  1. What snagger said - official figure is 250 torques or f*** tight!
  2. I'm not sure LR are being as cynical as you make out... in their day the old ones were better than a lot of cars available to the average farmer... hydraulic brakes, synchros on the gears, heater, windscreen wipers, that sort of luxury! Also nothing attracts the same devotion as the first of something - no-one's cherishing Discoveries like they are older Range Rovers, no-one cherishes Series 3's like they do Series 1's, etc. etc. with very few exceptions. Not sure that makes one better or worse than the other - the original minis are classics but you'd probably sooner have a modern one to go on a long journey or commute in, even if they are a tad more complicated Modern laws (safety, environment, etc.) and modern customers (beyond a few die-hard masochists) want modern vehicles.
  3. COMPARED TO WHERE THE SINISTER ILLUMINATI LIZARD PEOPLE DEMAND THEY GO IN ORDER TO DELIBERATELY RUIN CARS FOR EVERYONE, AS IS THEIR STATED MISSION! NOW YOU KNOW THE TRUTH THIS MESSAGE WILL SELF-DESTRUCT, LIKE ALL THESE FANGLED MODERN THINGS WHAT AREN'T AS GOOD AS WHAT THEY USED TO BE, EEEEH, OOOH ME KNEES....
  4. now I'm wondering if this is the same guy that had the D2 on Unimog axles that was about 10ft tall and equally stupid?
  5. "They haven't seen the car but they've already had this idea in their minds that we've screwed it up" Sounds like the first half of this thread for starters
  6. Yeah, it makes me think "what a prat, bet he'd sell any old cack"
  7. Advice from the last concrete guy I used was a wheelie bin is an excellent way to move concrete - wheelbarrows can't take the weight! Also worth looking for mini-mixer companies that might be able to get their truck up your back passage save a lot of faff.
  8. Did you get any sensors with the gauges?
  9. If you get bored of the 4.6 I might be in the market for one down the line
  10. Also they can only be fitted to certain later vehicles can't they?
  11. What Gazzar said - also those colours are not LR colours; Green is switched fused ignition live in a Series, White is ignition live Red/white is gauge illumination Light green is the regulated side of the voltage regulator which you probably don't want for aftermarket gauges. Green/black is fuel sender (std S3) Green/blue is water temp (std. S3) There's no standard oil pressure sender on Series, Green/Brown was for oil temperature, the Range Rover diagram suggests light green / brown is the std. colour for oil pressure gauge.
  12. 99% of the time when electrics are doing something weird that affects more than 1 thing it's a dodgy earth.
  13. Your easiest option is a V8 gearbox from something earlier - any V8 box will work you just need to swap flywheels to suit. That said, I don't think the electronic-shift boxes are rocket surgery but I've not had access to one to play with to really find out.
  14. I have a theory that it's big 4-pot diesels that kill LR gearboxes as they are putting out 4 big thwacks per rev, while an I6 or V8 is dividing its torque over more "beats" per turn and smoothing the shocks out. Also if it's got a DMF that might help as people rarely have those in clunky old diesel conversions - guessing there's a reason modern manufacturers fit them to everything! Whether your lump falls into the "OK with an R380" category is hard to say, LR hung the R380 behind the 4.0 V8 and the TD5 but not the 4.6, I run two 4.6+R380 combos and (touch wood) no issues yet.
