Hi All, first post here...

 

I love Land Rovers, and have enjoyed driving them through many a dire road (or off road) condition in both North and South America. They've saved my butt too many times, and so I owe them one!

 

Along with meeting new people and going on expeditions,  I'm also keen to understand what kind of local resources are available.

 

So, haha.... Is there anyone here who'd be willing to assist in getting my Series back in proper order?

 

I have a bracket that has sheared off both bolts holding it to the engine block. This was a farm vehicle, and there is definitely a previous fast patch weld (in lieu of the broken 2 bolts) which has also cracked through the weld. The engine runs great! This hasn't affected the engine as far as I can tell. This "fix" will actually help get my braking performance back to normal.

 

Would anyone be game to weld and/or fabricate ?

 

Thank you in advance!

AB

I'd be willing to help, but I'm a long way from Half Moon Bay up in Walnut Grove (almost Sacramento).  I'm sure one of the closer guys can help though.

I may have a bracket you're looking for. You don't specify what engine but your sig says  Santana Diesel. I have stuff for the 2.25.

I don't have either the part or proper welding skills, but happy to get together, crack a beer or two and point at the problems... 

 

In fact, Monthly casual dinner this Thursday at Alpine Inn in Portola Valley. Rover not required but would be great if you want some additional opinions (byproduct of pitchers of beer) on the problem.

 

Cheers,

 

Tom
