My Landy First Start up 28 06 2009

i'll give you a quick rundown on the engine as It doesnt have the origional 2litre motor i left it with the Holden 186 as this was a common conversion done to these Land Rovers in the 70's & 80's. The 6 cylinder Holden engine is attached to the stock LR gearbox with a cast iron adaptor plate made by Johnsons. The holden flywheel is re drilled and balanced to adapt the land rover clutch components mounted in a Ferguson TEA20 Clutch housing. (same housing from a Vanguard) this motor is a nice fit and adds more than enough power to the vehicle. Sounds good too.

This is the first attempt to start it after spending a couple of days preparing the engine prior.
I had to fix a leak after filling the coolant and set the ignition timing it took a few goes to get it right.
also had a problem trying to get the fuel pressure as there was air in the lines but that was an easy fix.
All is needed now is to adjust the timing with the timing light and adjust the carbie as im assuming the backfiring through the carb means its running to Lean. ill have a fiddle with it next week and ill post another video soon.

Its my first resto project everything is quite new to me especially with the engine so i read all the books and manuals to guide me through im learning slowly and enjoying it along the way!

hope you like the Video, cheers!
