RIP Frankieboy.

I never met him personally but I've seen his posts often enough. Seemed like a very decent bloke, and he'll be missed around here for sure.

My best wishes to the family.

For Sale / FOR SALE: 1983 88" Land Rover Series 3 Station Wagon
« Last post by El Hair on March 30, 2019, 20:21:45 »
It is with great regret that I am putting up my 2.25L Series 3 ("Odie") for sale as I neither have the space, nor the time to devote to it.

I have made a number of modifications to Odie since first buying him. Headlamps have been upgraded from the original sealed beams, to halogens. Timing was redone a while back as it was way off. Front and rear differential guards have been fitted, as well as a steering guard. Breathers are fitted to both axles. A T-Max split-charge system has been added with the secondary battery (a leisure battery) behind the passenger seat. The alternator was upgraded to cope with the additional charge. Door mirrors upgraded to Defender equivalents.

The cylinder head was upgraded many years ago (before my ownership), so unleaded petrol can be used with any further additives. A Kenlowe fan is fitted, but not connected up - it does work however. As you would expect on a vehicle now 36 years old, the original pain is a little tired. Overall the chassis is in very good condition with a small amount of welding work carried out (see pictures). The side and rear window seals need replacing, but new seals are included. Gearbox includes a Fairey Overdrive. Two spare Wolf wheels (7.50 R16) in addition to the ones in each corner.

MOT expires: May 2019
Mileage: 91677

Extensive service and parts history.


The sale also includes (but not limited to) a number of different items:
Refurbished Rover Gearbox (Unused and empty of oil)
Britpart Doortops (two)
20L Ex-Military Jerry Can
Spare brake peddle
Brake pads
Numerous gaskets, filters and other spare parts
Roof Rack
Halogen light bar
10,000 lb Kingone winch KDS-10.0

Note: Roof box is not included in the sale.

Asking price: £6000

Just wanted to let people know - who knew him

Frankieboy

Frank Has unfortunately but peacefully passed away after a long fight on Tuesday this week.
His wife Penny messaged to let me know that sadly he had lost his fight with cancer.
A true gent and a very great friend

All our love goes out to Penny and the family at this sad time.

Defender / Defender 200tdi injection pump - tuning
« Last post by durhamlandy on December 05, 2018, 07:45:01 »
Hi.

I've been messing around with the injection pump and the like on my 200, after fitting a full size intercooler. I've read the various guides on the net, but still fail to get it right. I've adjusted the turbo wastegate, increasing the pressure. Adjusted the main fuel adjustment on the back of the pump, and tweaked / rotated the pin in the housing. I did lose the nylon washer when takign the pin / spring arrangement out and had to find a temporary replacement with a olive from a 15mm copper compression fitting whilst I find a proper one - which is proving rather difficult!

Symptoms are black smoke on load, so its most likely the main fuel adjustment wants screwing back - but rather than me getting it 85% right, does any know an old fashion / non chip tune / non computer-ma-bob tuners that still exist in and around the County Durham region, that will make a decent job of it?

whilst I'm on Im looking for someone that could make some custom exhaust hangers for a stainless side exit exhaust, to limit some of the vibration using the standard mount positions.

Cheers

Chris.

Erm, I don't remember plastic bits.  If the inside is still recognisable I'd have thought you'd replace new for old, so the kit would have all the parts that wear out.

Is the plastic bit there to hold the rollers?
