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. :)

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 :)

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.

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

The Commonwealth of Australia, through the Department of Defence, intends to dispose of up to 12,000 Army vehicles over the period 2012-2020.
This project will dispose of non-combat vehicles such as Land Rovers, trailers, Unimogs, trucks and truck mounted cranes. The vehicles will be progressively replaced by a variety of new vehicles acquired under Project LAND 121.
Under Request For Proposal (RFP) DMOFD/RFP0079/2011 Defence asked for industry advice on this disposal and provided a Vehicle Disposal Strategy Industry Brief. Responses to the RFP closed on 21 November 2011.
Defence is not currently selling these vehicle fleets but appropriate disposal options are being considered.
Any graphic representation of vehicles on this site are intended as a guide only, and are not indicative of the actual vehicles that may be disposed of. It is likewise impractical for Defence to supply estimates of the possible future sale price of these vehicles due to the variability of the assets.
If you or an organisation you represent wish to be notified if a public sale opportunity opens for these vehicles, you may wish to use the Client Register link above to lodge an entry on the Defence Surplus Register of Interest.
I've registered, might pick up a 'Mog' for retirement purposes - Grey Nomad and all that.

^. A Mog would be ******* awesome. I'll let him know about the Rovers. Motors won't be any good to him though.
