    custom dash project

    Good progress! It'll be interesting to see where all the dash parts lie in relation to your new wiper set up. Steve

    Steering box adjustment or UJs & bushes

    Check by removing the uj's and testing for movement, then you'll definitely know if it (the uj) is worn. Also check the drop arm is tight on the output shaft, I've had it before where there's a slight amount of up and down movement on the drop arm. This is eliminated by tightening the output shaft nut up. Steve

    So the rear axle is back on and it now sits back on it's four wheels. Now to address the bent tubes! The passenger side took the brunt, with the drivers side looking a little bent from previous outings and so I will replace both. With all the rivets drilled out. I could then trim the roof to access the tubes to be cut out. I will then decide to patch the holes or trim whats left of the roof back further. I also took the roof scoop off. Next step is a bit of chopping! Steve

    TD5 10p/15p

    Ok, yes you could replace it. So yes you've done a compression test, but I was also referring to a pressure tested the cylinder head i.e. strip cylinder head block up all holes and fill with water on the fuel and coolant side and see if it holds pressure. Then you can see if it has cracked! Steve

    The fuel pressure is different between the two so you would need the correct ECU along with the injector codes. And also the fuel pressure regulator is different too. Have you pressure tested the cylinder head so you know it's definitely cracked and not just the cylinder head moving because of the plastic dowels and/or the head gasket itself failing? The compression test - was it down down the glow plug holes (probably not as there's only 4!) or injector holes? Could be a copper washer at fault? Steve

    Nice home-made 40T forging hydraulic press

    There's something quite satisfying watching the square tube get neatly folded up! Very good Steve

    Is this the one? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WELDER-STAHLWERK-AC-DC-TIG-200-PULSE-a-PLASMA-CUTTER-WELDING-MACHINE-INVERTER/152808973097?epid=1255552468&hash=item23941fe329:g:TwwAAOSw~2VcADoS:rk:10:pf:0 Handy it does plasma cutting too! I have been looking at the R tech tigs like this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TIG-Welder-AC-DC-R-Tech-160-Amp-240v-Free-foot-pedal-worth-142/291261362213?epid=645878346&hash=item43d087b025:g:IM4AAOSwhzRai-EK:rk:22:pf:0 But I'm sure it was only £800 when I last looked, but it does come with a peddle!

    Anyone used a KV6 in a Landy?

    That's one of my favourite build thread, well worth a read! Steve

    It was/is as to make a new rear axle I need to cut all the brackets off and weld on front brackets. A front axle would be too short, but I do have one of these at home too! Steve
  13. I may be swaying towards a longer defender drop arm and a pump tweak. As Bowies says it's a nice and simple solution! Steve

    I did! I wont do it again........that's rolling and forgetting the camera 😂 Right, the rear truck arches have gone in the bin! The rear axle is leaking from multiple places and I think I need some new bushes too, so off it came! Yep, we need new bushes! And also one of the axle holes had ovalised and one of the welds had broken, so I chiseled it off and make a new one. Using a 48mm hole saw in some 3-4mm plate and a 5/8 drill to make a nice tight fitting hole. I pressed in some new bushes and bolted it up and tacked it in place! The diff pan has been previously repaired and I've put some weld on there too, so I thought about fitting a new diff pan, but I've just welded it up again after finding all the cracks and will fit a wrap around diff guard for next year. The diff got resealed and I also fitted a new pinion seal and drive flange too! It's all ready to go back on! The shocks got a clean too. There still perfect, so my mocking up and flexing tests paid off as they have no rubbing marks, the rose joints a still perfect and the mounting tabs are all still intact too! Steve

    You should be able to read the colours off the resistor. Any good electronics place will do them, i.e. RS Steve
