  1. my workshop manual shows max power at 4000 rpm is 50 kW [67HP] & max torque at 1800 rpm is 155Nm [114 lbft]
  2. Please photo a wider view of the dash/gearbox tunnel area so we can see how much difference there is to a UK vehicle.
  3. just watched the unveiling video from Frankfurt motor show [it's on youtube] McGovern keeps mentioning 'reductive & verticality' what the heck is that all about, why not just say the design is modern more space inside & the rear end is vertical just the same as the original Series/90/110/defender
  4. Without a overall photo we can't say which way up it should be.
  5. Mine still has the black & silver Land Rover 110 badge on the front, I don't refer to it as a defender, it normally gets called 110 or truck.
  6. My 110 is a 1989 so pre defender years, so was similar to yours before I modded it for intermittent front wipers using genuine parts. check the wires into the motor park switch agree with these photo's [taken from mine] the plug from the main loom will only fit one way.
  7. No step by step builds as such, but plenty of vehicle builds/restoration posts in the member vehicles frum.
  8. the ramp tells the park switch to operate to switch the power on or off, Could be the ramp of the gear inside wiper motor is 180 degrees out, has your wiper motor been replaced with a non land rover item ?
  9. looks full of rust, clean coolant should be either green or blue for a 200 or 300Tdi engine universal anti freeze or ethylene glycol based up to 50% mix currently have this https://www.halfords.com/motoring/engine-oils-fluids/antifreeze/halfords-silicate-antifreeze-concentrate-2-litres in my recently rebuilt 200tdi
  10. 12s sockets still around on older vehicles & trailers, so the info is still valid.
  11. Either way will get you into the 2 wheel drive in high range (largas)
  12. Suspect both are longer wheelbase than we think,
  13. 12S caravan sockets have a charging pin so tow vehicle can keep a onboard caravan battery charging while driving. https://www.westerntowing.co.uk/blog/caravan-12s-wiring-diagram/ Pin 2 live 12v with ignition on & Pin 4 permanent live says direct from battery,
  14. Don't like the solid upper side panel should be all glass or plain solid panel. rear lights look weird & to far in too. probably look better in the metal.
  15. L is Not low range it's Long or high. As noted by Red110
  16. I was going on the info added by Red110, so if L is long or high range & 2 is 2 wheel drive, & C is short or low range, 2 wheel drive is rear right in L long range,
  17. As L = high range then the current position would be 4 wheel drive High, for every day use it needs to be back & right to 2 wheel drive
  18. Looks to 'car' based rather than light truck load carrying ability in any circumstances.
  19. Not on a Santana as it uses the older LR Series 3 type 4x4 set up, that's why you have auto locking front hubs
  20. Could be terminals in wrong way up or just one stopping the insert fitting.
  21. Clicky link for above https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AMPHIBIOUS-VEHICLE/163845391545?_trkparms=aid%3D1110001%26algo%3DSPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20131003132420%26meid%3De7cb721266684933b1955157e2d38a09%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D264454679696%26itm%3D163845391545%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
