  1. I did this last week whilst changing my clutch... What a difference- no leaks!!!! I also finally got round to changing my gearbox mounts to Glencoyne ones and the vibration has halved. Well worth the effort.
  2. 38 quid is extortionate! πŸ˜… ill have a crack making one myself. Thanks for the responses πŸ™
  3. Thanks for the responses. It seems I have a variation of the above, with a 90 degree bend in. May have to modify or make one out of a bar as it looks difficult to get hold of.
  4. Hi, whilst splitting my LT230 from LT77 on my 90 (orig from a Disco), I have snapped this U-shaped rod that connects the box diff lock transfer arm (below) with 2 split pins to the LT230 itself. Any idea what part this is as I just cannot find it on the exploded diagrams? Thanks, Jake.
  5. @ianmayco68 Ian! 5 weekends later and still no notifications πŸ˜…. I'm dying in anticipation to see the end result πŸ˜†
  6. Cheers gents. My Defender is nothing special, (only to me haha) and was really just throwing it out there to see how easy it would be. It would be a permanent import as I'd be relocating to WA so perhaps makes more sense to sell and re-buy. So this is absolutely a no πŸ˜† Good to know also. I think this has answered my question! Thanks for the help
  7. I may have a work opportunity in Australia requiring relocation. I was wondering if anyone on here has exported a Landy from UK to Australia; whether it would worth doing, any advice on shipping, and any idea of cost etc., from past experience. Cheers Jake
  8. Same for me, I have a RR classic rear axle on my 90 with 7/16 UNF thread. I learnt this when trying to put metric bolts in.....
  9. Mine have been sitting in the garage for 6 months after reading a similar recommendation at the start of the year. Can’t wait to change them! Thanks for sharing (and for reminding me)!
  10. Yes! They are really sought after and expensive. e.g. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/USED-Genuine-Land-Rover-Defender-90-full-front-and-rear-roof-head-lining-2-2-TDC/333771344769?hash=item4db6528b81:g:YtYAAOSwWSZfm-ty
  11. Genuine VDO but without the TD5 decal is much cheaper at around Β£100, although still not for everyone's budget. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VDO-Cockpit-Vision-Tachometer-Rev-Counter-52mm-6000-RPM-Not-lesser-4000RPM/293666655060?hash=item445fe58b54:g:72kAAOSw3fFeQb0~ I have a cheap one like what @western posted and have had no issues.
  12. I am currently not in the UK so can't take a photo in situ. One bracket goes into the sill top with a support leg into the already rivnutted hole (both shown in red). The rear support attaches at a 90 degree onto the outrigger where the fuel tank is mounted (in blue). Maybe need to chop the 90 degree on off and bolt a bracket to it like @landroversforever says. Idk. Was hoping for an easier solution! πŸ˜“
  13. I know, that is the issue. I was hoping that someone on here may found a workaround. I can always attach the one support letter to the chassis and then try and find somewhere to weld a bracket to for the other but it won’t be easy.
  14. Hi, apologies if this has been raised on here before but can't find it searching. I have a pair of the tubular fire and ice style steps that I want to put on my 90. The passenger side one goes on of course no problem (see image). Has anyone any images of how they modified the drivers side one to avoid mounting on the outrigger that the fuel tank is on? I'm certain people must have done this but can't find any good threads on it. Thanks Jake
  15. Wow. I sincerely apologise for upsetting you both with my poor use of language. I’ll do better in future πŸ™„πŸ€£
