    Fuel line.. holes

    Today I went to fetch something in the Defender having not run it for a few days and after 30seconds or so - before I even got out the yard - it shuddered to a halt. Managed to start it several times but anything more than idling and it would just stop. Changed the fuel filter this evening but...

    300 TDi fuel shut off solenoid. Genuine or aftermarket.

    The fuel shut off solenoid (RTC6702) is causing starting problems. Taking several key cycles to operate when the car has stood for a few days. Works fine when used every day. There is the usual array of ****part, Bearmach, Allmakes etc for £5 to £7 as well as a Bosch OEM one for £100. Anyone...

    Discovery 2 Filler Flap Spring! Help Please :)

    Hi there, Does anyone know where I can get a spring for a Disco 2 filler flap? Or a part number? Just bought her and when I tried to fill up, the lock activates from the dashboard, but in the absence of a spring, it won't spring open, so it's a two person job! Thanks and happy to be a part of...

    Fuel pump / lift pump rebuild kit. All the bits are different!

    I'm sure this will have been covered before but the (genuine parts) rebuild kit for the lift pump is totally different to the existing pump. It is on a 1974 2 1/4 petrol. MoT tester said the fuel pump was leaking. Rebuild kit from Paddocks is genuine part no. AEU 2760. As the picture shows...

    Is my fuel regulator dead and buried?

    If I turn the ignition to Pos II and the fuel pump runs... Should you get fuel returning from the rail to the tank via the regulator with engine off???? Reason I'm asking is that I might have drank so many tonight that I have discovered the meaning of life, but more importantly, a reason for my...

    AUX fender tank measurements?

    Hello all, I know there are a number of vendors who produce aux tanks that fit into both rear fender of the Defender 90 and 110. I'm sure they are a great value to many, but I would like to manufacture my own. I'm sure they will be far from perfect, but a whole lot cheaper. Problem is I don't...

    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 filler neck mismatch

    Anyone recognise the fuel filler neck I have on my IIA ? The fuel filler tube doesn't fit in it, but will fit in upsidedown. Is it from a defender or an earlier one? - So the tube does not match the filler, but can anyone find a photo or part number that will? Many thanks. Richie.

Yesterday however during a long distance drive she progressively got worse and then togehter with a...

    Fuel filling

    Does anyone else have this problem? When I fill the tank (109 SW, 2.25 petrol) I have no idea whether it has reached capacity until petrol starts pouring onto the forecourt from what I assume is a breather on the top of the tank. It's a pretty good indicator that the tank is full, but I resent...

    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...
