      Hi Herb, Fantastic day yesterday, I learnt an awful lot about Land Rovers, a real education - I admired you persistence with those ruddy locks, baffling does not do these buggers justice!

      ....Now get that dash fitted :p :)

      Again thanks :)

      Hi oldseadog thanks for your quick response, I have tried it in almost every combination hi and low in free wheeling hubs out, when I put it in gear and let the clutch out there is a werring sound

      Hi mate, it's nice to see that there are others from the North East on this form. Sp00ks is from Washington and I myself am in Newcastle.

      Hi Billy
      The UJ's are held in place by ciclips which are located in the recesses and can be a bit fiddly to get in!
      That's why when I do any I leave one circlip in place and use that to bottom out the cup.
      Because the circlip is used for centralising and balance you are better off working with one of each pair left in and doing the rest using the big hole on the opposite side.
      As I say, I am only across the river if you ever need support.

      hi mate went out in landy today and it started vibrating and then bang!the universal joints have thrown the end caps out and one end actually seperated from flange i stopped straight away to find one end of prop hanging down and oil pouring out from engine on closer inspection a cap had hit the oil filter [phew![] and thats all the damage thats done i managed to get a tow home [in neutral] and took it all apart again some nuts were mangled .what i think i did wrong is not push everything in far enough in vice and circlips werent sitting in right place do they sit in the groove thats recessed if so thats my problem thanks billy

      hi there mate just a queery about winch controls .ihave acut off switch inside car and was wondering what position it should be in when notin operation i.e horizontal/vertical im asking as the grandkids were playing in it and there bound to have touched everything cheers -billy

      Possibly, but check your earth bonding from battery to chassis and from chassis to engine is sound. If not you will have a recurring problem that would have been quite simple to sort out. Without the earth continuity, the battery would never fully charge, and a lot of your starting power will be lost overcoming the extra resistance of a poorly earthed system.
      Hope this helps.
