    Thumbs up Welcome

    Hey Dave,

    Welcome here, I'm sure you'll get hooked pretty soon - then there's no turning back.

    Another Durbanite; Bob Lemon's also got a Rangy, I'm sure you guys will have plenty to chat about...

    Anyhoo; must catch up some time.

    Cheers
    Mike

    Well the thing is they are all to villaged around Mokhotlong.
    We have a piece of land in a village 10 kms North of Mokhotlong in the Senqu valley. We are busy building a church there, it is at window top height at the mo. We have a feeding scheme there too. All our projects have outside funding. The church by a Dutch home church and the feeding scheme by Joyce Meyer Ministries.
    We are also in the process of buying a new Puma Landy which is being funded by a Dutch radio station.

    I'll let you all know as the thing unfolds.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome.

    Hi Dave

    I also just came across this forum, today! Saw your Rangie picture, it looks great. I happen to have the exact same one in my garage (think its an '82). I'm very keen to restore it, although its in good all round condition. Mechanically its perfect, except for the water pump which failed last week.

    Would you perhaps know where I could find another water pump? I've looked in PMB (briefly) and they tell me they're difficult to come by. Thought you may have some tips? Its nice to see another rangie in such good nick!

    All the best to you,

    Regards
    Doug.
