    Nothing wrong with that oil.

    Your readings all seem in order, I think.

    Just keep an eye when stopping after long drives.

    Thanks, I am planning on dropping the sump soon to inspect the million dollar TD5 bolt so I'll have a look at the oil pump too while I'm at it.

    Hi all,

    Does anyone perhaps have a drawing of the steering drop arm pulling tool? Thinking of profile cutting, drilling and tapping one at work. Seeing as it is one of the jobs on my to do list and seeing as we'll all be on lock down soon I might as well spend some quality time with my Landy.

    Thanks in advance

    Not to be a party pooper, but that thing doesn't come off easily.

    You only have to replace the insides of the ball joint, if it's that type.
    That is a 10 minute job.

    I once had a 30 ton press in mine and only afer adding heat did it come off.
    And then you run the risk of damaging the steering box seals.
    And that's much more expensive.

    Fair enough, I've heard it's a mission to get the drop arm off but, I thought it might be easier to do the fiddly ball joint job on a bench.

    I use a bottle jack to put enough pressure on the bottom plate to remove the circlip.
    Be careful not to use too much as it might damage the steering box.

    And made a puller to remove the ball joint outer race.

    Ok so the sump was off yesterday and it seems I had a bolt missing, no problem I ordered new ones only catch is that none of them fit. Short ones are way too short and don't even bite, long ones (even the shortest long one) is a good 20-30mm too long. Before everyone asks yes the bolts were taken out and shoved into a cardboard box in order. Anyone know how long the bolt highlighted in the picture needs to be, if it does need a bolt.Name:  IMG_20200705_124625.jpg

    I might be wrong but that doesn't look like a bolt hole.
    It's very close to other stuff.

    The weird thing is that there's threads in it. Like the long bolts go in just not far enough
