    Won't start - odd symptoms

    Hi all, hoping someone can help please. My 1989 LJ70 has been garaged for the winter on a trickle charger. When I tried to start up today (first time this year) there was some power to the dash (radio came to life) but battery/alternator light was on and clearly not enough power to turn the...

    Snorkel fitment write-up for my 1989 LJ70

    Guys - I thought I would share how I got a snorkel fitted to my 1989 LJ70 with a 2LT-E engine. This is a vehicle originally sold in the UK. There were a few complications caused by the fact I own a 1989 (round headlight) model but we managed to work through them and documented everything below...
