  1. Quite a few to be honest, think its time for new set to look after properly.
  2. Gonna treat myself to a decent Socket Set, Ive had this one for a few years nowhttps://www.halfords.com/workshop-tools/tools/socket-sets/halfords-advanced-200-pc-socket-and-ratchet-spanner-set-limited-edition cant fault it but have lost a few bits from it. they are out of stock now so was Looking at this one for £260 with trade card, https://www.halfords.com/workshop-t...dvanced-200-pc-socket-and-ratchet-spanner-set anyone got one of these . Not sure if I would need some of the bits in it. infact don't know what some of them are for, mostly working on 300 Tdi engines , There is a few to choose from here. https://www.halfords.com/workshop-tools/tools/socket-sets
  3. Bit Further forward, Its this box in Pic. Or one of the wires, When 1 and 2 are arced/ touched together with screwdriver the Blower comes on, when 2 and 3 are joined together the Blower AND Dials come on together., The Blower is wired to its own switch, and Dials were working off Ignition. Any Ideas from this??. Number 14 looks OK Should of tried a new fuse though just in case.
  4. Tonight my 3 Gauges went out, after I moved another wire that had a small 4 inch piece of strip light which illuminates under the small 4x4 gear stick all fitted by the PO.The Gauges came on every time the Ignition was turned on.Anyway it stopped the Blower too which is wired to a separate switch for some reason or another, this has an Inline fuse which is OK, As are the main fuses, , took the front of the Pod off and all wires seem OK, but just will not come back on. Don't have a clue where to look as Im no good with electrics at all. The CB does not work now either, think they must be all connected.Any Ideas Anyone., ??
  5. Tried to google how to reset service light on 1998 Disco but just got info for Newer models.Is there an easy way to do it, or does it need fancy computer plugged in to erase it ??
  6. Thanks Mate Perfect, was easier then I thought it would be, Got nice new air filter now, done oil and fuel aswell with fresh oil.
  7. Just got a decent Disco, Modified for Off Roading . It has what looks like a homemade botched snorkel fitted with no Air Filter fitted as there is no Box as in first pic.. But I want to put it back to normal with standard box and Filter. I have spare box that is for my Defender rebuild so will use it for now. Thing is there is no bracket with the 2 holes in that the 2 points on box go in to hold it on place. Also not sure which direction the front piece of pipe goes to. Really need to go have a look at one with Standard air box, to know exactly where to put mine. but was gonna have a go tomorrow. Anyone got any pics of there 300tdi engine bay with standard set up ?? Thanks

    Great Think Ive Grasped it now, Please forgive me everyone but This is my first Rebuild, and my Main problem is that I did not take it apart as I bought it as a rolling Chassis with Crates full of Parts which I am still sifting through as I come to stage when they need fitting. Thanks Everyone for help.

    Thanks. Do the four Brown all go together on Starter Main Connector too?

    That's just what I waned to see Mate as I am hopeless at using Colour codes and Charts., I'm positive colours om my loom are exact same as yous ,will check tomorrow. Now these are the Main ends of mine in pics. Pic 1 is Starter, now there is altogether 4 brown wires as you can see going in to a pair of Ring connectors, Do both these go on the same Main Starter connector with Live to Battery lead in Pic 2 ?? Pic 3 is Alternator , this also has two brown do these two join together to connect to Alt ? the other wires are further back up the line. added pic of Alternator, Where do wires attach to it ?? Might have to lengthen some to make them reach.

    7 could have been white / grey but has faded. 4 I'm sure is white / Brown 6 Two Green The only two spade connectors I can see on that side are , one on Oil filter housing, and one on Injection Pump.
  12. kevin50


    6 is 2 Green going in to one plug. and 7 I think White as it has faded.

    Still on with this, I know I shouldn't but I keep jumping from one job to another without finishing. Anyway found the Origional loom, and plug lines up perfect to Bulkhead plug matching all colours. Ive numbered wires in first pic, Think I know what goes to Starter and what goes to Alternator, But not sure about the rest.
  14. Thanks Everyone got a good idea of what I can do now. Just the Oil Cooler pipes to sort
  15. My rebuild id 1987 110 with Disco 300Tdi and LT77 box. Hitting problem after problem with engine been about 6 to inches further back. solving slowly them one by one. Here is my next one in pic, is running out of funds now to buy conversion kits ect, Is ther a DIY way to get round this, think I will need to do something with oil cooler pipes to.
