4x4 Newbie

Postby rocca » Mon Nov 19, 2012 4:06 pm

Hi all.
I'm new to all this and well up for a bit of off roading.
Which may half explain why I am now in the possession of a series 3, with a 3.0l ford v6 dropped in it.
I kinda bought the first one i saw :( ( schoolboy error I know) (don't tell anyone I'm in the motor trade)
The bells should have started ringing, when I had to pull over on the way back from buying it and buy some earplugs !
It is a bit of an old stinker, But I love the damn thing ! (sounds like my ex)
Anyhoo, got a few questions........

1) Does anyone know of someone who knows their way round LRs I can take it to, to see/fix whats wrong? Who's not going to rinse my wallet.
2) I want to fit power steering to it, has anyone done this?
3) Has anyone got a spare reverse gear, as I seem to have lost mine ;)
Cheers!
