Hi George, my OH was off today and I know he's been tinkering, but have no idea what he's done.  GThe Landy is still off the road - typical when the weather is like this!  I am now stuck with the Mondeo which either won't let me in or will let me in, but won't let me close the doors - not fun when you're running late for school!!  It has been a great car for handbrake turns on the ice though!!!

Hello Annie in particular.What you have said may well be true but Not many of the Merc G Wagons and the Land cruisers and Suzuki's seem to show Range Rover and L/R's how to do it at these off road events is there LOL xxx

Have you cleaned the fuel lines - sounds like dirty fuel, or possibly water/condensation in the fuel system (if it's diesel), Chris

Hi Wizard, Yes I have watched a few of the Landrover rebuild programmes.  Interesting viewing, but I don't like the end result - not my style - too bling!!!

moltonfarm, its a petrol engine!  I mentioned your comment to my OH anyway and he grunted.  Probably not the best time to tell him things when he's watching a shoot em up movie!!!

Mornin all Miri I know! I know! I don't know you at all only on here but you come across to me as a nice pleasant middle of the road lass with her usual worries that us folk have.Bit short of cash this month the leckie and gas needs paying and the car wants insuring they all come at once no matter how I try to even them out  ;D ;D ;D Mark Evans to me WAS NOT spending his money so it came over as a bottomless pocket or should I have said his arm couldn't reach the bottom.You and the OH and I could buy a decent L/R for what he spent on the security kit on the one he did up. Another thing what a krap colour Land Rovers like that are Land Rover Bronze Green to look really good.Well me and the boys think so any way.They don't like a V8 motor either the axle shafts seem to snap quite often We have been there years ago.We are into as straight as one can get factory spec but we do approve of magic spark.Some how Lucas never got it 100% right. There is lots that don't start to good on a foggy morning alright not foggy the sort of morning where every thing is dripping in dampness. ??? ;D :farmer:

Mark Evans is fun to watch in a fantasy sort of a way, but that's it for me.  I wpould much rather see the restoration of a total wreck that has been rotting in a shed for 30 years.
