    Wiring connectors advise - 1985 110 19J Engine

    Looking at the VIN, I have SALLDHM V - V 3.5L, V8 carb, petrol, Low Compression That surprised me..... looks like the 19J was added 1986/7 from what little data I have on the history.
  3. Hi, sorry for another wiring drama but can anyone please help before I go insane... 1. Whats this 7 pin (one Male and 6 female) connector for please? Off the bulkhead loom, looks to have been largely unused other than reversing switch (Green Brown). Other wires (all females) are White, Yellow White, Lime Green, Purple Orange and Green. 2. These two female connectors Lime Green and White Orange. What are these and where would they connect? 3. Whats this Green (male) and Green Brown(?) female for and where on earth do they connect? Looks to coming from the gearbox - reversing switch perhaps? Looks like a rejoined wire to the Green may not be original. I can't make head or tail of the Haynes wiring diagrams and the card tags I attached 4 years ago..... whoops... Really appreciate any thoughts.

    110 front axle springs - which one where?

    Gents, as always many thanks. Very helpful.
  5. Hi, good afternoon. Question re front axle springs on a 110 (1984). I have inherited LR springs for the front axle (look to have been fitted 5 to 8 years ago with when new bulkhead etc. was fitted). They are standard length and look to be standard load. The longer one (by 10mm) is banded with white paint, the shorter with yellow banding. I've checked the archives etc. but could someone tell me which one is driver side please? Huge thanks again chaps.

    Rear chassis cross member replacement - from where?

    I had the same issue with a 1984 110. I looked the replace the rear half but found I would be welding good metal to something as solid as cheese so I gave that up and sought a replacement whole chassis from a breakers yard (there are "challenges" with this approach I know), but my unit was superb and unblemished for £600, few minor mods like new engine mounts and jobs a good 'un. I'm still fighting with the full ground up rebuild but I know I have a very stable chassis now.

    Breakers in Norfolk?

    Good morning all, quick one - can anyone point me at a LR breaker in Norfolk please? Really struggling to find some key (and heavy) bits and postage costs from Devon, Manchester etc. are getting a bit high..... Huge thanks in advance. Chubby M.

    110 Front Axle replacement - Advice please

    Gentlemen, many thanks for your swift and helpful input. Much appreciated.
  10. Good afternoon and happy New Year all from a forum newbie.... Question (risking it being a silly one). My 1985 110 front axle is truly shot - corroded beyond repair and I'm unable to break it down for refurb. Simple (?) - replace with a salvaged 110 front axle. Id like to replace with as new a unit as possible (2011 PUMA on auction site for example) to ensure swivels / calipers etc. are in decent order - but, these "newer" axles often have ABS. The question: Can I swap out the 1985 for a newer ABS carrying unit and somehow "disable" or bypass the ABS - as there will be no wiring / sensor feeds etc. for it??? Huge thanks in anticipation, Chubby M
