  1. Earlier 53mm one. In fact there’s a complete transfer box, I saved one good spare of each component. ill dig it out later
  2. This may help someone in the future; I took a look at this last night and realised that when the heated screen was on, the dash warning light for the hazards came on as well, and when hazards were on, the heated screen warning light also came on. Looking at the wiring diagram, the hazard warning light pin and the heated screen warning light pin are next to each other on one of the multi connectors to the dash panel (Td5); the fault turned out to be a badly done crimp from the factory which had been flattened where it crimps the insulation which had caused the terminal to gradually wear a tiny hole through the plastic multi plug connector causing an occasional short between the two warning lights.
  3. I stripped a few more down a few months ago and think I’ve got an earlier one in good condition, not a lot of use to me for my Puma (I dread to think what that one is like!) I may part with it. I wondered the same thing regarding reconditioning!
  4. Adam, I stripped down four lt230s over Christmas. Two of them were like yours with spun bearings which just dropped off but they should be a press fit. The other two I had to pull the bearings off but it had been thrashed at some point and the planetary gear bronze washers had disintegrated and the gears worn themselves into the centre diff. they seem to tolerate a lot of abuse and wear. I kept putting off building one good one as I wasn’t happy with the wear. I eventually got lucky and scrapped a 300tdi disco which had been fitted with what must’ve been a new lt230 late in its life as was late td5 spec with bigger centre diff bearings and absolutely no wear whatsoever. As disco 2s are dropping like flies now perhaps look to get an lt230 from one which as been used only on the road. I retained the td5 “Q” 1.2 gear set, had my casing sleeved by Ashcroft, rebuilt the centre diff to correct tolerances with Ashcroft centre, Syncro gearboxes hardened intermediate shaft, fitted all new Timken bearings throughout (I did get NTN initially but they were slightly out of tolerance and the input gear would not shim correctly) It’s now a really nice quiet box with almost no driveline slop (I rebuilt and reset the diffs and fitted an Ashcroft ATB to the rear diff at the same time)
  5. Strange one, my hazard lights / flasher relay stops working as soon as the rear heated screen is turned on. Turn the screen off and the hazards start working again. It doesn’t happen when either left or right indicators are turned on, just the hazards. Any ideas? I’m stumped as to why! Only thing I can think of is I have LED lights all round and the replacement aftermarket LED flasher relay.
  6. Not if you get the Puma ones galvanised they aren’t
  7. Obviously. But if you are replacing them the Puma ones are the best
  8. There are actually three versions, the original three part version, the later one piece welded version, and the very late Td5 / Puma one piece version. These last version are all one piece pressed construction, eliminating the visible weld beads and reducing the potential rot spots.
  9. Somewhere I have some M6 plusnuts I bought back from Australia, can’t seem to get them in the Uk. I can try and dig them out. They were bought as for a particular application M6 rivnuts were too small for the hole.
  10. Rbc100111 fit fine on defender front.
  11. Glass is same dimensions 1958-2002
  12. You need to find a gauge out of an old 300tdi defender, or get an adaptor to reuse your original sender with the 300tdi engine (if there is such a thing)
  13. AMR3321 BLACK TOP ONLY WORKS WITH 300TDI DEFENDER GAUGE 1994-1998. AMR3321 BLACK TOP WONT WORK WITH “ORIGINAL DEFENDER GAUGE” FROM A 19J AMR1425 GREEN TOP WONT WORK WITH ANY DEFENDER GAUGE FROM ANY YEAR UNLESS TD5 DASH FITTED.
  14. I have had these seals swell up on pattern calipers before, they blocked up the gallery completely leading to the brakes only operating on one side of the caliper.
  15. You need 300tdi gauge. 300tdi sender doesn’t read correctly with Td gauge. It doesn’t even read correctly with 200tdi gauge.
