    Which Tyres

    Hi Smallfry, Thank you for the info. I was wondering about changing the profile and/or width, and weather the insurance would consider it a 'modification'. as you say it gives me a lot more choice . Need to to check with the insurers Cheers

    Which Tyres

    Hi all, The free lander i have just bought needs tyres. Can anyone advise on the best option for a reasonably priced tyre. And what rating is recommended for the FL. I have seen some car tyres that are the right size (225/55/17) but unsure if they are suitable. I am hoping to keep it below £100 per corner I don't intend to go mud-plugging, mainly lane use ,some motorway miles and to be able to pull the caravan across a wet field Any advise/experience appreciated

    main prop shaft

    Thanks for that FF. yes i am new to land rovers. I had my own repair shop back in the 80's (i am now 58) i have always repaired my own vehicles and the LR flander looks fairly mechcanical,so i am happy to do any repairs needed. Not very familier with 4x4 systems but will learn quickly. Maybe i need to do a new post , but was wondering exactly what i have (no v5 yet ) is there a information port anywhere i can put in the reg/vin no to find out some more detail on what i have ? I will always try to get genuine parts where i can. Too many problems in the past to muck about with patern parts. I have looked at some previous posts and there is a lot to take in but enjoying all so far. Kind regards Ralph

    main prop shaft

    Thank you Glenlivet . Is this the normal issue ?. If i get a new prop with new vcu i should be good for 4wd ?. Its SORN for now so insurance not a problem. I do need 4wd so will be looking for prop and vcu . It looks like a straight forward fit, or is there any issues with re-fitting a prop. Kind Regards

    main prop shaft

    Hello all. Ive just bought a 03 LR Freelander kalahari, it has a few faults that i can resolve windows,locks etc but have just got underneath and noticed that the main propshaft is missing. OK i should have noticed when i looked underneath when i bought it but was only really looking for rust. you may have already guessed this is my first landrover . whats the main reason for removing it. I guess its not just for economy, running it as 2wd. I will get a prop and fit it but thought i would join you guys and gals and get some experienced info. FYI its clean and tidy and runs fine with 9 months MOT,i paid £300 so happy to sell on or brake it if i cant get 4wd out of it. Any advise would be greatly appreciated Best regards Ralph
