Seeing as the front end of my 1971 209s chassis is being rebuilt I thought I may as well tackle another job that needed doing

Trial fitted the tub, side frames and bulkhead prior to painting. A bit of fettling required to get it all lined up but all better than expected  :-*

Following a suggestion on here, I bought an engineers stethoscope.

I've had this annoying tick coming from the tappets, tried the stethoscope on them. I put the probe on the bolt that holds them in - could hear a distinctive noise on No7. Took the head off, investigated, replaced No7 and No1 which both showed signs of rattling. Put it back together - what a difference!

Had to change a tyre one of the fronys although having 10mm of tread has started to crack on the walls, spare on and second spare is now the spare but both are well worn.  I need to replace with another Goodyear Wrangler 750.

Job made easy with the disco hydraulic Jack bought from ebay a few years ago for 9, I cant find another at that price though.

Got my brake lights working again. Mixture of a loose wire and a broken brake light switch. Replaced the switch with a "land rover" switch came without packaging, but does look different in quality to the britpart one that i picked up as well. I got fed up of waiting for the first switch to arrive, it was over a week late. Went to Buckleys for the other switch and the next day the "land rover" one turned up. All working now though, all though puzzles me why they cant be of metal construction.

Andy, that is beacuse you have a series 3, is is a split system? if not fit an S2 hydraulic switch.

At least you now have a spare.

Made a screen washer bottle holder, cut a strip of an old computer door and fabricated/welded a replica bracket (not spending 32 + post on a pattern part!)
