Probably sleeving the chain with something, makes more of a rattle against the chequer plate than its self.

Which ebay seller was the lighting from Buff? I'm trying to locate warm white as opposed to the brighter cooler type.

The lights came from techbits uk, the connectors which you'll need if you want to add more lights or shorter lights came from wedo bestdeals. As each 5 metre length has one connector on the end.

Have been side tracked with a rather rusty discovery the last couple of months. But finally got around to changing over to 4.7 diffs. I did the rear one about 3 month's back, as it was the easiest one. And after the advice from a friend drove it for a while just on the rear prop to see if the gearing was ok. Finished the front axle last week, as it needed completely stripping to change everything over. The speedo is under reading now by 5mph, but 55mph (60) is now achievable at just over 3000 revs. It has made such a difference to the smoothness and noise, just dropping the revs and ultimately the props not turning as fast.

While everything was stripped down i added some grease nipples to the track rod ends etc, and replaced the leaking steering damper10453184_10152217344927483_2110108890_n.jpg

Good stuff Buff!

I changed my 1:410 (or whatever) defender gears for the disco 1.222 gears and the reduction in noise is dramatic, makes long runs so much more pleasurable.
