduced in 2008. Vehicles which are subject to the LEZ must either meet certain emission standards, or pay a £100 daily charge to drive in Greater London. Initially, the LEZ applied only to HGVs and coaches, but this is due to change on 3 January 2012, when existing standards for HGVs and coaches will become stricter. Larger vans, minibuses and other specialist diesel vehicles will be given LEZ standards to meet for the first
  11. I'd guess at the handbrake dragging (very fractionally). Mark.
  12. Glad the sods didn't get it. From the title I thought they'd turned up in a quick getaway car!
  13. Are you sure it is a misfire - rather than the speed limiter? For UK markets (unsure of others) there is a speed limiter (currently set for actual speed of 82MPH - although often reads as 86MPH on speedo). The smoothness of operation seems to vary from vehicle to vehicle - some are very smooth in operation - however some do exhibit a misfire like snap reduction in throttle. So if is is around 130 - 135 KPH it may well be this. Mark.
  14. Correct it is an internal buletin to clarify the confusion about the new regs. I thought it may clear up the topic a bit. Mark.
