  1. Only 3 times the price....
  2. Just be cautious with this route. If it uses a regular stainless sheath (304 or 316), it will eventually suffer corrosion, become brittle and break off. The turbo may not enjoy injecting it. If you are going pre-turbo, make sure it has a real Inconel sheath.
  3. No. That is the force at the wheel (for the torque curve). It is wheel force, power and speed. Not adjusted back to the engine.
  4. Your TDI is not adjusted correctly. Seriously... Her in the land that Land Rover forgot, everyone that has a Defender has either a 2.5NA or a 200TDI. I've done many swaps and driven the trucks before and after and every trip has trucks with the two engines. The pre-boost torque is the same. It just feels less, because when the boost kicks in, you get so much more.
  5. There is no way in hell those are strong enough. Without bracing the stock axle tube will bend. The portal box is way too light for the loads. No pictures of the front.... No details on the design or component size. Anyone sending them 10000 Euros needs to come and see some nice land I have for sale.

  7. 3 mm, Inconel sheath, type K thermocouple,. Use a 1/4" male pipe thread (NPT or BSP) x 1/8" stainless steel compression fitting drilled through for the TC. Drill and tap manifold in the center just below the turbo flange. Insert TC tip to the center of the gas flow. Here is a nice simple package. Choose whatever thread style you wish. https://www.auberins.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=5_22&products_id=589

  9. He wants to do a complete rebuild of the axle and then swap. This keep the truck off the road for a shorter period of time.
  10. You must flip the diffs. This would require redoing the location of the studs, cutting new ring gear slots and welding on a new pan. They don't do a Salisbury version. Overall it look very underbuilt.
  11. It doesn't. Driven both extensively back to back.
  12. From idle until when the turbo produces boost, the torque is almost identical to the 2.5 NA.

  14. Best Defender engine. That is funny. Let's be realistic. They are all carp. All much too small That is why Land Rover lost the market. The inability to put proper engines in their vehicles.
  15. That is a grounding issue. Most likely the engine ground or the main bulkhead loom ground is poor.
  16. Well, if you want help, you need to be open to suggestions. Anyway. Jack up both wheels. Leave it in gear. Unlocked, spinning one wheel should make the other spin backwards. Locked, neither should spin. If one can spin, does the other spin backwards, not at all or in the same direction? Once you do these tests, you can start to focus in on the finding the broken item. This is not rocket science. It is beyond me why you mechanic could not figure out the problem is five minutes. You just leave the diff cover off and see what is broken...
  17. The early gauges (pre 300TDI) are actually quite linear and responsive. You can clearly see the difference between 83 and 88. You can easily see when the thermostat opens. When it is all working properly.
  18. Not on a stock 200TDI.... Land Rover changed from an 83 C thermostat in the previous engines to an 88 C with the 200TDI, but did not change the gauges.... Thus all period correct 200TDI Defenders should read above half way normally.
  19. Start with more details.... What vehicle? What year? What axle? Are the halfshafts and drive flanges stock or aftermarket? The locking collar locks the case to one side gear not to planetary gear. As above, my guess would be a worn out spline, probably at the drive flange.
  20. What exact gearbox do you have (provide serial number) and what transfer case ratio.
  21. Yes, you should change the seal. And you need to take the flywheel out. It needs to be resurfaced. Putting a new clutch on a worn flywheel is a bad idea.
  22. And make sure you get the flywheel resurfaced.
  23. If you are checking the wiring, you first need to read and understand the wiring diagram.
  24. Yes. I'm pretty sure it is impossible to fit them any incorrect ways.
  25. You need to drive more than that for the oil to get up to the oil thermostat temperature.
