  1. Bump 😊 Finding conflicting info that it’s either 1/2UNF or 5/8 UNF. Anyone able to confirm it would be super helpful.. thanks guys
  2. Hi guys I have a carbed 3.5 V8 from a 1981 Range Rover in my 90. im installing a oil pressure gauge (because I just have it) and the née sender is 1/8 NPT thread so I need an adapter. Is the original one a 1/2 UNF thread or what? I can’t find much info on it thanks Alan
  3. Super... thanks for the pointers guys...
  4. Hi guys - not sure if I should post this here or on the Discovery forum 🙂 My 90 has both axels from a 1996 300tdi Disco 1. However I don't know what VIN number vehicle they came from. I need to get some replacement axle parts and don't know whether its the VIN up to JA032850 or from JA032851 onwards. Was the differentiation the number of splines changing from 10 to 24 or something else ? (mine has 24 splines anyway if that helps) Any help appreciated (so that I buy the right parts) Alan
  5. I said I have NO wiper or HRW 🙂 Hence I used the trailer wire as it’s only needed for rear lights.
  6. Thanks Paul - Sorry I probably wasn’t very clear. I know they are bullet connectors but was wondering if anyone has the details of the configuration of them, e.g these color wires connect to a 3way connector, these to a 4way. I’m sure they are a mix of male/female within the same block also as the 10way one is the same.
  7. Hi guys 1985 LR90 with no HRW or wiper - I didn't have the chassis loom so made one up from trailer wire instead. Does anyone have a photo of the connectors on the chassis loom in the engine bay that connect into the main 10way connector please? Or even have a diagram of same perhaps? I had had assumed it was a 8 or 10way connector also on the chassis loom, but now realizing that it may be a collection of 3 or 4 way connectors instead (I have a random box of connectors from other old looms so I might be lucky and find the right ones that I could reuse) Hope im making sense 🙂 Alan
  8. Hi guys... so, an ex-RRC V8 in a 90. The white wire (on the engine loom) which runs over to the coil seems to have an additional connector midway on the wire. It’s quite short, as if it’s meant to connect to something on the engine itself such as a sensor. Any ideas?? Thanks.....
  9. Ok thanks, I assumed it would make some noise even without having fuel.
  10. Hi guys - just hooked up the chassis mounted fuel pump tonight. I’m assuming that at ignition position II I should hear the pump hum a little as it primes? Because I’m hearing nothing. it gets power at pos. II alright, and it’s earthed correctly etc. however the tank is empty as that’s also new - do I need fuel in there for it to be able to build pressure and prime or??
  11. Yeah...So when I ground the gauge wire, the gauge raises to full so that’s good and means it’s working. Doing same for the low level light illuminates it fine, so again that’s good. It’s just that connected directly to the sender it only illuminates faintly and when I connect an earth wire to that 3rd terminal nothing happens to improve that. is there a specific earth wire that should run back to this? I have not found one so I was just connecting a homemade earth to various random earth points trying to get it to work! (Which is probably the source of my problem?)
  12. Thanks, I’ve also been told today that I’m approaching this wrong and that there is zero earth for the tank?. I.e. That there should be one 12 volt positive feed in, then 2 feeds out to the low fuel light, and to the fuel gauge ( which does seem logical I guess) So if that’s the case, then I have a 3rd wire I need to locate! 🥴
  13. Hi all, I’ve fitted a new tank and sender to my late 80’s 90 rebuild. Tank is still empty now so testing the connections first before making a more permanent loom to it. Not sure where the earth (in blue in pic) should connect? I’m only getting a faint illumination on the ‘empty tank’ dash light so it seems to be an earth issue, but it doesn’t matter where I try to earth it to it’s not grounding. The only time the fuel light illuminates at the right brightness is if I connect earth back to the white/grey wire (but I’m guessing that’s not right??) What am I doing wrong please?
  14. Hi ballcock (now there’s a phrase I never thought I’d have to say) it’s just for the rear lights, the issue is just the thickness of the wires coming from the main loom. They just physically won’t fit for the 1.5mm gauge connectors...and I can’t find anything for 2.0mm or bigger which is waterproof
