    Well, this is going to be interesting.....

    Usually lurk around the Series and Defender forums since I lost the D2 to an eastern grey.
    Well I just bought a P38a, MY2000, 260k km.
    Has a few minor issues, EAS of course, although it has 4 new air springs and a compressor. EAS ecu seems to be a little demented.
    Oh and a HEVAC blend motor, fun coming

    And the brake hydraulic accumulator might be stuffed, not sure yet.

    Has 265/60 tyres on 18 inch rims, the fronts rub a little at access height. Not too bad. Speedo reads ~8% low.

    Hopefully the 15 year apprenticeship with the D2 will help with the troubleshooting.
    I think the PO was happy to see it go - he spent ~$15k over 5 years on maintenance.
    Mostly labour to a local ?mechanic?.

    So here we go...

    Cheers,
    Terry

    He also has blend motor issues and his owner only has a 13 year D2 apprenticeship...
    It helps - a bit.

    Welcome to the club

    I have yet to come across a really broken AES ECU so I guess it's something else, sensors maybe. The HEVAC blend motors... what can I say they should never have let the french make that stuff (valeo). The accumulator is an easy fix.

    If you have any problems, just shoot a message up here!

    Cheers,

    -P

    Thanks for the welcome
    Not getting too excited about fixing stuff yet, I will ease into it as needed. Drives ok. 12l/100km, I can live with that.
    There is a winch mounted on the front which is coming off. Someone has already walked into it (Ouch)
    P38's don't need winches-right?. I know of a Defender it can be fitted to.

    is it 4 or 4.6, I wish I could get 12 per 100, mine is 16/17l per 100. The 4litre would be a tad under powered wouldn't it

    Its a 4.6 HSE

    12/100 is what the message centre says, highway running.
    Tank fill to tank fill, so average, and kms corrected for the tyres was12.3/100. Over 2 tanks (95 litres - that hurt the plastic!)

    Performance feels about the same as the Davis chipped TD5, I still miss the torque at 1900 though.
