Hi guys

98 Series 1 Tdi disco with weeping sump gasket (mainly at front). I understand that Landrover don't use a 'gasket' but some form of sealant instead. Anyone had this problem before, and any ideas as to the size of the job to fix?

Cheers

Steve

This is a standard anti-rust system, which pommie engineers have worked on since the landrover was created!

It's an English thing!! when it stops leaking thats when you worry!!!!!!!!! see if you can get on to classic car club that specialises in old pommie cars or even bikes they have sealents that are designed for this job, i think from memory there is one called hermilite, not positive though, old you know, lotsa beer hence lost a few brain cells, hpe this helps good luck.

steve,

Its a shame that the others couldn't have been more helpful instead trying to be funny.

But bazzar was trying to help ..the product that he was trying to remember is "hylomar" this is not suitable in this situation.

Use Loctite 587 "Blue Maxx" or Wurth 250, Threebond 1207C.

crack the sump off and use any of the products above and that should fix it.

Steve,
From the forum at http://www.lrenthusiastforum.com

The overhaul manual for the TDi shows that the bolts are removed in a similar sequence to cylinder head bolts, starting in the middle at each end and working round. Apply a 2mm bead of Hylomar Instant gasket 302 (black) - sounds like a silicon sealant to me - ensuring it is inboard of the bolt holes. Fit sump within 30 minutes and tighten bolts in reverse sequence of disassembly to 25Nm.

Also check http://www.sf.hiof.no/~frodehaa/disco.html you can download the 300TDI manual under Servicing a Disco - Engine
Cheers
