    Re: td5 oil pressure concern

    5W40 is more than adequate for your temperatures.

    There might be some wear
    Mine also drops below 1 bar for a short while after a long hot trip.

    Re: td5 oil pressure concern

    Which type of sensor do you have?

    The big one is the old type and was more prone to weird readings.

    Defender Re: Shocks and coil springs

    I would keep it OEM, they lasted this long so it must be quality.

    Monroe is apparently OEM for Defender.
    For heavy duty use 90 rear coils in the front.

    I think they are prone to heads cracking.
    It'll still be cheaper than a few installments on a newer vehicle.
    Just keep it in mind.

    Re: Which tyre jack.

    Get a second hand Toyota bottle jack, they are mechanical.

    I had a hydraulic bottle jack but due to vibration and that I stored it on it's side the seal failed.
    More peace of mind.

    Do you see the temperature sensor at the bleeding point?
    The modified brass fitting is from Madman, but I think it can be made easily.

    Check out this post from a few years ago.

    An all in one solution.
    Note that there is no reservoir and it's controlled by a pressure switch.

    Discovery 1 Re: The resurrection and further adventures of Fugard

    This set is a bit cheap in comparison to the usual brands, but as long as you can ensure repeatability of measurements(of the calibration piece) at a given temperature, then it will be perfect.

    Re: 300 Tdi electric vacuum pump retrofit

    The pressure switch will control the pump, so I don't think it's necessary for you to toggle it.
    I also don't think it's necessary for a reservoir as the pump will continuously top up the system....
