Dear all, Allready long time guesst on this forum, watching how other people doing nice restorations. But would like to share my restoration on my first car. The car I own is a: Land-Rover 109' SIII Diesel Made for the Dutch military. End of last year I bought her, verry happy! Always been a huge fan of the lovely British Land-Rover and finally own one. The Dutch army owned Land-Rovers in a few different designs. The moment I bought my Land-Rover I didn't know much about the type of cars the army owned. Did some research on the internet and found out mine was a bit different. The car I own is a : ''Commando & scout car'' Only 250 were made in this version. This is how she should look like: Quite impressive. And this how my car looked like the moment I went visiting it before buying: Quite different he, But if you compare the bonnet brackets and brackets on the rear-tub you see some agreements. My goal is to bring her back to the original state! So complete with gun pedestal, aerial, spare wheel carrier, etc. etc. At he moment I'm stripping the front. Need to replace al the fluids, filters and lots more. So she isn't pretty anymore:blush: Lot's of grease, oil, tectyl and rust. Ok here pictures! This is her home for this winter, nice and dry! Removed the first wing. New rear leaf springs. Because one top leaf was broken. Both wings removed. Grille pannel removed. Not bad for a almost 40 year old lady:) Inside, still looking 'fresh' My MAG pedestal, very lucky with it, these things are so rare. Also did manage to find a original spare wheel carrier. Ok guys, hope you like it and do understand my texting. I'm for The Netherlands, so my English isn't always 100% faultless I guess. Sorry for that. If you have anny questions, feel free to comment! All the best, Jan
Noticed a small to medium (depending on the lever setting) trickle flowing out from the inclined slot where the arm that is attached to the cable is located. Obviously there is something amiss inside, probably a seal of some sort. Being as though I have not seen a schematic of one, I have not a clue. Is there a way to find out, or is the whole component shot - I have not, as of yet, seen any instruction of a way to dismantle it - It also looks to be crimped together fairly well, and probably for a reason, like it does not want to be. So, does this part have to ability to be broken down for an 'outback repair' to keep it going down the road until a proper one can be fitted? And if so, any suggestions. As this is my first Landy (and one and only means of conveyance) I have to learn as I go. She's at that age (not miles) where certain parts need to be replaced - seals mostly I have found. As the part is pretty pricey here in the States, if I do have to replace the entire thing, is there an aftermarket one that won't take food out of my Heeler's mouth? Thank you in advance for all responses - J.D. Davis Prescott, Arizona.
Hello: New to HMVF - New to my Landy - 91126241C 49GF85 ( 1 year + ) Question : Vehicle was stripped of all paint to bare metal except for the wings before I bought her. When stripping the rest ( so I can paint back again to a time of her former self ), I found Vehicle Marking 21/3 on it. Previous owner said it was in Bosnia stored in a paddock (or lightly used?), along with two others basically unused until Demobilized and down the line brought to the US - I would like to take his word for it as fact. Does anyone out there recognize this unit and its history? Was anybody attached said unit? And if I am lucky, does anybody recall this particular vehicle as early Series 111's were probably not commonplace during SFOR,IFOR, etc... Thank you.
