  1. I’m sure you’ve done the right thing there.
  2. Well it is nearly 30 years old and has done over 200k miles. It does get worked hard as well. It seems to just be poor earths as the relays for wipers, indicators and lights seemed to all want to work together, suggesting they’re back feeding.
  3. The Defender managed to eject the ignition switch from the back of the steering lock so I thought it might be a good idea to trace a small intermittent electrical fault at the same time. Now I’m not so sure it was such a good idea.
  4. Is that patchwork effect a series of plates over existing metal or cut out and replacement?
  5. Good news on several levels. Nothing beats a bit of Bolly. sadly not clever enough to edit photos
  6. Or may be a self help group . Autoshite Anonymous.
  7. From hazy memories of my Scimitar with the same engine, if they didn’t come as standard with a phenolic block then they were often substituted, as it got bloody hot in the cramped engine bay surrounded by fibreglass bodywork.
  8. I’m sure it’s a PITA for you, but I’m certain you’ll fix it. It does make very interesting reading for us though.
  9. How does the tyre plug work? What, if anything holds it in place. I’ve seen ones that look like mushrooms that are pulled through from the inside and the head is stuck to the carcass, but nothing like this.
  10. I wonder if he was always wandering off and getting lost as a child?
  11. Been modifying cylinder heads to take different fixing brackets and then skimming to raise the compression ratio. Haven’t really got a clue what I’m doing but it will be fun finding out
  12. Yes, could be, but equally hard work. Not great weather today either.
  13. What? I’m guessing Tavistock to Plymouth on that? Bloody hell you must be fit/mad or both. You deserve a medal at least.
  14. That definitely looks like the right thing to do. Your welds look good too.
