Every old truck needs a bit of maintenance from time to time. This old Land Rover is in for a bit of service before heading back to the trail.
Having skills give you options, which means you can transfer everything from your first Range Rover to your second Range Rover when you feel like it. Chip feels like it. At Uk Motorsports, we specialize in these types of aggravating problems. It reminds me of the time my cousin got a new BMX bike, but he liked all of the stuff on his old BMX bike, so he moved it all to the new frame. Same idea,but bigger. Bottom line: The green Rover and the brown Rover will be trading a bunch of parts.
This truck has been sitting for a little bit, though seemingly not as long as many vehicles that come here. A brake line had rusted through, so there was no pressure. On top of that, the ABS pump went bad. With a new line and pump, the truck is now safe to drive.
Periodically, Chip disappears into the woods in search of the quirky Rover people. He coaxed them into the shop for maintenance. One of them arrived in a BMW and proclaimed with a straight face that he doesn’t lead a double life. We’re watching him.
This real Land Rover (real means it actually roves the land) came in because the mice under the hood are tired. We shall be installing a re-built engine. Once done, this truck will most likely head back into the woods somewhere. That’s a real live Power Take Off Winch in the front. No pavement needed. I’m sure the driver wears tweed.
Looking at the site, I saw that I didn’t show the Rover after the heads went back on and the engine was re-installed. Pardon me. I do have a photo of the block in place with the heads on, though all the accessories aren’t hooked back up. Take a gander, if you please.
Don’t you love clean stuff? I do.
