    It is off! :D Left it overnight with lots of release oil over it. Today I gave the stub a few whacks with a lump hammer, a bit more jiggling of the wheel then put the puller back on. I put copper slip on the threads as well. Wound it up as...

    If I were doing that job I would not bother replacing the bit at the bottom where you are supposed to fit the supplied [ when new ] Land rover jack [ rubbish thing ] Just weld in some box section the bumper would fit over [ normal nuts and bolts...

    My MOT man while he does mot's on classic cars, you know the types that do a couple of hundred miles per year, he says my 1990 truck is by some way the oldest working vehicle he sees. Good bit of weight reduction going on there Strangeglove.:D

    Looks like a strong one. I seem to recall enlarging the two threaded holes on the steering wheel so I could use larger bolts. Few years ago since I did mine, it was a proper bugger to come off at first, now it’s no trouble at all.

    Chocolate drifts ? :D:p Can be a bit awkward I know with it in the dish of the flange. Are nut and flange still on ? If so put truck in 4th gear with some good chocks at the wheels. Put socket on nut and turn off in the normal way. The split...

    Is this the split pin through the nut that holds the drive flange on?

    Not been run in a long time ? Was it going before ? Seems odd you removed the pump just to check it worked when a that was needed was to disconnect injector pipes.

    If what you are looking to use it for is just local/short range hunting expeditions then the 2.5na will be fine, more so at that low miles and they can have power steering fitted. have a look at Glencoyne engineering site, lots of info about what...

    It is basically a fully mechanical temperature gauge which works regardless of elec power or engine runninge etc. Not cheap but they just work, and better than the std ones they work from a much lower coolant temperature, so you can really see...

    A lot depends on what use you are putting it to and how many miles per year. A 89 Landy would most likely had standard Land rover steels with 205's when new.
