    Transfer box - Castrol Syntrans or Syntrax?

    Castrol has a nifty oil finder, here: https://applications.castrol.com/oilselector/en_gb/c/recommendation?vehicleType=cars&manufacturer=land-rover&model=defender-l316-(1990-2016)&modelType=defender-110-2-5-(1990-1995) You can find the other oils for your truck in the right hand column.

    Yep, a good chap, surprised to have not seen his videos mentioned on here before now.

    Brake Troubleshooting - looking for help

    If you find it improves by holding the engine revs a bit higher, either by engine braking or left foot braking, then it will be your vacuum source, or a leak. Doesn't sound too serious a problem though

    Removal side waffle holders

    Couple of this sort of thing inside then, riveted to hold in place: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Land-Rover-Series-Defender-Seat-Belt-Mounting-Plates-7-16-Fitting-Nuts-Bolts-/362167785263 Not sure they need to be blind, if you are putting bolts in, they should effectively be sealed.

    Thin spongy foam on many body panels

    The superseding part number: https://www.brit-car.co.uk/product.php/428831/5497/seal_1_6m_front_floor_panels___defender Genuine stuff is only a pound or so more than Britpart, I know which I would buy.

    @DC_, petrol or diesel? At idle or more than idle?

    Spare wheel carrier play in joints

    I'd look at nylon washers, easy to buy on ebay in various sizes, excellent wear resistance and do not squash easily. Plus you can 'machine' them to fit really easily!

    Removal side waffle holders

    Could you not just put the bolts right through the soundproofing and put and use a spreader plate on the ply? Lockable stuff can be worked out then....

    Radio wiring issue

    OK, still, the theory can hold, if you ignore the noise, isolate and test.
  11. That climbs amazingly well considering lack of application of right foot, and the loose sandy surface -maybe there is something to this weight thing

    Radio wiring issue

    Have you tried wiring the radio straight to the battery, permanent and ignition live at same time? My thoughts are that the LEDs switching on are causing a load of electrical noise on the ignition live, which is interfering with the radio. Perhaps the radio is getting on a bit, and it is becoming more sensitive to this sort of thing. I don't think there's anything wrong with the wiring to the LEDs, though it is possible that the LED units are going south, creating more noise, drawing more current than they should etc... You could try running these straight from the battery as well.... Isolate and test.

    Rebuild 110 as a 90 Softtop

    Thought B was breaker only? i.e. never to go back on road again.

    New Tata SUV based on Disco Sport

    What you can see of it, is rather boring.
