    A little bit in from the Indian Ocean but not as far South as Boggie.
  1. Anyone know the whereabouts of Frank Elson these days? I had heard he was on the sick list a while back but can't track him down with any certainty, just a lot of maybes. Thanks
  2. It should be easy to determine if you blow though the 3 branches. Probably the common branch won't blow back but will blow forward. Simples.
  3. When you refit them, wipe a smear of light grease over each pin & next time they will come off easy. They will also refit easily this time around as well.
  4. I trust you greased it after you dismounted.
  5. Stu, I'm not sure MS Paint can give you sizeable, neat arrows. Maybe it can but I've never found them. I know PhotoShop can & I think it's what your presentation needs to do it the justice it deserves.
  6. Yes, very good post. I wish I'd had it a few years ago. The only thing I will suggest is some red arrows highlighting certain screws, fasteners etc that you mention. Otherwise, 12/10.
  7. So long as you can get some wheel slip (shouldn't be hard ) you should be ok otherwise you can get windup which can bugger up the drive train. Slippage allows the train to stay free.
  8. G'day Todd, G'day Dave. Is that switch one of those that screws in? Could it have unscrewed a tad?
  9. Are you sure that isn't the Radio Security Code? I wanted a spare & the local Locksmith cut one for me no dramas.
  10. A rusty 6' x 4' sheet of corrugated iron + 50 Tek screws should just about do it then.
  11. Which ever LR Designer that decided a "Sunroof" was essential on a vehicle in one of the wettest countries in the world that reputedly hardly sees any sun, needs a half shaft inserted up where it hurts most.
  12. Inspect Lamp connections for burning as well as all lamp earth points.
  13. Idle air control valve on the rear of the OS engine bank is a favourite. Remove, clean with carby cleaner, oil spindle & reset distance. Also check that it's plate is tight & sealed (3 screws) Electronic contact cleaner jetted into the AFM Bypass canal to clean the hotwire is another favourite. (why LR did not select a self cleaning hot wire model is beyond me. Some manufacturers do use those. A higher electric current flows through it at switch off of ignition & supposedly burns off any airborne carp) One suspect I found recently ( can't prove it yet) was the cleaning of the hard to access 3 pin plug under the throttle body to the Throttle Potentiometer. It had never been touched since vehicle assy in '95 & I suspect needed the pins & plug hitting with Electronic Contact Cleaner. Seems ok now anyway.
