    Pixels all present and correct. I think it should be 123898 but 700 miles is now't in the grand scheme of things :rolleyes:

    It is gone gone. Just noticed the right hand wheel though not as bad is also trimming down the outside shoulder. But I put that down to the left being the short side, so power is more likely to escape that way.

    New tyres, new VCU, DIII, probably the thick end of 600 wangers. I might need to get a job on the side to fund my P38 habit.

    At least he's good at L322 hand brakes, he reckons mines one of the best he's tested :D but then he did adjust it when he put my new discs and pads on :rolleyes:

    Ashcrofts used to di a whole refurbished transfer box for £650.

    Not sure about the 45 degrees thing. It won't move fast.

    Well, that's been a fun week. Fell ill last Friday and only just today out of bed. Exciting times they were not.
    Anyway. I need to remove the BECM & engine ECU but is there any way for me to secure/lock the car without the BECM fitted and the driver's door latch being busted as well? I'm going to order a new door latch next week I reckon so can sort that but still won't be able to lock & unlock the doors (I think). Also, has anyone had experience with http://www.magnecor.co.uk? I'm looking at about £125 + postage I reckon. Can you folk recommend another vendor I should have a look into?

    Cheers

    I've already hooked it up with Richard thanks bud. I just need to send these two computer parts off so he can wave his magic wand over them and hopefully fix my troubles. I'll be fully fit in a few days to take the driver's seat out to get to them.

    Battery off. ECUs out. Lock using sill buttons except for the driver's door which can be locked with the key. If you don't have the key to the driver's door I wouldn't lock it.

    You should get around 45 degrees just in slack, then expect 90 in 1min, anything else is supposed to be dead. Either way, mine is quite probably dead. Heavy steering, poor mpg, scrubbing tyres. I just got called into work and running RWD, I guess I didn't realise how bad it had got over time.

    In an ideal world, I would like to change the whole TBox, but unless I start a GoFundMe, that is unlikely any time soon. Will have to make do with VCU and tyres for now.

    Chipped off 21 yrs of scale and grindered orf the worst off the rust where I could access then sandblasted them which was most frustrating. IMG_20210903_161210_276.jpg IMG_20210903_161154_713.jpg

    Had a happy time. Replaced air filter, fuel filter, pollen filters, oil and oil filter. Just love the cost of buying a kit to change filters on P38's (£21) + cost of oil (£33)
    Did notice slight leak on spill pipe no 1 to no2 injectors, that's tomorrow's job. Luckily got a few feet left from when I had my disco. On average lasts 5-6years so keep it under lock and key

    You could whip mine out to check no problems until I had the injectors out & in. Now they are on a funny angle with the HP nuts and the tang to fit the injector cover.
