Looking great! Definitely one of the best colours! The wiring problems remind me of mine, full on disco effect when indicating. Turned out to be all the chassis loom was twisted together and taped up after someone had replaced the rear x member!

Thanks James :) Yer, I think it's the best Landy colour (especially with a bit of patina). And the wiring can be quite a night-mare with PO additions. On mine a trailer sockets been added by using some cheap nasty connectors, with all the wires the some colour fp. I need to get round to sorting it out sometime.

Haven't uploaded any pics for far too long. Just found this from a few months back. I was helping a friend to set out an RTV trial. The boingy is my friends 1990 90" with a transplanted TD5.



And looking a bit farther back I found this from last year:

I've finally got started with the engine rebuild I've been planning. First stage is to take out the crankshaft so I can get it re-ground.

Time to get started:
IMG_20180407_173451 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

Dropped the sump and pulled out the oil pump:

The oil pump safely into storage:

Pulling off the belt pulley:

The removed pulley:
IMG_20180407_190806 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

The exposed end of the crankshaft:

Thats as far as I got today. Hopefully pull off a few more bits in the next few days :)

The engine rebuild continues, today I managed to remove the camshaft, take off the cylinder head and take out the pistons:

First order of the day was to remove the timing cover:
IMG_20180410_101819 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

IMG_20180410_105513 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

Once the timing cover had been removed I took off the timing chain and tensioner:
IMG_20180410_110127 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

After quite a bit of fighting I managed to finally get the crank shaft out:
IMG_20180410_155046 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

The conrod bearing shells:
IMG_20180410_152916 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

The main bearing sheells:
IMG_20180410_152921 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

The view with the crankshaft removed:
IMG_20180410_152939 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

With the crankshaft removed the next step was to take off the cylinder head. With the cylinder head removed the head gasket didn't look to bad, could possibly be the original:
IMG_20180410_172252 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

Pistons 1 and 2:
IMG_20180410_172307 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

Pistons 3 and 4:
IMG_20180410_172314 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

The bottom of the cylinder head:
IMG_20180410_173000 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

The removed cylinder head:
IMG_20180410_173138 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

One of the removed pistons:
IMG_20180410_180824 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

One of the cylinder bores, itdoesn't look to bad to me:
IMG_20180410_181659 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

The top few mm's aren't as worn as the rest of the cylinder I believe due to the piston rings not riding that far up:
IMG_20180410_181748 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

The engine so far, not much left to take off now:
IMG_20180410_181818 by Matt Harris, on Flickr

Next job is to check the crankshaft and cylinder bores for wear and see how much needs to be taken off.
