3 reviews for Defender Td5, 2.4 & 2.2 Tdci header tank

  1. James (verified owner)

    I first bought an Allisport header tank without a sight glass and I did think at the time ‘pity it doesn’t have a sight glass.’ Well when the sight glass model came on sale I went and bought it straight away. My ABS fitted Puma added a twist in installing the tank but Defenders are like that.

  2. Mr Gordon

    I was fed up with the cheapo plastic UFO shaped tupperware tank fitted as standard. Not only did it look rubbish but I found it impossible to check level without opening and dipping. Then I found this! Beautifully made and a level sight to check at a glance. Brilliant!

  3. Expedition Rove

    We used a Allisport tank in our Disco 2 on a previous trip through Central America and it performed faultlessly, unlike the standard ones that kept cracking. So when we got our TDCI Defender we made the same upgrade ( which takes minutes to fit)

    It’s been on our Landy now for just over 10,000 miles, cruising around the UK and up into the arctic circle, and just like our old one it has performed faultlessly.

    Strongly recommend, plus it looks awesome too

AlliSport strive to produce the highest quality products designed to withstand many years of use and we are proud to stand behind these products. However, we manufacture many products and if you make enough of anything, a limited number of problems may be expected. It is how we deal with a problem that is important!

Effective January 2016 onwards, if your product fails due to a manufacturing defect we will repair or replace it without charge, at our discretion. Only original, unaltered and unmodified materials and workmanship are covered by this policy.
