Looks the dogs nadgers etc..etc.... - like it works for a living and doesn't give a flying fuck who can see that. Proper badgers arse attitude right there.

Good spot on the number plate - i'd have had jonny plod dragging me off to learn new criminal activities as I would've forgotten too.

 

Apologies for assuming you were 'in the trade' FOAD - it's the sheer amount of work and motors you seem to get through/hands on and the setup you have.....

 

I may* have said it beore, but I do love this van........

There was a very annoying creaking coming from the w123 which turned out to be the bit where the seat bolts to the floor not being attached to anything, I knew the inner sill was needing done but the seat belt mount was pretty flimsy too.
That's it badly patched together now, it's solid but really looks like shit. a3ca94d7e3e9d820f77cd44f0c505ff2.jpg63bf0fe4945b4b9a1f59798660192ed6.jpg

It doesn't look too bad with a bit of paint on it. 524ed3883b6a7ca753923b52a1b52d79.jpg

Having not had a pickup for a few weeks I had been looking to buy another and was constantly checking ebay and gumtree for something cheap when this came up.

It's a 2.5TD L200 single cab with mot until July, mot history was pretty average, it's had some welding over the years and could do with some more in the future.

It was £890 from a local van place, I turned up in the 305 and the old boys were trying to buy it from me saying they used to export them to Ireland.

Anyway, having swapped the Ranger for the XT350 then selling it for £600, adding another £300 to get a pickup with mot in good working order didn't seem so bad.

It needs a front shock replaced and some holes welded up in the bed but other than that it seems pretty good. The paintwork is quite bad, I think a lot of the rust has been rubbed down and they've just used any old white paint to cover it up.

It has some pretty chunky looking tyres which don't help the handling very much, it seems to tramline occasionally due to the width of the front tyres.

I think it drives a bit better thn the ranger but has an open diff so isn't particularly good at drifting, it just spins one wheel up when accelerating on wet roundabouts = not much fun...

NATO number plate !

Has the chassis snapped in half yet ? :shock:

 Pulley on the crankshaft must be hammered on extra  tight ...or it falls off , and the engine blows up.. :-(

The engine will blow up without help from the crank pulley . Woefully undersize big ends are the cause . My local engine guy reccomends a new set of shells at about 90k as preventative maintainance .
