1999 Land Rover defender TD5 110. Rego due 7 Oct 2014. I've owned her from about 330,000 kms. We have travelled many happy (and noisy) miles together seeing the Cape, Vic High Country, Sydney - Adelaide - Melbourne - Sydney. Make no bones about it, this old girl was used off-road as she was designed to be. She has battle scares as proof. If looks are not high on your agenda and you are handy with the tools to do a cheap once-over this is your girl.
Engine - ECU remap by Bruce Davis Performance. Engine is strong for its mileage and pulls like a freight train. Like most TD5's she has a tendency to get warm on long hills. Uses about 500ml of coolant to 5,000 kms. I suspect a head gasket but i've been nursing her in that state for 30,000kms and she has not deteriorated in coolant usage or overheating. Serviced every 7,000 kms with all oils changed annually. The main radiator hoses and thermostat were replaced about 10,000 kms ago. Has silicon intercooler hoses. New steering drop arm ball joint.
Drive train - the TFC has a little play in the output shafts as expected for her mileage. According to the mechanic (who has a 300 Tdi) it's normal and not in need of attention. High/Low engages and disengages without sticking. The gearbox is in similar condition to the TFC. The syncros in second are a little tired and are sticky when cold and the oil is aged. The front diff has an Ashcroft ATB, stock CV's and axles. The rear salisbury has been swapped out for the P38 diff from a later model defender (stock axles). In the conversion the rear prop shaft was modified to suit the P38 diff. The front prop shaft has relatively young UJ's. They were replaced about 12,000 kms ago. i replaced the clutch and flywheel about 20,000 kms ago.
Wheels / suspension - 255/85R16's BFG Km2's with about 20 -25% tread. Disco 1 alloys rims. No spare. Rear chassis wheel carrier. Tough Dog 35mm lifted coils. Defender 130 shocks. Otherwise suspension is stock.
Cabin - it's good for its age and mileage. Don't forget that someone had to sit in the truck for 378,000 kms. I laid foil/rubber insulation (like dynamat but the Jaycar version) throughout the cabin for noise and heat. It does the job as best a job as can be expected on a defender. No significant tears or damage to the seats. Driver's seat has a small tear in fabric. The previous owner tore a hole in the roof lining. I installed a Mud console with aftermarket (digital) radio. The carling switches are not connected to anything because i removed the accessories like the driving lights and LED light bar. The rear camp light works but is playing up since i rewired the console. An hour of tracing the wires will sort it out. I suspect it's not earthed after I removed the other accessories.
Exterior - I had an incident a few years back when I put her on her side. You will see panel damage on the passenger side. The passenger front door is out of true. It closes and is sealed just not perfect. The roof at the rear was pushed over so the roof is out of true. Rear door does not foul.
Feel free to call to ask Q's and arrange inspection. 0404 two one one four eight zero. It is priced according to her age and condition. Will entertain reasonable offers.
