Time to get dirty again. With a good deal of the small parts now reconditioned (or awaiting replacement parts to finish the job) thought has turned to the engine.
Turner Engineering form the UK are world leaders in remanufacturing Land Rover engines and the will do the rebuild. I’m not a big fan of engine rebuilds, I’ve done a couple of motorbike engines and found, it’s very easy to do a bad job.
Turner offer an exchange programme, whereby they send you a new engine and the courier takes your old one back for remanufacturing and so on. The downside is that LGL would end up with a non original engine. So we’ll see.
But whatever happens, the engine will be exchanged in a”stripped” state, this mean removal of, clutch, flywheel, flywheel housing, starter motor, dynamo, fuel pump and filter, distributor, water pump, fan.. well everything that isn’t the block, cylinder head and timing case.
