Brake pad sensor lit up on dashboard - funny I just changed the pads recently ... turns out the sensor wire had chaffed and was intermittently shorting out. Lucky I had a spare one in the garage - remove wheel, fender liner rivets, disconnect old one inside liner , thread new one in - fixed !

Wow - any idea what it was rubbing against and was there some clip that was supposed to hold it in place?

Oil spitting from park drum. Graeme had LT230 seals kit, got one. Turned out to be the felt washer on the rear output shaft was shredded, flange nut was on hand tight... weird. 

 

Sealed up, new oil, props greased. 

 

Next week adjust diff lock linkage.

MrBlueSky came over for some wrenching; installed his new-to-him Rovers North bumper, an electric fan on his ExMoD110.
.
And I had installed a 3 core radiator with new coolant, electric fan (dialed to kick on at 200F) and oil change to 15w50 M1. Running at idle, the electric fans come on about every 10-15min (I think that’s normal?); dropping the temp from 199 back to 185. This thing better not overheat anymore!

And last week, finally finished the switch cluster for lights, rad fan, aux fuel, winch, 2x 12v outlet, and iPad mini mount. Looks pretty from the outside, but a rats nest of wires behind it.

15w50?  That's extremely heavy for a normal V8 gas motor.  I believe the original spec is 10w40 (?).  I know a lot of people run 15w40; often Rotella which is an HD diesel oil.  What made you change to the 15w50?

I was running 10w40 before the swap.

The 15w50 is heavier, but it's synthetic and flows reasonably well even in winter in bay area, so cold start up shouldn't be an issue. Prob more important is 50 protects better  at high temp.. which I've pretty much accepted my engine just runs hot.

And I think 15/50 is only grade with zinc for add'l wear protection. 

 

I was also looking at the Shell Rotella T3; popular with owners of older LR V8's. I've not had experience with it.

I use T4 and T5 rotella 15w40 on both the 110 and Disco

 

Pleased with it.

Come on - Chuck uses his!

 

In the spirit of the thread, I washed the D1 this weekend (only the 2nd time!) and touched up all the scrapes on the tubework from Tank Traps.

finally got a _solid_ recovery point for my ARB bumper. 

And after much research, ARB doesn't have front recovery points on their front bumpers... no matter what make you buy it for. 

Bonehead move of the project... let's be honest, you're not working on a LR if there isn't a bonehead story behind it.. I used a level to ensure the mounting holes are level on the bumper. Marked them and drilled them out. Somewhere between marking and drilling, I got un-leveled by a bit. So, the recovery point is slightly off. Oh well,  I'l just say it's like that to compensate for the weight of driver - like corner balancing in race cars! :D

Then, decided to get grade 8 hardware (bc whatever came with the mount was not marked for grade 8)... well, the bolt heads are a little too big for the shackle. And I can only get 2 turns into the thread. So, I'll have to grind down 1/16" on the head and make it fit. But when was the last time you worked on the truck without breaking out the grinder? Though, not one has been able to confirm nor deny, it's accepted as modern day fact that grinders were invented in Solihull, UK, shortly after LR introduced Series I's. Feel free to share that story!

So the new hardware has thicker heads and now the flange on the shackle pin is hitting the bolt heads?

 

Shouldn't be a problem to knock a bit off the flange as you mentioned.  It's not really under much side-loading; heck you're not even supposed to screw it tight when using it.

So I finally got around to making the greatest upgrade a land Rover owner can make... signed up for AAA premier road side assistance.

I've also been working on my headliner, took it out over a year ago to redo and finally have it back in the car.

Now just finishing adding back the plastic pieces... looking forward to having sun visors again!!

Basically all holes are offset by a hair, but enough that the pin now can't thread all the way through. 

So, I have to either grind down the bolt heads... or enlarge the shackle mount hole.

I'm going to say 'not modify the shackle'.
