  1. Thanks for the updates guys. What was the lead times on your orders? It's been nearly a month since I placed, and paid for, the order and I have been leaving messages for over a week now. I know life gets busy but all I'm asking for is an expected delivery date. I don't really want to have to tell my credit card to claw the money back but I'm close to doing that. Cheers, RichT
  2. Hello, Anyone on here know Kieron of MK Performance Hose? I ordered and paid for a hose from him the middle of last month after a chat via Facebook PM. However he has 'gone dark' since then and no hose delivered. No response to Facebook PM, Phone call, email or txt. So if anyone else knows a way to contact him I would be grateful as he has had good write ups. cheers, Richard
  3. Hi secondjeremy that is very interesting re the diameters. The ones in at the moment are, I believe, bearmach and I have just ordered up another. If I get the same issue with the new one I'll try a Britpart. This may be the one time when their sometimes less than exact reproductions of the originals is a boon! I'll update this thread with results.
  4. Plus one for Beaumonts - very good service and we got a good box off them too.
  5. Hello, earlier this year I replaced the bushes, dampers and u-bolts on the suspension of the SIII SWB. A couple of weeks ago we noticed we were getting a slight 'clunk' going around corners. This weekend that clunk had matured to give an almighty bang when going around a tight roundabout at speed. Investigation found that the near side front chassis bush was lose in the chassis. If I take the bolt out and move the shackle plates out of the way I can push the bush out with my finger - this is not normal behaviour. I have ordered up a new, Bearmach, bush in the hope the old one is slightly off in manufacture somewhere - not sure who made the failing one. However if I get the same behaviour with the new bush what options would you suggest to remedy this issue? Various options have been put forward in the pub; ranging from knocking a shim in around the bush to running a thin bead of weld down the inside of the hole in the chassis to tack welding the bush into the chassis. cheers, Rich T
  6. Thanks everyone for input and suggestions. So Autosparks got back to me saying that the plugs are injection moulded for them in house and the plug can not be bought to sire up at home. They do sell the individual plugs and sockets though so I could make up ends to connect to the one in the picture - which at the moment is looking like the best way forward. cheers, Richard.
  7. Hi, I am about to replaced the indicator/headlight stalk on the SIII. The PO has made some modifications to the wiring and I would like to try to return a few of the wires to a semblance of originality. I need to source a 3 pin - 2 female / 1 male connector to fit the plug in the photos. I have had a look on line but cannot find one, TBH I don't even know what these are called - other than you b*£$!^&d son of a gun when you are struggling to get them undone and then they suddenly 'go' and you slice the back of your hand open on the sharp edge of the dash! So if anyone could point me to a source or tell me the proper name so I could search that would be appreciated.
  8. So quick update.... Once I investigated properly I found that the fuel sender unit was not fastened down properly - it had a good 2mm+ 'float' up and down and was missing a screw; that may have been the main culprit. I have replaced all the seals leading into the tank and replaced the screws as the heads were a little chewed. After a test drive the smell of petrol is much reduced. Hurrah! 😀
  9. right - ignore that - found a solution. 😊 https://www.autosparks.co.uk/electrical-components/plugs-connectors/automotive-plugs/hazard-warning-switch-plug-complete-with-terminals.html regards, Richard
  10. Hello, I need to wire a, old style from a early 110, hazard switch but do not have the socket for the switch to go into. Would anyone know if the sockets can be bought on their own or can suggest an alternative? cheers, Richard
  11. Right some seals ordered and when they come I'll check the pipe as well. Don't know when I'll get chance to fit as life ( well death specifically ) is keeping us busy at the moment. I'll update the thread once I've done the work. cheers, Richard
  12. Thanks for the replies. Yes had it running stationary and checked the fuel lines - no splits or leaks found. Re the tank - what needs checking for being sealed? The pipe connections? What's the best thing to use to seal them? Cheers Richard
  13. Hi, my wife's Series III with a 90 2.5 petrol webber carb'ed engine quite often stinks of petrol in the cab when its being driven. I do not think there is fuel leaking out around the carb - I have checked with it running and can see no drips. What is the most likely culprit for strong petrol fumes? cheers, Richard ( with a petrol headache )
  14. many thanks for the reply. I think I have, finally, found the part numbers ... a) Bell Housing Stud 247145 / TE110061L b) I don't think my description was very good. It's actually the Land Rover Handbrake Back Plate Gasket, 561856 c) I think that yes I was talking about the early mount - the part is 90217976 Stud for Gearbox Foot. Those studs are hard to find on the parts diagrams ( well I thought so but then I had mislaid my glasses.... ) My local fastenings company does not stock the studs so I'll be ordering those up via a LR parts supplier - along with the gasket. regards, Richard
  15. Hi, Following on from my thread about gear box swap out. Can anyone give me... a) specs for the bell housing to engine studs please? I think some one said they are metric? b) part number for the seal on the back of the hand brake plate. ( Not the felt one - I be far a look in the parts book but can't see for looking 😕) c) the gear box mounts to the supports using studs. Why can't those be bolts? Thanks Richard
