  1. It's not that important, just setting it to 30 and I am sure it will be fine.
  2. Controller with is set to 0 at the moment, so not doing anything. The help icons do give you some guidance, I forget exactly what the steps are.
  3. To be honest, I wouldn't mess up a nice 109, especially a sentimental one, for the sake of what will likely be a difficult project with a terrible outcome. Restore the 109, and use it as a second car
  4. Probably the right thing to do, it could be a no-cost job, and you would know the seats and guides are OK.
  5. But we have a huge car industry over here, exporting all over the world. If it was impossible to make it for a low enough figure, then all the other car plants would have shipped out. As it happens, even after Brexit, they are staying.
  6. And then there is .... https://www.motorbiscuit.com/worlds-most-badass-rv-the-mercedes-benz-zetros-2733-a-6x6/ Bit big maybe?
  7. Right-click are pretty reasonable stuff, used them on a few cars and still working.
  8. Used one of these for years, works OK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Clarke-CHT462-Valve-Spring-Compressor/dp/B004W62AJ2?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_omg_hd_bw_b5bbSQx&pf_rd_r=PGCZ15FG2BCP158F16R0&pf_rd_p=d94f35ca-6cf8-519c-8016-21b42de74a08&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=5136316031 Sometimes the spring's length means you have to wind it in a little after clamping, but mostly fine.
  9. An engine flush may well help, buy the gallon of engine flush type oil, it is far better than the additive bottles, run it and change and see what happens. Otherwise it is fairly simple, cams out, replace tappet, new timing belt, which you probably want to do anyways....
  10. Oil ways from block to head look extremely gungy/blocked, would fit with the dry rocker gear?
  11. And a defender body is only a box, so how hard can it be?
  12. Definitely more of a 'truck' though.
  13. Fine here, maybe just a broken advert at the top.
  14. Yes, natural territory, natural driver too. Was heading into 50mph works, and 10ft from the car in front.
  15. Toyota, or the Iveco Daily 4x4, just because I think they look cool: http://pickupand4x4.co.uk/iveco-daily-4x4-review/
  16. The full Marty McFly pickup treatment.
  17. I saw one! In its natural territory -100mph outside lane of the M5 this evening. Thoughts -I couldn't see the front for long so mostly from behind: Centre spare wheel looks really odd for some reason, perhaps it is because it is so wide? The 'shoulder' is too wide, it makes the top of the cabin look like it is really narrow -especially compared to the D3/4 Do you really need 9 brake lights? Front end looks really, really busy. Ground clearance in road going mode is terrible at the wishbones, they seem to point upwards toward the hub, though perhaps it was in super low mode as it was at high speed cruise? If I remember anything else, will post back.
  18. A bit if wire wool stuffed into the breather pipe pre-breather pot could well work? Was sometimes all they had on older cars.
