    But I think the transfer box is usable, if you don't mind the 1.2 ratio rather than the 1.4.

    LIghting problems

    That has to be the no.1 suspect.
  3. Yeah more boost will reduce temps I believe - correct me if I'm wrong

    When will it end?

    If I could trap any part of a scum bag in a vice, I might not be thinking fingers....Yes, if you view it that the Defenders are rising to the correct level it doesn't seem so mad/painful. Incidentally why ARE Lotus Cortinas so expensive?

    Defender to WA159806 ?

    Also a Mr G Lewis of Llanfair Caereinion suggests it is better to cut off the 'cup' on the later axles Link; that would put the TD5 front axle back to similar to TDi, but that may only apply to the rears.

    Rear side shafts

    Or as it's a 90 get a set of Disco 1 half shafts, about £30, with the mushroom heads. No leaks, no splines, about 15 minutes to fit.

    New LT230 ratios

    Mmm, that certainly widens the options, thanks.

    Smokescreen worthy of a Bond Car being pursued!

    Why not try advancing it a bit to see if it helps? Check whether it's timed Ok to start, and if it is you know you can get back to where it was. Or you could always mark a line on the pulley and hub. If it fixes the problem pro tem, well and good. If not you are no worse off. You can always get back to where it is supposed to be then. Re the brakes, you'll need to check whether they work or not before going anywhere , but assuming it's been reasonably dry you might have got away with it. Light rust will clean off with a few applications, heavy won't and you'll maybe need discs and pads. Drums will clean up with emery paper after removal. Try and pick an MOT place a few miles away, and 'use' the brakes and engine on the way.

    Air Filter blocked? Turbo stuck? Presumably black smoke?

    I suppose that's what they mean by click and collect.

    You might look at replacing your RCD with a type F one; they are supposed to cope with inverters (many recent washing machines use inverters); see link.

    Stainless Spire Bolts?

    Try YRM; I think I have seen something like that there.

    Euro Car Parts

    I wouldn't normally bother with them, but they popped up in a search for non LR car parts , and they have a promo (code 'early') running this week which seems to be pretty good, at about 50% off, and if they have what you want, puts them in the pricing realms of cheap to reasonable, eg Mann ERR3390 filters 4.19 with discount. I have no interest or connection with them, but thought I'd put it on here in case anyone else wanted to make use of it. (Mods, I hope this is Ok)

    Bench top milling machine

    Nice! You may be able to program the inverter for a softer start.

    It seems overkill but here are Turbo Technics fitting instructions link, it does make you wonder how manufacturers do it when the engine is being built.
