1993 Camel Trophy Disco

So, I found this in the desert of Colorado. I figured a build thread might need to be started. Feel free to ask any questions.

Cool that you started this build thread. Keep it abreast of the story.
Interesting picture. The rear door hinge line and threshold look square, but there is a bend in the right D pillar that pushes the roof and body over. Might want to get that pulled before installing the windows. Nothing that some recovery straps, a highjack and two trees can't solve!

Love the thread!

Also, I doubt it ever had a timing belt and 20 year old timing belts are seriously bad news. I would change that before running it again if it were me.

Having owned a yellow TDI Disco, I have to say- this is really, really cool.

That back really suffered the blow the worst. I have a recovery strap and two trees, but no highjack. My buddy in town may have one, I'll see. Send me a scribbling of how you would do this. Lol, never had to do something like this.

From the looks of it, there is one used belt in the parts chest, one new, and one empty bag for one. Is there an easy way to check it?

This one came this way, but also I have a pile of spare parts in my range rover. I don't have room for a parts car. Lol






Also, I'm looking for the windshield Finisher/seal all the way around. If anyone knows anything, let me know.

Just change it. You never know the age. Buy a new OEM belt. Don't use old, unknown parts. Change the tensioner as well.

It is not the end of the world if it break as 99% of the time, the pushrods bend and nothing else happens. It is not like a 300TDI, where other parts go as well.

I used to own 1991 Discovery and this brings back fond memories.

Do yourself and the truck a favor and buy or even just rent a good porta-power setup. I could have that truck fairly straight , including the rr quarter panel, in a days time with my porta power.

To be honest, I've never used one of those guys before in my life. Body work is something I'd love to learn, but no one out here(other than businesses mainly) will teach. I've mainly worked on engines, transmissions, and suspension my whole life...

I'm just so happy that this truck is in good hands. Is it totally ridiculous that I feel like that after having ridden in a piece of CT history?

If you don't mind, when you get the chance take some shots of the bumper/brush guard setup from various angles.

Somewhere on my list, likely post VOT at this point, is the fabrication of one since so far as I can tell Brownchurch no longer makes them.

If you need D1 components from a brighter yellow version, give a holler...I've got an XD slowly being parted out.

$100 at HF. I have used Doug's and it's the bomb. Great steal and good luck with the project!

I need the windshield finisher/rubber on the top, bottom, and sides.

Yep. That frigging Steve Young had to have it.



As far as learning to use a porta power goes- its a hydraulic jack with all kinds of extensions and ends and a remote pump. They can be had for about $150. I think what needs to happen is self apparent. Get some pieces of 2x8 to place on the interior floor, pull the rear headliner and start jacking it back where it needs to be.
