    pwm iac

    Is the ECU modified to drive the PWM valve? Did you build it, or did you buy it from somewhere already built?

    Deep water

    IIRC on a 2.5TD engine its a sump off & disconnect con rod cap from its parent rod/piston, cylinder head off & piston/rod comes out the top.

    Nice home-made 40T forging hydraulic press

    There's something quite satisfying watching the square tube get neatly folded up! Very good Steve

    Deep water

    Filter was dry. Will I get away with either buying new injector or swapping two over to confirm if head needs to come off (seem reasonably priced and easier than getting to test place for me and don’t have kit to do compression test)? if it’s a con rod, is that engine out or can can I do in situ? thanks Sam

    headlight bulb upgrade options

    I fitted the Osrams to my Capri and they are brilliant. Fitted them to the 110 and they’ve hardly made a difference so I think I need to do the wiring mod to improve the supply.

    Bilstein b6 bushes

    From memory they are the same size as Defender anti roll bar bushes. I was disappointed by how quickly the original Bilstein bushes, both top and bottom, failed

    Deep water

    It sounds like a bent con-rod on no4 , compression test then remove the head and it will be clear from the difference in height at TDC compared to the other three . If it happens on a Tdi it usually means crank out to remove it from the bottom as when bent the con-rod will not go up the bore attached to the piston cheers Steve b

    Deep water

    Remove & have the tested at a diesel injection place.
  11. As per title.. We're getting to the stage where the Series Hybrid is coming back on the road and I could do with a diff lock. I hace a Defender diff with an Ascroft Locker in it sitting at the shelf but I'm not sure I want that as I'll have an upgearing due to the higher ratio and that is in all gears - and I like 1st Low to be justthat : slow.. Let me have your suggestions please ?

    Deep water

    Was the air filter dry? I would suggest a compression test. If any water got in you may have bent a rod.

    Bilstein b6 bushes

    I contacted them directly and they sold me a full set - they were super helpful and a really good price. It started off with me emailing them and they said:

    Centre seat brackets

    No, because there is no need to support the drivers seat, that has it's sliding base so cannot be linked to the static centre seat. Regards.

    Deep water

    How would I check that? Wasnt any in sumo when I drained the oil i will pop them out this week and have a look see.

    Deep water

    Did any water get inside the engine ? could be a partially siezed injector, maybe they need a service/recondition/test, white smoke sounds like unburnt fuel in cylinder & coming from a poorly sealing injector.

    Centre seat brackets

    Great informative reply, thank you very much. Bit expensive aren’t they 😳 just to clarify, will it need a double type bracket on either side of the centre seat? Ill start my searching!

    Bilstein b6 bushes

    I have searched around (without any luck) about bushes for bilstein b6 defender rear shocks. The upper bushings on my truck are starting to disintegrate with less than a one year of usage . I have original bushes (NRC5593), but they are way too big. Also the bilstein uses two-part bushing on upper eye not single thread roller style. Is there a part number or any keyword I could use to find suitable bushes?

    Deep water

    Good evening all So I recently found myself in some much deep water than expected (long story, with hindsight was a very poor idea but I am where I am and learning from it). Just about made it through but only just really had to labour on the way back out. Since then it’s (1989 2.5td 90) been putting out allot of white smoke from exhaust. Much more lumpy at start putting out allot of smoke which when warm clears under acceleration but smokes rest of the time getting heavier as you stop and come to idle. So I have checked no signs of water in fuel (checked in tank, changed filter), oil (dropped checked and changed) or air (filter housing fairly oily from breather but not awash). Had a new boost diaphragm to fit as suspect hole which changed alongside (thanks to walk through on here by Les, thank you Les). Since I have done the above I have otice that when I come to idle there is a slight misfire type sound at the exhaust (can’t hear in engine). When engine running if I skacken the nut to the fuel line nut to each injector engine act as expected and fairly uniformly for the front three but back one has less dramatic impact on running. please could anyone offer advice on what i should be checking next or what my issue may be? thanks in advance Sam

    DEFENDER 200tdi turbo failure

    I replaced the internal cartridge on my turbo after it leaked just like yours I also had a fair bit of play in the spindle so thought I had nothing to lose in trying one. had no issues at all or special tools to swap it out, the only slight issue I had was getting to bolts undone on the housing as there isn't a huge amount of room in there and I was paranoid that using an open-ended spanner would round off the bolts as they were in there pretty tight. In the end, I soaked them in penetrating oil and resorted to a heat gun to get them shifted and all was well. Since re-installation, it has been perfect, couldn't be happie3r and saved myself a fortune. I used these guys: https://www.turborebuild.co.uk/webshop/prod_5497835-Uprated-HYBRID-Stage-1-Turbo-CHRA-Core-465171-465175-Land-Rover-Defender-Discovery-200tdi-Turbocharger-Cartridge.html
  24. the grass was greasy in the paddock one morning and i had my federals 595rsr’s fitted.... couldnt actually get it into the pits. got stuck 10feet into the paddock. .... it was down hill! 😭
  25. Easiest way would be to use a meter and check which contacts connect to what at each of the positions on your existing switch and then check that the new switch operates the same way.The trouble is that different models use different switches and if your vehicle has had the switch changed at some point (to suit the different engine possibly) then how do you know you have bought the correct replacement?Although probably not relevant to this query, a perfect example of the differences in ignition switches is in the glow-plug operation.On early vehicles the glow-plugs were operated by manually holding the switch in the "heat" position for however long was required however on later models this was done automatically by the timer relay so there was no need to hold the switch in that position.

    Kenlowe hotstart cable or equivalent

    I thought Hubble was just a brand name. I used the term caravan plug as most people recognise them as such. You can run the lead off a standard 3 pin plug and socket as it is only pulling 13 amp, but I would recommend an outlet with a built in rcd. unit similiar to this https://www.screwfix.com/p/british-general-13a-2-gang-rcd-switched-plug-socket-metal-clad/4714p#_=p

    SWB 10 inch brakes snail cam kit fitting?

    I didn't know there were genuine? These are by EAC, who have always been good. The set up is different, but the parts feel well made. I'll spray them with wax before I finish, they should last a good while.
