  10. cheers reb78 I was hoping to go to Norway next year in it .I was thinking I may need to get the injectors tested
  11. I left the defender (200tdi) running in lockdown for an hour a week to keep the battery topped up .it started to get a bit smelly so took it for a spin and a huge cloud of white smoke bellowed out of the back .it cleared after a mile or so it runs smooth and starts on the button .it hasn't lost any water and burns no oil .there's nothing from the oil filler cap .the turbo is in good shape .has anybody got any ideas ?is it possibly dirty injectors?
  12. I oversprayed the one side of my galvanised turret with the underseal 2 years ago and its not budged so it obviously sticks well

  15. hi iv just ordered a Richards chassis has anybody had any experiences with painting a galv chassis ? last year I fitted new galvanised turrets and while I was spraying the inner arches I got black hammerite waxoil underseal on them and it stuck like god knows what. is this an option or am I talking carp ? can anybody give me some advise on what they have used and their experiences .I need it painted as my last defender probably got stolen because the galvanised chassis was on show .

  19. hi all im afraid its come to the stage where I need to think about respraying the landy . can anybody give me any advise on what the best paint is to use and how much I need for a 90 defender not including the roof or the inside as Im keeping the original colour scheme . its red if that makes any difference
  20. this morning I took my cambelt off to find out what exactly was causing it to ride forward .all the pulleys seemed fine until a came to fit the new belt .then I noticed the pump pulley main bolt had worked loose so the pulley could move forward when ever it felt like it .all sorted now thanks for your help.
