  1. That's ok no problem Ive looked again at the wiring diagrams, and I'm going to try and simulate an engine running signal by enabling the Main Relay-something I hadn't tried before. If this dosent work, I'll use the unused Heated Front screen relay and just connect it to my original timer module
  2. I found that information whilst reading the HRW operation description from the Disco2 Electrical Library-It states the HRW will only operate with the engine running because of the high current draw and that the BCU looks for a signal from the Cluster via the Comms Bus that the engine is running. Ive assembled a matching BCU,FuseBox and Cluster together to test on the bench and so far this is the only thing that Ive been unable to make work. Ive tried using the oil pressure lamp and Alternator charge lamp inputs without any luck to simulate the engine running signal
  3. Thanks for the info guys Ive decided to go the whole hog and transplant the D2 BCU and Fusebox... Ive assembled everything on the bench and made everything work except the Heated Rear Window which it looks like the BCU is looking for an Engine Running Signal from the Cluster. Ive tried simulating oil pressure and an Alternator output without any success. What does the Cluster use as an Engine Running signal? Cheers Nick
  4. Thanks for the replies-I looked at the D1 14CUX diagram for the version without the combined main/fuel pump relay module, and i think I can safely say it switches them to ground.....Im guessing Fridge that this is why relays both contain Flyback diodes? Cheers Nick
  5. Hi all, Im currently transplanting a Disco 2 Underbonnet fusebox into my '93 3.9 Disco 1 in an effort to neaten up the wiring with its associated mass of relays scattered inside the car. Ive studied the 14CUX wiring diagram, but could someone here confirm that the ECU supplies grounds on pin 12 for the Main Relay and Pin 16 for the Fuel pump relay to enable operation. cheers Nick
  6. I finally was able to separate the 2 halves😀 It seems I needed to 'pry' a different way to the way I was doing it before to get the flap to sit in the V part of the housing!
  7. Hi there, I'm currently working on my '93 Disco 1 to replace a leaking heater matrix. On the heater housing, I'm having a lot of trouble separating the 2 halves to get the old Matrix out. I've removed all the clips, drilled out the rivits and the housing is at the point where both halves are loose, but the intake flap is preventing the halves from separating. Apparently the flap needs to be fully closed so it fits through a V shaped slot in the housing, but even when fully closed, mine will not fit through this slot. Can anyone give me any ideas on where I might be going wrong Cheers

    S11A chassis alignment

    De Ranged, ive had similar differences in width with the S3 109 chassis that im working on. And alignment left to right is just as bad. I've now used a piece of solid round bar machined down to the same dimension as the front chassis bushes, pressed in place of the front chassis bushes to keep the 2 rails in some sort of parallel. The 2 rails even vary in width quite a fair bit from front to rear!

    S11A chassis alignment

    Thats exactly the same problem i've found also in my measurements. Also the axle centreline measurements differ significantly between the left and right chassis rails. Ive found this is due to the rear spring, front outrigger being incorrectly positioned on the chassis and, on the front, the RHS front spring mount has also been not positioned correctly. All the welds look original so can only assume it came from the factory this way!

    S11A chassis alignment

    Im definitely with Bill on this one--the tolerances for Landrover chassis are terrible. Im currently widening a Series 3 109 chassis to accommodate Nissan leaf sprung axles and have found none of dimensions listed from the factory are even close to spec-some varying by nearly 25mm!

    banana chassis

    What about the front tub mounts? Do the bolt holes line up there?

    A Change to the front end

    I've run into this same problem as well during my S3 109 build---although for different reasons. My full size Ford Falcon Radiator and twin electric fans wouldn't fit between the D2 PAS box and the radiator support panel. I moved my grill panel forward by 55mm and had a sheetmetal shop extend the rear of the bonnet. This gives you more room, but still retains that unique series look. Changing to a 2.6 Bulkhead would also goive you more room as well. Nick

    Steering Ram??

    I am also doing a power steering conversion using Fridge's method with a Disco 2 PAS box. One of the most difficult parts of the conversion i've found so far is trying to find a radiator that would fit. Having to raise the PAS box up so the Pitman arm clears the front axle on full compression makes it only possible to use a relativly small crossflow radiator. Also it needs to have the inlet on the top RH side--most radiators that i could find in wreckers here in OZ had inlets on the bottom on the RH side which is no good because of the PAS box placement. So far, the only radiator that i found that would fit was from a Volvo 850. It has one large 2 speed fan, and hopefully will have enough cooling capacity for our long hot 40deg summer days over here in stop start traffic. Nick

    Series power steering

    Does anyone know if the disco1 and defender steering shafts are the same length? I'm going down the same path as Fridge and using a Disco2 PAS box for my conversion. Can i just use a disco1 steering shaft with disco2 ujoint at PAS box end, or is Defender shaft longer? Also slightly off topic, Fridge, do those radiator support brackets in the picture, position your radiator slightly above the steering box? What size radiator did you end up having made for your conversion?

    Power steering q in a s109

    Thanks for that info. Being an ex MIL chassis, it already has longer spring hangers and extended bumpstops, and there is plenty of clearance on full compression with the top of the RHS spring when on full right hand lock. I'll start drilling! Cheers Nick
