    ABS retro fit

    My 300TDi Classic has dual line calipers. The D1 300TDi didn't. It's an easy swap, but still. Again, my biggest issue with all this would be line pressure differences from having a different master cylinder. The Freelander system could work, as it's a standalone valve block with a separate master. I think the D2 as well?

    There's no kill like overkill, I love it

    ABS retro fit

    You'd have to convert to single-line front calipers. And I have no clue if the pressures are matched at all, it's basically changing to a (potentially very) different master cylinder. Sensors I think will be the least of your worries, it just needs a digital road speed, and the 4 ABS sensors (which I doubt have changed).

    Nope, the valve block is different inside.

    To be fair, it's hard to take a picture in the workshop without a Lotus in the background

    New Series - RR Heavy

    Very nice episode, good to see it running
  7. Also haven't seen any without the caps. I doubt it'd hurt to fit them. How far down are your adjusters? Good to see it was such an obvious problem.

    Japanese import,air suspension codes

    Indeed, or parked slightly cross-axled and went down to the bumpstops. Or sometimes even the rear starts going up, and throws the front just out of range. Not that uncommon an error. But it's a soft fault, so should clear automatically.

    Japanese import,air suspension codes

    I don't think there's a difference in fault codes. After a few weeks of sitting, is it sitting on the bumpstops, or are the bags still inflated?

    Urgent request P38 diesel.

    A few years back when I had a (smaller) split in my rad, I bought some high-temp epoxy and smeared that on. Worked fine for over a year. Maybe would've been an easier fix on the road than swapping the whole rad out, but I'm glad you managed it.

    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    My Mercedes dealership also has the cars and commercial/trucks in the same building. No issue there, I don't see why JLR would mind. Especially considering the heritage they're selling.

    ATF in the bores?

    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    Air suspension dependability in remote areas is fixed with a push-fit schrader valve and an air compressor. The bags themselves are hardly failure items, unless you run them for 20 years without looking at them. Just like other rubber components, like tyres. For me the trade-off of a bit of extra maintenance is so worth it for the versatility of air suspension. Towing, heavy loads, aerodynamics at high speed, ground clearance at will, ... Plus, it allows independent suspension to work better off-road by cross-linking the bags, mimicking a live axle. I'm honestly interested in the new Defender. If it's somewhat affordable, offers a BIK-friendly hybrid option, and doesn't look like arse I'd seriously consider one for the future.

    New Series - RR Heavy

    Damn, it really hurt seeing you hit that rot... LR isn't shy to leave unused connectors around, maybe for uprated speakers or something? I'd zip tie it somewhere instead of letting it rattle there though
