  3. Maybe they took inspiration from Lotus cars. My Esprit manual states: "Your Esprit Turbo SE is equipped with a powerful engine to allow for fast and safe overtaking." And as everyone surely knows, I always follow the manual to the letter. 😄 Filip

  8. Add some shims made of flat plate to the left engine and transmission mounts, between the brackets and the rubbers. That will move them up and to the right and will give you the clearance you need. There are no differences between standard and MoD spec chassis that would cause or avoid this fouling. You could try new mounting rubbers, just in case yours have squashed as they aged. That would have allowed the whole assembly to sit low on the chassis.

  9. I had a BMW 528i with limited slip diff, and the manual warned that with excessive or heavy use of the throttle in wet or slippery conditions the vehicle may display a marked tendency to rotate about the centre of gravity. They were right, it did.

  12. Well the 300tdi did have 111bhp as a vast change to the previous n/a diesels the military previous 90/LR's had. no secrets just down to the driver knowing the vehicle.

  16. From what I remember, there were quite a few damaged from crashes due to squaddies coming straight out of 1970’s 2286 powered 109s and straight into Wolfs.

  17. That intake manifold was redesigned to suit the Ford installation, where the turbo outlet to the intercooler would clash with the LR intake position. TGV had some head rework though, larger intake and exhaust valves, and I think bigger ports. You can see in Daans photo the outer head bolts are smaller diameter than the 300tdi ones (they are M8 instead of M12). So the manifold would have got some rework in any case. International produced several different intake manifold designs for the HS2.5 (300tdi) at the same time, according to the parts catalogue. The one of the l

  18. I pulled up next to one in my 110 the other day, pretty sure my 110 made a lurch for it. It told me later it could definitely smash it in a fight and I have no reason to doubt it. Lucky they can run away fast.

  19. I'm surprised these manifolds haven't appeared on here before, they've been around a few years. I had a short conversation with the bloke that sells/makes them once, and he was talking utter garbage regarding how they worked. They are going to do nothing for performance. However, it's interesting regarding the "feeling smoother" part, as altering the shape of the manifold will have an effect on felt/heard intake resonance. That can certainly determine how an engine feels.

  20. Does sound like a duff guage. The best thing to do initially is get the heater working so you know that coolant is being circulated. Ensure the settings are set on hot then physically check that the lever on top of the heater box is pushed all the way across towards the nearside of the vehicle. Then check for coolant reaching the matrix by taking the hose of to check. Once you have confirmed coolant is in the matrix and the controls are set to allow air to pass over the matrix, go for a short drive and you should have warm air coming through. If this solves your apparent overheating problem t

  21. Midweek, coming down M4 from a meet with my accountant, doing the typical midday-middle-lane 70MPH 90TD5-amble - a couple of silver New Defenders passed me; sign-written for an estates-management business - one towing a twin-axle flatbed with a Takeuchi minidigger on-board, the other towing an orange Timberwolf log-muncher. Caught up with them at Reading services - they were in a hurry so only a few words were exchanged but the gist was that they were going down to Shepton Mallett to drop their loads, pick up new loads, expected to be back in Maidenhead by 6PM. They said the new-Defenders we
