Re: So.. who was at coney!!!! (initial report)

That was a fun weekend! Geurney back was uneventful apart from a breaf monsoon (it probubly wasn't that heavy, it wasn't actully raining that hard inside the truck) on the M6 made more exciting when the wiper arm fell off - Luckally the washer jets are on the arms so the pipework stops it getting lo...

Syncro 1, Land-Rover 0

To be honest tyres are what makes the difference here, if your tyres aren't winter tyres (icicle marking) or all weather rated (M+S - most all/mud terain tyres have this or are basicly as good tread wise, though not nesiserally compound wise) then 4WD will just get you better access to more ditches ...

Re: Highest mileage Syncro on this forum?

my white one .... well it doesnt run at all but the last time it moved it had the correct wheel/tyre combo So that'll be well out too then! Think I worked out mine (on the wrong speedo drive gearing) is about 13% over reading on the ODO (which is often quite a different error to the speedo!) but if...

Re: Alternative to CV grease

Coil sprung beam axled Land-Rovers use one shot grease in the front axle, where there is a CV joint but its sealed in the axle caseing, seperate to the diff oil or wheel bearings. Earlyer models had EP90 in the swivel housings but this was always seperate to the diff oil, if it wasn't the seals gone...

Re: Hahahaha... Look at my back wheel!!!

Nice how to!! Is that the van sitting on a hydraulic jack though? :tsk (From experience I can tell you a peugeot 106 drops "feck" quick when a seal goes in a trolly jack, makes you think twice how you get an axle stand under there safely let alone working on the jack!) I once had a GSF bearing that ...

Re: Bet you cant do this ....

I've got it! Lock front and rear (or all 3) diffs but remove the nearside driveshafts. To think that they actually sat down and planned this :shock: To be fair most people who drive cars (or lorries, see Russ Swift's @best truck on two wheels@ Leyland Roadrunner advert) on 2 wheels need to do some ...

Re: Devon Weekend 2011

I should be able to make this one, another first!

And unlike SP, this time I'm not misreading my calender and saying see you at SP and then realising afterwards it was the weekend I was driving back from the Piranees not the weekend after :roll:

Could be my last event under JX power :cry:

Re: ABS

Doesn't Otenger Dave have twin lockers and ABS? I think theres a buzzer fitted to them to remind you if the rear diffs locked when you go over 50km/h - who goes that fast with the locker in? When the rangerover first got ABS I think it only worked on one axle and turned off if you went into low rang...

Re: Temp and Pressure Gauges

Oil presure threads on a diesel is M10x1, common for VWs but not for much else. 1.6 engines tend to only have 1 tapping for a guage on the filter and another on the head, both are used for the dynamic oil presure sensors (usally low on head and high on filter though they are interchangable). There i...
