    Will Rover 3.5 V8 engine from SD1 fit to LT95?

    you cant beat 3.5 on carbs best v8😀

    i was thinking more gearbox you know v8 will fit but gearbox is different? thats why sometimes you need an adapter plate, so we want to see pictures 😂

    Wash/wipe wiring advice please

    Hi Ralph - I've got a new stalk on it - only a month old to replace the other one so pretty sure its not the culprit (I couold be wrong!) but tomorrow if the sleet stops I'll pull it apart and have a look. If the stalk (as above) proves ok I'll splice in two new wires! Thanks chaps.

    Pop the end cap of the left stalk off & make sure the copper strips are clean, don't loose the spring, the 2 copper fingers can be touched together to get the motor to run, my 110 is a 1989 vehicle too.

    Ah right, often more than meets the eye when there's "history". Just a case of plod on through then, having said that, there should be no issue with wiring direct and isolating the original wires as you've suggested.

    I heard there's other people with CNC machines out there...

    Its a1989 110 (was 19J now 200tdi). No fancy TD5 gubbins! It has been very reliable - but I recently got in about the front end to weld in two new footwells, and a repair panel across the lower windscreen area of bulkhead, which necessitated pulling out the heater and associated bits and although I took my time and was careful its possible that something has got 'strained' whilst that was happening. The vehicle had a 'renovation' and bulkhead replacement done by Liveridge 15 years ago and I'm still finding wiring anomalies caused by their 'cut and crimp' approach to the front wiring loom so its possible there's something in there thats 'fragile' as a consequence of their less than careful workmanship.

    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    Land cruiser are doing the commercial again in the uk. I think you can get a commercial Shogun too. Both might be worth looking at.

    I don't know what vehicle yours is but on the Td5 there a light green/black which feeds the washer pump directly from the switch, also connected to a feed from the wiper delay relay, then from the pump, there is a black earth wire connected via one of the headers. My guess from the way you describe the intermittent nature is the earth may have a bad connection, it's pretty unlikely that a wire in the harness would just break.

    I like that, the orange winch and roof marker lights give a nice contrast against the matt finish with anti aircraft convoy lights. They've certainly used the line-x to full extent.

    You don't own something like that in Russia without being absolutely loaded so I assume it's 100% for posing / PR.

    TBH I think most LR's lend themselves to electrification - strong chassis, lots of space, easy "in" to mount a motor directly to a prop or transfer case.

    Wash/wipe wiring advice please

    My windscreen wash function stopped working. Then started again. Then stopped. So I checked the motor with direct current through two new wires off a spare battery and it worked first time, every time. So I ruled out a motor problem. I fitted a new steering column wiper stalk and initially it did not work, then started to work and seemed fine. But its stopped working again this week. I rechecked motor today, its still working fine. So I'm guessing I have a wiring problem somewhere between stalk and motor. However the wiring sheath with the washer/motor wiring vanishes behind the outer wing, inside the wheel arch and it is unreachable unless I start dismantling the wheel arch which I'd rather avoid. So I've had a look at the stalk and wiring set up and it appears that the two wires that do the business to initiate the wash function are the dark green and light green going into the multiplug connector behind the steering column. When I put my multimeter on those two I can get it to beep as it makes a circuit. My assumption is that if I cut those two wires just before the block connector on the stalk side and connect in a couple of new pieces of wire running direct to the motor I'll have it back to normal. I'm assuming the fused power feed for wipers and wash function comes into the stalk on one of the other wires and the circuit is made there, and there's no other power feed coming into the line anywhere south of it. Am I correct or am I missing something obvious here?

    Alas - google took me to his website and the news that he retired in November last year....

    Untill my 110 got nicked i was gonna keep it for the kids / family car once it had paid for itself. I'm consdiering the D2 donor and an ibex for the same reasons. The platform lends itself well to electrification once the diesels are banned. i'd love a d3 based F8 as they ride real nice and are great off road aswell.

    That'd likely be Gavin at ArtminCNC - he did my 109 badges.

    Funny ain’t it , what some people like and others don’t and no ,I’m not defending it but somebody has stuck all that stuff on there , stood back and presumably thought “perfect” 🤪 I’ve seen pictures of it before and I’m guessing it’s just a show motor with every single accessory possible glued on to show what a particular firm make or stick but Jesus it’s fugly

    14CUX Main and Fuel pump relay operation

    I've read the description of HRW few times and i missed that part but i' checked again and i see where are you coming from, sorry that i contradicted you even though IMO the description is not 100% accurate if it's corroborated with the circuit diagram cos the signal from the IC spilices into the serial data bus from C0233-16 which is not particulary an engine speed signal but maybe it is within the digital input so if you wired them all together with all the inputs you need an engine speed input into the cluster as the tachometer to show you idle and that's a digital 2 pulse/rev signal which is coming from the ECM black plug pin 19 into IC connector C0230 - 15

    I saw that 110, or one closely resembling it, at one of the UK shows a few years ago. Hard to believe you can stack **** so high. It gets so much love on the internet, but it's monstrous. All those additions serve to make it not only ugly but hugely impractical.

    Would it not be battery-voltage based like the old voltage-sensitive switch in RRC's and D1's?

    Rover V8's are all the same bellhousing. Mind you, given the plentiful nature of 3.9 and bigger / newer lumps I'd wonder about fitting a crusty old SD1 lump unless it happens to be a good one.

    ^ This, why bother ruining a RRC with D2 axles, seems a lot of work Vs a different set of wheels?
