Sorry to hear about your belt snap for sure.

Normally you should be OK to refit if it was a slow speed snap (and obviously if the rocker shaft hasn't snapped either). If it were I and the circumstances were as I described I'd just replace the belt and see,after starting up gingerly. I also wouldn't use a Britpart kit (Bearmach or Genuine LR along with replacement crankshaft seals by either Corteco or Land Rover)


Possibly,just quite possible,that golden rule of fitting the pushrods in the correct order might not apply,but you'll have to wait until someone with more experience chimes in.

Oh man, that is too bad - sorry to hear. Hope the damage is indeed limited.

How can we tell if the valves are bent without taking the head off? If this is an indication we put a straight edge on top of the valve stems and one is a little higher than all the rest. Would this mean that all valves are bent except one?...

Due to rains and flooding in Houston, I opted to drive my 90, just in case I came across some high water in need of forging. The 90 had different plans, complete clutch failure lead to the need of a tow. Should have stayed home instead, live and learn.

P.S.- no high water encounter enroute to clutch failure zone!

I know how it feels... Saturday I started the day opening the pool until I found that the pump had cracked over the winter... Ordered parts and went for a ride in the Landy with the newly installed 200tdi ---> we snapped the timing belt Should never got out of bed last Saturday

That's a good question... I have no idea. Nothing reasonable I can come up with. Interested to see an answer if any.

Assume that with the diesel there's almost a 100% chance of head collision. So looking at the pistons would be pointless.

Removed the rocker shaft and cranked the engine Checking that no air passed through the admission or exhaust. It looks good! I believe the valves were spared

Interesting... is "admission" a regional dialectical aberration?

Ah I didn't realize that I translated from Spanish 'admisión' the way we call the intake

Had the transfer case bits all cleaned up at the local machine shop and they painted them to boot. Score!

Continuing teardown and starting to reassemble with new bits. Of note, the LT230 open center diff I have has copper thrust washers on the two "side" splines which is interesting, as the Ashcroft kit comes with fibre washers. Not sure why, but it's confirmed on their page for the LT230 master rebuild kit.

I hope to have the unit completely reassembled in the next day or so.

When I rebuilt mine I had to reuse the fiber washers. The ones in the kit from Ashcroft were too thin if I remember correctly. It was still within tolerances so I didn't worry about ordering a different thickness. So far so good!

110 Land Rover went for it's MOT yesterday, it passed with no advisories but the front axle suspension bushes were well worn I discovered whilst fitting new front brake pads. Fitted new ones today down at Horsham Forge​. They have a nice large fly press. The job went smoothly but lining the bolt holes up to refit the "hockey sticks" was a complete pain in the ass. Discovered the track rod ends on the tie rod were past their best so replacing them is tomorrow's little project.

Picked up new water pump alternator and fan coupling while in Clifton Park Ny for business. You can guess the vendor!
