    Hello, two questions today. I was going to do a compression test this weekend but I cant get it to turn over. It turned over twice then nothing. I looked in the manual to see if there is a starter relay but it just shows that there are three relays behind the fuse panel. One of the relays does...

    Hello Everyone, I am hoping someone can help me out. I recently had a 1987 Land Rover Defender 110 2.5 Liter Diesel pick up truck restored. The starter has now gone. Where can I locate/buy a new complete starter. I just want to swap out the old for new. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Prior to trying to pull out my starter today I read a bunch of stories about how much a PITA the bolts were going to be. In preparation I removed the down pipe from the turbo exhaust and moved the oil supply line for the turbo. As i started this I found that the down pipe seems to not be fully...

    Hey Guys, having some trouble finding the RIGHT starter motor for my car. I have a 1991 D90 200TDI. I ordered one from LDParts in the UK and its about 1 - 1.5 inches longer than the one that was in there and it doesn't fit but they seem to think it should. Anyone have this same issue? Any...

    My starter went out last weekend and I've been waiting all week for my replacement to ship from England... :whistling: When I had a DeLorean, of course the local auto parts stores couldn't look up my car parts (even though DMC-12s were sold in the US!) so I would just tell them that I had a...

    Strange thing - tried to start the 110 and it won’t start. It did start just fine yesterday. When we turn over the key the truck beeps twice. Wondering if this has happened to anyone and whether they can help me diagnose it.

    My 2.5NA has started an intermittent problem. I turn the key to start and the starter solenoid goes "click" and nothing turns. Sometimes after 2 or 3 clicks the starter engages and the engine starts. Sometimes I need to click many times. The last time I gave up after 40 or 50 clicks, I push...

    I'm in the Air Force and the government has decided to move me to Florida. As such, there are some things I don't want to ship. They need to go to a good home in the next two weeks or they are gone forever. First up is a full set of seats (fronts w/middle and 2 rear side benches) from my 88...

    Calling all engine bay noise, clicking, thudding, grinding, whining and thundering sound experts! Prior to the vehicle being parked for a month or two, the engine ran flawlessly without any suspicious noise. Nothing in the engine bay seemed to have leaked, all levels were normal. So...

    70 IIA petrol, also with pushbutton, looks like the starter solenoid gave up the ghost. These things can't be unique, is there a recommended over the counter replacement or certain specs I can shop for at the local parts store? thanks

    When i turn the ignition key to my '86 2.5L diesel, the starter motor engages the flywheel momentarily, and then retracts before starting the engine. If I keep the key turned, the starter motor makes a whirring noise. There is no grinding. If I let go of the key, everything turns of, as it...
