  1. green ignition live terminal 4 red light green terminal 2 brown light green terminal 3 These are the standard colours and switch terminal ID for Series 3 , and would appear to relate to your picture ? cheers Steve b
  2. ...Is that a Toyota LC camera platform ? Sort of reinforces the comments of several in this thread about the right vehicle for harsh environments ... Just saying... it could have been an existing model from the range or even better a heritage rebuilt 107 Series1 .....This launch has to be the biggest pile of nothing that has ever been on the internet and that is some achievement Steve b
  3. Is the crank pulley bolt tight ? Also what is the damper rubber like ? If it was main bearings the noise would be there all the time , usually worse on over-run . Big ends usually worse on acceleration . Does the oil light go out normally ? Do you have a spare set of injectors to swap in ? and have you tried cracking one injector pipe nut at a time at the injector with it ticking over . Is there any noticeable unevenness when running? cheers Steve b
  4. Yes , the earth connections provide the completion of whatever circuit is active . The drawback with the standard LR system is the earth points are localised to where the system items are - in the case of your rear lights it is a screw through the aluminium of the wheel box and as such relies on a good connection through the steel screw into aluminium and then good electrical connection between the body work and the chassis and bulkhead - each bolted section or joint is another potential bad electrical joint and the older the LR the more likely a bad connection - hence my reasoning to run an earth wire connected to each local earth point and then back to the common earth point which on yours is by the clutch pedal box on the upper footwell under the bonnet . The main Battery earth is direct to the back of the transfer box and there should be another between the starter mounting bolt and the chassis . Another added from the bulkhead common earth to the engine somewhere nearby is worth the effort , it doesn't need to be particularly heavy gauge . cheers Steve b
  5. It sounds like a sticking piston in the clutch slave cylinder - the 2A is very different to a Series3 though . Welcome to LR4x4 , you will find it an interesting and useful source of LR tech of all sorts cheers Steve b
  6. Yes - common connector means all the sockets inside are connected to each other so provide multiple positions for one supply or earth in this case . When I built my loom for my 109 I included earth returns for everything back to a common point on the bulkhead and then to the main battery to body earth point . I'm sure that's why I've only had a couple of bulbs fail in 14yrs and 130k miles cheers Steve b
  7. Does it have a return spring ? It should be hooked from the pedal arm to a plate attached to the upper of the 6 bolts holding the pedal box to the bulkhead in the footwell . With the return spring holding the pedal up remove the cover plate on the top of the pedal box ( 6 screws ) and feel the pushrod for slack side to side at MC end . there should be small movement showing that the pushrod is not in contact with the piston end . Adjustment is via the two nuts on the pushrod - one either side of the trunnion pivot . The return spring must be in place and working . From the factory manual cheers Steve b
  8. Check the pushrod clearance on the brake master cylinder and also the return spring for the pedal is in place and working . cheers Steve b
  9. You are right . It could be worth pulling no.1 plug and checking TDC is correct with a screwdriver and rocking it back and forth past the mark before you start the procedure cheers Steve b
  10. Swapping the back out to test on the road is a quick job , why not do that to start with ? As snagger said it then negates messing around with the speedo too. Just a thought Steve b
  11. If you change to a series 3 speedo you will need to change the cable too . Why does the 200Tdi necessitate a change ? As I understand it you don't need to inform DVSA , but it could be noted at your next MOT if you ask the tester log it as an advisory cheers Steve b
  12. Interesting , it seems inconsistent with this type of thing , I recently removed a 5 bearing N/A diesel from an early 2a Series and fitted a 3 bearing petrol that the owner had sourced from someone off Ebay that had broken the vehicle and scrapped it prior to advertising the remaining parts . The diesel was shown on the V5 and I did go through the potential hassles DVLA may come back with , especially with the fuel type change but the new V5 appeared after about 4 weeks , all correct . The only supporting paperwork that went with the application was a copy of the receipt from the seller and written confirmation from the owner that the requested changes were true . Turner Engineering may be prepared to confirm the engine no. to the capacity and original vehicle type it was fitted to ? cheers Steve b
  13. You may find it worthwhile to get in touch with an independent Weld Inspector for a chat about what it is you are doing , The Welding Institute should be able to give you all the Inspectors in your area . For example , the standards and procedures introduced for Building Steels in 2014 are less involved than coding and obviously covers S275 and S355 steel grades . It does sound like you are approaching this at a professional level and that's a good thing , some of the welding and indeed fabrication design too that I've seen over the years has been appalling . SimonR on here has considerable experience of manufacturing for the LR marketplace . All the very best with your endeavours cheers Steve b
  14. Welcome to the forum T0M How far have you got with it ? Do you have a multimeter to check volts or continuity ? The basic colours are much the same for this as earlier series 3 looms so studying an earlier diagram might help to familiarise yourself with basic circuit colours and a look at Terri-anns site gives you a list of function for colour including later Tdi systems . As you work through it just ask on here as each query comes up , this forum is tech. based and no question is not worth asking cheers Steve b
  15. 3 to 5 degrees BTDC static then check it when running with a timing light . cheers Steve b
