The steering set up on the Classic’s is well thought out but has its weak points that are easily improved:
The steering box in the earlier models had bronze bushing in the box. Wear and age catch up with the bushes and sector shaft and therefor start to leak. Lower seals are easier to fit, but if the input seal is leaking it pays to replace the box with the later version, which has needle rollers on the sector shaft and is more reliable.
The pit man arm ball joint can wear a...Read Full Post »

We have looked at the stop and go. Now for a look into the ride and handling department.
“Springs’ are the things! Range Rovers from the start have had a very pliable suspension due to an advanced design, and not many motor vehicles can compare favourably with the Rangie – even now!

The most practical power increase option is to go to 4.6 litres. This can be achieved by either boring, sleeving and stroking a 3.5ltr block or stroking a 3.9ltr or replacing with a later 4.6 block.
The replaceme...Read Full Post »

RANGE ROVER CLASSIC - THE ODYSSEY - PART ONE
Quite a few “Rover car” exponents also have a darker side but still want to stick to their intrinsic belief in the marque – so they also own a Land Rover or a Range Rover – good on them – I am one of the order – I do believe that the classic Range Rover – say for argument sake, 1986 to 1993 models, are questionably the best (in a wide context) four wheel drive “still” on the road.

Things to keep in mind as the cold weather returns
Living where we do we are lucky we don’t have the extremes of weather that some other parts of Australia do, Although I must admit that lately we have had some very sudden changes in the weather pattern.
The main problem that we have in our area in winter is Batteries. The cold weather brings an apparent problem in this area. If your cars battery is over three years old it could fail at any time. If...Read Full Post »
