  1. Winches for series

    Oh, and I forgot, if you want an X9, I have some
  2. Winches for series

    I have a working,but needs love, Pierce on my bench. It's barely 14k lbs, but you are welcome to it. It was a kind gift from a Dutchman on here, so it's yours if you want it. Gratis Worm drive and ideal for sedate but massive recovery Also got a Husky 8000 in bits in a box - but money will have to change hands as is owes me. Not much, but I need to pay the same Dutch man for what he paid for it...
  3. Superwinch Gaskets

    Worth noting FFOR now close on Friday JimBob at Gigglepin does a good motor gasket, worth the pennies
  4. Some idiots failing at recovery

    And then the news this week
  6. OME 764's - 200 Tdi Disco

    My cheap carp front springs have sagged to the point where the tyres are rubbing on the arches on full articulation. I've got 764's on the rear, with 18mm of spacers. I'm thinkig of going 764's on the front for a 1.5" lift and bettr weight carrying... Any comments/suggestions? I run a relatively lightweight winch bumper and a G10, I've swapped back to silly string, no silly bash plate. I run 245/75x16's, soon to be on standar disco rims to bring them back inside the arches more. RAW4x4 Shocks, SuperPro Bushes (not castor correction), standard arms....
  7. 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...
  8. 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
  9. Adventure Overland anyone?

    Hell aye
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. We were looking at this yesterday
  13. 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!
  14. RRC Rear Springs

    They used to make good copies, but like so much now, the quality has really gone down
  15. 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
