    I have a 1986 Tithonus. For the last week I have had trouble with the first cold start of the day. The engine cranks and fires briefly, but won't keep running. If I give it gas, it will Rev up and then suddenly cut off. After about ten or twelve cycles of this it will keep running as I Rev...

    Hi everyone - I am trying to help my brother in law who has a 1995 Defender 90. After a battery fail, it will not start. Verified spark and no fuel pressure before filter. Checking as much as I can with available schematics, I believe we have an issue with a fuse, relay or inertia switch or...

    A noob and less mechanically inclined member here. I took the truck out yesterday and it fired right up but I smelled gas near the ignition. Let the truck sit for 1 day and it would not turn-over. Sounded promising but never quite caught. Charged the battery over-night since it got cold and...

    I have just completed preparing my Discovery 200Tdi to replace my 2.5TD. I would like to test the engine before installing it in the truck. Besides the 12V to the starter and the glow plug, and the cutoff wire are there any other electrical connections I need? I need to feed it fuel and...

    So I am in the final stages of my Disco 200Tdi swap into my ex-mod 90. After getting most of the kinks worked out I started the engine to get some motivation to finish. It has been a slow process to put it mildly. So after replacing a bad lift pump the engine fired up but runs at full rev. It...
