  1. Right back to the start, did you put the return line into the tank as in did you make a new hole or use an old one? Check the pick up pipe to see if it has not picked up some foreign object, I have had a few problems with diesels and never had to remove the FIP. I had some problems in the past with fuel filters, you could try another one if you have one handy. Next step I would do is get a gallon can with some diesel in it and run a pipe from it to the lift pump and start it up and see what happens, if the problem persists its from the lift pump forward, if the problem goes away the problem
  2. Hi, Quick question 1982 RRC when the lights are turned on the flasher-horn-dip switch will not turn on the Main beams, it just stays on Dip beams. It will only put on the Main beams if you pull back on the stalk, like to flash the lights. So main beams work. Is there a relay hiding somewhere in the bowels of the dash for the main beams, or is the flasher-horn-dip switch fubar ?
  3. Hi, Quick question about the Gwyn Lewis or other twin alternator mounts on 300TDI, is the fan belt driven from the viscous fan pully or dose it take drive from the crankshaft pully ?
  4. As Rusty said all normal wear, nothing to worry about.
  5. So none of you have come across the counterfeit chinese " Timken bearings"
  6. Nope not the switch, oh Jesus lads sorry but this is long but i hope it helps someone sometime, At this point i should tell you that this is NOT my Landrover, the owner (new to Landrovers and has this 90 about 2 months) was put on to me by a friend because i have Landrovers and i might have an idea how to make the lights work. The owner rang me about a week ago that the lights dips/mains were not working and what could he do, i told him to check: 1. The fuses, 2. The switches and 3. The bulbs. The next phone call came 3-4 days after, and goes the LR "just stopped" it turns out the timing b
  7. Nope only the 2 relays in there. Tried the power switch earlier, even removed and bridged connection with wire. Power out one connection parks come on, power out other connection nothing, so main switch seems to be ok. Next it seems is a multi meter and check power IN and power OUT of indicator/dip switch, if that's ok then fuses and connections then blubs ???
  8. @ western, behind the fusebox metal panel in front of the gear lever, there are only 2 relays: No:1 is for wiper delay, No:2 is for the hazards. Under the metal panel there are 3 yellow relay plug in bases, there empty. @ Landy'd Gentry, thats very interesting, which switch to be sure, is it the Main light switch (position 1 parks, position 2 dip/main) or the Indicator/headlamp switch ? I will have to do more checks tomorrow, i was getting cold and pi$$ed off so left it for the night.
  9. 2 relays behind fusebox metal panel, No:1 is for wiper delay, No:2 is for the hazards. I think this correct is it ? trying to remember, i will double check tomorrow.
  10. Hi, Its a 1992 200TDI 90, position 1 on main switch the parking/side lights work fine, but on position 2 on the main switch nothing, No dips or main beams but when you pull the stalk back to flash the lights the mains work. Main light switch checked with a multi-meter and working, Indicator/headlamp switch checked and working and all the fuses are ok Any ideas ? Is there a relay in the lighting circuit ? I seem to remember in an 1987 110 there was a relay or something in behind the binnacle ?
  11. Also check red plug on ECU for oil, had one doing the same it was oil in the loom. The wastgate in the manifold can seize up. Under the heat shield there's a rod and on one end there's the wastgate actuator, the other end is the wastgate (just a lever going into the manifold) you need to make sure this is free to move it will be hard to move but it should.
  12. First thing I would do is i'll look for another mate, what a load of POO. This is why LandRovers have such a bad name because of people like your mate who have not a f@#@#@g clue !!! Your 110 will happilly cruise at 70 mph with no problems.
  13. Hi, if its an early 110 it could have a 1.6 transfer box, later 110's and all 90's have 1.4 transfer boxes, and disco's have 1.2 ratio transfer boxes. If you have a 1.6 ratio you can change it for a 1.4 ratio and it should bring your revs down.
  14. Hi all, Hope you can help 2001 TD5 88,000 miles 110, won't pass 60 mph totally gutless and no get up and go. Here's what was done: head gasket, timing 100%, free up the wastgate, new fuel pump, new afm, new fuel regulator, all intake hoses removed and checked, full service after head gasket done, pluged into hawkeye no faults codes and on a run with hawkeye pluged in all ok and everything working as should be. Fuel pressure checked and its 4 bar at the engine. The only thing that was found was the revs would climb to around 2500rpm and go no futher with my foot flat on the floor and in any
  15. Hi i've a Defender 2001 TD5 with 80,000 miles on it and the tensioner for the alt belt was making a racket and flapping about when ticking over, so a new one was ordered and fitted but now the noise is gone but its still flapping about. Why is it flapping about ? it moves at least 1/2" each way so an inch overall movement and if it continues it won't be long till the noise returns.It flaps about four times a second, hard to say really. This can't be normal, i've a 300TDI and no movement out of the tensioner when its running. Also is there a common leak point for coolant as its losing some
  16. Have you timed it yet, or replaced the push rods and rockers, as it sounds like when you turn it over its hitting the valves ?
  17. A word of caution for you kevrobbins if you snap a shaft with a detroit locker wave goodby to your locker because the sudden release of torque destroys it internally. There is little difference in strength of LR shafts just because there from a 110/130 means sh#t. Save your money and buy once and buy right, heavy duty half shafts with a 5 year warranty from Ashcroft (sorry kamdiffs steve) I have been running ashcroft shafts front and back with detroit truetrac front and detriot locker in the rear since 2000 and never had a problem, and its not for the want of trying. Fully kitted HT 90 2
  18. Hi, Sorry of topic a little, but that's BILL BURKE's NAS 90 i drove that NAS on one of the trails in Moab, was in Moab with Bill for a week back in 2001 Dam stravaigin did you ship your 90 out to the US for a event ? Sorry again for off topic.
  19. WOW OH BOY, Did i ask a good question or what ? Thanks for all the replies some reading. Now for the next one, you said all heads are the same valve size etc So are all the ECU's(14cux) the same, or is there a difference between 3.9L and 4.2L ecu's ?
  20. Hi, Thanks for the replies, off to buy a book and do some reading.
  21. Hi, A question on V8s and heads, Whats the difference between 3.5 and 3.9 heads, will 3.9 head fit a 3.5 block is there any advantage ? and whats the difference between 3.9 and 4.2 heads, and is there any advantage fitting 4.2 heads to a 3.9 block ? If i am looking at a V8 engine, how do identify if it is a 4.2L block/heads ? Thanks.
  22. Hi, Sounds like its your battery to me, try jump starting or charging the battery. Batteries don't like the cold and even what seems like a good battery in normal weather can give up the ghost in these kind of temperatures. Hope this helps.
  23. Hi, You answered your own question "fast speed parks in the wrong place" Your problem is the parking switch, i had the same thing one of the contacts inside the parking switch broke off and crossed the rest and blew the fuse. The broken off contact was loose inside the parking switch box and it can move around and short out sometimes. You can buy the switch on its own from LR, i dont have the part number to hand but someone will have it. I was advised to change the whole wiper motor at mega £££££, but i only changed the switch and two years later its still working fine. Hope this helps.
