    Is this swivel ball reusable?

    The pitting on the inside doesn't matter. The outside pitting looks pretty light, so I would use it. You definitely do not want aftermarket swivel balls as they fail catastrophically from normal road use.

    2017 Discovery diesel known issues.

    Honestly, most people don't even know they are leaking. The leaks aren't that bad, but they definitely do leak.

    2017 Discovery diesel known issues.

    The only really common problem that has nothing to do with driving style is the cam seals leak in the front. They are actually really easy to do, but you do have to pull the timing belt. Air leaks in the intake and exhaust can cause all sorts of issues like a clogged DPF or DEF quality warnings.

    2020 Defender

    I think it has more to do with driving style than anything. There are plenty of people who just can't accept that they are going to make it up a certain obstacle and are always bashing their trucks. Oddly that always seems to be guys in black d2 s with 35's... I've wheeled my D90 all over the...

    D2 viscous fan clutch “upgrade”

    Could the part have been packaged wrong?

    2020 Defender

    Why not? Unless you totally bash it, you aren’t going to suffer much loss in value.

    The never-ending Rack Thread

    I figured out what Kyle spent all of that rack money on.

    2020 Defender

    Same. The new Range Rover is probably just as capable as the Pretender, and I'm sure its a lot nicer.

    Should we change the title of this thread to Twenty Years?

    LR 3/4 weak points

    The FPDM wasn't the problem on his, he had a wiring problem. I've only replaced one that I can recall and that was because JLR engineering told me to replace that and the low pressure fuel pump (intermittent fault). Any part can fail, but the FPDM is a very rare item to fail. I'd be more...

    Modifying a D1 SD rack to fit a D90?

    If you have the fabrication skills to make a D1 SD rack look even halfway decent on a D90, then you could build your own rack. FYI, there is a guy that sells knock off SD Defender racks on eBay and they look pretty okay. Not perfect, but much better than the knock off Discovery SD racks.

    Could it really be the CPK AGAIN?!?!?!

    The next most likely thing is the fuse box under the steering column. I did a post on NAS-ROW on how to diagnose this. Basically the ignition coils are losing power when cranking. There is a connector near the expansion tank that is accessible to check there. IIRC, it will still have power until...

    Ordering and Installing Top Hat Liners for 4.6 Bosch Engines

    You can definitely run 4.0 pistons with 4.6 crank/rods. I had D&D do my block with flanged liners.

    Apparently, Buying a Car is Difficult...

    Salesmen are horrible at understanding the feature of cars in my experience. Now we have encore specialists that come to your house a week or two after you bought the car to help show you how everything works and answer any questions you have about the vehicle.

    Swapping brake lines, and one will not come loose.

    You could also just get a used hard line from Will if you damage it.

    Apparently, Buying a Car is Difficult...

    I never understand why places do that. When I bought my wife's Rolex I emailed the place and told them which one I wanted. The guy immediately mailed me back saying he could do it $600 cheaper. I don't read into it much and appreciate the discount, but I didn't even consider that a discount was...

    Apparently, Buying a Car is Difficult...

    Most car dealerships operate using the same mentality as people who live pay check to pay check. If Kennith orders a car today, it won't be here this month, so it does them no good.
