  1. Bit of an update, hopefully solved.... At the weekend I changed the FPR, bleed valve etc in the fuel line at the oil filter block and replaced crank sensor again, although it didn't look too soiled this time. I then took it for a long drive to get it all warmed up and to a point where I could replicate the problem. After 35 miles I got a total cut, MIL light immediately on but dead engine.... Coasted to a hat, luckily in Lay-By..... Waited, started and it failed again soon after. I swapped in my spare ECU (Codes already learned for this purpose, so only a 2 minute job)
  2. Really looking forward to seeing this all running again Tim....
  3. I seem to remember buying a generic loom with it and then wiring it in. Not too many wires involved. Need break in the feed from speedo to ECU (Pin 13 I think) and the Cruise wiring isn't too bad.
  4. Me too Mike... I replaced the thin one that's standard as it is originally fitted from above and tucks inside the top lip of the rear Cross member. I went for a decent aluminium tank guard that bolts up from below. Sooooooo much simpler.
  5. Well.. One of the pressure testing kits you found arrived yesterday @reb78. No opened to package yet but will offer feedback after the weekend. I'll test it out on the outgoing FPR and see what that's doing / not doing and fingers crossed I won't need to drop the tank and replace the noisy pump... Bloomin hate the standard tank guard on the Td5 90....
  6. The seals and injector loom allegedly done recently and there is no issue with the running or starting.. No evidence of air in the system etc. Rocker cover has been off recently. Looks like a new gasket. Cannot check pressure without a way of measuring / adding something into the system. I don't own anything but willing to take donations The ECU / sensors don't record pressure. ECU only registers fuel temperature. All other parameters are air temp / pressure /water temp related.
  7. Hi all... I've had hands on this vehicle and still no definitive solution, so I'll share what I know and have observed in the hope this can be solved.... Loom - All that's accessible from under the vehicle looks in very good order. No chaffing or breaks in the convoluted tubing that covers the loom. Checked from seat box, over rear of gearbox / Transfer box and along the side of the gearbox. (Still to lift cubby and check over gearbox) No oil at all in ECU Plugs. Fuel Pressure Regulator is leaking minimally but had covered the crank position sensor in diesel & oil.
  8. It's just the 110 going through the self healing process.. It looks like corrosion.. Leave it another 25 years and it will be pristine !
  9. I have ARB's front and rear and under loaded situations they do not restrict flex much at all but do offer stability on road etc. It's always going to be a case of one thing will compromise another.. Nothing will ever be amazing off-road, climbing rocks and immediately the best mannered road vehicle. Each of us choose a compromise.
  10. I'd still have one if it arrived free... (Can't afford these luxuries otherwise..) Would be a good touring vehicle I recon, regardless of it's off-road credentials.
  11. Lake District 2019 - Credit Dicky.....
  12. Although in a different league, we have a Leaf and it's a great commute vehicle... Quick, quiet but not so good for range. 100 miles real world if you take it easy ! They will be very useable one day. Still can't see them taking over from IC and expect Hydrogen to be developed far more longer term....
  13. There was a post @Daan did a while back where he explained that he almost always greases his props off the car and had had virtually no UJ Failures in years. He uses a vice to pressure the cups that are greased to close up and force grease to the other cups.
  14. It's not a great deal of money, replace the MAP sensor. The ECU does have a fall back map for MAF failure and in some cases people do report an improvement, but in the majority of cases it will result in a lack lustre performance. Get a decent brand of MAF.. Siemens etc. I drove with a straight through centre section for a few years and have since reverted as it was a bit "boomy" and droned on long journeys.
