  1. Turbo heat shield - Defender 200Tdi

    Run both of my 200 tdi's without them - one for the last 18 years -no problems
  2. To scrap or not to scrap

    Couldn't agree more with Snagger, I have just rebuilt my son's 110 300 on a galv chassis and over the past 3 years have done the same with my 90 200 and 110 200. It took many weeks on each but the amount of corrosion I had to deal with in all three was considerable. There doesn't seem any point to me in not doing the complete strip, the results are well worth the effort. All three onto Richards chassis.
  3. Cable Clips

    what are these called please and where are they available ? They hold the wiring in place on the bulkhead on the 200tdi and 300 tai Defender
  4. 110 300 tdi chassis

    Well on with putting Richards chassis onto my sons 1997 110 and thought you may like to see what it was like under the cross member !! I have rechassised both my older 200 tdi's but they weren't tis bad at that point. New chassis painted and ready for engine etc
  5. 300 tdi electrics

    delayed reply as it hasn't happened for three days, as soon as I ordered relays then all seemed fine so not yet installed. Steve - the fuel gauge was going to full as soon as ignition on - I also noticed that with ignition off the fuel gauge went to full when the sidelights were turned on. The fault may have disappeared when I removed and replaced the relays to check the part numbers so I hope it was just a poor connection but don't begin to understand why it caused those symptoms - will put in new relays and hope that is the end of problem. Thanks for your help
  6. 300 tdi electrics

    Thanks Part no seems to be AMR 2548 - YWB 10027 - there are two on my 110 plus the wiper relay and the flasher relay
  7. 300 tdi electrics

    Thanks for response, will get one ordered, assume this is part PRC 8230 ? Don't understand why this would cause the fuel gauge to show full when the tank is almost empty ?
  8. 300 tdi electrics

    Came to start 1997 110 this morning and when key turned appeared dead except oil and charge lights came on but no turn over of engine, strangely the fuel gauge went off the scale although the tank is virtually empty, temp gauge stayed at zero. Horn also dead but clock still running. Went back after few minutes and started up and ran perfectly. Just tried again and dead as before. Any ideas please where to start ?
  9. intermittent clutch after replacement

    Sounds like hydraulics to me
  10. Valve cap / cup ?

    Yes they are certainly there on both my Defender 200 tdi's, I lost one and had to order more; part no. LJC100270
  11. Suspect lift pump.

    I've had that happen and caused by fuel lines becoming loose at connections to the tank
  12. New noise from the cab

    Is the noise there when you are moving or only when stationary after a run ? If the latter then does it go when you depress the clutch ?
  13. Uneven slow running. 2.5 D

    Fuel Lift Pump ?
  14. normal oil leak?

    Yes, in my case, both my Defenders do this when the flange is pulled off.
  15. 200 Tdi Fuel Injector

    Argeed, but use proper penetrating oil e.g. Penal not WD40 and leave overnight and I have never had a problem.
