    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    You would last five minutes on any real trail before you were left behind.

    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    If you are doing any real off road travel, you will break things. It is nothing about reliability. You can't avoid damage. Whether or not you can get it going well enough to get out or need to walk for four days is important if they wanted to build a world leading vehicle for remote travel. That was the original point of the Land Rover. We do trips where we are days of driving from the nearest human regularly and have yet to leave a vehicle behind. The things they are building today are built in a way that will leave you stranded. Critical systems are exposed to easy damage and are impossible to fix. Toyota and Keep can do it. Land Rover could, but they do not have the correct will, not do they have the correct designers.

    They are building the new Defender on the RRS/D5 platform. They have stated this and people that have seen it have confirmed. That does not meet any of my criteria other than being good on the road.
  4. Their clutch housing and input shaft is designed to take them. The ones on a land rover are not. There is not space for a deeper clutch and the splines have no spare space. I'll tell you what. You go and work out a kit and prove me wrong. Great business opportunity for you.

    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    We don't want them like they used to be. We want an improved version.... Not hard to do, if they wanted, but they don't. Build a capable dual purpose vehicle for the average person. Good on road and better than anything on the planet off road. Durable, easy to repair in the bush, easy to upgrade. The formula is easy to put together and they would make more money than they would know what to do with.

    Fitting a servo to assist Clutch - help please

    Fit a heavier return spring until you are happy.
  7. You need space in the clutch housing and sufficient input shaft spline length. It would require a lot of expensive changes.

    Someone should market a kit....

    Buy any remote brake servo. Mount it somewhere. Run line from clutch master to servo. Run line from servo to clutch slave. Install vacuum line. Install vacuum reservoir (if you want to use it more than once with the engine off).

    What axle innards does the 70th Anni Defender use?

    And people that don't like driving.

    The platform sharing allows the use of the same suspension and drivetrain parts.

    broken half shaft 1990 def 200tdi

    Your description sounds like something is broken in the rear axle. You can pull the halfshafts quicker than it took you to post this question. 5 bolts and pull.

    The owner's of these trucks are not ever going to use them off road. They are lucky of they will ever leave the garage.

    X2 Issues to resolve please

    "Need" is a question. It protects the seal from damage off road. If you are just driving to the mall, who cares. Go drive a Civic.

    Brake master cylinders and servos

    That is a Disco servo. You need to modify how it attaches to the pedal box to make it work with a Defender master. if you don't want to modify, get a Defender servo. Good luck as I thought that the arm on the servo does not match the pedal.
