    Silicone Hoses

    one of my intercooler silicone elbows failed, they came from Alisport a few years ago, recently replaced by a full set from MKPerformancehoses off ebay shop & he has a facebook page too, well made set.

    Engine Breather Oil Catch Tank

    a catch tank with the breather rerouted into it will keep the air cleaner fre of oil, so go for it.

    Gearstick replacement

    you have to screw the new knob on, it will cut its own thread into the insert inside the knob,

    Gearstick replacement

    AFAIK the actual gearstick is the same, mine was changed from a LT77 to a stumpy R380 years ago & gearstick swapped straight over as did the turret, recently fitted a Slick Shift kit but the gearstick top section remains my original part. looking at 110 parts book, same part number for LT77 & R380 upper gearstick was FRC7860 now UKE000080 https://www.brit-car.co.uk/product.php/133724/0/gear_lever_lt77_r380_def R380 gearchange knob is BTR9270 https://www.brit-car.co.uk/product.php/110587/0/gear_knob_plastic_r380____defender_1987_to_2006

    Engine Breather Oil Catch Tank

    my 200tdi is over 24 years old with the original cyclonic breather, I just wipe out the air filter housing at each filter change, hasn't caused me any problems.

    oil thermostatic valve

    my 200tdi has one washer on that spring, which is as it can from LR, I know this because I bought my engine brand new.

    oil thermostatic valve

    Pretty sure this is the correct spring, all the 4 cylinder diesel engine [except 300tdi] use the same oil filter head & oil stat fittings when engine has the oil cooler fitted https://www.johnrichardssurplus.co.uk/land-rover/defender-1985/cooling-heating/land-rover-oil-cooler-bulb-spring-erc3727.html

    Correct Swivel Pin housing

    Yes mine were replaced a few years ago with the teflon coated version, I believe mine were genuine LR at around 220 quid each, fitted by the garage I used to take my 110 for servicing. new chromed haven't been available for a few years due to EU legislation on chroming process/use. the link you posted in latest reply looks to be a coated housing just going on the colour.

    Correct Swivel Pin housing

    110 parts book shows original as FRC2644 for the swivel ball, my 110 is same year as yours. item 6 page 414 in http://www.retroanaconda.com/landrover/parts_books/110/5_axles_suspension_steering_p398-471.pdf this one supersedes FRC2644 https://www.brit-car.co.uk/product.php/86665/0/swivel_pin_housing___defender___discovery_1___range_rover_classic
