    I'm having trouble with the brakes on an ‘86 Land Rover Ninety, and it’s starting to drive me crazy!! First, let me explain about the vehicle itself. Although it’s an early Ninety, it’s just had the back axle off a Disco 1 fitted, so it’s got discs all round. The rear calipers, discs, pipework...

    I'm at the point I just want to burn the D90 and forget about it.... Did the clutch on my 300tdi with an r380, all was going well up to trying to connect the transmission back up to the engine... I cannot get it to go all the way home, I get a few studs to go in, the bottom was tighter than...

    OK, so I've worked on this issue for over 10 hours, and have not got anywhere with it. Put 300Tdi and R380 into 1988 110. The old wiring harness is being used for simplicity, for compatibility with rest of truck. In my mind, before putting the dash back together and all the body pieces back...

    I own a Defender 90 1990, and when I lift the gas pedal, let's say to change gears, the vehicle steers right suddenly - and dangerously when on the highway! Any clues? tks

    I've tried two shops and neither can balance my sawtooth wheels..all four weels are asking for too much weight. The wheels are supposed to be OEM, but it is possible they are not...that being said...I doubt all four wheels are defective! Thoughts? Anyone have a similar problem?

    Just finished with a couple week project of pulling the engine (Defender 3.5L) and gearbox (LT95) in order to replace some leaking seals. While I was at it, I replaced the clutch plate, cover and release bearing. Got it all buttoned back up and went to test drive today. Engine roared to life...

    Hey folks, I have a 1988 110 3.5 V8 (no mods). On startup, with the choke pulled out, the engine revs all the way to 7000 rpm and stays put with no indication of letting down. I had a quick look at the choke spring in front of the carbs and it was stuck so I unstuck it. I also noticed Cable B...

    In my 95 d90 I have been having problems with the idling when stopping at lights, etc. At every stop the rpm's would be all over the place and eventually die out if I didn't keep it going by staying on the gas. I had the idle control valve replaced but now it dies out every time I push the...

    Hey guys, I have a 97 D90 NAS with about 70k miles. It sputtered a few weeks ago, but started on up with some rpms. She sputtered out heading down the road last night. Turns over well and tries to grab, but won't catch. Any pointers on what I should be looking for? Thanks for any...

    There are two parts to this matter: 1. While wrestling with one issue for which I had gotten advice on the forum, a clunking noise coming from the front left wheel that cropped up after my mechanic/friend replaced my rotors, pads, calipers, I followed forum advice and eliminated steering ball...
