Greetings from the Emerald Coast

Emerald coast...redneck Rivera whatever you call it.

Here's my first Defender. Just picked it up last week. Fully certain this will be a learning process as I weave through all there is to know about DEFENDERS.

Welcome!

There are a few of us in or near the Riveria, and plenty more in the state.

I'm in Panama City Beach. All of the area you mentioned is very nice. I especially enjoy the trails through Pointe Washington State Park out there.

Any suggestions for a mechanic to wrench on my Defender 110 near Panama City Beach? The only import place in town is Henry's and I've read mixed reviews, so I'm looking for options.

I have an issue with the injector pump, seems to want to squirt diesel all over. previous owners said he "rebuilt" it so I'm thinking at least a rebuild and maybe a replacement. It's the 2.5 NA diesel.

Thanks in advance

maybe send it off to be rebuilt, say to safari in orlando ?

otherwise, find the oldest diesel shop around and tell them you have tractor motor so as not to scare them away with the words 'land rover defender'

Good point about a tractor mechanic...I may actually use that one.

Looks like I'll give Henry's a shot over here in Panama City Beach. They're going to pull the injector and send it to Shivers near Tallahassee to rebuild.

Here's Shiver's info for future reference:

Shiver Diesel Performance
32454 Blue Star Hwy
Midway, FL 32343-2411
