Caveat emptor
I guess I'll pass. Its winter and I don't wanna pull/replace an engine when its cold out.

It was never designed to go into combat. That its been pressed into duty for that is a testament to both the ingenuity of the troops and the short-sightedness of the guys planning equipment purchases.

Back to Landy questions: there's a Disco on CL locally with a blown head gasket. How hard are those to do? How much of the crap on top of the engine needs to come off? etc etc etc

Like so many things, how handy are you?

As for the HG, I got a '00 DII for cheap because it had all the leaking HG symptoms. I paid a shop (Biggs Eastside in Bellvue, WA--good guys!) to do the work after doing homework on it. It was about $2K. In retrospect it would have been smarter to have the shop look at the job and quote rather than chance the purchase. I suppose one way to work this out would be to get a WRITTEN agreement that the sale is pending an inspection and would be voided if it was the sleeves rather than "just" the headgasket.

*If* you get a DII with obvious problem cheap you can put that money towards fixes/mods. You know, because the work "has to be done anyway."

The air suspension electronics on the LR3 have been giving me enough grief lately that I'm going to spring for the AB shocks with OME springs this Spring. It seems that those who have installed them have been quite happy with the resulting ride.

If anyone wants a set of air springs and OEM shocks...

Guess I'm going to join the club.

Were going to pull the trigger on an 08 LR3 SE with 50K once it passes inspection.

Edit:

New to me 08 LR3!




Less poser pictures to follow….

Somethings not right about that. The right hand front wheel has no support on the inside, it looks just like somebody has photoshopped a left side onto it. You can see the wheel studs holding the rim onto the stub, what's supporting the outside of the rim if the inside has no mount?

Each 'wheel' is two wheels with the stubs pointing out from the centre. Easier to see here:
