#1 by 123hotchef , Thu Feb 06, 2020 11:42 am

spent the last few days working on truck 3, had a good engine bay clean, all new belts changed the fuel and air filters going take it for a drive and drop the oil and change the oil filter tonight.
its had various new bushes, I need to fix the diff lock, sort out a few interior bits and some electrical problems then It will be a great truck.

Because you like breaking them before fixing? (and do you have halfords/parts shares?)

just changed the alternator on this truck what a ball ache so much easier on a body lifted truck

also removed and fixed the rear diff lock compressor.

just ordered fluids for the boxes and diffs will get them swapped out then i have a couple of cv boots to change and it should be ready to mot oh i have ordered 2 fog lamp bulbs they were blown not sure if it is a mot fail but cant risk it

also need to fit the remote central locking kit and sort out the locking issue wit the drivers door, the 4wd lamp dont work at all now could be lamp i guess

Just ordered 2 new door solenoids to fix the locking issue
Today is MOT day I hope it passes.
