Interesting. Last time I drained mine the petcock broke off and I had to install a schrader valve, so I've been trying to find something to replace it.

Yep the petcock breaking off is what finally got me motivated. Probably drained a gallon and a half out of the tank

Removed hardtop, vacuumed up the rust and leaves, and fixed the foam on the cantrail by wrapping the softtop pads around it. :-)

Congrats!

Your 110 looks so good in person and was certainly standing out. And there were some very nice trucks in the coral there too.

Wish I stayed to hear that LR diesel with the 3" full back.

Dooofus plumber guy when going to a neighbors house gets himself hung up on a tree stump (departure angle sucked) at edge of driveway. They were trying anything they and the owner had to get themselves off.

All they needed was my high lift on their rear bumper and casting it a couple of times.
They're lucky I walked the dog late today!

Removed transmission crossmember and wirebrushed the crap out of it to get off the ...everything. So, it's full of dried mud and other assorted crap. Figured I'd have to fill it with water to reconstitute the mud then drain it and rinse it well, then blow it out with an angled air line. . . Just don't want it in there.

New threads in the head

Today was a busy day for the 110. Removed the induction and exhaust manifolds, cleaned everything, pulled the exhaust, and put in two new threads into the head for the exhaust manifold. Bearmach EGR delete kit going in tomorrow and then it's all coming back together.

Valve stem seals on my 200tdi. Was running fine but had some odd smoke.

6 of the 8 had ridden up the valve off the head

Wtf?!?

A little closer to getting the 4-link built on my 110. Got some 48" trailing arms fabbed up to mount 12" bypasses and 10" coilovers (14" CO's pictured but those are for the front). I'll get about 17" of travel with them mounted the way they are.

Crank pulley

Finally buttoned up a project from this week. Pulled the crank pulley and idler tensioner pulley. Grooves in the crank pulley so sleeved it with a sks speedi sleeve, pressed in a new bearing into the tensioner pulley, new genuine front crank oil seal and no more leaks and bearing rattle is gone! So satisfying.

Nothing

Done nothing and doing nothing! After 18 months in the shop, and finally getting it back, for 2 weeks, it's been back in for 'warranty' stuff for past month. I did get to drive it 100 miles before it went back-in. Bright side

What Shop?

Yeah- it's been an awesome experience.

Safari Heritage Parts had it for the 18 months. Since I got it back, Dean @ Independent Land Rover Specialist in Bethesda has been THE MAN and will be doing SHP 'warranty' work for me. Dean's just waiting around right now ... just need some answers from SHP so we can get things solid. Maybe a post to come on this educational journey. Hoping everything is handled and I can use it before the leaves are gone.
