Don't get emotionally attached until you drive it home...

Most I would pay is in the low 40's... Bring a member with you to look at it, there are plenty in your area.

So I sent some of you PMs. But then I did a search on the guy selling this Defender and found him here. He seems to check out based on the community here on this board. It sounds like he is legit, has been to local roundup events, and does some vetting for other cars for sale.

I still think his price is high. But I will keep you guys posted. I really can't say enough about how much I appreciate your input. Regardless, I think if the price is right I'll be driving a Defender. If it's not this one, then I'll keep looking.

Thanks again guys

Interesting... I may be in need of one of these. Do you happen to have the Genuine LR part#? I couldn't find anything on this. Thanks in advance.

I think there is a Land Rover Technical Bulletin on it and it gives the part numbers for the hose, two clamps, and a zip tie IIRC. I'll check the parts catalogue when I'm back at work, but I'm on vacation for the next two weeks and won't be back at work until the 13th.

Looks like it's made of unobtanium ... Probably any flexible hose that has re-enforcement so it doesn't collapse under intake vacuum would be fine.

I've ordered one and I know one of my coworkers has ordered at least two through the dealership. They had them in stock in the NJ warehouse. They may be NLA, but this was less than a year ago.

It's still expensive for a flexi hose ... What we need is a bling silicone version!

It definitely wasn't that expensive. I think I paid around $100. It is overpriced for what it is, but you'll likely never need to replace it again. Also, I'm pretty sure that the air box and plenum have different sized holes, so you can't use a generic piece of hose without adapters.

The PO of my truck went this route after the steering shaft knuckle cut through the original hose. The resulting air leak didn't manifest itself until north of 3000 rpms. Just about every part on the ignition and fuel systems were replaced in an attempt to troubleshoot. It's documented here on forum.

Let's be honest. For the price of this truck I should have a perfect plenum hose ...

Just wanted to update you guys on this truck. I took someone to look at it, and they said the rear main seal was "wet". So he advised against it. It was a great looking truck though.

Anyway, still searching...

Thanks for all the input guys.

Had this someone seen a British car before? They all leak from somewhere. If it was just wet, and not marking the pavement, it's a good one. ;-)

They all drip at some point. I wouldn't let that deter you. Let the price deter you

Amen to that. When they stop dripping they need to be refilled.
