  1. 1995 RRC stereo wiring diagram

    Range Rover Classic
    Previous owner put in a new stereo but it’s unusable due to the loud hum which seems to plague aftermarket systems. I used to install stereos in a past life so I thought it would be a piece of cake to pull it out and check grounds, etc. I was very wrong, the wiring is a complete mess! I’ve...
  2. 1991 RRC ABS Issues

    Range Rover Classic
    Greetings all, I have recently taken delivery of a 1991 Classic. It is basically "Staying in the Family" as it was given to me by the original owners whom i grew up around the corner from since 1972. So far I have fallen in love with the vehicle despite its run down condition. It had been...

    Range Rover Classic
    Just finished replacing the viscous coupling in my Range Rover classic. I installed the front output flange with the big nut. Torqued that down to specified torque (a lot!).

  6. MPG RRC with Rover 3.5 Sniper EFI

    Range Rover Classic
    I recently installed a Holley Sniper TBI EFI system instead of the original carbs on my 84 RRC 3.5.

  7. LT85 5 speed (defender gearbox) in a RRC?

    Range Rover Classic
    Hello, So I think I might be able to get my hands on an LT85 (Santana) manual 5 speed transmission including matching transferbox, which was mated to a 3.5V8 (which is also included in the deal). In my car I have the same engine, but a 3 speed Torqueglide auto. Frankly I really dislike...
  8. Heavy Steering at idle in 85 RRC with reconditioned steering

    Range Rover Classic
    I have an 85 2 door that has been getting a major overhaul since importing from Spain. A reconditioned steering unit was installed but it doesn't assist at low (idle) rpm. I have read of problems with cars that have an ECU but I believe this car does not have one. Are there any tricks like...

    So, this is new, my brakes (all 4 but the front is worse than the back) will start to rub/squeak after 30 mins on the highway, and heat up to the point where they are grabbing/smoking after 60 mins. If I pull over and let them cool, all goes back to normal and then I repeat the cycle. The...

  12. 94 rrc air conditioning hoses

    Range Rover Classic
    Can any one tell me what the numerous brass fittings are on the AC line that connects from the accumulator/drier to the evaporator under the dash, what is the function of this. These fittings/parts are now obsolete. I wonder if I can do away with them and just make a new AC line that omits them...

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi All, Long time lurker and infrequent poster. I have an 89 rrc I've been working on getting running. The exhaust on it has plugged cats and all the joints are welded together. I would like to ditch the whole thing and bolt in a new factory version. The exhaust set-up looks very similar to...
  14. 93 RRC SWB- Ignition Switch - nearly left me stranded

    Range Rover Classic
    Howdy - wanted to post this issue and see if any of you fine people can comment or suggest what's going on. Once in a while, I'll insert the key into the ignition and it is just absolutely locked up - no movement at all. Each time this has happened in the past, I've monkeyed with it and...
