  1. If you cannot see where you are going with the standard headlights, it might be worth having your eyes checked for any possible problems which might cause this difficulty. Whilst the standard headlights might not be as bright as the latest laser cannons fitted to a lot of modern cars they were/are perfectly acceptable for night time driving along roads which are not streetlit
  2. red hylomar is rubbish, always was. https://www.elring.com/en/products/sealing-compounds/
  3. your best bet might be to take them to your local branch of Pirtek. I have always found them to very knowledgeable and helpful https://www.pirtek.co.uk

  5. As far as I am aware the fitment of the cable at the transfer box end has always been the same on a Defender. Later models dispensed with the cable and used an electrical "sender" unit, but in the past I have removed one of the sender units and replaced it with the standard speedo drive gear and cable without any problems. Again as far as I know such differences as there were are between left hand and right hand drive vehicles, plus variations in length because of the different engines involved and differing sizes of bell housings. They all employ the same drive mechanism
  6. Nah, if you are replacing them the early galvanised ones are far superior
  7. Changed a V8 from carbs to efi years ago so might be able to answer some of your questions. Yes you need the road speed transducer the best colour gear to use is the one you already have fitted to your existing transfer box If you have a branch of Pirtek local to you, they will be able to fit your oil cooler pipes with the proper fixings for a small price, though there is nothing wrong with jubilee clips There are 3 different temperature guages listed but they change with chassis number, not engine type. The sender unit for a 200 is a different part No to the V8 and I have had numerous sender units in my V8, one of which talks to the gauge sensibly, the remainder do not. The relevant part being PRC2506 It will be immediately obvious if they aren't talking to each other sensibly
  8. Haven't had gaskets on mine for years. I use this. https://www.turnerengineering.co.uk/elring-dirko-sealant-sealing-compound-c2x20634602

    then for whatever reason the cable is not being driven by the gear in the transfer box, either because the cable drive is worn out or there is a problem in the transfer box itself. I would guess the square drive socket within the gear is no longer square or the end of the cable which goes into the drive is no longer square
  10. I had something similar with mine and it turned out to be the slave cylinder pipe sitting too close to the exhaust pipe and getting 'kin hot
  11. no great loss it lost its appeal about 10 years ago
  12. There are 2 different types of lower links, hollow and solid. They MUST NOT be mixed. NTC4720 solid NTC8328 hollow However there is only 1 part No for the nut NY120041l which supercedes to NY120064 https://www.brit-car.co.uk/product.php/418550/0/nut_m20_nylock
  13. Thought they all had vented front discs in that era, however. This is one of them, look familiar? https://www.brit-car.co.uk/product.php/91938/0/brake_caliper_right_hand_front___non_vented_defender and this is the other. https://www.brit-car.co.uk/product.php/96296/0/brake_caliper_left_hand_front___non_vented_defender_
  14. it has seen better days but my suggestion is that the colour of this 1997 truck is County green. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1997-Land-Rover-Defender-County-Station-Wagon-110-300tdi-spare-wing/124156385247?hash=item1ce84c17df:g:OTMAAOSw7kFehPSL
