  1. https://www.island-4x4.co.uk/water-pump-90110-genuine-stc639g-p-5168.html or a genuine Land Rover one for £150 + VAT ?
  2. https://www.island-4x4.co.uk/water-pump-90110-proflow-stc639g-made-p-27494.html How about one of these in a RED Britpart box ? a lot cheaper than Autopost too?
  3. Was planning to slide the transfer box off on some 10mm stud today but found this on Ashcrofts site " Check that the bolts you used to bolt the transfer box to the main box are in the correct positions. It is possible to fit a "longer" bolt in a position which will jam the intermediate gear and prevent it rotating. There are three bolts down each side attaching the transfer box to the main box and it is the middle of the three on the right hand side that causes the problem. On earlier transfer boxes a "stud" was fitted in this position to reduce the possibility of error. Sometimes the stud is omitted on later boxes or rebuilds." This is what had happened, I removed the longer (and slightly damaged bolt) and the gear pulled out as you guys had said it would. New cross drilled gear fitted and all is well again. Thanks
  4. Sorry to resurect this old thread but I have been trying to get my old (and worn ) input gear off tonight but can not, assured by my mechanic they just pull out. Swapped over LT77's at the weekend and noticed the one coming out was really worn on the splines was ok 12 months ago when it went in and hence the new cross drilled gear waiting to go in. Any ideas please ? Thanks Angus (Tried a crow bar but was scared of the outer bearing cage breaking and the rollers going down in the casing)
  5. Hi everyone, I have had a 2nd hand LT77 & LT230 transfer box fitted in my 1990 Ninety as the old gear box jumped out of !st and reverse but now it jumps out of high range in the transfer box for a while after you have been in low range then it sorts itself out. Any ideas on the cause of this would be great, My old LT230 had knackered bearings on the input gear that's why I changed it, Is there some adjustment required ?Thanks in advance Angus

    300 TDI woes

    Thanks for the ideas put a new(2nd hand) pump on and new (2nd hand ) injectors and it was a bit better, but noticed the top hose from intercooler to inlet manifold was collapsing when it tried to rev so decided to try it as a N/A and found one of the hoses on the way to the intercooler had delaminated and was blocking air flow much better now this hose has been replaced

    300 TDI woes

    Thanks for that Bob, seems so simple when someone explains it like that, will try another injection pump in case that is causing the problem, we had the head off and put a new gasket on when we were looking for the lash caps and I had a good look at the timing (before posting up here) and it looks alright, cant believe that two engines have almost the same problem, hence the new lift pump as it was the only thing we swapped over from the original engine any other ideas would be great?

    300 TDI woes

    We found 3 broken rockers and almost all push rods bent, but these have been changed, if it was going fast enough to smash all those bits then hoped every thing else was good before it let go , ie pump injectors etc I have attached a couple of pictures I took earlier, how do I know the crank is not 1 rotation out?

    Supposed to be, have you had one that was out that ran poorly? we bought an engine that had broken its belt as it must have been running to break the belt, the original ran but would not rev which we thought had the head gasket gone?

    300 TDI woes

    Hi All, I am trying to get a 300 tdi to run after it broke a belt, it starts easily but pumps loads of smoke and revs much too high for tick over and backfires, really had enough of it and would like some advice please it has had a new lift pump and head gasket as we could not find a couple of lash caps and took the head off to locate them all , also new push rods and replacement rocker shaft, tappets have been set no egr any more either, Any ideas would be great
  11. Hi Everyone, the windscreen wipers on the 1992 Defender do one cycle everytime I turn the lights on or switch from main beam to dip anyone had this or know where to start looking? Thanks Angus
  12. Thanks for that,I do have a good discovery 200tdi and was thinking of puttting the defender bits on that, Are zeus kits that bad?
  13. Hi Everyone, I am still trying to find a 200TDi set up to convert my 1984 station wagon, I have been offered one with a Zeus timing kit on it but it has sucked in water and runs rough, any ideas what its worth it? ( is a defender unit )Thanks
