TECHNICAL CHAT / 110 engine governor advice
« Last post by 11KF72 on May 23, 2020, 06:07:50 PM »
Hi, asking for a friend , he has a 2009 puma 2.4 engined 110, ex SSE  van . It appears to be governed to 56 mph, remove the speedo wires and it drives normally. he has removed the full dash checking for wiring to an additional 'box' but nothing found. Taggerts checked the engine ECM and it is set at normal 86 mph ,the ECM was then sent to a Ford Transit electronics specialist but nothing found (he refunded his charges ) so has anyone any ideas ?  Also are these vehicles built by L/R Specialist Vehicles
 or an outside contractor ? Anyone got one of these , there are a lot around so maybe you've had a similar issue.
 Thanks , Alan

FOR SALE / WANTED / Range Rover Classic gearbox
« Last post by 3 coops on May 18, 2020, 02:30:37 PM »
1990 Range Rover Classic Automatic Gearbox required. (Probably transfer case also).

Existing gearbox barely run in at around 300k miles under its belt hardly any of which were dragging fully laden trailers into unwise places.

Not dead yet, just getting a bit 'growly'.

Edinburgh area.

Will look to collect when the current sniffles have cleared a bit.

Many thanks


GENERAL CHAT / SLROC - Coronavirus (COVID19) Update - 17th May 2020

SLROC - Coronavirus (COVID19) Update - 17th May 2020

In Scotland the advice has not changed and is still Stay Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives and therefore we are still effectively in "Lock-down".

It is the same with our governing body, Motorsport UK,  who have not changed their stance and Motorsport can not take place until at least the 1st of July.

The SLROC committee met by Teleconference during the last week to discuss the current situation and continue to fully support both of the above.

You will of course realise that until government advice changes and until Motorsport UK update its guidance and allows permits to be issued we are unable to put on any events, whether Competitive or Green Road Runs.

We have started to consider how will we put on events when allowed, but taking in to account the inevitable requirements of social distancing.   So whilst the events themselves will not change, the way they are organised and run may seam very different in the future.   We will let you know what this looks like once we have reviewed any new guidance issued.

At present no decision has been made on the various 2020 Championships.   When we are able to re-start, we will consider the number of events available and the viability of continuing this years Championships.

During our meeting, the committee did decide to put on another online social event - look out for more details soon.   We also decided to support a couple of local Food Bank Charities - again, more details to follow.

We sincerely hope that very soon, but only when it is safe to do so, we can get back out on the hillsides and in the forests to enjoy our Land Rovers in their natural habitat.

Stay Safe

Dean Pugh
SLROC Chairman

TECHNICAL CHAT / Re: Series 2a petrol starter issue

Yes it sounds like the solenoid has jammed. Give it a whack with a hammer and that should free it off.
If you don't have a meter, short out the terminals on the solenoid and that will get the starter spinning if there is any power. ( Lots of sparks).
Good luck.
