I guess he's used your picture as an example of what he has bought as lets face it the pictures were taken in the summer and there certainly aren't leaves on the trees now! Guess only Viking can answer and show a picture of his actual motor

Ahn the old 200 Tdi lump- looks clean enough did you re-build it?

 

Cracking engine I had a Defender 90 with a 300 Tdi lump in it - sad day when i SOLD IT :good::):hmm:

 

 

I have a Japanese shooting bus now ( which is soon to be for sale- buying a TD5)

Yes, pulled it out of a scrap Disco with 150,000 on the clock,set of main bearings,big end shells,rings etc as good as new.Fitted a good overdrive for "cruising"and enjoy using her through summer.I also have a Jap pickup for shooting/winter,prefer the heater and no draughts!!I have no issue with anyone using the pics,after all they are on a public site.

 

Cheers Nev.

Hi Mungler,you would be hard pressed to pick a tax exempt lightweight with a mint chassis and bulkhead,200tdi,overdrive like this under £3K.Good early ones are getting few and far between....

 

Cheers Nev.

Whats the matter?

 

Nothing to say on the matter? or are you looking out your old Monkees albums?

 

Here let me help you out

 

 

Oh and by the way,

 

I am 38 and have my own company which pays my bills etc. It also allows me to run my OWN landrover and not use photo's of someone elses. That is just the act of a TROLL.

Lez, how do you find the Trooper for fuel consumption and reliability? And is it any good on the motorway? Thanks.

 

 

does around 30 mpg and 70 mph all day on motorways- a little noisey owing to all terrain tyres- for sale as Im buying a dicovery need back seats and the Trooper is a commercial with only the 2 front seats ( and I do own this- photo not stolen from any web sites) very reliable I had the Isuzu recall done last year as they did have a problem with oil pumps etc- but it cost me only £20 to MOT it last week ( small welding job on centre box of the exhaust system) 114,000 miles and runs like a dream

 

just miss having a Landrover to be honest

 

Les :rolleyes::hmm:

cheap jap motor is what you're after, something with a reasonable TD engine so economy plus ability to travel a few miles in comfort.

 

where admiring his tank, not wanting a comfy puff wagon :good:

I know- a landrover with no leak is like a day without sunshine lol

 

Les :good::yes::lol::lol:

I believe it's refered to as "Positive Chassis Lubrication".
