  1. Just trying to replace the head gasket on my td5 90. Lined up and locked the cam just can't find the access hold to lock the crank. Is it through the crank sensor? cheers paul
  2. My 110 currently is playing silly devils with its lights. Mi currently have no rear indicator, brake light, or side light on the ns. I have swapped the fittings over from the OS and the fittings are ok, fuses are fine. Anyone cleverer than me with ideas from here? Thanks Paul
  3. Thanks for all your input guys. I managed to track down the problem which turned out to be the fuel rail pressure sensor wiring which wasnt seating correctly on the sensor. Was fun and games tracking the problem down least its sorted and my fathers a happy man
  4. I've put my snap on scanner on it and it shows nothing. It was a sudden loss of power and the car just coasted to a stop.
  5. Help! My fathers freelander has just conked out on the a14 and is being recovered. Car just lost power and coasted to a stop and wnt restart. Fuel is getting through to the engine bay and it isn't throughing any fault codes. Would the high pressure pump just fail with no warning? The car has only covered 70k and is religiously serviced. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Roll cage

    we have a whitbread cage and are well impressed for our truckcab 90, went for the extra bracing and is a really good cage! cant recomend them enough really useful and great value for money!
  7. Perfect. Thanks very much I will get on and order some tomorrow.
  8. Does anyone happen to know a company that sells plates that allow you to cut the bottom corners off a 90 tub to allow 35inch tyres to be fitted. Thanks Paul
  9. Tomorrow I am installing a new rear loom on a project 90. Is there a specific point where all the earth`s for the lights should be led back to? Where are they earthed as standard? The current landy doesnt have any lights or loom at present hence my stupid question. Many thanks Paul
  10. Dear All. I currently own a almost finished defender project (200tdi). The only thing that is letting is down is the wiring. It has been emersed in salt water, hacked about and is currently in a very very poor state. The master plan is to build a new loom. As this is a bit of a trailer queen i only need to be able to start and stop the engine, washers and wipers. I am reasonably practical but wiring is a black art to me. How would one go about desigining a loom from scratch? Is there anyone near Peterborough that could help for cash/ beer tokens? Another problem I have is that the truck is currently imobile on my drive. Is there anyway I can start the truck with a jump pack (turning the ignition on does nothing) directly to the starter? to get it on my trailer so I can transport her to my workshop. Any help apreciated. Thanks Paul
  11. As stated I am currently on the hunt for a new land rover. I currently have a 300tdi disco and am looking for something newer. I am considering a td5 90, What are they like to live with on a daily basis? I primarily need something to tow large boat trailers around the country, shunt heavy trailers around in fields and be able to take a reasonable amount of kit in the back Are the heaters any better than the older ones (I had a 200tdi 90 which had a very poor heater). Would i be able to get a half decent one for around 8k? Cheers for looking Paul
  12. Mike: That was extremely helpful, thanks! Shox dr: You are absolutly right but my loom has been hacked apart by a blind person so i dont have any faith in it at all. I have been doing some further thinking on the matter and is the following correct (im at work with out the aid of a wiring diagram so attempting from memory) for basic electrical items in the engine bay: Starter Needs a main positive from the battery, an earth wire, and a wire to conect to the ignition switch Glow plugs Direct positive feed off the battery, ignition feed, earth and conection to glow plugs Alternator Direct feed to live wire on starter?? (anything else?) Stop solinoid Connects to ignition but what else? Sorry if these are obvious questions but i hate car electrics
  13. This is currently an idea of mine to replace the messed up wiring currently in my truck. I have a 200tdi 90 which is only ever used for offroad days and does not have or need an MOT. Its main problem is that at some stage in its life it was completly submersed in salt water and as a result the electrics have a mind of their own. I want to build my own loom to incoporate the bare minimum of features ie engine start stop, washers, wipes and thats it. What is the best way to go about building your own loom? What conections do i need on the engine side ie what needs power? Is this even possible for the average person who is fairly handy? Any ideas on what a professional would charge? Any suggestions on places to buy bits? I idealy want to use a marine grade fuse holder just to make the system simple, fool proof and water tight! Any advice greatly apreciated. Many thanks Paul
  14. I am seriously thinking about buying a TD5 Disco. I have read the buyers guide on the forum but there are still several issues im unsure about; - I know that not all Disco`s come with a difflock. Can this be easily retro fitted to ones that dont? - I am going to look at a Disco commercial that has coil springs on the rear. As the truck will predominantly be used for towing heavy trailers can you buy "upgraded" stiffer springs to stop the back sinking? As a general aside what are they like as towing trucks? I will be using it to tow a 16ft ifor and a 25ft boat trailer most days. Whats the life like for gearbox`s and clutches if driven considerately? Cheers Paul
  15. Cheers guys thanks for the response. Farmerboi, i havent taken my prop off so should the yokes still be inline? If it makes any difference i was towing a 3ton trailer the day before the vibrations occoured and the landy was fine, next day the vibrations started with a vegenace A quick look underneath earlier revealed there was alot of grease splaid out of the UJ at the gearbox end of the rear prop. I will try the leaver technique tomorrow and report back. Is it likely to be all the UJ's are knackered or just one?
