The 096 has the same oomph as a 017, just a smaller footprint. I could've chucked an 017 in the Jaaag as the battery hold down clamp is on the bottom edge.

I last used them about 7 years ago. I ordered these parts mostly for the Pug at the same time as the Landy parts on the 16th June. Slow to be dispatched, they finally turn up today. They appear to have got the order correct.

Verdict: Some good prices, but don't use them if you're in a hurry.

Did that light fitting just get forgotten about in the end then? Those things went out with the ark so a potential fire hazard?

HONDA JIZZ UPDATE

When I went out Saturday to do some Land Rover spannering, I noticed the return of an exhaust rattle. The heat shield behind the middle silencer had come adrift again and was hanging down at the rear and thus bouncing up and down onto the exhaust pipe. I'd already fixed it before with a penny washer, but even that had given up its function.

So off with the thing and find one of the front attachments needed looking at too.

Then realised that was upsidedown and so folded it in reverse

I might replace it eventually, but for the time being I leave it there for the NCT man to have a snigger at next test.

Still wired in rubber? That type of baton holder has been obsolete for years, their house insurance will be totally invalid if something does happen.

As I don't have a 2¹⁄₁₆" AF socket lying around, I've had to get a 52mm one for this LR job I will catch up on. I hear it doesn't really matter in this application that it's a lame ½" drive.

Land Rover update

After finally completing* the bathroom. I've been allowed out again, so LR spannering has recommenced.

Armed with a 52mm socket, I was able to attack the stupid 52mm hex hub covers. For whatever reason a PO had fitted heavy duty flanges.

I needed to get three of these off, two to change the front discs and 1 to change a rear axle seal. The front OS popped okay with fat man on a 2ft breaker bar. The other two didn't want to know. Fucking stupid as they don't need to be megatight.

Went back home for a rattle gun. That eventually got the NS rear shifted. However the front NS was putting up a fight. It resisted the following:
  • Fat man on a 2ft breaker bar.
  • Fat man with a 450Nm rattle gun.
  • Fat man with a MAPP torch and a rattle gun.
  • Fat man on some large Stilsons

  • Fat man on a slightly extended large Stilsons.
  • Fat man on a slightly extended breaker bar.

That ended in the inevitable

Although I have a new problems now. After dealing with next two nuts which some fucking animal in the past had been at with a chisel, I got a flange headache. Out of the 5 bolts holding the flange onto the hub. 2 are shorter than the should be. Animal looks to have gone mad with sealant on flanges and used it also to stick the broken bolts back in their respective holes for cosmetic purposes. So I have some extracting, tapping and new 10.9 bolts to fit.
