    100 series wheel carrier

    I've had this OEM style wheel carrier I modified for a while and finally decided to fit it in preparation for doing some trips this year! I got quite far with installing it and then for some crazy reason decided to challenge myself to make a chassis mounted carrier that worked with the OEM...

    Solar panel rewire

    I wanted to be able to use the solar input of the CTEK dual DC-DC charger with my new folding solar panel but the panel is supplied with it's own controller hard wired that won't switch on until it sees 12v across its output terminals which means it won't work with the CTEK. I'd had a good look...

    UZJ100 immobiliser fault

    We suddenly had an immobiliser issue this week and no amount of fiddling with the fuse, jumping it, hitting it etc would make it work even briefly. There's a lot about this on ih8mud but I can't find any threads with an immobiliser fault where the fuse box isn't implicated so I figured I'd take...

    For Sale - KW bash plate for the front of an 80

    Unused but a bit dusty and the odd scratch from storage. Thought I would use this but I have put a front receiver hitch on for pushing the caravan about and this would get in the way. Quite heavy so best collected but you can arrange a courier if you want to. £80.

    Since converting to 12v start I have a surplus 24v starter motor. It's a Milner part, installed 7/9/12 and replaced with a 12v starter 14/10/12 so although used is barely so! It's one of these...

    H151F manual gearbox rebuild

    Time for a separate thread for this I think, Frank's rebuild of Ian's old box, starting soon and will be documented here. To recap, the box in question was rebuilt a few times by a 'specialist' but it had some issues. Frank took the box to bits and found "Most of the syncro rings are chewed and...

    French fuel receipts

    talking about filling up, I noticed the receipts we got for fuel and in motorway service stations in France this year showed how much the transaction was in FRF as well as EUR, which I never noticed before. Is that a new thing or did I just not notice on other trips? Seems a bit odd and made me...

    Travel money

    Just interested to hear what others do for travel money when going abroad. We're off to France, Switzerland (one night stop over) and Italy later in the year so I'm mainly interested in Euros though I'll take a few Swiss francs. Previously I've just had whatever the max Euro's I think I'll want...

    new ipad, what a horrid interface

    :mrgreen: I tried convincing Jess an Android device made more sense but she's insisted on having an ipad 3 so she can play Sims free or something. Anyway, what a horrible device it is to use! Just setting it up for her, no two apps have the same button or even buttons in the same place for the...

    OEM immobiliser

    According to the owners manual that came with my 1997 80 it has an immobiliser fitted and the keys have transponders in them. I'm trying to work out if that's really the case or just wishful thinking. I've got some key blanks so if I can find somewhere to cut one I can test whether or not the...

    Tyresure TPMS

    Following on from Grahams thread I decided to get a Tyresure TPMS to play with. I ordered a complete unit from here and an extra sensor and valve from here . The spare sensor is for my spare wheel, seems silly to have TPMS but if you have to use the spare for any length of time not have it...

    TrackExplorer v2 available

    I've sometimes referred to having my own mapping software running on my car PC but not been in a position to share it, or at least there's been no point sharing it because the only maps it worked with couldn't be shared due to copyright reasons. I've been fiddling with this software on and off...

    OEM 16" wheels - spot the difference

    Rummaging in my garage I noticed something that was a bit of a surprise on one of my spare OEM 16" wheels, so I compared it to some others: the one on the left is how I thought all the 16" OEM wheels are made - very shallow almost none existent recess between the mounting holes but as you can...

    V8 air filter housing change and 2nd battery install

    The standard air filter on Euro and US petrol 100 series is a flat box type that doesn't leave room for a 2nd battery on the drivers side but some markets (e.g. UAE) get a cyclonic filter like the diesel which does leave room for that 2nd battery. Ian was able to get me the parts to swap to that...

    Towbar removal caution

    I put a new towbar on my 100 today and while I was struggling to undo one of the bolts holding the old bar on realised the answer to an old question :) Last year I helped Ray fit a tow bar to a 100 he had just bought that didn't have a bar. When we tried to fit the brackets to the forward...

    tailgate extension

    Another really technical one this :) Make some brackets to bolt onto the wheel carrier: Varnish a bit of 12mm ply and stick two holes in it to match the brackets: Just gives me a bit more space for the cooker and still have access to the contents of the boot without getting burnt :lol...
