linkage cable can get sticky. A bit of kroil on the cable ends and working it will free it up if its still an issue.

Update: went out this afternoon and fired her up, drove down to the gas station and filled tank up and pumped the tires up. Let her run for an hour to burn off the old gas while I took the awful window tint off. Window tint is awful to remove by the way. Anyways driver her around the neighborhood and the engine is strong and sounds great. At first the tranny was fine, no issues at all, but once it got hot it was slipping. I decided to go ahead and drive it over to Chip's shop to drop it off so he could get the breaks working, change the oil, put new tires on. Hope to have breaks going in the next week and in the meantime she's in good hands!!

For a truck of that vintage I'd pop for caliper rebuilds along with rotors and pads. Thing is that the pistons get janky and really need to be renewed for best performance.
Also be sure to check all the hard lines for rust.

and the fuel line if you haven't already, you don't want to do a fuel line repair like I had to on the side of a road...

Chip installed working ABS pump and hope to have new brake lines fitted and working next week. Sourced a rebuilt ZF with reman converter, have it scheduled to be installed in the next couple weeks. Will be picking up some freestyles next week in DC for future swap of the deep dish. Looking forward to getting her on the road soon!

Any idea on the lift/tire size on this one? Plans way down the road.

Those look like 255/85's with a 3" lift.

They look big to me, like a 33x12.5

Matt - I agonized for weeks over which size, here's a link that had some helpful info for RRCs


http://www.rangerovers.net/outfittin...ssictires.html


I've gone with 245/75/16s for now. Only a very slight rubbing at the locks, but otherwise, I've been happy. Haven't had a chance to go offroad yet, but the Cooper Discoverer ST/MAXX are super quiet despite it's tread profile.

I have 247/75 on steelies and no rubbing.

Well, picked her up this afternoon from Chip's shop after he replaced brake lines, ABS pump, bleed lines, oil change, and put new tires on. Took off headed home and made it about 2 miles and lost power and barely made it to side of road. Either the alternator or battery. Battery was only month old so I'm figuring alternator. AAA got me back to Chips, he will start back on her tomorrow. First time stranded in a Land Rover! Click image for larger version

Must be something in the VA air! My RRC's been stalling, stumbling and dying. Could be a lot of different issues, IAM, IAV, TPS, coil, various other sensors. Chips the man to figure it out!

She's back home. Chip found a cut wire that powered the alternator. Charged battery up and was a quick fix! Next stop will be tranny shop for the rebuilt ZF.

At a loss

I am at a loss and ready to throw in the towel. Let's start from beginning...
Ordered rebuilt ZF4HP22 from Rover land Parts. Found tranny shop locally that has done RR, Volvo, BMW, Mercedes rebuilds to replacement. Shipped tranny to shop, when it arrived discovered the torque converter was not in the tranny/crate. Had to wait a day for it to be sent again. Once it arrives, shop has it for a couple days, refits new tranny, new gear oil, I go pick it up. Drives GREAT home on the 25 mile journey. Shifts like brand new through all gears. Go out today, jump in, put it in reverse and it slams into reverse hard, but reverse works. I drive it around to a few errands, and reverse again and it seems ok, now that its warm. Drive another hour around and when I get home I park it, and put in reverse again to see if it would shift into that gear smoothly, and I hear an awful noise as it goes into reverse. I proceed to drive in reverse and it barely reverses. It will go, but its clearly slipping.
Shop that did work only covers their rebuilds, RL Parts only covers parts, no labor. So looking at another 10+ hour job at $85/hr to get this removed/replaced and fixed, IF it can be. I'm over it and ready to get back to something else.
Ready to cut my losses, its for sale.
