Which I’ve had for a few years, now but it’s in desperate need for a gearbox oil and transfer box oil change. for the gearbox I was going to replace what’s in their with mtf94 as from what I’ve read that’s the best stuff.

    Droning noise from rear.

    Just a bit of advice needed. My Freelander has a droning, bearing like noise from the rear. Wasn't too bad when I bought it but getting worse. I have removed the complete propshaft assembly but the noise is still present. Mileage is 174,000 and I have no evidence of the vcu having been changed...

    Wow! 3.54 Diffs - now what?

    Bought some 3.54 diffs from a forum member a couple of weeks ago (Wally - a gentleman and a pleasure to meet). What a difference. Firstly the fuel economy - my weekly commute is about 110 miles from the Fylde to Shropshire, around half of which is on the M6. With the 4.7 diffs I'd be pushing it...

    Differential Housing Differences

    I have 2 spare 4.7:1 diffs that look a little different to what I'm used to in that they have no flat surface on the bottom. Would they be early diffs, Series 2 perhaps? They both have '539708 Rover 8' cast on them but one has an 'F5' on it the other 'F10'.

    Hi there, I have an Ex-Army 1982 Series 3 109. We found some mud the other weekend and I realized that the Diff-Lock light was not lighting up. After working through light bulbs, vacuum tubes I found that the wire that connects to the console light has come off. I can't work out were this...

    Taking apart the diff?

    I am currently restoring my land rover v6 pickup, and I noticed that the diff is leaking something. I think I should take it apart and clean it out or at least see what is inside. However I have not the faintest idea of what it looks like inside or whether I should even be taking it apart:o! if...

    Diff swap options for Series 3

    Hi. I have a 1982 series 3 petrol- i was just wondering what the diff swapping options are. I have heard that you can put range rover/disco/defender/90 diffs in the series 3 rover axle. Is this true? I read somewhere that a rover p6 diff fits in? DOes this improve fuel MPG? I dont want to up...

    Repair Guide Changing A Diff

    After some enthusiastic off roading I lost drive to the front axle, assuming it was just the half shaft I didn't anticipate a large job. How wrong I was. This article assumes you have already removed both half shafts from the axle and drained the oil from the diff. Articles on how to remove...

    Repair Guide Diff Pinion Oil Seal

    Replacing the diff pinion oil seal on a rover axle is fairly straight forward, however removing the old oil seal turned into a bit of a mission for me, which is where having a SII diff became an advantage. First step is to remove the front prop,if you have free wheeling hubs you can disengage...

    Rear Diff
