2.5 NA Critical Spares

Are there any critical spares that you would want to have for a cross-country trip in a new-to-me 110 with an unknown 2.5 NA? I understand that these motors are supposed to be rock-solid.

Belts, fluids. Lots of tools.

The engines do fail. They get pushed pretty hard with highway driving.

A good tool box, belts , fluids , a hose repair kit , duct tape, spare lamps (tail,turn,head) and a 12v test probe. Slow and steady.
Remember before you head home to put air in your tires as this will help the drive. Good luck with the trip Chris.

Thanks, guys. Do either of you have a part numbers list for the motor, or at least a list of parts numbers for the belts?

Also looking for a workshop manual but not having much luck.

Jug of Rotella and some jumper cables.

Oh and a fuel filter also. Those can clog on a diesel and stop you dead in your tracks. Since that happened to me I don't travel without one.

An internet connection so you can log in here and ask for help if needed

I have the the following CD if you want to use it for the trip.

http://www.rimmerbros.co.uk/Item--i-LHP26DVD

Also have a bunch of manuals and stuff I downloaded over the years I could put on a flash drive for you.

Can loan you a few tools that may come in handy (remote starter switch) dependant on what you have for tools

The problems I have experienced with them have been leaking injection pumps which there is no fix for otherwise just keep the rpm's down. Any idea when it was removed from service ?

Thanks, guys. That's very helpful. I have lots of tools ready to go in a Pelican case but my spares collection is still NAS Defender-specific. Dave, I'll check with you offline about the DVD, thanks.

My plan is to take it very easy on the drive back to Colorado. I'm a slow poke of a driver anyway, so I will plot a route on the back roads where I can drive 45-50 and nobody will care.

The truck came out of military service on Jan 30th of this year. I don't have the full service record of it's Army career yet. I would assume that the military PMCSed somewhat regularly even if it sat around, but we'll see.

In my driving of 2.5na diesel rovers I've had two water pumps fail and at least two fan clutches fail. Other than that they seem to keep going.

I parked my 2.5 110 csw for almost 2 years before taking it on a long trip. Only situations were clutch master cyl. leaking (but leaking on the inside so not losing much pressure). So topped it up 2 times a day, and shifted without it once out of 1st gear. Also u-joint went bad so just packed it with grease by hand every 2 hours for the last 500 miles (though would have just taken front prop off if I really had to). So brake/clutch fluid (tiny funnel helps if its LHD) and grease gun perhaps.

When you buy the brake fluid bottle, leave the seal on it and poke a small hole. You can then "squirt" the fluid easily into the reservoir.

It was not my idea. Someone, somewhere showed me and it is a saver especially with a LHD Defender.

I'd make sure your tool kit includes a 2lb lump hammer too, can be used to fix the majority of starter motor problems on a short term basis. I recently had a problem with my Tithonus were the starter motor kept spinning even when the engine was turned off. Solved with a few taps from the hammer followed later by removing and cleaning it. Id also make sure you have a 1/2 inch spanner handy in the cab, and not tucked away in a tool box in the back, that way you don't have to go looking for it if you need to remove the battery lead quickly in the case of electrical problems.

Considering my style of housekeeping, there is no "handy" in the cab. I keep the 1/2" spanner in the battery box, where lots of extra crap doesn't accumulate.
