  1. You wouldn't fit & it would be to hot for you Filling with air & submerging it in water would show any leakage by bubbles escaping, not sure how you could seal the connections & get air in though.
  2. A blocked or restricted matrix wouldn't help the glow. As for the state it will only fit one way, where the struts are doesn't matter I think that stamping motorad is a parts name used by elring https://www.elringparts.co.uk/Brands/Motorad
  3. Head gasket you have is the normal composite type, so that should be fine,
  4. Which head gasket type did you fit - - - laminated steel.or the normal composite type, I used a laminated one & had oil in coolant issues, replaced it with a composite type & it was cured. I found oil & coolant between the laminated layers, this was all prior to my engine rebuild.
  5. Change the battery earth from the negative terminal to one of the main gearbox to transfer box bolts, that's where my battery earth connects, as well as another earth from engine below alternator to chassis part of left engine mounting, clean any paint & dirt off to get a clean sound connection.
  6. Most heavy duty roof racks had 4 additional corner struts to spread the load further down the body to,
  7. Yes L W Vass are still in business, but just looked at their website, they look to have moved from ex military parts & vehicles to fire service equipment & vehicle servicing.
  8. Linley had the 'linley' inlaid to the wood strip on glovebox as in this photo
  9. If rehoning on the bores cleans them up, with out a full rebore to .040 then you may get away with rehoning & new piston ring set of .020 there are mobile companies that can rebore engines in situ, they should be able to carryout a rehoning of the bores https://www.google.com/search?q=mobile+engine+rebores&oq=mobile+engine+rebore&aqs=chrome.0.0j69i57.7012j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  10. Would need boring out & forming a recess for the flange to sit in, then be pressed into place, Engineering workshop would do that work, not a do at home job.
  11. A stuck oil ring was contributary to my 200tdi's heavy oil usage, 0.040 oversize is the max rebore size for Tdi engines so that stuck oil ring won't help at all. Turners can supply replacement 0.040 oversize pistons, https://www.turnerengineering.co.uk/stc-2982-piston-assembly-1-c2x26617381 if the bores are badly damaged these flanged liners can be used to restore it to standard bore size.https://www.turnerengineering.co.uk/su351027-flanged-liner-c2x21683550
  12. I missed the link, so as not to duplicate stuff, I've deleted my previous reply. The old 2.5 2,5 n/a & td engines had a gauze in the oil filler/breather cap.
  13. I used the VHT gold paint on my engine block during the rebuild, it has remained in place, haven't noticed any missing areas, I'll use the same on my calipers when we get some warmer/dryer weather.
  14. War wound, bash it flat & rivet a plate on the inside.
  15. might even be corrosion inside the flasher unit, I had water in one of mine once.no idea how it got water in there.
  16. Pretty sure they are the same inner & outer diameters. 110 springs are much bigger diameter, 110 rear spring seats are NRC4317 these are approximately 168mm diameter where 90 spring seats are approximately 152mm, So if you have 110 rear spring in error there would be a lot of sideways play across the diameter of the smaller seat.
  17. Springs seats on 90 front & rear are the same, as are range rover classic & original Discovery. Only 110 rear spring seats & springs are a larger diameter. Pattern parts may have some slight difference, I would say the new springs are not to spec as genuine LR springs, Once the springs, seats & retainers are bolted down the springs shouldn't move.
  18. Wrong part number, should be as above
  19. Spacer https://www.brit-car.co.uk/search.php?query=ERC7974&xBrand=&part_type=&xSupplierID=&product-sort=&xPerPage=10 Not shown on diagram but it's immediately below item 13 in the parts list on page 206 in 110 parts book 200tdi engine section http://www.retroanaconda.com/landrover/parts_books/110/3_engine_200TDI_300TDI_V8_p168-299.pdf
  20. The VIN plate is on the brake pedal housing, its a shame we conot read it.
  21. Longer alternator/water pump belt part number I used is Gates 6222MC part number AVX10x1050La = 10 mm wide x 1050 mm long, this makes fitting much easier. Here is my 11L 200tdi alt & belts
  22. The alternator needs to move away from the engine to tension the belt. The adjuster bar is the wrong way around, change it so the long slot is at the alternator & the single bolt is attached with a spacer to the block, I used a slightly longer belt to make fitting easier.
  23. Put some injector cleaner/lubricant in the tank & go for a decent long drive to get everything to full working temperature.
