Re: replacement radiator

I have had the same problems recently and was quoted silly money in Australia to recore. I eventually settled on a Chinese alloy unit which need a little bit of work to fit. It is a little wider than the old unit so have to rethink my electric fan installation. Looking at the Suzuki unit on eBay I n...

Re: Rimmers headlight switch

I like the sound of having another position on my headlight switch for fog.
Does anyone know if the wiring loom is the same on the facelift models, my car is a 1977 2500TC.
That is to say the wiring is still there and an earlier switch could be fitted.

Re: Radiator cap mod

Hello Bernard, "The supplementary is:- Apart from allowing clearance for the radiator cap is there another reason why the radiator has a space between it and the bulkhead?" I don't understand what clearance you are talking about, can you explain further or show a picture? Alec Here is a photo of th...

Re: Radiator cap mod

Thanks for the photo Jonathan, knew I have seen it somewhere. I intend to weld a fitting for the cap in to the existing casting. This will mean that the coolant fills the engine and head, which is probably why the setup was used on the WCR car. My car is Australian build with the fan in front of the...

Radiator cap mod

I want to move my radiator cap to the casting on the front of the head. Why? Its the highest point and seems a sensible place for it and would negate the fitting of a header tank. But why? Well I want to move the radiator forward to give more clearance in the front of the engine for electric fans an...

Re: What happened to-side indicator lenses

Tell us more They are cast in resin. The resin is specified good to 70 degrees C. and will sustain a high polish. Final quality/shape is dependent on the model used to make the mold. The colour can be darker or lighter. The original I used to make the mold had gone opaque so hard to tell the colour...

What happened to-side indicator lenses

What happened to side indicator lenses.
Here is one I just took out of the oven.
It is a left side and I have polished out the external markings.
They can be made lighter or darker.

4 pot squeezers?

I was looking at some four pot break calipers for sale at a reasonable price here in Australia. They would be for my 1977 2500TC.
They are specified for a Land Rover Discovery non vented disk. They certainly look like they will do the job, anyone know if they will?
