Defender woes

Recommended Posts

First time it cracked at No1 injector as you know got that welded, now cracked at No2. Looked at a second hand head 10 miles away off gumtree from an engine that lost a big end,for £90 squid, didn't expect much. Bloke brought it out and it was a perfect AMC head.Win win

Depending where you're based - talk to Paul Foley at Foley Land Rovers. He's been working with land rovers since the 60's, as has his brother Stuart, father Peter, son Nick.

I trust no one else with my defender. They eat, sleep, breathe land rovers. With all their engineers dedicated time-served Land Rover mechanics and enthusiasts.
