Spit Beach Par

Went to Spit beach while staying at Dad’s in Par.

Slightly odd panorama taking on my phone.

Almost done

The Land Rover has reached a state of almost completed. The brakes are being bedded in and one edge of one patch welded up. Then as soon as the brakes start to pull straight it’ll be in for an MoT.

We had a little snow this weekend, only a little. They had more than 6 inches an hour east of us. I didn’t know that until this morning when I spoke with a colleague.

Land Rover electrics

Spent another weekend trying to complete the electrics in the Land Rover. The brakes were stripped and checked also.

Running LR

The weekend was mainly spent getting past two issues. One, that the new plate that was made to to blank the exhaust was too thick. It was obstructing the inlet manifold from mating properly with the head. The bolts seemed to go tight and everything looked ok. But the land rover was running mainly on cylinder one, very lumpy. Two, the new condensor and points that I fitted caused a short circuit (this could have been the fitters fault or a manufacturing issue), initially it manifested itself as an intermitant fault killing the engine after about a minute or two. Eventually it shorted out completely revealing the fault by letting the smoke out of the wires. Otherwise the weekend was productive and I now have a running Land Rover with some of the dash in.

Another small step

Spent another weekend in Cornwall working on the Land Rover. We get the wiring in the engine bay pretty complete. Got a few other jobs done also. It almost started but for a poor spark. As was suggested, it probably needs an ignition birthday by ways of all new leads, caps, rotor arm, points and condensor.

Isles of Scilly and Bodmin Moor

Spent a weekend in Cornwall to celebrate Lisa’s birthday, we visiting the Isles of Scilly and Bodmin Moor. Saw some, tens, of dolphins, perhaps the same pod twice, who knows. [peg-image src=”https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-b0-1FFs8UaU/Wcipha4JlAI/AAAAAAAA8QQ/U7RmaNjaDP4xFn9tKQfWZiSvJcmOGB7hQCCoYBhgL/s144-o/IMG_20170923_185009.jpg” href=”https://picasaweb.google.com/100446983108465419613/6469607253830969905#6469607256333325314″ caption=”” type=”image” alt=”IMG_20170923_185009.jpg” image_size=”5312×2988″ ] [peg-image src=”https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-vZ8GpNr9WMA/WciphehXALI/AAAAAAAA8QI/mv97dfrIKnYjGxGPudID38btaXnruxIugCCoYBhgL/s144-o/IMG_20170923_154051.jpg” href=”https://picasaweb.google.com/100446983108465419613/6469607253830969905#6469607257311477938″ caption=”” type=”image” alt=”IMG_20170923_154051.jpg” image_size=”5312×2988″ ] [peg-image src=”https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-1ty7EHbLSr4/WciphVow8BI/AAAAAAAA8QU/d4Ga7zt3HeY6P4sGLmjUEALEP8I3USMZQCCoYBhgL/s144-o/IMG_20170923_144541.jpg” href=”https://picasaweb.google.com/100446983108465419613/6469607253830969905#6469607254926618642″ caption=”” type=”image” alt=”IMG_20170923_144541.jpg” image_size=”5312×2988″ ] [peg-image src=”https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-XonVuLvJav0/WciphcI0cUI/AAAAAAAA8QQ/DcW8q83XQos7FNZtQll12FZI-daux1JKQCCoYBhgL/s144-o/IMG_20170923_144450.jpg” href=”https://picasaweb.google.com/100446983108465419613/6469607253830969905#6469607256671678786″ caption=”” type=”image” alt=”IMG_20170923_144450.jpg” image_size=”5312×2988″ ] [peg-image src=”https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-KsNhbfu-iXU/WciphUfxXYI/AAAAAAAA8QU/imI7IPj3vgY0b5r_ams4ORFiGqZJNdAywCCoYBhgL/s144-o/IMG_20170923_140106.jpg” href=”https://picasaweb.google.com/100446983108465419613/6469607253830969905#6469607254620462466″ caption=”” type=”image” alt=”IMG_20170923_140106.jpg” image_size=”5312×2988″ ] [peg-image src=”https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-0vnsMryx08M/WciphSrhGCI/AAAAAAAA8QI/9oOKtyJIB0A2IgRrKALMy4tiUC12XdmdACCoYBhgL/s144-o/IMG_20170923_134540.jpg” href=”https://picasaweb.google.com/100446983108465419613/6469607253830969905#6469607254132856866″ caption=”” type=”image” alt=”IMG_20170923_134540.jpg” image_size=”5312×2988″ ] [peg-image src=”https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-mqCVppKm_M4/WciphZkDLQI/AAAAAAAA8QU/UiIdFy9cEv8zLaign4ilZ0fQaA_FTv2cACCoYBhgL/s144-o/IMG_20170923_121303.jpg” href=”https://picasaweb.google.com/100446983108465419613/6469607253830969905#6469607255980584194″ caption=”” type=”image” alt=”IMG_20170923_121303.jpg” image_size=”5312×2988″ ] [peg-image src=”https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-2Gj9q1LHaBw/Wciphd-8N1I/AAAAAAAA8QI/jn13CfQSoiUilDulxeIxHGdQ6HcHBiEhwCCoYBhgL/s144-o/IMG_20170923_114542.jpg” href=”https://picasaweb.google.com/100446983108465419613/6469607253830969905#6469607257167116114″ caption=”” type=”image” alt=”IMG_20170923_114542.jpg” image_size=”5312×2988″ ]

Slow progress

Made some great progress on the Land Rover with some help. Got bits shotblasted, then galvanised, other parts just painted. Dragged it all down to Cornwall in the Volvo, one wing went via Hannah in the Mazda. Also visited the Great Dorset Steam Fair on the way down on the Thursday. then spent a few days building up the Land Rover.

Land Rover on Towan Sands

Dave and I managed to locate the series 2 Land Rover that was lost to the beach in January of 1990. Dave saw it in the news and we went and found it.

Weekend in Cornwall

We spent a weekend in Cornwall. No working on the land rover, just a social weekend of relaxing. We had a blowy walk on Godrevy with dad and visited my land rover, but only to look at it.
