  1. Can anyone recommend a press

    just as a pointer (and not wishing to teach anyone to suck eggs) but you can greatly reduce the amount of force needed and the risk of damaging the component in many cases by applying a shock load whilst pressure is applied in the press. E.g. pressing out a something and with 10 Ton applied, a sharp whack on the casing of the item you are trying to extract from with a hammer often means it will start to move and the pressure gauge jump down. It is relatively easy to smash cast components with a press if you are too heavy handed and this really does help
  2. 255 85 16 - non MT tyres...

    I went from 255 to 285 BFG Muds and I can confirm that the 285's are a lot wider Will try and remember to stand a 255 next to my truck and take a picture at the weekend
  3. Shelving

    Interesting. They all had the same amount of weight on them!
  4. Shelving

    Sorry Geoff - Had totally forgotten to tell you that there are matched pairs! I have made sure you have the correct pairs to make level shelves across both of your bays. I tend to put the ones that have the bars welded closer to the bottom as the bottom shelf just because it gets the shelf closer to the floor. I had not noticed that some were stronger than others....they seem to all be the same to me, just welded at different positions to the bracket. Yes I have some more of it if anyone is interested! This lot made its way from Suffolk to Somerset
  5. Forum collection or relay

    Thanks for the kind offer Neil, unfortunately the sale on this has fallen through Sam

    That may well work. I am waiting for them to get back to me. I will let you know Thank you
  7. Stop Solenoid changed and all is now good
  8. Reading back through my previous posts I realised that I had said the lift pump had been plumbed in by the previous owner before the filter....I got that the wrong way round. The PO had plumbed it in Tank - Filter - Lift Pump - FIP. When I changed the lift pump I re routed it to the correct way of Tank - Lift Pump - Filter - FIP
  9. Thanks for the info - I didn't know you could remove the plunger on the stop solenoid. I will do that tonight and hopefully that will resolve my issue and prove where the fault it. It feels like this is my problem as the sudden jolt is like the engine turning off then on again. The pump is brand new and yes it is a Delphi. I am happy it is fitted correctly (it is a brand new one fitted when diagnosing the first problem). The truck ran perfectly for a few months after the lift pump was replaced and the fuel filter plumbed in after the lift pump. This appears to be an unrelated issue to the first one. Will report back on findings Thanks Sam
  10. A variation of this problem has now occurred... On one journey (whilst towing a 2 ton digger) the truck lost power and the gained power really suddenly giving a very harsh driveline jolt. Initially I though it had jumped in and out of gear. It did this twice on that journey. I then drove it again, still with the digger on and it ran erratically and kept dropping power then going normal again. Gave it a check over and noticed the fuel filter needed a tighten. It then drove for 5 miles with no issues. Drove it another 2 miles and it was barely drivable, power on and off like hitting a switch making the truck kangaroo down the road. It now barely starts I have not had time to start digging around but the sudden on/off sounds like a failing stop solenoid to me? Has anyone else experienced this types of symptoms when one fails?
  11. Hi Does anyone live near Luton, and would they be prepared to collect a ramp jack/jacking beam for me? I expect it weighs around 60kg as it is only a 1.5 ton one I only live in Ipswich Suffolk (1.5 hours away) but I can't get there for the next 2-3 weeks and it is a bargain so I know it will get snapped up! I can then collect at a time to suit you Thanks Sam
  12. Refurbing hydraulic cylinder journals

    Better to drill out and bush back to size, then when wear starts to occur again it is much easier repair than if you increase the pin size
  13. Shipping Large Items

    I also have this advertised on the FullFatRR forum, someone there suggested 'Big Dave' who is on the FFRR forum His website is here http://www.md-couriers.co.uk/
  14. Anyone going to Kelmarsh ( Billing ) show

    I too have been going to Billing for a number of years (most of the last 12 years) but I did feel that it has lost some of its sparkle in recent years. The new show on the old camping grounds can never be as big a show due to space limitations so I am going to go to Kelmarsh. I think it is worth a punt and can then make my decision based on that Fingers crossed. If anyone does go, look out for a white 200tdi 90 SW with matching 109 camping trailer
