Land Rover motors

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Have a client here who specialises in Jag,Rangie,Disco parts. Possibly looking for a source of Defender motors,etc.

    Are the MOD currently disposing of any spares? If so where would be the best place to look?

    Cheers in advance. :)
  2. Cheers for that, I'll check them out. :)

  3. Bearmach , worlds biggest independent LR spares distributor .

  4. Recent auctions have had a full spares kit on the tender list. No idea what they contain though, call them?
  5. I have a feeling that the MOD sells complete engines to a company who then refurbs them and sells them back to the MOD. Seem to recall an article in one of the Landrover mags a couple of years back. It is apparantly cheaper to do that than have storage units full of spares/engines just in case. It might have been Bearmach that had the contract...can't remember.

    I do not think they sell engines direct to the public.

    I have a 300TDI and 3.5 litre V8 engines for sale though :)
  6. Bearmach do supply the MOD but do not do any refurbishing of parts themselves ,the OP is in Aussie and I know they will ship there.
  7. Buy Nissan diesels. You know it makes sense.
  8. No it doesn't!
    Google Navara engine problems.....
  9. Spoilsport. :)

  10. Nice try. :)
  11. Hey feral fondler, if ya ol' mate wants to wait the Department of Defence if ******* off all it's current land vehicle fleet as the Project Land 121 starts kicking in this year. Might be of interest to those in UK as well, pick up a cheapie and import.

    Department Of Defence - Defence Disposal Agency

    I've registered, might pick up a 'Mog' for retirement purposes - Grey Nomad and all that.
  12. ^. A Mog would be ******* awesome. I'll let him know about the Rovers. Motors won't be any good to him though.
