Re: Overheating or fuel issue?

second grumpy's kit - I used to get "the vapours" quite often when coming off an a-road into a traffic jam. Fitted the kit and now stutter free!

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!

agree with Monty here - my springs that I fit on my traveller a year and a half ago are not sagging in the least. I'm very happy with the results. usual east sussex supplier

Re: replaceing parcel shelf

thanks ManyMinors - nuts and bolts would be easier for me however as I have all required tools to do the job (apart from right size nuts and bolts currently!). pop rivets would mean I need to buy a new tool, and I'm already getting complaints at how many I have :D

Recently the fuel pump sounds fine when turning the ignition, i.e. a couple of ticks to fill the float chamber before starting. however, sometimes when driving,idling i've noticed that the pump is squeaking like a shoe...
