"Slippery on ice? "  That's what studded snow tires were all about!  Tough on concrete roads but great on ice.

"Slippery on ice? "  That's what studded snow tires were all about!  Tough on concrete roads but great on ice.

Like I wrote, I removed the studded ones and but on more regular tyres for summer, the next day we had a damn snowstorm. Studded are great on compacted iced snow and pure ice. Regular M+S ( Mud and Snow ) is useless in these conditions. You can drive, but if you start skidding you lose all control of the car. Studs give you some control over the skid. 

 

More or less, you just need experience driving in severe snow conditions and that is it. Think things trough, keep your cars innertia and mass transfer under control and it is all good. In estonia it is not strange to see old people powersliding ( drifting ) RWD cars around gravel roads.

I allmost killed the car today. I somehow had missed tightening nuts on driver side rear wheel and it had worked itself free. If  you lose one of the wheels while driving driving @ 110 km/h you will flip it for sure.Nuts where still on but abot 1/2 inch open. The wheel was still on the car but on the last threads. This time went around the car and realy cranked these things tight,

This was a weekend.

First the car got to a milestone (kilometerstone) - 333 333km on the clock.

large_29701009_ybZs.jpg

 

Next  got to my summerhouse. Nice springtime in here. Potatos, carrots, unions planted. Still need to plant peas, beans, mustard and some flowers for bees to gave something to enjoy in the summer time.

large_29701011_KKEr.jpg

large_29701013_J7al.jpg

large_29701015_uuop.jpg

PS. The white small thing is my moms Ford Fiesta.

 

And  on the sunday got my way to start fixing my Landy.First - rear suspention upgrade with heavy duty standard height stuff and new poly pushes to go with it.

large_29701017_bjfr.jpg

Standard worn out suspention.

 

large_29701019_gNQ5.jpg

Lifting her up to get a good access to stuff needed.

 

large_29701021_Q0oZ.jpg

Add some stands and remove the wheels ( wheel go under the car for added safety)

 

large_29701023_e8IZ.jpg

large_29701029_omJN.jpg

Standard vs heavy duty

 

large_29701025_QwU8.jpg

large_29701027_jgXZ.jpg

Installed with heavy duty shocks to compliment the springs. Poly pushes on the shocks also. Lots of WD40 to get the polts moving.

 

large_29701031_pHLk.jpg

Things done on the rear. Well the original ones where some what exhausted, as this is the standard height kit. A lift about  5cm (2 inches).

 

But the day didn't end there. On the drive home all the suddenly loud clanking sound started unde the car. Tought - what the hell did happen to the gearbox, transfercase, diff, driveshaft. The sound was so lound I pulled the car over to the side of the road and again went under the car to investigate.

large_29701035_NOa8.jpg

 

The result was this bad boy.

large_29701033_KFow.jpg

It is a rubber sleave that protects the driveshaft spindle that gives needed play in it when offroading. That just broke apart and hit the underside of the floor making the noise. Had nothing else to do than cut it of. Now I need to find a new one.

Got to do the front to. Not a lot of pics, as I was outside and started to rain. Didn't want my phone to get water and oil damage.

Changed the old cracked and rusted oilsump to new used one. Also new heavyy duty springs and shocks to with poly pushes. 

And got trough the annual inspection with good results. Everything was OK for the car to be safe and used on the road. 

large_29703119_dXjZ.jpg

Liftoff

 

large_29703121_6FVi.jpg

The old stuff on the car.

 

large_29703123_W1Ba.jpg

Next day,, this is how the car sits now. Nice high and tight. No more excess suspention play.

 

large_29703125_YzCS.jpg

New stuff on. Just front panhard rod needs new poly pushes (I have these also waiting for install).

Managed to get all my cars on one picture. Renault Master is a new addition. Wanted something with more space. It's a 9 seater minibus with 2.8L turbo diesel. Uses less fuel than my 4x4. The Land Rover will be on sale soon. Just need to fix some minor problems. Like leaking exhaust sticky handbrake and leaking front crank seal.

 

Behing the 4x4 is a Peuget Boxer van also 2.8L turbo diesel.

well, my van sprung a coolant leak.

large_29755977_YYtm.jpg

Had to tear it down a bit to check what is wrong.

First removed the bumper. Broke all the bolts that held it in place. They where all rusted up real bad.

large_29755975_KyLv.jpg

 

Next of with everything else that was stuck on the front part holdin in the radiator and the intercooler.

large_29755979_rcGK.jpg

 

and found the cause of the leak.

large_29755981_KF0r.jpg

 

Ordered some new parts and this is how it now sits, faceless "frog eater"
