hub cap dust cover EX MOD 110 part#

I have ordered 2 different sets of hub caps for my rover. Both were wrong. Thought I'd ask before going and ordering another set.

Anyone know what part number is for an exmod 110 wheel bearing dust cap?

I've tried
RNE186 and FTC 5414 both way too small. Both stated they were for and 110/90 where i purchased them

All 4 of mine are the same cap... one is cracked and currently band-aided with some glue and a piece of plastic due to slinging grease. Its holding, but.......

others that look right FRC4377 and FRC3991??????

So... I've got 2 sets of caps up for grabs too.
Pm me if they fit your needs.

Thanks again...
Ben

Hmm... well it looks like Rovers north is selling the wrong thing..
rne186 is listed with them as a generic FRC4377 but.. definitely not right. dag nab it.

There are only two kinds. The early one FRC4377 for the thick flange and the late one FTC5414 for the thin flange. They look quite different.

You should be able to tell from the pictures on the internet. What are you looking for? Maybe post up a picture of what is on your truck and what you have purchased.

You may want to consider swapping out the entire flange to the TerraFirma HD ones. I got sick of torn and popped off caps long ago and put these on the fronts & backs:

I have something that looks like both of those. They have the same size ID, or close to.
The ID of mine is about 0.5" larger.

FRC4377 is in my hand.

I haven't an idea of what came on this chassis originally. It may have been to depot and repaired with other suitable parts.

Can't see well with the lighting, but the part on the left is heavily conical, the right is much nearer cylindrical, but still tapers to a dome. nearly identical, but scaled 20%.
The rover claims to be an '87 or '88 era model.

No castle nut... under the grease is a cir-clip. and... I guess that's a spacer?

Have you tried it? It probably fits. All the early flanges are the same. There is nothing else to choose from.

I didn't use a hammer.. but I gave it a good kick. The axle would likely come close to pushing out the end of the cap. Its much shorter.. nevermind the diameter.






I guess we can say that it is the other one (that doesn;t exist) frc3991

Now.. caveat emptor, the fact that that exists on exmod means nothing... the other models are on there too.

FRC3991 is for Series 3 flanges. You have a Defender flange. I suspect someone has just put on the wrong caps. You should need a hammer to put a new one on.

well, I'll sacrifice one... Maybe the army ones are intentionally large for ease of replacement.
drum roll....

well... i can smash it on there. Its definitely smaller... but they didn't noticeably split when I hammered them on.
They are quite a bit lighter duty and smaller than the old ones, but...

Well.. I'll keep the old ones around as man... those things are forced on there. .. probably take a torch or solvent to get them off.
Or a well placed rock.

So.. is that just the way they fit? Force them over the axle spacer thing.. They're a different shape now that they're on there. They're quite stretched.

Has to be the tightest tolerance ever put on a british car.

but if those fit... those terra firma things should as well... and I like them a lot better.

Have to remember though.. those 3991 are from 83+ rovers... being an 87 it is definitely an 83 plus.
My 73 had metal ones like in the picture... not the same as a 3991

But.. RED90... yes... rovers should not go over $10... somehow they have. I remember my last series 3... I don't think any single part cost more than $10 from british pacific... and I'd usually get it in 2 days. Entire cases full of parts where the shipping cost more than what was in them.

The picture above is from the Series 3 parts catalog.

I know...

But still.. 83+ is 83 plus.. isn't 84 a 110?

Anyway... its on there.. so tight it is likely as water tight as previous...

Thanks all...

All I can say is if there is a different flange or cap used on early Defenders, I can't see it in any parts catalog, including the military catalogs.

I literally just put one of these on my 90. I had to use the newer style because I've got disco axles now, but it fit just like you describe. I had to hammer it on.

I too had this problem earlier this year, RN dose have the correct fitting cap, the trick is to get the sales person to go visually(get off their arse) look for the cap, took three sales people/times for me to get it correct.

My original one was a soft rubber cap with the LR logo on it if it helps.

hammered on seems to work. THe grease on the fronts made an air tight seal made them want to bounce off. The rears seemed to clip in place. definitely not the same part... but similar enough. The material isn't even close. New ones are probably ABS and the old ones are hard rubber.
I saved the original rears (in good shape) in case I have a failure. THey are about 20% longer and go on with a good slap.

Probably just the military using the wrong part. There were a bunch of S3 MOD vehicles too.
