5th Wheel Land Rover Defender - Off Road with 45ft Caravan
The end of an epic 3 week journey. The caravan is a 45ft 5th wheel trailer, made in the US, being pulled by a 1984 Land Rover Defender. The caravan was arrested and put in custody by the Police... it is a long story and may one day end up on youtube... It was damaged when we got it back... but this video is about the last 100ft of the journey. Positioning the caravan took nearly all day and there was at least 9 of us. The Land Rover is a very special one, built by Land Rover and registered to them for the early part of its life. The chassis is specially strengthened for the full size 5th wheel, it has vacuum brakes for the trailer and is having air brakes fitted. Soon to be featured in Land Rover World magazine. I thought it would be nice to show the Land Rover doing the kind of work it was built for, shame we needed a tractor to give us a nudge ;)

Modified Rover 3.9 V8 in Land Rover 110. GREAT SOUND
Put on some good headphones or some good speakers. Thought I would take a short video of the sound that my 110 makes with the 3.9 now in it. The 3.9 was originally in my Discovery which I rolled and decided was too small for carting camping stuff. It now has stage I ported and port matched heads that took me weeks of spare time. I purchased an Edelbrock Performer manifold from the US and added a 500 Edelbrock(Weber) four barrel carb. I bought a set of Hedman headers from the US too and have port matched them also. Finally a Piper Torquemax cam from the UK to give it good torque at low and mid range. It runs on LPG and petrol. Did a Bosch BIM024 ignition conversion for $55 that ditched the Lucas setup.
