    Favourite socket set

    The sockets are about 2cm across or .8 of an inch where they go into the ratchet head. The 19 mm socket there is an adaptor that makes it a 12.mm or 1/2 inch drive to take it. The model number of the set is HG01215 or IAN303402.

    Favourite socket set

    Went into Lidl and picked theirs up. Solid piece of kit. Will need to see how it lasts.

    The new Defender is now pointless

    Talking about changing batteries on electric cars - have a read of this article on Nio battery swap system. The company uses pop up centres and swops the battery in 5 minutes.It even includes a story on a driver driving from Beijing to Shajing and back [about 2,800 miles] and swapped the battery 16 times! https://www.telegraph.co.uk/cars/features/eyes-china-next-level-customer-care/ Wonder when the Western car makers come up with this sort of infrastructure to support electric cars?

    Bolt kits ?????????

    I see you are in Portugal, hence the request to a website. I have used Wright off Road in the past and have found them to be good. http://www.wrightsautosupplies.co.uk/ http://www.wrightsautosupplies.co.uk/product-category/land-rover/assorted-restoration-packs/
  9. I used to have similar issues and it was caused by the rear loom running inside the chassis becoming chaffed and then shorting intermittently. It was driving me mad as some days the vehicle worked and then it did not. In the end I had to resort to an car election who discovered this and replaced the loom outside the chassis which solved the issue.
  10. it is worth having a read of this. It is about the Jaguar Land Rover classic works and what they keep and replace on vehicles. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/cars/classic/restoration-drama-inside-jaguar-land-rover-classic-works/

    Odd GKN overdrive behaviour

    Have you remembered to clean out the high pressure filter? See below courtesy of Buckeye Triumphs write up on the J type over drive. Plus the picture from the GKN user manual. http://www.buckeyetriumphs.org/technical/jod/JOD2/JOD2.htm
  12. Western. Thanks. I will post pictures once fitted.
  13. As per the title, what is this part and where does it bolt to? It is the silver painted part I have laying on the transfer box. Peter
  14. David, on checking today Reb78 is correct. There is only an inch or so behind the overdrive before the chassis cross member on my 110. My preference would be a deeper sump. I also agree with Reb78 about a drain plug so that one does not need to take all bolts out to drain the oil.
  15. Sorry - found one now. Also a photo of the maximum overdrive one installed. I was thinking of instead of the deep sump as per maximum overdrive. Just a spacer using the original cover plate, as per my very poor excel mock up.
