Browsing gumtree for the millionth time this week, saw this picture on the home screen and did a double take.

He's been taught to keep swapping out parts until it works again.

WHAT THE FUH :stop: :stop: :stop: :stop: :stop:

This is why you NEVER take your LandRover to a bloody workshop...

What freakin Eejit tries to check a sparkplug against a front input shaft flange of an LT230?

FFS!

Actually, I was mistaken - he is changing the wheel plugs.

You know when you see racing cars and their brake discs are glowing red? It's because they have really good wheel plugs.

If you want the same effect on your car, you just need to change your wheel plugs to a higher heat range.

I have a limited number of high heat range performance wheel plugs, PM me if interested. $99 for the set + p&h.

Just be sure to grease the wheel leads really well, where the lead connects onto the top of the wheel plug needs to be able to spin freely otherwise the lead will wrap itself around the axle and you'll be up for an expensive set of replacement wheel leads.

I had to share that on AULRO's Facebook page - It was way too good an opportunity to pass up -

That is quite possible as it took me sometime to find this back ground picture after someone alerted me to the image being altered,
