    The EBay Christ I fancy that 4x4 + its cheap thread

    Am I totally out of touch with prices now? But didn't that seem an awful lot of money for a s3?
  2. Lol, I just logged on to post that :) Love how he was caught out by his own cctv :)

    TD5 speedo display

    I had them top out much faster than that, the needle stops responding (I think, was quite a few years ago now) but the mileage still went up. Each speedo was slightly different though. Hmmm, now I think about it perhaps the sender is the limiting factor as I was using a function generator so didn't need the sender. Anyway, so long as it works then who cares how it looks You've also got a far clearer bench than I have ever had.

    Glad you got to the bottom of the flickering light, could have been one you ended up chasing around for ages if you hadn't remembered about the smaller holes.

    Post a picture of the underside of your new board Ralph, perhaps you have a bad joint.
  7. Hi I have fitted a Puma dash to Td5 defender and would like the new dash to read true miles for my car which is 40,000 miles the Puma iPad reads 129,727 is this possible  mr Cwazywabbit cheers Chris

      As yet I've not looked at a Puma dash, however reading the following post leads me to believe it to be possible but it will require a chip to be replaced. http://www.defender2.net/forum/topic5632.html you will need a replacement M35080 memory chip as the existing mileage can only increase unless you replace the chip. The chips are currently about 5 quid.
      How have you made the Puma dash work with your TD5?

    Impressive approach angle, do the tyres stick out further forward than the bumper?
  9. Can't you extend them and just send for complete dipping? It's possible to get items re-galvanised, that's all you would really be doing.

    It's interesting how the different rules breed different hybrids

    Excellent! Does this mean you can go and drive now? or do you have to wait for the V5?

    R-Tech Welders - A mini Review

    I know this is an old topic but I see comments about a settings guide for the r-tech 180. They have one now on their site (also have one for the 250) Here's the link for the 180 @HoSS if you haven't found it in the last couple of years https://www.r-techwelding.co.uk/media/attachment/file/r/-/r-tech_mig180_weld_settings_chart_2017.pdf

    I imagine that those steel pipes being clamped directly to the front cross member also aids cooling. Like a big heatsink.

    This should take you to the dismantling post in the thread TSD linked to

    Also in case you are unaware the Disco sender outputs twice as many pulses per revolution as a Defender one.
