G'Day from OZ

I have just acquired my 8th Range Rover - a 1993 Vogue SE to add to the 1991 already in the stable.

Regrettably, I have just sold the 1974 2 door I had for many years after the motor decided it did not want to work any more - possible due to the camshaft being broken into three pieces! I loved that vehicle and spent over $A10K on it but could justify the expense of changing the engine. It has gone to a good home where it will be professionally rebuilt. It is the white 2 door in the attached pictures.

My 91 car was purchased new by a friend who changed it to a 4.6 engine and added many accessories, two-tone paint, sunroof, Momo steering wheel etc and I acquired it after he had cooked the engine. The shop had replaced the 4.6 with a 3.9 that only lasted 3 years before that failed, so it now has its 4th engine - another 3.9. I changed the original seats to leather electric P38 seats and did a heap of work including a rear diff, new transfer case, brake rotors, BFG KO2 tyres etc etc. Wonderful beast and I shall probably keep it, but we shall see how the SE turns out.

The 93 SE has a completely rebuilt 4.6 block with top-hat liners under refurbished 3.9 heads, plus dual fuel. The EAS valve block has been rebuilt with new lines and air-springs and it goes like the clappers. The bad news and the reason I got it cheap is a complete lack of door locking - key or remote, the sound system did not work, the aircon resistor pack had died, the centre cubby had broken, the surfaces of all wood trims are badly cracked and the exterior paint is only fair. I have started the repair work and depending on how successful, I may keep this, or just sell it for a profit.

As personal background, Iive on a rural property in the mountains south west of Sydney. I'm partly retired but still work as a marketing consultant via satellite Internet for several clients including a Land Rover specialist, for whom I have designed several websites, promotional and advertising material and write all of technical and other articles/website content - see Land Rover parts and service from Graeme Cooper Automotive if you are interested. Despite a lot of experience and acquired knowledge of Range Rovers, there is always stuff where help is needed and that is why I have joined this forum. to get assistance, but also hopefully provide it where relevant

I look forward to exchanges of info with other members

Your help and knowledge is much needed even if a majority of us are Yanks, we all speak Rovah. Welcome to our corner of the world. Very hard to find the old Rangies here because of how the roads are treated in winter, we loose many and it's very noticeable these days.
