    Everything will be driven from the ipad in front of the gearstick - because we all know touch screen controls are perfect for wet, muddy cold environments, work well with gloves, can be operated without having to look at a mixture of the screen and the instruction manual when on the motorway at 70 etc etc...

    Just look at that, how the hell are you supposed to know what that bloody great round thing does unless it's marked "steering" or "for going round corners"?

    The writer says "Weak product quality has long been a problem with JLR, dating to the time when the UK luxury automaker was still in the hands of Ford." Clearly not old enough to remember the cars built in the days of BL then ...

    In the interests of providing some closure with info that may save someone else some grief I have measured the various bearings and seals for the 101 PTO and give some cross reference numbers that should be recognizable to any bearing shop. Item numbers are for the 101 parts book. Item 4 Thrust Bearing, Cross Shaft, 591806 AXK3552 Item 7 Roller bearing 591814 KT354013 Item 13 Roller bearing, cross shaft and output shaft 591807 AXK3047 Item 15 Thrust bearing 591813 KT303513 Item 18 Oil Seal 591819 30X40X7 SKF A10296 Item 31 O-ring 571991 15mm ID 2mm rope dia.

    Out with clients today.... A good was had by all and the 110 really loved going out again after a Winter of sleeping in the workshop. Now off to NL / PL / RU to play with trains...

    Stitched leather encasing the dash as well as the seats, and you mention utilitarian? This, and the automatic gearbox, show this will be no working vehicle. But we know that already from the mooted price tag, suspension, ground clearance and ridiculous profile alloy wheels on test mules. It's a posers car through and through. Edited to add that the legal row could very likely be deliberate to gain attention, much like some actors giving supposed spoilers and being "fired" for doing so - Mark Ruffalo is a good example, where it's all planned by the studios. So much in modern media is false or manipulated now that it's hard to know what to believe, and difficult to believe certain sources at all anymore.

    Agreed, the compressor at 100psi will be the same as any other compressor at 100psi. Warm the wax, and check your hoses for small orifices, on a similar cheap compressor I found one new hose only had ~2mm passage in the hose just behind one of the fittings.

    Hi all , sorry it's took so long to put some figures to this but sadly my father-in-law past away and my mind hasn't quite been on it but got some enthusiasm back last week so gave the 110 a service today and fitted the thermo-couples . So took here for a short drive , but just to recap she's got an Allisport front mounted intercooler , an uprated chra in the turbo and a pump tweak , so once up to temp I took a few readings as such there not to accurate as I was on my own and trying to watch multiple things is quite hard when your on country lanes . at idle in 29c out 17c doing 40 in about 60c out 20c accelerating hard up to 60 in at peak 97c out 22c these figures are very rough . I'm on afternoons next week so I'll get some more accurate readings , but the one thing that I did notice is that the in temp rose as high as 100c at one point but once the engine was up to temp the air going into the engine was never above 22c , it seemed to stay from 16c to 22c . I'll also take her for a spin down the A50 on the way home one night see how that affects the temps .

    LR have already jumped in that it's an old concept setup. I tend to believe them as it's unlikely that the random dude who posted the photo would have anything to do with the final production version. The LR PR guy got very angry with him on Twitter before his account got nuked 🙄 https://jalopnik.com/this-is-the-new-land-rover-defender-dash-before-youre-s-1832627241 It may have similarities, but Stop and Go pedals don't scream "finished product".

    I’ve mentioned it here before. I wasn’t sure if you needed the Td5 ECU connected to communicate with the 10AS module. I can now confirm if you plug your Nanocom into the original OBD port, which for me is in the depths of the auto console. You can communicate with the 10AS alarm unit without it present.. I’ve just managed to get it to auto lock if you don’t open the door..

    Yes, 2 wires for the shift solenoids, one for the lockup, and one for the 'pressure', a modulated signal determining how the ferocious the changes are and how tight the clutches hang on. Megashift, or any of the arduino-type based transmission controllers will do it happily in DIY form, or you can go with one of the commercial offerings, but expect to pay 4 figures for it.

    Update, for anyone else trying to do this. Whilst trawling back through old copies of L/R mags, i found an article in LRM july 2013 (see it does pay to keep all those old copies, tell the wife!) Defender ABS Retro fit. Fitting a TD5 ABS to a ROW (Rest of world) TD5 loom, which is what i have. Anyway, wont bore you all with detail, but it was done and sucessfull, by IRB developments. I just have to beaver away and find out some of these last few wiring details as the article was not that in depth. I also have to work out how to wire in a OBD2 diagnostic socket as i had not thought about the fact that i way need to do some diagnostics or at least reset the ABS ECU.

    Garry, A bit of easy disassembly today and I have found my problem. The constant mesh gear and shaft assembly is good. My problem is the thrust bearing 591813 (Item 15 in the parts list) that lies between the bevel gear (Item 6) and the cross shaft (Item 9) is completely missing. Fortunately, like you say, I have not used my winch much so there is no scoring on the running surfaces of the mating parts. I see no sign of the race but what made me think a bearing had collapsed was that I had seen some of the rollers coming out in the oil during its annual change. As for root cause analysis. On pulling things apart I note that once you have the bearing support (Item 17) and its shims off the output shaft can be pulled out the housing. My suspicion is that at some time in its life the seal has been changed and the shaft pulled partially or completely out which has allowed that first thrust bearing to fall out of the stack. The mechanic has pushed the shaft back in and there has been nothing external to say that the bearing is now gone. This accounts for the excessive free play in the output gear end float.

    I agree and will be submitting it for a pre-MOT anyway. You really can not mess with this sort of thing and better to be safe than not.

    Way off topic and posted entirely for topical amusement. Hope it's not too far left field. I give you... The Oxford Allen snow plough! I believe they sold one for it, or somebody used to make one. Either way, it makes short work of keeping the drive passable for 2wd euroboxes. Fabricobbling something up for the 109 seemed like overkill. Stay safe! VID-20190201-WA0043.mp4

    I've got a friend whose got a yard full of stuff and I'd be surprised if he doesn't have some somewhere (has a couple of mogs for the business). We spent 15 minutes wandering around a corner of his yard trying to find and entire 300Tdi engine. He knew it was in the north east corner but still took us 15 minutes of lifting up tarps on engines to find the right one... If @steve b doesn't pan out I can ask him.

    Just watched that Gordon Murray dry build video, its impressive stuff. I think what is astonishing though is the number of builds that are visible around the workshop and yard. I know its beyond most of our budgets (if not our dreams) but the Retropower guys have obviously tapped into a serious vein there. Good stuff lads, and thanks for sharing, .. look forward to seeing something on the door builds here soon.
