I tried to figure out why I can't pull the wiper motor handles out far enough so the switch can be turned on.  Was able to do it before the blades were installed; I know the wipers aren't causing it.  I'll ask about this in a separate post later though.

While underneath gromet greasing the greasy bits and oiling the oily bits found a wet inner wheel turns out to be a leaking break cylinder

No, that's a leaking broken brake cylinder or perhaps a brake cylinder with a break in it!  :-\

Working on the Series 3 - but the tailgate I was repairing is a S2 item [I think]. Quite weird actually as it is on the tub from a 109" ex military 1984 S3 which was demobbed in 1999.

The thing was floppy as anything and 2" twisted  at the closing point.

Not the prettiest thing but is now squared up and rivetted in place of the broken spot welds, and has a plate over the centre rib where the military had the pick-axe bracket.

Started on the rebuild of my 5MB engine. Cleaned the block and then refitted the crankshaft. That's enough for today - might do pistons tomorrow if my nerve holds.

Brakes, brakes, brakes .... such an endless continuation, but my girls are already slowing down and I'm very happy.

Located the "new" oil leak. It seems the blob of Chemical Metal filling the hole made by an escaping diff tooth 20 years ago has finally come adrift.....

Bit of a change from 5 days ago.

Paint job is absolute rubbish from up close as I made no attempt to smooth off irregularities from all the previous repairs or damage, but I was always a function over form person when it came to the finish.

It is stuck and doing its protection job plus it will not attract the attention from the boys in blue that a multi coloured bitsa would

New battery in, new HT leads in, new spark plugs in. Also hopefully fixed a wiring issue that was affecting my full beam headlights. And put a door card back on that i repaired.

Giving this rust removal by electrolysis malarkey a go. Seems to be working so far. The rusty bit of landrover in the solution is one half of an ex mil divided rim.
