  1. pumps for hydro steering

    I used a early cast iron rangie pump as they can be tuned - drilled and springs enlarged but still not quite good enough at tickover but thanks will look into the 300 tdi pump
  2. I was wondering what pumps you guys use for full hydro steer and to ask if anybody has found a cheap secondhand pump of ebay or scrappy ? like a lorry or coach pump maybe that works well ? Just need a little more power to mine as on tickover its a little hard to steer -
  3. series 2 - headlining ?

    Took the camera up the workshop to get the pics - and he's moved up to his house But yes Soren sounds like you had the same detailed headlining in yours with many pieces making it look real posh and a very expensive extra when new i would bet. I asked another friend who has restored a few series 2's and he said he'd seen one with a headlining that also had door cards as well from new thanks for your reply's
  4. series 2 - headlining ?

    A mate of mine has just bought a series 2 pick up with plans to restore and when i looked it's got a full cream headlining ? Been around landy's for 30 + years i have to say i've never seen this on a series ? looks like was fitted from new ? Anybody could tell me anything about this would be good thanks I will take a picture over the weekend
  5. kam air locker!!!

    We used this type many many year ago and after nearly every trial under the car fixing it the trouble with them is shaft twist - then the sliding dog don't slide and jams some say they have got better now ?
  6. Just thought i'd show you Rizla 2 - with full hydro on rover axles with the LHD swivel and with en24 homemade link arms with balljoints - all sits nice and level and steers okay offroad .

    Could anybody give me a lead where to get 60mm clamps to hold the hydro ram on the axle ?? any help would be real nice thanks
  11. I bought some cheap hoodies from the market thinking they be okay in the workshop - wrong They had 2 little ropes that pulls the hood tight - well while grinding with my 4 1/2 with a grinding disc in it grabbed hold of the dangling rope and rolled itself up and smacked me under the chin nearly knocking me out - and leaving and huge round cut and burn under my chin, if it had been a 1mm cutting disc i think i be dead or have a big hole in my throat. The farmer last week was in A/E nearly cut his thumb off with his 1mm grinder - no guard holding the metal in one hand and grinder in other - he won't do that again
  12. Military Range Rovers.

    Funny enough i just cut up a Range rover lse that was L reg and full armour in white - had a RPI engine with 110 axles and wolf wheels, full weight was just under 3 ton I was told it was used by SAS ? looked the same as any other R/R until you got close there's a black disco in the yard where i bought it - the same full armour
