Be more specific in your description of your starting problem.

Does it start? Is it just slow?

Theres a burnt wire that looks like its part of the starting system which is what I think he's referring to, however, the burn marks look like its external but someone else chime in cus I could be wrong.

If you're having trouble starting be sure to not keep the ignition in the starting position for too long as the wires will heat up and catch fire, don't ask how I know.

I would say it has not been properly maintained, yes.

i don't know what that pipe that is rusted and burnt out behind the wires is but I wouldn't start the car until I figured out what that is and what it was supposed to do. That's why the wires look burnt.

V8 Carb? It would help people if you told them a little about the truck beyond a couple of close up photos of the engine.

I think that is a disconnected air injection system and disconnected PCV system.

That rusted out pipe is the air injection system as used on SD1 Rovers, didn't think Land Rover fitted that system.

You must have one hell of a exhaust leak, does it sound like a freaking train going down the road?

You can do the job properly and blank off the inlet holes on the head or change the heads. What a cobbled mess you gots there. What else is hiding under the bonnet?

And get some decent plug wires as yours are burnt.

Just saw the second pic. Doesn't appear to be fuel rail.

Oh and the wires are fine. It was just a bit of exhaust heat. But nothing was actually burnt. Just dirt.

3 more HP than a 200/300Tdi and half the MPH. Amazing!

Do you know any sites or books I can look to for repairs? Also, I can get to around 90mph. Like the space shuttle, which is nicknamed "the flying brick" the defender is "the driving brick".

If it can do 90 it is running fine.

What about the exhaust leak? Those rusted out pipes go directly to the exhaust ports in the heads...

Does anyone know any part numbers for the system? Turns out it's the original air injection system as per the 1983 3.5l v8.
