Default Cheap Pump or Generator Coupling

Rather than look for a specific brand of coupling, there is a ready-made part available on ebay or Land Rover dealers.

TVF100010 is the rubber donut coupling for the rear axle on late Discovery 1 and all Discovery 2 models.

It retails at over 40 from a dealer, but they are 12 or so on ebay for a pattern part.

5.125" diameter, 1.125" thick with six M12 clearance holes. Hole PCD is 3.75".

There is a clearance hole through the centre of 1.875"

Compact enough and doesn't look out of place on a stationary engine exhibit.



Bolts etc don't come with them, and there is a non-standard heavier-duty part also advertised.

The matching drive flange is STC3723

I have something similar in my garage Peter, only four bolts though. It was the propshaft to gearbox coupling off of my old Volvo 940. Years ago they were called Layrub couplings, only I think they were fabric, not rubber? Bedford's had similar (smaller) couplings on the steering box you will recall, I hadn't ever thought about them having an application for 'our' type of use though but you live and learn!

Yep, remember the TK steering coupling, taking those bl**dy cabs off was a right PITA!

The KM was slightly different as it had a power steering box, so you disconnected the column from the box if I remember correctly.

Done a few 220, 330, 381 and 466 engines over the years!

Me too Peter, probably the start of my back problems!

Hillman Imp ones are smaller and only four bolts from memory.

Long while since I changed one, had four Imps in the day, thought there was only four, pigs to get on or off, bag of cement in the front it would out corner a mini, as long as the head gasket held together

The dreaded 'donuts' - definitely three bolts per spider. I had competition ones on my Clan, took much wrestling with jubilee clips to refit once the original bands were removed!

Out-corner a Mini? With or without a bag of cement, how many times did a Hillman Imp win the Monte Carlo Rally?

Incidentally, shouldn't half the bolts in the above photo of the coupling be fitted the other way round?

If it was fitted to the rear axle of a Discovery, yes, but it's my spare that I carry so it doesn't matter how they are fitted.

There is also a specific way they fit the vehicle, anyone know how it goes on?

No prizes.
