Sold On MyClassics.co.uk – 1970 Land Rover Series IIA

Our 1970 Land Rover Series IIA recently sold on MyClassics.co.uk

Despite needing some restoration work, it still runs and, with a bit of care and attention, it will be a very impressive vehicle again in the future.

We will be sad to say goodbye to our Land Rover but we are pleased that a new owner has been found and we hope that the future is very bright for this great classic vehicle.

Underneath Our 1970 Land Rover Series IIA

Since we put our 1970 Land Rover IIA up for sale, we have had quite a few interested parties reach out to us to find out more.

One individual specifically asked about the condition of the underside of the vehicle. One of the workshop team headed up to our storage facility, The Hangar, to take some photos to share with the interested person.

As you can see from the photos below, although some attention is certainly needed to get this vehicle back to its former glory, everything is still running and the car is ready to be purchased by its new owner.

This iconic classic vehicle runs although the current engine is somewhat smokey. A spare engine comes with the Land Rover though which has been seen running in another vehicle.

The Land Rover is also listed on eBay.

Inspection – Checking the Glow Plugs and Fuel Pump on the 1970 Land Rover Series IIA

Our restoration technician Paul has been working on inspecting and assessing the running of the 1970 Land Rover Series IIA that is at Bridge Classic Cars for restoration.

Before any further work is carried out, Paul wanted to check and see whether the diesel engine that has been fitted is running properly and safely. We have previously replaced the injector pump, so following on from that Paul checked the glow plugs located in the engine block.

Back in Place – Installing the Rebuilt Injection Pump on the Land Rover Series IIA

When work began on this 1970 Land Rover Series IIA, there was a slight bit of confusion. Originally it was thought to be a Series III but thankfully, we have Scott who drives a Series II every day to work.

The other bit that had us scratching our heads somewhat was working out what engine it. The last MOT certificate stated it was petrol, but once Ady opened up the bonnet he was faced with an Injection Pump and Glowplugs. Meaning that sometime between then and now, a diesel engine had been put in its place.

Either way, we need to get the Series IIA running. So, our in-house engine wizard Ady had the injection pump sent off to a nearby specialist to be rebuilt and tested. Within a couple of days, the pump was back here at Bridge Classic Cars.

Next Ady had noted some wiring that didn’t quite make sense. A positive cable leading from the glowplug to the frame, in the same way a ground would be routed. After looking into the matter to be double sure, Ady removed the old wiring and rewired up the glowplug to the correct set-up.

Now, it is time to prep the engine for its first fire-up since being with us. Which you will see very soon here on the Bridge Classic Cars blog
