RHD walk through - heater cables?

Anyone fitted LHD heater cables to a RHD? We're they the correct length? Some suppliers are listing one heater cable for all models, which must be incorrect advertising.

Re: Head failure - Valve stretch?

If the head gets too hot the valve seat can fail. I've had the seats mushroom into the head before. Engine still ran. Got poor MPG but still drove okay.

Re: Rear Hub Seals

Where is it leaking from?

How much oil are you putting in the reduction boxes / gearbox?

What torque are you doing the nut up too?

Re: 100A Leasure Battery

Feedback on that SuperBatt Battery listed above.

We've had one fitted for the summer and we've come to the conclusion its not as good as the old battery that came out..... So will be refitting the old battery.
