    Understand the risk but my house is built from those blocks so hope they don't crush that easily! Have wooden blocks between the chassis and the top of the concrete blocks to spread the load and won't be underneath there again until the engine...

    Nice to see someone else with their hands in the guts of a freelander. Although you really shouldn't use aggregate blocks for supporting the body. They can crush without warning, which wouldn't be pleasant if you're underneath at the time.:eek:...

    It's amazing just how much faster re-assembly is, once a proper spanner can be used on the stat bolts. You'll enjoy having a leak free cooling system. ;)

    On the subject of the M47 stat, not so much what I've done today, but more what a bit of a hero sorted for me today... The coolant rail o-ring had been leaking for some time, and the original stat failed a long time ago. I'd been puttng both...

    Have you damaged a driveshaft when you did the wishbones?

    You can get aftermarket kits from as little as £20. However be aware that there could be a new law around the corner which prohibits the use of mobile phones while driving, whether hands free or not.

    I'd just scrape the goop out the ports and vacuum what drops onto the valve. I'm not convinced by Terra-Clean myself, but it might be worth a try.

    I've not used that, but have plenty of experience with the IID. On the IID, anything done by mistake can be reversed, although it's pretty impossible to make a mistake with it.
