Maintenance Question and Defender 130 Bed Questions

My defender has 230,000 KM. It will not start and I think that it is due to water being in the fuel filter. This has prompted me to do a full service and I was wondering what brand people like to use in North America for filters and oil.

Oil Filter, Fuel Filter, Centrifugal Filter, Air Filter?
Engine Oil?

Is sticking to genuine a smart move or are the aftermarket brands just as good?

PS: Anyone know where to find the little body piece that goes in front of the 130 tire on the bottom part of the 130 bed. Photo attached. Does anyone sell repair parts for the bed?

Not really sure what kind of engine you are running.

I just get service kits from UK. I typically go for Britpart "Other Brands" (aka "Premium") kits, these contain no parts manufactured by Britpart, which is great, and include all parts you need to service your engine.
The part kit for your TD5 would be DA6004P and costs approx CAD33 plus S&H. I don't believe it's any cheaper to buy the local parts piece-meal way, even Cambodian Tire parts will cost you more.

Get yourself or download a parts catalog and a workshop manual. It is best to find part numbers on your own and search the deals on parts. As above, try and get OEM parts when you can. Don't worry about buying things locally.

Hopefully water did not get into the injection system....

I dont think it is that cold but I did run the fuel tank low. The fuel is now at 25L but still wont start. Think I might have to purge. Temperature is hovering around freezing, its not that cold.

Also, don’t underestimate weak battery. Does it crank and crank but not start? Do you have a reason to suspect water in fuel?

Jim, I barely got 2 days with it before I had to head back to the US for work. It is such a beast, I love it. Customs and getting it over was a breeze. But it is not starting

I did not suspect water in fuel filter until I got back stateside and started reading about the little orange light that has bowl with droplet and I think I remember seeing that stay on when trying to start.

Battery cranks the starter just fine. I actually removed the battery all together and put it on a tender so that what I get back, it should be solid.

I am getting the fuel pump whining noise too. It was whining on the second day on the short drives i did around the neighborhood and then it wouldn't start.

Jonsey, he is busy trying to figure out how to get from Zimbabwe to Tanzania through Nairobi, everybody knows that! He explained it late one night at Uwharrie but that treasured knowledge has since been lost. It will yet be revealed though.

I vote you go with your Canuck counterparts advice on your 130. Not many TD5s in the states yet, and they will know how to deal with that horror you call “winter”.

This is how we roll here in FL

The pieces in front of the rear wheels are a dealer only item. I had to buy a pair for one of my 130's and they were close to $250 for the pair back in 2009.

I do fondly remember that chat with Mr Burgess - I had to walk away I was peeing myself....
