    Power steering leak

    Finally got around to sorting this (I have 2 classics so always lots to do). New rubber o ring and leak all sorted. The thread gap was irrelevant, the o ring that was in place originally was too thin and small, guessing the garage didn’t have the correct size to hand. New correct size o ring and leak sorted. Thanks

    Rear door area

    All bought on eBay. Canvas Tarpaulin was £36 and the poles (adjustable tent poles) were £9. All good quality stuff too for a change.

    Rear door area

    Made a rear door card cooking area. Not quite in keeping with the standard military Defender but good for a brew and a fry up. Made up my own awning for 50 pounds, it’s pretty versatile and can go on either side or the rear, can be extended easily as well.

    Auxilliary Fan size

    Bought some Wynns rad flush. I’ll reverse flush with a hose first then give this a go. Might change th3 thermostat as well just for good measure.

    Are you still in Dubai? If so then yours is probably doing ok in that heat.

    Auxilliary Fan size

    Hmm it didn't leap up to the red but did rise up to it, up the very steep long hill. It settled down a bit after the hill but was still nearing the last portion of the white, albeit still in the white. I don't have much faith in the gauges to be honest but a rad flush, reverse hose of it would make sense.

    Auxilliary Fan size

    It's a 2.5n/a when we had the hottest day in May I watched the temperature lift towards the red fairly quickly. I was motorway driving and up a steep long hill. Although it never reached the red I thought I would fit a fan for peace of mind.

    Oil temperature woes!

    Fixed! Someone (not me) put the wire into the wrong connector on another junction box. All fixed now. Many thanks for the help, particularly the wiring diagram.
