    IMAG1557.jpg READY FOR NEXT YEAR. Went to Bunnings the other day & bought a plastic Owl , would have bought a couple more if they had more than one on stock, We have 3 Bunnings all the same distance from us , 2 out of the 3 did not have any stock, then two days later I receiver a Bunnings catalogue in the post showing Owls for around $20. I wish we still had our Masters down the road they used to stock everything & plenty of stock.

    To start with I have not been able to scare the birds away , they sit in the owls head ( may be because I bought it from Bunnings . Two out of every three things are no good & I have to return it)
    I also tried a laser pointed , they leave when i point it at them but come back straight away. May be this is what is needed

    Now for the work progress Landy , there has not been any since September When I had a fall & punched holes through the cartage in my left wrist & have had to wear this sinceIMAG1904.jpg I saw the specialist a couple of weeks ago & he gave me two options to fix it. The first which I am not keen on is to cut a section out of one of the long bones in my forearm & screw a SS plate on to hold it together & I will be in plaster for up to 6 months to stop the bones grinding together , the 2nd is to do keyhole surgery & clean out the chips of bone & grind the bones in the joint smooth again & it will be bandaged up for 10 days . I like the 2nd option but it may not be an 100% repair but it is worth having a go. .

    Anyway yesterday I git sick of not being able to drive Landy so I removed the wrist brace then removed the floor & top of the gearbox to see why I only had 1st & 2nd or 3rd & 4th but couldn't select all the gears. What I found was when I was replacing the selector shaft seals I had not got one of the selector forks back in the correct place in the syncro drum. I removed the forward gear rails & forks & fitted them correctly IMAG1588.jpgIMAG1590.jpg making sure the interlocks lined up.
    This morning I refitted the the top & checked that I could get all gears OK then refitted the floorIMAG1901.jpgIMAG1903.jpg

    I have knocked off for the day as my wrist is giving me hell But it was worth the pain to get a bit of LR therapy. I am now off to take some pain killers , refit the brace & give it a rest for a few days before doing a bit more to get it back on the road. My wife bought me a new carby for Landy for my birthday in January I can't wait to be able to fit it & see how much better she runs with out all there in the butterfly shaft. That I think will need to wait until after the OP as I keep droping the nuts when I am trying to get into difficult places.

    Still raining here in Brisbane so managed to get a little done.
    !st - I stuck some self adhesive rubber seal on the seat box center cover & bolted that in place .
    2nd- I refitted the heater , I had to remove it to remove the gear box cover. This took most of the time , not an easy job by your self trying to hold the heater up & fit the nuts on the securing studs especially the one behind the cylinder head, with only one good wrist, but got there in the end. Refilled the radiator & started the engine ( although not being started for over 4 months started on second turn) & ran up to operating temp to make sure there was no air locks. Also fitted the demister hoses .IMAG1912.jpgIMAG1911.jpgIMAG1910.jpgIMAG1917.jpg

    My wife bought me a new Solex Carby for Landy back in January for my birthday ( Well I bought it & she warped it & gave it to me) I just took it out of the box & opened the sealed plastic bag to have a look at it. It looks rite but there are a few differences from the original. 1st it doesn't have a base section , the base & main body are molded in one piece. 2nd the vacuum advance line comes out in a different place behind the accelerator pump crank rod. 3rd there is no play between the throttle shaft & bushes in the body that's got to be a plus.

    IMAG1921_LI.jpgIMAG1924.jpg IMAG1923_LI.jpg
    1st photo is old carby with vacuum line just above the holding down bolt.
    2nd photo of new carby from same side , no hole for vacuum line.
    3rd photo carby turned 90deg shows hole for vacuum line . This may or may not be a good place for it will see when i get around to fitting it.

    This is the only bit of LR work done today its wife's turn to have Bitch & Stitch at our place this month so have had to trim all the hedges , mow & hose down the paths ready for Tuesday.
    Grrrrrrrrr.

    I need to buy a new oval to round joiner between the carby horn & air filter but the only one so far that I have found will cost me an arm & leg to buy & freight from Cyprus , around $160. does any one know of any at a better price.IMAG1926_LI.jpgIMAG1925_LI.jpg My old one has a large split under neath.

    I don't know what happened when I tried to post on here last time it started a new post & can not work out how to delete the other post.

    Air Filter Hose.jpg This is the new one that I have found.
