    Good action shots!

    Did you sort it out? It happens to the best of us. At least you had some tools and the weather was fine!

    I'm a bit disappointed at the other land rover drivers that drove right past and didn't stop to help though...

    Very nice looking Landy. Sure itís nothing major. I am also certain that the other Landyís gave you the customary Landy wave as they drove past

    You know your back is just loving every minute of that hunched over the engine pose, just make sure you hold the position for minimum 30mins at a time, that gets the best results

    I got many waves haha
    My land has 2 pumps, mechanical and electrical and neither could get me going so I'm suspecting it's something else... Ideas?

    Tried fiddling with that. It's all good. I have a feeling it's fuel related or like on my old Alfa... The coil... But going to start one side and work my way through everything...

    This could be. Very likely a condenser that's faulty.

    very much doubt its fuel seeing you have pumps mechanical and electric

    That is not breaking down, it is showing off...

    Hope you get it fixed.
    Sis on every Landy that did not stop, hopefully no forum members...
