I had the puncture fixed by our local ATS this morning. A new tube and £31.98 including VAT later it’s sorted.

I then used the 90 for work. A colleague who used to have a series 3 until domestic life meant it was sold, came over for a chat after admiring it. He asked what was wrong with it as it wasn’t leaking oil!!! Surprised

Was there any oil in it Rich?
I'm pleased my Land Rover has tubeless tyres.

Mine are still in the garage - bought them off you at Malvern 2 years ago. I just haven't got as far as the doors yet - always seems to be something else that needs repair/replacement first. Prob get around to them in the next few years...……..

I’ve got Landy parts in my garage that have been there more than two years too! No time to fit them though. Rolling Eyes Sad

Mine are in the attic. I'm not going to confess how long they've been there, and I only need to do the back windows. I've door tops up there too, and doors and a bonnet in a spare bedroom. I did exert myself to check some tyre pressures yesterday though, 12 in all - then I had a little rest and read a book Rolling Eyes

I checked tyre pressures too today, 3 wheels and the spare (the 4th will be done when I remove the wheelclamp again.) The 3 road wheels were OK but the spare was down to 20psi so I topped it to about 40, (I have 30psi all round.) I didn't want to remove the spare so I used the T Max compressor running off the spare battery and that soon topped it up. It's easy to pump up the spare in situ as the valve faces outwards.
I've had the compressor for ages but only found out today by reading the label on it that as well as having 2 cylinders, each cylinder has its own motor.

The wheel clamp was removed today as the Land Rover was to be used so I checked the remaining tyre pressure. It was down a bit on the others but a few minutes with the trolley compressor soon had it the same. Good arm exercise too.

Swapped the suspension today. Should have been replacing the sender unit too but it seems you don't get a new olive with the unit...

In other news, got my eye on a V8 disco. Wondering if the engine will fit in my 90??

I checked the engine oil after yesterday's run, none used.

Walked past on the way to my work van and patted Henry on the front wing - just to let him know that I still love him Smile

4 new tyres fitted this afternoon. They looked narrower initially but after the drive home they'd settled and the wheel clamp fits OK.

So what does it say on the sidewalls, Alan? Tubeless? Or do they not even bother to state that now?
