    Portable Air

    The 88P has 4.5 stars on Amazon. I was wondering if anyone would point out this brand. Seems a good price if it works without breaking, even if it is slow.

    Portable Air

    Other than the obvious ARB unit, or the like in price, what portable compressors have you had good luck with?

    Sedimenter location

    I put mine in cavity under passenger seat. Outside wall of tool box.

    SD L255 Internal Roll Cage

    Yes. Mine is in. The key to making it work right is to pre-position multiple times till you know you’ve got the layout right and squared. The drilling sucks, but isn’t as bad as you might first think. An angle air drill might work better than what I had. I also used ratchet straps to put...

    Made in USA 12V diesel pumps

    I have not had the trouble since. I am worried that the reason it died was because it was getting low on fuel and sucked up some air when going down the hill. If this is the case, I’m not sure how to fix it since there was about 2 gallons of fuel left, and the fuel light had not come on yet. I...

    Questions about Santanas

    Yep, Massif, a rebadged (and upgraded) Santana PS10. It is too bad we can't get more of the good engines that others have put in these trucks.

    Questions about Santanas

    Lets be honest, there really is a true heritage between Santana and Rover. Santana is to Rover what Ishmael is to Isaac.... maybe? So although they do get very different in the late '80s, you can at least still see the comparisons, even if the bolts don't all go in the same holes. Most British...

    Questions about Santanas

    All I know is I'm hoping Santana's New Defender will be better than what we are seeing from JLR. I mean, maybe they'll go all out and start using coil springs by 2020. Are CKD kits legal for businesses at least? And Spanish AC units must be better than what they make in the UK.

    Sightings

    I guess these were only made in Brazil. Not sure, but I think it must be one of the contractors working here.

    1989 Defender Santana For Sale $23500, OBO

    No matter what y'all decide, this thread is reminding me that I have always wondered about the "real" differences between the two in the late '80s and early '90s versions. Has anyone done a comparison online that would be fun to look at? When I was in the UK a few years ago, I was disappointed...

    SD L255 Internal Roll Cage

    Not sure. The forward half, certainly, but whether it integrates exactly with the forward part of the internal cage, I cannot answer. Probably would need to email them.

    Made in USA 12V diesel pumps

    So.... It seems as if pressure was lost sitting overnight. But there are no leaks that I can detect. I turned the key, heard the pump, but the truck took a few turns to start. Seemed normal, but then died at the bottom of my hill about 1/2 a mile from the house. Started up again, but I could not...

    Made in USA 12V diesel pumps

    Here's what I ended up with. I really had just forgotten that I bought this Airtex pump a while back, and also forgot that I had previously figured out how I was going to do the wiring till it just dawned on me while I was at work today. This is a V8 harness, which means, it has a factory...

    The LED headlight thread

    I'm still tempted to get some replacement bulbs, if only for the lower amp draw. However, the head lights on my Series truck are Sylvania, and they are a very nice, neutral white. The Defender headlights are pretty bright, but they are very yellow compared to what I have on the Series. A friend...

    1989 Defender Santana For Sale $23500, OBO

    Pretty good looking Santana. I usually don't like them, but just change to a Rover roof and rear door and you're pretty much a match.

    Where Is This Leak?

    BTW, the vacuum pump is leaking out the top cover, not the gasket on the block. I've heard tell of people drilling out the rivets, and replacing with new gasket (right stuff) and then using small bolts to really close it tight. Anyone done this? I think this is where I will start because it is...

    Where Is This Leak?

    I’m not 100% sure which seals you are referring to because I’m not schooled enough yet. I know that before I had the engine installed the front and rear main seals, I think the t-seals, and the oil pan gasket were all changed. If this is something that happens every 10k miles, I can’t keep the...

    Made in USA 12V diesel pumps

    Your trucks are all so clean it makes me question my humanity. I’m still cleaning my truck after getting 6 inches of water in the cab in December.

    Made in USA 12V diesel pumps

    I'm looking to mount it on the passenger side wheel arch, just behind the expansion tank. I could certainly relay it off the aux fuse box. But I'm looking at the bundle of wires that runs up that side of the bulkhead, and thinking about how many of those go live when the key is turned, and that...

    Made in USA 12V diesel pumps

    My fuel pump was weak. I forgot about it. I just had to get a tow back home. So, I already have a replacement electric pump that I could probably put in this evening (a rare day when I was actually going to use some free time to be outside for a while! But Rover had other plans....). But my...
