I have a Defender 110 300TDI with a Puma dash conversion. I need to get the rev-counter, temperature gauge and fuel gauge to work. The speedometer works btw. I understand that the rev counter can be made to work by getting a signal from the W terminal in the alternator, but I am unsure if that will work with a Puma gauge cluster, I don't wanna risk ruining the gauges. So how can I get these gauges to work?
Greetings All ! I was given a Durite oil pressure gauge & sender and want to fit this to the 300 Tdi in the 110. However - one obviously needs some sort of "splitter" for this, so both the warning light switch and the gauge sender unit get to the (lack of..) oil pressure. I failed so far to find something to solve this/ What can I use please ?
Hi guys, rebuilt my engine after a heavy smoking problem, smoking now gone and running as usual. Unfortunately, the temp gauge climbs way too fast and gets to the top of the gauge within only two or three miles of flat, straight fen road driving. It's really strange, I've filled the radiator up and it shows the normal level in the header tank and the thermostat is new and genuine (the second thermostat since the rebuild) I first tried taking the thermostat out and it stayed at quarter temp on the gauge while driving a few miles but once it was back in it climbed way too fast again. No steam or anything coming from the bonnet. Whole engine was stripped and rebuilt, head gasket was done properly and head torqued correctly. Oil level holding normal, water level doesn't really move even after gauge shows overheating. Fan belts are new and it's on a viscous fan at the moment. Water pump is a year old. Radiator has no visible damage and it's not done any of this overheating before. What's up with it??
Hi, After re-wiring my 1987 3.5V8 Efi i can not get an accurate reading out of the temperature gauge as it seems to be affected by the fuel gauge, i.e. when one goes up the other goes up, at least that's what it looks like. The fuel gauge appears to be OK as when the tank is nearly empty the reading shows low and the reserve light comes on, but occasionally it does seem to go up and down a bit. The temperature gauge seems to start ok, reading cold and then slowly going to the mid point, it also creeps up and down a bit for no obviuos reason (i.e. I'm not going up hills or anything like that). I know I can just fit an aftermarker water temp gauge but i would rather the dash one reads correctly. What do you think is going on? Is there a shared earth or live somewhere? Thanks, Paul
