Well, this weekend had some time to work on the Land Rover, overall seems OK as I said before, but there is plenty of work ahead. I am going to start working on what I consider important things (mechanical, rust) and later on I'll work on the cosmetic things (paint, seats, ...) I got an spare whole vacuum pump from Ivan, mine doesn't work right, so after comparing them I decided to swap the pulleys as the one on the spare is broken. In the picture you can see why you need to create the "helping tool" that Santana recommends, here is a picture I drew to try to get it done somewhere.

Well, Today I finally had some time to check the Land Rover. Overall is in good health for a 34 year old car, it has some rust spots, but cosmetics, mostly, some issues here and there, but most of the work needed is maintenance, clean up, paint and suspension/tires. I got the roof rack off, it's heavy!, and fixed the driver's door, which was out of whack. I am making a list of things to fix/replace/take care of, and it's already longer than my daughters Xmas list... and theirs is big!!! Anyway, a picture of a proper garage :)

Well, it's time for another chapter in my Land Rover Life. This time I have decided to get a Series III. I always liked this classic Landies, and this one just got today seems to be in good shape as a start project. Lots of hours are going to be needed to bring it back to top shape, but at least is a runner with almost no rust, a 5 bearings engine (it seems at least) and a decent drivetrain. Some pictures to introduce this one for now and more as the project goes on.
