    Heat shield for starter motor v8

    yes it is the same creature as the item you have fitted

    Snorkel bits

    You are more than welcome, Mike. The arctic stuff is in the part 2 book. They take a little while to download, or to get to the stage where you can download them

    defender front seats

    Not entirely sure what you mean by the inner rail, but I have taken my seats (1984 MY) down to individual components to do something broadly similar. They are fairly basic once you start to get into them

    110 front axle springs - which one where?

    It is worth noting that in recent years Land Rover have stopped doing handed springs for the rear of the vehicle. Yet they have retained handed front springs. Whilst the engine and gearbox are offset to the left, the bulk of the transfer box and prop shafts are on the right hand side.

    110 front axle springs - which one where?

    In the parts list the springs are described as driver side and passenger side

    Snorkel bits

    Couldn't find the link I originally used but, after a bit of scrounging around, I managed to find this. The two you need are the military 110 supplementary parts catalogue and supplementary catalogue part 2. https://www.landyzone.co.uk/land-rover/pdf-military-part-manuals.160683/

    Militant history

    The Royal Logistics Corp museum might be able to help you with the history

    Snorkel bits

    They must be cos that is where I got them from. There are 2, the first one covers the parts which differ from the civilian model, the second details the more specific military bits. I'll see if I can find the link again.

    Thermostats that last??

    When you bear in mind that the original temp for the V8 was 82 until the latter years when it was raised to 88. Similarly there was always a 74 option for series engines as opposed to the normal 82. Apparently it is easier to reduce the emissions on an engine with a higher operating temperature, or should I say "allegedly"

    Heat shield for starter motor v8

    This is the relevant bit for both cat and non cat exhausts. Worked on mine after a long drive, even when the ambient temperature was 44 Deg C https://www.brit-car.co.uk/search.php?query=ntc4602&xBrand=&part_type=&xSupplierID=&product-sort=&xPerPage=10

    Snorkel bits

    Had a look at both of them, sadly no information about snorkels. Lots of stuff about arctic heaters, snow blinds, interior insulation and stuff like that though

    The EBay Christ I fancy that 4x4 + its cheap thread

    It sort of grows on you after a while

    I have a couple of military parts catalogues, I'll have a look in them, see if I can spot anything

    2.5 TD5 or 2.4 Tdi?

    If you look around it is possible to find solid flywheel kits to replace the dual mass item (for the TD 5 at least) There are some things to bear in mind when buying a Defender. Some will have been privately owned and used relatively gently but may have had some items skimped on because of cost. Some will have been commercially owned, used hard and serviced as per the book until they meet their whole life cost, at which point they will be disposed of. . A well maintained Defender is capable of stellar mileage. I put 320,000 on a Tdi, from New. A friend has a 90 which is pushing 750,000 miles and my current V8 is at something like 390,000 I dread to think how much tax the chancellor has had from that vehicle

    New alternator and oil cooler pipes required

    Maybe, there are some good videos on the tube of you about how to replace brushes, slip rings and the like. Posted by a company which sells such items on fleablag
