    Interesting industrial drill

    We have a drill press like that at work. Very useful! Steve
  2. I'm one step closer now! With the cable plugged in and the ignition on I was able to see it in the device manager and reinstall the driver and now it displays as comm port 5and I'm seeing live data for temps etc, so will have a play with the engine running! Thanks for the help Jon and Ed! Steve
  3. Oh yes, Windows xp! Steve
  4. I have an ftdi thing on my ecu, but am struggling to get my laptop and ecu to communicate! I'm a bit out of my depth and don't know enough about all the setting you may need. Does it need a driver? I could try reinstalling it? I have tried to find com port locations, but the two I have found both say com1 and com2, not usb..... Some guidance needed please! Steve

    High SWR reading on CB

    Oh yes, don't worry I have removed the old antenna! And Yes I understood about doing the checks on each setting on the SWR, I just didn't realise that it had polarity going through it! Steve

    High SWR reading on CB

    So.... I have a confession! I plugged in the SWR the wrong way round. I did not realise that a) that it had polarity and b) it has Ant and Tx on the front corresponding to the rear connections! Anyway, I fitted a new antenna mount and even fitted a new antenna too as I had a spare! And I trimmed 35mm off of it to reduce the SWR to 1.5 - 2.5. So we'll see how it performs this weekend! Oh and out of interesting I tested the existing antenna and mount the SWR was over 3! Thanks for all the help. Steve P.S. Sorry, the forum moved the picture round like that - It wasn't me!

    custom dash project

    I left the back on and opened out the top (to get the arch) so that the spindle wouldn't fall out! I've been looking at the newer type too as they have a nut on the end to secure the wiper arm too thus deleting the horrible little splined adapter that causes all the play! I was half tempted to put a wanted add for knackered later style wiper spindles as we will only chop them up! Good progress! Steve

    Well this post does mention that the bracket does cover different engines. So it looks like ERC8854 could be what you need. This looks the same, but then this might fit but is a different part number?! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Land-Rover-ERC6974-Power-Steering-Mounting-Bracket-2-5-2-5-Turbo-Diesel-200tdi/192694898392?hash=item2cdd82ced8:g:mS0AAOSw~2hbsywM:rk:23:pf:0 Steve

    Have you googled it? https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=defender+2.5+na+power+steering+bracket&rlz=1C1GCEU_enGB819GB819&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjqg_DGxbreAhVJQ8AKHQeADZoQ_AUIDigB&biw=1680&bih=939 And and LR4x4 post here: Steve
  12. Oh and do shout if you can't see the scores! Steve
  13. Another great event held at Plurenden farm over the weekend. I was nice and dry and warm(ish) in the timing caravan. The weather changed through out the day from dry and sunny to cold and wet! So did the course making it very slippery in places! Scores for the last round: Overall scores for the series: A great year, some great tracks and now its tinkering time for next year! Steve

    High SWR reading on CB

    It's a side mount and I have put rubber insulation around the roll cage tube that sits in front of it. When I unplug the PL259 from the cb radio I don't get continuity. Steve
