What was the prob with the Steering Rack in the first place ? i didn't get it quite well when u guys said that the diff has to be aligned. Is it like it has that annoying humming sound when accelerating ? or coasting ?

I know from which vehicle that taillamps came from. But still couldn't believe it thats why i asked.

I hope and wish that this Landie would have it's stock tail lamps on it's derrière. I was searching on google trying to find out if a set can be bought new. No luck so far.

If the temperatures are still soaring to 90+ get the thermostat valve checked/Removed(If it's there in the first place)

This forum is amazing. I've been out of town, out of touch and out of circulation for 3 days now but the boys have kept up the work on the car with the same enthusiasm (actually more, under the circumstances) that I would've shown.

JayD, A S H V I N and all the others pouring in suggestions... you're incredible!

Don't worry man!
It's not everyday that everybody gets to work on a car like this. Especially when JayD is involved. He spends his days behind the car and the workshop. Lucky they don't allow him to sleep there which is his favorite passtime after anything from the oldage automotive.

After all, this is what Team-bhp spirit is all about. Nay?

U still feeling piqued about that? Like what I said, the execution is superb, but the concept is a bit too OTT

Thumbs up Brilliant Effort

Brilliant effort put by everyone who was involved with this car. The end result was mind blowing. Frankly i am a noob for cars which are pre amby era.
Steer would love to see your dad alongside the car soon and will be following this thread till the end

I am sorry but I have a weak heart when it comes to anything to do with Ambys or Landmasters.

We picked up the car from the workshop yesterday.
It's smooth and drives better now. Many of the unwanted noises has been laid to rest. The steering tightness has been sorted out to a good extent.
The steering rack was welded to the body and it refused to come off easily. So they had to work on it without removing it.
There're some more issues that needs attention and will get checked out today.

For the first time the landy's (new) life, it was delivered on time from the garage. Many of the problems have been sorted out but some small niggles have been noted. So going back to the garage now.

You can say that again. It is a pleasure to find that there are people who still deliver as committed - the Rs.3,000 bill for all that work:
  • new RHS rear leaf
  • manual adjustment of the two rear leafs
  • alignment of differential
  • fixing the heating issues
  • removing the clutch finger noise
  • fixing all the window winders
  • cleaning the carb
  • checking the entire fuel line for leakage and repairing where required

-
was also such a huge surprise after my monumental rebuild bills.

In hindsight, perhaps only the bodywork needed to be done in Bangalore - we could've carted the shell across and had the rest of the work done here.

If only we didnt have to fall back on hindsight.
