New to Rovers. Probably a really stupid question...


Have a 1984 Land Rover 110. Noticed that most part-houses only list "Defenders" as an option when searching for parts. Are the parts for say, a 1984 LR 110 and a 1987 Defender pretty much the same, or should I be looking for Series parts? Is there a definitive parts catalog out there that can help me narrow down what I need based on my, relatively unique, model name (LR 110 vs. Defender 110)?


For example, I'm trying to buy a differential gasket. The one they show on Paddock under "Defender Rear Axle up to KAXXXXXX" is round, but mine is not. I see a Salisbury gasket on the website that looks like mine; however, there is no way to be sure. I think my VIN is AAXXXXX? I assume that's what they are referencing to narrow down parts, and that I am looking in the right section?


Thanks for you help.

Most use "Defender" pretty liberally to mean all Land Rovers 90s and 110s, even though they weren't officially named "Defender" until 1990. As for the parts, it's hard to say really because not all Landies are the same.

I use the following link for researching parts.

Allbrit MG ROVER & Land Rover Ersatzteilkatalog

Hopefully it is of some use to you.

I had the same issue with my gasket for the rear axle. I ordered the round one from Paddock then realised that I should have ordered the Salisbury one.

Thanks. That's a good site. Still only goes back to Defender '87, but I guess I'll just have to be really careful when ordering. It's disappointing that companies only go back to 87. Makes part ordering for an '84 LR 110 a little risky.

This is the book you guys are looking for:

http://www.amazon.com/Rover-Parts-C...TF8&qid=1439741576&sr=8-1&keywords=rtc+9863CE

It's a must-have for anyone with a stock early 80s 110. I'm sure it can be found in electronic format somewhere on the web, but I prefer books. As has been mentioned, there are a lot of Series parts in these early trucks, especially the 83 and 84 models.

I'll second Trevor at Rovahfarm for parts! If he doesn't have it on his website, he can usually get it for you. I've also had excellent service from Britcar in the UK when searching for oddball early parts that nobody else has.

Cheers,

Mike

How about parts for an 86' ex mod 110. Not sure what the production date is. I see a lot about august 1986 . Having a hard time finding parts.

Is there any info about the ex mods on the internet? Have done may searches but very little out there.

I have the parts catalog covering 110's up to August 1986, P/N RTC9863CE. It is still available (though likely from UK) for about $45 plus shipping. Here is one link Parts Catalogue Land Rover 110 up to August 1986

Your 110 probably has the Salisbury rear axle. The gasket needed is RTC1139.
