    It's a lovely thing but that diesel engine in an 80' is regrettable. Nevertheless, it looks like a great job.

    2.5L Diesel vs. 2.5L Petrol

    Current climate for diesels (although misguided) suggests petrol is a better option. They're lovely engines. I'm a big fan of a decent diesel engine but the driving experience of a petrol is vastly more comfortable.

    Ow lord, random repairs? metric vs imperial front axle

    Can't offer any help but absolutely! Rear brake assembly, prime example. Later Landys are a soup of BL parts - whatever they had available!

    Absolutely. Testament to the versatility of Land Rover.

    Hilarious! Not quite what I'd envisioned but does the job!

    Indicator stalk

    Oh okay, cheers. The last one I looked at didn't have that. It's a late series III so should be fine. Thanks!

    Indicator stalk

    Has anyone replaced one of these? Easy parts wise but they have funny little brass rivets that I certainly don't have a tool for. Currently have not lights as it's buggered.

    Paddock seem to like Britpart or S**tpart as I call it. John Craddock stocks a good range.

    bringing a neglected series back to life

    I'd be spending a lot of time looking at the state of the bulkhead and chassis along with body structural supports. These are probably the most likely things to prevent a successful MoT test. Has it been covered? Why's it been off the road?

    Great! What's the plan? You're brave driving it with dodgey brakes and clutch!

    My 88 series 3

    Good to see another project. What was the running problem? More pictures and info!

    Running hot

    You could use an infrared thermometer to see what temperature it's actually running at? Have you checked your timing recently? The next thing is to check for blockages - flush the system, hose pipe on the heater matrix, through the block and the radiator to get rid of gunge. Careful where the run off goes though! How's your water pump sound?

    Check for vacuum leaks.

    Running/starting problems

    Yes, quite! To be honest, I bought a load of other parts at a local supplier and enquired about them and he threw it in FOC to try. I can't say it effected running but saves setting points gap but realistically, that's no bother anyway! At least with traditional points they give you some warning of when they're getting knackered - these just gave up and could have left me stranded. Is there any significant benefits to the type you have used?
