Went out for a drive this morning in Nigel or Ella....He sounds and feels better than he has ever done. That background misfire that plagued us has gone. Feels stronger and more powerful than ever before.

I made them for the dash. My band saw skills can use some work but I think they came out ok. I don't have speakers in my doors but I'm sure they could work.

How small are the stock speakers? I can't see how they ever got a speaker to work with the wiper motor right there. I think I would of done better to relocate the wiper motor than build a spacer.

What kind of sliders are those? Very nice 110. Almost a twin of mine except for the white roof and exo cage.

I'm installing a new Duel Battery Setup and checking the relay for the duel fans. One fan between the turbo inter cooler and radiator and the other between the radiator and engine.

Exchanged the front tire right side by the spare wheel.
It got flat over night.
Now I need three new 255/85R16 MTs.
They are offered at a very high price at Paddock's Spare.

Would you be losing your parking in NJ? I hope all goes well.

Not technically what I did to my truck but maybe not worthy of a new thread....I don't know why I didn't do this previously, but since I have the documentation on my 110 that was originally an Austrian Feuerwehr truck I decided to google the town. Sellrain Austria is exactly the place I envisioned that would want a Rover, and explains the low mileage but pretty bad galvanic corrosion I've been excising from what I imagine are intense winters. They even had this gem in the Brigade chronicles online (translated):

Quote:
At the committee meeting on 31 August 1992, the opinion is expressed that the Land Rover is no longer roadworthy. The acquisition of another vehicle is to be operated. A working committee is to look at different types of vehicles.
I think I'm going to have to put the coat of arms back on the doors, its pretty good...

About 4 years (I guess technically 3.5 years) after I changed my timing belt, I went in for a full inspection of the timing case, water pump, bearings, etc.

Cleaned up some white corrosion on the water pump aluminum. Zinc electroplated my coolant pipe tee, and replaced some corroded bolts with brand new zinc plated replacements and acid-cleaned and zinc electroplated other fasteners. All in all, the engine looks in pretty good condition.

Found the timing on the 200tdi was off (counter-clockwise, facing the front of the engine). I had to loosen the FIP pulley bolts and rotating the FIP pulley clockwise to its max rotation (using the keyway) would just let my timing pin slide in. So I did a full re-time, removing the timing belt and tensioner, timing according to the book (flywheel locking pin, timing pin, beam torque wrench, etc.) Timing belt, water pump, and tensioner all looked in excellent condition. Unsurprising since the timing case was dry and I've maybe put 800 miles a year on the truck.

Changed the oil on the york compressor.

Drained the power steering fluid and did a full flush. Removed, cleaned and sealed the power steering pump connectors that go into the PS box.

New PH8A oil filter on the truck, drained the old oil and refilled with 6 quarts 10w40 full synthetic.

Started up the engine and it is definitely a little louder/shakier at idle. I didn't get a chance to drive the truck around, but since my timing was pretty off, I'm sure that my acceleration and top speed will improve!


I guess I'll do this all over again in 1.5 years...

The gold-plated, carbon nanotube oil filters were out.

The filter was actually a Driveworks filter, which is some cheapo Advance Auto Parts brand.

In a total WTF moment, I noticed that the rear plate on my Defender was MIA today. Like.....when the F did that happen.
Dammit, I have to waste some time at the RMV...
And I only just got it back on the road...
