  1. Webasto fuel pick up advice

    If it is a TD5 there is a blanked connection on top of the fuel pump for this. cut the top off and shove your fuel line into the tank.
  2. Carb solenoid wiring

    I know very little about Carbs. I learned enough about the Carb i had at the time, nine years ago! I have forgotten it all since then, confirmed by me reading the above. I went from a very basic understanding of how a carb works to knowing all of the functions of the carb i had at the time, there is a lot of information out there incl. some very good books. Maybe i could sell you a book?
  3. TD5 Wierdness

    Hi everyone, i experienced a strange issue with my 05 Defender TD5 yesterday. I can not get fault codes read until later in the week so just wondering if the collective has any experience of the following. Drove for about an hour and parked up for an hour, truck started fine and was running as good as ever, parked up again after 30 min for about another hour and then on starting up again, during tickover the engine stutters and then surges, engine light comes on, glow plug light comes on and temp gauge crashes to zero! all this happens within a second then normal tickover and then another blip and so on. It cleared when i revved it and then drove home as normal. When the temp gauge falls it does not fall slowly like when the ignition is turned off, it goes back very quickly. I am thinking bad earth somewhere or chaffed wiring maybe, anyone had similar?

    Try adding an older relative, with no recent claims, as a named driver. See what happens.
  5. The "Pass the Bucket" 4x4 For Sale on Ebay Thread

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Brake-Disc-paint-/122408541556?clk_rvr_id=1187422930204&utm_content=buffer5a321&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer&rmvSB=true&clk_rvr_id=1187750309540&rmvSB=true Not the usual ebay item for this thread but I thought it was worth sharing.

    Project? What are you going to do with it?
  7. Britpart - The good and the bad

    Another vote for the waterproof seat covers, great fit.
  8. LED side/brake/indicator lights

    No, that is what I have done in the past but I am replacing them with LED spares. I have two vehicles and I know I will need one sometime so not a big deal regards expense Vs convenience.
  9. LED side/brake/indicator lights

    I have a full set of RDX lights on both the 90 and 110. Bolt on bits ebay shop. Carrying "spare bulbs" when travelling abroad becomes expensive as you have to have a complete unit for each position, side, stop/tail, indicator. One of the best modifications for more than one reason, not least, instant brake lights!
  10. Defender 110 Pop top

    We met a French couple on holiday this year. They have it kitted out for camping and simply remove the boxes and refit second row seats for family use. 110 Station wagon...poor phone pics but you get the idea.
  11. Best Engine by LR

    200 Tdi is the best engine when i`m in the 90 and the TD5 is the best engine when i`m in the barge .I could not choose between them, love them both for what they are.
  12. IBS Battery Monitor light puzzle

    You are welcome. Is there info on your solar set up in your build thread? if not could you p.m. me some details? Many thanks. John
  13. IBS Battery Monitor light puzzle

    With little or no load your battery voltage may be staying high after a healthy day long charge. To prove it, just turn lights/glow plugs on next time it happens. Reading your post again, if my theory was correct your batteries would remain connected! An adult will be along shortly.
