Sorry, if this goes in projects? I am unsure?
Ok, so I brought a rusty 1983 110 2.25 petrol and I am excited to learn about Land Rovers and putting them together and taking them apart. I am trying to do the rebuild on somewhat of a budget but since I am doing the work I am saving on labor. This is my second LR a few years back I had a 1996 Range Rover LWB and changed the head gasket with out much fan fair.
I have identified these problems:
Massive oil leak from either or both the valve cover or oil pan
Lots of rust (some on the bulkhead)
Swivel hub leak both sides
Electrical short in the heater (you have to hold the lever down for it to stay on)
General surface rust
Some rust on the bulkhead
So here is what I have done so far:
Radiator removal and flush.
Wing panels off and sanded for painting
Hood off and sanded for painting
Bumper off and sanded for painting
Engine and under carriage kinda cleaned and degrease
New grill and light cards brought.
Oil pan dropped cleaned, painted and gasket replaced
Ground out and primed the rust on the bulkhead
Broken and ground off a lot of bolts
Here is what I think needs to be done:
Replace valve seals
Replace valve cover gasket
Swivel hub seals
Treat surface rust and repaint the chassis
Repair and paint the bulkhead
Needs middle seats and belts to satisfy the girlfriend
Here are my questions and problems:
Where do i get the bolts to replace the ones I have broken or can't use?
What else do you guys think or recommend I should do?
How do I get the brake caliper off? (It must be seized I have broken a wrench and socket)(Not the good stuff
Will a surface rust treatment and chassis black be enough?
Thanks for all your help in advance!
