    Underpowered Diesel and Injector Pump Queries

    Hello Series 2a First Drive After Clutch Swap Far too long after the clutch pedal went solid in my Series 2a back in December, I finally got the interior reinstalled and was able to verify if the new clutch pressure plate would solve all my problems, or if I'd need to pull it all back out...

    Series 2a Diesel Won't Start

    Hello, I've been scratching my head over this for a week or so now. I recently got a 1969 Series 2a 109 Station Wagon, she needs plenty of work to get back to good condition but the chassis is good and most of the bodywork is in decent condition. It was a diesel from the factory, but at some...

    Hi there, I've just become the proud owner of a 1983 SIII diesel (see photo) - it's made it's way back from up north to Jersey (Channel Islands) where I'm waiting for it to be inspected and registered locally. It was rebuilt about 2 years ago and had a reconditioned diesel 2.5 engine...

    General Ring gear

    I wonder if anyone can help or refer me to someone who can. I have a 1986 FX4 London cab, 2.5litre diesel automatic Rover. It needs a new or refurbished ring gear. The flexplate in the middle has broken. The teeth of the gear are fine.

    SIII Dash Panel and Gauges Refurb

    A while back, I got a bug to see if I could install LEDs in the dash panel. Today, I took the panel off and found some degradation and rust, so I sand blasted the bits, blacked out the bezels and generally cleaned up some. Also used some vinyl dye on the rubber and plastic parts. Anyone have...

    Running out of Fuel Early

    I can only ever draw 45litres of diesel out of my tank (on a 200tdi) before it sputters and "runs out of fuel", leaving 15 litres behind in the tank. I suspected a hole in the fuel supply pipe in the tank... so I tried blowing down the fuel pipe and bubbles only came out of the bottom of the...

    Fuel duty rise

    Nice to see that the Chancellor has done (another) u-turn on the proposed August fuel duty increase. I am surprised though, that despite a threatened vote in the House, the Government didn't try to brave it out, particularly since the pump price has dropped significantly recently (£1.27 near me...

    2.5 diesel: Performance and diesel leak

    Last winter I bought a 2000m.y 2.5 dHSE after my 1996m.y. 4.0 petrol 'passed on'. I was expecting the performance to be sluggish but after a couple of days I realised the performance was glacial - almost dangerous from cold. Also a diesel patch appeared on the drive and there was the aroma of...

    P38 Diesel Performance Chips

    Hi - I'm now the proud owner of a 2000my Range Rover dHSE. I bought it with eyes wide open about the less than sparkling performance from the 136bhp 2.5 diesel. Now I'm thinking about a performance enhancer. I've read than the PowerBox2 from Rimmer Bros gets good reviews. Anybody out there...

    HOT START problem ('04 TD6 vogue)

    Hi folks, My rangey has developed a hot starting problem. From cold it starts fine, no problems at all. If I run it up to temperature, turn it off and then leave it for a few minutes it cranks for ages before reluctantly drifting into a lazy idle, (for example stopping for fuel or popping to...

    Exact cc of 5MB diesel

    I need to provide DVLA with the size of the engine that was fitted to my S3 (before I bought it). They have warned me that it has to be exact. The engine number shows it to be the five main-bearing diesel, but I can't find anywhere that gives the precise cc. Can anyone help?
