  1. Hi, I'm thinking about replacing the steering wheel on my 1989 One Ten and I'm looking for some advice/opinions on Boss & wheel diameter please. I currently have a 16" diameter wheel and 36 spline (17mm ish) shaft. Firstly the Boss. Any recommendations? I assume they come with indicator cancelling pins and I would like a fairly short one so it doesn't bring the wheel any closer to my getting-larger-stomach. Is there a big difference between them or are they all pretty much the same? Would this Raptor 4x4 one fit the most common wheel makes that are available? Secondly, What
  2. Hi everyone have a problem with my 2003 td 4 front end when turning the wheel get a clonking noise , had front end checked by two mechanics , bushes , springs , track rod end all fine still got the problem,any ideas thanks David
  3. Trying to get the 109 back on the road, one of the jobs is to replace a dodgy track rod end - easy peasy right? Not with Volvo portals on a RHD truck, the parts just don't exist anymore. The Volvo setup uses offset TRE's, they have a cranked end to reach around the end casting at full lock: Which complicates matters somewhat, but not nearly as much as the other end: That's the drop arm joining on the nearside TRE, which has two tapered pins in one casting. The offset means you can't put LHD parts in as they're then cranked the wrong way. The offset from the cranked part is about 25.4mm
  4. Can anybody tell me what the problem is in the pic, and what parts I need to fix it? Also.. While I'm firing questions about, The 15amp fuse for the turn light, headl/tail lights and break lights keeps blowing every time I turn my 1996 Es 300tdi on, sometimes just when I'm driving to.. When I indicate right rhe trailer light flashes asswell, not sure if that's relevant.. But o haven't got a clue where to start looking for the short, any ideas? I'm new to all this land rover business, I'm pretty aware mechanically but I can't speak the language ? So any help would be great ? Thanks
  5. Hi, I got a 2000 td5 a few months back and did a 2" terrafirma full lift kit, HD steering damper. Problem is that now I have a groaning noise every time the steering is in top position when I turn the wheels from straight to the right . If I jack the right side just a bit from the ground the noise goes away, also if I put a bar under the driveshaft and push it up noise goes away when steering. I took off the driveshaft seems ok I try to adjust but the problem still there :| What could be the problem ? Do I need caster correction bushes ? thnx,
  6. Hi all, I have heard many times that "full hydro" steering is good because it will enable extreme front axle suspensión upgrades without worrying about "bump steering". Price and road legalities are the cons, but...what about using a beef steering from a 5-6 Ton van with IFS? Iveco Daily, MB Sprinter...could be donnors. Will this steerings work OK connected to standard LR PAS pump or will they need donnor´s one? Steering rack to steering wheel connection will be via a looooooooooooong slip UJ shaft.
  7. Gidday Doing some research for the legal side of a new project I'm looking at building up a 109 Slla into a tow wagon/camper, I'm putting together the application for approval of the modifications, one of the mods I want to do is power steering, the certifier I'm dealing with is in the process of gaining approval to be allowed to approve steering mods so I'm providing him with alot more detail than I normally do, part of this is detailing standard steering I still have standard steering on my Slll what I'd like to know is.... is this the same on the Slla At this stage I'm planing on usi
  8. OK, I need to consult the collective on Panhard Rod Bushes (PRB or problem as I am thinking of them at the moment!). I fitted new metalastic, all makes to every area of the discovery D1 300TDi 2" lift back in Dec. I had a terrible power steering leak, but got let down on a replacement box before a decent trip out. The ATF ate the top bush over the course of the 2000km and we did a bit of bush repair to keep it drivable. New box fitted and new bush back in in March. 3 Weeks ago got the death wobbles again and on checking the bush was shot again, about an inch of movement on the chassis
  9. Hi, I replaced the drop arm ball joint yesterday (what fun...) on my 1989 2.5 td 90, now the steering seems to have become less accurate. I can move the steering wheel 1/8 - 1/4 a turn without the wheels moving. On examination underneath, the ball joint/ steering arm is moving (ie the ball flexing in its seat), but not enough to get the rods mobile. Have I screwed up the fitting? Not tightened enough? Has it just uncovered a dodgy damper? Is this what LR steering is supposed to feel like ? (Because it was more accurate with the knackered ball joint!!) Thanks
  10. Hi Folks I'm well into the refurb on my series 3, would appreciate some advice re the steering. From a fixed point on the outer edge of the steering wheel you can turn the wheel 20 - 25mm before anything starts to move on the other side of the steering box. Is this normal ? fixable ? acceptable ? Regards Kev
  11. hi guys, got excessive play on steering,i dont drive the car that often and my other half says its fine but there is a lot of play,i have recently changed a leaky seal on the bottom of the steering box and replaced the steel pipes from the pump although i dont think this would affect the play,any pointers would be appreciated,arms or bushes or somthing ad a look round the site but cant find anything cheers.
  12. Hi there now that i am keeping my Landy I thought I would try to improve it a litte, the power steer unit has stopped leaking (for the time being) but got my heart set on doing something about it. One reason being that the steering is lousy, I can get about a 10 degrees turn on the steer wheel before the wheels turn, the uj's are fine on the column and all seems pretty solid underneath. On the motorway I darent take her above 55 as any sort of corner is scary. It doesnt respond well and when it does you oversteer to get it back and so the see saw effect begins until you slow down. One quest
  13. Morning all, I am trying to work out if it is possible to fit a straight drop arm to a 6 bolt steering box, I have been told it can be done with a 4 bolt head but the 6 bolt output shaft is smaller dia', any thoughts??????????DW
  14. So i got my first RRC and love it! ('92 Vogue with some aftermarket mods) In order to register it on Australian roads it needs to have a valid (30-day) roadworthy certificate, which it failed due to leaking power steering - I managed not to say "Well, Duh!" to the mechanic. Leaks come from both the steering box and the pump. Managed to slow the flow with Stop Leak, maybe enough to pass - we'll see. Anyway, i've looked over many forums and tech diagrams but cant find an answer to a simple question; apologies if already been asked. What type(s) of oil/fluid is in the steering box? The pu
  15. Hi, I've just bought a 52 plate 110 and I am having problems with the steering which is making a load moaning noise. It is far.... worse when I turn left rather than right...... anyone got any ideas as I've been struggling with this for the last month and I am quickly running out of WD40!! Thanks.........attachment=39197:LR.jpg
  16. Hi, I'm trying to track down the cause of my steering problems. It is a G reg One Ten and I think I have more than one issue here. All bushes are yellow polybush and were fitted by previous owner. I have had the car for around 4 years now I think. 1) Firstly when I come off the accelerator the car veers slightly to the left and when I put on power, it veers slightly to the right. 2) The whole car sometimes feels as though it shimmies. I can be driving along and it feels as though it the back end has snaked gently. I won't have hit any pot holes or bumps. 3) If I do hit a pot hole or bump,
