i put the new galvey middle doors on.

Anyway, very happy with the end result - was actually fairly easy to get the bits and pieces all together - the mounting was tough bloody things are heavy and awkward to mount by myself.

Yes sir

The heater core suffered a bad leak recently, so I had to disassemble it to get at the core.

Once inside, I realized that there were mud, leaves, and rust in there (probably mostly my doing). The foam had also disintegrated so I am completely rebuilding it. I have also cleaned the motor and re-lubricated it, which has really improved the speed of the fan.

Still in progress...

Did you replace the core or have it rebuilt?

Complete replacement. A recore is not cost effective AFAIK.

What is that to the left of the lower dash speaker? Depending on how tall you are, you might want to reconsider that speaker on the lower dash.

Heater core bypass for the summer?

Woops...meant to put this in Tech not in this sub thread...


All summer I have been suffering from hot air still coming through the vents...has anyone ever put a bypass just prior to the heater core that you could close off the core during the summer and then open during the winter?

I think the heat coming into the cabin is often due to (open) holes between the cabin and engine bay (i.e. On the firewall). There is a thread about it somewhere on this forum. Make sure this is not your problem!

------ Follow up post added September 13th, 2015 09:08 PM ------

I -drove- the D this weekend! I need to take care of the distributor cap. A little humidity and it fires on 7 (6?) cylinder until the engine bay heats up! anyway, got me to the parts store so I could buy brake part cleaner. I replaced the rear brakes (rotors and bad) on the D1 as well as the front shocks. I did not know shock bushing could melt/vanish! I wondered what happened there.... I can only think that some brake fluid was spilled on it. Next step is to take it to get the alignment done.... Apparently it is "visually out".... If that proves true, I'll buy beer to the safety inspector and I'll go buy glasses for myself....

Second monlands suggestion to check for unfilled holes in the bulkhead. Missing grommets will make your heater useless in the winter and your cabin very hot in the summer.

There should be zero need for a bypass on the heater. The way the heater box is built, there should be very little to no heat blowing through the box when the cold flap is engaged.

The upper connection is just pointed to the bracket!
Monday will tell.
Welded today.
And it fits the position after some bendings well again.



To fit the inner ring of the bearing both of the two M12 studs will be used.
Im just pondering about an easy solution.



Dismanteling was easy with a two-arm puller.

it's a switch for LPG conversion that was on the truck when I got it.
Anybody familiar with this? I know what it is but have never seen one on a defender in the states.

I thought about the speaker placement and tested it out and I have plenty of leg room. Was actually surprised since I'm 6"3.

Changed my mind about fitting the inner ring:

About 80C will do to fit it by gravity force.

So the tool got some nice paint.



Pondering about a puller pulled by the other one to remove the main shaft bearing.

I just drove cross country this summer with the same problem in my '72 series 88. Got to the west coast and realized my heater cable was snapped and the heat was on the whole time.
