Cornwall Mechanics?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I recently purchased (48h ago) a Series 2a 1964 88’. Yesterday I drove it from London to Cornwall - it happily sustained 65mph! My mechanical knowledge is close to zero, but eager to maintain it as best I can. 

Does anyone know any good mechanics that will be familiar with Series 2a Land Rovers near the Bodmin area? 

Really appreciate any advice / tips - thank you!

With a Series YOU are going to be the mechanic a lot of the time - luckily it's all very simple!

If you haven't already found it the green bible gives you nearly everything you need:


And the parts book gives you everything else:


Although the owners manual might also give you some tips:

Series 2 will have some detail differences from SIII but only very minor ones.

A half decent imperial socket/ratchet set, a good lump hammer, a grease gun and a stout bottle jack & axle stands you'll be away.
