  2. hi my turbos in its way out and I was thinking of getting a new core . do I get a standard one or do I go for the upgrade witch spools up quicker . any thoughts on reliability of an engine with a more pokey turbo ?
  3. hi my fuel gauge has always read low and I have never had a warning light I have 3 wires . from the front to the back they are black green and white at the back .has anybody got any pics of the wires or do I need a new sender ? p.s its a 200tdi 90 defender (1991)
  4. hi all im afraid its come to the stage where I need to think about respraying the landy . can anybody give me any advise on what the best paint is to use and how much I need for a 90 defender not including the roof or the inside as Im keeping the original colour scheme . its red if that makes any difference
  5. this morning I took my cambelt off to find out what exactly was causing it to ride forward .all the pulleys seemed fine until a came to fit the new belt .then I noticed the pump pulley main bolt had worked loose so the pulley could move forward when ever it felt like it .all sorted now thanks for your help.
  6. thanks for that mr hippo ill let you know what happens
  7. hi iv got a 200tdi defender that has the timing belt riding forward .its a 1990 engine its done about 200,000 miles .when I first had it I changed the belt and the original belt had been wearing on the case .since then iv had no problems .I changed the belt for a trip around the highlands .and since then the problems come back . iv used the correct tools to tention the belt and the belt was a daco kit has anybody got any imfo on why this is happening and how to cure it .
  8. cheers guys I was thinking of using a 5 pin relay . what do you think?
  9. I was thinking of using a five pin relay in the same way and connecting it to an ignition switched live so when the keys off so is the power to the relay.what do you guys think?
  10. hi iv decided to fit a low coolant light on my 200tdi so I brought a range rover coolant cap .I assumed it would have made contact when the fluid was low but its the other way round .so it brakes contact when the fluids low .now I have no idea how to wire it .can anybody give me a clue ?
  11. I washed the landy this weekend and while washing it I noticed the rear exhaust rubber was broke .im now thinking it could be the exhaust pipe rubbing against something so iv ordered some new rubbers . fingers crossed
  12. the turbo whistles even if the pipes off and both props were new last year and have been greased monthly .the pulleys are shiny though what you recommend to dull them are you talking about scratching with sand paper or using very fine sand paper.
  13. yes I changed all the belts and sprayed them with belt dressing but still no good
  14. hi all iv got a 200tdi 90 with a squeal that sounds like a bearing at high revs when under load .I changed the cambelt last year the turbo feels good but it has a whistle iv changed the water pump and fitted an alternator . has anybody got any ideas what to look at next
