  1. Just looked at standard wheels the strap ought to pass through one of the 'slits' that are around the wheel. the wheel is not solid all the way around.
  2. yes a spoked type of wheel or land rover wolf wheels - the straps will pass through the holes around the wolf wheel (and the holes in modular wheels). sadly not the standard rim though.
  3. i wouldnt use them on hard clay or mudstone (see other posts). for info they come with rim protectors for low profile wheels.
  4. if the handles are bent then just cut the strap. the US Army and other agencies have bought them. i can't see that happening without testing but I'll let you know how they go. i'd be surprised if they bend that easily in the mud around where I am
  5. true enough. i might just use them on trips in unfamiliar ground. whereas for use where I know the ground the truckclaws will suffice
  6. yes, sensible and judicious choice of when and where to use prevails, but I could have used them on the farm the week before they arrived. I was stuck near a field gate where the cattle churned up the mud too badly. they would have been much quicker than lots of shuttles with the max trax or walking to the farmhouse for the tractor! and would have left no trace beyond the cattle.
  7. Christmas present in the post today! I've just got hold of a pair of 'Truckclaws II' to get out of the mud - so small, simple and with advantages over tracks and mats (I have used maxtrax till now!). I'm looking forward to trying them out soon to see if i can discard my maxtrax! https://youtu.be/O_uofTU8GTc
  8. Hi, my 300tdi 110 was made (i understand) around the cross over point between 2 variants of engine sump drain plugs and washers (a feature is the switch between copper and aluminium washers). Can anyone help me with what part numbers I need for drain plug and washer? My VIN is SALLDHMF7TA974250, and Engine no 16L A30152A.
  9. thnaks for this I'll print and compare to my battered original!
  10. I'm trying to find the part number for the fuse layout sticker/decal on the inside of the fuse box cover for a 1995 300tdi 110 (VIN SALLDHMF7TA974250). I can't see such a thing in the decal or fuse sections of the pdf parts book I have. can anyone help please? thanks.
  11. I'd love to know how to get to 36 mpg! i have plenty of power and now I'm used to driving the 'new' engine am getting a shade of 30.9 mpg consistently.
  12. Most of the improvements have indeed come from the things you refer to, almost back to 'as it left the factory', but the last 15% or so has come from the combination of increasing the RAI tube size and the air flow from inside the wing to air cleaner box, both of which were done after getting the engine to where it should be. Defender2.net has an interesting thread on air flow http://www.defender2.net/forum/topic49178.html?highlight=air+intake
  13. I have a 1995 Defender 110 300 TDI and often tow an ex-Army Sankey MkIII trailer converted for camping. Until late last year, I was averaging 26-27.5 MPG (see note 1) My old steel military raised air intake (RAI – see note 2, Bearmach or Mantec brand I think) with 2.5 inch internal diameter tube was rusty and needed replacing; and I replaced it with a Mantec polyurethane 3 inch tube RAI (with Donaldson Air Ram head). This immediately increased my MPG to 27-28.5 MPG; I also noticed a small increase in power. This set m
  14. i don't but i'll ask the guy that did the work, thanks for this
  15. I have a 1995 300 TDI defender 110. Up to a few months ago I was getting 30 MPG ‘daily driving’. Sadly, the vehicle failed the MOT on emissions grounds. To cure the emissions problem I had to replace the turbo ( a vain had seized), recondition fuel injectors (they were 20-25% out), and recondition the fuel pump. At the same time I also had the engine carbon cleaned. After all this work, the increase in power was phenomenal and the emissions were virtually zero but this came at a cost — I now get 25 MPG daily driving (and I consciously keep my foot off the accelerator pedal!).
