  1. Well on with putting Richards chassis onto my sons 1997 110 and thought you may like to see what it was like under the cross member !! I have rechassised both my older 200 tdi's but they weren't tis bad at that point. New chassis painted and ready for engine etc
  2. delayed reply as it hasn't happened for three days, as soon as I ordered relays then all seemed fine so not yet installed. Steve - the fuel gauge was going to full as soon as ignition on - I also noticed that with ignition off the fuel gauge went to full when the sidelights were turned on. The fault may have disappeared when I removed and replaced the relays to check the part numbers so I hope it was just a poor connection but don't begin to understand why it caused those symptoms - will put in new relays and hope that is the end of problem. Thanks for your help
  3. Thanks Part no seems to be AMR 2548 - YWB 10027 - there are two on my 110 plus the wiper relay and the flasher relay
  4. Thanks for response, will get one ordered, assume this is part PRC 8230 ? Don't understand why this would cause the fuel gauge to show full when the tank is almost empty ?
  5. Came to start 1997 110 this morning and when key turned appeared dead except oil and charge lights came on but no turn over of engine, strangely the fuel gauge went off the scale although the tank is virtually empty, temp gauge stayed at zero. Horn also dead but clock still running. Went back after few minutes and started up and ran perfectly. Just tried again and dead as before. Any ideas please where to start ?
  6. Sounds like hydraulics to me
  7. Yes they are certainly there on both my Defender 200 tdi's, I lost one and had to order more; part no. LJC100270
  8. I've had that happen and caused by fuel lines becoming loose at connections to the tank
  9. Is the noise there when you are moving or only when stationary after a run ? If the latter then does it go when you depress the clutch ?
  10. Fuel Lift Pump ?
  11. Yes, in my case, both my Defenders do this when the flange is pulled off.
  12. Argeed, but use proper penetrating oil e.g. Penal not WD40 and leave overnight and I have never had a problem.
  13. Why are the four bolts still in ?
  14. Thanks Chaps
  15. I have to replace the rear crank oil seal on my 90 200tdi. I am shortly going to change the gearbox, is it practicle to replace this seal with the engine in situe and the gearbox out ? Do I have to remove the flywheel housing ? Finally, where online can I get a genuine Dowty seal ? Thanks
