    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Transfer Box/Viscous Coupling - Grinding Noise & No Drive Greetings all Search has been done but I haven't found anything with similar symptoms other than transfer chain failure, H-L shift movement failure, or viscous coupling failure in which the coupling locks up - none of which seem to be...
  2. Needing to improve drivetrain and engine in 85 classic

    Range Rover Classic
    I'm trying to make my 85 2 door a reliable daily driver. Its a 3.5 with good compression but uses a lot of oil. It has been fitted with a 600 cfm 4 bbl Carter but I still have the strombergs if Ineed to go back. There is a lot of play in the diffs and the gearbox leaks oil. Yep I have some work...

    Any pointers to the intermittent clonk I get after taking my foot off the accelerator when cruising. It’s every now and then and not that heavy. It’s an 8 speed box on my RR Thanks
  6. Will BFG KO2 275 55 20 void factory drivetrain warranty?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Anyone know if having these larger KO2's on the car would void the drivetrain warranty? Discount Tire says that Warranty covers anything within 2% of factory size recommendation and that is what they go off of, and the KO2 fits that. However, knowing Land Rover, does anyone know if they would...
  7. Drivetrain noise.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I've done my fair share of searching this over the last few years. I've decided to take a look into my drivetrain noise. In low speeds I have a whirring noise. Once above 40ish mph everything quites down. It almost sounds like a supercharger whine, lol. It is wheel speed dependent. When...
  8. Rear Drivetrain Mechanical Tapping/Vibrating

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hey guys, I've done the search and lots of research, I'm about a month in to this particular project and have narrowed it down. When I go above 30km/h begins what sounds to be a mechanical tapping sound akin to what is heard in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abxmCFfajKs Noteworthy...

    Sometimes when I start the truck and drive away I get a steady thumping noise so I stop and shut down the truck. When I shut it down it jerks forward slightly. After this jerk i restart and all is fine. I also get the same type of thumping sound/feeling every once in a while when turning...
  10. clunking drivetrain problems

    Range Rover Classic
    Just bought my second RRC, went from a 93 lwb to a 95 swb. The first was a rusted out offroad machine, and the newest one is a high mileage beauty queen. Havent found any major rust on it, just some minor surface rust, and a paint job that looks nearly perfect. The problems I am having are...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi all, Is there anywhere I can get a list of recommended torque values for the 4.4v8 L322? I have a couple of minor knocks and I'd like to run through as much of the chassis/drivetrain/suspension fixings as possible to make sure everything is correct. Thanks Matt
  12. Drivetrain lubricants...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Evening all, I have finally got around to looking at changing all the fluids in the drivetrain. I decided it had been on my “to do” list for far too long. Started with an engine service yesterday, oil, oil filter, spark plugs, air filter. Think whoever serviced last had put the wrong plugs...
  13. drivetrain issues

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I have a nagging issue maybe some if you have experienced. It all started with a steering wheel wobble that is most noticeable when accelerating at any speed. I thought I could have thrown a wheel weight so I went to the tire shop and found out I was out of alignment and my front tires were worn...
  14. 'o3 MK III drivetrain options / capabilities

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have an 'o3 HSE. I'm curious to know how the drive train is setup. I'm looking at different option packages and I'm not finding anything stating there was a Locking Rear Diff as an option or standard. Also is there an automatic center locking diff also? The reason I'm asking is, we're about...
