  1. The AA have now got the Freelander and my basic property cover, Defender is going to Flux. I'm still looking at tool/equipment insurance. It certainly wont be NFU. Always dealt with the local office at Stagsden, 15 min's from work. I have no idea why the premiums have suddenly jumped.
  2. NFU have just increased the premiums on all my policies for no apparent reason, I was a loyal customer for 25 years. I've told them to do one and saved nearly £1000.
  3. An old thread indeed, one I started nearly seven years ago! I'm pleased to say the Britpart cellulars are still working well. Cosmetically there's a few rust spots from stone chips, but not covered in corrosion like the Terrafirma's I'd seen. Performance wise, perhaps they could be marginally stiffer when loaded but that's a minor criticism. Excellent value for money.
  4. Keep the 110... Get rid of the wife!
  5. I went, and very good it was too, chatting to lots of very interesting people. Still more a gathering than a show.
  6. Mo, I have a brand new EFI filter here (assuming I can find it) that you can have for free. I'll have a look tomorrow and pm you if you're interested.
  7. Do this, but once everything is clean and dried, give it a good dusting in talcum powder before bolting it up. When you drop it apart again the source of the oil should be easy to track in the powder.
  8. We use Caltech, calteccalibration.co.uk for all our tools. The engineer turns up in a van and does everything from torque wrenches to tyre gauges, takes him a good few hours. I have 3 Britool's and one Snap-on torque wrench, all over 30 years old, none have ever had more than very minimal correction and they're used every day. Tbh it's not worth the cost unless you use it daily in a professional capacity.
  9. You can get spacers to move the head unit further out. I think Mud uk used to do them. Just google "single din spacer".
  10. The old MOT cert' is not invalidated, nothing has changed. The press keep getting this wrong. Having an MOT cert' does not exempt you from prosecution for a defect, it never has. If you drive after a failure, or at any time with a defect and you still have valid MOT, the offence is related to the defect and that alone. Drive with a defect or not, with an expired MOT and the offence is no valid MOT plus whatever if any defect. They are two separate offences.
  11. Indeed, most things are possible, it's the cost factor. Good lad is Barry, your other head's in good hands.
  12. It doesn't look good. Get it over to T&L Engineering in Elstow (01234 352 418) they can test and possibly repair. It's who we use for machining work, highly recommended.
  13. Is there enough room in the plastic end cap to just use a spacer to take up the distance between the hub and circlip? IIRC the Britpart halfshafts aren't bad. wouldn't trust that one though, once there's a twist, it ain't getting any better.
