Steering wheel delamination

I saw a guy on one of the landrover forums fix his defender wheel with the same problem. He injected a runny epoxy with a syringe through the foam to the solid wheel. I don't know if it then felt any different.....I have just learned to live with a squidgy wheel on my defender!

electric fan

I'm always up for a puzzle and as Jim said, the otter switch is after the relay, then perhaps it was there that a circuit was wrongly made? I can find three different basic types of otter switch in use...the bi metallic strip, the brass/copper head and the later solid state type. I don't know if the...

electric fan

It would if you have the surge like my tractor. If it happens every time you start up, try disconnecting the starter power and then turn the key. If the fan doesn't come on, then it's the surge of the starter powering up causing the problem.

6a turns over, fires up and stops when key is let go

I had this happen to me on another vehicle.....turned out to be a loose connection somewhere, the ignition got its feed from the starter motor circuit when starting and as soon as the key was back to normal on mode, the circuit disconnected.

electric fan

Can't see how alloy rims are gonna cure the problem! 🙄
But one of my tractors often surges through a couple of relays on startup....it might be that if you have a relay in the fan circuit?

SE8 splitting overdrive from gearbox

I think I've said it before....other than bearing traders, if you can find a local agricultural engineering company, they normally have nearly every bearing size (metric, imperial, metric to imperial) in stock. The last thing a farmer wants is for his silage cutter to go down at the wrong window, he...

exhaust clamps

I always use mikalor.....beauty being that they can be reused when setting up a vehicle. For instance, my 6a having been completely rebuilt is now being sanded down for paint....I have already taken the exhausts off twice whilst tweaking and once I get to final finishing prior to spraying, they will...

Heater Blower Motors

Heater blower motors are the same as for hundreds of brit cars......from my Jensen through my old frogeye sprite to slightly newer bl stuff. I managed to source two good second hand motor units and all the bits including one new shell from Ebay. Can't see the guy advertising at the moment, but will ...

Flasher units

Exactly Jim.....I was just wondering!?

Mind you, I have seen a really tricky setup whereby the second unit operated just the trailer lighting, I wonder some times!

Smart phone memory full !

Sensible move Steve. Incidently, I have a bog standard, non smart phone with no add ons, I use a tablet for everything else so that the phone doesn't get bogged down. Added advantage is that I have negotiated the monthly line cost down to a fiver! It's kinda like in the sixties when the mods had a g...

For our northern members

Kinda reminded me of the cockerel with high sexual prowess that I bought to serve the chickens. When I put it in with the chickens, the next day all the chickens were lying on their backs exhausted and the cockerel was nowhere to be seen. I frantically looked for him and went down the road to Jones'...

Smart phone memory full !

Not only a memory card may be needed.....can you not do a flush or whatever they like to call it now? All the add on programs (apps) that you know and don't know are there are storing data about your usage etc. Go to the memory on the control panel and see if you can remove their stored info, not yo...
