Re: 93 Escudo auto no spark

Have you tried bypassing the key barrel ?
Key start signal to the ECU might be intermittent .
I would also be checking he engine wiring harness for shorts to ground .

Re: Oil catch can question

The factory oil seperator cyclone system on the landrover 2.25 turbo diesel Drians back to the sump without the use of a one way valve .

But is plumbed in below the oil line in the sump to prevent sump pressurisation or oil blow back up the drain line . Seeems to work ok .

Re: X5 Project.

So if your rope normally gets bunched up are you not concerned with the minimal clearance between the winch and the fan?

Nice fab work , but the winch / fan clearance is a red flag for me as with even a slight even rap of the rope it's going to hit / break the plastic fan

It's not the welding that's expensive , it's the machining of the hardened gears , they normally go through at least 3 cutting heads in the process which brings the cost up a lot .

Re: Rear fan trigger points, max coolant running temp.

With the AU Fans you can wire them up with 3 relays so that they operate in the factory dual speed configuration. Run in series to go half speed and then switch to parallel for full speed . You then use a dual switch thermo switch like the Tridant TFS214. I run mine with a 3 way switch as well that ...
