So we recently purchased a landrover 101 to restore. I have done some digging while the other half continues to restore it but id really ike tooff know its history and facts about it but wonder is there anywhere that might have or store ex military vehicle photos whilst in action! We know ours was 1 of 33 in its batch off the line to become a gun tractor where the history then fades and a new service card was created when it went in for repair but does not state repairs then it went out to an raf base an then the next record on the card is for it to was be struck off. can anyone help me with info an where to find pics. We have contacted bmm and they sent the service card and registration/manufactured certificate but now I am stuck as to where I can go for the middle info
Hi, Greetings to all. Here is some pictures of my 1976, Land Rover 101 GS. It served with the BAOR in Europe from 1976 to 1993. Waiting for the french bureaucratic wheels to move and produce my "Carte Gris Collection" before getting it tested and out on the open road to enjoy some sunshine. Best Regards Richard
Tonight was our usual four hour stint at MV maintenance. After messing about with the wide track trailer we got into sorting a few issues with our 101 GS. We had, if you remember had a visitation this spring by racoons. We put the rough running down to a plug wire, perhaps it had gotten chewed on a bit. Anyhow, Gerry our trusted mechanic played around with some acetylene but to no avail. So he whipped out our shop pyrometer and soon found one cylinder that was quite cold. After grinding down our plug socket to get onto the offending cylinder we yanked out the plug which looked like it was well fouled. Up into my office and fired up the laptop and looked in the Excel file and low and behold plugs in stock on shelf C3C. So out in the all terrain golf cart to the sea can and pull some plugs out. Fitting the new plug and tightening the exhaust system u bolt clamps and it was transformed into a sweet running machine. All the fluids and dampers in the carbs were checked the other week so its a good to roll vehicle for this weekends outing. Great use of technology a pyrometer eh?!! R
Hi everyone, I'm Duncan from east ayrshire, just come across the site whilst looking for Scammell information! I've had a good numbers of vehicles in the last 10 years of my driving history, only MV's would be 101's of which I still have a pretty tidy GS. I've just bought a basket case Scammell Pioneer from Newcastle so I shall be posing progress on the restoration as soon as I get it home. Any info on Pioneers would be gratefully received!!! :coffee: Me and the girlfriend should be doing a few shows this year, hope to see you all soon! Duncan
