What about universal Carnegie? You'll probably need to call, not email. You won't find an off the shelf core. Some say a Ford Falcon core works, but in my experience they are smaller.

Couple days ago I took advantage of a warm day (-10c) in the middle of this deep freeze to replace the corroded and non-working left rear turn signal on the 110. Real pain in the ass to crimp and solder when the wires are to short to extend out past the body panel.

We to had a heat wave, it was in the 30's today.

The second day of the cold snap I had a intake manifold gasket fail and I had to fix that. PTSchram described it as to much crank case pressure. I think it flooded gas into the oil and fumes ignited. Neighbors stuck their heads out and I thought the 110 was on fire at first....

So while I was at it I replaced a few coolant hoses, thermostat and gasket as well.

Turned out the battery was shorting internally as well so a new interstate battery went in today as well. Luckily the old one was still under warranty so it was free to replace :D I honestly think the battery froze to death.

Finally I put my rear spacers on and did a oil change. I'll take some better pics of the after with the spacers on tomorrow in the daylight.

Today I filled the 4.6 with some new Mobil1 15/50 Synthetic and installed a new Mahle oil filter. Anybody else here insist on Mahle filters for their Defender?
Occasionally my Defender would get a haunting visit from the Prince of Darkness so instead of replacing the usually suspect headlamp switch I had to burnish/clean the points in my headlamp dip beam switch on the steering column with a fingernail file and some electric spray cleaner, that seems to have fixed the issue.
I have some more maintenance to complete before heading back to college tomorrow night for the semester. I have to tackle the drivers side rear wheel, where I believe a loud squeal from my brakes is occuring whenever I apply them from slow to stop. Have to replace hub seal and brake pads on that side b/c a couple months ago the hub seal decided to go on strike, allowing diff oil to go everywhere.
Also removed and cleaned with electric spray the interior light switches that switch on/off with opening and closing of the front doors. The interior light had become intermittent and this seems to have cured that electrical gremlin.

On another note I have a 1975 Triumph TR6 on which I very recently replaced the brake servo and had to rebuild the brake master cylinder.

Here is a shot of my seats... I put on wet okole seat covers and added a tuffy box. I went with gray for the seats because I live in Texas, and black is a bad idea in the summer
