  1. Maybe it's about time to present my project. I bought a rather standard looking 1990 Discovery with a 200tdi in 2009. Here is a picture from the sales add It was bought to have an extra veichle, to tow some sailing dingys and such. And we did. But then the kids went from small dinghys to larger boats. Then I got the taste for some offroading. We went to Poland to participate in the Pomerania resque Rally which is organized twice a year. We (me and my neighbour) has been there 4 times, each time in the spring. First time in 2011 Small changes to the car each year. Testing winch:
  2. Hey guys, Desperate for some advice here, hopefully someone can help with my nightmare Disco1 Engine No: 36D40381B CC rating: 3,947cc Fuel Type: Petrol Power: 134kW Drive: 4WD Transmission: 4-gear automatic Was driving around was running fine then suddenly stalled pulling out from an intersection, took a good 5-10 minutes to get it started again then yeay she started and seemed fine stupid me continued on with my trip onto the motorway (dumb i know) but she seemed to come right, after about another 10 mins cruising down motorway she stalled again and would not s
  3. I’m in the shake down stages of a rebuild and rechassis of a 1985 Ninety. It now has a 300tdi and an auto box from a 1996 Disco. All new servo, master cylinder, brake lines, calipers, discs, and pads fitted. The system bleed was straightforward and the brakes work perfectly at startup. However after 30 minutes or so of leisurely driving on farm tracks with minimal use of the brakes, all 4 discs start to bind and the brake pedal becomes solid. To the point where it will not even coast. Leave it to cool off and all returns to normal again. Is this a known issue? Thoughts / commen
  4. Hi all. I am looking at building a camper but want the best of both worlds. Good off road ability, good on road and comfortable to drive. I need at least a 130 or even a 147 wheelbase. Is there anyone in South Africa that can stretch the chassis if a discovery 2. I can get a kit to make a single cab discovery but want the long chassis of the defender.
  5. I occasionally have thoughts about the D4 and think 'I should post that...' but it always seems that when I get to the computer, it's too trivial to warrant a new thread. So I thought I would start a thread for all those trivial things and here it is...
  6. While doing some work on the TD5 Disco the other day I accidentally caught the steel coolant pipe that runs behind the rad-stack with a grinder and put a little groove in it. It's not right through but I think that with temperature cycling and vibrations it would not be a good idea to leave it since it would almost certainly crack. Since that pipe is expensive and looks like a bit of a pain to fit I was thinking of mig welding it in situ. I have drained that coolant, but there may still be a small amount of it behind where I would be welding. Is that likely to be a problem? (I am go
  7. What are good alternatives for the front seats in a discovery 1? I have a 300tdi and the drivers seat is completely collapsed. I'm considering seats from a Honda Civic Type R but very open to suggestions. I'd like something that's fairly easy to swap, not too much making it fit. Thanks
  8. While i drive my car goes into limp mode and only two injectors operate the car drives perfectly for about 20km and all of a sudden the engine just turns off. Is this a ecu problem or can you guys advise what it possibly can be

  10. I just thought some people might be interested in this... 53reg Discovery TD5 automatic with 18" wheels wearing BFG AT2's I recently drove from Aberdeenshire to Portsmouth, then around the Picos De Europa for a few days, then back from Portsmouth to Aberdeenshire, and (Unusually for me) I kept a note of fuel and mileage. The numbers are below. Miles litres MPG Notes 518.8 74.29 31.75 Mainly motorway cruising at 60mph (Aberdeenshire to Portsmouth) 243.2 44.78 24.69 Spain - sedate driving on mountain roads 149.1 26.34 25.73 Spain - seda
  11. I have a Disco 2 in which the air conditioning allows separate temparature control of the left and right sides. I drive alone quite often and I want to be able to affect both sides with one switch... So my question is: If I simply wire in a couple of jumpers between the switches, will a click on one switch affect both sides? (I am also thinking of having a switch in the jumpers so that I can have them isolated if I want)
  12. I have alloy wheels on my Disco 2, and the nuts have corroded under the caps, meaning that I can't get my impact socket on them without a struggle. (I have to use a rattle-gun to undo my wheelnuts since I am not as strong as I used to be). I don't particularly want to replace them with the same so... A while ago I found some wheelnuts for sale on ebay that were intended as replacements for the standard alloy-wheel nuts with the silly cap thing, but were solid machined steel, but now I can't find them. Can anyone help please? I guess as an alternative I could buy the normal ones and boil
  13. Anyone on here got a D2 with difflock, more specifically the cable selected difflock? I'm after a VIN number for parts hunting purposes for my merc conversion in the 90. Thanks in advance!
