Re: Improved heater

An idea I found in the latest Practical Classics magazine, from a Staff Car Saga author who was having demisting issues on a Peerless GT; fit a 12V Marine bilge fan/blower in the air intake trunking to the heater, to give it a boost in demisting pressure - they blow approx 130-145 cfm, and would be...

squeaking fuel pump

afternoon all,

It's not necessarily an issue (yet), but my fuel pump has recently got into the habit of creaking slightly, more like a squeaky mattress rather than the tick I'm used to. Is this a sign of imminent diaphragm issues do you think?

Re: Longevity of front tie bars

Silly question and more borne out of wondering than Having tried to do it yet, but how are you meant to undo the nut at the chassis side of the tie bar? Always thought it looked and extremely tight fit, or do you undo the other side first and then rotate?

Re: Rear heated window (Traveller)

resurrecting this thread slightly. I've been contemplating putting in some heated rears on my mog, but last year when I was replacing the sealant on the windows, I was stumped at how the glass can be removed. I removed all of the fillets on left, right and bottom pieces, but the top piece of wood ap...

Re: Traveller load space cover and back door glass.

on the rear windows, I've been thinking about doing this for a while. what other ancilliaries did you buy when installing yours? I'm assuming a switch and some wires, or does that come included with the windows on ESM?

Re: Keeping a Minor Outdoors

I keep my traveller outdoors - had it 5 years (after having the wood replaced as soon as I took ownership) and all seems fine. I just make sure to cover it up whenever prolonged rain is forecast and to renew the oil / fill the joints every summer.

Re: switching diffs

yup - filler is on the back of the axle, so will still have a place to top up :D

anything else I could check whilst I've got it off? checking replacing UJs? Which reminds me - I need to mark the prop shaft with chalk to indicate which side was up don't I?

switching diffs

afternoon all!

so I've recently come into possession of a 3.9 diff, and was wondering if anyone has any tips / guide on how best to switch out the old 4.2 for the new one? any pitfalls, things to know?

Thanks!

Re: Traveller rear suspension

getting the pin out at the front was an absolute mare on my car however - had to resort to a very large hammer and an extension bar to get it off!
