Re: Circular heater

At that price I would just fit a pull on/off switch. The fan hardly does anything even when on maximum setting, so the rheostat is really not needed. Might be worth taking the old one apart before you bin it though.

Re: Crankshaft pulley removal

Well it is always worth having some Plus Gas about, it has freed off a lot of rusted fittings for me. I don't bother with the aerosol, just the standard can. Will last you for years. WD40 is really a water dispersant hence the WD.

Re: Crankshaft pulley removal

WD40 is not a penetrating oil although a lot of people think it is. You want something like Plus Gas : http://www.plusgas.co.uk/

Re: Circular heater

I think the ones for early Land Rovers are the same, but you would need to check, £20 new:

Re: Backfire on overrun

+1 for exhaust leak. Cast an eye over the entire exhaust system and see if you can spot any witness marks to show where exhaust gases are escaping , usually at a joint.

Re: New Battery & Regulator Adjustment

Interesting, on the strength of that I am happy to leave things as they are. Thank you. Regards your comment "not a regular battery", this Hankook lead/calcium battery was the very cheapest I could find(075 code, £55 delivered), so by definition I would have thought it should be described as regular?

Re: New Battery & Regulator Adjustment

Thanks, but I was not confused. I have remembered where I read about this, it was on the Land Rover Series 2 forum. This was the post: Batteries "The new technology Lead/Calcium batteries are long-lived - come with 4 or 5 yr guarantees - if looked after. Our best advice is to fit the biggest battery...

New Battery & Regulator Adjustment

I have just had to fit a new battery, and I have heard that modern batteries should be charged at a lower voltage than the originals. If this is correct, can someone advise how to adjust the regulator to achieve this? The new (Hankook) battery was covered in all sorts of stickers and logos and looke...

Re: "Silly" choke cable question

Yes it should lock but the mechanism does wear out. In the mean time standard practice is one or two clothes pegs depending on the weather. :D

Re: Holes in bulkhead

I did the job today. One of the original rivets was still attached to the sound deadening material. You may be amused to learn that it is trifurcated!

Holes in bulkhead

Can anyone tell me what these holes at the top edge of the bulkhead are for? Looks like something has been pulled out from them as they are distorted.

Re: Oil pressure sender failure

Thanks Declan, that's a good idea, but I was just wondering how it could suddenly change spec. Having googled the switches likely design it seems probable that the diaphragm has failed/pinholed. New sensor now fitted and problem resolved.

Oil pressure sender failure

Just been out for a run in my Morris with recently rebuilt engine. Stopped for lunch and on restarting the oil pressure light was glowing brightly :( . I had fitted an oil pressure gauge, and was relieved to see it showing around 30 at tickover. Revving the engine a little increased the pressure to ...
