Details: 1991 Range Rover SWB, Aspen Silver, Winchester Gray interior
Southern car its entire life until it came to VA.
134K on the Odometer
Interior a 8 out of 10
Small spots of rust on front floors
NO rust on door sills or rear tailgate
All electrics work, windows, lights, radio, seats, ect
Nice gun rack/dog divider in rear
Engine runs great, Tranny may need replacing, yet to be determined

Looking forward to starting this project!
You already pulled the carpets?

I think it's funny you ended up buying a project that needs a transmission, when we discussed you buying mine when it matched that description...

Insurance is expensive. I Love the insurance product service. Had a brokerage account with them...that sucked. I pulled the money and bought a D90 and my Classic.

Have you figured out the transmission yet?

I was looking for a darker color RRC, I had my sights on the black one and couldn't shake it. I'll know more about the tranny issues this weekend to determine what needs to be done.

First is to get new battery, inspect hoses, check/change fluids, get some rubber that holds air.

Better yet lets set up a time next week(not Thanksgiving) when you can drive by and leave the truck for the day. That way I can take my wheel package to be dismounted, tires put on your rims, and my tires remounted on my 95' rims...less hassle for you, less back and forth. Let me know what you think.

Took those God awful running boards off. I think those were the crustiest things on the truck. Also took the mud flaps off too. Ordered a new fuel pump and relays, for install next week. The genius that decided to make an access hole in the rear load space for this repair should be celebrated.
Took rear light guards off, debating taking the brush guard off too.
Installed new battery, bought new fuel filter, oil for change, brake fluid. Click image for larger version

I needed a new ABS pump and found one used local that will work, but for the original dead one, can it be rebuilt? If so any recommendations on a shop that does this? Would like to have another back up just in case down the road.

Falcon Works does, I think. I seem to remember getting a P38 ABS part that was not available separately through Land Rover.

Matt,

Don't condem the pump yet...there can be several reasons that the pump doesn't work. Relays, pressure switch, lack of use, bad fluid....especially on a truck that hasn't been in use for a while. I think there are several google searches that will lead you to guys that have disassembled the motor end of the pump and cleaned/repaired it....anything that sits for a while may take some coaxing to get going. As I remember that truck had also had some previous ABS work done in an attempt to fix a problem....since you weren't given any specifics about the ABS history when you bought the truck and not something that has happened on your watch may make it more difficult to diagnose. Of course there is the other option that we discussed ie non-ABS brakes which will give you greater stopping power, but needs to be fully researched.

Lets get it running under its own power then we can get it stopping on its own....I'm game

Chip

I got my multimeter out and found that 11.84 V is going to the pump, so power is coming in but pump is not coming on. I got the replacement pump for a great price so if we can't get mine working its a backup. I looked into the non ABS route and if I can't get a pump to work I may look at that option.
Fuel pump and relays should be in mid week from Rovahfarm so I agree we will start there!

Matt - Congrats on the find! I was wondering where your build thread was. I thought you were looking for a '95, so it didn't occur the '91 RRC build was yours. Great cleanup job on the paint. My '95 LWB has paint issues on the bonnet and roof as you know.

I'll second Chip's recommendation to hold off on throwing away the ABS pump as, it can be rebuilt, and you never know when you may need a spare on hand...

By the way, how's the rear crossmember feel, is it solid or is it rusting from the inside?
