    I'm impressed it still has the original check straps.

    As you know, there are very few S1's in the US. This might be a good resource and they have a forum as well: http://www.lrsoc.com/forum/

    Four wheel drive allows you to get stuck

    Original everything, 26k miles. Pure joy to wrench on or drive. A couple pics to show off; top of Goler wash with Rover Rondezvous and some rock art outside Apple Valley. As to the seals, I got the story and a pdf manual page from Peter at 3 Brothers - the job calls for a 20 ton press and a good hammer.
