  1. stick a bit of dielectric grease in the connectors. cheap and stops water ingress and more importantly keeps corrosion at bay.
  2. Im not a million miles away and am there fairly often...
  3. have you got a press? if you can make a former the right shape (hardwood?) you could then reinforce this with a heavy metal plate on the outside edges of the former and then put the material to be worked in the former, the former in the press and away you go...
  4. mine is 2.6 internally... it was a pita with my lifted and caged discovery. if you can id go high enough to put a 2 post lift in. theyre not expensive to buy these days and are so useful...
  5. no need to wait for it to do it again, if its any of the above, wiggling will cause it, which will help you find it.
  6. damaged (internally broken) wire, bad/dirty/loose battery clamp or bad earth. turn the ignition on and start wiggling things.
  7. have you,driven one? there is a reason they where what car tow car of the year for the entire period of the production of the mk1 as for aftersales, i have had 2 warrenty repairs on mine in the last year with no quibbles. now that is not particulary impressive until i tel you its done 190000 miles and is 11 years old. its comfortable, reliable, well supported, well built and absolutly perfect for towing a ifor 510 with two horses and all their tack.
  8. look at the kia sorento (mk1) ive got one and its perfect for what you need.
  9. oops double post, my bad, could someone delete it? ta.
  10. what does everyone think of the new hilux? i test drove a invincible-x crewcab and fell a bit in love with it, its a very nice place to be and pulls like a train. some of the toys are a bit annoying (lane departure warning for example, and i found the traction control a bit too keen) but they can be turned off. the only problem i have with it is the £35k pricetag.....

  12. i suspect using the donate button at the top of the forum would work...
  13. whats that parked behind it in the 1st pic? (and no, i dont mean the quad bike!)
  14. i would very much doubt it.
