    Hi everyone, A few weeks ago, I purchased a 1992 5-door 110 200TDI with RHD with nearly 190k miles. I have always loved defender's and thought it would be a fun thing to fix up, I am quite competent with upholstery and interior work, so I will still do the interior. I think I jumped WAY too...

    Hi, I'm selling a RHD Defender 110 hardtop, 119,711 miles, ex-MoD. It was imported from the UK in February this year, and has been registered and titled by the Florida DHSMV and VIN checked. It's completely stock, no modifications whatsoever, and has even been confirmed by Land Rover's historic...

    Hello all, I have a 300tdi that had been, at some point in the past, redone by Turner. It appears that bearings were replaced in the US. When I got the engine it knocked like hell. Dropped the oil pan and found a thrust washer in the pan. The other was not to be found. The best guess at this...

    Hey Guys, Need some advice on possible next steps for an engine issue. It's a 19J 2.5TD which I've owned for a year or so. The engine smoked badly ( gray smoke) ever since I've owned it. My initial hunch was that it was burning oil due to it being a tired engine and just needed new rings and...

    Defender Peeps, Thank you for all the advice thus far. I'll be posting photos soon of my progress on the build in the appropriate forum topic. I couldn't find any info on whether or not Britpart wheels are okay. Their sawtooths are super cheap and I wonder if they even make them. Thoughts...

    I know this is a RRC question, but I've become comfortable on this forum over the years. Can I get thoughts on the best (and not over the top expensive) manuals to use for minor fixes and various maintenance projects on a 95 RRC (taking dashboard apart to replace bulbs, switches, and what...

    Need to get the red dirt out of the blower assembly before my rebuild starts. Looking for advice on the best way to take it apart for cleaning. Shop diagrams look pretty straight forward but want to be safe before I start to dismantle it.

    The wheel hub bearings on my front axle are now gone and need to be replaced. Everything but the pads seems to be original 1988 parts. Therefore, while I'm at it I will be also installing: New calipers New rotors and pads New hubs (to save me a trouble of trying to remove old rusty ones from...

    I don't own a Defender 90 yet but currently looking for one. The main issue is I'm located in Vancouver, Canada and there aren't many Defenders around here. As such I'm looking at importing one from the UK (or elsewhere in Europe). I'm looking for some advice on the best way to find one. What...

    So I recently bought this 1960 Series II truck that was built new and delivered to the US as for domestic consumption. I am new to this whole Landy thing so please cut me some slack...I know there are some initials for this. I bought this for a significant project that I have planned but decided...

    I'm restoring the drums, hubs, and drive flanges on my early 110. The hubs are raw metal and the flange is only partially painted (exposed surface). My questions are: 1) Should I paint the inside of the drum (minus the braking surface) to prevent rust? 2) Should I paint the whole hub for...
