  1. Oil and temperature safe hose

    What about some flexi steel pipe like an ibaspakker exhaust?
  2. Oil and temperature safe hose

    Hydraulic hose?
  3. Probably, my mate used to work at a Bosch dealers so brought me the best ( fueleist) one out of his many spares and we put it in about 7 years ago. I cant get into the pump easy because of the OBA setup otherwise I'd have a look
  4. I have a very steep pin in my 300 it smokes like hell but spools very quickly and once there's boost all 100hp is unleashed quickly.
  5. Electrical help

    The multimeter just has one setting that shows 10A max this is where the measurement was taken so I'd guess its 0.05A? Yes both gauges are the same model and make and all three wires on both come together and are crimped into the appropriate connector. id rather not buy any more they are fairly dear! will.
  6. Electrical help

    Ok chaps, with multimeter connected in series of the permanent colour wire the it's reads nothing with the ign off and .05 with ign on. It must be drawing something as unplugging the wire loses the memory. It's hard to judge when the gauge drops out but ~10s cranking shows a low of 9.61v I'd estimate it drops out at around 10v. the diodes I have read SB5100 pec5200 and are a similar size to the coloured band on a male spade terminal will. Ps, fridge I'm insulted! This is the finest tat the Stars and Stripes have to offer carefully nailed into a British motoring icon!
  7. Is there a legal reason you cannot build one?
  8. Chassis purchase

    Also interested I fancy one for mine.
  9. Electrical help

    Ah nearly worked but it's over 10mb
  10. Electrical help

    Yes they have both perm and ign live connections, both boost and egt gauges are glowshift black 7 colour gauges, the boost one always stays green the egt is green when you ign on but drops out during cranking, they are wired into the same feeds, I will try and get a measurement this weekend as any further progress is useless without, I hear you fridge but I think the cabling is fine it fires the tdi up pretty much instantly. I did take a video but can't see how to upload it from my iPhone? will
  11. Electrical help

    Thanks, the gauges have both an ign live and permanent live, the gauge does it even with an 1100amp tractor battery that's been on charge from my mxs180 however not if you jumpstart therefore I think it's very sensitive to a small volt drop. will anysize diode do? I have some I used on my led spotlights when wiring into the reverse circuit. will.
  12. Electrical help

    Morning all, this is something petty that has been bugging me for quite some time, I have an aftermarket EGT gauge and every time I crank the engine the volts must drop and the gauge resets to its default colour blue and I like it green so have to change it. Slightly annoying is there anything I can put in its power supply to stop this? Feed and earth is both good and also exactly the same as the boost gauge next to it that doesn't do it. Thanks, will.
  13. What's my 52 plate 110 x Scottish power worth

    3.5 to 6.5 I'd say bob, I've been watching these 110s for a few months, wash the **** out of it, spray black oil on the chassis, take the wheels off and black the drive members and nuts and do the x member and tow bar and your 5k easy.
  14. Discovery 2 chassis

    New chassis time, having welded a shot blasted chassis in good condition I can tell you LR added fare more rustofast and spattertastic properties to D2 chassis.
  15. Re-flooring my trailer

    James price up to swap to a new trailer it may work out cheaper. A company called gwaza offer very well priced wheels and tyres. will.
