    I never thought about raising your speaker performance like this. Who knew?

    I was wondering why my wife’s Disco doesn’t seem any faster. Guess I’ll remove it in the morning. 8(

    Well I guess this is snag #3 in the 4.6 rebuild.

    Well that’s better. I guess 6 of you now know that my daughter can build a barrel composter. Lol

    Well I guess this is snag #3 in the 4.6 rebuild.

    Well that’s weird. I deleted all but 3 of the pics. Those others did not show up in the preview. Hum.

    Hey. Thanks. That’s what I will do.

    Well I guess this is snag #3 in the 4.6 rebuild.

    So I’d this how the new timing chain sets look for a 4.6 Bosch motor? I was ready to install the cam and finish the motor today. Opened the box with the timing kit and this is what was in there. It looks cast but not finished. The chain doesn’t sit in all the teeth the same on the cam sprocket...

    TFL Defender experience

    Pretty sure I said that back in the 80’s when electronic fuel injection first started to come on production cars. It was a pain. Since about 2000, I wouldn’t think of running a carb on anything. Lol. And since I am in the general section, I hope you all have the best Thanksgiving that you can...

    TFL Defender experience

    I guess my point was that I feel like auto makers in general have blown right past the “ sweet spot” with electronic systems in cars. Where there was enough electronic systems to make the vehicle more reliable and better to drive. Now it’s just too much and just creating more problems for the...

    TFL Defender experience

    IMO, I feel that LR has become more reliable but also more complicated so the two cancel themselves out. If you don’t work on your own rigs , I think you would feel that they are less reliable. I think all manufacturers are making vehicles that are too complicated with too many systems. They...

    I never thought about raising your speaker performance like this. Who knew?

    I don’t know. Probably so the speaker company could claim that the speakers had bigger magnets then they did and pocket the savings. The odds of someone actually taking the enclosure apart to check, while in a period where they could get their money back is probably pretty low.

    I never thought about raising your speaker performance like this. Who knew?

    My neighbor just gave me some trashed speaker enclosures. I took them for the magnets but I had no idea what I was in for! These were exactly how I pulled them from the enclosure. I didn’t know that if you want a better speaker you just glue more magnets on the back. Sad and funny. But mostly sad.

    I don’t watch too much YouTube but a coworker said I should check this out. They purchased a D2 and an LR3 and had great luck with them. So they purchased an new Defender. Wow, what a 1980’s English car experience they are having. The new Defender isn’t my favorite, but I hope for JLR’s sake...

    You should really look at the wiring between the from the fuel pump forward. Do you have a constant 12v for a few seconds at the pump when you are cranking I would guess that if you hot wired the fuel pump and then you tried to start it, you could rule out anything else but the fuel pump wiring...

    What do you think of....

    Even with the lights off, that is hard to look at. Not my cup of tea. I would want to see the black out panel on the vehicle to have an opinion.

    Flex plate 4.6 Is this normal??

    There is also another line that is suspect. Either way, I have a heavy duty one coming from Ashcroft and should be here Monday.

    RC car/truck for kids

    I agree with HiSPL. I insisted that my son get a crawler to work on his motor skill and finesse. It was just too slow to keep his interest. He was 8. It also lasted longer than I would have thought, spending 80% of its time running under water. At age 10 he got the trophy truck for Christmas...

    RC car/truck for kids

    My son has been running this rat rod trophy truck for a few years. No problem getting parts but not that many have need broken. He is also amazingly hard on it. The other cool thing is that it is a copy of a real truck that a guy in Washington built. That’s all I have for you. I don’t know much...

    Flex plate 4.6 Is this normal??

    Hey. Thanks for all the comments. I am returning that one and ordering the heavy duty one from Ashcroft. I’ll keep my fingers crossed. I miss being able to walk in somewhere and look at the thing I was purchasing. I could see it and yup or nope. Whether it’s Rover parts or stereos, clothes. I...

    Flex plate 4.6 Is this normal??

    In the post above , that is a brand new one, never installed. Here is the old one that was removed with the motor. It’s flat but has some weird lines from the crank holes.that why I want to replace it while the motor is out. I have never seen a new one but would assume that it would be...

    Flex plate 4.6 Is this normal??

    Since the motor is out, I figured it was a good time to replace the flex plate since mine has some odd lines on it. The new flex plate is not flat like the old one. It a genuine part from a reputable source. So is this how they all are?
