  1. Thanks Steve. Yes it is. We are fortunate to have a big shed to keep it in. So it’s always dry stored when not being used. the next project is the brothers 109 2a rebuild and the other brother whom needs took his hybrid swimming and the engine drank some river water.
  2. Thanks, It’s a 1966 2a. Not sure if that’s early or not to be honest. It’s still got the original solex, we have a Weber and did intend to swap but the solex has been fine, so haven’t seen the need it’s got a genuine 37000 on the clock. We had to register it with the Dvla for road use, it was used at silverstone as a fire tender, then someone bought it stripped it but never put it back together. When he bought it, it came as load of spares in boxes etc. That was 15 years ago. We have photos somewhere, but I would need to dig through a HDD.
  3. Just thought I would share what we have been up to on the old mans Land Rover. it is a 2.25 petrol, 3mb with a Turner 8:1 head with hardened valve seats. It’s not been a used a great deal over the last year so it needed a bit of TLC to get it fit again, so usual oil change, plugs, condenser and points etc, the only thing got us was a misfire at load and then twice we got caught out when hot she wouldn’t re-start. It was stinking of petrol so no spark - rechecked the points and condenser both ok. Did notice that’s the distributor vacuum advance sliding plate - whatever you call it - was stuck so that was freed up and cleaned up too we also found the HT lead from the coil to the distributor had a bad connection, so we put a new set of leads on. the carb hadn’t been looked at for well over 15 years so we stripped that down, cleaned and rebuilt it with a new spare kit including all new jets. We also pulled the sediment bowl and cleaned the gauze on that. Don’t know if anyone has seen this, but I couldn’t see the timing marks on the flywheel so set the distributor, so I just set it so the rotor arm is pointing at no 1 cylinder at tdc firing. I didn’t touch the collar at the base of the distributor so it’s ok and runs good quick tune up and she’s running well. So satisfying working on old stuff that’s easy to trouble shoot and work on. Just thought I would share in case it helps anyone else out. How can I add a video ?
  4. Bought this recently, not used it in anger yet. For the money it seems ok. Chuck is a bit fiddle - I would of preferred a standard Chuck with a key but this has collar that needs rotated by hand to lock the drill bit in the Chuck
  5. Send it back. The impeller should never touch the housing
  6. Gents, I was just voicing my opinion. Perhaps a bit OTT. I didn’t intend to upset or such like. I have a great deal of respect for the community. It’s one of the very few adult places on the internet where a thread doesn’t descend to the gutter and everyone is honest and willing to help. jason
  7. Sorry gents but in this instance, I’m struggling to see why this thread needs to continue. in my opinion, it has become somewhat tasteless with discussing the smaller details of the Dukes’ Land Rover. regardless of one’s personal feelings about the royals, they have lost a husband, father and grandfather and I feel we should respect that.
  8. Thanks mate. Plenty of reading now 👍
  9. Has anyone fitted an M57 engine into a 110 / 90? The brother has bought a 110 with a galvanised chassis and a cracking bulkhead so it’s looking like the ideal candidate for a conversion. It’s currently got a 300tdi that’s looks like it’s been toyed with, he’s not into the idea of keeping the tdi. We have seen MW machines 4x4 are manufacturing a kit that will be a complete install but to the tune of £3.5k it’s pricey, although I’m sure it’s spot on. any input from anyone whom has done it before?
  10. If it’s for infrequent use the corded makita multi tool is spot on. The lead is super long so you find yourself limited and it will outlive the battery platform when thats eventually superseded
  11. I’ve bought two of these fake makita impact wrenches. They have gone up a bit now, but for £25 they were a bargain compared to a proper makita.
  12. Two simple battery tests I was told one could perform are, assuming the battery is in the vehicle that is. 1. Resting voltage of the battery. 100% is around 12.5-12.6 volts, less than 12 volts it’s near deaths door. 2. Measuring the voltage while cranking, if it drops below 9v its goosed.
  13. @Badger110 thank you mate. will update when it’s done. Off to work next week. So will most likely be looking at getting it done in feb / March when I’m back again.
  14. @Badger110 thanks for the advice. It’s invaluable. Sounds like a plan. I have eaves on the outside, but it’s the facing the weather so will cover it accordingly to prevent any water ingress. I am getting full sheets. He has 120mm thick sheets for £25.
