    My Rover 101 FC ex-RAF missile carrier.

    Nearly done with water hoses. Only one left, water pump to block. Looks like I will have to remove the 24v Alternator to reach it. Next I intend to fix the failed fuel gauge and adjust the carbs. With the carbs adjusted I hope for a bit more power and improved mileage. I know that at 4400' I...

    My Rover 101 FC ex-RAF missile carrier.

    Finally getting around to replacing the coolant hoses. Have had to cut several of the hose clamps off with a Dremel cut-off mounted on a flexible shaft. They were rusted solid and some DPO* used no "Common sense" at all regards orientation. I still don't know how someone managed to tighten the...

    My Rover 101 FC ex-RAF missile carrier.

    Made it to a much larger local car show for Fathers Day. Nope, I did not wash it, it's DRIVEN, not trailered! This little guy was also there. Now off the road until I get all the coolant hoses replaced, I hate leaks. Pulled the canvas so I will have more room and light for the work. Rover...

    My Rover 101 FC ex-RAF missile carrier.

    Did not find a Tire thread. Anyone tried these superlug-900-16-10in-rgb.jpg Seems they would have to be better than Bar-Grips. Not any less expensive though. The only other 35/10-16 I can find are these, https://www.intercotire.com/tire/148 Probably even more expensive. Manual steering so...

    My Rover 101 FC ex-RAF missile carrier.

    My Rover 101 FC ex-RAF missile carrier.

    I have a spare set of new Greek Bar-Grips but do not like them for off-road use. The common tires are a bit short, I need 35" - 36" for reasonable on-road use. So I am looking to upgrade to a better tread.

    My Rover 101 FC ex-RAF missile carrier.

    The radio set takes a lot of space. I do have the very rare operators seat, ground-plane, antenna, etc. Unfortunately I had to put in a conventional 12v distributor and spark plugs as the 24v to 10v ignition box failed. To fix it I have to find the correct gauge nichrome wire and rewind the...

    My Rover 101 FC ex-RAF missile carrier.

    Thought I had joined this group a couple of years ago but could not log in, so here I am, again? Land Rover is a 1977 RHD, GS, FUT, ex-RAF Rapier missile carrier, also FFW (So 24v) and fitted with Nokken winch. Only been driving it a short time. Previously sat in Kalifornia for several years...
