  1. Now I’m really worried about my V8 and auto in the series 🥵🥵 A winter car only methinks..😊
  2. Pretty straight forward. The sensor just replaces the points and condenser. It should come with instructions for wiring etc but it’s not complicated. It will just give more consistency and reliability to that part of the system as you no longer need to check points and regap them periodically. This type of sensor fits into the original distributor and everything else such as dizzy cap and rotor remain standard.
  3. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/151154977555 Something like this.
  4. As above, replace the points with an electronic pick up unit. Easy to fit and much more reliable.
  5. One other query, can I fit anti burst locks in place of the standard ones on a series 3 door?
  6. I’ve ordered the channel from the S3 club so now I need to get the rear window seals etc for the truck cab and both doors. Would Woolies be the recommendation for those and again glue in or re-rivet?
  7. I thought that was just for headlights? Does it apply to the other lights too? I can’t see much difference between the lens of the LED and standard Wipac units if I’m honest.
  8. I was wondering if you can just replace the bulbs with LED versions and keep the original lamp units? My lights are fairly new so I don’t want to buy new ones if I can avoid it. Or are the LED lens different? I’d need a LED flasher relay for the indicators too but that too should be a straightforward swap.
  9. Who are you guys buying your replacement window channel and window seals from? I need to do them on my truck cab. I’ve read good reports about the Rocky Mountain aluminium channel kits and also the plastic channel that the Series 3 club sell but it would be good to hear from anyone who’s done the same job. Do people still fix the channels in with screws or glue them in? I need the corner glass seals for the truck cab and also a set of decent door seals. I think I read somewhere of people glueing a single piece seal around the door aperture rather than use the individual riveted style so any feedback on that would be appreciated. Be nice to know who or what to avoid too 👍
  10. I think I’d prefer to swap to the econoseal plugs as I’ll upgrade the headlight loom to relays at the same time.
  11. Anyone fitted the Wipac LED sidelight and indicator kit to a Series? I can only find ones for a Defender so presumably the Series loom plugs need changing to suit the lamps or vice versa?
  12. Came across this article online. Never heard of anything like this before at Billing or any other show. https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/boy-cried-campsite-refused-family-20936039
  13. North West Propshafts made mine. They advised against fitting a DC shaft and instead suggested a wide angle yoke style. The angle between the gearbox and the diff is important and should ideally be below 15 degrees but the closer to single digits the better. I fitted spacers under my axle pads to achieve the right angles but I’m still to use it on the road so can’t say yet if it’s ok or not.
  14. I bought my V8 from Mark Skitt in Aberystwyth who breaks P38s. He’ll sort you out with a decent motor. Here’s a link to his eBay site. Item number 113947572066
