  1. you could always fit something like this. https://foundry4x4.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=76
  2. No, worse than that. It just looks bland, insipid and derivative
  3. Having had a power steering pump belt fail on me, it made the vehicle (110) almost undrive-able the steering was so heavy without assistance. A friend had a very early classic which did not have PS fitted, it was in mint condition and he sold it to a collector (in Japan) for a fortune. Every prospective buyer from UK whinged about it not having PS but, as he got fed up of pointing out, if he fitted PS it would no longer be original
  4. +1 for NFU. Very good company to deal with. Don't even need to live out in the middle of nowhere, a close friend of mine runs one of their branches, in Manchester
  5. You could contact Turner engineering and ask them what the differences were between early and late TD5 engines. https://www.turnerengineering.co.uk
  6. Adding holes for "lightness" is never a good idea in such a safety critical item. Nice, bendy, half shaft on the discovery
  7. The early seats with plastic backs are becoming quite rare, I would put them on Ebay and see what they fetch
  8. Chances are that they all go to the same manufacturer, be they bearmach, britpart or allmakes.
  9. It is the sales arm of Twisted, not known for their under charging. The engine is from RPI, which is as good a reason as any other for walking away
  10. Honestly, for the price differential, I would buy genuine. https://www.brit-car.co.uk/search.php?query=muc1005&xBrand=&part_type=&xSupplierID=&product-sort=&xPerPage=10
  11. In the early One_Ten V8 the crank pulley typically only has 2 grooves. One for the water pump and the other for the PS pump. the alternator is driven by a belt from the PS pump and AC is driven from the water pump. the pulley pictured is unusual not least for the number of belt grooves, (4 or 5?) but in that it appears to be cast. The typical pulley is built up from the basic damper assembly and a series of pressed metal elements. Best bet? Get in touch with the publishers and ask them to identify it
  12. The slam and non slam type don't appear to have any immediately obvious difference, apart from price. They all use the same strikers MRC8444 and MRC8445 Plus, according to the attached, the part Nos you quote are for vehicles from 1986 onwards https://www.brit-car.co.uk/product.php/163680/0/door_latch_rh_early_110_def https://www.brit-car.co.uk/product.php/163681/0/latch https://www.brit-car.co.uk/product.php/96152/0/left_hand_slam_type_door_lock___defender_from_1986_onwards
  13. Here you go £20 for genuine. My current unit has been in there for 7 years. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENUINE-LAND-ROVER-VISCOUS-FAN-For-2-25-2-5-3-5-V8-PETROL-2-5NA-DIESEL-ERC5708/232870499688?epid=653216905&hash=item363829d568:g:2z8AAOSwnKdbYWQq&redirect=mobile
