    Stub axle oil seal help needed

    Hi, I had the same exact issue! This seal runs on the cv joint just under the 'cup end. You will have to measure the seal land as FTC840 has a larger inner diameter compared to FTC3145. The difference is about 2mm! Around the '91 to '94 Land Rover did quite a few changes and I found this out the hard way by ordering parts that didn't fit. even the stub axle was superceded! Hope this helps, let me know if you need more info as I have done this exact job recently! Steve
  3. Ooow nice! Things to note: Titanium caliper brackets! The front winch holds 85m of rope! Steve

    Sealing Rear Door Glass

    Mo, I used a tube of sealant for my rear window. I think it was something like this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/290816400419 Steve (I searched for windscreen tube sealant)

    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    Now I haven't read all this post....but I've found this article from a reliable source (Automotive testing magazine!) https://www.automotivetestingtechnologyinternational.com/news/rd/land-rover-defender-reaches-1-2-million-kilometer-test-milestone.html?utm_source=mailing&utm_medium=email And No! there's no final design photos...these cars are mules in disguise!

    Steve200TDi's New Racer!!

    Right, so I got the tubes cut out and sent off for new ones to be made. In the mean time I started to grind off the welds and make it smooth again ready for the new tubes. Old bent tubes New bent tubes without the third bend! Still more making good needed, but I have the new tubes ready now which also need to be trimmed! Steve

    Range Rover L322 Pads and disc renewal

    Thanks I might have to become a member......so I can find the workshop manual! Steve
  9. Right, I haven't seen a how too on here (prepared to be told wrong!) and so I thought I would do one. I have searched the web and found nearly all the info I need. It has the larger brake calipers on the front beings its the 4.4 diesel V8. I've found conflicting information regarding caliper mounting bolt torque settings. The rears I believe are 65Nm, the front smaller sliding caliper is 110Nm and the larger front caliper is supposedly 275Nm. I just thought this was a bit high! Any further info on this would be great. I am yet to try and download the RAVE stuff. Steve

    TD5 engine swop

    What model are the TD5 engine as there are two: 10p and 15p. Yes, you would need to sort the injectors out. What's wrong with the existing engine? Steve
  11. I made a custom centre dash out of fibreglass here: You could have a go at the same style.... It's still in my 90 and I still love it! Steve

    Noisy fuel pump

    You say the pump is below the tank. I'm guessing the feed to the pump is at the bottom of the tank too as the pump would still need to siphon it out of the tank if the connections were on top of the tank! Steve
  13. The lazy tongs style riveters work well, less effort too! This type: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-HEAVY-DUTY-LAZY-TONGUE-TONG-HAND-RIVITER-RIVET-GUN-POP-RIVETER-5-NOZZLES/380865447239?epid=2289615738&hash=item58ad598547:g:MjIAAOSwuRRcpbpX Steve

    Starting turning on an old lathe

    Oh yes, I was going more on the position rather than the tool type, but yes, you would need a proper boring bar for boring! Steve

    Starting turning on an old lathe

    I think also that that way is more for boring internal diameters, but if it works, then great! I must have a go on my lathe as I've built, but haven't done any turning let along seeing if its flat/true........haha, so many jobs and projects on the go! Steve
