Good that you got sorted, .... :i-m_so_happy:for most of us it would be a bit out of our usual stomping ground, but it would be interesting to know who and how you found them, and if they do a good job.

Well,  the ADAC (German AA) towed us to their local garage. They didn't have time to work on it. I asked them for an indication, in parallell to asking here and a facebook group. They towed us across the street to an independent. "Zooauto". I later learned that there was somewhat of a Land Rover specialist a few hundred meters further. but it was only a day or two later and all was already well underway by then.

 

Since my 130 has an engine and autobox from a Disco, with the EDC pump changed for a mechanical. It was a few ooh and aarghs when I gave engine numbers and so forth. For some reason the head gasket that arrived was wrong and when the correct one arrived the engine overheated, thermostat was deemed culprit, removed and the cooling system overheated. 

Head was deemed cracked.

a German "Facebook"friend found a head "locally", I borrowed it and a week after the incident we were on our way again.

 

The workshop was friendly, we could camp on their backyard, borrow their courtesy car to go to the showers and to Abenteuer Allrad fair some 80km away.

I'm glad you got things sorted out.

That looks like a pretty scary place to break down 😮
