Ahhhh Dan, just caught up with this, gutted for you mate!

Its a shame so close after the rolling road and it looking like you was getting some good fun road use out of it aswell

Oil filter will be going back to the usual place right? It doesn't look too bad there but yeah you might have been strangling the oil press even at low revs if that hose was too small. And as MiniLandy mentioned earlier best you find out what caused this before you knacker the new lump going in just incase it wasn't lump related

Fair play though on sorting it out sooner rather than later - keep at it

Hi Kam.
Going to try and get it back in its original spot, failing that, I will try and mount it as close as possible.
Typical though, I got back from Plymouth yesterday and the 12mm hose was waiting for me, can't help but feel if the service hasn't been so slow I'd have fitted the correct hose and triple checked everything, possibly preventing my problem, but, until I diagnose the problem, I can't say exactly what the issue was.
Never mind!
Spent this morning going over some prices and trying to get the best deals I can on parts. It's amazing the price difference on the exact same parts from different suppliers.

Yeah spending the time checking everywhere does help big time, always find a deal

Just been thinking, my oil pressure gauge is the digital type, so I can see exactly how much it differs with each pedal load or if I'm just feathering it on idle, so even if you think the engine is taking it easy just taking it around the block the pressure is changing quite a lot on the move

Hope you sort it

Bonus! Got home today to have a letter from one of my credit cards offering 12 months interest free on balance transfers.
Needless to say, I am more than happy to leave my savings where they are and take my credit card up on this offer!

Starting from the bottom!
New OE water pump
New OE oil pump
Baffled sump
New updated Land Rover oil ladder
Federal Mogul mains
New OE thrust washers
Lightweight flywheel
Crank, conrods, 160 pistons, clutch cover all balanced.
Mahle Motorsport big ends
New Goetze liners
New Goetze piston rings
MLS head gasket
New OE head bolts
Ported & flowed VVC head
Piper VVC blanking kit
Piper BP285H solid cams

Will probably upgrade to Jenvey DTH throttle bodies at some point which is why I went with the 285 cam, apparently its perfect with throttle bodies.
