  1. I have had mine re-cored with a pressure washable core which the place (Kempston Radiators in Bedford) keep for JCBs and similar seemed like a good idea especially when you go wading and your radiator clogs up with sand 😠. they did the calculations to make sure the cooling would be sufficient
  2. Premier Galvanizing in Corby, they operate a collect and deliver service which happens to cover Bedfordshire. I will know how good it all was when I get things back next wednesday Wedge Sawtry told me that their group policy (set 2 to 3 years ago) is that the only land rover parts they will do now is a chassis. Maybe Haverhill is a bit more flexible won't know the price until they have done the job as I have quite a number of other bits to get done as well but they have a minimum price of £75 and the collect/delivery is £45, both plus vat back 4 years ago wedge sawtry did a bulkhead for a family member and their minimum price then was £60 plus vat so not too dissimilar I think zinc spray would be a nicer finish but I am intending to leave it unpainted and I believe the dip process will be thicker and therefore last better
  3. Found somebody who will collect, galvanise and return Happy again now 😃
  4. Hi, got my pile of blasted and repaired bits repaired and ready and rang the Wedge place at Sawtry to arrange galvanising and got "Sorry we don't do anything other than chassis these days" Has anyone had a bulkhead galvanised recently and if so where? Ideally close to Bedfordshire/Hertfordshire but when you have spent loads of time blasting and repairing things I might be more willing to travel now 😒

    Bulkhead woes

    good luck with that, I have just "rescued" a foot from a corroded pillar and there are quite a few spot welds to remove, luckily for me I need to replace the pillar anyway have you had a good look at the rest of the chassis? that is fairly heavy corrosion and you may be close to being better off replacing the chassis
  6. we got a pair from headedwindscreen for my sons series and were happy with the ease of fitting and the quality of the glass he would have liked them to work a bit faster and sometime I will run an additional heavy cable to reduce the volt drop a bit as I think it was 11.5 at the screen contacts even with the engine running They are heated windscreens and they work, if I had more early starts I would be happy to buy a defender one from them Previously my son bought a Pilkington screen for his defender from ebay which we fitted ourselves and I wired for him. Generally this worked well but we found there a couple of strands that didn't work and they were right in the middle on the drivers side Hope that helps
  7. @teabag - spot on, well done now I know what it is I found an old thread on here where the identical part had been discussed in 2007! https://forums.lr4x4.com/topic/14516-can-you-identify-this-component/ shame that after all this it appears to be faulty but it exercised the grey cells for a while and at least I know this won't be why the engine doesn't restart when I eventually get around to connecting it to fuel and volts 😁 thank you to everyone who participated
  8. @teabag, looks similar but this is from a classic rather than a P38 so not a BTR9733 If it is a switch to turn the heated washers on then it must be broken because it was 0.3 ohms after being in the freezer for 24 hours and 0.3 ohms several hours later when it had got up to 26.6 room temperature
  9. Just found one for sale on ebay as a Range Rover Classic RRC Heated Windshield Washer Temperature Sensor Switch but I didn't have a heated windscreen and the sensor isn't anywhere near the washer maybe it is supposed to switch the squirter off if the temperature goes below freezing just chucked it in the freezer, probably find it in my dinner next week 😂
  10. it must be oem as the wires from the plug go into the main car loom in the engine bay, not easy to trace once it is in there. I may find where that colour comes out i'm sure I will find out what it is for when I cannot get something working on the engine 😀
  11. I forgot to say this was a 92 Vogue EFI with AC and this didn't have any form of temperature readout on the dash it looks like it could be a temp sender but it only measures 0.3 to 0.4 ohms at room temperature. it does measure the same in both polarities and I guess it may change with temperature I am not expecting it to have any value but was more curious to find out what it might be I spent a long time looking for online evidence of what it might be and even spent time looking at wiring diagrams to see if I could spot Red/Slate wire colours
  12. Dismantling an RRC and have a small sensor that came off the drivers side headlight panel and no idea what it is for It is connected on two wire, one of which is Red/Slate, anyone recognise it?
  13. That makes sense. the bushes are fitted but are now just one solid lump. I think the bolt should clamp on the inner one which should then turn in the outer. I couldn't see any signs on the bolt that the arm was rotating on it so couldn't make sense of it I will have a go at removing the inner bush and either clean it or get a new one Thank you for the diagram it was just what I had been looking for but couldn't find
  14. Simple thing but I am hoping someone can help. Several years ago my son took the arm off that links the handbrake cable to the bit that sticks out of the handbrake drum because he thought it would do for something else. I have the arm and want to reuse the gearbox and borg warner but cannot see what the correct way to fit the arm back to the transfer box is. Sounds stupid as the arm has two clevis pins and currently a nut and bolt through the bottom. It is totally obvious where it goes as there is a blind hole on the borg warner where the bolt fits but I cannot see how it should be done up and still allow the arm to move freely The chances are the nut and bolt in the arm aren't the originals but if anyone has the borg warner box fitted I would appreciate a picture of the arm fitted so I can see what Rover intended rather than bodging something Thank you in advance
  15. yes, I have now ordered complete ABS rebuild kits I thought the pictures I found looked like the pin was longer and he told me FRC3511 is 65mm tall whereas the ABS one is 44.75mm including the top flange I didn't ask for measurements on 571756 as I am sure that it isn't the correct diameters just from comparing pictures as the shelf hallway down the pin looks a fair bit wider to me than the ABS pin I have Thanks again for your comments
