  1. Got it its a NEEB. North Eastern Electricity Board. The penny dropped when the owner said he bought it off a Geordie that had had it for years. Now here's his decision, does he do it yellow because he likes it or go back to the original colour? (He would of stayed yellow if the inside had remained in presentable condition but after the paint peeled its having a full hit inside and out and under the rear arches, wings and doors are off so all is easy to do and get at for a full colour change.)
  2. Definitely orange, like the G4 orange. everywhere, not on nut and bolt heads but everywhere under the underseal that's been on their for years.... sanded orange back in areas like the roof and its orange then back to alloy.... any steel areas though seemed to have a black etch type primer under the orange. Ralph those sweb look more red to me. I did look at some pics of them though and noticed a lot of roof racks, this thing has had something bolted to the front 4 inches of the gutter (its bent the gutter) and there are signs of drill holes in the roof close to the gutter half way t
  3. We tried the wire wheel but its really disappeared. ironically the batch number is stamped very deep, if only they;d done that with the vin. thanks Wayne
  4. Thanks guys. Probably right Ralph as its pretty good for a 1986 year. One and two.... maybe correct but this dosent have a dash between the first 2 numbers and the second 2 hes chosen to have it ground off and the front dumb iron restamped so all will match and stop future questions. Thanks again Wayne,
  5. Hi guys here's a weird one, we have got a 1986 110 van in for chassis and bulkhead work. i always check the vin numbers in this instance so if i need to work/weld that area the customer can make a choice on whether to delete it or restamp it. Anyway, the usual area on the front RHS has no number, but slightly pitted so it could just of rusted away however as weve been working around it on the upper edge of the front RHS radius arm mount (under the drivers floor plate) it is stamped with 'BATCH No 9214'. I've never seen this in all the years I've worked on them and wondered what on earth it mea
  6. Just a quick update gaskets done and its now running alot better in the donor however the brake pipe burst so cant test it on the lane yet, i have also fitted a new viscous fan instead of the knackered electric one, also have a gas analyser on order that will aid me setting the mixtures. i now have a week off but no doubt have a list of diy lined up by the better half. thanks again wayne
  7. Not looked into 'lifting plunger' etc. Take into consideration most things my father and i have owned have been diesels. The v8 and twin carbs are completely new to me. I will do a forum search once back together. Thank you again guys. Wayne.
  8. Sorry about pic quality. Done with phone. I will be doing gaskets over next few days. Thanks again.
  9. Also Guys i wondered, because I have been tweaking the mixture over and over at small increments, would you suggest when ive finally got a setup that works i turn the screws back to the bridge height and back out equally just to make sure ive not gone an 1/8 further round with one of the screws? thanks
  10. Rapid response thanks guys!!! Lo-Fi Ive got no carb cleaner but have got brake cleaner....a little sniff of this drops the revs so i sprayed a little around the pipes and gaskets and the only area it has a difference in revs is at the inlet manifold to head on the LH rear port. So I will get her stripped and new inlet gasket put in place, do you also recommend a smear of silicone on the gasket too? Bowie both of the engine breathers are connected as per standard to the rockers with flame traps (i think thats what they are called) Bowie i will get a pic later but dont judge
  11. LR101GS probably a late reply, i did realise i had got the bits on a gearbox in the shad as it wasnt the special larger drum after all. thanks for the offer, im sure if you post the bits in the for sale section then you will get takers. thanks wayne
  12. First of all guys ive looked through the forum and cant find a definite answer... We have a 1984 110 v8 low compression engine that ran rough so we checked and fitted the following.... 1. Checked compression, all around 110psi. 2. fitted new plugs, leads, coil, electronic ignition, oil and filter. we then noticed the carbs would not balance no matter what but a previous owner had bodged the linkage and cable and fuel was passing the needle even when it wasnt running. (carbs were incorrect anyhow hif6s) 3. So we purchased a set of SU Hif44s from burlen. We have set
  13. here are some pics of it side by side with my original it did turn up in the brown box with the landrover sticker on it... …. ive also added a pic of the britpart one that's currently available.... is this military genuine landrover item therefore a britpart item supplied to the military?
  14. Don't quote me on this fully but im sure my dim dip relay on my 94 300 tdi is behind the clocks. no doubt ill be corrected.
