Having now fitted the 200+ lbs of Devon bumper and 8274, I've only got about 3 inches of compression travel on the front suspension ie. between the axle and the bump stop. I've got around 5 inches at the back. The springs are medium weight +2's and the dampers +5's. I've also got extended turrets (+...
Just watching a Defender 200Tdi & auto box on t'Ebay at the minute:

Would this be a straight swap?
All I'm looking at moving to an auto box for Kermit. Couple of questions: 1. If I get an auto box from a defender (as opposed to a disco), is it a straight swap and can I still use the original transfer box? 2. Do I need to do any modifications to the bulkhead/tunnel to accomodate the auto set up? I...
One of the jobs I didn't get round to sorting before the first trial was the fuel gauge. It sits firmly on empty, doesn't move at all when the ignition comes on and doesn't even move when I connect the two 'feed' wires together on the top of the tank (there's an earth wire to the tank also). Any tho...
Got the rear diff swapped today, nice & quiet now (well as quiet as a land rover gets!). Also got it taxed (Â£215) - it's still down as a 2.25 petrol on the V5 but I'm not sure whether it would be any more for a 2.5 Tdi. I'm going to get the V5 changed anyway so I guess I'll see next year. Insur...
I guess you could be right. I'll get it sorted temporarily by tacking a nut/small block on to the hub just for the test but then probably knock it off again before Sunday.
You'll have to point me to your tame MOT guy next year !
:( :( :( :( :( Not good, few bits of stuff to fix: Warning lights for fog lamp and hazard lights; Problem with the headlights, might be bulbs in upside down; Bonnet retaining device ineffective (well it would be 'cos I took it off - didn't know you needed it with the bonnet pins); Main problem is th...
Got back from t'Egypt at about 3:30 this morning and had Kermit down at the local MOT garage for 8:00. Pacing up and down like an expectant father now waiting for news !!!!! On the run down to the garage I've (unfortunately) confirmed that the rear diff is shot - it's fine under load but as soon as ...
Couldn't get it booked in before this Saturday and we're off to t'Egypt on Sunday for a week so it's booked in for the day we get back - 4th April. Bit closer to the date of the trial than I'd have liked but still got a bit of 'float' just in case.
