  1. Hi guys, Can any body advise on what the torque value should be for the bolts that secure the "Tie bar" to the bottom of the steering box? I have looked and can't seem to find anything relevant in the manuals (probably just me being dense though ). If it makes any difference this is for the Gemmer manual steering box that came originally fitted to my 90 which is of B-registration vintage. Many thanks!
  2. Hey guys, who knows what this little hole is and why is it leaking? its on a 4 bolt pas box.
  3. My Disco has a worrying habit of wobbling like the wheels are terribly balanced, just after 45mph. I searched online and came up with a lot of probable causes... Wheel balancing Steering damper Bushes Swivel preload Along with these ideas, there were just as many people saying "it can't be the damper/bushes/swivels" and so on. So I figured I'd get on with finding out for myself. First was the swivels, mainly because I'd already replaced one about a year ago, so I check the preload and the new (ish) one is fine, the other has none at all. Great, that'll be the culprit then? No. Next did all the bushes, which was a PITA but doable. No difference. The wheels didn't need balancing, and the wobble was there with two different sets anyway. So what's left? Well, the steering box itself has a leak and a little play in it. Out comes the credit card and not long after arrives a refurb'd steering box. I know, I searched, lots of "only buy new", "refurbs never work" etc. Anyway, before I got to that, I figured I had nothing to lose by replacing the steering damper as I had a spare (new) unit sat in the garage. Hey presto, wobble is almost gone. My suspicion is that the steering box is toast, and the old damper had no resisting effect so the wobble was pronounced. The new damper is, well, dampening the wobble to a huge extent, but the box still needs replacing. So, started on Saturday afternoon, got the old box out fairly easily (and noted a front bearing needs doing to), only to find I can not shift the drop arm. Ordered a replacement drop arm, but have to wait until Tuesday for it to arrive - that's "The Weekend Problem". I now vow to start any jobs on Wednesdays.
  4. Steering box is leaking from the top cover.... Without buying a new box or adding Stop Leak fluid what can I try? I've tried tightening the 4 bolts. Can I take the top off and reseal it ? Any pointers appreciated......
  5. Right well, working my way round the little jobs post not and work on the wrinkles. One issue has been play in the steering. When driving down along if you hit a bump or pot hole and the car lurches trying to catch it due to the play seems quite alarming. Feels like you would end up on the other lane. Now I know there is a bit of its a landrover but seems worse than my old 200 tdi. Anyway whilst it was in the local independent for some other work, they had a look, and adjusted the box up as much as possible without it locking up. And whilst it was better its still not confidence inspiring. Now they mentioned that the 6 bolt fitted have a tendency to be worse than the 4 bolt. Now the chassis is a galv one so don't fancy cutting it about to fit a 4 bolt one. So what are the options? Just change it for another one? I have heard lots of stories about replacement bits being worse than the bits replaced so any recommendations Thanks

  7. Having replaced the output shaft seal on my steering box, I was not happy trying to get the seal in (still leaking). I have since found out that I should have used some special tools. I tried at the time to fabricate some thing that would allow the lip to pass the cir-clip groove, but without success. I have tried to Google the tools to see them but no results are showing. Rave only shows the input shaft seal protector lrt-57-016. What has any body else had success fitting them with?
  8. desperatly trying to get my steering bled, it is doing my head in and need my work truck back on the road, please help. power steering died when driving home the other day, so pulled over to find the pump looking pretty hot and smoking, so took the belt off and drove home. thought it would be the pump so bought a new britpart one from paddocks, fitted it and there was no change. so then thought it must be the box, took the box off and replaced that. had a small piece of mushed up aluminium fall out of one of the port holes when i chucked the old box on the bench which reassured me it was buggered. so now have new pump and box and still cant get power steering to work, i tried bleeding it for hours last night. got the wheels jacked up, and nipple un-done. have been steeruing from side to side like a mad man but the pump isnt pumping!!! it is not circulating in the reseviour, and i can crack off the banjo bolt for the pump outlet whilst its going and it doesnt come pissing out like you would expect? i cannot get it bled through. tried for ages then thought that the new pump must be carp so refitted the old one (as it seems to work fine in my hand), and i cannot get that bled thrugh either! bear in mind, pumps good, box is good, pipes and all good and resevior definatly not blocked as ive checked it. if you have had this problem yourself then i would appreciate some advice.
