Selects first gear for a bump start - Do you know anything about cars?
Then he starts it by powering the starter instead of leaving it on and releasing the clutch (to use momentum). That would have been fun to watch in 1st gear!

Need to be careful about that 40 year rule:
"You do not need to get an MOT if:

the vehicle was built or first registered more than 40 years ago
no ‘substantial changes’ have been made to the vehicle in the last 30 years, for example replacing the chassis, body, axles or engine to change the way the vehicle works"
So for example a 1970s Land Rover would be MOT exempt, but not if it had an engine swap from the slant 4 to a 3.5 V8 *after 1990*.

You guys would genuinely make good top gear presenters, because I think that we can all agree that ever since Jeremy, Richard and James left top gear, it has just been a load of rubbish, especially because the new presenters don't know anything about cars.

Methinks you are either colour blind or do not know how to drive a landrover. Yellow is 4wd. Red is 4wd low range.

I've got a series 3 and love it. they take a while to pump fuel through to start, your left hand side front wheel leans in a bit at bottom, needs looking at , maybe wheel bearing or swivels need adjusting.

I have plenty of friends that daily drive series 2 land rovers and even 80" land rovers in Traffic daily. I learnt to drive in a series 2a could never stall it so was ideal to learn in. People have just become lazy drivers.

Ian Hughes
Ian Hughes - 27 päeva tagasi
@kuchodin Whatever they were trying to do, they were doing it wrong. There's no need to push or 'bump' start a car if the engine turns over fine with the key. You only need to do that if you have a flat battery or a malfunctioning starter motor. Ignition on, 2nd gear, foot on the clutch, build up some speed, drop the clutch so that the engine turns over with momentum from the drive train and hopefully starts.
kuchodin - 27 päeva tagasi
@Ian Hughes I see... so they tried to bump start the car and started it with the key. what would this be? *just* starting?

I don't get how you made that look so difficult. My father's daily drive is a 1963 Vitesse with no seat belts and there really is nothing to it. Also you used too much choke.

"The London end of the Great West Road became Britain's first dual carriageway when it was opened in 1925 by King George V."
Just thought I'd clarify that there were definitely dual carriageways in the UK during the 60s ✌️😉✨

For those of you that don’t know, miles was sold. 17 aug 2020. If you do a total car check it shows when the V5C was changed and that’s the date. And no I’m not mistaking. I doubt there is another blue 2000 Skoda Octavia diesel with 432000miles in it
