    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    No problem with the parts you changed, as they old ones are in the box, going to look at the filter first, hopefully my angle grinder adjustable key will get the filter base off.

    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    No worries, going to remove the big filter tomorrow if I can get the cap off & give it a good clean, actually looking inside from the bottom plate it looks quite clean, didn't have any big bits fall out when the bottom plate was removed.

    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    Some sludge on inner face of baseplate I cleaned this & the filter with brake cleaner before fitting. Could be gummed up inside, but a strip down will have to wait until the weekend

    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    Tried to drive this morning to go to work, virtually no drive at all, crept out of the drive & down the road, OD slipping a lot, only gripped for about 30 secs, so turned around & came back home, very slowly into my drive. Makes 110 undriveable.

    GKN Overdrive Strip Down

    Well, done a long drive to Wiltshire & back this weekend, OD was fine on the main roads/motorway doing exactly as its meant to, BUT on local roads with it disengaged & sometimes when disengaging it would not disengage cleanly & I had a few occassions of unwanted slippage & taking to long to disengage which meant loosing road speed too, fluid was topped up on before the long trip, going to get some more fluid & change it during this week, may also drop the circular filter & clean it with brake cleaner & fresh ATF before refitting it, if that doesn't stop the unwanted slipping, it'll be removed & stored in garage until I can afford a Roamerdrive unit.

    Importing a non-registered defender

    DVSA [formely DVLA/VOSA] will issue a VIN from their database so it won't be a genuine LR VIN starting SALL*********** They will want to see all paperwork for the new chassis & all the other parts.

    the plain black is a earth, it connects to the bulkhead earth point on 90/110/defenders, you have the wrong main loom for a Series LR vehicle.

    Import Help

    19j engines were not fitted to UK military land rovers, only to civilian vehicles, 11j & 12j are both 4 cylinder diesel non turbo engines, quite usually for UK military to swap engines during a big base maintenance scheduled servicing.

    Yes my kit from Devon 4x4, the led I think can be wired into the switch, so it lights when switch is operated to engage OD, I've been thinking of doing it to my gearknob led.
