    Clutch assist spring

    I have just fitted one and have to say the clutch in now as light as my wife’s Audi ( it was bloody heavy before) The instructions say on 5 minutes to fit - took me an hour with lots of swearing, but well worth it. Toby

    Td5 refusing to start now...argh!

    A friends Defender TD5 got a problem with the immobiliser and would start run for a couple of seconds then stop. We didnt have access to a Nanaocom at the time and it ended up at the stealers. Apparently the engine will start and look for the code from the fob, if it doesnt find it in a couple of seconds it cuts the engine. Toby

    Scraping noise with cold Td5

    Try a stone or something else caught between the shield and the brake disc. Toby

    Diesel fuel filter for petrol?

    I used a series 3 diesel filter on my V8 ninety for 10 years and a similar filter on my petrol series 1 since 1987 with no problem. Toby

    Wide angle prop flange yoke

    The CV jointed shaft I had made used an SD1 joint at each end which didnt work very well. This was changed to UJ at the diff end and still didnt work!! As you have already pointed out the Toyota double hooks joint, this was welded in, balanced and worked brilliantly so much so I had a spare made which is under another V890 now. They are greasable (including the centre bearing) and, so far I believe, indestructable! The flange bolt PCD needed altering slightly to fit the Landrover PCD, but was easy to do. Toby

    Wide angle prop flange yoke

    As another alternative, HJ Chards in Feeder Road Bristol have always done me proud for propshafts and will supply most if not all bits you could need. They even made me a CV jointed prop for a V8 90 back in the early 1990's. http://www.prop-shaft.com/

    Air con dash panel

    Just waiting for the concrete to set so I can get into my workshop then I will tackle it. Toby

    Air con dash panel

    Thanks - I thought it was more challenging than that!! May be that is why it seems to be a source of so many squeaks! Toby

    Air con dash panel

    I need to get the air conditioning panel including the fan and evaporator out my 2002 TD5 so I can get to the lower heater box bolts and get it out to replace the bulkhead seal. The air conditioning has been degassed and the refrigerant pipes into the footwell have been disconnected, has any one got an idiots guide to removing the panel that goes full width of the lower dash at knee height? I am sure I have seen one somewhere but cannot find it now. Toby

    Not Usual TD5 Fuel Problem

    Complete new filter head didn’t fix it, but a new regulator did. Got another starting problem now but I am sure that is a power problem to the glow plugs! Toby

    rear brake pads question

    I have a 2002 (January) TD5 110 double cab and think LR were using production line stock up at the time. It has a 15P engine but as I found when doing the headgasket back in the summer it had plastic head dowels. Amoungst other things it has a Salisbury axle, but also has the front discs, larger calipers and larger pads on the back. So I think the change over was slightly earlier than the change to the short nose axle - so 2001 may be correct for the change over. Toby

    Defender 90 V8 Identification...

    Looks like a split case LT85 gearbox.

    TD5 speedo into 90 V8

    Ivan It used to have all sorts of issues when I first converted it to EFI and forked our for the NAS cables and robbing the transducer off my old RRC solved the issues. The fact you also think it may be running rich suggests it may have an issue which is masking the stalling. Connecting direct to the ecu as above seems a no brainer though and wish I knew that when I converted it! I would check everything else also though. I am away at the moment, but still have temp sensors (water and fuel), stepper motors, air flow meters etc. Since I have defected to TD5 power I am more than happy to let you have them all. They have been stored in an old shed (dry) since and they may need testing before you use them though. Toby

    Defender 90 V8 running rich i think?

    Ivan - check the air flow meter. Toby

    TD5 fuel economy
