  1. I had the head off to do the gasket on mine so gave it a clean up of the ports, reckon ive got as much as - oh 69 to 70 hp now.
  2. So what is the difference between a disco TDI and a defender TDI?
  3. Thats the one I have on mine (89 2.5na) I had a job finding one the same when I changed it. When you look at the prices in the link Western gave Do you rub your chin and wonder "should I get a genuine one or a Britpart?" or do you decide instantly?
  4. Sounds a lot like mine, oil leaks everywhere, fixed a few of them had the head off and sorted that but it still blows oil into the air cleaner. Not really worth a full stripdown and rebore because it would still only be 67bhp, I just drive it and if anything major goes wrong with the engine I would look for a TDI to go in. Still worth you doing the head though as it's not really that big a job and made a big difference to how well mine ran.
  5. When you've got all your leaks sorted can you come and do mine? You do realise you are slowly turning off the anti-corrosion system.
  6. How often do they break and how many LR drivers have been beaten to death?
  7. I think the moral of this story is - when you take things apart put it back together loosely till you are ready to fix it.
  8. Both of mine are fitted with sliders to axles and I have never had a problem with them.
  9. That's the thing about Land rovers if you fix one leak it will just come out somewhere else, I have a big bit of old carpet under the parking spot in my garage it's been there a couple of years so maybe time to find a new bit of old carpet.
  10. Don't think there are any surprises under that plate, I believe you remove the plate then screw the centre bolt back in to lock the pump for timing. My guess would be an o ring as well, should be easy enough to get another o ring but try and get a viton one not buna as it will stand up to diesel better. Probably be difficult to find part #s for it as they don't usually want people messing with bits of the pump, just sell you a new pump.
  11. Yeah, what Bowie said, give it a rub with a file and wire brush, squirt of WD40, clean it up stick it together.
  12. Presumably you cannot drive it at the moment so you have nothing to lose by taking the pipe off and inspecting the fitting threads, if they are damaged you either have to try and restore them with a needle file or you get a new fitting, I would think you need to contact a local fuel injection specialist for that but you should be able to change it without taking the pump off. First step take the pipe off and have a look.
  13. As Mo says above but have a good look at the threads on the pump fitting as if they are damaged you will damage the threads on your new pipe and it will still leak..
  14. As long as the wear isn't a recess in the arm as then you won't be able to get an accurate feeler gauge setting.
  15. So what you going to do, get another one and try again? don't suppose you can do anything else.
