Re: Replacement brake servo

What are folks doing for brake servos? Suffice to say AEU1043 is not leaping out of the internet at me. Will a Type 50 STC2878 (early 90/110) with the pedal end modified do the trick? Yes, you'd just need to alter the clevis by re using your original. They both have the same rebuild kit too (18g895...

Re: Lack of Power, Help please.

No, just to check the Vacuum to diagnose the smoke.

Going to check the brake servo tomorrow to see if that could be getting sucked in too.

Re: Lack of Power, Help please.

Thank you all for your advice. So finally, I have rebuilt the carbs (full of a sand-like substance) and cleaned (and sealed) the fuel tank. She now starts and has excellent pull while accelerating. However, she now smokes (Grey/white) excessively, slightly more smoke while idling, but with any sort ...

Re: Lack of Power, Help please.

Hi. Thank you for the advice. I'm planning on rebuilding the carbs after sorting out the inside of the tank. Thinking coating it like a motorcycle tank. I've cleaned out the pump too. Not thought about compression, hopefully it didn't make the carb... I have my own tester so will tick that off.

Re: Lack of Power, Help please.

I've now cleaned out the pump and I've changed the filter. The filter looked like this... IMG_20200713_162025 (1).jpg I have the tank off which was full of rust (sadly) and I've started the cleaning process with thinners and a jet wash. I'm going to use soda water and a battery to get the rest out. ...

Re: Lack of Power, Help please.

I've swapped both Silencers today and the issue has carried on. The Land Rover won't even start now - even had to push it in traffic... :? It would start but then immediately cut out at idle or the vacuum went to zero when pressing the accelerator. However, I've pulled the top off the fuel pump and ...

British Leyland Blue and a sticker. No idea why they have painted it.

Re: Wanted - NRC 4361 - Centre Silencer

Second time I've had poor service using them. No reply to my email about getting delivery (rough idea, a week after ordering) and 1 hour on hold today to no avail. So I've cancelled my order. Phoned Famous Four (answered staright away) and it'll be here in 2 days and was cheaper than JC Just won't e...

Re: Lack of Power, Help please.

I had thought about the carb, it is running Strombergs but I have gone down exhaust route thanks to 1275s advice. I tested it without the silencers attached and couldn't replicate the error, once they were back on - boom no power. On another note - who knew a LR could get even louder? Re the air fil...

Re: Wanted - NRC 4361 - Centre Silencer

Yep!

Have ordered one with JC, however, still no email to say when it will arrive (after a week of waiting). :(

Thought it may be quicker to find one, in someones shed.

Re: Lack of Power, Help please.

Thanks 1275.

I had not considered the pipes, without a cat or an EGR what would be the likely culprit?

Lack of Power, Help please.

Hi All (please bear with me), I'm Alex and I bought an Stg1 just before lockdown started in Scotland and drove it back to Hertfordshire in a day where I noticed an issue. In 4th/OD at high RPM, it would slowly start to lose power, however, if I stopped or revved it hard with the clutch in, it would ...
