    A few queries about my Defender project

    Cheers for that, but I was more wanting images from a 300Tdi.

    A few queries about my Defender project

    Boom, it's an Albion! Anyway, moving back to my original question does anyone have any pictures of the routes that the cables and pipework take around the engine?

    Nope. You've just said one that you didn't say earlier. One of your previous choices was right...

    Nope, sorry. Not a Scammell. Yes, it's a big lorry. 8 wheeler no less. Project is coming on, and the workshop helps, that's for sure.

    A few queries about my Defender project

    Ooohh, I could give out a prize here for the correct answer. The Beetle is a 1303s that I'm in the (very slow) process of getting running and road worthy for my daughters 17th, although I'd prefer her to have this 90. Now, the lorry is something a little rarer. Any ideas? It's from the 50's...

    A few queries about my Defender project

    Hey ho, me again. So I have a few other queries if you'd be so kind. I have replaced the engine with one out of my old Discovery auto (converted to a manual pump, swapped out all the other Discovery bits) and I've got it running! What a result! But I'd like to know the routes of all the pipework around the back and sides of the engine as all mine was melted. Could one of you lovely people take a few pictures of the route of the breather pipe that goes around the back of the engine from the cyclone filter to the air intake? Also the EGR valve loom, and any of the loom that goes around the back of the engine? Anyway, for your enjoyment... Two engines side by side. One is an EDC auto from a Discovery, the other is the Defender engine. Discovery engine with everything swapped over from the Defender engine, including a brand new clutch Engine bay cleaned off and ready to take the new engine New engine in!!!

    A few queries about my Defender project

    I'd certainly not even entertain the idea of taking on a project like this if I didn't have the means to do the work myself. Parts are cheap enough, but labour is something else. And I'm not even sure I'd trust anyone to do the work for me. I'm not a newbie in doing this kind of work, and labour was never going to be part of the cost equation. I was a little flippant with my reply to you for which I apologise, but that was only because I was asking a fairly simple question about a simple thing and you just came in questioning whether it was actually worth it or not. If there was going to be a third party involved then I'd probably agree that it wasn't worth doing, but I'll be doing all the work myself, I've already got the majority of the parts, so it's only going to be my time that's used. And I wouldn't own numerous Land Rover's if I didn't expect to do work on them. If I had to ship them out for work to be done I'd be broke! But as a closer, I value everyone's input and I always appreciate someone taking the time to reply to a question, and I try to offer my experience when I can. It's what makes this forum so great.

    A few queries about my Defender project

    These are fine, no pitting, unlike the ones on my 110. But even with them being a bit scabby they haven't torn up the seals yet and don't leak. I fitted some of the Teflon ones to an old 90 I used to have, and the coating started rubbing off almost straight away. I didn't have the 90 long so it wasn't really a problem, but I suspect they'd have had to have been replaced again fairly soon. They were Sh*tpart swivels mind you...

    Perfect! I need not have spent a couple of hours pulling them off my old Discovery then!

    A few queries about my Defender project

    Thanks for the reply. It's the swivel bearing that's worn, and I'm sure the bearings are fine as the wheel rotates fine and doesn't make a noise. I'll just leave the anti-roll bar off and that'll be that. Precisely. I've got a fair few bit's an pieces and it's not an expensive thing to repair. I will be replacing the engine because this one is a bit knackered but that's not too hard as I have a spare engine. The Defender itself didn't cost a huge amount and when it's finished and MOT'd it'll be worth a whole lot more than I paid. And (hopefully) it'll make an ideal first car for my Daughter. Thanks, that's what I hoped it'd be.

    A few queries about my Defender project

    Thank you for your concern, but yes, it's worth it. I've already got the majority of the bits to fix it up and currently it's running, driving, and stopping. I just needed some knowledge on the questions above, that's all.
  15. Hi all I've recently acquired a P reg Defender 90 which has been used on a farm for a few years. It's rough. I've a list as long as my arm for bits to fix up and replace and it's getting longer and longer! Anyway, I've just found out that the reason why the N/S wheel was always sloping inwards was because the swivel bearings have pretty much given up and need replacing. Are they bearings top and bottom or are they railko like on my 110? I have the front axle off of my R reg Discovery and the swivels were really good, but it had ABS. Are swivels, bearings, mountings etc different between ABS and non-ABS? And while underneath I found that it doesn't have any anti-roll bars. Is this correct? My '84 110 doesn't have them which is understandable, but I'd have thought a late 90's 90 would have. I don't mind if it didn't have them from new but I don't want to turn up to an MOT and they turn me away because they're not fitted. The front chassis mounts exist (albeit bent) but the rear mounts are missing anyway as the chassis has been welded up. Pictures for your amusement: Cheers all.
