    V8 county ute

    The auto shifter is nearly done, I need to get the electrical side sorted with the lights to the console and park inhibitor switch, so more parts chasing.
    But Iíve been doing some work on the heater, the car came with the air con and heater in one which wasnít the best.
    So changing to standard defender heater , bought of gumtree.
    A few new brackets and wiring.
    Sorry no photos.
    But some of the hard line heater hoses had rusted on the ends, so I trimmed them off and put a flare on the end with gradually increasing the size of a socket and using a bfh to coerce the pipe
    Also made up a battery hold down brace
    Iíll have to spend some money and buy some new heater hosesV8 county ute
    As I canít make them

    Been busy in the shed most nights, although a bit slack on the photos.
    Pulled the speedo down, cleaned up and refitted.
    Heater fan switch required a new custom loom.
    I was chasing a Trunion for the heater cables, it was looking like $80 from the UK, stuff that Iíll make one

    I was then looking in my tub of assorted crap when I found an original oneV8 county ute

    So the heater is good.
    The wipers were running a bit slow so pulled the motor off cleaned up , some 800 wet and dry on the contact area and some electrical cleaner.
    Ta da. Maybe another 37 years and 500,000 klms.
    A new accelerator cable in today ď thanks to MarioĒ and time to knock off.
