Everything works as it should, the vehicle is a joy to drive with plenty of power and is made even better by the burble of a lovely V8 a real head turner! If you want a turn-key vehicle which has had all of the normal troublesome Series issues fixed, then this is the vehicle for you. Mechanics will appreciate how good value this vehicle is.Far too much to list on top of the below. The only thing this vehicle wants is a bit of cosmetic tidying up. My strategy was to focus on the mechanicals. Series 2A gearbox fairy overdrive (all works as it should and is very good). 16'' Modular Wheels with chunk cross-ply tyres.
Tow ball front and rear. New parabolic springs and pro-comp gas shocks very lovely and smooth ride, unbelievably good for leaf springs! New oil in gearbox, transfer box, overdrive and axles. Brakes: Recent overhaul with new wheel cylinders, brake pedal box, new servo and master cylinder.
Incredibly powerful brakes, better than a modern vehicle and stops in a straight line. Chassis, all rust removed and re-plated.
MOT did not identify any corrosion. Fuel system, new fuel tank, new filler hose, new fuel hoses, new Facet Fuel pump (v expensive one), new fuel pressure regulator and filter system. New coil, distributor cap, HT leads, plugs, sports coil. For those of you in the know, this is fitted with a very expensive Luminition electronic ignition system. Comp ratio even across all cylinders +- 10 psi.
I changed the carburettors from Stromberg to SU Carbs from a rover P1. The Carbs were professionally stripped right back, cleaned and re-built with full service kit, gaskets, jets etc and then re-fitted with a full engine re-tune.
Engine runs beautifully with no smoke, always starts and has plenty of power. Electrics tidied up and renewed where any issues existed. New hoses, Radiator Panel (zero rust and re-painted), New heavy duty 4-Core radiator (keeps the V8 lovely and cool never had overheating issues), New Water Pump.
New electronic variable temperature fan control system and upgraded electric fan. Fitted with a brand new Steve Parker V8 exhaust for a Series 2A sounds incredible! Windscreen motor and wiper arm control system.Tidy Series steering wheel fitted. The item "Land Rover Series 2A V8" is in sale since Saturday, February 16, 2019.
