And the search for a disco 200Tdi rear axle continues… Rolling Eyes

PS Alan, I haven’t forgotten your radio wiring harness adaptor… Smile

The latest in the brake saga.

The offending cylinders have been swapped, bled and were weeping from the OSF bleed screw. This had been removed and checked by the garage and the screw looks OK. It's been tightened up to torque setting 'FT' and it has started weeping again...

I'll review the exact location the leak is coming from when I get home. At least there's a Chinese tray in under the drum to stop the wheelrim paint being destroyed by the brake fluid.

I found 2 spare sets of brake shoes I'd ordered in December. These are Allmakes and they bedded in very quickly. 60 miles and the front was equal and not pulling and could dip the nose of harsh braking.

So looks like the bottom cylinder may have to come off.

Or I've used a duff bleed screw.

Not having much luck are you lowcatjo. Keep us informed.

I found that Delphi and Mintex wheel cylinders are pretty good. Both were used as original equipment at various times. Much better than Allmakes or other cheapies.

I found a lockable cubby box local to me for a good price on FB a marketplace. Unfortunately, it sold very quickly so I missed it. Evil or Very Mad Rolling Eyes

I'd thought of one but it would interfere with access to the overdrive.

My latest purchase was a rechargeable LED inspection lamp. Not specifically a Landy product but it’ll get used for the 90!

I’ve called two local businesses who do landies, one of which is a welding specialist. Neither has called back as yet so I’ll be chasing these up this week.

Coming back to the wing Vs door mirror topic, on the Range Rover based TACR2 we had, the PO had fitted Defender door mirrors onto the quarterlight panel on it. They were a lot better than the standard Rangie mirrors on the other TACR2 that I drove.

The TACR1 was stuck with wing mirrors, as the doors were on 2A hinges and had clips to secure them back against the wings. Hence Defender mirrors would be useless.

The only problem with the clips was that you still needed to shut the doors when driving, otherwise the wheel fouled the open doors on steering. Especially so with the massive 900x16s that she ran.

I used the 90 for a trip to the tip where, amongst other items, I disposed of the old very rusty bumper. I saw a very nice marine blue series 3 SWB soft-top although I didn’t get to speak to the owner. On the journey back, I stopped at a local Indy to see if he could do the welding on the chassis legs. He was out so I’m still waiting on a call back… Rolling Eyes

One of the two local Indy specialists called back earlier this week and said he could do the welding. He had some pictures of the rust and said he’d get back to me with an approximate price and when he could do it. He hasn’t called back yet though…

I’ve got a couple of hours whilst Mrs K is out with little knappster at a party this afternoon so I’m hoping to give the 90 a wash if baby knappster plays ball and has a sleep… Smile But I’m not holding my breath on that one. Rolling Eyes Smile

Defender washed! It could do with a polish but that’s a job for another day when I have time. It looks better though. It’s amazing how many cobwebs are on a Brownchurch roofrack! Surprised Surprised Smile

Once it’s polished, I’ll see if I can get around to a few more jobs. But first, that welding needs doing… Rolling Eyes The galvy front bumper will look good too, much better that the old rusty one. Very Happy

That's something I must do soon on my Series 3. A wash and a polish.
