    Still working on the rebuild of my motor. I am slowly falling down the rabbit hole on this. Machine shop checked everything out and says the bores don't look to bad and are within range with minimal wear but says the pistons are rather worn and need to be replaced. So my question is should I...

    I was wondering what everyone considers the "must have" manuals and books when you own a TD5 Defender 130? I want something that covers all repairs. Is the shop manual for Land Rover sufficient? I heard there were 2 parts, one for mechanical and another for electrical? Is this the one...

    Two years ago I purchased a 1967 NADA Series IIA from a friend who had owned it since 1980. In late '93 or early '94, he pulled the transmission to have it rebuilt. Long story short, the transmission, transfer case and Fairey OD went missing and the car never moved until October, 2016 when I...

    I have a 200tdi in need of a rebuild. Symptoms were excessive smoke, high crankcase pressure. Compression test was a little low on cylinder #1, close to 400psi for #2 and #3, but only about 300psi for cylinder #4. Figured it might be headgasket blown at #4 to pushrod tube. Pulled the head and...
