    Range Rover classic carb fuel pump

    Odd , I thought the fuel pumps were in the tank, my 94 and earlier Classic were both in the tank?

    Dynamic timing

    Not sure how you do it on a v8, but why not check TDC and put the plate right/ confirm first?

    Please explain the issue, is it a problem with the seat belt or the auto lock?

    P38 V8 Coil Pack

    Why not simply connect a temporary fly lead from the pack to any earth? You could have done that in less time than to ask the question!

    Have you ever seen this before?

    At LR Legends, Bicester, this year Bishop were showing an open back RRC in red they had fully restored. Originally resident in France. Did not have a soft top at the show but perhaps that is it, prepared for the UK. Cannot remember whose it was .Checked on Bishops website, theirs is brown, there is a picture of it. The red RRC was restored from bottom up, but it was in as new condition, came from Far East I think.

    Difference between RRC and P38 Air Springs?

    I would be interested in this as well As I have a set of air springs off a classic and my son has a p38 that need some!

    3.9 efi lpg auto 92'

    I had the same sort of issue, changed amp etc, then problem seemed to be petrol pump. After much investigation turned out to be ignition coil, partially but not totally failing!
  9. Regarding the initial problem, I would suspect faulty distributor, advance retard or even the coil or ignition amplifier

    1992 Range Rover Classic 3.9EFi

    I have 94rrc, there is only one cat box it is underneath the car. You must have 2 one on each down pipe? I wonder why. Where are your lambda sensors mine are at the bottom of the down pipes before they join into one? Suprised your cats are up by engine, must cause extreme heat problems under the bonnet, also we always warned if travelling over grasslands to be careful cats would catch fields etc alight. Yours shouldn’t!

    What was actually glowing? Could the smell have been grease, oil etc from the repairs? The cat box is further down, surely, so only exhaust manifold and pipes nearby?

    Basic Start & Charge Wiring

    Starter motor shot? Has it got a proper earth?

    200tdi oil pressure.

    The only time I had this (and of course we panic don’t we!) it just needed a new oil switch. If it on all the time I do not think it would be a disconnected wire, as I didn’t think it would come on at all.

    RRC 3.5 efi v8 won't run

    Had something like this last year, on my RRC 94, 3.9. Driving along, then stopped at road works. Engine ticking over roughly, but no response to throttle. It eventually gave up. Towed to my garage, they initially thought fuel starvation, but it turned out to be the distributor, advance retard. LR price £1400! They sourced a ‘chinese’ one, they take it to bits, check all joints etc, then refit, £150! other issue a couple of years back, was suddenly dying whilst driving normally, would then fire, and run roughly. initially changed ign amp as quite old, probably original, then again fuel pump, but that turned out to be more connector issues. Possible petrol issue , vaporising, so tried better quality, highe octane with lass ethanol. Thought of leads, cap etc, but it turned out to be much more simple, the coil!

    RRC front spoiler

    My 94 rrc Vogue se has a front spoiler with 3 slots. However the spotlights are inboard by about 34cms of slots on left and right hand side with 3 much longer slots between the spot.ignts
