    200tdi with r380 gearbox questions

    dont think a td5 r380 imput shaft is correct length even if you had a 300.

    Chinese diesel Heater under seat on a 110.

    agree my eberspacher 801 controller has the temp sensor built in to control fan and heat level but when i looked into it and even that looks like its just a on/off signal im tempted to buy an ebay special sim controlled relay to text it to start also an 801 can be set for for different run times so wonder if a 2 second pulsed signal will start it and run for an hour

    theres alot of vw campers running the heaters without issues. alot have also done the co tests and someone even used thermal image to compare to an eberspacher and results were very close as to not make a difference. also the chinese have flame out and overheat sensors and when stripped down are hard to tell apart. now how long they will last is the 5million dollar question. facebook have several groups for these heaters and main issues seam to be the glow plug fails which a genuine ebber plugs straight in

    yes but you would need to keep doors open so its inlet air is not heated as thats where most temp sensor are located so it ran flat out.

    theres an average of 3-5 a day being reported on landywatch facebook page. alot get used for parts or cash point removals. others vanish into thin air so christmas has nothing to do with it just a very easy vehicle to steal and handy to pull out cashpoints

    ive also heard its better to run keroscene as although btu output is less its a cleaner fuel

    it was sent to the eberspacher dealer for service and checked over as it kept smoking and cutting out, they said it was because its too big for the landrover. so i sold it and got a 2kw and no issues since and it still cuts down to tick over as heat is still in ample supply

    ive got a 2kw in a 110csw and its more than enough. had a 5kw eberspacher and it kept sooting up as never really ran on high power for long enough

    mud do a bracket/housing to sit it under the cubby box. they will fit under drivers seat in the tool box or ive fitted mine under rear seats. 2kw will get my 110 from 3 degrees to 30 degrees in under 10 mins. 5kw will just soot up as wont run long enough on high

    front brake upgrade?

    now i know what the issue is i am ordering new calipers on monday

    front brake upgrade?

    right i think i finally sorted it thanks to everyone who commented took front pads out and i dont know why but when i pushed pistons back in i can only assume some seals had twisted and when i tried pumping the pedal without the pads in only 2 each side actually came out. ive got all pistons to move out and poured some fluid on them as i pushed back in by hand. now pedal is at the top and now when i brake i actually stop and can lock front brakes. once again many thanks to you all

    air hose size

    does anybody know the o.d connection on a 300tdi air filter to air inlet pipe from the wing? also the air pipe that goes to the turbo from the air filter has a join in the middle, should there be a band inside so the outer can clamp against it as mine keeps coming apart.

    front brake upgrade?

    its fitted with the pdwa or was. ive taken it out as it only indicates a pressure loss on a 110 only thing ive not done is calipers and servo. may have to take the gamble. ive got new tyres going on at the weekend so may take pads out and check the pistons again and try re bleeding again
