Yes, indeed you are correct, disabling fuel valve and getting assistance to POP a diesel Land Rover is good advice. When I lived in Zambia all the four cylinder petrol Land Rover taxis would hand crank start their vehicles as the batteries were almost always buggered. I sometimes forget how close to civilization we usually are in the lower 48 here in the states, my advice stemmed from solo hunting trips deep in African bush, there was usually no help to pull/ push start if you were disabled. 30 mile walk among predators looking for help not my cup of tea.

Intercooler is cleaned. And the radiator showed. I reassembled the frame. And then reinstalled.

Do you get to work on your truck every night?!?

I haven’t touched mine in years!

Lucky!

I work at home all day. Escaping to the garage is what I do most of the time.

I got the plumbing done and then took it for a short drive. But it was really foggy.

How easy is it to work on these? Greetings from pleasant grove Utah !
Easy! Not much to them. Although, I'm undoing the English bodge fixes in this one right now. My buddy and I just ripped out the entire dash tonight. I've also been putting all new weather stripping in the doors and fixing all the locks and door handles.

Worst part of Rover Ownership is fixing all the things "fixed" by the "financially challenged" in the past...

Fortunately mine was a UK Power Company truck so it wasn't messed up too badly, until the previous owner converted it to left hand drive with REALLY worn out parts... Now that (the entire truck) has been replaced, it is generally quite reliable. Good idea to de-bodge the truck. Might even avoid a fire!

Underdash electrical wiring has been cleaned up. We sound proofed under the dash as well. REbuilding the dash has been somewhat fun.

Redoing some of the dash and some of the wiring on the gauges. There were wires going everywhere. A little more cleanup and it’ll go back in.

Also got the center dash rebuilt. Hid the headunit and mounted the screen.
