Fitted the replacement Adwest manual steering box today, straight swap with the leaky Gemmer box.
Took the opportunity to re-grease the ball joint while everything was in pieces.

It appears that one of my old radius arms is a narrow arm and the other is a newer arm that was machined down to be narrow:

I wonder if this was done by land rover, maybe they ran out of old arms for spares?

Or perhaps MOD? Or maybe someone else along the way.

I had that problem. Had to get some narrow ones to fit.

Clutch swap on a 90ty 300tdi, MY 98, 210.000km, without any probs.
Three weeks ago he got a new timing belt.
That was a little bit tricky, because the owner had installed a Capstan winch in front.



This needed some cosmetics to the position of the cooling assembly.



Everything had to be removed to get it done.

I like to screw things up but this was a nightmare! Or even more!

Well after taking the 18 rusted ass bolts out of the 58 pound "one bar" plate on the rack I installed the Baroud...and I didn't think I could make this D90 look better! lol...

Guess I'll find out how good it is soon enough. Trade off in weight on the top side because the RTT weighs in at 110 lbs. the plate was 58 lbs. and the normal gear I leave up even when I'm wheeling is at least 50 lbs.

Replaced diaphragm on my 2.5TD

My symptoms were:

1. Pressure in the fuel tank when I removed the fuel cap.
2. Loss of boost in 3 and 4th gear. Boost would rise then drop off
3. Highway speeds of 50 and sometimes 55 with a tail wind

The old diagram had a small slit in it. It took me 15 minutes to replace and the results are GREAT.

No more pressure in the fuel tank.
Boost gauge goes up around 10 in all gears
Highway speeds up to 65 MPH

$31.00 in parts and 15 minutes. Great results!

Added some slick LED's Brake lights, and interior lights.

The interior lights are amazing. Especially for a cavernous interior like the 110 everything is bright and so much easier to see.

Global Roamer Overdrive (formerly Roverdrive)

Stopped in to see Ray today and pick up the overdrive unit. Amazing place he's got, watching them putting together these units in his shop.

Looking forward to installing this on the TD5 tomorrow!

These overdrive are the best. I'm putting together an order for these now if there is any Interest. I usually do a package deal with the larger sump pan for the t case as well.

I broke it. Or, it failed me, whichever

Got into the truck today to start it, starter relay clicks but the starter solenoid fails. Not sure what's going on. Could be a bad starter solenoid, or my battery is going, or my ground is bad. Not sure yet.

Spent the weekend rebuilding an 8274.

Made some floor mats/box cover out of a large utility mat. Buttoned up completely after a timing belt change... installed a block heater, adjusted doors, installed new fan belt, sealed some bolt holes, lubed some grease fittings.
