  1. Hi all, can anyone give me a guide price for a wolf grp hard top. has anyone put side windows in one? Cheers.
  2. Thank you chaps, That's the company. Looking at their heavy duty 90 set I don't want the 2 tubes in the front as that basically mirrors the setup I have with the military roll bar and hood sticks. The roll bar just holds the seatbelt mount and annoyingly sits right on the zip for my side windows so I'll get them to put the mount on the front bar and delete the 2nd bar. Thanks for your time chaps I'll get in touch with them this week.
  3. Hi all, I would like to replace my existing hood sticks and roll bar with hoops made of thicker tube. There was a company that did a replacement set that incorporated a mount for the seat belt and door channels. They were at the LRO show a number of years ago but ive lost their info. Does it ring a bell with anyone? cheers
  4. Hi, when your fault finding try to substitute with its standard fitment, a filiment bulb will illuminate any way around whereas most led lamps are polarised. get a simple 12volt bulb style tester with a sharp tip you can poke through the insulation of the cable your testing, a dvm is great but your just checking for voltage not how much is present. it does sound like a bad ground, you will need to trace the cables back to each joint, if the wing indicator is dead there is a break in its cable as it is spliced to the front indicator. try running a cable direct to the -ve of the bulb
  5. Hi all, Does anyone have a supplier for hinge bushes, ? I’ve bought 3 sets from various outlets and found they are all badly made from a much harder plastic than the OE bush, they also have lots of moulding flash to be remove before fitting and all were over sized. Spent over an hour today trying to fit one bush and ended up snapping 3.! I’ll try the dealer tomorrow and see if the OE ones are still available. Cheers..
  6. Just an update for anyone with a similar noise in the future.. As sugested I pulled the exhaust manifold and found it was blowing on #4 cylinder that was replaced, but the noise was unchanged. I bought a replacement flexplate, pulled the transmission and found the flexplate was good and slightly thicker than the replacement I had bought from Ashcroft. The engine was run up without the autobox and no noise..! Looks like the sound is coming from the autobox, there is no change in performance, I replaced the oil & filter which came out clean there were no leaks around the
  7. Thanks again for the replies, Tonight I pulled the Vacum pump and stripped off the air cleaner and pipework so I could see the rear of the head. With the engine running the tick is still there πŸ˜₯ though only as it starts to warm up .? after dousing the back of the head with brake cleaner there is no blowing from the rear of the head as i'd have seen the liquid blow off. So tomorrow I'll refit the vac pump and strip off the manifolds... CheersπŸ‘
  8. Ok thanks for the suggestions, I've checked the headgasket and there is no evidence of blow same with the manifold. It does sound as if it's the rear of the engine/belhousing area. 300TDI tapping noise.mp4
  9. 300TDI tapping noise.mp4 Ok thanks for the suggestions, I've checked the headgasket and there is no evidence of blow same with the manifold. It does sound as if it's the rear of the engine/belhousing area.
  10. Hi thanks for the reply, I've checked the shaft & arms when i adjusted the tappets the caps are free and move easily and none are cracked.! when i checked with the sethoscope there was no trace of the ticking noise. again thanks for the help.πŸ‘
  11. Hi Chaps, I have a 300TDI in my auto 90 however it has recently developed a tapping noise, the noise appears to come from the rearish of the engine as it seems louder when standing beside the wing but almost disapears when standing in front and seems to be 3 ticks. I have removed the aux belt and the nose is still there so it is not an ancillary, I have adjusted the tapets and checked all around the engine with a stethoscope and cannot locate the noise. The ticking gets faster as the RPM rise but do not get louder, I have had a look at the flexplate throught the inspection hole
  12. Ok no worries i’ve also drawn a blank, its got a 5mm bolt in it at mo , and will probably stay like it till i change the cable πŸ™„ Once again thank you for your time it’s much appreciated πŸ‘
  13. Hi western it’s originally from a 300tdi D1 auto the pin is approx 5mm Its the distance to the clip is the issue I’ll measure it later to see if i can buy one - thats the issue who wants to sell just the one... thanks for your time..πŸ‘
  14. Morning chaps, I need a new clevis pin and clip for the kickdown linkage on my 300TDI auto. The kickdown cable is p/n STC1583 however I only need the clevis pin but I'm unable to find a p/n for it anywhere on the web, I don't want to buy a complete cable just for the clip. This is what it looks like:
  15. Thats great thank you for the prompt reply.πŸ‘
  16. Hi Ian, thanks for the reply is the sender adaptor a genuine part? I had the cooler pipes made up with braided hose to follow the chassis but after 10yrs they are due a change, I used a sender adaptor from merlin motorsport to provide a fitting for my temp sender but yours looks much neater. I'll buy the discovery pipes and see if i can get them modified to follow the chassis. As you can see from the photo date, the cooler has been working well with no issues for 10 years but I am swapping the engine next week so going to update the cooler also. Cheers.πŸ‘
  17. Thanks for the Info chaps, It was Ian's build thread I was looking for as I had seen the cooler setup on there, nice job your doing on the build. I was looking for pipes that follow the chassis rails, but I'll buy a set of disco pipes and see how they look. cheers.πŸ‘
  18. Hi Chaps, I am replacing the gearbox oil cooler on my 300Tdi Auto 90, when I built it 10 yrs ago I had the box to cooler pipes custom made with fittings for a temp sender & the cooler mounted to the support bars. However I've had a new disco cooler (esr2008) knocking about and using this oil cooler will allow me to remove the support bars to fit a larger intercooler. Can anyone tell me if I can use the Discovery oil cooler pipes for a factory looking fit or would using the 50th anniversary cooler pipes be preferable. thanks in advance.
  19. Hi Matt, With the NAS step there should be an insert for the chassis comprising of 2 pipes welded to a piece of plate, theses are the anti crush tubes, these are to stop the bolts causing the issues you have. check to see if the anti crush tubes are still there, possible the bolts have been removed and the tubes have dropped. you wont be able to remove the crossmember, however you may be able to put a drift in from the rear and tap the face flat Crush tubes.: Regards Gren.
  20. Hi thanks for the reply, I was aware the seal is reversed - unlike the person who fitted the last one.πŸ˜–
  21. Hi chaps, I'm in the middle of a rebuild on a 300tdi, however I need some help with sourcing some parts. The front cover crank oil seal was the original cortico type seal p/n:ERR4575, is there any benefit in fitting the later type seal p/n:ERR7143. Does the later type seal replace the oil thrower on the back of the crank damper.? I am also looking for a part number or supplier for the brass "T" piece on the turbo that connects the wastegate & injection pump diaphragm housing. this is not shown as a separate part in the parts manuals. Cheers.
  22. many thanks for that, Jaca is our 1st stop off the boat I'll add it to my route. Cheers
  23. I'd not go with the raptor - I've found it chips easily on corners, on a chassis this will allow water behind it and it will creep under the rest of the coating and it will peel off in small sheets. If you dont like the galv look paint the chassis with T wash to get a key then use black chassis paint - "the paint man" does a good quality chassis paint If you really want to use a coating you can get the chassis plastic coated - I've done this on bumpers and wheel carriers, it's very durable but more suited to a show or road vehicle and will eventually get damaged off road or from ston
  24. Thanks for the reply I'll do that.
