I would think Doug Crowther would be a good resource. He is here on occasion, more so over at DefenderSource.

Hello All
My EXMOD 109 is coming along well.
She drives realy well and runs great since ive spent a fortune on her.
Aint nuthin money cant fix other than your health
Ive had to get a lot of stuff from overseas UK , Cyprus, Greece.
Cyprus is best, being an ex British colony still having an airbase and having sold off all their spares and
MOD trucks to Landrovertreasures.com
ive gotten a lot of new old stock parts so ive stuck with the 24 volt waterproof ignition and a 24 volt alternator.
I have removed over 200lbs of FFR radio wire , during disassembly ive found 5.56 and 7.62 clips (not magazines )in the cruddy places
Being Air portable shes seen some cable time due to cable gouges and squishes around lifting eyes.
Most likely ship time also.

I have to ask
For those with Series experience
WHO THE HELL DRIVES THESE THINGS LONG DISTANCE , even with roverdrive i get to 80 KPH = 49.something MPH
Ive got florida old ladies passing me and cursing.
I dont think ill be driving it to Alaska anytime soon.Maybe Saint Augustine is about it.
When complete she will have roof top tent and all the trimmings i had on my disco.
Pictures later after the NEW ugly sand paint job

Hello Dan,
Hello Walter
Hello Dave
Stay well

What's your phone GPS say your speed is? That seems awfully slow, but depending how much weight you've got and what size tires I could see you causing it to not get very fast. That said I daily drove a 2.25 petrol 90 but it would do 65 comfortably with the 5 speed and 3.56 gears. Maybe swap the 4.7s for something else but I'd think your engine may not be working quite as well as it should.

I'm in the process of putting an 88" back on the road so maybe I can speak more accurately in a few months... or years.

Thanks For reply
Didnt think of the phone GPS.
But it still feels like 50 MPH.
Im sure the engine is running well or may be not sure.
I am new to this kinda 4x4 tractor.
Seems to run well enough.

Does anyone put tachometers on these 2.5 petrols
if so whats a cruising RPM.
