  1. I’ve no idea tbh, it just started spewing oil out of the filler neck so I assume it’s getting pressure from somewhere. I sense a strip down is in order.
  2. Anyone know why my compressor would suddenly decide to throw its oil out of the filler/breather? Gasket gone causing pressure in the sump is my guess but I’ve never worked on one before.
  3. If you type that item number into EBay it should come up with a bus bar which I’ve used for power distribution. You’d still need fuses and relays but I used a separate box for that. They’re not integrated as with the Bussmann type.
  4. Cheers, I went for the forum search first👍
  5. Has anyone fitted the ABS wings to their Series? Any good compared to the originals?
  6. I used this for distribution. Item number 331927780896
  7. Cheers. It looks like I may have found one locally and might get it this weekend.
  8. I’m still thinking of getting a narrow track but I’m not sure about the availability of consumable spares for the axle such as bearings, seals etc. Are these still available or are people struggling to find them?
  9. My four words were: ‘I fancy an auto’... The rest as they say is history 🤦‍♂️
  10. I used braided nitrile hose and AN fittings for the V8
  11. Looks good. I’m trying to source some material for when I build my own cubby box so what did you use for the padding and top? Foam and vinyl?
  12. I saw a photo on a news website and it looked like the rear was raked much higher than the front almost like a standard pickup vehicle. This photo makes the vehicle look a lot more level so I’m wondering if it had air suspension fitted.
  13. Nice to hear that his coffin will be carried by one of the royal Landrovers.
  14. I’ve just fitted a transmission oil temperature gauge to mine as I’m running a ZF too. I removed the warning light switch as I didn’t have the lamp anyway and fitted the sender in its place. Spoke to Ashcrofts first and they said it would work fine as it’s constantly being splashed with oil even though it’s not submerged so will work as well as the original switch did.
  15. I’m thinking of having a go at repairing my tub using Ali welding rods but when filling in small holes I’ll need something on the back to stop the molten Ali from dropping through until it cools. I know from discussing mig welding that you can use a piece of copper to do the same job but will copper also work with Ali and not stick to it or do I need to look for some other metal?
