1980 Land Rover Series 3 109 ex mod 2.247 from UK and Ireland
Both internal fill fuel tanks leaked. £80 each. just replaced drivers side and will run on that.
Fuel sender replaced £14.
The canvas top leaks, but I'll fix it with some waterproofer (the type you paint on brickwork).
New battery £48.
This is my first Landy. she had been sitting idle for the last six years. I kept asking the owner for the last six years if he would sell her. He finally gave in for £200.
I simply changed the battery. Topped up the oil. Took the fuel feed pipe out of one of the leaky tanks and stuffed it into a portable fuel can. Hand pumped the fuel through to the carb. Put the key in. turned it... and she started. FANTASTIC.
Good British engineering.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
