    300 TDi fuel stop solenoid help!

    I have the same solinoid on my bobcat Peugeot engine first one lasted 15 years now I seem to need a new one every few years I think I get them from hella. The other thing to do and this is even more important on the later td5 is don't run around on empty all the time as the fuel gets hotter as it passes through the engine and empty tank heats up more and quicker than a full one
  2. Had an 80 series LC about year 2000 but actually found front axle unreliable compared to my current 100 series. Had a low mileage 3 year old disco 4 one of the nicest vehicle I have owned but zero reliability will never be on my list in future. i would say an 04-06 year 100 series LC would be your best bet. 04 onwards they got the better dash and 5 speed auto box. Make sure it's rust free some go to rot others are perfect. If you get one with hydraulic active suspension when it breaks spend £1500 and put it back on coils. rated for towing 3.5 tonnes but 4.5 tonnes in other countries so up to the job. Strong engine for towing and 25 mpg when solo. Plenty of leg head and arm room. pattern parts are a lot more available now as well

    Are you buying cheap pattern part solinoids. Maybe Oem quality part or genuine from landrover. The other thing to check is the alternator is not over charging because high voltage may burn them out.

    Kindling price

    I find the big outlets retail at about £1 a kilo unless it's been mild then they drop it to 80 p a kilo to shift it. We wholesale a 3.7 kilo net and our customers sell at £3-£4 a net

    Please try to make it quicker

    We only have about 2.5 megs coming down and half a meg going up. I am sure your site is fine but every task takes a second or two which does not sound much but it runs about the speed of dial up years ago. I don't get on here much I just can't get the time and struggle to navigate the new site. We should get fibre in the next year so will be back with avengence

    Sprinter 4x4

    I test drove the van version. Nice high position a little noise onntransmission but won't notice on a pick up. The thing I never tried was the all important push a heavy traile up a drive gravel or tarmac. Not sure how the axles will wind up or if they will start churning things up.

    Wholesale kindling clean and biscuit dry

    Hi if you are collecting 50 bags is minimum but to make it worth while on a pallet you want as much as you can get on as it's the same price. We are getting 126 bags on a pallet currently but not sure if any have gone by freight yet. Or we can send 105 bags. The freightbon a pallet of kindling costs £50 + vat to most areas but not remote or highlands.
