    Broke down!
    A strange one, would run fine along the motorway for 20-30 miles then conk out when I slowed coming off the slip, did this ½ dozen times over a few days, Thought it was a fuelling issue, tried the lift pump etc, but after a vit of trial, error and research, turned out to be the 90⁰ boost hose coming off the turbo delaminating and ballooning internally on the overrun and suffocating the engine!

    All sorted now with some new hoses:) 20220120_113559.jpg 20220120_113720.jpg

    Well it is a standard heater, just not standard for a 92!, but then it's no the right engine either:pfull puma bulkhead and dash. Thought I'd move the handbrake while I was at it too. IMG_20210513_195105.jpg

    Was a bit bored, waiting on my clutch parts, so stripped down my spare box to see what state it was in?
    Ordered some new bearings,seals and baulk rings for it. Other than cleaning all the guff off the casings, it's quite an enjoyable job.

    Now I'm bored waiting on clutch parts and gearbox parts!:D. 20220225_180207.jpg

    Do you have a link for his channel? I'd be interested in watching a gearbox rebuild. Particularly an R380, seeing as mine is wedged out of gear...

    Yeah, the old lever is just to keep the dirt getting in, and to check it goes into gears

    Your Landy looks in good nick. Seat box ends look solid. I know it's got a cover on, but looks ok.
