Looks like a find that any of us would like to make  :)

Is it going with original motor?

Great acquisition Boxy :). I notice that there is a lot of holes along the bottom of the bumper...very strange :-\

Interesting. I would expect  it to have a long wheel base canopy and.....a stretcher.

GEoff.

It runs smoothly. Not sure if it's the original motor but it's a 2.25 which is a start. Will check all the details on the weekend. Just had to get it home before FFRMAN found out where it was.

Damn that looks good, I have been known to venture deep into both NSW and SA to "aquire" the odd Landy or two! Lol

Well done, would be unique to set up and stretcher 88" again for Corowa next year

Is the Christmas tree 8172?

Yes, they were certainly painted with brushes says he remembering how much fun it was. If the RAEME inspectors (known to some as the RAEME Provos) said to paint it then paint it we did. It was almost impossible to get them sprayed unless the unit was big enough to have a workshop with the necessary equipment. Our maintenance and repairs were all done either at field or base workshop level. They would not spray paint a vehicle just to make it look pretty.

Hey Adam,

How about some pic's of the interior and rear ?

She should be up and about for Corowa next year for sure. We might have a nice row of shorties there lined up. Would look a treat.

Like these mick?? I have all the seat cushions but until I do some rearranging it's outside at the moment so I have them in the shed.

Anyone want to buy a S2a 1964 5 door wagon??

Hello Boxy

I notice that the tub bulkhead has been cut out and replaced. Do you know if this was an ambulance mod to allow stretchers to protrude into the passenger space?

Photo shows your bulkhead and the other a standard bulkhead.

Hey Tommy.

I'm not sure what the modification was for. I have some more detailed pics in my photo bucket.

http://s1153.photobucket.com/user/adammasanbryce/library/

I have drained the fuel tank and then primed the electric fuel pump. It started first go. Steering is super heavy and it has no brakes. I took it for a couple of laps around the paddock.

All of the lights and blinkers work except for a blown blinker bulb.

I have been searching the bin wire webpage for a new wiring harness for this rover.

Should I buy the 1961 S2A military 109 harness or the 1962 63 88 harness.

Thanks. Adam

Best to call them and they will make up a 2A SWB military harness, did that for me a few years ago

Boxy,
I was in Ringwood last week and dropped in to Vinwire to meet Paul.

Pretty impressive, the machinery they have to make the cloth covering for the looms is amazing.

They had a big stand with all types of cloth covered wire in different colours amd patterns, I asked if it was hard to get that type of stuff - not really, we make it all here!

He is just finishing a SWB 1963 military loom for a project that I am helping with, I asked him to change his pattern to include the junction block on the rear crossmember for the NATO socket and the rear lights.

(Originally his pattern did not have this, modified from a civi one).

Have a chat to them, they are very keen to re make all the old looms exactly as they were.

Cheers,

Mike.

Looking at suspension for the old girl.

Should i replace with the same springs or go for parabolics?

Its pretty sad when you can pay $350 in freight from the UK and still be $400 in front on suspension
