  2. Eurocarparts are the easiest local place for me to buy fluids and oils easily at a reasonable price. I need some coolant for the D3 - they reccomend their orange coolant for the TDV6 but the red is cheaper. Their website is rubbish and the only thing it tells you under the specs is the colour! The colours tell me nothing (and I dont think they are standardised anyway!). Anyone know the difference? I can just make out OAT on the label of the red coolant and this is cheaper than the orange. These are the two: https://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Land+Ro...amp;000397 https://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Land+Ro...amp;000397

    speedo drive gears

    Puma has the Blue 20T gear as well, though as it has an electronic speedo, the only reason it's the same is because there's no reason to change it. There are (I think) 5 gears available, but 20T is the limit. 11% fast sounds about normal to me. Remember they all read fast as it's illegal for it to under-read, and there is some variation from unit to unit. Easiest (but not cheap) option is to change to a Td5 speedo and reprogram it to read closer to the correct value.

    Read it again.
  6. Reading the advert it seems they claim they are lighter which allows it to spool up quicker

    Ok! So next part number!! Anyone know what this support plate part number is? I can't find it in the parts catalogue anywhere!
  8. I've made several with a mig welder and stainless tubes, bends, clamps and suchlike from here: https://exhaustpartsuk.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=88 Get yourself some stainless mig wire too. It'll want more power than mild, and you'll need to travel faster to avoid blowing holes, but it's quite possible to get some really nice beads on butt welds with a bit of practice.

    ^ What Bowie said, check your system for restrictions. It could be down to the skinny nylon air-line not flowing enough air, seen that before in the workshop - big industrial compressor, big windy gun, but not able to undo a nut because the air-line was a cheapo one - 5+ metres of restrictive line knocks the air delivery down significantly, like voltage drop in skinny wires you end up with 100PSI in the air tank and 50psi in the gun when you pull the trigger.
  10. What are you proposing to make it out of?

    speedo drive gears

    Which gear is fitted to the Puma defenders? They've got to be on the same gearing from the speedo point of view, as it's after the main gearbox. 1.2 LT230 and 235.85/16 tyres.

    Was just a thought.

    Early defender 110 second row seats

    Yes, that's what I believe too, if you get them from Land Rover. However, if you search anything on line it doesn't show or mention anything about the floor plate and fixings being included. 🤔

    Early defender 110 second row seats

    as all those parts are within the box for item 1 the floor ring is part of the seatbelt fixings that come with the seatbelt, so the floor ring does not have a seperate part number.
  18. Right, got a chance to look at this over the weekend and managed the few hours on Sunday when it was raining. The rest of the day, both before and afterwards was lovely blue skies. Anyway. This is looking good. Fitted newer 300tdi pump so had to sleeve the existing pipes with rubber to fit but so far this morning it started almost instantly. It didn't start on the very first turn but almost immediately afterwards. I'm happy with that and it's a huge improvement on it sitting cranking away for 5 - 15 seconds like it was before. Thanks for all your help and advice.

    Early defender 110 second row seats

    I'm slowly trying to find parts for seats and seat belts for a 1994 110 300tdi CSW that had the second row seats and pretty much all the floor fixings removed for the seat fixings and seat belts. I'm getting there, but would appreciate some help on this part. The seat belt buckle receiver is a clip type, part number MXC5521, which is in the yellow square in the pic below. Can anyone work out what the part number is for the floor mounted fixing that it clips onto, in the green circle below, or the yellow circles in the other pics? Any help in sousing this part would be greatly appreciated!

    Brake Shuttle valve

    mike. my 110 had that valve and i had brake problems so i took it out and made 2 small link pipes. may have it somewhere still there is no need to change to a 300 master as 1) its only a pressure differentiate indicator 2) you still got 2 circuits off the master so if 1 fails you still have 1 brake circuit.

    Rover 4.6 V lumpy idle then revs by itself

    I seem to remember that the stepper allows air from a port coming in from the main throat of the plenum (concentric to the stepper hole) to take a 90 degree turn through a small port on the inboard side. You'll need to jam something in to block both holes- I think I wrapped a drill bit in insulation tape until it was a snug fit when I set my base idle. This was all quite a while ago though so I may be talking total piffle.

    i did have a read but im on 235/85/16 and cant find any other options as need less teeth on drive gear

    Intercoolers and other bits

    I don’t think they would western as you need to measure the temperature from inside the intercooler inlet and outlet pipes, you’d need a couple of 3m thermo couples and a machine to read them like I got there’s a photo on the previous page cost about £30 all in . I’m on the iPad so can’t post links off the eBay app but if you search K type thermocouple they’ll pop up .
