Going to try and roll out some upgrades as well as security at the same time.
At the moment i cannot drive her as i need to switch the insurance over, and then tax her. so i will push to get that sorted tomorrow after work.


Good luck with the puller Thumbs Up

I actually broke mine (the puller not the truck) and ended up making my own out of heavier gauge steel and threaded bar. Even then I had to soak the splines in penetrating fluid and use a soft faced mallet Confused

I didn't damage either the splines or the original steering wheel - and the latter is in the safe hands of Ray (Mk1 Collector)

I suspect that yours will be the original steering wheel so take care Thumbs Up

its insured on a temp, so that I could get her home, so its covered for the weekend. Today it expires, so I have to ring mine up. But then again what do you do if your insurance is closed of the weekend. Defender TD5 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

Its never been off at all this one. I have soaked the splines over night, I may have another go but I may have to wait for the puller. Got to empty the back anyway of the goodies, and have a look what I will keep or sell. Defender TD5 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

the drive is worlds a part like you said, And for some reason this one seems a lot more stable than my 300, even my dad noticed that, I have had a bit of a nosy around it a little bit more, and its got a K&N filter in it. Which I may switch that over to a ITG one, I may need to replace the black part of the dash, the previous owner screwed two self tapers in for a fire extinguisher bracket, I have a portable heater thing too which is about as powerful as a fart. So that's going to be binned off as soon as grafty sorts me out with some of his magic vents, and I will be fitting the top dash vents too, like I had in the old one, For the side windows.

I will be having a sort out of some of the bits and pieces that I got with it too, The grill maybe up for grabs depending if I can sort it out, the spots have pushed it in. ( those are going too) Defender TD5 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

Just finished my 1st spending spree Shocked I wont total up on what I have spent Laughing But its worth it to start at least rolling out some upgrades and security, I have seen something nice, but I will have to hang fire for that.
I cannot drive this at the moment, thanks to DVLA, with it having a private plate on, and the tax been transferred on to the original plate, I cannot tax the car. Rolling Eyes its taxed on the data base, but that will change as soon as the docs come through. DVLA said that I cannot drive the car and must remain off the road, until paper work comes through. What a Censored on, why can they have just let the Censored tax go with the Censored motor? Not the Censored wonder people get busted unfairly at times.
Insurance did me a deal, with the policy coming to an end and with me been a customer of theirs since the metro vvc days.
They said we can Swop it over for 50quid and up the excess fee for you. which was nice of them. They are sorry that we couldn't do business again this year. Defender TD5 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

Be careful of oiled air filters and Td5’s. If they are over oiled they will kill you MAF sensor. Personally I run good quality paper ones and change them very regularly. Thumbs Up

+1 for a genuine paper filter, mine ate MAF sensors at an alarming rate when I was running a Greencotton air filter. The only disadvantage (when running a modified intake system and big turbo) is less turbo noise Thumbs Up 2002 90 Td5 Station Wagon

Ok I will revert it back to paper ones, the 306 is ok with the ITG one, but then again do you really benefit from these fancy filters? sometimes I really do wonder. Defender TD5 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

On a Defender at least, no. Pete Bell did some comparative dyno tests a few years ago and was able to demonstrate that the paper filter outperformed the oiled ones by a decent margin. Darren

1st security upgrade rolled out and installed Milestone

I had my eye on this steering wheel since the metro days, as I quite liked the Sort of OEM look it gave,
With the removable boss, been bought up I thought yep this will do, I am not spending nearly £200 quid on a steering wheel, when I can put that else where.
So here is the pre defender preb, ( i bought all the goods ready to plug in play when i bought a TD5)
The wheel has a centre horn, so the centre cover was removed, and the horn switch was removed. ( if anyone wants the switch, feel free to PM)

the boss checked over and prepped ready to install,

Then take one Black TD5
slacken off the nut and buy a neat little puller and off it goes!

then slot on our boss, and we are a way
