Nice thanks I appreciate all the help. I think I have decided to go get it. Worse comes to worse I can swap the engine. I do plan on swapping the interior because the seats are rough. would love a tdi defender! They look so bad ass. I really enjoyed driving it when I took it for the test drive. I just hope it can make the 3 hour drive back home without over heating.
he said he might end up trading it tomorrow for a forester instead of selling it to me. I hope this is not the case. I will be sad for sure, but if that ends up happening i may look into getting a lr3 instead. I just like the manual transmission a lot though.
So he said the breaks were soft and he wouldn’t feel right selling it to me before fixing that.
He said he bleed them and they were still soft so the master cylinder needed replaced and said he’d take 1200 for it And that I have to bring a trailer for it.
So I’m going to go pick it up this week.I hope it is just a master cylinder and that something else Did not happen to the engine.
If the engine does go out do I have to swap it with another 3.9 or can it use later disco2 engines?
I haven't gotten it yet. every time i try and get down to get it something happens. I was only 33 mins away from picking it up when my truck broke the transmission cable and left me stranded with an empty car haler. Having to be towed back to my mechanics shop cost me an arm and a leg. I am trying to figure a way to get down there and get it again soon.he lives 4 hours away from me.
As far as the engine goes i dont i have to replace it yet... I am hoping not. But he stopped driving it because he said htre master break cylinder is going bad and teh breaks dont work.
