    Changed cam seal to stop a small leak she's had and stopped inlet manifold leaking by using rtv sealant.

    I'm hoping this is now the end to all the niggly leaks.

    Oh I refitted the sump shield too.

    Took a few "last pics" of it Thursday at Blue Anchor .Just got home so uploaded them to my PC . I thought I'd share them as they really will be the last before the new owner collects it.

    about had a heart attack when the passenger window which i thought was goosed, magically fixed itself after greenlaning this afternoon!

    Not that I am complaining like :)

    went to look at a house thats for sale 7 miles from our current un. Thought i was going to get stuck as mines presently only 2wd. Seriously bad road. its 7 miles of steep rough tracks, fords and forest roads.

    means we cannot have a normal car! lol

    LoL I wish our wiveses would understand the thinking: ' just because it don't work don't mean it's broke so why fix it?' & tied in with 'if it aint broke don't fix it':D

    If you take the new place that will surely give you leverage to get another LR? or a nice RRover??:p

    My 2001 TD4 decided that it no longer liked belts and the thermostat housing and water pump decided to chew the belt to pieces :-(

    3 days of repairs and &#8364;800 later I've a new water pump, idler pullies, tensioner pullies a crank shaft oil leak repaired and a new thermostat and housing...

    to celebrate I brought it 300km caravaning - drove like a new Jeep :)

    just waiting on my new obdII and ipad mount to arrive so I can play some more :)
