  1. I'm interested in bringing the bike again, just not too sure if it'll be back in one piece before then. Is there a cutoff date on entries?
  2. Cool! Hows the front diff go clearing the LD28? Mine is a bit close.
  3. plz join us in november, 50km/h is all it needs to do
  4. True true! I guess I'll find out if I ever get the thing drivable lol.
  5. So no work has been done, surprise? I had tentatively decided I wanted some rad looking Deestone tyres in the factory size for this thing when the time arrived, accidentally found and bought these cheap, will get the Land Rover rims tidied up and the tyres swapped over sometime... So if anyone wants to buy some split rims for a Landcruiser holla at cha boy. 2017-08-11_01-01-03 by John Bell, on Flickr Might try track down a second set of rims and still get some Deestones too anyway cause you always need options.
  6. Interested in a trip around the east coast some time?
  7. No update here, except for fixing the picture hosting. So slack. IMG_20170605_113733 by John Bell, on Flickr
  8. Cheers for calling in fellas, looking forward to seeing what you do with it
  9. Pics! Also feel free to call in on your way through or sing out if you need a hand retrieving it/place to stay etc.
  10. Damn, good to see its still around though.
  11. Oh man, so many rusty waratahs and 205 drums around here. Perfect!
  12. But we weren't able to see if it ran, disappointment. So gravity feed temporary fuel system. A battery and a bit of bleeding and glowing. The LD28 seems pretty healthy and sounds great, really enjoying just going to the shed and revving it a couple times a day. Need to figure out whats wrong with the clutch now though, will start by looking at the master and/or slave cylinders. IMG_20170604_111604 by John Bell, on Flickr Like comment and subscribe
  13. So yeah, first priority has been to see if it'd run after its ~10yr rest. But the fuel tank had the drain bung, level sender, and pickup all removed because it had a 'problem' back then, maybe blocked lines? The tank looked in pretty good shape inside and out. So plugged everything back up, carefully tipped a few liters of diesel in there, and sure enough it came out the bottom pretty quickly. Fuel tank lives under the drivers seat. The sender and guage appear to work (pretty) well. IMG_20170603_094104 by John Bell, on Flickr IMG_20170603_094124 by John Bell, on Flickr Rusted fasteners, tank comes out. IMG_20170603_104539 by John Bell, on Flickr Degrease, waterblast, investigation. IMG_20170603_122150 by John Bell, on Flickr Hole. IMG_20170603_122220 by John Bell, on Flickr Tank is folded and soldiered together, so will have an attempt at picking it apart and plugging up the yuck bits. Clean up and paint etc too, this week hopefully. For those interested, the OE Land Rover fuel filter housing seems to be a fairly generic item used on British diesels from this era. It looks to be the same one used on our Lister, and Perkins(Massey Ferguson) diesels. So got a new filter cartridge from for a MF165 for $6ish. Bargain M8.
