3 Cheers for Devon4x4

As said in the title thanks to Devon 4x4 I have Lucys P38a back in time for our annual assault on the BBC Festive Good Food Show in London. With a week to go the damn clutch AND gear linkage decided to let go, I just didn't have time to do it, everyone else who would usually help me out was busy so the RAC (bless them) took it the 25miles south to Simon and Co

I phoned them on Friday and explained the predicament and they had it in on Monday, got it back yesterday. Top work chaps.

I had a chance to look at Simons new 90 yesterday, what a splendid bit of kit that is! Really really neat rear winch crossmember, if you want a rear winch on your 90 that has to be the way forward.

Will :)

Building comp cars and cars for myself....

I get to see alot of vehicles and a lot of mods...

But I have got to say this...

Simons car is stunning,

A real credit and has taken vehicle builds to new level.

It i think can be said to be the bench mark for which to aim.

Oh, it didn't go bad either... ;)

Top marks

B**tard :lol::rolleyes:

Jim :)

Ps: Hope it ain't to good this weekend!

The snorkel arrangement looks odd IMHO though haven't spoken to Simon to see why he has routed t through the cab then out the back load area.

possibly due to the breathing requirements of the TD5?

JJ keally came up with this idea first.

The reasons are quite simple. The TD5 requires a lot of air, particuaarlly when tuned.

Thsi means a 3 inch snorkel (or larger). This is a large lump of kit and is difficult to place in the usual way (Up the side of the cage) because ti restricts vision is easy to knock of etc....

So Simon and JJ and have gone through the cab.

This also means that deeper water can under taken with less risk of water ingestion.

So all very simple really.

There is somewhere a calculation that rally teams use to work out snorkel diameters, againist hieght of intake, lenght of snorkel and size of engine verus air required.

But common sense is usally good enough ;)

Right, must dash am fitting a through cab snorkel to a Td5 Defender.......Customers :)

Jim :)

Ps: If ever in doubt, use bigger tube ;)
