  1. It was head gasket. Put washing up liquid at back of head and started bubbling. Removed head and it is blowing out the back. Checked head flatness with parallel and feeler blade/dti. Head is very flat and can't measure a 0.001". Think it needs a very light min to clean to remove any imperfections.
  2. Genuine Wabco pump fitted. Put my hand at back of cylinder head and can't feel any blowing.
  3. It does sound as though its at the back of the bulkhead. Vacuum pump replaced a year ago. Doesn't make a noise at tickover only on boost. Can you upload a video on this site?
  4. My Defender is a P plate 300TDi 90 CSW. 120,000 miles. It has recently started to make a ticking noise when accelerating and today it has been more noticeable. It seems to be when it comes onto boost. I can lift the throttle and it stops and then reapply and it will start again. So I think the temperature makes it worse as some days it doesn't make the noise or is a lot less noticeable. Trawling the net, it could be head gasket, valve top retainers, exhaust gasket, but I would of thought it would make the noise all the time if it was. The vehicle seems to run OK otherwise. As it seems to be temp and boost related, could it be diesel knock? Any info gratefully received.
  5. Are you still interested in the winch and bumper?

      Spoke to my old man and he has decided he is not going to worry about replacing the Winch for now.

       

      Thanks anyway

  6. I got them from John Craddocks. Their part number LM150.

    I'll try and find a postage cost and let you know.

      Do they have the little bent up drain sections in them like the paddock/britpart ones do? http://www.paddockspares.com/defender-door-bottom-repair-section.html

      They are still in the packaging, so will have to check.

      Thank you.  Stupid question!!  Would an electric winch fit in its place?

      Alternatively, any idea of the cost (or supplier) of the PTO bits and pieces?

      Cheers

      Honest answer is I don't know. Could try the LR winches website for PTO bits.

      I'll take it anyway. Happy to wait until December fro me to collect, would you like paying now?

      I still need to look at the 90 for a towbar - I'll do that later and let you know.

      Cheers

  8. Does anyone know the part number of the large O ring that goes between the lid and main housing of a 300 TDI air filter on a Defender. Mines broke. I can't see it in any of the parts lists. Thanks.
  9. The nut has been removed from my 1995 300tdi Defender 90 steering drop arm that holds it to the steering box. There appears to be 2 different washers on Allbrit.de. A 48mm and 60mm washer. Anyone know which one I should fit?
  10. There isn't 2 types of slave cylinder is there? I am wondering if the slave is bottoming out before pushing on the diaphram? I can move the release lever backwards and forwards in the housing and there is no resistance as though the release bearing isn't there.
  11. Checked the adjustment and its as per the book. Pedal still rock solid. Fluid flowing through pipe and out of bleed on slave so don't think its the hose. Ruled out the external issues so must be inside the clutch housing.
  12. Looking at the release arm it seems to be all the way back against the housing. I would of thought the rod would have been forward more.
  13. Don't know as bought as a partially built project. Clutch is new.
  14. Slave working fine. How could they have fitted it wrong?
  15. My 1995 300 TDi defender 90 has had a new clutch fitted and all new hoses and slave cylinder. Bled the clutch but the pedal is solid. You can't push it down. We are going to check the slave is working properly but has anyone else had a similar issue or got any ideas?
