More great work, this is going to be a nice one :)

 

The only way to get the onestop out of the front hubs is by dismantling and cleaning. which is a faff if you regularly wade. Damage caused to front hubs by running water contaminated gloop is likely to extend to the CV joints, BUT if used regularly should last  etc etc etc

 

Good balls (snigger) and modern hub seals to prevent leakage of standard fit oil

 

I fit Oneshot to all our Solihull shite.  Just can't get the EP90 to stay in the swivel hubs; even a new ball and seal only seems to keep dry for 12 months or so.

The oneshot grease does actually drain when you get it hot- do it straight after a run and plenty comes out!

I don't do wading though, not in any of them.  In fact I'd rather drive 60 miles to avoid going swimming!

1958 LAND ROVER SERIES 2 - 2 & A QUARTER PETROL BARN FIND 1964 MILES!

 

https://www.ebay.co....f77c3%7Ciid%3A1

1964 miles you say?

 

An incredible 1964 miles on nthe clock - can only assume this is correct,as the speedo hasobviously never been changed,it has the same patina as the other instruments.

 

 

yeah but the numbers are all different colours, like some are sun faded way more than others. Got any history to back up the mileage claim?

 

Although manufactured in 1958 - it was,for some reason,first registered in1978,though on the V5 its taxation class is Historic Vehicle - so Tax and MOT exempt. Also has period correct Registration number. I can only assume it was used on a farm for the previous 20 years - hence the low mileage. 

 

 

 

Yeah Farmers use Traaaaaacturz

 

oh and your idea of "Surprisingly rust free" does not match with mine

 

Verdict =

a. remove speedo and find "oh no! not again :)" written on the back

​b. research history and find it was decommed from armed forced (air Force by the look of it, patches of blue) in 1978

c. thank God it is miles away

oops meant to stick that on the ebay fred

 

Sa TURD ay's shenanigans

 

Youngling Thestags Rugby match at Whitgift was called off due to wet pitch at Whitgift so I boiler suited up and retired to the man cave for the afternoon.

 

using 1-2-1 epoxy paint from Rustbuster

20171111_152028.jpg

 

after mixing thoroughly in the tin, mix one part a to one part b - in this case 180ml of each

 

20171111_152033.jpg

 

part b is very gloopy

20171111_152124.jpg

 

however when the two parts are mixed together it combines quickly and easily. leave it 10 mins

20171111_152338.jpg

 

I then added 10% of the special supplied thinner. i probably didnt need to because

20171111_154743.jpg

 

it went on very thin indeed. stuck like shit to bare steel but didnt like the red paint that I wasnt able to remove. this is on the third coat and 1h after the first. the paint self levels nicely

20171111_171042.jpg

 

after an hour and a half the paint had thickened slightly so one coat was doing the job

20171111_171046.jpg

 

20171111_171050.jpg

 

20171111_181926.jpg

 

axle casing came up beautiful. pockmarks from previous rust were smoothed as the paint levelled.

20171111_181936.jpg

 

diff case needs another coat because I ran out of mix

20171111_181947.jpg

 

took 24h to cure to touch dry, 36h in and there are still bit that are tacky to touch. the guidance is full cure takes 2 weeks at 23 degrees celcius. I expect to be able to start reassembly after a couple of days. should be hammer proof after 2 weeks I guess
