  1. For vibration damping on Discovery to make it more car like, never used on Defender models.
  2. If your using non Land Rover gauges get the matching senders as well, I swapped from LR senders/gauges to VDO items.
  3. Yes still working fine, Oil temp sender screws into forward edge of the oil filter housing, between the arms of the injection pump to engine block bracket as shown in photo, there is a big screw blanking cap [item 5] on the diagram just below the hand drawn oil temp sender PRC4372, it comes out & the oil temp sender screws in. the female spade connector slides on to the sender circular terminal, if you use a fully insulated terminal you will have to cut part of the sleeve away to allow it to fit the sender.
  4. Other members will respond when they are able, any other posts have been deleted, there is no need to put it in other forums which are not related to the vehicle model, only the post above is visible to all other members.
  5. Yes FWB will be able to supply suitable bolts But they will not recognise Land Rover part numbers. if you get all the numbers from the parts book, then go on LRSeries website & enter each number in turn the results usually give the size & thread type in the info below the item photo.
  6. Oil pressure for the engine, No idea if there is a oil temp sender for that auto box,
  7. Incorrectly reconnected when they refitted the lights is my guess.
  8. Yes to the bearing shell notch on same side then that will mean the cap is fitted in the correct direction. there maybe a a number denoting which cylinder/rod set stamped into each cap & rod [there is on my 200Tdi's conrods]
  9. I think some of my caps [1989 110CSW] are genuine & some are Allmakes, or all 4 might be Allmakes, no given any problems, I usually warm them in hot water, quickly dry, put a blob of grease or axle oil inside & shove them in place. the grip better as they cool down.
  10. Conrods & caps are normally marked as pairs & must be fitted the correct orientation, What engine have you got ?
  11. Think my current tank is a Allmakes [now Britpart] it got painted with a few coats Galvafriod primer & then vehicle chassis black gloss on top, I found a galvanised stone guard on ebay, painted it, it chassis black, put a layer of sealant between tank & guard to keep moisture out, been OK sofar 7 years on.
  12. Elring composite gasket like the existing one, I tried a MLS one a while ago & ended up changing back to a Elring as the MLS allowed oil/coolant to mix.
