    Vehicle started life in Cornwall then went to Africa/Canaries/Portugal chassis is solid but has had a rear crossmember fitted but I think due to accident damage...engine still has original paint colour..have maintenance notes going back to 85 when it came to Portugal...

    number is either a recon number or forgery,fitting recons was popular years back whilst now we do up our engines to keep it original

    @jamesmartin spent today stripping all balljoints and castellated nuts and shocks...every single one had a nail hammered in instead of a split pin even the one's front and back of the transfer box...luckily customer's attitude is do what you have to do I want it done properly,as he's in UK thank god for smart phones...

    Just wish theyd used thinner nails that I could have pulled out not oversized ones hammered in...bloody bush mechanics...took 2 hours to undo propshaft bolts from rear of transfer box and every tool in Barrys snap-on tool cabinates due to wrong nuts fitted and rounded off by previous attempts...should have known where this project was going when I found fuel filter sitting stuck on suspension by chassis rail and the canister empty...

    @Shippers
    Saw a nice looking 101 on a trailer behind a 110 yesterday.

    & the 101 Iv knocked on the door plenty of times has finally been sold...not to me :mad:.
    Hope the person that has it now realises the 4.2 will drink that fuel ;)
    Seeing more series landys moving round the country on trailers & plenty of galv chassis stacked high.

    as for the nails.... the old farmer still uses these.

    Might not be wrong size nuts, early series 2 had different size nuts on the rear gbox flange, right rsehole size to work on in such a tight area.
