  1. I am enjoying this thread, although in essence its says as much about the membership of this forum as it does about the new vehicle. I think a lot of us on here are hopeless romantic optimists harking to days past when life was simpler. In a world where MP's don't take any notice of their electorate and ringfenced state pension funds are Maxwelled by the government, this new Defender could've been a helluva lot worse. I would go as far as to say it could remove our reasons for having 2 vehicles. I like a lot on here have a second daily and a 110(currently in component form). But the new Defender looks like it would serve daily duties, nipping to the tip, camping, family stuff and a fair crack at off roading. So, it may not justify a second vehicle for daily duties as it covers all bases, which I expect was the design brief. Looks like JLR just shafted us all....... and then the price!

  4. What I usually do is very very carefully with engine running is to sandpaper the edges of the belt. It' never failed to work for me.
  5. I think the pass of the cattle has got to be included. A169 Pickering to Whitby. Hardknott pass. Strines Moor A6013 through Wigtwizzle. B1363 Sutton Bank to Easingwold. Llanberis pass. West coast road of Mull. All memorable.
  6. Ross, Have a look at this_ http://www.turbotechnics.com/?page_id=14 Download the catalogue on that page, some useful reference in my opinion. Cheers Chris
  7. Have a look at ebay item 351427431668. I have got one of these to fit my 110 but it needs restoring first... Pipework and rad mountings need to be changed a bit though.
  8. I have stripped and cleaned my 300tdi injectors in the past. Used petrol to remove the bulk of the muck. Then bought a cheap ultrasonic cleaner from aldi or lidl and gave them 20 minutes in that. Reassembled using diesel as a lubricant. Maybe worth fitting new nozzles. Just make sure they are genuine Bosch as i haven't heard good things about the chinese variants.
  9. http://www.devon4x4.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&view=topic&catid=16&id=131443&Itemid=106 Have a look here. B posts are repaired somewhere in the thread.
  10. I've experienced the solid flexi hoses too. Not just a freak occurence then.
  11. I used Les's guide to change my transfer box. Worked a treat. Thanks Les.
  12. Don't want to sound insulting, but have you tried changing the fuel filter? Mine was well down on power and that sorted it. Must have been contaminated fuel as it was only installed about 4 months.
  13. Have a look on superturbodiesel website for mercedes diesel. Lots of threads discuss what you want to know.
