Re: Paint code

Finally acquired a copy of the James Taylor book.
Of course I skipped to the CKD bit, to find that the summaries of Australian 3.5 and 3.9D bare an uncanny resemblance to articles I'd written a couple of year prior to this publication. Just a little disappointing.

Re: Wanted... Windscreen glass Sundym

Not the best alternative but as it's flat glass you could have two cut from laminate. There is a standard light green tint similar to Sundym. Probably not noticeable unless viewed from 3/4 profile.

Re: Steering relay.

PAS should self bleed, just operate lock to lock with the engine running.

Re: Steering relay.

There is supposed to be an aftermarket, bespoke conversion for a handful of armoured Land-Rovers used in Northern Ireland. I understand this utilised most of the original steering system and not the usual chassis chop 110/Disco conversion typically seen today.

Re: Steering relay.

As above, read your parts book.

Mountings, main body, end cap screws and one arm are different. Most play issues are usually from a pinch bolt coming loose.
They are a fiddle to rebuild but DIY achievable.

Re: Wheels

Again it depends on the market instead of asking overly broad questions. If UK home market then it's the concurrent road wheel for LWB (< 1 ton). They are dated as well as part numbered and there's an optional split rim. As a British part it may also be supplied in primer, not colour because of mark...

Re: Bonnet locks

I like it but there's lack of detail in the listing. The original uses a different key to the ignition and door and a unique barrel. This reproduction appears to use the current generation double bladed door key and matching barrel? In which case I'd either want to know so I can change it and have t...

Re: Paint code

Back to the original post; certainly in the case of BMC-A and LA: delivered new, fire service vehicles could be found in a factory applied red finish (typically not a special order colour) and thus applied everywhere gloss paint normal goes, or, in whatever generic colour of the day (the next vehicl...

Re: Restoration

Oil migration through the splines wasn't sufficiently solved by the felt seal. The trade fix eventually adopted by LR was to omit the felt and plaster both parts of the splines with RTV type sealant. Needs to be clean and if careful you can use the felt as well. Fitting the felt correctly was always...

Re: Restoration

Presses are cheap. Certainly cheaper than your hydraulic puller. Don't forget checking bite on the baulk rings (ability to grab the tapered face of the gear). Plus which way up the drain holes go in the oil pump. Glueing the output splines (you're supposed to omit the felt washer but I typically fit...

Re: Paint code

So the entire vehicle is assembled, in primer, just so someone else can disassemble it in order to paint, including drilling out all those pop rivets? Otherwise to arrive at the tide-mark used car finish, painting up to the edges. Creating paintwork that wouldn't be covered by new car warranty and p...

Re: Paint code

All arctic white (the standard roof colour) is quite possible and was a standard mono-colour.

Complete vehicles weren't supplied less colour.

Re: Gumtree again

Nonsensical listing but not bad at $4000 running, even with the 4.4 lt v8.
