    Haha, I made the stupid mistake of waxoiling the whole tank and guard before refitting. What a pita - wrestling a wet fish into place in 30 degree heat last year.

    Pinched up the horrid clips on the hose off the power steering reservour as mentioned by @jamesmartin in reply to someone else. Pleased to say the almost continuous weep of fluid has now stopped. Thanks. :):)

    Fitted the new fuel tank to the 110 300 tdi. What a pig of a job. Trying to defy gravity with the tank, guard and a dozen spacers, washers and nuts. Nighmare.

    After much deliberation, I decided to buy and fit a Britpart Swingaway Wheel Carrier to my Landy. After reading some of the reviews on this site about the instructions that come with the carrier I downloaded a full set, and this helped loads. The...

  7. Knappster replied to the thread Vehicle inspection for an oversees buyer.

    Looking at the chassis, it looks like it’s been sprayed in waxoyl, or similar. That would make it hard to properly assess any corrosion. The flaky rear end is still visible though. I’d look to factor in a new chassis or at least a new rear...

  10. Knappster replied to the thread New Defender owner, lots of questions.

    Hi and welcome! The list sounds like most are a relatively easy fix. I can’t help with the c-pillars, but everything else should be ok to do. The temperature guage might just be a dodgy sender or an earth issue, the locks can be easily replaced...

  11. Knappster replied to the thread Repeat of Post in the 110 Forum (maybe should have been here).

    Hi and welcome back! I’ve always had landies but have had a few non-Landy vehicles in between but these have gone to be replaced by another Landy! For me, it would be 300Tdi over the Td5, but that’s just personal choice. I had a Td5 disco and...

  13. Knappster liked LaxfieldLandy's post in the thread My first 90..

    I’ve also started to upgrade the electrics a little after tracing an unreliable drivers dipped beam to a dodgy fuse terminal connection (glass fuses). I’ve purchased three 8 way blade fuse holders from vehicle wiring products along with a few...
