    Look what I brought home last night ..

    Apart from looking amazing and reality sot on, this going to really confuse a lot of people! Absolutely love it! And I don't like oilers normally.

    RRC engine and box removal

    How early is it? Two door with LT95 then I doubt it as it is huge and heavy! But rereading, (always wise) and it is an auto so pointless post from me sorry.

    Great job it is looking really lovely! Very interested to see the tyres as I have always used SATs on mine, but the tread depth looks to be a huge disappointment on those Fedimas which is a shame as I only have one set of SATs left!

    Electric fuel pump for V8 on carbs

    I've used an SU pump for years then upgraded to a new electronic version (same but no points). I did try a Facet but it leaked like a sieve! At least with the SU I can hear it prime before starting.
  5. Hope you had fun, unfortunately dads taxi bookings stopped me from attending!
  6. Hi Steve, Would love to if I can. This what the AWDC used to be like before the wannabe rally drivers took over and the courses became flat fields! Ironically though Bagshot prooving ground was the first gravel track comp that started the decline IMHO.

    Goodbye or Live on?

    Time for a truthful approach, sounds like your not fussed about a Series LR. It has brake issues that may be more fundimentall than just adjusting? I'd try using pros and cons lists, if that does not work my final decider is to flip a coin, if you are disappointed at the result then do the opposite. Hope you get the right choice for you.

    Help ID these hubs/stubs

    Looks like suffix A RRC to me. The link above shows the bronze bush at the back so not what the photos show.

    Upgrade to Disco 3 TDV 6

    Hercu, Some of the negative comments are BS, the chassis on a D3 is about 4 times the thicknes of a D1/2 and I have not seen any posts about rust other than surface rust as there us no paint on it. I would not trust a Mk2 Cavalier to get to 150,000 miles let alone keep going but D3 does. All the parts being knackered? Maybe it depends on maintenance and if it has early model parts (cant rember what year yours is sorry but mines an MY05) so yes it could well be a money pit. And due to your location probably not a very good prodpect ūTBH, I love mine but even in the UK it is suggested to keep £1,000 spare for repairs at all times. Due to the number of computers in the car (everythinghss its own ECU) you cant drop a different engine in unless it uses the same ancileries, even the alternator! In order to work on it you will really need a proper fault code computer, in the UK they are £400 (Britpart sells the better one) but that is probably more than you are hoping to get an engine or! Maybe it is better to out it as spares? It may well net you more money than you paid for it!

    Egr removal

    Can't say for definite but all the forum signs are that it will include egr but that they cannot remove anything to check.

    Some idiots failing at recovery

    Don't get it, the JCB (or copy) should be an easy self recovery, just use the buckets to lift the chassis out of the mud, then use the slew to move it sideways until the wheels are on better ground?? Similar for the 360?
