  1. It's only the engine harness part of the loom. Craddocks had a genuine LR one on the shelf for only 50Β£....Autosparks had a 12week lead time for the one I wanted (I.e without the bits I didn't need) so in opted for this instead. They still have limited stock if you're in need ( I only bought this about 10days ago)
  2. Thanks Montyjn.. now I just need to figure out the other one 😊
  3. God I love this forum!!! πŸ˜€Thanks for that...
  4. My replacement v8 engine harness arrived today (PRC4954) its for engines with ballast resistor and Aircon, which mine doesn't have but it's still ok. anyway there are 2 connectors that I haven't seen before and no idea what they are for (assuming however something to do with the aforementioned ballast/aircon but frankly no clue and my Googling has not been successful!!) pics attached.....any pointers appreciated.....
  5. Guys does anyone have install instructions for said kit in a v8 defender please... not exactly sure where all the wires connect to...but there's only a few so can't be too hard 😊
  6. Thanks Romahomepete... I'm still debating whether to fit the lap belts at all... I probably won't. Regardless though, my question was more whether the seats themselves needed any additional support under the tub. Those will be fitted anyway so I'd like to know...
  7. Hi guys I'm fitting 4 inward facing seats and 4 retractable lap belts to the rear of my 90. The rear is also ply lined with non slip resin/trailer board. Looking at the parts book, I can't really see that there are any additional stiffeners or support brackets needed for underneath the tub other than the existing front/centre/rear stiffeners already there? I would have expected that the seats and particularly the seatbelts would have needed something extra underneath - or is it just a case of using some really big washers to spread the load? Even if there is no official part to be using, what have others done? Have you put some strengthening plates etc underneath? All assistance greatly appreciated folks.... Alan
  8. Thanks for all the help folks....
  9. Ok so my saga continues. I went digging in a box of spares that came with the engine (which admittedly I had kinda forgotten about....Duh!) Turns out the connector is for a Lumenition ignition system which was on the RRC it came from! So at least the mystery is solved πŸ˜€ I found the box and connectors buried deep in said box so hopefully no damage.... Question now is whether it works on the 90, form what I can see and have read it should be largely just plug-and-play in the 90 - right??
  10. Thanks for that. Yeah I've been trying to see where the amp module would actually mount on the dizzy and there is no obvious place really either. I figured there was a cable missing as you said, but can't see it on any parts diagrams at all.... it all came from the same RRC so should be correct I guess....
  11. Oh boy.... zero replies.... were my questions that dumb??? πŸ˜„
  12. Hi guys, Rebuilding a 1985 90 with a 1987 RRC classic 3.5 carb V8 (none of which I disassembled in the first place, so makes the reverse process harder!) So i now have to connect the dizzy and coil etc and checking if I've got the right bits and a few questions: - There is a 3pin connector on the side of the distributor as per photo, does the amplifier connect directly into this or is there a cable connecting the two of them? - where does the other end of the amplifier connect to? Is that direct to one of the coil terminals and what cable is needed? - from what I can tell I need to get my hands on part number STC1184 plus a connector cable? Anything else missing? (HT leads, coil pack etc are already in place, all new) Sorry for the dumb questions, but 'sparky' stuff not my strong suit at all πŸ˜„ Cheers all...
  13. Forgot to add that the seller said that it all came from a 110..but I assume cross member would be the same anyway?
  14. Hi all when I rebuilt my 1986 '90 I fitted a carbed 3.5 v8 mated to an ex MoD Santana box. However Ive never had the correct gearbox crossmember. I've been offered one now, however it has rubber mountings on the crossmember which I don't need, so I don't know if it's the wrong one or not (guy is also selling it with a Santana gearbox but he never had them fitted so no way to know) does anyone have a pic of what it's supposed to look like? I've struggled to find any pics on google - the part numbers from Retroanaconda also don't yield any pictures. So I don't know if I'm buying yet another lump of scrap πŸ˜„ Any help appreciated
  15. Thanks Neill. Having now measured it seems one is imperial and one is metric. Seems as you said that they just changed it in the factory I guess! I didn't consider removing the olives and changing the end.....I'll try that. Thanks.
