  1. What does this plug into?

    Any idea what it is connected to on Japanese vehicles? Makes me wonder if one of the cars was a Japanese import.
  2. West Scotland road trip

    I took a trailer up to Skye from Ayr on Monday to collect a car from my brother. The traffic in either direction was fairly light and yes it was a wonderful drive and I thouroughly enjoyed the drive in my Disco. As said above take the time and enjoy the view there is lots to see. I took the road down through Glen Coe but the route through Oban is well worth taking as I did that a few years ago when my Wife, (Then girlfriend) wanted to see Loch Ness.
  3. What does this plug into?

    The wires are orange and Brown with a lilac stripe. Fuel temp would make sense as it is next to the heat exchanger
  4. What does this plug into?

    One is orange the other is brown with a violet or very light purple stripe.
  5. What does this plug into?

    I have posted this on the Discovery Forum but it equally applies to the Defender so hopefully someone can assist me. Can anyone tell me where the green plug at the very bottom of the picture goes. I have just transplanted the engine from my 1999 TD5 into my 2001 TD5 after I blew the gearbox. I suspect it is a sensor because the car keeps going into limp mode. The plug is on the offside and it is in the loom that connects with the vacuum sensor if that makes sense.
  6. My view is that it should follow the profile of the chassis. I.e. the chassis tilts up so should the cross member. As you look at your profile shot left hand side to the front.

  8. TD5 Gearbox bolts

    I have been taking engines out of my two Discos today basically to make one good one out of the two. On both cars the top off side gearbox bolt was a real pain to crack. The vehicle that I was scraping I ended up having to remove the gearbox to get at the bolt. On my good one I tried to lift the engine off the mounts and lower the gearbox to give me better access but that didn't work. I finally opted to put a short ratchet on it and use a fork lift with a strap round the ratched to shif the bold even that took a great effort to shift it. Once it cracked it was straight forward. Is there a knack or a spacial tool for this bolt? It seemed almost impossible to get off. I know it hasn't been off for at least 5 years (this is the length of time I have owned it)
  9. Well the bad news is that my latest discovery has blown it's gearbox. Last night I needed to be recovered back to the workshop to collect my Mini. further bad news was when I went under it in the pit to see if I could see anything I discovered terminal rot on the chassis. I remember trying to weld my other Disco up and called it quits when I was trying to find solid metal to weld to. The good news is I now have an engine block for my other Disco and many other little bits and peices that I need to get her up to scratch. Every cloud and all that.
  10. Interesting P38 Range Rover

    Sounds like an interesting project.
  11. Interesting P38 Range Rover

    I could only confirm a 80mm stroke. And that was consistently over 3 tries. Always pleased to help but unfortunately not the solution Filip was looking for. It was a very nice looking car though and if I was looking for a P38 certainly would be tempted.
  12. RANGE ROVER SV COUPÉ

    Both.
  13. RANGE ROVER SV COUPÉ

    Range Rover did a 2 door to test the market for a sports model in 1990. It took 2 years to sell. It is called the CSK. Very rare now and very desireable. I just need to restore mine!!
  14. Please talk me out of buying this L322

    I am looking forward to aquiring one later this year so go for it.
  15. Interesting P38 Range Rover

    PM me and we can talk about the details off the forum. I am always happy to look at a Range Rover always better when it is a but unusual.
