Borrowed a universal hydraulic puller but Mahindra's don't appear to be included in the "universal" bit. Wouldn't fit!! Are there any alternatives fo...

Re: Insurance contacts

Just insured mine with Lancaster. Very helpful. Told them I'd ripped it apart and reverted to military specs., No problems.
£150 fully comp, no No Claims, 3000 miles per year. Well worth a chat with them.. :good:

Re: Fuel tank

Just read all the posts on the fuel tank problems. Mines leaking and in a pretty shabby state so I bought a CJ2-3B replacement. If anyone has fitted one of these I would appreciate some tips. Problems I have found so far, fuel line connection into the tank are different size to the original and in a...

Greetings

Hi all. Been with the register since April 2012 but never got to the intro bit. I'm Jon or Balders, which ever. Got a Brave in the process of a renovation. Looked like it had hit a mine with all the holes under the trim when I pulled it off. Great fun. Speak soon.

Rear hub removal

The joys of re-building. I am trying to get the rear brake hubs off. I believe they are on a tapered shaft. I have managed to get a 3 claw hub puller on and really wound the pressure up. Hasn't moved an inch. Anyone got the answer to my prayers :beg: Thanks

HAZARD FLASHER SWITCH

Hi all. Slowly restoring my brave. Pulled the horrible plastic dash out and as everyone has said, wot a nightmare for wiring. Hazard flasher switch was a casualty. Does any one have the wiring - pin connector sequence for the back of the switch. Ripping my hair out. Been at it for days. :banghead:
