I got this defender because of the V8 engine in this model. I am told that it is rare to have an original petrol V8 from the 1980s. Almost all defenders here in the US from this timeframe (80's) in the US are low horsepower diesel. I scooped it up because of this V8 engine as it more closely...
The fuel gauge on my 1988 ROW D90 is not working. With a full tank, when i put the key in accessory mode, the fuel needle moves a little bit showing there is about a 1/4 tank. When driving it shows it is dead empty, every time.
Any troubleshooting advice?
Need to replace these...after repairing my bulkhead...there were no gaskets actually. Are these made of paper or rubber? Something I could make if I knew the material. Seems a bit high paying 8 bucks for these from some of the vendors I see
I was hoping I could get some advise on the condition on my head and if I should have it decked. It doesn't look to be warped at all when using the feeler gauges and thank god there are no cracks in between the valves. But, there are some scratches, some cracks in the hot spots and...
For those of you who have installed the TurboTechnics VNT turbo on a 200tdi Defender, should it be metal to metal where the downpipe mates to the turbo housing or is there need for a gasket or compound here? The kit didn’t come with a gasket and there’s no mention of one in the instructions.

I would like ask for some suggestion and experience. I just recently replaced the P Gasket on my 300 Tdi. It was an ordeal getting the water pump casing off the block since a bolt snapped and the rest was frozen in the old casing. I had to cut the bolt which them ruined the P gasket...

Going to replace the gas tank soon on my NAS 110 and read that it’s recommnded to replace the crappy steel skid stick skid with an Alloy one from SHP but don’t think they make it. Anyone know where I can get one to replace mine? Thanks in advance, Eddie
I'm just wondering, who has a gas 2.5l Defender? I've read about how they have crap power and get low 20's/high teens on mpg. I'm searching for a 110 and really want a TD of course.
If you came across a good deal on a nice 110 but it was gas would you grab it or keep looking? What are...
