  1. 235/70R16 is about ~29.2 in diameter 235/75R16 is about ~30.7 in diameter 235/85R16 is about ~32" in diameter 265/75R16 is about ~31.8" in diameter i have 265/75R16 with no lift and there is lots of room the 235/85R16 is one of the standard factory fit size's
  2. try disconnecting the earth lead off the battery when parked up. if its ok when you do that then it is probably the diodes in the alternator have packed in allowing the current from the battery to energise the alternator thus flatten the battery when parked up. if it still dose it with the earth lead off the battery disconnected when parked up then its you battery that is duff
  3. the HMRC have just as many idiots civil servants who don’t have a clue as any other government agency. you only have to look as far as the farce in the last public consultation over excepted vehicles in notice 75 ware massive section of industry user groups were not part of the consultation and were sold out by the industries/groups that were part of the public consultation, there was no one from the horticultural industry groups, arboriculture etc.
  4. Could just be paying the price for using cheep springs that were not correctly tempered when manufactured thus will sag very quickly once they have been compressed a few times Or you are just compressing the springs to much as they are to soft with to much loading which has knackered them
  5. I think you will find most DERV has trace of red diesel dye in anyway especially if you have a DERV bulk tank at home or work due to the tankers delivering it WILL have carried red in the same tanker in the day/s prior to DERV delivery to you. For this resion there is a maximum PPM of red that can be found in DERV beneath witch prosecution/fine by the HMRC is imposable due the end user having no means to legitimately tell, distinguish or know.
  6. A BMW 3L 3.2L or 3.5L M 6 cylinder petrol engines A reliable 300hp all day long and with the BMW 2.7 that was put win the SA land rovers and 2.5L put in RR it should be eraser than some. BMW 2.5L/2.7L 6 cylinder diesel
  7. Err no full on challenge ones, there is more kudos to be had, after all finishing anything other than last in a factory standard LR would mean you did better than expected or should have done even if it was threw DNF’s etc of others. But I would be excluded by your rules anyway! “The event will be for individual vehicles, each of which must carry one driver and one co-driver” Guess I would just be to extreme for you!
  8. I would have had a go if “standard” actually meant “factory standard” rather than “modified” or that you were given a positive handicapping factor for being factory standard + standard towing hitch attached & as driver you would have to get out to punch your own card! Lol
  9. I would keep them fitted & have done for the past 18 years of 90/110 ownership, but then I live in the countryside with narrow roads with muddy edges. The problem with removing them is they keep the water/mud from the opposite side wheel as it sprays sideways at road speeds.
  10. Q1 = B: 3432kg putting a 3500kg trailer behind a 7500kg truck would be D = 23.41KN thus the towing hitch would need at lest a D value or Dc value of 23.41KN at 3500kg trailer weight.
  11. Both my Td5 90 & my Unimog u1600 are Insured with NFU Both fully comprehensive including use for work etc, they even gave me 65% NCB for the Td5 even though it was “new business” and all my NCB’s were used up on other vehicles
  12. true, but it is the LAW in the EU that 50mm tow balls shall not be used on trailers over 3.5 tonnes which overrides what’s written on the hitch even if its more than >3.5t also most people don’t understand what’s written on towing couplings & that KG (S, K, C) ratings MUST be used in conjunction with KN (V, D, Dc) values. e.g. Q1: your trailer coupling has a rating of 3500kg & a D of 17KN, with your trailer fully loaded at 3500kg what is the maximum weight of the towing vehicle you can use? A: 2767kg B: 3432kg C: 3997kg D: 4375kg hint: Q2: your 3500kg 2 axel trailer has a load bed 4.5m long & the drawbar length taken from the centreline of the load bed to the centre of the tow ball is 3.95m & the towing vehicle has steel springs, what is the minimum V value of the towing hitch you may use? A: 6.7KN B: 8.18KN C: 10.9KN D: 13.1KN hint: for an extra point your towing vehicle has air suspension which is taken as 1.8m/sec², which of A, B, C & D above would apply?
  13. 50mm tow balls with 2 bolt flange (BS Au 114a) are rated at NO more than 3.5 tonnes in the EU. 5 tonne ones with 4 bolt flange (BS Au 24) are ball & pin type ware the 50mm ball is rated at 3.5 tonnes & the pin at 5 tonnes.
  14. it is from the centreline of each wheel/tyre NOT the hub, if you look in your link it shows just that.
  15. You can get tubeless 3 piece split rims, I have a 20” set on my unimog
