  1. Hello all I’ve just been replacing the bearings in an R reg discovery 300tdi. I’ve had to replace the stub axle and bearing carrier as they where also trashed. The vehicle is field run about so the owner didn’t want to buy any parts and had me stripping parts from an old 10 spline axle. So I have built up the 10 spline stub axle and bearing carrier onto the discovery with all the bearings and seals from the 10 spline. The length looks good as the halfshaft is protruding by approximately 10mm when pulled out and pushes in as far as the circlip. However I now can’t get the drive flange to fit but I’m not sure where the issue is, Mainly because I’m at work now and haven’t got the car to look at. Does anyone know what part I may need or is it a case of I need a discovery stub axle?
  2. Thanks for the offer mark but I’ve started buying the parts needed to rebuild mine. Cheers
  3. Cheers guys, the beating seats look pretty good, I can vaguely remember seeing a company selling fully built main shafts with everything assembled on it already a while ago but can’t for the life of me find it again, can anyone point me in the right direction? J
  4. To be honest even a knackered one would probably be better than mine, both shafts are totally ruined along with the majority of the gears so not really a candidate for repair whereas most second hand boxes will probably just require bearings and maybe 1-2 other bits and pieces (hopefully) 😂😂
  5. Hello, I’ve had a post in the wanted Section for ages and had no luck, plus tried loads of various internet searches but no luck! Im looking for a second hand lt76 for a series 3, I know you can buy recon boxes but I can’t stretch to the £7-800 necessary. if anyone knows of any possible sources in the north east or Cumbria then that would be great! Cheers, Jamie
  6. Ohh happy days 😂😂 i should learn to never trust the word or work of someone selling “an unfinished project” thanks jamie
  7. That’s what I really hope. Heres a picture of the clutch anyway to see what you lads think Sorry it’s not great but it’s just a generic one from then I pulled the engine out a while ago
  8. I guys as some of you may have seen I have a series 2a that I'm trying to fix up. the latest issue is that the clutch pedal doesn't return when pressed down and has to be pulled back up, there is no pressure on the pedal on the way up or down, and the system has been bled. I'm starting to think that possibly the wrong clutch has been fitted and the clutch fork isn't against the clutch plate which could cause these symptoms? the engine is 2.25 diesel from a series 3, do series 3 and series 2 have different clutches? thanks jamie
  9. Hi Lofi, that would be great if you could do that? Cheers
  10. Hi folks I’m refitting the steering system to my series 3 rebuild and was wandering if people have any clues on how to ensure everything is fitted straight ahead? Such as where should the bottom and top arm on the steering relay point when in the straight ahead position? Amd any other tips are appreciated. Jamie
  11. Thanks guys, I totally forgot turners even existed! Is there anything else you would be doing once it’s on bits or just wait and see depending on what I find? Jamie
  12. Hi guys I’ve got my 90 off the road for some repairs to get it through an mot buts going to be off for about a year so I’m planning on doing some bigger jobs while I’m on. The engine is good but it’s just got a general air of old age so I’m planning on giving it some tlc without going to a full rebuild, I’m thinking new big end shells, piston ring and a head gasket plus the usual seals etc. Can anyone recommend good suppliers of bearings or should I just go for genuine items seeing as they’re known to last? Jamie
  13. That’s a definite possibility, at least it’s easy enough to drop the tank and then I can Tip it upside down and make sure it’s empty
  14. The fuel filler isn’t attached as the pipe has a hole in, the inlet on the tank is taped over so that should t be leaking, it’s only been filled once from the same station that all of our cars are filled from. Mom going to drop the tank this weekend and have a good look at it. Cheers
  15. Hi guys I’ve got a 2a that I’m putting back on the road but the fuel system is full of water again. Prior to filling up with fuel there was water in the bottom of the tank, I just assumed it was from sitting for a while, so I removed the bung and drained the tank of about 3 litres of water and a tiny bit of diesel, I put 10 litres of diesel in and bled the engine and had it running. I had to remove the engine to sort a clutch issue but On bleeding the system I found everything full of water again. Firstly is there a proper procedure to ensure the tank is fully drained secondly are there baffles in these tanks? Thanks Jamie
