    Engine Oil leak(s) - where to start (300tdi)

    The originals were fibre type which I always found split, the replacement type now I think are metal composite? It’s a few years since I’ve had a 300tdi now.

    Engine Oil leak(s) - where to start (300tdi)

    Every 300tdi I have owned (over 20 of them over the years) has come to me with the original type intake / exhaust gasket split as mentioned above. They always split on the intake part causing the oily mess. I change the intake gasket, rocker gasket, leak off pipes and breather pipe on each 300tdi I have as a matter of course. Also check the injector pipes are tight as often found a loose one weeping very slightly. Also the only way to get a truly leak free cyclonic breather is to fit an Allisport one - I’ve changed o rings and tried additional sealer on them plenty of times in the past but the plastic always distorts when bolted up and they start leaking again. Only since I have fitted an Allisport breather a year or two ago has my 300tdi top end been absolutely leak free.

    Clutch Info help !

    Technically that is wrong - it will only fit td5s and pumas that came without the spring fitted. Pre 300tdi used a different pedal box without the cutout for the springs.

    Clutch Info help !

    I had an 04 td5 that didn’t have it, yet a 56 td5 and 08 Puma it had returned. But all 300tdis had it as standard.

    Land rover key blanks

    They are available aftermarket - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/REPLACEMENT-NEW-LAND-ROVER-DEFENDER-TRANSPONDER-KEY-BLADE-LF10-1-1/142498314459?epid=1588467542&hash=item212d8fb8db:g:kK0AAOSwu1xZzBeR

    Vent seals

    If anyone is replacing their vent flap foams, avoid Genuine Land Rover ones! I fitted a new pair to td5 3 months ago, they were a terrible fit and the adhesive between the foam and the adhesive strip failed on both of them. I’vejust bought and fitted a set from Britpart and amazingly they fit the vent flaps perfectly and appear to be far better than the genuine items.

    Larger transfer box sump

    Roamerdrive have obviously not seen the underside of a Tdci then!

    Larger transfer box sump

    They were changed to flanged bolts for above reason.

    Larger transfer box sump

    BTW the LT230 should have flanged bolts not bolts with washers - the bolts are designed to seal against the face to prevent oil weeps

    Larger transfer box sump

    Mine used to get really hot in the summer on motorway after an hour or two - Allisported 300tdi with disco transfer box on a 90, the above sump did make a difference to the heat coming through the handbrake gaiter - I drove non stop to Scotland from Taunton last summer prior to fitting it and it was like a hair dryer on my leg I've got a TDCi now and the cooler doesn't fit but it doesn't seem to get as hot for some reason

    Clunky gearbox

    If it’s a 90, fit a pair of 300tdi rear halfshafts - that will probably cure half the clunk. The other half is likely to be the adaptor shaft as above. I have the Ashcroft adaptor kit but haven’t ever got round to fitting it to my TDCI yet!

    Floppy Gearshift, Getting Into Gear Hit and Miss

    The transfer box will most probably be an easy fix you can do yourself, they are basic and easy to work on.

    Floppy Gearshift, Getting Into Gear Hit and Miss

    Jim, it’s not a stop on the shaft, it’s the adaptor I mentioned earlier which has been used to convert a disco short shift rail into a defender long shift rail. Not really a problem but one more part to potentially come loose! (My puma suffered the same problem, completely different gearbox but shift yoke came undone like yours)

    Floppy Gearshift, Getting Into Gear Hit and Miss

    Are Ashcroft now supplying discovery r380s with their shift rail adaptor rather than proper defender r380 boxes?

    Sheilder bulkheads

    I bought four genuine td5 bulkheads from the last batch land rover made in early 2016, for around the same price. Despite some ridicule at spending £4000 on them they have proved a good investment as I have sold two of them recently for £2000 each!
