    New Defender

    So. Are we any closer to actually knowing what the replacement is going to look like or is it the usual renders..... what's the bloody hold up?

    Design Oversight

    I've always found most jobs on my defender fairly easy (apart from the wiring) due to pretty well thought out utilitarian design that allows most things to be changed without having to take out a million things first. Today however I've found a doozy.. Went to swap out my upper steering column. Loosened all the brackets, removed column/ignition switch, went to slide column down through hole in bulkhead only to find it won't go. Why? The teardrop shaped hole in the bulkhead is partially covered by the lower dash. This means that the lug/stay near the top of the column won't fit through without removing dash first. At this moment in time I'm thinking the old one can just bloody stay there. I'm not taking the lower dash back out AGAIN after just getting my Raptor dash etc in place... Grrrrrr

    Those are very nice Doug. And not a fortune either. Wonder if they have any black ones left

    The head unit in my Touran (RNS510) has a slot for an SD card meaning I can download all my MP3 music to its memory. However my iMac doesn't have an SD slot. I am aware that you can get SD-USB adapters. Will I be able to download the music from my iMac to an SD card via one of these adapters? I know sometimes adapters can totally horlicks sound/video quality....

    Late update on this. Spendrey sent me an SD card that he downloaded music onto. My Hu plays it no problem! I forgot to ask him if he used windows pc or a Mac like I have so I still don't know where the problem lies exactly. All I know is it rules out the hu itself..

    One problem at a time john... Just wanna know the best way to go about fitting a gearbox to the 351 first of all.

    As title. Would it fit into a defender?

    No suggestions for gearbox if he wanted to stay with a manual? I know the motor would turn any LR gearbox to a box of metal filings. I also think that the Tremec TKO range of gearboxes aren't 4x4 compatible. If that is correct what would the options be?

    I'd still like to hear from some of the auto fans on here if this is a good deal? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-v8-4-6-Torqueflite-727-autobox-/272751533263?hash=item3f81421ccf:g:wSUAAOSw-89ZUBjA

    Ford 460 V8

    Yes it's A&A transmission that's looking into what adapter and flex plate he needs. Just for the fullness of options, what manual gearbox would be best placed to handle the torque and be able to mate up with the LT230?

    Ford 460 V8

    Well? What about that 727 I linked to? Is that a reasonable price? I'm not up to speed on autos..
  16. need4speed

    Ford 460 V8

    Ok so just had an email back from a US transmission place that the 727 won't mate with the 351 without an adapter and special flex plate.
  17. need4speed

    Ford 460 V8

    So with the LT230 he will be sorted. Just need to find out what bellhousing he needs. What about this... thoughts? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-v8-4-6-Torqueflite-727-autobox-/272751533263?hash=item3f81421ccf:g:wSUAAOSw-89ZUBjA

    No worries. On the rangey auto with the torqueflite box, was that mated to the LT230 or was it the Borg Warner? Edit: I see there is a 727 from RR for sale on fleabay just now

    Ford 460 V8

    RV8 lighter but we reckon the 383 is making 400-450hp. With major torque of course. So a 727torqueflite. LT230. Is there a specific bellhousing required?

    But he loves that engine! So do I if I'm honest. Stroked to 383

    Loving that pic of the old Renault! Actually I've made a mistake. It's not a 460, it's a 351W. Also it's not mine. I've still to finish off my 4.6. My dad is building a 110 and has a 351 lying around. What's causing the biggest questions is drive train. He would prefer an auto but no idea what one and how to mate it to transfer box...

    Haven't looked at this for a little while. I was getting a little disheartened if I'm honest. Then the washing machine threw a bearing and the fridge/freezer decided it didn't feel like freezing anymore - all in the same day.

    Right. I'm starting to get really p!ssed off now. I purchased an mp3 file from Amazon as advised. However in order to see this download I had to download the Amazon music player. So I do that. While I'm able to play and hear the song, i seem to be unable to drag this file into my SD card. Why the Fck can't I just transfer the iTunes files that I have legitimately purchased onto any damned memory card I choose? I bought it ffs.... Is it going to be easier to buy some file converter in order to convert my iTunes files? Beginning to think I splashed out on this expensive head unit for fxk all. Grrrrrrrrrrr.

    Haven't tried an MP3 as yet. Going to do that later. For all of that though, as was mentioned before, you would think that the head unit would at least see the SD card even though it's not able to play anything. It doesn't even recognise that there is an SD card in the slot.. I will download an MP3 file onto the SD card and see what happens. Dave could you point me in the direction of one of these apps that I may need to convert file formats? Sorry, I'm a bit of a noob with these things. What happened to cassettes.........
