  1. Cheers Mav, i might very well take you up on that offer!

    110 front axle springs - which one where?

    I'm going to throw a spanner in the works here and say the long ones are on the driver's side (right hand side). Could be a UK/Canada difference though? Also, i could be totally wrong!
  3. I didn't even know this was possible! I've got a new thermostat in now and so far, so good. Still need to have a good check of the earths and i also have a HEAP of oil in my ECU block connector. Starting to think i should've bought a 300tdi to stay away from some of these electrical gremlins but hind sight is an exact science etc etc...
  4. So, things are looking better on the heating side of things. I changed the thermostat, heater matrix and 2 cooling hoses and she seems to be running better. It's been warmer up with us recently though so that might be making a difference. On a related note, i've spotted the attached pic on my travels. How do you even go about fixing that? Could this be causing some issues with all my brake warning lights and the temp gauge as well?

    2.5 TD5 or 2.4 Tdi?

    I have a 90 TD5 and drive a 2012 2.4 110 for work. The TD5 is slower and colder but i would have it over the 2.4 any day of the week. The leg room in the 2.4 is terrible and the transit engine doesn't sound like a defender to me. I don't think parts are ever going to be an issue for either vehicle so no real differentiators there. One thing i would say is I wouldn't spend £15k on a TD5 even if it was well sorted with low miles. Rust will creep into the chassis and bulkhead soon enough and you'll see some depreciation. I'd spend tops £10k and the rest on regular maintenance. That's just my opinion though!

    Will this fit?

    Ah ok. Hopefully it'll be plug and play on my TD5 but time will tell! Cheers

    Cheers western. Looking at that thread you mentioned having to buy a new 3 pin econoseal plug. Did the new motor not match up with the existing wiring connections?

    Will this fit?

    Sorry guys, not a very interesting post here but i need a new rear wiper motor for my 2000 TD5 90 commercial, will this one fit? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LAND-ROVER-DISCOVERY-2-TD5-V8-REAR-WIPER-MOTOR-DLB101640/273585801703?epid=25022245782&hash=item3fb2fc09e7:g:q2YAAOSwctJcACDU:rk:3:pf:1&frcectupt=true New ones online seem to cost a packet!
  9. Thanks guys, i'll have a crawl around over the weekend and do some tidying up. Re the slow heating, is there any merit in either removing the viscous fan or installing an electric fan set? A rad muff at £30 is the cheaper option but i'd be worried my intercooler isn't getting the air flow it needs.

    Wolf HD rims - confused

    Is this what you're after? https://www.i-bidder.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/wca/catalogue-id-witham1-10000/lot-4e69bccf-c3d2-4c81-ab44-a9dd00f967d0
  11. Will give it a bash and see if it helps. Are there any other earth points i should be looking at apart from the main battery to chassis strap?
  12. A bit of an update on this one. Matrix has been changed (some knuckle skin was lost along the way, Mo!) and thermostat has also been swapped over. I did the thermostat when i was hungover and accidentally left the water pump hose rubbing off a pulley so ruptured the hose. I then over-tightened the bleed screw and snapped it off. Long story short, i have a new thermostat, new matrix, 2 new hoses and she's still taking an age to heat up!! Is there anything else i should check before buying a rad muff? The viscous fan appears to be working as it should. The temp gauge is a separate issue and i've noticed that if i put the handbrake on the needle moves up slightly, it's all very bizarre. I also have a temperamental ABS light and the 3 amigos also often appear. Any suggestions?

    Oil in my intake

    That's made me feel a bit better about the whole thing, cheers. Looks like i've got not option but to replace a few things and get myself a new cartridge. Better practice my best puppy dog eyes for the missus now....

    Oil in my intake

    I reckon the intercooler is pretty much beyond economic repair but it's also the quantity of oil that has me worried. I'd rather replace the right bits and the right time than do it all, miss the underlying problem and then coat my new shiny bits in some more oil. Is there an oil drain on the TD5 turbos which goes back to the sump?

    Oil in my intake

    Here's a couple of pics showing the state of the intercooler: Seems like a quite a lot of oil but i guess it's been building up for a while now.
