Sellers Comments - Land Rover based modified competition trialer. Front diff lock, fiddle brakes This vehicle has been designed and built for off road use. I have recently been allocated Registration mark BKU 390 B ENGINE 3500 cc Rover V8 engine, in very good running condition. Recently serviced. Looks to be a military recon unit Ex Forward control FC 101. Oil is clean and rocker assemblies tell me that this engine has done very little work. Accuspark electronic ignition. Distributor breather system to stop water ingress through drain holes. Starts runs and drives very well. GEARBOX LT 95 Forward control FC 101 gearbox. As with the engine this seems to be an excellent unit that has done little work. Drained oil was very clean. Gearbox changes gear very well no whines or knocks has good strong synchromesh operation. Centre diff lock works well, recent new actuator and selector valve. FRONT AXLE 4 link suspension with panhard rod. All tie bars rose jointed. Left hand drive swivel housing fitted enabling track rod to be fitted at the front of the axle. Track rod and drag link are solid steel. Recently rebuilt. New CV joints and bushings, new half shaft, new swivel seals and bearings. Recent new wheel bearings and hub seals. ARB Air locking differential. Fully functional with no knocks or bangs or air leaks. Axle and swivel oils recently changed. Defender front brake calipers. Brake pads hardly worn excellent brake discs. QT Diff guard. REAR AXLE 3 Link suspension with panhard rod all rose jointed. Recently stripped and rebuilt. Replacement standard rear diff. Recent new bearings and hub seals. Defender new front brake calipers excellent discs, which work very well with the fiddle brakes. Diff guard. FUEL TANK Custom bespoke aluminium fuel tank. 27 litre capacity. SUSPENSION Suspension is based around coil over shocks. 4 link with panhard rod on the front and 3 Link with panhard rod on the rear. Have been informed that they are Old Man Emu units. They work very well with this vehicle and it has crazy amounts of axle travel. The suspension has very positive damping and is very well suited to trialing. WHEELS Discovery wheels with turned centres 5 with tyres and spare rim. 5 New Malatesta Kaiman 235/85/16 Tyres SPARES AND EXTRAS Comes with fire extinguisher, spill kit, tow rope, jack and wheel brace. Spare wheel rim. 2pairs rear half shafts, set of spark plugs. To be offered to prospective purchaser, Gwyn lewis bead lock kit ( will not fit to these rims as the wheel well is reversed) Overall this is a very capable off road trialer. The Land Rover is on the road at the moment. There has been a recent registration transfer and I have been allocated registration BKU 390 B . I have V5C registration document for this allocated number, and a valid MOT certificate. NOTE VERY IMPORTANT. This vehicle has been designed and built for off road use. It's modifcations are heavily bias for off road trials. These modifications severely affect its on road handling and performance. I happily use it for local journeys for parts and supplies and local green lanes I treat it as a TRACTOR 30mph. If you think you can drive this away for 100 miles think again. Best picked up by trailer.
