  1. 1998 300tdi auto

    Must be an EDC model since it has fault codes.
  2. 300tdi turbo upgrade.

    Is the core a standard replacement or a hybrid ?
  3. TD5 Top Radiator Hose

    No moving parts so should be ok.
  4. Typical LR QC or lack there of.
  5. Are you talking about the square ones or round ones for the bolts ?, on know the rear square pads near the fuel tank were adjustable on an RRC but not on the D1 and mine dont reach the body anymore.
  6. VTDi Turbo on 300 TDi

    What model turbo is it ?, most of the VNT's from VW or BMW need to have the actuator replaced with one that works on pressure and not vacuum.
  7. 300TDi cylinder head supplier

    Get the head hardness/ crack tested and if it passes then skimmed and valve heights set.
  8. Vacancy SE Africa trip May/June 2017

    If i had the cash, did it in 93/94 in a DAF truck but would love to do it in a landy.
  9. Mercedes om606 engine

    92 disco would have been an LT77 from the factory not R380.
  10. Disco 1 front Propshaft Phasing

    Same in AUS, i swapped mine to a uni shaft after the 3rd coupling shredded.
  11. DIY Fridge Drop Slide

    I thought that you had a template for laser cutting but your design looks a lot simpler than i expected, looking good.
  12. DIY Fridge Drop Slide

    How will you be cutting the steel, looks like some laser cutting is required.
  13. Disco 1 front Propshaft Phasing

    A double cardan is only required for over 3" lifts, overkill for 2".
  14. Fiberglass camper project

    They come up on local gumtree regularly and go for not much coin, mostly ex ambo bodies off a ford F150/250 cab chassis so might fit a 130 ok.
  15. CV's One Shot - Grease or oil ??

    My 98 D1 has a fill hole so i just added 150ml of 90 diff oil to what was left of the one-shot grease, no leaks after 10years.
  16. DIY Fridge Drop Slide

    I built a simple frame from alloy tube and made the slide from the same tube with gal steel rods for the fridge to sit on, i used a couple of 125kg rated ball bearing lockable slides so that once is slides out it locks in position as well as locking when closed. Have since added carpeted plywood to the top and yet to add a couple of drawers in the right hand side. The tube and fitting are from the hard ware and just push together, quite sturdy but i added rivets to help hold it together.
  17. Halifax

    What , my ancestral home is full of landy murderer's , wont be going there in a hurry .
  18. TD5 Cylinder Head Advice? its off!!

    You only need to re-cut valve seats if you need to skim a lot off the head, there are minimum stand down heights for the valves.
  19. New Def Neddy

    Tata should move the tooling to India and start production for 2nd and 3rth world countries.
  20. Pity, the OME shocks used to be made in Adelaide by Monroe for ARB.
  21. TD5 Cylinder Head Advice? its off!!

    Get it crack and hardness tested and if it passes go from there, plenty of people get away with a light skim and reusing the head. I did this to my tdi head and all good after nearly 20k.
  22. I went to a property here 18 months ago where the owner bought up all the spares that the Aus Army were offloading when they went to Land rovers for their vehicles, he has crate upon crate of new diffs, gearboxes and transfers, engines all wrapped up in greased paper and crated in transport ready crates. He also had at least 12 complete vehicles in various states of neglect and running.
  23. New Vehicle, VW Amorok

    Just the look, the lines are horrible. Ford got it right and Mazda went the opposite way.
  24. New Vehicle, VW Amorok

    Maybe if you are blind, bloody ugly pos they are.
  25. New Vehicle, VW Amorok

    Hopefully the V6 Rok have a bigger oil cooler for the auto, been out on a few night time rock crawling trips and we constantly had to stop for the 2 Amarok's in our group while the auto cooled down. They do look like a good unit.
