  1. Thanks for those replies, will get a lever behind those bushes and see what moves.
  2. Hello, Having engine swapped my 110 to Td5 power, I've noticed some wandering when accelerating and braking - I'm wondering if the increased power is showing this up, rather than it being a new issue. Essentially, when accelerating the 110 slews one way, and then when I let off it slews the other. It's not severe, but it's noticeable. I'm assuming I need to be looking at the rear suspension, but some guidance on where to focus my efforts would be great. Thanks!
  3. Hello, I'm looking for information on the thread size of the high pressure outlet on the TD5 pump. I'm converting my 200tdi 110 to TD5 power, the engine is out of a Discovery. I've bought Defender power steering pipes and it turns out the thread size on the pumps are different on Discovery and Defender. Does anyone know what the thread sizes are so I can try and find an adaptor? Or, does anyone have a scrap Defender pump which they'd be willing to unscrew the outlet from? It has a restriction in it and can be unscrewed from the Discovery pump so I assume it can also be removed f
  4. Looking forward to the next video George - I was just starting to wonder when we'd see the next one 😀
  5. I don't have any photos to hand but can grab one for you later on. Buy yes it's ultimately just a short piece between downpipe and centre pipe, with a 200tdi flange on one end (cut from the old centre section) and a TD5 flange on the other (cut from the TD5 downpipe). Noise wise - the 110 had a straight through mid pipe and a back box and has the same in TD5 form (I'd like the center silencer - but there's a water tank between the chassis rails which gets in the way of the box). I think the TD5 exhaust has a slightly throatier sound but can't comment on how it would be in standard form. I
  6. I've fitted a TD5 exhaust for precisely this reason. Downpipe remains 200tdi, then a short connection piece, then TD5 centre and back boxes. You'll have to make/modify some of the exhaust hangers but nothing too difficult.
  7. Ok - so further investigations suggest that I had a raft of issues. The main ones being one of the voltmeters reading incorrectly as mentioned above, and another issue of a rather (very) loose alternator belt! Re-tensioning the belt has given me increased charging, with 14.2-14.3 across both batteries (when checked with a multimeter on the terminals). So success there! I now need to check over all of the dash and chassis earths as I believe these may be causing a number of issues I'm experiencing, namely: incorrectly reading aftermarket voltmeter (and the sta
  8. Thanks for the replies. I'll try this and see how I get on. If the battery stays charged then I'm guessing it would prove that the alternator can't deal with 2 batteries?
  9. Thanks for all of your replies so far. I've done some more digging and it seems that the voltmeter I have for the main battery is under reading by about 0.5v, having checked with a multimeter both batteries are getting approx the same voltage from the alternator, sorry! That'll teach me not to double check the guages with a proper meter! It does seem that the alternator is struggling a little though - is a 45A alternator powerful enough to charge 2 batteries? The 110 is seeing more short distance use (15-30min drives) than it has before and I'm wondering if it might be that the
  10. Both the isolator and the split charge show a similar voltage difference which I think rules out a fault in these. Also when the alternator is just charging the main battery (i.e. no split charge and batteries not linked through the isolator) the voltage still remains at 13.6ish volts. Surely this rules out the wiring?
  11. Hi all, I've got a strange issue on the 110, but as it's battery/electrics related it likely crosses all models. I've got 2 batteries fitted, linked by negative terminals to a chassis earth. Positive terminals are linked by either a voltage sensing split charge relay (currently disconnected to rule it out) or by a large isolator switch. The main starter battery is currently only showing about 13.6v when the engine is running, it's not charging properly as a result and the 200tdi struggles to start unless jumped off the leisure battery using the isolator switch. I suspected
  12. Thanks all, I'm hoping that a couple of diesel specialists will be able to help me out. Otherwise I'll be buying a new set of leak off pipes!
  13. Hi all, I've managed to snap the barbed hose fitting off the banjo fitting on one of the injectors on my 200tdi. Numpty. I know that these banjos take a 6mm bolt and the barb fits a 3.2mm or 1/8 ID pipe. But I can't find such a thing for sale anywhere and want to avoid replacing the whole spill rail if possible. Can anyone help with a source for a replacement banjo union? Cheers!
  14. I also bought a replacement viscous unit (the original had seized to the water pump and had to be cut off) and found that it was locked all of the time. I've never managed to get the 200tdi hot enough to lock up the new unit. On a previous TD5 I found (accidentally) that leaving a radiator muff in place then driving along the motorway soon locked up the fan... Maybe try a covering the radiator and going for a drive? Keep an eye on temperatures obviously!
