    When I pull the outside levers on my 2 front doors they take a few seconds of wiggling to open the door. Is this a simple matter of taking the panels off and adjusting the inner rod mechanism like this video tries to show? Or are there bits such as springs in the lock mechanism itself that need...

    Hi All - really looking forward to participating in this forum. I grew up with a few RRC's and just bit the bullet and got a great rust-free, 100k mi, example for myself. Hoping you could shed light on a few things I have noticed: AUX FOG LIGHTS: Head lights work, and lower-spoiler-mounted...

    Hi everyone, I've been looking for a LWB between 1988-1995. I'm starting to dive into this forum and other places for info, but what advice, tips, expectations for repairs can you give me so I know what I'm getting into if this becomes a daily driver for me? Thanks in advance!

    Quick intro Just picked up a 1991 RRC with 200Miles on the clock. Drove it 3 hours home through the Canadian Rocky Mountains right after a snow storm from Golden BC to Calgary AB Great timing to shake the RRC down, zero worries on the road, tracks straight as an arrow, tranny shift smoothly...

    Hi all, 1991 Range Rover with 173,000 miles. I posted awhile back about how it wouldn't pass smog, and cylinder #1 had low compression. (Original link down below) Tore the engine down and found that the left head gasket had completely blown out, and decided to overhaul the top end. Over the...

    Does anyone know if they're interchangeable? I have a 95 LWB and the PO completely stripped the interior. If I lived in the UK, it seems interiors are very common, but in the US, they're hard to track down. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    Does anyone know where I can replacement wiring/plug for the engine coolant temperature thermistor? I can source the thermistor itself but as this pic shows the wiring on the plug is badly corroded with no insulation left.

    Hi everyone, im new here, and i really hope i could get some great feedback. I have a 1988 rrc turbo d with a manual gearbox. I recently swapped the old diesel engine with a lexus v8 1uz-fe paired with the original diesel gearbox. After the swap im getting very bad shakes, the wheels shake and...

    I’ve been on here a bunch since I picked up my RRC at the beginning of the summer. I’ve received a lot of great help and thought you all might be interested to see the fruits of you labor: The beginning: blown head gasket, barely running. I decided to do new rings, conrod bearings, timing...

    Does anyone successfully use a 2 post ramp to work on their RRC? I appreciate the jack points are diffs and axle beams not cills - do 2 post lifts work ok without having jack points on the cill sections? Cheers

    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...

    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...

    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!). Installed the front prop shaft and noticed some movement in the shaft when I grab the end closest to the viscous coupling...

    Shop replaced original alternator with remanufactured OEM Lucas alternator - but the new alternator is not charging the battery. Advanced Auto test shows 0 voltage from the alternator, battery warning light is on and new battery, which tests fine, must be recharged after driving. It is...

    Greetings and salutations my good people! Just picked up a '93 RRC. Been kind of wanting one for years. Found a great deal on a project from a really good dude. Engine has head gasket issues, so will be tackling that first. Plenty of issues after that, ha, ha. I'm a stay at home Dad and...

    I recently installed a Holley Sniper TBI EFI system instead of the original carbs on my 84 RRC 3.5. All working great and the system has a little display with a whole bunch of readouts, one of them is 'lbs of fuel per hour'. I had a fairly long drive on Texas flatlands with various speeds so I...

    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...

    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...
