    Thor V8 Misfire

    Think I have tracked the problem down to a ignition lead arcing out. But could be more than 1 due to how badly it runs or possibly a coil pack on the way out. Shame it is so hard to reach the coil packs on a D2 just to swap some lead out. A job for the weekend I think Thanks Jon

    Thor V8 Misfire

    I am opening this to the board as more views in here hopefully. I have a discovery 2 with 4.0 V8 and lpg conversion. Up until now it has run a dream and no problems at all. However it failed to start the other week due to a failed starter motor. Recovery guys came out to my wife. Did the old hit the starter trick and sprayed some brake cleaner in the air intake to get it going as they said it was turning over slowly. On the drive back it all started to go wrong. With lack of power and misfiring and struggling to maintain speed. I dropped it at the garage on my way home as didn't have time to put a starter on it and needed them to do a few jobs for the MOT. 2.5 weeks later,. they still havent got round to it so I have given up and taken the vehicle back. They have: Changed the spark plugs - this improved things slightly Said they put diagnostics on it and nothing is showing up as faulty, they checked MAF etc. Fault is present whether on LPG or Petrol So where shall I start? Coil Packs? It has magnecor leads already on it When cold if you touch the throttle it tries to flood and really struggles. Any help appreciated, I hoped the garage would put it on diagnostics and know where to look but they are hopeless and have to much work on to give it anytime. Thanks Jon

    Yorkshire green lanes

    Thanks for this. We had a great time, nice routes, all well signposted and all people met seemed friendly. All wide open lanes you could take a freelander over

    Disco 2 questions

    Yes it was on standard anti roll bar. It would have been better with the longer drop links. But to be fair it coped really well with diff lock and traction control and just climbed and lifted a wheel instead. Sadly it only lasted a few off road forays before I had to scrap it due to tin worm Jon

    Welding a water pipe

    I have a good condition pipe here you can have for £40, I brought it from a breaker as mine corroded through where the 2 pipes are welded together. it wasn’t too bad a job to swap over, a couple of clips were a pain to get the pliers onto but otherwise ok. let me know if you want it and I can get it package up Thanks
  12. An awesome build and an exceptional attention to detail, I am very jealous that you have had the patience and budget to do the build to such a high standard. only criticism is I don’t think the winch and bumper do it any favours. A low line winch tucked in a discreet bumper would suit it better Jon

    Vehicle transport recommendations

    I put mine on Shipley (google shipley) and put in a description of what you want etc and then companies will quote for the work. You can see their history and reviews and also what they are using etc. Cant remember what it cost but I think it was about £300 to get a defender 90 from exeter to warrington

    Advice required on selling a Series

    A tax exempt project can be worth a bit. I brought mine needing a lot more work for £400 8 years ago and prices have shot up since defender production ended. is it lwb or swb as I may have a friend interested Thanks Jon
  15. Heading over to Harrogate/York way. Are there any must do lanes in the area? I will check trailwise as well , but thought I would check for any local experience on here. Thanks Jon
