  1. Xtraordinary Spec XS-SPEC
  2. Hi FF, I imported my 110 back in 2006 (permanently). They are strict on the cleaning but there are companies specializing in it and the company I used (Jeffs Vehicle Deliveries) did it for a fixed fee including pick up from the port in an approved curtain sided vehicle, transporting to the approved cleaning facility (also owned by Jeff's) and delivery to my home. Personally I would say if bringing your own Land Rover Camper is affordable for you, do it! There are so many places to go here that you would not be able to visit in a rented camper. Some due to lack of off road ability but also some due to them being off limits for rental vehicles (for insurance reasons). Skippers Canyon near Queenstown being one that springs to mind. Its a public gravel road but very narrow and cut into the side of a gorge with big drop offs. Its spectacular but no rentals allowed. Also places like Macetown, Big River and Denniston Plateau (to name just a few) would not be accessible for you. There are many, many places here that your 127 would access easily and are genuine off road adventures. The self contained sticker would be a good addition and give you additional freedom of not having to find a proper camp site each night. Andy
  3. Saw my first one yesterday. In Merivale, which is the Chelsea of this City.....
  4. I agree, but its possibly not on the side of the dizzy on a 98 disco. I think they had moved to the coil mounting bracket by then.
  5. Hi Rikk, as others have said, put a 3.9 in it. For what you would spend on the 3.5 its a no brainer although technically here in NZ you will need to get a cert for the increase in capacity. Whereabouts in NZ are you? Andy
  6. You can definitely just plug them. I did it about 2 years ago and oil pressure all good. Thread is M20 x 1.5 Andy
  7. I fitted a factory low pressure in tank pump to an under-seat tank about 11yrs ago as part of a twin tank setup. Extended the support leg at the bit where the factory slotted holes/2screws were and added a short piece of hose and solder/heatsrink to extend the leads. I just used a holesaw through the tank with 5 rivnuts around the hole. But I did put a sheetmetal reinforcing ring on the inside clamped by the rivnuts to stiffen it up. Fitted with a standard cork gasket. No leaks. About 2 years ago I swapped the LP pump for a HP when I went EFI/Megasquirt. The heatshrink did not seem to have been affected by the fuel and I'm still using the setup now. Andy
  8. 1mm cutting disc in an angle grinder and lube with candle wax every minute or so (just cut into a candle with the wheel). Cuts aluminum like butter, does not clog/pick up on wheel and leaves a pretty tidy edge. Andy
  9. Stainless is typically used in very high temp applications, cooker elements etc where the temp would cause tinned copper to loose it's spring tension then arc and fail. They need a special crimper. Tinned copper is better unless ambient temp prevents it's use. Andy
  10. There is a method used widely in Australia and also popular here in NZ known as the 4psi rule. Basically you measure cold pressure, drive for 20-30mins or so and measure again warm. The pressure gain due to tyre carcass flex should be about 4psi. If more than 4psi increase, the starting pressure was too low. If less than 4psi increase the starting pressure was too high. Andy
  11. Does it lose water, blow water out header tank vent? Or just read high on gauge with no other symptoms? Andy
  12. Did you ever do this mod? Did the ford sensor work with Gems?? Andy
  13. Fuel tank breather clear and not blocked? Andy
  14. No sense of scale from pic but look like aircraft wheel chocs Andy
