I can't help but admire the dedication involved in having such a neat landy!
Seen a few classics in the flesh lately that have been wonderfully restored.
One day I'll try have one that is cared for like this!

My last beast
|10-01-2014 06:20 AM|
Off duty for revised suspension work and a new engine management!
Lets hope I don't loose interest like last time and these aren't the last images of it offroad for too long...

My Discovery 2, now gone.
Enter my new 2011 Discovery 4, first one on here.
|09-27-2014 11:29 PM|
It's a bit more complete at this point, but here's a little project I've been working on for a while now.
|09-27-2014 11:15 AM|
It is really useless that LSD. I havent driven it "right", with proper oil additive (LSD), but with normal 80/90 gear oil. That way it is allmost fully locked, ie. When turning on parkinglot tight 90 degree turn, in half turn car will starts to jam and if there is some dirt or gravel on pavement, tire will spin. (37" )
This will strain the joints unnessery and in offroad use in tight corners it causes front to push straight. (Same as full lock)
It is made by Salisbury and I think it the same as Powr Lok used in Dana 60 and 70, so it is best kind of LSD availble that time.
My spare is worn out an that one in gearbox is propably too
|09-27-2014 02:29 AM|
Haha good to know we are not the only ones with weird rules and regulations
Although I would say having a PTO is always nice, not the worst thing yo could be stuck with.
Okay, cool to know about those LSD's, always nice to add to your Rover knowledge I'm mostly a Series guy (though I have a Rangie for racing) I've never really dreamed of a LSD in the center, but I appreciate that Rover did it back in the day. An RRC in the early seventies with LSD center diff, discs all round, great suspension travel etc. would really have put every competition at the wall! No single 4x4 was even half as good then
|09-25-2014 02:45 PM|
Cos most of the first Rangies here are -72, some -71 (very rare) and those LSDs only was in first 6 or 700 Rangies made. ( not imported in Finland then )
It is not surpricing that they switced it to open diff / 100% lock in Solihull, soon after started making them, as it is quite stiff in normal every day driving, and in raff staff you still got the 100% locker built in it.
Winch is from original PTO. Thanks for the taxman, all 4x4 cars got to have PTO of some sort, to get them tax free in here (to 1993 or something)
|09-25-2014 10:15 AM|
|S.frimodt||Some cool Rangie porn there! That LSD for the transfer is super rare, I've never heard mention of one in Denmark even though we have had our fair share of Rangies in the '70es. Thought it was mostly the Australians that got it, but apparently not? The LT95 is a lovely robust gearbox, takes a bit of man-handling to change gears but very durable. Are you running your winch off of an original PTO for the LT95 or something homemade? I'd love some pictures of your winch setup|
|09-25-2014 08:35 AM|
Here is my first post.
Range Rover -79
V8 3,5 w Offenhauser dual plane and Carter AFB carb
LT95 w LSD/100% lock (-72)
ARB front and rear 24spline
Ashcroft 4,75 R&P
37x13,5x15 w 8x15 beadlocks
PTO driven Toyota winch to back
Warn 9.5 ti front
This has been driven off road probably twenty years now, I have it just 5 years...
Hauling other Rangies to home:
My first Rangie, -76, in 2005 Lapland Trophy competition, two am, at night
|09-12-2014 12:32 AM|
Work in progress.
|08-05-2014 12:34 PM|
My '95 LWB. 4.6l, lt230, ARB lockers, GBR gears (4:11 I think), ARB bumper, winch, sliders, rear carrier, etc.
Wish I could take credit for the build, but I traded my 109 for it. The guy did a great job and we use the truck constantly.
Still needs typical Rover love and maintenance, but I'm convinced that there's nothing better than a good one. And not much worse than a bad one.
|08-04-2014 04:30 PM|
Yep, it's got the winch and the original canvas, that I will be swapping the custom hard top for. The previous owner also installed a rangie overdrive. I was surprised when I went to look at it, the frame was like95%, I've since got the engine running smooth, and there's only a couple little tinkering things I'll need to do to get it on the road
|08-04-2014 01:22 PM|
|S.frimodt||Wow! You got any idea how lucky you are that things got the Nokken winch on there?? Many people around the globe will be jealous!|
|08-04-2014 12:58 PM|
Picked up this beast this summer, and have been slowly working on it
Here's the link to the rest of the pics
