  1. Yes, just make sure to clean thoroughly after using sandpaper, don't want too much of the grit inside the engine.
  2. That doesn't look great, no. Bearings showing copper is fairly normal at high mileage, what I find strange is where it's on the side of the bearing. The crank definitely looks like it needs a polish. Tight small ends shouldn't give a knocking noise, at least they didn't for me. And they came loose pretty easy just wiggling them around a bit. Had this shell been moved? The oil hole isn't lined up properly, that's not great. Looks ok to me, maybe a few more marks than you'd want to see, but doesn't look to me like it's been spinning around? Also doesn't look bad
  3. In Firefox the logo displays very small, both on desktop and mobile. Changing from #elLogo img { max-height: var(--logo--height) } to #elLogo img { max-height: 100% } seems to fix it. var(--logo-height) resolves to 10%, which is very tiny.
  4. I've had that too, nothing to worry about as long as it doesn't look like they've spun in the block.
  5. What do you mean? Just that they stuck to the crank?
  6. Looks like something is seriously wrong with the styling, is the Invision CDN down or something?
  7. Thanks for the endorsement, but I have barely enough motivation to do my day job, let alone mess with forums in the evening...
  8. Yeah. I had a look with the dev tools and couldn't get rid of it, very strange. Just tried again, and looks like I can get it gone with the following: #ipsLayout_mainArea { display: block; } #ipsLayout_sidebar { display: none; } Much better now.
  9. Yeah, I popped your CSS into Stylus, and it looks much nicer now. Just the stupidly narrow new content screen left.
  10. It looks different and I don't like it. But good that we're keeping up with updates.
  11. You won't regret it. My 4.6 has felt so great after the rebuild, and that was a fairly quick slap together of new rings and bearings.
  12. Just do them, they're simple enough when you're that far in. Checking bore ovality can probably be done with a piston and feeler gauges? Never tried it, but take a piston without rings, pop it in the bore, and measure the clearance. Then rotate 90 degrees and do the same? Should give you ballpark I think.
  13. What on earth is going on under that rear bumper?
  14. If it must be a diesel, get a manual. But really, just get a V8. No real rust problems except for the spare wheel well. The electronics are their main weak point. Don't buy one without air suspension, it'll most likely have been badly looked after (bar a few examples). I would've linked you to the tech pages on rangerovers.net, but looks like that's another website/forum that's turned into a dumpster fire after being bought by VerticalScope.
  15. Interesting review. I still want to try one for myself. Was this just a regular test drive from the dealer? Did they tell you to not go off-road at all? One gripe with this though. 99.9% of the time you're not using it. Being able to repurpose another control for a function like that I find quite nice. And it's still a physical control, you don't need to hunt around on a touchscreen while off-road for it. It's always bothered me slightly that the H-shifter on the P38 takes up so much real estate for what was solved with a small button on the manual versions.
  16. From Bottas' instagram. Think the Merc F1 page on FB posted about it too.
  17. Well, either you're moaning about it not being made in Britain, or moaning about it being too expensive. Pick one.
  18. Yeah, the cables can break internally. Sometimes you don't even notice with a multimeter because the current is so low.
  19. I've used both this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Qiilu-Overhead-Compressor-Installer-Universal/dp/B079BRLRX1?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_otopr_hd_bw_b5bbSQx&pf_rd_r=7RFZRNG2A6N9HQFJ8XAD&pf_rd_p=2d60101a-a1df-54b3-bc3b-a2db803b76fe&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=5136316031 and this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sealey-VS168-Valve-Spring-Compressor/dp/B000R9ZITC?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_otopr_hd_bw_b5bbSQx&pf_rd_r=7RFZRNG2A6N9HQFJ8XAD&pf_rd_p=2d60101a-a1df-54b3-bc3b-a2db803b76fe&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=5136316031
  20. Well, if it isn't, it's even more useless at being a filter.
  21. Oh, I know. Just seems a little sad to lose that small advantage Land Rovers have had for ages.
  22. Can still aim your diffs next to a rock. Bit harder to do when they're not in line.
