First, I took a sledge and piece of 2x4 to the slider on the D1 ... now the passenger door doesn't rub when opening.  :)

 

 

Then I got the '88 RRC out, put some fresh gas in it, pumped a couple shots of grease into the u-joints, hosed it off, and took it for a little spin in prep for passing it along to a new owner.  I really like this truck, and it drives pretty well.  But with the D1 'roadster' I don't think I'll be building it into the crawler I had originally planned.   Besides, I still have the Portland RRC to play with should I feel the need.  :)

Don,

 

Sounds like a John Deere engine is installed ...

I assume you're talking about the noise of the broken speedo cable?  Otherwise, you've got some pretty good ears to pick up something wrong with the motor in those videos!

Besides, if it WAS a Deere, I'd have to charge extra.  After all, people are all worked up about wanting diesels in their Rovers on this side of the pond!

Oh, is that what it was?  Sounded terrible!

Yes, that's why the GPS.  Speedo was in/op when I got it.  Sounds worse in the video than reality but you certainly hear the cable rotating around back there.  tack tack tack tack...

Re-painted the rear bumper and had to use the Hi-Lift and ratchet strap to get the slider parts into position. In between that, Bill Wester and I figured out how to install the Terratrip in Erin's rig for the Rebelle Rally.

Hmmm...it looks like both legs are in use in that pic.

This looks excellent! Never though of using poultry flooring.  :lol:

 

This last weekend Theresa and I scrubbed out the Defender, tracked down some rattles, ordered far too many parts, and did an oil change. As an added bonus we got booted from the HOA guest parking spot :mellow: for scrubbing the interior....

 

If only my garage were taller...

Has anybody ever NOT complained about HOAs??

 

If only you knew somebody who had a shop and was willing to let Rover people come play in it.   :)

Changed injectors last night with a low mileage set I was given some time back. While I was in there I cleaned the throttle body, bypassed the throttle body heater, and changed a leaky drivers side valve cover gasket.

 

Tonight I pulled the inspection cover on the trans and checked the reluctor tabs on the flex plate to make sure none were bent or otherwise looking worse for wear. Spacing was consistent and pretty close to spec of 4.5mm all throughout. Fixed passenger rear window regulator with a couple of fifty cent nylon washers.

 

Need to replace my front motor mounts, again... hopefully the JAG V12 mounts I picked up will last a bit longer. And I might just have time to do my headliner and reinstall it before we lave to make the drive up to Lassen via Paradise this weekend.

$%&#!!! Went to go get the truck smogged this morning and every thing was looking good.. Readiness monitors set, checked for codes and all was good. Smog guy pulls it into the bay and was letting it idle and it popped a CEL before he hooked it up.  Of course.. like I didn't have enough crap to worry about..
