Re: Hello from the Netherlands

That is shocking! We did leave it on the tow ball. Lucky us nothing happened. I did know not to be near a tow line because of the wipping force. But this is just horrible.
I guess I just humbly have to thank you for the advice...

Re: Hello from the Netherlands

Two weeks ago We had a weekend in Germany at Fürsten Forest, a former military terrain, turned into a 4x4 heaven. Such a great day, I really gained self-confidence and confidence in the car. I prepared myself in driving offroad by watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcTTPV9JmIE This really help...

Re: Anti burst locks

You've got a point of course. Having fiddled with the locks again today, I have finally booked succes. The thing was that I assumed that when I adjusted the striker outward, the door would sit more outward too. That was a misconception. Adjusting it that way makes the door as good as flush and I can...

Re: Anti burst locks

@map1275: I read this article a while ago. I thought it is worth trying if the series seals make the door stick out too far. I do wonder if they will sit nicely though. https://mud4fun.com/2011/09/03/fitting-one-piece-door-seals/ @Geoff: thanks Geoff, I did find that article too. I guess I'll keep f...

Anti burst locks

Hi all, Another thing that puzzles me is that I refitted the front antiburst locks. Refitted the original catches (like on the rear door) too as they where supplied with the cars' spare parts. The doors do close, but the lock has to click twice. It doesn't do that, only once. So the problem is then ...

Front brakes

Hi all, Last week I changed the front brake shoes (with Bearmach's) When they were on the drum didn't fit back on. The previous brakes were made to fit, because I had a good look and saw a bit of the metal was grinded off. Both at the top and bottom. It doesn't seem normal to me, but I made them to ...

Re: Hello from the Netherlands

The previous owner installed the snorkel. So the air for the heater comes in through the snorkel. The heater is still in place.
I'm thinking to take it off, it's only optical and not really usefull I guess in the Netherlands?

Having sold my '84 One Ten V8 back in januari and being content at first not owning a Landrover, I started looking for Landrovers again. At first for a 109 diesel or petrol, but the...
