Get up and go - it is a TD5 so remap it
Auto raid a D2 for its box and ECUs
Boot floor fine as it is a D2
But the chassis will go sometime, fine at the moment (one reason I bought it)
My Discovery 2 auto is more economical than that!
Just remember the following
And keep it forever!
Well I reckon good condition Disco 2s will start to appreciate soon.
Nothing too complicated and still pretty user servicable.
Hmm 2000, so it has a decent engine then!
My 2003 Discovery doesn't normally leak oil.
It did once, just nipped up the canister oil filter a littl emore
But would I buy a new one?
No. And S/H nothing newer than 2006 either.
I have driven a new one around Eastnor, fun but too many nice things missing. Like a nice engine, and I would have prefered an auto. The new dash felt a bit squashed in as well. That Transit lump is crude and rough, and too many gear changes, does it really need a six speed box?
A few minutes later I climbed into my own car, much nicer, it changes gear itself, the engine is much nicer and it was 10 years older, more room, and still a lot of fun. Cost more when new and a lot less now.
No worse off road and at least it won't smack the front prop shaft into the sump, and I don't get Transit jokes.
For a crude toy I would really like a SIII 109 or a Forwards Control. As to 90/110 Defender there are two periods I would buy happily. 110 V8 or any from 2001 to 2006.
So drive head to head, a brand new one and a ten year old enthusiast owned one, and I think a lot of us would choose the latter.
My car has some of the benefits of a Defender (4WD, similar axles, centre diff lock), but some niceties like climate control, airchair like seats, auto (good off road) and an engine which also worked well in the Defender pre Transitification.
Hmm an auto box from a written off Discovey 2 would fit a pre 2007 Defender!
They seem like a load of bollox to me.
And that did over 170.
Yes I do have a more modern OS on as well, but I still have my video editing software which doesn't work with WINE
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Works for me
the BBC stopped showing live races.
Just why do I have to pay a licence?
Lots of adults like Shawn, one of the best things on the BBC
I hate it when the crap wins, Z-Wave have just stated their product is crap, whenever you compare yourself to Vhs you are stating that fact.
Blu Ray win was not a quality war but a capacity battle. But DAT became a back up format.
But a lot of us remember the Vhs Beta war of the 1980s, I still cannot understand how Vhs won when it was obviously worse.
My Sanyo HiFi deck was clunky but the picture and sound was excellent, my £800 Sony deck was the best 1/2" home deck I had ever played with and my old Sony portable is still in use for video capture.
I did find on editing that a 3rd gen Beta recording looked better than a Vhs 2nd gen recording. If you like my final copy looks better than the Vhs edit master.
A lot of these old tapes still look good when captured and burnt to DVD
Only the first one flew, XR220 never got the chance, The production lines were destroyed in rather a hurry.
Only things I can think of would be to get a Concorde back in the air, or one of the two surviving TSR-2 Airframes for their maiden flight.
Just flying over
First time recently we saw this large aircraft in the distance, after some thought, I worked out it HAD to be a Vulcan.
Then more recently it overflew my house 5 times with some small airliners.
Yes just sat in garden and watched
And yes I have a scanner, good for listening to fobs to see if they work!
With some they literally fall apart!
Well done for noticing.
Still the best high power express passenger Diesel there is, 53 years as the best!
High bit rate DVDs can look better than much HD sources.
Das Boot looked fine on a 46" HDTV
My home PC is dual boot but I have not done much on Mint.
I need to try to get our software running under WINE, but getting favourite text editors and database editors running would be nice.
Anyway migrating ia always a long task, we started about 15 years ago, niow some of that early Windows stuff needs rewriting!
Some of it was literally cross compiled into console mode programs, but they can be flakey.
Who is going to rewrite them all?
A lot of authors have retired.
Not really, some old games are still playable.
Then there are applications not rewritten due to retirement.
This would be good for me.
A built in 16 bit layer so those old 16 bit programs can be ran
The same layer allows the above to use IP
The command shell allows MSDOS programs to run
The command shell allows above full screen
Do that than XP can die.
