    Deleting dim dip from loom

    Dim dip is no longer a legal requirement it was ditched back in 2006, drl's are much better & more reliable, I removed my dim dip years ago, as it kept failing.

    easiest option disco 200 tdi or 300 tdi

    Get a Disco 200tdi & use that block & internals, drop your existing cylinder head & manifolds, engine mounts,timing case on to it that way you don't have any problems changing exhaust/turbo. or strip existing engine & have the cam bearings replaced.

    Deleting dim dip from loom

    I used this diagram to make my own loom to add relays for dip & main beam, uprated the wires from relays to headlights, took the 12v power supply direct from alternator terminal, changed the headlights to new crystal lens bowls & osram night breaker lights

    Deleting dim dip from loom

    Remove the Pink case dim dip unit & in the base socket join the 2 blue/red trace wires together.
  5. I guess you won't be using them for more parts then, Cylinder head looks great.
  6. IIRC when I did my 200tdi rebuild I smeared the stat housing gasket with hylomar.

    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    Tried to remove the soleniod but I haven't got a spanner thin enough or the correct size [26mm] to fit between the casing & solly body, so it'll have to wait.

    Rear light loom

    Loom from engine bay to rear still goes through chassis, then out of right main rail inner face up into right rear corner, then across back of fuel tank to left side then up into left rear corner, it cannot go through the rear crossmember as it would get snagged by the towing bracket bolts.

    Dash centre console panel pre Td5

    Managed to get my new CB fitted to the dash, had to fit it below the stereounit & the control head couldn't fit on the slopped area as it would interfere with the stereo's screen, & it has a 9 pin D sub connection on the rear so that stopped trying to fit it in the upper area.
  20. Would like to request photo's of your dash centre switch/radio panels, if any of you have one of these I need to decide on a interior mod of my dash to safely & securely accommodate my new cd/radio unit https://forums.lr4x4.com/topic/104622-flip-up-screen-stereocd/ Can't decide on the Mudstuff panel -- https://www.mudstuff.co.uk/products/mud-stuff/mud-defender-console.html or the Bolt on bits RDX panel -- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RDX-Command-Console-Original-Best-Easy-Fit-Tdi-Td5/231476808374?hash=item35e517cab6:g:8SQAAOSw04ZcbXRH

    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    Piston & O ring are fine as is the relief valve parts. IIRC the 4 long springs move the brake cone from engaged to disengage position Haven't opened the unit up yet, been busy doing garden clearing work here at home

    300tdi has a 2nd temp sender on the top of cylinder head for the EGR system, 200 in both Defender & Discovery have the gauge temp sender in thermostat housing.
  24. Ask PaulMc on here, he is a wizard finding out what connector are correct.
