How much play should there be in the diff of a Salisbury Axel. We took the diff pan off the Defender 110 to have a look, from what other's are saying this looks to be normal. The other good news is there were no lumps of metal in the oil that came out or sat in the pan, the gears and teeth look good as well
Ever wondered how many Land Rover's there are still on the road? Well I did some digging and it turns out the DVLA publish the figures. Next time you think of breaking a Land Rover for parts remember there are not that many left.
Since we entered the 2018 Santana Trophy we thought we better get some off-road time in and test the equipment, people & the Land Rovers. We chose Salisbury Plain because it's roughly the same distance for all of us to get to and because there is plenty of space to get off-road.
Taking the bleed hose off to check it, although we had no idea what it did we thought it best to check it. Looks like the hoses are not meant to be removed from the injector, we guess it’s a throw away part. Well what do you know, as Andy squeezed the pipe like it was a teenager with acne and out came a oozing stream of a clay like substance. I guess that was why nothing was passing through it.
