Hi folks.

Not my first Landy as I have had a 3.5 V8 Lightweight, an early diesel 90 and a TD 90, but I joined as I bought a Series III 88" diesel to restore.

It's stood 15 years, not started for at least 8 years, cluch, brakes, starter, diesel pump all U/S.
the good news, it's solid, all there and on a galvanised chassis.

Please be patient and kind as I will have a thousand dumb questions!!

Phil

Welcome Fatbob, patience and kindness are order of the day here! One of the very few forums where good manners are the norm. Ask away but don't forget some pics Wink

Only a thousand dumb questions? That's less than the rest of use usually come up with.

Welcome along, Phil.

Cheers
Geoff

Thanks for the warm welcome folks.
I got the diesel pump sorted, pistons stuck in so I was never going to get that bled up!

Been busy sorting other machines out since but hope to get the pump on, maybe even turn a key, all tomorrow.

Yes, a galvy chassis eas a strong selling point for me! I've done the rotted drivers door, and changed all the (ahem...😆), locks and bonnet hardware (seized). It'll be a long haul but there's no pressure as it's not a primary vehicle.

The wife thinks she married a nutter I think. Did I not learn with the 90s?? Haha!
