    Bolt kits ?????????

    I see you are in Portugal, hence the request to a website. I have used Wright off Road in the past and have found them to be good. http://www.wrightsautosupplies.co.uk/ http://www.wrightsautosupplies.co.uk/product-category/land-rover/assorted-restoration-packs/
  4. I used to have similar issues and it was caused by the rear loom running inside the chassis becoming chaffed and then shorting intermittently. It was driving me mad as some days the vehicle worked and then it did not. In the end I had to resort to an car election who discovered this and replaced the loom outside the chassis which solved the issue.
  5. it is worth having a read of this. It is about the Jaguar Land Rover classic works and what they keep and replace on vehicles. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/cars/classic/restoration-drama-inside-jaguar-land-rover-classic-works/

    Odd GKN overdrive behaviour

    Have you remembered to clean out the high pressure filter? See below courtesy of Buckeye Triumphs write up on the J type over drive. Plus the picture from the GKN user manual. http://www.buckeyetriumphs.org/technical/jod/JOD2/JOD2.htm
  7. Western. Thanks. I will post pictures once fitted.
  8. As per the title, what is this part and where does it bolt to? It is the silver painted part I have laying on the transfer box. Peter
  9. David, on checking today Reb78 is correct. There is only an inch or so behind the overdrive before the chassis cross member on my 110. My preference would be a deeper sump. I also agree with Reb78 about a drain plug so that one does not need to take all bolts out to drain the oil.
  10. Sorry - found one now. Also a photo of the maximum overdrive one installed. I was thinking of instead of the deep sump as per maximum overdrive. Just a spacer using the original cover plate, as per my very poor excel mock up.
  11. Vulcan Bomber, I will take pictures and post them on Wednesday of the GKN unit. Peter

    Removing bitumen headlining glue stuff?

    The other stuff to use is tar remover. Just spray it on and then scrap off the softened residue. That way you do not need to use a heat gun.
  13. Vulcan Bomber, did you get your overdrive and make a spacer? I am at the stage where I am looking for somebody to make one for me so was wondering who in the South West you would recommend? Peter

    Squealing fan belt

    This is a website that I use for parts diagrams and then links to who sell the items at what price. It shows no Washer on the long bolt as per above. https://www.landroverworkshop.com/diagrams/engine/300tdi/alternator_53172
  15. Uniformed, I am doing the same thing when rebuilding my land rover 110. I am replacing the door skins with galvanised skins as I do not want to be repeating the process in a couple of years time. Reasons for me is I can't fettle steel so will rely on aftermarket people for replacement skins. Now if I could afford stainless steel I would. As for the chassis, bulkhead, A, B & C pillars and sills they have all been galvanised. For the high tension steel bolts where I have not replaced with stainless bolts - and even where I have and have dissimilar metals I have coated the exposed one in duralac to hopefully slow the corrosion down.
