  1. 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...
  2. 2006 l322 spacers for Johnson rod lift

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I am new to the site and would appreciate any guidance you all can give. I have a 2006 l322 with Johnson rods and 33” nitto ridge grapplers. I use this around town but have primarily built it for off road us. Great truck but I am concerned about the potential loss of compression on the air...

    I need adjustable panhard rods (bushed), and the sources that all had them at one time no longer do. Does anyone know who has any or can make them custom? Thanks, Christian
  4. 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)?

    I've searched high and low on the internet and haven't found much on the topic. I have a 2003 Land Rover, Range Rover, HSE, BMW 4.4L V8 with 104k; that's showing signs of worn bearings ( rough shaking Idle, metal bearing fragments in the oil, and the lovely STOP! LOW OIL PRESSURE LIGHT) I'd...
  7. 92 RRC Upper tailgate handle/lock and rod mechanism

    Range Rover Classic
    I'm in the midst of replacing the rusty mess that is the glass tailgate frame on my 92 Classic with the Masai kit. I also purchased a new handle since mine was missing. So far so good but... I can't figure out how the pin in the middle of the handle interacts with the center of the rod...
  8. Water leak, rod bearing change question.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I have all of the parts necessary to replace the timing cover to block gasket on my 1977 4.6 P38. Since I have to pull the oil pan to accomplish this task, I have a question. The Range Rover has 173000 miles on it. There is a very light no load knock (only I seem to be able to hear this) when...
  9. Tie rod end/end of Drag Link and Track rod

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi All, I have a quick question. At some point I bought two tie rods ends part number QFS000010. I was probably making the assumption that there was only one on each side and two of these would replace the worn units. Anyway, I can't remember the logic when I bought these a couple years ago...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Trying to figure out if the ball joint that connects to the pitman arm on the drag link is the same as the ends of the tie rod.I don't need to get the whole assembly to replace one worn part. My local part store has the tie rod ends...Or, is there compatable part from a different vehicle? My...
  12. Replacing inner and outer tie rod ends advice

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I've replaced my right front outer before, and it was pretty easy, but on the left side I have to replace the inner tie rod end also. Never done it before, and am looking for some advice and any helpful hints to make it go easier. Looks like the wide end of the rubber boot is not easily...
  13. Air bag leak? Tie Rod?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Quick question. I noticed last night that when going around a curve at about 40MPH that the traction control light would come on and there would be a slight vibration. You let off the gas and it would stop. As long as you don't go around a corner to fast it doesn't do it. Also, it doesn't do it...
  14. Engine Failure, Blown Connecting Rod 2007 HSE

    Hey Everyone, I believe I need a new motor because a connecting rod broke and punched a hole through the bottom side of the engine block. It's a 2007 Range Rover HSE with 96,000 miles. I purchased the car with 75,000 miles on it back in the fall of 2012 and I'm only the second owner. I do oil...

  18. Spherical Bearings to Replace Rod Ends in Steering?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Instead of buying new tie rod assembly/ tie rod ends, has anyone made their own from spherical bearings/spacers? I've got lots 4130 tubing and sphericals laying around and figured I'd save some money. They should be just as strong as rod ends. Any thoughts?
  19. P38 track rod re-installation question

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi, So I'm in the middle of replacing all the front bushings on my 2000 P38 with 117K miles. The install went about as smoothly as you'd expect (I have this sinking feeling that the truck is probably going to drive the same as it did before I started this whole debacle once it's finally done...)...
