Signed up here a few years ago when I owned a pretty heavily modded sj, but sadly it never saw any action in my hands and never got the bastard running properly, house move etc forced sale before I could get it fixed.

I've now bought a slightly more sensible - mot'd - clean (for a 30y old off roader) 1989 sj410

Seems to have standard drivers side lean, and super stiff suspension.

Found it had a snapped spring on drivers side that wasn't helping so replaced that and just looking to keep it mechanically sound atm (famous last words)

Most importantly, I can fit the bike in the back - just

An eventful week with petrol this week.

Ran out of fuel on about 2 minutes from home, had to get towed home by a berlingo ...

Then filled it up for the first time and found a nice puddle growing under the tank when I was at home

Turns out the combination of 2 small jubilee clips wasn't up to the job, managed to replace it with a big one from the shed without losing to much more fuel, must have been about £5 spilt on my drive though by the time I'd finished :(

Possibly the filler neck tube isn't sealing properly, it's dripping in the right place for that

Yeah that was the problem, put a bigger jubilee clip on and all seems to be ok.
