  1. P38 Front Wheel spin / Test for Viscous Coupler

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    In testing my Viscous Coupler pursuant to this thread: http://www.rangerovers.net/forum/7-range-rover-mark-ii-p38/45316-bypassing-viscous-coupler-bw-transfer-case.html Hypothesis: If the VC was shot, one wheel when off the ground would spin freely WITH the prop shaft. I followed these steps...
  2. Bypassing the Viscous Coupler on the BW Transfer case?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Pursuant to this thread: http://www.rangerovers.net/forum/7-range-rover-mark-ii-p38/31868-p38-no-4x4-3.html I've noticed that the front driveshaft seems to NOT turn when the vehicle was stuck in the snow today - all 4 corners chained up - only the rear wheels were turning. TC working fine...

    Hi, I searche dthe main site for heatup issues and find out that it could be viscous coupling of fan... One of the way to test it was to rotate the fan when car is cold and it should be soft to rotate and i did it and mine was soft to rotate...then agian test it when it is hot...and mine was...
  4. Viscous Coupling only turned 15 degrees in a minute

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I have noted that the steering is stiff after a drive lately and had a chance to check the VC just now. I put the transmission and transfer case in neutral, jacked up the left front wheel and tried to turn the wheel with a torque wrench set to 60 Ft.Lbs. I only got about 15 degrees of rotation...
  5. Do I need to remove the viscous fan to take out the radiator?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Do I need to remove the viscous fan to take out the radiator? I've following the Rave guide for radiator removal, and it feels like the radiator has to come out with the shroud, because the lower coolant pipe angles up against the shroud. If thats the case, the plastic fan is in the way...
  6. Un-doing the viscous fan nut?..arghhhh!

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Un-doing the viscous fan nut…..arghhhh! Moto One asking about removing his alternator reminded me of the fun & games I had when I replaced the radiator on my ’03 model (BMW M62 engine) recently. Everything was perfectly straightforward and went very smoothly except for the removal of the...
