    been given a sankey narrow track. Would prefer a wide track but am not buying one!
    Its sat on a driveway for a couple of years, and tub is badly rusted so will repair or replace. All else is present and (hopefully) will just need dismantling and refurbing etc.
    Will post photos in here priobably, or start a new thread, i dunno, havent decided

    Collected the manky sankey.

    Tub is toast, as are the tyres so we trailered it.

    Chassis is fine, brakes work and all bits are there apart from light lenses.

    Found out the military reg. 03ES07 which puts it as built in 1966 and cast in 1999. Served all its life with 4/5 Green Howards.

    Will start a new thread on it when I get to stripping it down!

    Not done a huge amount recently, been concentrating on the Sankey, but I have found some time to do some minor wiring (2 x cigarette sockets and a hardwired dash cam and a hardwired charge port for my Bluetooth speaker)



    Also I had a wheel stud that was a bit ropey - every time I took the nut off slivers of the steel thread came off so changed that, and took the opportunity to change all the studs for the 45mm ones. Not necessary but as I had to change one anyway, it made sense to do the rest.
    The rear drums Studs can be done in situ, but the fronts need the hub stripping to do, so repacked the wheel bearings while at it.

    should stop the mot man questioning it everytime I go in Lol

    But perfectly safe at the increased torque setting Land Rover recommend.

    If I hadn’t had a damaged stud I wouldn’t have changed them, I can’t work out how I damaged the stud anyway :/

    Update on the stud changes.
    rear can be done in situ with the drum off, front cannot be done in situ and the hub needs disassembling. Good excuse to service the wheel bearings though, also its easier to get the studs out on the bench as well, one big smack of a lump hammer and they fly out :D
