2001 Defender 90 Td5 PU Caledonian Blue

Christ the special tracks are heavy on steel rim , but itโ€™s in and ready for Sunday at the pit , gonna experiment with holes in the tub tops , sheโ€™s not to heavy at the back and when driving around the lake, she always floats at the rear , hopefully these will disperse the air and lets the rear tyres get down on the deck .

So the word has spread that the pit is full of water , so that means the lake crossing will be 6ft plus deep ๐Ÿ˜, so popped under to bung me plugs in and spotted I lost a front bump stop during last weekends field fun , will get one from my local tomorrow and get it fitted ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

A superb morning at the pit , and we now have several tons of soil to play on , the pics donโ€™t do it justice , but this machine did brilliantly , I can not believe what I achieved this morning , she took an hour to de-mud . Iโ€™m blooming knackered and yep I got very stuck and I loved it

2001 Defender 90 Td5 PU Caledonian Blue

so tonight shes had all the oils drained , the front axle was clean , the rear was not , engine and transfer box were as clean as , considering shes only done 800mile ish since the last change , but she has been round the pit for 700 of those , my paperwork tells me i did not change the gearbox oil last year , so that has done about 1600ish miles and yep , that was clean too . the biggest surprise was how much water came out of the bell housing when i removed the wading plugs , i suspect the water must come in via the starter ? i spent an hour cleaning her after the pit and now i`ve been under she`ll get another better wash after the new oils go in . we had a photographer there , so hopefully some good pics soon

Sure is ray Thumbs Up

Today sheโ€™s had a full oils change and all filters , except the new diesel filter was a poor seal , so refitted the old ( 800 ) mile one . Got her out of the garage for a full stripped out pressure was clean , inside and out cos the pit is so corrosive , as there are no more pit visits till next year , sheโ€™ll be used now n then to keep her on her toes , will remove the snorkel to give me back a smidge if power Twisted Evil

Nice plan to give her a thorough clean and then once or twice on the tarmac to blow the cobwebs away Very Happy 1996 Golf Blue 300Tdi 110 Pick up. Keeper.
