Re: Disco with electric winch

I have just done a dual battery conversion in my D1. Relocated the power steer res and a few other bits and bobs and now have two batteries in stockish locations.

Have a pair of 650CCA's and have an upgraded 150amp alternator.

Re: Failed WOF

I have done a few vehicles that required a press without using a press.

Cut the base of the joint with an angle grinder and hammer the pin and ball thru. Then use an angle grinder to cut a wedge out of the joint outer.

Re: 4M40 96 Challenger Burning out glow plugs!

The oil causing the issues would be very unusual. Faulty injectors and burnt glowplugs and faulty sensors are very common issues.

Re: R150 v R151f

The V6 ratios on the R150 won't suit the diesel and the shifter location is different which will cause tunnel issues.

Re: D21 Terrano draining battery

Do you have a meter? If so put it in amps mode and undo the positive cable and put the meter inline between the cable and battery.

Remove each fuse one at a time noting the current on the meter. When it drops away you have found the circuit.
