  1. Only just seen this topic, not on here as often nowadays. I'd be interested in one of these if you did get around to producing them.
  2. On the plus side it looks easy to paint the chassis when required......
  3. I'm not sure how the plug pushing in did the damage, unless perhaps it somehow resulted in a sort circuit of the output. Oh well, works now and a little more knowledge for the hive mind
  4. Yep, that's yours. I should have taped the faulty mosfet to the speedo before I sent it back so you could see the size of the thing that caused all the problems. I always get the good ideas too late
  5. It's bin-ward bound so I'd just cut the wide shaft a few inches from the end, the sliding section won't be particularly long and then you'll get to see what's stopping it coming apart .... and you'll get to batter it apart before binning it I too would destroy it apart just because
  6. Anyone tried the method shown in the video around 3:36? I know they are motorcycle callipers but it's claimed the bus garage used the same technique.
  7. Just wanted to store this info somewhere, thought this would be a good place. Looked at a TD5 speedo that had been retrofitted and the fuel gauge was showing max all the time, swap out proved fault as speedo head itself. After a bit of tracing the mosfet circled in the picture was found to be faulty. An MMBF170 (sot-23 package) works as a suitable replacement. N:B if instead you are suffering with the faulty fuel warning light instead see my post at the end of this thread for the component to replace.
  8. You'd think they would have done some work to the underside whilst they were busy spending so much money on the top.......
  9. Do you mean the pyramids? Google 'painters pyramid'
  10. To be fair that is something I'm dreading ......
  11. Yeah, the pic with the Guinness shows it better
  12. I've over 70 vices (yeah sad I know) with a fair selection of those being quick release, some over 100 years old. Not come across a quick release vice half nut that ever needed more than a good clean to stop it slipping.
  13. The last one of those I just brazed back together and it's held fine, they break in that spot when they get bent if the vice is dropped. Well strictly speaking they tend to break when being straightened without heat. Is there nobody near you that can braze it up? Whereabouts in Kent?
  14. If it's a galaxy try shaking it when it's not focussing, I know it sounds silly but it works.
  15. You'll get plenty of practice dealing with broken bolts The coil and the oil cap look ok 😛
  16. Is the splined adapter enough to deal with any misalignment between the shafts?
  17. Excellent progress sir Nice to see something different coming together
  18. Excellent, that's far better priced ducting than the silicon stuff that they wanted £30 for 50cm of!
  19. 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?
  20. 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.
  21. Am I totally out of touch with prices now? But didn't that seem an awful lot of money for a s3?
