Re: Gumtree again

Sahara dust, Arctic white. Just like that vehicle register we're supposed to have somewhere on this site. You'd find lots of other Land-Rover 3.9D in such a register too.

Re: Gumtree again

No. I've advocated for years that Australia is an economical source of vehicles but you almost never see it taken up. Save for overpriced units that end up in the States. Though these typically start off as cheap local buys. You can pick up a 3.9D for well under $20 and this keeps you within excepti...

Re: Lack of Power, Help please.

You used a vacuum gauge to set the timing? The pulley has gradual increments and the distributor has micrometer adjustment. So setting statically is quite effective.

Re: Seeking Photos

Some of it depends on precisely which model it is.
Middle row can be one folding bench or a 1/3-2/3 split.
Third row can be two folding benches or four individual folding seats. Plus all the trim panels and window frames.
