    "Shrek the Second"

    ive been browsing this forum for a while so i decided i would finally post a thread about my rig. i bought it in december for a great price because it had "blown headgaskets". so i checked the oil and it was milky and i towed it home and ordered the headgasket and bolt set from atlantic british. after tearing down the engine in my driveway over the weekend, i had the heads sent out and machined/ rebuilt and they were ready to go by the next weekend. i put everything back together making sure everything was clean and spotless including the gaskets and threads and everything. torqued the heads to spec (holy ^$^*@# it was scary using a cheater bar on a breaker bar trying to get those 90* turns) and it was ready to fire back up. turned the key and vrroooommmm it fired right up..... but was steamy out of the exhaust and the engine oil was getting milky. apparently it had a slipped cylinder liner. which is weird because i did my best to check for cracks and slipped liners but i guess i missed it. so i got a junkyard engine and swapped it in (again in my driveway) and it was about an hour after that i drove it for the first time.

    its been an adventure but im loving it. im 19 years old and my first car was a 1970 vw baja bug and then i sold that and got a 94 zj 5.2L 4x4 and now i have a 98 disco. here are some pics of my old rides and the new one. i do all the work on my rigs and try and fab most everything i can cause its what i like to do






    now heres the rover

    Where were the pictures of your rover taken? Looks like Dishpan or Holcomb creek.
