  1. Thread size and form

    UNF not UNS... S stands for special and its not special, just not common.
  2. STC1172

    Ive got the majority of the contents of 2 richard. if there's anything specific you want, just shout.
  3. Diagnosis confirmation needed

    Ralph, its a 300 pump Richards got from me on long term loan.
  4. My 24 year old 200tdi rebuild

    Good effort Ralph.
  5. 110 CSW 300Tdi shock absorber advice needed.

    If your happy with the Ride of your 110, stick to standard Land Rover stuff. You could use 130 rear shocks to increase the damping effect but you probably wont notice much different if you dont load your 110 up. For aftermarket stuff, I personally would only ever use Koni Heavy Trak shocks. Adjustable, and lifetime guarantee.
  6. 200tdi battery recommendations

    I have a Varta 072 in my 110, given me 11 years service so far.
  7. Handy Negative Electrical Connection

    Any bit of body work would be fine. I usually run any earths to the closest screw/bolt.
  8. 255 85 16 - non MT tyres...

    No, I found my 110 didnt handle any different to when it has 235's on.
  9. 255 85 16 - non MT tyres...

    Cooper do iirc the ST tyre in 255/85/16. I run on the STT as 285/75/16 and have no issues. Did lose a little steering lock but its not made parking at work any more tricky than it already was.
  10. Defender 200 Tdi Alternator upgrade

    Just means you have more amps available. Youll be on the limit of what the belt will drive however. I would stick with the 65 amp unit if i were you.
  11. Tyres - arrrrrr

    Iirc the Cooper ST is available as a 255/85/16.
  12. challenge truck alternator.....

    Fit a 2nd one if i were you... No alternator.... No winch or vehicle.
  13. Crack between valves

    Have it pressure tested. Its toast if the cracks gone through. If it hasnt (like on one i know of) its absolutely fine to refit.
  14. Refurbing hydraulic cylinder journals

    Open the holes up and make new pins or open the holes up and bush them back down to size. Or fill the holes with weld and then remachine to size.
  15. Sliding transmission mounts..

    Do you have enough space behind the boxes to move them enough to get a clutch in and out?
