  1. Is the splined adapter enough to deal with any misalignment between the shafts?
  2. Excellent progress sir Nice to see something different coming together

    DIY Snorkel

    Excellent, that's far better priced ducting than the silicon stuff that they wanted £30 for 50cm of!

    DIY Snorkel

    Cheers @dangerous doug, excellent idea to use a bit of silicon hose between the main snorkel and the wing, I hadn't thought of that. Have you used anything 'special' to keep the internal ducting in place? Or is it just cable tied to other things to stop it flopping around?

    DIY Snorkel

    My 110 has had a Mantec steel snorkel fitted since before I bought it, it's all rusty to the point that a hole has rusted clean through the mushroom top, it also has a hole in the flexible pipe that attaches to the wing. The internal piping in the engine bay is also not sealed very well so not really doing the job. The idea popped into my head after seeing the Protection and Performance snorkel ( https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LAND-ROVER-Defender-3-Snorkel-air-intake-top-fits-with-our-external-cage/162147951992 ) that I could knock one up from stainless exhaust pipe parts for a lot less than they want. This would also give me the opportunity to bin the existing side intake ducting with it's small air restriction. So I have a few questions, which no doubt some of you will have suffered the pains of researching previously. 1) Does anyone know of a supplier of suitable (reasonably priced) induction hose to connect the snorkel to the airbox? Needs an internal diameter of 76mm to connect to the airbox spigot and I'm guessing about 1m long. 2) What have people used as the snorkel top? 3) Anyone got a reasonably priced supplier of 76mm stainless exhaust bends and pipe parts? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Am I totally out of touch with prices now? But didn't that seem an awful lot of money for a s3?

    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.
  12. 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?
  14. 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
