      This is a good thread. Can anyone suggest a really good land rover forum, more specifically aimed at Disco's?

      Last weekend:






      Then, on the way home, blew a rear axle/ wheel seal. Pulled it into the driveway and replaced the seals, bearings, gaskets, rear discs, rear pads and, while I was there, put in the Ashcrofts HD rear shafts I had sitting on the floor. Got it together, ate dinner and then went to drive home. Didnt make it home:


      Turns out that the rear brake kit rebuild kit with new rotors and Ferrodo pads that you get from Atlantic British are too thick. The rear pads were dragging and actually smoking. I panicked at a light as I saw the smoke pouring out and pulled into a parking lot. Jumped out with the extinguisher ready to do work. Just dumped a little bit of water on the rotors and hubs and it instantly sizzled. Called roadside and got it towed the couple of miles to the shop where theyve installed new thinner rear pads. Note to you D1 owners, the AB kit is too thick.

      Merry Christmas kids!


      Old pic from last year with different tires...but it seemed appropriate.
      Sometime shortly before or after this pic was taken, a sheet of ice slid off the top of the disco under braking and broke off the antenna!

      And speaking of Christmas...here's the present I got for myself.... $500 Range Rover! I've fixed the power steering, brakes, misfire, gas door lock actuator, and now onto the fuel filter. NOT looking forward to crawling in the mud to change that, but it runs smooth, no smoke, and came with ~10years of service records!

      heres mine. its pushing 207k miles now and still runs well. doesnt always start though, i think a couple plug wires/distributor cap are corroded so i need to pick up some new ones. it cranks but just wont turn over sometimes. once it starts though, it feels like nothing could stop it. its fun

      Does anyone know how hard/easy it is to swap out inward facing jump seats to a rear bench in a defender 90?

      Easy. Just be sure to grab the brackets with the seat. We actually retrofitted a D90 seat into a SIIa bugeye we had and kept the jumps as well.

      great deal! That's the kind of fixer upper I'm lookign for the next time around. However, what I get time will have a good motor and not half the normal compression in 6 out of 8 cylinders

      Nice!

      I posted a couple years ago in this thread about my Uncles 1997 Defender 90, well I am now the 2nd owner of this pretty cool truck. Have all the paper work since brand new window sticker and all.

      Number 197 of 300 with 46k miles on her.

      I have 2 kids a 5 year old and 1 year old. I am not sure as I havent checked yet but I am pretty sure there is no passenger side air bag so my 5 year old could sit up front in his booster seat? Not ideal and I would prefer not to do it, so I am looking for a bench now.

      Just picked it up yesterday, wasnt as bad on the 150mile road trip as I thought it would be. Actually it was pretty nice albeit loud

      my buddy got a range rover recently. loved it so much i had to pick up one of my own.

      his: '97 HSE Vitesse edition, 1 of 100 worldwide. previous owner sold it thinking it had a bad transmission, all it needed was a $300 flex plate. he bought it for a $1000.




      i replaced the typical nasty sagging headliner with suede:


      my '97 4.0 SE. also purchased from a fool for $1500. claimed fuel pump was bad. had a clogged fuel filter and was out of gas.

      My dad would say that was caused by dry steering..... meaning turning the wheel while parked and not moving. Hehe

      Loud? But my ac is just having the windows down and the ATs have some noise at speed anyway.

      Mine has been pretty reliable, put on almost 20k on it in the last 18mos. Only thing that has royally pissed me off is a bunch of broken keys. One in the door and one in the ignition tumbler. Key must have been a copy of a copy and they must have been drinking at the factory as my key code isn't tagged to my VIN in the LR computer. So I have feelers out for a new ign key set then I'm gold.

      I changed fluids, new rear brakes and tires and other then that just enjoying it. Enjoying the lack of acceleration, enjoying the horrible gas mileage when it's cold out, enjoying its utter refusal to make it into the parking garage at the airport

      If you're used to older VWs a similar vintage LR won't be too different in the fix it department.

      All of my VW's have been very reliable except a B5 Passat...

      When I say "on the highway", I meant to say how do the ride on the highway?
