Well my cousin came down today for a family get together and to eyeball a mustang my mom had for sale. Well he agreed to buy that and asked me if I could tow it for him in a couple weeks, I said sure and jokingly said I may have to haul something back down. Him and his dad have quite a collection of vehicles. So he asks if Im serious and offers up a 1994 discovery with v8 and auto trans 100k ish miles but top end of engine has a "tick" but comes with another engine from a rolled over rover (unknown condition). We hammer out a deal, I tow the car get the disco out of his yard and we will settle up later, which means a couple of small jobs, no money out of pocket. He says the body and interior are in great condition. It was his ex-wifes car and I know she kept it in top shape. I think Ive done ok. Pics to follow in a couple weeks when i bring it down.
Im pretty diehard jeep guy but have always wanted a Rover, so it looks like the stars are aligning lol. So I will probably be looking here for advice, diagnostic help and common problems.
Just thought Id share
