Re: Broke my front pinion

That is a strange place to break. I would suspect it was driven with a bad u-joint for a period of time and that put stress on the pinion shaft. The pinions are a lot stronger than anything else in the axle. Normally those 10 spline diffs break the short side halfshaft or the cross pin in the diff.

Re: windscreen washer reservoir / bottle - Series 2

If you want to stay Land Roverish, get a Defender one. They have ones that are 4 liters with room for a couple of pumps. The Series ones are pretty crappy. If you are in Calgary, it should be not hard finding a used one in the area. If you don't care about using LR parts, go to pick n pull and wander.

Re: Andrew Goh is having a few issues in Skagway

You can disconnect the cable from underneath and then shift manually.

It could also be the shift interlock solenoid preventing it. Either the solenoid is broken or the neutral sensor for the transmission is not working.

You can remove the solenoid. It is four bolts and it pops right out.
