Re: Defender Transfer case problems?

I took Red's advice, it appears something is busted on the short side cuz the diff gears turn fine when I spin the left wheel but nothing when I turn the right.

Bugger... Jeremy just brought in a set of shafts and the short side is already spoken for.... just my luck lol

Re: Defender Transfer case problems?

You guys are right. I didn't have a spare set of eyes so I put my phone under the truck with the camera rolling. Front shaft is spinning so it's something up front.... no noise or trouble cornering just a consistent screeching grinding noise while driving... I'm guessing that means the ten spline en...

Re: Any interest in a mobile Mechanic?

Arcades I'll ask him but I think electrical is a full time trade in itself I never trust it to mechanics they hate doing it and it shows... I always do my own it takes me ages but it gets done

He's been around the block and can do anything even custom work. Mostly did industrial stuff in the oil patch. Anyways he's living on t...

Re: Defender Transfer case problems?

OK so pick a part in Chilliwack has a 1995 Range Rover and a 1998 Disco... Now got to find out if the transfer case is compatible...

Are the front cv shafts from other models compatible with defenders? Maybe I should pick up some trail spares


I've got a 1992 110

Defender Transfer case problems?

OK so I'm having an issue where I can only drive my 110 with the diff lock engaged. When I shift the transfer case to open diff lock I can feel it engage but when I step on the gas.... nothing just revs the engine. I was thinking maybe I broke an axle because gear oil was leaking pretty heavy from t...

False Creek!

Heads up neighbour in the dark green 110, they are getting ornery over their precious fireworks parking, they left a note saying they are gonna tow you because your annual pass is out of date... Typical FW bs.


Hope you get this or someone here can relay it!

Electronic fuel shutoff?? On 2.5 diesel?? Convert to manual?

My diesel benz purrs like a kitten with absolutely no electrical system needed... can I convert the defender to manual fuel cut-off?

Does it matter? I stopped by Princess Auto the other day to grab a rivet gun and realized there are different types and sizes. Does anyone know what size/style are used on defender panels?

Re: Metric socket Sizes For Defender and Discovery

Good info! Just what I was looking for!

So does anyone know specifically what sizes to carry?

For instance on my old truck I only had to carry 8,10,12,14,17,19,24,27,35 mm

Everything else was not needed

Metric socket Sizes For Defender and Discovery

Hi I'm new to Land Rovers, but not new to overlanding! Out in the Boones on long trips space is at a minimum and the truck is usually packed to the hilt for gear. So I like to pack as many specialty tools as possible and as few redundant tools/unnecessary tools as possible. I HATE metric SAE combo k...
