  1. Managed to finally drain the tank without risking the actual drain plug as I fear that may have caused further problems. I’m just waiting now on JB steel putty to arrive. If it does a temp job for now great..... then new tank ordered as soon as I’m happy I’ve exhausted all options on one. 😊👍
  2. I was planning on giving it the extra, extra coats of protection but I wanted to know if there was a supplier that produced a better quality tank?
  3. I hope you’re all doing well. I’ve not been on in a while due to one thing or another. So I’m looking to replace my 1987 110’s fuel tank. Doing some rust proofing and the tank popped a pin hole leak. For the time being I’ll try metal putty to repair as a temp but I’m looking to order a new tank, gaskets and sender. So I want a decent tank..... what’s your recommendations? 😎
  4. So wee update, passed MOT with no advisories 😎 steering box was fitted today with no major woes. Was a bit tight as the first test drive was done. So gave it a bleed, after a shower of ATF scooshed out, test drive number two was good. No leaks so far 😀🙏 Fitted as a whole unit.
  5. Thanks guys, weekend job sorted then. It’s a 1987 2.5na 🙂👍 It’s also MOT day today 🙏
  6. As it says guys, mines has a slight leak at the drop arm. Another good deal by a forum member got me a hopefully good replacement. It’s all in one piece. So do I need to remove the arm or can I fit it as one whole unit?
  7. Thanks Ralph just wanted to double check. I’ve got it in my head to use same oil as what your joining together. 😎👍
  8. Got the part number off the actual shaft but it may be superceded by now.
  9. Afternoon, I’m in the middle (nearly finished hopefully) of repacking seals, O ring and gaskets on my LT230 transfer box. About ready to put it back in and wondered, do you put grease on the gearbox shaft (FRC5305) into the transfer box or does the EP90 gear oil do the job?
  10. Thanks Ralph, hope yer ok down there 👍
  11. Hi guys, looking to make sure I order the correct seal. I’m taking off the transfer box from the gearbox and I suspect the seal on the LT77 needs replacing. Part number for genuine would be much appreciated. 👍
  12. Thanks for the responses guys. I may try the seal to start with to see the outcome. If it goes again, then I’ll look into a proper refurbished box. It’s bone dry everywhere else and has been good in the years I’ve had the truck. Don't suppose there’s a good write up in the tech archives?
  13. I’ll do a bit more research, it’s only a slight weep right now. Am I correct in thinking it’s an O ring failure?
  14. Hi guys, just returned from my second camp to find the steering box is weeping at the bottom seal. What’s your thoughts? Easy enough to repair the seal or better to go for a good known box Replacement? 👍
