Re: Bumper wanted

Early 110 uses the late Service III bumper - with crank hole. The actual 110 bumper is no crank hole. Defender changes to painted.
For the four plate mounting system, upper and lower plates are different, incorporating the kink.

Re: Bumper wanted

The earlier bumper has mounting brackets as part of the bumper. The later unit requires the four plates. I do wonder if the book has the numbers/dates around the wrong way.

Re: HCPU Fuel Tank

I wasted money on a BRITPART 599234 some years ago and could never get it to fit. The general format was correct. However the mounting hole sizes and the lack of effort to have the holes in the correct place was dismal. Holes in the reinforcing plate weren't even aligned with the panel they were wel...

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: 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...
