  1. Wheel bearings?? Diff? or ???

    Range Rover Classic
    My original thought was wheel bearings and after some internet sleuthing, I can't figure it out. 1989 Rover Classic I am feeling some grinding in my rear axle. There is some clunks every now and then with the noise. I had my girlfriend slowly drive as I walked next to it and the only way I can...
  2. rod bearings

    Range Rover Classic
    Having trouble torquing down the connecting rods after installing rod bearings. After torquing down pistons 1 & 2, I'm finding the crank impossible to spin, which is required to torque the other rods down. I've broken 2 breaker bars attempting its rotation. Once both con rod pistons are...
  3. stuck main bearings

    Range Rover Classic
    Having trouble removing the top main bearings. Crank in place and caps have been removed. Spinning the crank doesn't move them at all. I've been able to push with a stiff plastic the bearing bout a 1/4" but no further. Has anyone tried heating theirs? Or have a suggestion? Thanks.
  4. RR HSE 2006 has noise coming from front of engine.

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    A noise is coming from the front of the engine... Its louder than it normally sounds. At idle and at higher speeds. I recorded the noise and compared it with other Users who posted to youtube and claimed it was their alternator bearings... However I removed the alternator, spun it... feels...
  5. Connecting Rod Bearings

    Range Rover Classic
    1995 Classic with 3.9L engine with 185k miles I've removed my pistons to install new rings and some of the bearing shells are worn and showing copper. Can I just order a new standard set and replace them (machining the crank at this point is not feasible for me)?
  6. Question about small ball bearings.

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello everyone, I had 2 front airbags blow and a rear one that had a slow leak. So I did the Strutmasters coil conversion, because I could do it myself with my limited space and tools, and it was FAR cheaper of a fix. The install went good, but while we were working on the front passenger...

  8. Timken Wheel Bearings

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    These seem reasonably priced. Has anyone used the before? Are they reliable? Or am I better off going OEM? I would like to replace all 4 as they are original and I have 130K miles. Thank You
  9. Ball bearings?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hi Guys, I can hear a faint humming noise coming from my front end for the past week. It almost sounds like my tires need to be replaced, but they are fairly new and in good shape. The sound goes away at higher speeds. I have almost 100k miles. Could this be a warning sign that I will need new...
  10. Hub bearings

    Range Rover Classic
    Are the front and rear wheel hub bearings the same parts on a 1990? It appears to be, just want to double check before ordering parts. Need to replace all four corners.
  11. Weird noises from a 4.6L, Bad Bearings?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I just got the oil pan back on, filled it with oil, and this thing sounds weird. Definately something rotating badly. I'm going to pull the belt just to be sure though. What's your opinion. Youtube might still be turning the video. sorry for it being sideways.

  14. Steering box needle bearings

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi there - I'm rebuilding the steering box on my '95 RRC and when I disassembled it I found the needle bearings on the output shaft had started to disintegrate. Does anyone have a part number for those bearings? Looks like they are 1-1/4" ID, 1-1/2" OD and maybe 1-3/16" wide (I haven't...

  17. front bearings question..:)

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    My 2007 RR supercharged needs new front bearings..that grinding noise is getting louder and bothersome...: I was told to replace the bearings ONLY and not the all hub assembly to fix the problem...is this a good idea? How much time in labor does it require?? Thanks:)
  18. Wheel Bearings

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I'm pretty sure I'm cursed when it comes to wheel bearings. The upside is I have become an expert at diagnosing wheel bearing noise and my latest indicates I have a bad w/b somewhere in the front. So, just to be proactive I think I'll change both sides. Surprisingly, the OE RRS wheel bearing...
  19. Thrust bearings

    General Chatter
    Has anyone used 95 classic model thrust bearings on the newer model engines which do not have the full circle thrust bearing? I noticed the classic model engine uses thrust bearings that wrap completely around. I see a lot of issues with this bearing going bad, especially in the discovery model...
  20. Changing wheel bearings and diffs - conclusions?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Front or rear diff whining? Hi All, Some advice please. I'm on the home run with the transmission, just having fitted a new transfer box. Now, how can I tell which diff is whining? (only under power). Is there a way of doing this without removing a prop shaft? Cheers.
