Just picked up a 85 110 and need some advise

We bought a 110 and it comes with a broken front 10 spline axle.. I am wanting to convert it to 24 spline and was wondering if the parts from a disco axle will do the trick. It has a sals in the rear I assume its 3.54 ratio.

the motor is a 3.5 V8 5 spd left hand drive. I will get the 110 over the weekend and would like to start working on it.

Any help would be great

Thanks guys

Yes, the hubs/differential etc will all swap over from a disco 24 pline axle.

Only thing you need to check first, when you strip the 110 axle down make sure it's go the 7 bolts that hold the complete swivel assembly on. Early rangerovers were only 6 bolt, but i'm pretty sure all 110's were 7... But you know what LR are like with their swapping of parts over.

But other than that, yes, all the bits will swap. You might as well just swap the whole axle over if you've got it, the disco casing is the same (unless it's a 300Tdi era one, as the radius arms are slightly wider with wider bushes... if these are on the axle use those too.)

Are the brakes the same from the disco to defender? my 90 brakes are huge in comparison to the disco.

Thanks guys looks like I will just swap the complete housing assembly over

Congratulations on the new truck
My '85 110 has 7 bolt axle cases.
The discs are the same but the callipers aren't. Disco callipers have smaller pistons and are dual circuit. The easiest thing is to keep the 110 callipers and put them on the discovery axle.

NAS Discos are single circuit, solid disc. NAS 90 are single circuit, vented. Also in the change from imperial to metric (whenever that happened) the caliper bolts are different sizes. Can't remember which way round it goes now but it’s possible the 110 caliper holes will need to be opened out slightly to work with the disco metric brackets if it’s that way round. If its the other way they will be loose.

So measure carefully before committing to anything.

If you want to keep your original axle housing, brakes, and the 110's heavy duty AEU2522 cv joint's, there are several companies that sell heavy duty 24 spline inner axles. By using those you would only have to upgrade the diff to 24 spline.

This sounds like the best betif the CV joints are stronger.

Well I got it home recieved the axles a few days ago converted it to 24 spline from GBR. Changed the fluids tightened up all the suspension adjusted the carbs resealed the manifolds, adjusted the doors, fixed a bunch of crappy wireing and it drives pretty good.

Im thinking the motor isn't a 3.5 v8 anymore as it is missing the lower head bolts on heads and block. The LT85 is a little clunky and noisy compared to the 95 90s 380. But all in all shifts good. Plans are rear disc conversion heavier front coils, sits low with the ARB and 9000k winch. The frame is totally rust free and the only rust I could find is on the rear fender caping and some in the floor of the bulk head drivers side.

I removed the Defender decals from the sides, they just dont do it for me. Im thinking about painting a set of my wolf wheels black and ditching the disco wheels. I have a few more clunks and rattles to find but for the most part its ready for the road.

Might just have had the heads off for some reason and left the lower row of bolts out on the rebuild. Pretty common.

Easy way to check is to grab the engine # and look up what it is.

There is no place for the lower head bolts IE no holes in heads or block, where is the numbers at?

Look on the driver's side down between the middle exhaust ports. It's on a part of the block thats sticking out the side facing up. Once you find it, you want the 1st 2 numbers and the letter. Then look it up on one of the engine lists online. Most of them are not fully comprehensive so you might have to search around to find it. Here is a start:
