  1. At least by the time the Landcruiser is due for a change you could buy a new defender without the flaming torch and pitchforks being waved for committing vehicular blasphemy😋 I’ll be having a trip to the stealer for a little chat...
  2. The G wagen also evolved from humble beginnings and is now one of Mercs most expensive models...starting price of £95k OTR. If anything it’s the closest in terms of military and utility use within its past.
  3. I think it looks fine, although will be waiting to see one and get a seat in it before placing an order....a 110 with some choice options quickly gets well into D5 HSE territory and at that it will take some convincing to sway SWMBO. 85ecus did make me laugh but surely it’s on par with most new vehicles? Times change as do technologies. My 200 needs 1 power supply to keep it running but would I like the 200 in a new car? Of course not as it’s “of it’s time”, Fords lowest spec eco boost 3 pot has almost the same power. There will always be rose tinted nostalgia over the original defender...most of us on here have comprehensively rebuilt/replaced/restored and upgraded the factory built foibles that Solihull fitted them with and as such have created our own version that we have a worrying mechanical intimacy with so I can see it from both sides. This won’t stop me from buying the new one though (that’s the wife’s job 😋)
  4. I'll echo that. My Clarke has survived abuse and done a lot of welding over the last 18yrs (150 amp model) so don't discount them. I keep threatening to replace it but it still plods away and for a budget/DIY spec machine it can lay down some nice welds.
  5. Absolutely chuffin fantastic! Beautifully done Ross with great detail. I doff my virtual cap, sir
  6. Pin 1Black (earth) pin2 Brake (Green/Purple) pin3 tail light (red/orange RHS)/(red/black LHS)
  7. No there's no requirement to bridge it out. I have full XS td5 looms, including using as much of the td5 engine loom as possible. No inertia switch installed or bridged, on the td5 it feeds the ecu and fuel pump relay...as the tdi uses neither it serves no purpose.
  8. Don't want to state the "bleedin" obvious...but that pic with the ratchet attached shows you have the caliper fitted upside down as I can just see the nipple cover at the bottom of the pic. The change in orientation may give you the very minimal clearance that there appears to be on Westerns pics.
  9. As yet no one seems to produce an inner repair section for the vent and screen mount area. You get extended footwell sections that take you up to just under the fold, above that it's good old fashioned cardboard and sheet metal, combined with copious quantities of tea and swearing...with a bit of welding and grinding too. Seen worse, repaired worse...as have many on here.
  10. page 10, about half way down and you'll see the 11L stripped of its timing case and a list of the bits needing swapped.
  11. The 3 wire one is for your blower/heater
  12. The orange/green orange purple plug is for the passive coil
