    Drives like a moderately capable 4x4?

    Better?

    Always fancied an Austin Champ..

    Just got a tool for doing the ball joints on my renault master van and looking at it I think it may well do the range rover as well, which would be a result 20200528_132544.jpg

    Could certainly be adapted for the P38.

    Replaced the useless 3 year old Varta with an MF31-1000 in the project car. Put cars under cover now the sun is getting hot.

    If you can find a A1 hire they usually have it, and cheap too!

    Once nearly swapped an only Mini 850 for one, wish i had, though it was in an 'ell of a state, but ran.
    Had solid rear axles or summat, no diff anyway, bloke, student, at Bath Uni had one in the 70s told me all about it. Rolls-Royce engine totally sealed for immersion sounded useful!

    Independent suspension front and rear. Engine was a very tight fit under the bonnet.

    Yes, the one local to my work has got rid of their pump which I find amazing as there was almost always someone at it when I got there.
    Nearest one now is 5 miles away but it's on the way to my parent's house so not too bad.
    Here in Holland, vast majority of stations have it and that 45p/l was on the motorway!

    Mine is LPG but the nearest place is about 30 miles away which pretty much removes the point of filling her there

    What a sh!t, especially as it is so "green"!
    My ex son-in-law and I have considered having a big tank installed. So much easier with easy access and cheaper to get it filled.

    I will get a couple of ball joints and see who well they match up to the parts in the kit, and get some machined up if necessary.
