hydrogen is coming

DURING a recent meeting of UK Defender owners with factory fitted BMW M52 engines the topic of conversation inevitably turned to fully electric cars. One of the owners is currently having a Volkswagen-approved electric conversion done on his old split screen VW. The conversion is not cheap; in fact you could buy a new Defender for the cost. The reason is not only do they need to use the battery packs and motor from the VW ID.4 but they also need to make changes to the braking and suspension systems. Another Defender 2.8i owner who has had a Porsche from new commented that if an electric conversion was the only way he could keep his Porsche on the road in the future, then he would seriously consider it. Obviously he has…

kingsley holgate’s team to embark on a new expedition with two new defenders

RENOWNED explorer Kingsley Holgate will be putting the new Defender’s technical capabilities through its paces, as he embarks on a year-long transcontinental expedition. The 30,000 km journey will pass through 30 countries, from the southern tip of the African continent to the most northern point of Europe, and then on to the mystical Isle of Anglesey in Wales. Of course, no expedition with Kingsley’s name to it is complete without humanitarian work en route and objectives include eye tests and reading glasses for the elderly in remote areas, the distribution of insecticide-treated mosquito nets to mothers and children, the delivery of two million meals to crèches, educational conservation work near elephant and rhino populations, and the supply of water to communities with shortages. The core Holgate team will be using two expedition-kitted…

Hitch warning I READ with interest the article in Norfolk Garage of December 2021. The tow hitch pictured was of a type with a limited capacity of, I believe 1.5 ton. When new they were painted orange so users would know not to use them above their rated capacity! The tow ball is the same diameter as the more common 3.5 ton so the unknowing later user could inadvertently hook on a heavier trailer which clearly presents a danger of inadvertent detachment. Examination of the tow hitch clearly indicates it is not strong enough to withstand the greater loads involved. The attraction to the innocent purchaser was that the retail price of that type of hitch was less than half of the Dixon Bate type rated at 3.5 tons! The consequences of a…
