Its bled and working, just the one rear to renew. The thing that is chopped went to the grill so might be historic for a winch release. But was attached to nothing. So lopped it off.. 

Had a mate who used to work at a lr specialists with me and he was a god send.

Well the brakes worked, l was able to load the back full of fire word and deliver it to a mate about 5 miles away, running really rich at the moment so need to tone that down... But it was good to have it on the road and running.. Even the heater works!!!

The shooting season unfortunately took over my weekends so the 2a has been sat waiting for me. Not touched since November but on Friday i took her out on the last shoot day, started on the button with no issues, yesterday had a few hours tinkering, sorted out the heater that wasn't spinning. Turns out the fan was bent so stuck and unable to turn. Noticed the manifold to exhaust gasket is gone so need to replace that, clutch still a bit sticky so will investigate that further and need to renew one corners brake shoes and think the cold weather has created a leak on the same corners brake slave. Shoot season over landrover season started...

Trucks now running sweet, clutch issue was just the flexi hose, replaced and sorted. 

Brake hub oil leak sorted and brakes adjusted. And fitted new matts in front and loadbay, looking a bit tidier now.

Ditchman might be happy with me now as i got the degreaser out and gave the engine bay a bit of a clean, ive replaced the heater fan in the cab as the old obe was warped and catching, also i thought the lid was rattling around the tailgate so checked it, found the two rear bolts were loose and no middle bolts or front bolts around the base where it meets the body of the car. All bolts tightened or added so now not rattling there. Unfortunately the chap who helped do the brake master cylinder bent the metal. Mid guard and its actually ripped the inner wing which now has two holes whre the bolts should be to hold it on, si the mud guard is now off, and to be fair it neede replacing.

Went out again this morning after walking the dog and starting to tidy a hedge up. 

Got the idle speed better so it doesn't sound like its missing when sat at idle. But have now noticed that the rear manifold gasket is gone, white smoke appearing from that area. Am getting a rocker cover gasket and also the three rubber seals for the cover bolt's too. Slowly getting the little bits sorted..

next time you clean it spray mr muscle oven cleaner on it first and leave for 10 mins then power wash off...........then let it dry and spray wd40 on it

how are you going to do the rocker cover gasket ? not a stupid question ...there is the ordinary way or the proper way.........?

Have got new door tops and seals for the doors, and today set about putting the seals on. Went to mates so we had the workshop to hand and a nice area to work on, got both doora off, took the old seals off and offered up the new ones, most holes on the new seals did not match the car, so out cane out the drill. Got all seals on for the bottom of the doors doors back on and then attempted to shut them, well the new rubber is solid, and noticed the doors are a little low so pinch at wrong point. Had to take the very bottom seal off so thry will shut. But all shut and snug..
