    Default Whhhooooo hooooo

    So the yellow Girl is loaded and on her way to P.E.
    A series in the stable again after 15-20 years.
    This is a 1975 Series 3 except for the rims she looks to be very standard.
    This one might even join the other two Landies in Baviaans on the 12th September for my daughters wedding. She might even arrive topless
    She being the yellow Series 3


    Big thanks to Rob in MELKBOS. Thanks to Arij and his wife taking all my nursing and parenting requests.
    This Forum really rocks with helpful people.
    Cheers Guys

    Default Very happy

    Galvanised chassis and Good firewall with Rob's approval was the decider.

    Been off forum and almost off planet for several days due to personal stuff. Greg, I'm sure you'll like the little truck. Arij hasn't spared costs on her.

    There should be a law against taking nice vehicles like that out off the WC to the uncivilized colonies.

    The worst part is that Greg sent someone else to fetch the Landy......
    If you want one of ours, you have to come meet & greet and buy us a round

    Throw 4 new spark plugs her way and she will be transformed. We needed to change 2 plugs (with other used ones) just to get her running

    Default Done

    Got them yesterday.
    The normal gap is 0.029 to 0.032.


    Electronic points should be 0.038 to 0.042.
    That is what I have found on Google etc, etc.
    Is that correct ?

    My workshop manual agrees on the spark plug gaps, but states 0.014 to 0.016 inches on the contact breaker gap.

    Default Wrong on wording

    Sorry, I meant to say if the electronic points are installed.
    Old contact points removed.
    Not standard set of points then plug gap must be bigger for electronic.
    I have set at 1mm. (0.038 to 0.042)
    Is that correct ?

    Leyland's HO was in Blackheath and for most years their primary factory.
