Drilled through the viscous fan unit and put longer bolts with nyloc nuts through yo lock it, works a treat! Also had to remove the heater as the inlet pipe has cracked and leaks like a Dutch damn without s small lads finger in it!! So have joined the heater hoses together for now, just did my road fund tax on line too :good:

So, who has had springs re tempered? Am sure there was a thread a year or two about springs, but I can't find it now :scratch:
Am thinking of taking them to Paddington Springs. Have used them in the past, or will WW2 springs fit I wonder :blink: as may have a couple somewhere, if I diddnt sell them :beg:

with all the extra tinwork on it, you might need to bung a couple of extra leaves in each spring pack to beef it up!

The jeep came with 4 seats in the back and now only has 2 so the weight of 2 passengers is more than the weight of metal added, it just has a slant to the drivers side( as per lots of jeeps) so want to get it levelled out :good:

Land Rovers have different rated front springs for left and right !
I'm going to get the springs on my Marksman reset however a quick look shows new pattern Jeep CJ5 items, if they fit, could actually be cheaper. We have a firm that resets, repairs and makes lorry spring just 3 miles away and they are happy to do small jobs so maybe you might have somewhere similar near to you.

Thanks Paul, I will look in to it. I'm only 18 miles or so from Padington springs and I know they will do it, will put a post on the Tech thread to see if anyone knows more about other springs that may fit :good:

Hey Doug, did you and mates build this Warthog?

Who ever it was did a nice job - I wonder what frame and running gear they used.

Cortana looks hot too! :swoon:
