    Re: Rivet Counters

    Not too familiar with the technicalities of the series.

    My MIL's vehicle license expired last month.

    She got a R600 fine this morning.

    Isn't there a extension for renewal?

    Re: 300 Tdi oil cooler - necessity of?

    Try to keep the oil cooler, it will extend the life of your oil.

    Remember the turbo is cooled by oil and that sits at an average of 500C.

    Re: Help need to immobilise series 3

    In the UK they push it onto a rollerback and drive away.

    You need to make it so that they can't push it out of the garage.

    Removing the wheels isn't such a bad idea.

    Re: Roofrack mounts for 110 Defender

    The legs from the Frontrunner rack is 75mm wide with 2 holes on the centre line.

    So you will have to drill new holes, if it's wide enough.

    Re: Td5 Warped Exhaust Manifold

    That technique really works, one of my colleagues uses it to remove broken off studs from outboard motors.

    Takes some time and you will probably do it more than once per bolt.
    But it works.

    It's got an electric pump, so that should eliminate air.

    On 300Tdi it will be the spill return that's leaking.

    My option, if I remember correctly it's called sawtooth, will have the required rating because of military use.

    Those are the only alloy wheels I've ever liked on a Defender.
