chains

  1. Timing chains etc...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Not a MkIII, but the same Jag 5.0. 2010 LR4 I picked up for a buddy of mine, $4500! It's "noisy" up front, so will just go ahead and do the full set. It had supposedly had them all done in '15 (same owners since '11), but I'm guessing they used the plastic pins still, instead of aluminum. Cost...
  2. AJV8 4.2L SC Timing Chains? Or?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    So I drove my 06 L322 SC (365,000km) to the corner store a few days ago. 10 minute drive. Ran good as always. Shut it off and went inside for 2 minutes. When I started it to leave, a HUGE amount of smoke came out the exhaust, enough that it made a pretty big cloud and took a minute to...
  3. 2010 FFRR SC new timing chains and tensioners running issues

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Just had my 2010 FFRR SC 5.0L to the LR dealer to get new chains and tensioner and guides and 4 new cam sprockets, also had them swap in a new water pump and thermostat it now runs quietly. Prior to sending it to the dealer I swapped out the plugs, the truck ran fine with the new plugs. I...
  4. M62TU Timing chains, guides, Vanos, etc

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Looks like the wife's 2003 Rover will be getting timing chains, guides and tensioners done, as well as the Vanos seals from Beisin. We looked at trading it against a really clean '08 Supercharged, but the numbers weren't making sense to me. So if we're keeping it, I'll get rid of the noise it...
  5. Getting ready to do the cam chains on my 2010 autobiography

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I picked up a 2010 autobiography with 76k miles for a great deal a few weeks ago. The KBB was 37k and i got her for 28K OTD. The truck is immaculate but it has the dreaded cam chain noise.I just do no want to pay 3-4k to have it done and their are very few mechanics i trust.I used to build race...
  6. Has anyone done timing chains on a 5.0 sc yet?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    It seems like these 5.0 engines are having timing chain problems. I just picked up 10 model and i hear a little noise that sounds to me like timing chain is a little loose on the drivers side. It seems to be a BUNCH of work to get to everything. From looking through the manual. I have to pull...
  7. Chains for 275/55-20 tires.

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Anyone on here have a recommendation for chains for 275/55-20 T/A KO2s? I was looking at the Spikes Spider chains (same as OEM), but I'll probably use the chains very infrequently and don't want to have to install the little hub thing every time. Edit: It looks like the "Easy" version doesn't...
  8. P38 Snow Chains

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hello. I have done a search here but haven't come up with the right answer - I hope you all can help. I have a p38 on 255/55 R18. The wheel bolt sizes appear to be 25mm (tell me if I'm wrong - but this was measured with a vernier gauge so is pretty accurate - but not having a 25mm socket at...
  9. Snow chains in CA

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I spent most of my adult life living in the northeast and skiing in VT/NH and never had to deal with chains. Heck, at one time I used to drive to VT every winter weekend in a sports car with summer tires! We live in CA now, which we all know is a "special" place :roll: `) and they require snow...
  10. Driving to Chamonix, snow chains needed?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    As in the title really, driving down to Chamonix New year's day for two weeks and I've just heard on the news channel that French police aren't letting anyone drive in that region without snow chains at the moment. We've done this trip several times before and never needed them, the Range...
  11. Snow Chains - LR OEM or Aftermarket

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi everyone, I'm in California, so the need for Snow Chains will be very minimal- however I do plan on taking my RRS to the mountains/snow in the Winter (next year) to go snowboarding. Question: Does anyone have the OEM snow chains mentioned on the website/accessories booklet? Or does anyone...
