Yeah you're right, a little harsh. When I joined the board it was the first thing I did. Didn't realize he just joined.

The shame is on Rover. They could have done the right thing and put the word out that new lines should be installed regularly.

Exactly, does Rover have a TSB out on these issues? They should have told him.

Even if you do not want it, I guarantee someone will buy it off of you, even as a salvage title.

DO NOT let that truck get sold to the insurance company.

What badge number was it? Believe it or not, all 500 are tracked at the Horsey Stalking Operations Center.
What is Horsey Stalking Operations Center, id like to track all the 110's?

True, I was told by the guy I bought my truck from but didn't realize how bad it was until I joined this board. Guess it doesn't hit you until you see the pics. Tragic.

Any way to put a solid & concise write up of oil cooler line swap in the FAQ or Tech section? It'd be nice to have links to steel braided products, install pictures, etc. I think it's an important enough issue for everyone with a petrol Defender to warrant it.

I was fortunate enough that my mechanic (which I found based on recommendations on this site) told me to replace them the first time he saw my truck. Had he not, it would've taken quite a while until the topic pops up every 8 months or so, for me to know there's a problem.

I have a good 3.9/R380/LT230 that is just sitting around.
Guessing demolition will reveal what all you will have to replace. Guessing about ten grand worth of damage. Certainly worth the bother on a 50-60k truck.

Just delete them and no worries.

It's a slightly inside joke on the forum... Josh (rijosho), who got the nickname Horsey, has creepy searching skills, bordering on stalking ability. Someone made a thread about it:

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=43265

There really is a list of the 534 NAS 110s that were produced. I am not sure who has the latest and greatest.

500 for NAS

25 for Canada

11 for LRNA (could be wrong on this one)

They are plated as such.

Ah you should have told him about the oil cooler lines!

Greg, what is that mounted to your dash? A Go Pro or something?

Greg,

Creepy twists of fate. I had a small electrical fire in the engine compartment of my 110 yesterday here in Pacific Beach area of SD and luckly I was able to correct and repair all the damage in 4-5 hours. Wouldn't have taken much more heat and i'd be posting pics like yours.

BTW: I'd steer clear of Landroverexchange.com . Some of the least reputable importers (IHO) post their stuff on that site. It doesnt take much for a good deal to turn into a nightmare with some of them.

Just had a simple old school compass mounted on the dash. Lots of emotions today but with all the cheering on I am tending toward restoration. Seems like a place on the east coast is tops for that work if anyone has had this restoration done let me know what I would have to look out for.

make sure to redo all oils and bearings in front axle. I seized my front right bearing shortly after resto. I think the fire baked the front axle grease

Interesting comments on this. Last summer I looked at a low mileage D90 ST at Land Rover Portland and had a lengthy conversation with the senior mechanic who they said was the "resident defender expert". When I asked the oil cooler line question, he said he had never heard of that problem. I remember being a bit shocked to hear that from an experienced Land Rover mechanic since there have been so many documented cases.

There are tons of places out East here who do some amazing work. If I were you, I wouldn't just look at East Coast Rover (ECR), as I've seen nicer work done for considerably less by members on this forum who specialize in such things...they just don't post every single photo of what they do, like ecr does.

X2 I've heard there can be an incredible waiting period with ECR. They've sort of moved into that realm where some of their clients have much more money than time. More power to them. Like any investment, do your due diligence and it'll pay off in spades.

The good thing is you've found us and it would be hard to go wrong if you leverage from the incredible knowledge base that exists here.

Don't look back and wish. Its happened. Time to move forward and rebuild. In the short term get a large tarp and straps and bring it home before the insurer steals the car to a salvage yard.
