  1. If you watch Binky, they went for crimp. Having done a fair bit of wiring in the past year, I'm inclined to agree that a good quality crimp has the edge.
  2. Any more updates on this Daan? I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
  3. This is an odd thing. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Land-Rover-restoration-project-spares-repairs-/164562935576 Clearly not 88" or 109". What looks like an old 4 speed RR gearstick, and I'm pretty sure I can see a leaf spring up front in the last pic.
  4. Ross, have a look back through my project thread, I did quite a bit of work on the rear tub. PU adhesive and rivets worked for me.
  5. You big Jessie. They're not that bad. If I can manage it with office muscles I'm fairly sure you manual labour types should be ok. Far easier that stripping the whole lot down piece by piece. Plus it only needs to slide out a few inches just to clear the diff.
  6. If I were you I'd break the melted bit open, just to find out what size fuse it has it in, then snip it off and fit a new fuse holder and fuse with some freshly crimped terminals. It looks like you should just have enough wire there.
  7. If you google JIUNN UEI (https://www.google.com/search?q=jiunn+uei) it brings up some fuse holders that look similar. It could be as simple as a corroded connection that's generating the heat. Does it open up like the ones shown in google images?
  8. My detail sander stopped working. It does this when powered on. I've checked the brushes, they are fine. Is it scrap?
  9. Engines are pretty much identical. Discovery had a higher output alternator, but that's no bad thing. Also, the defender has a bracket for the air filter housing that is held on by 2 of the head bolts, discovery didn't, so you might need to take them out to swap it on. Some later auto discovery's had an electronic injection pump vs the cable type.
  10. If it bothers you that much fit some packers under the spring seats on one side.
  11. Just to close this off, it was the switch at fault. I fitted a new Lucas one and the problem is solved.
  12. Does anybody know if the 200tdi and 300tdi wiper switches are the same switch, just with a different plug on the wires? They look the same, and have the same functionality. PRC7370 and AMR6106
  13. Mine is a 110 tub shortened to fit a 100" wheelbase. No reason why you couldn't make it fit a 90 instead. Take the outer wing skins off and move them forward the required amount, then lop a huge chunk off the back.
