  1. IVA and re-registration/road tax question (UK)

    You canget good power and torque out of a 2.25 petrol. You can also make it bigger without anyone knowing...
  2. Discovery series 1 3.9 v8 looking to buy

    Rust - if it's metal it will rust. Everywhere. Anything that moves, holds fluid, is a conduit for electricity, seals, cools, generates, pumps, compresses fluids or gas, etc will go wrong, often
  3. Adventure Overland anyone?

    Hell aye
  4. Adventure Overland anyone?

    I have a 'Stand' again. More of a social center than a stand; and not for teetotalers. Drop in if you want. It'll be under the Budget Overland banner
  5. Forum relay: Northwich Cheshire to Hampshire (back axle)

    What kind of time frame? I have to collect the V10 within a couple of months. It's in Chester. Reckon an axle would fit in the back
  6. We were looking at this yesterday
  7. With an MoT coming up, I've been checking out my '93 model year prior to the test as I really hate it failing. I've had a few issues over the last few months with the indicator dash warning light. Firstly it got a bit random and then failed completely. However the trailer warning light was fine. No indicator warning light is an MOT fail Replacing the bulb is not straightforward. It's a total pain in the backside unless you have 8" long fingers, each equipped with an extra knuckle. I had to take the binnacle apart anyway to remove unused radio switches and to replace two back light bulbs (Lucas LLB286 12v/1.2w and available in LED form ). The binnacle is easy to take apart - four screws, two under the top lip above the instrument cluster and two under the bottom lip below the instrument cluster. To swap the warning light bulbs out , you need to remove the four retaining screws for the cluster then gently bend up the metal frame to slide the lugs out AND undo the speedo cable. This is a bit fiddly. BUT and it's a big but, before you do this pick up a spare flasher relay - preferably Hella but the Bearmach option is quite well made - and swap out the old one. This is a five minute job. The unit is behind the panel that accesses the fuses and is on the RHS of the steering column. bend the mound towards you to make it easy to slip the old relay out. You'll most likely find that sorts your problem!
  8. RRC Rear Springs

    They used to make good copies, but like so much now, the quality has really gone down
  9. RRC Rear Springs

    I know. It's quite frustrating to have found something that you know is right, that does the job properly and doesn't cost the earth; then to have it simply disappear due to lack of sales/interest. Britpart do make a copy but it's really not very good, goes soft really quick
  10. If I wasn't married, I would take that adaptor out for drinks and a meal...
  11. I know him quite well. SuperPro Europe are based in my village
  12. Like I said before Pete, drop it down to me, I'll take it down to the farm and we can use it in the workshop heater
  13. SuperPro body mounts are very good
  14. LED trailer indicators and dash tell-tale

    After years of swapping trailer boards around, I bought a set of CE approved LED magnetic trailer lights (and a magnetic number plate). They are brilliant. Solid state, well made, bright... Only 21 quid delivered from China
