Re: Getting it Running

I understand your logic but the usual practise is to get it running first, then perform the service. Having dealt with multiple cars from storage in the past few months, skipping the fuel tank altogether can be well worth while. Find a fuel tank from a lawn mower etc. and hang from the bonnet with f...

Re: Getting it Running

I assume you mean it doesn't run, therefore fuel and spark as with anything.

Does it turn over, is the fuel pump ticking, is there fresh petrol in the tank...

Re: Swivels

Standard series swivels don't accept ANY CV joints without grinding away hub material.

110 CV joints don't fit in 109V8s because the circlip grove is in a different position.

Some people sell modified 110 CVs with a newly cut circlip groove that fits 109V8 but no longer suits 110.

Re: Swivels

I think you will find the CV they sell is a special, based on 110. The reason most 109 V8 owners don't use 110 CV joints is because they don't fit. Otherwise we'd all be having a party and fitting new, genuine CVs. 110 and later have a five bolt drive flange. Earlier vehicles are six bolt. During De...

Re: Swivels

Still not sure where you're going?

The 110 CV doesn't fit without being modified. The circlip groove is in a different place to the 109V8.

Re: Swivels

What outer drive shaft?

The CV plugs in to the drive flange. It's not an early Range-Rover where the drive flange has a short stub axle that pushes in to the CV.

Re: Wanted - NRC 4361 - Centre Silencer

Just google the part number.
Most of the major suppliers show a listing.

Re: Lack of Power, Help please.

Collapsed baffles. As the factory fit is flange joints they are a straight forward disconnect. Dealt with an F last week with a blocked cat. Pressure at the tail pipes seemed appropriate but power was down and the catalyst is a straight forward removal to inspect. However neither factory silencer fo...

Re: Renovation of a 1982 109 V8 ute

I certify vehicle modifications. Basic owner fail point - doing the work first then looking for some one to sign off on it. Then choking about rework. Getting someone else to do the work means nothing. Write a build plan and have the build plan assessed by the end certifier before commencing work. H...

Re: Renovation of a 1982 109 V8 ute

Without an aftermarket ECU and custom programme, the power output will exceed the vehicle's abilities and won't pass modification approval or annual inspection requirements. However the swap is straightforward. If you have the Range-Rover plenum there may be a bonnet clearance issue. Wiring has to b...
