  1. Thanks for the replys guys, thought it was one of the cheaper ones out there as it came free with the bumper. pulled it apart and it's the coil springs that push the brushes that have broke , the brushes look fine . Thanks again Iain
  2. Hi folks, can anyone identify what make this winch is ? was on a bumper i recently bought and looks like the brushes are knackered so looking for id to get new ones. cheers Iain
  3. thanks guys managed to get one from local landrover dealer cheers Iain
  4. cheers for the quick reply mate that looks like it cheers Iain
  5. Hi guys i am in the middle of doing a cluthch change on my 110 csw it has a 200tdi out of a disco and the original gearbox , there is a brass bush in the center of the flywheel which is knackered does this need to be replaced or is it ok just to leave it out . if i need to keep it does anyone have a part no as looked in microcat but cant find it . all help apreciated Cheers Iain
  6. Hi guys how about a coil of copper pipe made to go inbetween the inner and outer part of the flask ? something like this you remove the bottom part of flask and sit it over the coil which would be in an upright position if you put a couple of clips on the bottom part and attach it to the chassis or somthing the flask would clip together and be held upright while it heats. once hot undo clips lift of flask . you use brake pipe and put in a cut off valve which would mean you could turn it off when not needed also if you put it in the truck it could be used as a heater too .if this doesnt make sence tell me and i will draw a picture . hope this helps cheers Iain
  7. Hi mate i had a rattle like that turned out to be the gearstick was loose might be worth a check. cheers Iain
  8. Being a biker i think all vehicals on the road should have them and there should be a law made to make people have them fitted as it can be imposible to see sometimes when you are behind a motor that hasnt got them fitted . (i would also like to say that i dont tailgate when im on the bike ) cheers Iain Quote I'd like to get some quick release ones for mine. The stone size a bfg mud can pick up worries me slightly after being hit by a few stones i can say it gives you a fright and can also hurt
  9. I too have to agree have got all the info i have needed from the archive or from posts after searching and the times i have asked for help i havent had to wait to long for a reply . so thanks to all the members for all the help. cheers Iain
  10. Hi guys thanks for all the replys , i think i should have said in the first post that it is the light bar at the front with 4 spots on it and not a lightbar/beacon . i welded a tab to the back and mounted the antenna there. going to get a lone of a nother SWR meter as i tryed with a piece of wire and it still goes off the scale started with it the same size and in the end removed about a foot and still the same . cheers Iain
  11. Thanks for the reply guys , i checked the conections and no short , also checked with a tester and there is a conection between the conector (outer part ) and the earth of the body . but i dont think it great as i use a earth wire for the lamps to the battery and i think the only conection from the lightbar to roof is from the bolts , will a piece of welding wire be ok for using instead of the whip ? will also try an earth strap from lightbar to roof. cheers Iain

  13. Hi guys well i took about three inches of a we bit at a time and the SWR still goes off the scale dont want to take anymore off incase there is a problem with the ground . cheers Iain p.s. is there anyone in the Edinburgh area that wouldnt mind giving up a wee bit of time to have a look.
  14. Hi mad pete thats the site i had looked at for the SWR readings must have missed that bit about taking 1-5 inch off . Thought it would only need a wee bit taken off will cut a bit off tomorow and see how it goes. Western you are correct there is a allen bolt for adjustment. Cheers Iain
  15. Yes its a new ariel will take a bit off tomorow and see how it goes a bit too cold and wet to try tonight. cheers Iain
