  1. Had a side-hinged tailgate (with centre rib) & swingaway carrier on my 90 for 20-years now, WH type. Have attached a couple of photos, chassis change is currently underway (almost complete now but that's another story) but was the clearest photo showing the carrier with no spare wheel fitted. The other photo with the spare attached was taken a couple of weeks before. Had a Pivlock on my S111 SWB V8 30-years ago, very good piece of kit (within the limitations of not being able to open the door from the inside of course) and it carried my very heavy 9.00x16 on steel rim without any pro

  2. They have the suspension at max height, which makes them all behave like carp.

  3. I think this is quite a pertinent picture. Unless someone told you, you'd never know by looking at them side by side that they are related. Or even from the same auto maker. Let alone meant to be a direct successor.

  4. Since today was a public holiday in ZA, couple of friends & I went to a nearby trail for some fun off-roading (https://www.tierkloof4x4.com/). They were in Defenders and I was able to keep up (with some rock-packing and spotter guidance). This is a fairly technical trail, and a few people on our local LR WhatsApp group were very surprised that I completed the whole trail! The 90 has massive MT tyres and front & rear ARB lockers, the 110 is standard with regular MTs. I would rate the trail a 4 in the dry, and 5+ in the wet. Thankfully it had stopped raining a few days ag

  5. A colleague here has a 110 in Keswick with a white roof. He put it on matching white Wolf rims (he brought them back to Dubai one by one in his luggage on work trips). It looks absolutely stunning. Yours looks very tidy, especially for the age, so a desperate is likely, but nice that it’s the original colour.

  8. I may be wrong on having to remove the skew gear. The parts book shows a drive dog. I'll just blank it for now. Or fit a flashing LED spinner thing, pretend it was a secret device to confound Soviet observers.

  9. I can't imagine you'll fit a TD5 along with modified gearbox, fuel tank (you need the high pressure fuel pump, and if you have a standard crossmember the TD5 tank doesn't fit without mods), airbox, all the other gubbins and bits you have to adapt (power steering etc) cheaper than you could make a nice job of overhauling the Tdi, even if a little machining was needed. Plus long term, a nice 200tdi 90 will probably be worth more than a modified frankencar. I gave my 200 a mini overhaul a while back, plus took some time to port the cylinder head & manifold, lapped the valves in, set tim

  10. I rather like this vid. Amazingly it looks just like a D4 or RRS off road 🙃 who'd have thought that.... It does certainly look capable, just a D4 is. But that simply does not remove the fact that this is a Discovery, pure and simple. Some weird bouncing/bobbing up and down motion though.

  11. There's literally no reason other than a leaky servo hose or servo that will affect the running of the engine, and the risk of that is not any more than a breather or vacuum line connected to the inlet. From a purely functional perspective, why no just use the inlet manifold as the vacuum source? It is there, no additional mechanical components required, quieter, less oil-leaky.... If you want a pure vacuum port for the ECU, you can buy screw in barbs for pennies, and while you work on the inlet, it will take about 5 min to put one in Same for engine breather, if you want a sep

  12. Yes very different. I’m not aware of any other engines with the same pattern Tdi Td5

  13. The TPS cable plug will just fit. But I'd be happier with a more gentle path, so will probably relieve the alloy block a bit. The cable doesn't clip on with the throttle body in place.

  14. Yea the suspension design is worthy of a thread alone tbh

  15. Not sure I'd go to the bother, it's the sort of component I'd be inclined to just carry a spare one of in the glove box I did replace the early type (box under the coil) with a GM part on my RRC, there was a guide on the V8 Capri site about it, worked nicely.
