  1. My 24 year old 200tdi rebuild

    put another 40 odd miles on this afternoon, new temp gauge & sender are working fine, just cracked the 10 hours running time & cracked the 200 miles now.
  2. Side steps

    90 parts book shows just one type of folding side step, the brace from step to chassis is item 11 in page 899 of http://www.retroanaconda.com/landrover/parts_books/90/9_body_chassis_p794-923.pdf which way are you trying to fit the brace it should hang down from the chassis, which puts the brace brace under the tank. like this one https://www.firstfour.co.uk/folding-side-step-for-defender-90-and-110.html not trying to occupy the same space.
  3. Bulkhead Cable Entry - Which Sealant?

    Would car body seam sealer work, it doesn't fully cure & can be removed fairly easily.

    Cheers that's good to know,
  5. 12L makes it a Discovery/Range Rover unit, quite a early one with that serial number. just rebuilt my 200tdi in my 110, they are a strong engine & always seem to be fairly kind to the timing belt, I haven't had one break in 24 years. you can read my thread in the defender forum.

    some of my led gauge lighting is green so it is just to bright for the internal green diffuser in the gauge, the fuel gauge just has a standard small capless bulb in it which is about 1.2 watts & works fine, it might get replaced with a matching VDO vision gauge someday
  7. Diagnosis confirmation needed

    I about a hour away from Callington, always pass the junction on A30 when going to Swindon, are you moving down here permanently then ? I could run over tomorrow if it's any use, I have a 2 hole head gasket here, I have promised it to Mark aka roverv8 on here for his 110 though. but if it'll get your driveable again I can always source another head gasket. PM sent or PM me on here
  8. Engine number is stamped in the horizontal face just below number cylinder injector & glowplug, see my reply & photo in https://forums.lr4x4.com/topic/53987-200tdi-engine-number/?tab=comments#comment-481115 info/pictures of the various land rover engines in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_Rover_engines
  9. Diagnosis confirmation needed

    I see, just hasn't bothered removing the lekky bit.
  10. Diagnosis confirmation needed

    Where abouts in Cornwall ? why have you got the edc stuff on the FIP ? Where did you get the oil cooler pipe spacer clips from ?
  11. My 24 year old 200tdi rebuild

    I like to know what's going on, the fuel gauge does have a green backlight, if I put a green led in it overpowers the gauge orange/red sectors & makes them look washed out,
  12. My 24 year old 200tdi rebuild

    Should have my new boost & oil pressure gauges soon, just had a update from the suppliers.
  13. My 24 year old 200tdi rebuild

    Yes it is the same system but in stainless steel, 200tdi & 19J in 90/110/DEfender use the same type of down pipe to turbo attachment, but the rest of the system hangers are different, mine has the 19J bolt/rubber blocks whereas the Defender 200tdi correct hangers are the pin & rubber ring type. mag sump plug came from Nige's emporium Xcess4x4
  14. My 24 year old 200tdi rebuild

    Yeah, been fiddling behind the gauges, noticed it while out on the temp gauge test drive, will straighten all of them up tomorrow, must of dislodged another wire as my rear view camera has ceased working. so a couple of things to sort tomorrow.
  15. My 24 year old 200tdi rebuild

    rebuilt engine mileage/running hours since first start -- 194 miles & 9.3/10ths hours oh yeah forgot engine hour meter is in a single gauge pod screw to inner face of the brake pedal casing.
