    low coolant warning light

    It's not a simple switch, there is some electronics involved. I fitted one, so search "puffernutter" if then helps. Cheers Peter

    easiest option disco 200 tdi or 300 tdi

    I don't think either are particularly easy. Doesn't the 200TDi disco require a different exhaust? Cheers Peter

    P38 compression test

    Not sure which of the 4 messages I should respond to 🙂 When I have done this in the past , I test all cylinders and look for a significant variation. Cheers Peter

    Import Help

    I seem to remember seeing somewhere (and my memory could be playing tricks) that the US doesn''t like the early LRs and they do not meet their strict "crashworthiness" requirements. As a historic vehicle you may be OK, but I vaguely remember seeing LRs being crushed by the US customs people! This is a topic that came up after a quick Google https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=23&t=1593182 I think you need to be very sure the paperwork is 100% watertight! Cheers Peter

    Clutch bite changed since cylinders changed?

    I know that my experience with many cars (not just LRs) is that when you change something, you think it is different, but if there isn't any clear way of proving where it was previously (i.e. by having measured it) your brain can play tricks on you. So after a while you wonder if it is really different or did I not remember the original properly! There are some exceptions, but it may not be as different as you think? Cheers Peter

    Curious ignition

    Diesel I assume? In which case either a small diesel leak past the stop solenoid or a residual voltage on the stop solenoid. I had a Defender with a 200Tdi do the same! There was also another thread last year on the same topic. Cheers Peter

    Rear flood light

    Thanks. I did the same with an old 110, just checking I would still need to. At least the LED are more common now, they were quite "novel" when I first did it and some b...d nicked them all! Cheers Peter

    Rear flood light

    Did you need to change the indicator relay to cope with the lower current draw? Cheers Peter

    Rear flood light

    I've just bought a couple of LED floodlights from a seller on FaceBook. £20 posted. I'll let you know the quality when it arrives. Cheers Peter

    Exhaust Cat or Not? 110 1984 2.5TD

    Agreed. I swapped my 19J (1990) for a 200TDi and kept the same exhaust. No cat in that system! Cheers Peter

    Brake Bias Valve NTC8836

    The only! issue is normally getting the unions undone if it has been there for a while! Cheers Peter

    New heater in the 110

    Looks good. Can't get the video to work. I fitted mine under the drivers seat, took the feed from the main diesel line and fed the hot air into the passenger and driver footwells. Peter

    1985 Ninety, wash/wipe switch issues

    That what I was going to say, it's not the switch on the column, it's the one in the wiper motor causing the issues. Peter

    P38 air compressor help

    What are the symptoms (apart from won't pump up)? Is the pump running at all? Peter
