    After a small technical problem with the supercharger at the start of the week it was great to see it up and running and powering around the arena.

    Beware with the bigger Foden you will subject to the forum width police when you come to put it on the road. Do some home work before taking the plunge.

    432 road legal????

    Is a date applied to construction and use reg's that allow grand father rights as such to early vehicles?
  5. I'm finding it rather funny that the general feeling is i will do what i like to my truck and disregard the law attitude is being applauded here, yet in the is a 432 legal threads anyone who sticks up for keeping their taxed/insured/registered 432 is shot down for putting a track on the road for a vehicle that rightly or wrongly has been considered road legal for a long time.

    K60 Engine info required please

    Dave, We have B81's and K60 packs in the yard you could look at/measure up when you pop in.
  7. Anyone know the purpose of this odd Sankey? Looks as if the front panel is removable. Never seen this type before, its currently listed on a Mod disposal site in Germany.
  8. I have had the same happen on a Series 3 engine and box, parted in the end by using a hi-lift jack wedged against the back of the block and the nose of the jack against the gearbox. Keeping pressure on the jack and belting the handbrake drum ( didnt want to damage the gearbox case) it let go in the end.

    Recovery and Towing

    The problem with towing on poles is they can be next to invisable to the public even with a marker hanging from the middle of the pole. Had a close escape when being towed in a mates 110 with his other Landrover. Coming out of a side street into traffic stopped for a set of lights, a guy in the waiting traffic flashed him out into the stationary traffic as the lights changed. He pulled out and the guy started to move forward behind him oblivious to the pole with a 110 attached bearing down him. Luckily there was nothing on the pavement so i had to mount the kerb and squeeze the 110 through a narrowing gap between the car and a lamp post! :wow:

    Defender seat box's

    It will fit but the gearbox tunnel is a different shape so will have a different shaped cutout in the front of the seatbox.
  13. Why wont it fit in the classic? Looks like a standard lt95. Not a 101 box as the bellhousing is too long and not an lt85 as that has a seperate transferbox.

    MV Part longest usage

    How about the red glass light lens? They have obviously been replaced by the plastic mushroom ones for exterior lights but are they still used as a visual fire warning indicator in current equipment?
