    I thought you had your charging fault sorted Chas?

    Maybe it’s just a plug thing, you know you can drive all day on charged batteries, that’s how you got home from my place... :lol::lol:

    Yep, new voltage regulator in the alternator solved the charging problem Clive, I reckon that recent bump might have loosened the plug on the back, I'll have to crawl underneath and check.

    Your hard take-off and landing may have shaken a fuse or two loose somewhere - I would go round them all as a starting point.

    Today guys a long awaited engine oil service using fully synthetic oil. Moved on to a much needed gearbox service too having had to take the pan off and clean the filter. Hard job personally having done it myself for the first time.
    While I was under the vehicle notice for sometime some oil leaking from the gearbox / prop-shaft oil sump. Took it upon myself to change the O ring too another small job done :thumbup:

    The cause of the Christmas tree light display has been discovered by clever Trevor, the alternator plug has three wires coming from it one of which has broken, Trev says it's the sensor wire, alternator is still putting out 14. something volts so batteries are being charged OK. The bad news is that the plug is damaged so I'm hopefully getting one from Karl.

    Yes Dervis they do tend to leak; it's quite common. I have changed the O ring before and not managed to get it to seal. Go figure. My current one is sealed with RTV. It's worked so that's sorted but I had to change the oil seal on the output shaft and figured it would be easier to do this on the bench whilst it was off the car. The locking tab isn't very snug and I guess that the unit tends to get shaken a fair bit leading to it leaking.

    So, on my week off, for minimal expenditure and in preparation for some of Mr starcruisers finest gullwings, I had a cabinet reshuffle. Not finished and definitely not happy with where the electrics are but it's gone from this

    Well.... it looks like I made it up close! Finally got the air tank installed. Wouldn't quite fit the other side with the battery.

    Now have a correctly functioning cooling fan, tried adding oil etc to the old one but it was never right. New viscous unit fitted today and it's a good un.

    Chucked some new spark plugs in and an oil/filter change. Greased the props and gave it a once over, mot due soon. Checked the ignition timing and adjusted the belts.

    Just waiting for the new air filter to arrive from pipercross. :icon-biggrin: :auto-layrubber:

    Various painted parts have taken a beating from gravel/rocks so will need a clean up and re paint.

    Winter gear in the boot, grab bag sorted out and put in the back.

    Bit more than maintenance I suppose you could say, on the home straight of rebuilding dad's land rover, none of us are painters but it ain't too bad-better than it was anyway!

    Not really maintenance but had a day in the workshop today re fitting the front wings which I had re furbished where they rust behind the arches ( on my 80 Amazon). Fully rustproof now all fitted up and ready to go.

    Which reminds me, I have a new pair of front wings to fit to the '100'. I've been trying to get a decent paint finish on them, without much success. Another box of rattle cans arrived from 'Pro Aerosols' so on with the learning curve :eusa-whistle:.
