Good score WF!
Canopy looks in good nick and you got a bonus improvised antenna storage tube, cool.
The rear of the chassis looks very bright. If the rest is the same, you may have scored a rebuilt example.
You could do worse than joining REMLR.com (Register of Ex Mil LRs). Lots of history and info. A few buyers have chatted with ex-pilots of their vehicles!
If you haven't done it already:
Adjust the idle speed up a few hundred RPM with the hand throttle or have a mechanic adjust the pump idle speed.
Without that 4BD1 idle rattling your fillings, it will be much nicer.
Cheers, BDave

Awesome, Cheers Dave will check that out! :) Im sure I will have a couple of questions for you as I go.... like what buttons do what :) still trying to figure how the Vents work, how do you open the flaps under the windscreen? You need to get that Manual published :) WF

Flaps? Lefty-Locky, Righty-slidie ;) Push right to slide forward or back (open/ close).
Feel free to pick my brains, but we'll keep it in the Parentie(sic) Rover thread?
Buyers Guide is available now, I am having a slow time getting authority to reproduce the Operators Manuals. PM me, I can help you out.
BDave.

This is my rig. In reply to medic ben, some of us have tritons ;) I have fairly well kitted it out, most work done by myself. A has the added bonus of twin lockers.

I've just said goodbye to my trustworthy 2000 Hilux dual cab after 10 years of trouble free adventures and have replaced it with a 2010 model tricked out with just about everything. My only intent is a lift kit, but no rush for that.

Pic is of the old beast at one of my favourite spots on the Mary River, NT a couple of years back. I won't post any pics of the new rig until it has been broken in with a recent bush trip.

This was my BLV last week.



I want to get out on the bike more and have ordered some nice leather saddle bags.

Or I have the LJ80



Or the Chevy Luv

The bike is an 04 Harley Sportster. I bought it mostly finished. RSD Clip on Bars, RSD Single Seat, Mid Controls, Cut back guards, everything drilled and lightened, all chrome trim removed, D+D 2 into 1 exhaust and lots of other things ive forgotten. Its a great bike.

I do have a CB250 Cafe Racer bike that I built and is for sale now but it has a very race orientated control setup and the smaller engine isn't suited to longer touring trips.

I haven't had the LJ80 too long but its a great vehicle. It's basically finished aside from gearing. I am trying to track down an LJ50 Transfer case to bring the gearing back down from the 31" tyres. It has a 2" suspension lift and custom shackles.

Thanks for the info Nicko, The CB's look great with the long tanks and single seat. I let a 70's 350 go about 10 years ago regrettably. I adventure ride on a Dr 250, the engine size doesn't matter to me when I am on the dirt but on the road it would be a bit hard on the bike. A mate has an LJ80, I will ask him if he knows of a transfer case from the LJ50 for you. Cheers Steve

I love the LJ80. First car I ever drove was an LJ80 Stockman Ute. I have a soft spot for any fourby of that vintage, LJ80's, F50's, FJ40's, G60's, Series LR's, CJ's, etc. I have an F55 Daihatsu Scat Ute that I want to restore one day.

Thanks Mountain Man that would be great. I have a couple of people looking on the AusZookers forum. I had one lined up but when it came out of the car it has gotten wet and the internals were a bit worse for wear.

Mickldo - Cheers mate. Its a fun toy and follows a mates GQ Patrol on 33's and 3 inches of suspension lift no troubles :) (The only vehicle I own that is younger than I am is the harley, old stuff looks better and is easier to work on/modify)


The honda for anyone interested.

Speaking of oldies here is my 60 series just before it went away to have a diesel conversion.
