    Plower electric Defender

    https://www.popularmechanics.co.za/wheels/sa-man-converts-his-jeep-to-electric-power/ This was back in 2014, so with the advances in battery and controller tech, it should be more efficient/feasible today.

    Chances are good you will have been. I can't see LR being that dumb.

    The long slot will be for the crank position sensor, so whatever the location of that is, relative to the timing specifications will see you right. I see a 5th hole in your yellow ring of bolts, possibly/probably a locator pin to take the guesswork out of position.
  5. Is the toe board clearance set up correctly since you reinstalled the master? The procedure should be in RAVE.
  6. Try the rag trade/haberdashery shops for card. My wife is ex-rag trade and she has dozens of patterns that are thick manilla card. It's about 1m wide and is in a roll, but the shops should sell per meter for small piecemeal jobs. You can get regular manilla paper as well as the card, so be careful of the weight per sq meter when you buy it.

    Clutch problem

    Griff, I will definitely be doing that first. I was just hoping to tap into the collective knowledge base to see if the prognosis should be good or could be dire...

    Pulse Generator - LT95

    Garry, What form does the signal need to be? Would something like the pickup for a bicycle speedo not work, it uses a rare earth magnet and a pickup to get the signal. There should be space on the handbrake drum to stick the magnets and a bracket for the pickup?

    Clutch problem

    My Disco2 Td5 has suddenly decided that going into reverse is too much effort without rolling the car back a bit first, which is obviously far from an ideal situation. The pedal is also spongy with the clutch taking just off the floor, no juddering or sudden "bite", just the spongy pedal and low actuation. I am going to change master and slave as a matter of routine, but I want to know if I should take a deep breath and budget for a clutch kit and DMF, too? Thanks!

    TD5 engine swop

    Swap the ECU with the engine, you will get the benefit of the better pull-away acceleration of the automatic engine's map. You may need to inform the BCM, though, I can't remember from where I read it. Nanocom should do it fine.

    Seal seating tools

    With a suitably sized socket to apply motive force via a buggering stick, and an extension if reach is needed.

    Repair panels

    Drat! Just when I was getting excited... Oh, well... I guess it's going to have to be the hard way, then. I need to replace the roof after it had an argument with a tree branch, and the screen needs to come out to do that, so pulling the dash and doing that at the same time will keep me off the streets for a while.