There are still too many tools better in MSDOS than Windows, I can run them on anything XP and earlier provided 32 bit.
I still need to keep an XP PC around for the odd task!
Does that mean it has a long meaningful story?
No they start well meaning then get power hungry.
She is one of the ones I was thinking about in a previous message.
I see what you mean.
Actually, they tend to eventually, but they all go into politics wanting to better the world
>>>>so goodness knows what they might be into
I could well imagine on a few of them.
Didn't have that issue here, only one woman and she was standing for a party I did not want to vote for,
So voted for the best person for the job!
A smile improves a picture
One of the listed MPs in the mens list is a woman, (wrong flag ticked)
William Hague is quite popular
My MP is quite high (top 150 men)
Some of those featured would be 100x better than Ed Millipede for his ex job.
And I am still trying to work out which of the women would be the most fun.*
Top 20 17 Conservatives!!!!!!!!!!!
Some of the middle ranking ones are much nicer looking than some of the higher ranking. But then long flowing hair or shoulder length normally looks nicer than short hair.
* List your thoughts on this!
Ed Balls has been on 33627 times!
I had all three with my current car. Hard work steering it and I went throught the fluid like mad. (oil seal fixed it)
Then ABS and TC failed.
New hub and a reset fixed it.
power steering out was worse!
Or my last car when the crank sensor failed, followed by the alternator (yes a coincidence)
Last time I had a car with this a new crank sensor fixed it
I wanted to enter a competition once, from home (as that was how it was set up), but was restricted to US only.
Other competitions for same game also insisted on a particular control method which I did not get on with, two control schemes, the most popular with top end players was not allowed. I do not know why as normal controllers had aim assist, the motion controllers did not.
I was in top 1%
in this class of car.
To me this is the white goods of cars, when people discuss Mondeos, these, Vectras and the like, I actually think choosing a new oven was more interesting*
* Bosch double built under for those interested
Oh and I have chatted with someone who has travelled at 152mph on the GWML
A real boffin no less!
And travel on his railway
I still think the GWML is his greatest acheivement, still used today with 125mph trains, no realignment needed, just right to begin with.
Also allowed steam to maintain some of the fastest regular schedules in the 30s
And Royal Albert Bridge is a national monument!
I would rather MS won against Murdoch
Currently solar power is not relevant in the UK, generate power when you don't need it.
Now you could even be off grid.
Storing you daytime collected power for the evening seems a good idea to me.
Most dangerous thing in a filling station are starter motors, they spark, a lot.
The problem with DRLs was that the EU mandated they had to be seen and had to dazzle.
The old Volvo sidelights were much better
I HATE DRLs
Really dazzling sometimes, especially at dusk when headlamps should be on, headlamps are a lot less dazzly than DRLs
With the ECU cars the answer is Hawkeye or Nanocom.
I had intermittant 3 Amigos, the only thing which fixed t was clearing with Hawkeye, it has behaved ever since. Sensors all OK, wiring all OK.
I do have a spare SLABS ECU but loath to swap due to calibrating the suspension.
With newer cars a code reader like the above two is essential.
Found out that aftermarket MAFs are crap by monitoring the air flow, cleaned the original and now OK, the one I fitted made the car flat.
Ny previous car was OBD2 compliant, gearbox played up, the reader I used on that car said selector switch, used to get to work until repaired (not a fan or gearbox repairs in the snow) was by resetting error codes when they occured. Even discovered new gears like lock up second. Or pulled lock up top from around 300rpm.
I would say that with a code reader the D2 is as maintainable as an early car.
There is an argument about this, when did they stop making repairable Land Rovers.
To some the end of the series.
To others the end of the TDi300.
Some the Transitification of the Defender.
D2 injector loom
How else can they get signals to the uint injectors?
Easy just to replace when necessary, not a bad job. Just annoying, but the design does work.
Sun roofs. Mine had a broken pipe, now dry inside
