They do have a certain presence ( and good allround visability)
The rear gunner could prove handy

I guess its just a matter of whether or not he'd rather have it sitting in his yard or at BWO.

I dont just want to dump on Mike to have to fix it up to the point its road-worthy - it all depends on what he wants to do.
OK I talked to the powers that be (my parents ), first my mom was like no way 2 rovers dead in the driveway, but then I told her about the epic adventure across the US and she was all for it, as long as there isn't 2 defenders in the driveway all winter long.

So at the least if we can get it towed to my place I cna look her over. Jim I'll talk to Jimmy to see about the AAA thing. I'll also send you a PM with my cell # to talk over any details. It'll be prety cool if we can make it happen. If not, hopefully shipping from here in Manchester is cheaper

Update - talked to Mike H this weekend and we both agree that we are burning karma if we shaft AAA into moving a "derelict vehicle" instead of simply assisting after a breakdown.

My plan now is to call BWO and see if they are willing to roll up there with a truck and collect it (I've heard they have a PU and flatbed trailer). If Jesse is willing then I'll have him do the brake work and make it road-able.

If that is a bust, then you'll see me back on here in a day or so...

JimC,

Doing a MC should take at most an hour if you have a second person to pump the pedal.

I have a spare front D/S in buffalo we can take as a spare (not sure if it is the right length, 84 might have the 4 speed LT95)

Battery we can borrow one.

P/S leaks are standard.

Worn box woop dee doo

Not too worried on the wheel bearings, easy fix with steel wheels

The rest can be ignored or topped up.

I am gung ho for this trip. Let me know if you want me to go or not. I would fly into buffalo where I will be staying with my parents for the holidays. Let me know asap and I will get the doors and stuff to fit in the new BMW to go with me up there. If mike wants to go solo, he has a place to stay night 1.

Ron


Battery missing
-Power steering leaks
-PS box mainshaft bad, box might just need adjustment
-Brake master damaged and needs to be replaced
-All wheel bearings slightly loose
-Both panhard rod bushings bad
-Rear pinion seal leak
-Rear transfer case output seal leak
-Rear crossmember shows some rust
-A arm link joint bad
-Driveshaft splines worn
-U joints worn
-Windscreen cracked
-Engine will not idle well, needs some choke to run smooth

Ron if your in then lets make this happen! I have no problem with you coming along driving or whatever, specially if you bring a door or 2! I think I'll either cover the rear doors or put up the drop curtain it depending on the weather. I should be able to make it down to you with no front doors though

Ron - I know the MC and other stuff is all gravy, but someone would have to drive to ECR and do the fixes there in order to drive it out. I figured the best way to do it would just have BWO take care of it so its not an screw-job for anyone else.

Follow-up Post:

Also - were a go with Rob D's trannies and T-cases. Mike can just head to Cityside and load up whatever looks like it will fit in there without having the truck sit on its axles.

I have all four doors. I need the glass and trim out of the rears and latches out of the front but they are light and can just throw them in the luggage. I dug them out tonight. They are ugly but they will keep most of the snow out. I will dig out some hinges too. We will have to strap the rears on as I do not have latches that will work on that truck. No biggie, I have bungies. The SIIIs three front doors should be fine with latches as an 84 it should have SIIIs style doors.

Anyway. If JimC gets me a ticket back to buffalo I am completely ready to roll. Tools, doors, a case of 90wt :-) mechanic's suit . . . sandals for cali!

Mike, if you can make it to buffalo (actually niagara falls 14305) without doors more power to you.

It is RIGHT on the way.

I am emailing you both my number now.

Ron

The plane tix are cool, but I'm a little stymied on your return dates. We can take a guess, but if something goes amiss or you want to hang out somewhere and extend the trip then you're screwed. What do you guys think? I replied to Ron.

I've got some extra hinges. They're rusted, ugly, and a little beat up (I dremeled 2 of them) but they'll hold the doors on. Tell me where to ship 'em if you want them.

If you can get doors from ECR that would be ideal as I will not have to lug mine to buffalo on the roof for the beamer. They should have a rusty parts truck to pull them off of. Take the hinges from Jburt too if ECR does not have some to borrow/steal. BWO might have some too. Lots of rusty doors in maine available you know

Check your email.
