Thanks Oakseywick..
Today I finally cured a vibration/whumping noise I had at 45mph ish and a shudder when I changed from third gear by swapping the front prop.. Alan is much smoother now and the hours I spent cutting the rounded nut and bolt off the prop were worth it Cool

since me and my dad repaired mine, things have been miles better too, One of the UJs had bit the dust, just make sure you Greece the other one up too, plus the UJs. Defender 300 TDi 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

Cheers.. will do.. it came greased but I shall have a go at putting some more in.. I bought a car creeper yesterday to make it easier to slide underneath and save my head from getting a flat spot on the back from the concrete so I shall give that its maiden voyage later.. some of us don't have the luxury of our own car lift Wink
At the moment the bumper is off and in the kitchen, it's had a rub down and a couple of coats of primer.. hopefully get it painted, Dinitrolled inside and back on today.

Got the bumper back on and fixed with new stainless bolts and washers to replace the ugly turning rusty things that were on.. I decided on black again for the time being.....

Thanks...
Be careful what you buy bumper wise.. I think my bumper was a new one when the landy was rebuilt but when I took it off it was starting to rust inside... I've given it a good rub down and a coat of Dinitrol on the inside.

Today I am braving the cold and fitting some freshly painted headlight surrounds and some Wipac crystals I bought a while ago . I installed the Landreiziger loom and new light switch a while ago..
Just done the nearside...



this is the the painted one compared to the faded one I took off:





Just need to do the other one then check my Headlight alignment... 1993 200Tdi Defender 90

well neat that is! I was going to buy the loom too, but insurances and mots have come around very quickly Shocked I am not to sure what to expect with the landy, I think it may have had a dodgy MOT, A few things that were failures were not corrected. One is the seatbelt that is on order, that was picked up on the MOT, only thing that was corrected as the suspensiont, even then we had to renew that too. Defender 300 TDi 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

I'm sure with all the time spent and work you've done on your 90 you won't have any trouble with the MOT.. You got me thinking about one of my seatbelt though as it is looking a bit tatty...
I've just taken this off:



I've replaced it with a through pipe, kept the back box though. Im going to go for a test drive shortly... 1993 200Tdi Defender 90

If its looking rather tatty then id replace it before it goes in for its mot, they may pick up on that, but I am surprised to hear that yours has a tatty seat belt, with it been rebuilt.
I found that doing a way with the cats on diesels really do choke them, I have heard that doing away with silencers and back boxes on dervs opens them up, but they are noisy. Some used to do away with the back box and leave the silencer in place.
My 306 is like the setup you have just done now, no silencer ( I think) straight from the turbo to the back box, The car sounds quite throaty and there is a little bit of increase too power wise. Defender 300 TDi 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back

I think a lot of things interior wise were just transferred over in the rebuild, not everything is new and it's the centre seat lap belt that needs changing.. so it should only be a quick job and they are cheap which is a bonus! I've replaced a lot of interior stuff myself, reupholstered the seats, lined out the back, replaced the flooring, added rear headlining etc.. Just to get it how I wanted it..

I have been for a short test drive... I can't say if it is noisier than before but it does sound different but not in a bad way, as for performance... I wasn't expecting any as it is a 200tdi Wink The weight reduction might help as it is lighter......


@Jay Boy, thank you... I'm lucky I work shifts so get quite a few days off at a time and if I'm off weekdays I get to do some stuff on it. 1993 200Tdi Defender 90

My dads is a 200 TDI and its quite pokey mind, I think it might be a little bit more pokey than my 300 TDI, Also what I found to make Diesels more lively is decent diesel. Supermarket stuff we found just doesn't last at all, and made performance a little weak. We had both 306 phase1 and a phase 1 406, both had mechanical pumps at the time.
My dad started to save 40 quid a month by switching from supermarket diesel to the shell/BP. My 306 at the time used to smoke really bad at start up, again since I switched too, that all stopped. I know a people say supermarket stuff is the same, but I think they do water it down a little and I don't think their stations are serviced at all. The store I used to work for certainly didn't service theirs! Defender 300 TDi 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back
