    Alternator Belt

    Hi guys Can anyone tell me the part number please for the alternator belt on a disco 200tdi engine in a series 2a, no power steering fitted so just the one belt. Thanks

    What's wrong with your axle ?

    Alternator Belt

    Ok i managed to obtain a 1225mm x 13mm belt from one of the motorist's shops but it only reached between the alt pulley nut and the top of the pully so i've ordered a 1250mm x 13mm Dayco belt off ebay which should fit once it arrives

    Rattler and son 1971 S11a swb Restoration

    Hi guys Either this weekend or next weekend me and son will be starting work on a 1971 petrol s11a restoration ( full nut and bolt ) we aquired the vehicle last year but had to replace the chassis on our 90 first due to it being involved in a no fault ( to us ) accident which damaged the chassis, anyway the s11a has a rotten chassis which will be replaced with a new galv chassis, the bulkhead is in a bit of a mess as it recently had work done on it prior to us buying it but for some reason it looks like the worst parts of it got missed out, the front door hinges are welded to the bulkhead and the footwells and pillars are rotten out aswell so if the bulkhead is too bad to repaire we mite buy a better bulkhead that needs less work and use that, all 3 door frames are rotten so will be replacing those aswell but the rest of the body looks in good shape, the g/box will be refurbished aswell as both axles, nut sure what we are doing with the engine yet till we do a comp test first then decide on what to do, anyway here are some pic's when we first bought it

    Its close but clears or should do with a belt on as its hanging loose in the pic, the series mount you mean the mount you have used if so no I prefer the Disco mount tbh just struggling to get a belt as I fitted the same alt on my 90 I had last year but the only difference between the two conversions is the 90's disco tdi had the original disco crank pulley and the 2a's Disco dressed Def engine has the original Def crank pulley but I can't remember if the Disco and Def crank pulley's are the same o.d. or not and can't remember where I got the belt from for the 90, think son got it from where he worked but he doesn't work there anymore but hopefully I can get one on Monday as I've found out there is a new C.E.S. sprung up near me and I have another two motorist's shops to walk to aswell so fingers crossed

    I moded the alt bracket today to move the alt forward to line up the alt pulley with the water pump and crank pulley's, the belt in the pic was just cut and layed across the alt pulley and water pump pully, still saucing a belt

    Yeah 1050 rang a bell to what I used on my last one with an 100amp alt aswell but this time i'm using a Britpart 120amp alt which I think is bigger in size to a std disco 100amp alt, was thinking about a 1075 walking home, also found out there is a newish C.E.S. auto factors sprung up near me so will give them ago on my way to two more motorist's shops if they can't help.

    Alternator Belt

    Went to my local Motor world store today with a length of 3 core cable ( all I had in the garage ) cut to length as a sample and the biggest belt they had in was a 1050 which was still to small so i'l go for a walk on Monday into Northenden as there are two motorist's shops there hopefully one of them can help

    My last one an S2a swb 2.25p had what was suposedly an ashcroft transfer box fitted and at the time not knowing anything about ashcroft transfer boxes i fitted an o/d something i've just recently found out you can't fit on an ashcroft transfer box, anyway the gearing was very high hill climbing and towing was hard when it came to hills, anyway later i decided on replacing the engine with a disco 200tdi but keeping with the same gearing and the tdi transformed the landy hill climbing and anything i had behind it wasn't a problem but on motorways solo i found that the engine was quite noisy asthough it needed another gear i thought about fitting rr diffs but never did it then later sold the landy on. 10ish yrs on and i'm doing it all again but with me still thinking my last one had an ashcroft transfer box i wanted to do the same with this one and whilst i'm at it fit 3.54 diffs aswell which i've fitted and planned on fitting an o/d later but as said just recently found out you can't fit one so with the ashcroft H.R.T.C kit ordered and need to get the gearbox rebuilt and the H.R.T.C. kit fitted to it i want to try it all first and see how it all is first and if it is too highly geared i may swap the old std diffs back, its a shame though you can't fit an o/d would make life easier

    I think for the 2.25p engine it is to high but for peeps with a tdi / V8 fitted the ashcroft transfer box would be more suited to it, with mine i've fitted Def diffs aswell as i was hopeing to be fitting an o/d but found out you can't so it will be interesting how the ashcroft transfer box goes with the extra gearing but i've still got the original diffs to fall back on if i'm not happy with the gearing, it sure would have bèen good if i could fit an o/d to the ashcroft tranny box as i could have used it as a splitter box but hay ho.

    Yeah we had a bit of bad news over Christmas, read up on fb that from 1/1/2019 Syncro gearboxes are no longer doing work on series gearboxes only supplying kits so i've spoken to J Bouhmonts about them overhauling my gearbox and building and fitting an h/r transferbox kit from Ashcroft which i have just ordered so once it arrives we can take the comp gearbox inc the h/r transferbox kit to boughmonts for them to do
