    Odd noise

    Wheel bearing does this, the noise goes when turning due to reducing the play(on the rolling surface). Sometimes you can cure the noise by adjusting the hub nut to give the correct amount of play for the wheel bearing, however when they start to rumble it is best to replace them. In addition it is best to replace both bearings (inner and outer) on both sides of truck as they would have most likely done the same work
  5. http://forums.lr4x4.com/index.php?showtopic=12075 This might give a few ideas as it also includes one made by OG
  6. checked the other links :devon 4x4, frogs island, Arbil, main importers and seems price is ott. i'm looking for a brush set foe a M26626 motor at a realistic price for what they are. looks cheeper to buy a motor. any pointers welcome.
  7. How annoying ...just gone through two days without broad band (I was 1 of many 1000’s) and no explanation from onetel.....but at least I have it back now. When is the next boxgrove day and do you have a post code for it? never been there what is the site like? is it similar to Slindon? re the fairlead, I was thinking something with a large radius to for the very reasons you mentioned but made from 316 marine grade stainless for longevity. Something with a 30+ mm radius like in this pic (32mm rad) Did you manage to get a float yet? are they all the same size? I dont know much about Su's

  9. tony have you got a pic of it ? and how easy is it to install?
  10. Thanks For the order Simon; you seem to have made good time from your place. Didn’t realise you were going to have a go at fitting them your self. Hat off to you.! Had you said; I have got a walk round set up you could have had as I don’t use it. Four hours; would like to have been there sound like entertainment When are you taking it out for a good try out? Let me know as I would like to see it in use. Are you going to put a winch on it? Cos I know where you can get a real good fairlead for it Lawrence
  11. Well someone has to ask; so I will. Going to a "car boot" sale with a trailer, say with an engine, axles, doors, hubs and various other weighty bits of metal in order to get some extra pocket money. Total weight of your LR + trailer + parts = 3.5t or more. Seems that you (by law) must have a taco. What should the LR community do to stay within the law? if they have to get a taco, where and what are the costs? What is the up keep? What are the insurance implications? What are the MOT implications? For Car booting it may be better to get a Van, OR is it? When dose it cease to be a hobby and become a business? I.E. Trade shows. For me there is no question, but for many others it seems a vital question.
  12. What off roading have you done? Only ask this, as my belt shredded and turned out it was full of impregnated stone/grit flakes that cut into the belt.
  13. I have the X-springs ... am totaly pleased, as i am with the X-brake. Have to say that product and service is second to None.
  14. Qualities we will loose if grown elsewhere Cant make out the year but seems to have bulge on bonnet...... are you suggesting leak by deign? dont know but if you found its location and a high res camara..... send in your shots
  15. The X-Eng ground anchor is very light and easily mounted on the front or roof. Fold up ones tend to weigh a lot more and not as easy to handle.
