  1. Jut pull the plug off the back of the alternator and see if the current drops. Peter
  2. That's huge! Did you remove ALL the fuses at the same time? Cheers Peter
  3. I'd find a tame garage, get them to write on headed paper the engine size and number (with vehicle chassis and registration number) on a headed paper and send that to DVLA. Cheers Peter
  4. Hello, the voltage drop will be minimal. What you need to do is put the meter on Amps (or milli-amps), remove the battery positive lead and then put the meter between the battery positive and the battery positive lead (that is in series completing the circuit). That will tell you the current drain. Then remove each fuse one by one and see what circuit is causing the drain. Cheers Peter
  5. It's not a simple switch, there is some electronics involved. I fitted one, so search "puffernutter" if then helps. Cheers Peter
  6. I don't think either are particularly easy. Doesn't the 200TDi disco require a different exhaust? Cheers Peter
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Did you need to change the indicator relay to cope with the lower current draw? Cheers Peter
  13. 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
  14. Agreed. I swapped my 19J (1990) for a 200TDi and kept the same exhaust. No cat in that system! Cheers Peter
