rr drive flange bolts were less than finger tight, obviously for quite some time as there is/was oil/grease all over the wheel.
same thing happened to mine with the drive flange bolts. Ended up snapping a couple and losing a few and the axle shaft came out the side. (DOH). New hub and it was all better.

Now something 'lectric has gone haywire. Battery charged and terminals clean but no power to anything. Totally dead. Got too dark to do any more fiddling, so will look at this in the evening.

If it makes you feel any better, the 68k mile 95 I bought a while back had a similar list of ailments. All fixed now, of course!

For some odd reason, there is a zinc anode like what you put on a boat's propeller shaft on one of the A/C hoses going into the dash.

OK big push today. Moving a bunch of stuff from the (burned) 93 to the 94. Tires, rotors, shocks and exhaust.

I gotta do more shopping in my own personal parts stash. Just found brand new belt kit, liftgate gas struts mud flaps and those cool solid rubber bumper end caps. I was going to order the struts again! What a dope.

So Rob Bass was kind enough to drop by this evening after work. We tried to get the heater blower going in this thing. Remember it is after dark, and it's pretty cold. Rob amazed me by first of all getting the Atlantic British resistor pack thing out of the green truck via the cowl vent opening. Yes it was held in place with screws on both sides. Then he further amazed me by getting it into the 94 thru the same cowl vent opening and connecting the wires even though the plug was up inside and behind the air conditioning where I could never reach in a million years. Yay Rob. So now there is actual three speeds to the fan. At least the air conditioning fan. The heater fan is still not working. We (he) even replaced the selector switch on the controls behind the panel, but still for the heater, nothing. That is, surprisingly, a step in the right direction cz now we know that the resistor pack is good, the AC is all good (ready for summer!) and that the problem with the heater motor is either the relay that switches between heater and AC fans or the heater motor itself is cooked. So we've burned up two hours, we're cold and hungry and Rob has to bounce.
A half hour after he left he calls me.
The Rover gods have struck. Seems he lost an oil cooler hose halfway home and he's stopped at the Home Depot parking lot. So now it's my turn to help him. Long-er story short, we didn't have the proper oil lines to repair the thing tonight so he's gonna do a field repair tomorrow in the day light to get it home.
I took him home and he'll be OK for now.
Isn't this fun?

Good suggestion, I guess we weren't thinking straight by then.

Just drive over with a new filter and some oil and pull the sandwich plate (assuming it is a v-belt truck if it is a 95 RRC, disco or 97 D90, he needs a line). The nut on the sandwich plate is huge, but I can't remember how huge. 22mm or up IIRC.

Running. Tagged. Just need to pass inspection and it will be good to go. Pretty sure it'll go thru OK.
Heater difficulty is definitely the blower motor. Don't know if I can get it to free up without surgery, but I'm gonna try.

First try at state inspection was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Maybe a half day's wrenching.
I also found a class 2 coolant leak. Looks like a water pump seal.

I always underestimate. Got started on the water pump thing first thing this morning and it took 5 hours once it was all sorted out. Turned out I don't have a spare, so I had to take the pump off the old green LWB, which was fairly recent. I think I put it on last summer so it only has a few thousand miles on it.
I also had enough daylight left to get the old NRP exhaust off the same LeWB and replace the rusted out mess under the black truck.
Switched flasher pots and now the 4 ways work.
Other things left: switch out drive shafts (black truck has a vibration), and do the brakes.
It has also developed the famous Magneti Marelli scream, so I guess I will have to switch it out for the (again recent) one on the other truck.

Thought of you and Joel when I read this on FB from ECR;

"We are now selling off our remaining Range Rover Classic new Genuine Parts via ebay. Listings will go up as we locate and find time to list the pieces. Some of these items may be no longer made, some may be common, so if you have Range Rover Classic parts needs check it out. They make great holiday gifts. Thank you!"

Yeah right. Sort of like the time they were going to start selling doors after hitting "the mother load", or the time a few months ago when they were going to clean out their old building (all via Craigslist), or the time they were going to have a spring cleaning and have everyone come up and pick stuff up. None of which ever happened.
