    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...

    Caution for those of you with Puma doors. If you have to pull hard to slam the doors you may have an issue. I just noticed this on the 1985 2.5NA that I have been using as my daily driver. Do not know if they are not adjusted properly, or of ratty seals and difficulty closing make a...

    Hello, I'm in the market for a NAS Defender 90. A flood damaged and restored 97 was recently posted on Ebay. I would never consider a flood damaged car for a traditional vehicle, but given the seemingly relative simplicity of Defenders and my limited budget, I'm willing to consider it...

    Hi, So I was in an accident. See this thread: Accident :( - Defender Source After a hard choice I am going to go with Dean at Independent in Bethesda to fix the damage. He gets strong recommendations on this page. Dean will also look over the entire truck, because it is a new vehicle to...

    Are you converting a Defender from RHD to LHD? Are you good with sheet metal? This may be for you. It's off a NAS D90 that was hit in the right front, so it's mangled. I bought a new one instead of messing with this one. Missing the plug, both levers and blower motor. The core leaks too. Hope...

    My wife was rear ended today in our 1986 MoD 90. She is a little sore but should be Okay. She was slowing for a stop sign, shifting from 3rd to 2nd, doing 25mph or less when hit. The offending car was a Fiat 500. (Have a good laugh, I did!) We have one of those inexpensive aluminum cargo...

    Hi all! I was wondering if you could share your opinion on an issue I'm having with a vendor. I'm currently going through the slow and costly process of restoring my old '95 NAS Defender 90. We are doing a ST > SW conversion for the winter months and had to order a new full rear door...

    I have a D90 hardtop (no alpine windows) that is damaged. The top area is badly dented in several places, but the gutters are all straight and the rear panel is in good condition. Not sure if someone can use this to cut apart for a project. Price is free. Pick-up only in San Francisco Bay Area.

    Hello all. This D90 is for sale at an auction house down here & I wanted to get peoples honest opinions on damage, cost, AND possibly if anyone here knew the last owner and maybe they could chime in on damage. Looks like possible frame damage, no? ALSO why in the world is the rear left tire...

    Hi Everyone, I have a ’94 NAS D90 and there is an A/C line that runs from the A/C switch on my dash, behind the plastic fascia, and down to the evaporator unit. This line is damaged/broken open. Apparently from my research this line is a probe that checks temperature and controls the cycling...

    Hi everyone, I need to remove the center console in a '97 SW, and I'm concerned about breaking the bits and pieces, especially considering how rare they are. I've read the instructions in the workshop manual, but the details are a little thin. I can pull the stereo, CD player, and cubby with...
