    Td5 110 towing assembly: which type?

    My ex RAF td5 110 is missing the height adjustable plate and tow hook. I am trying to work which one it is, I do not think it is an actual Landrover one or is it LR007221? Any guesses please? I presume the actual towing attachment would have been a NATO hitch? Thanks

    Door locks failing after door refurb

    Gents, You gotta love (or hate) landy's, especially for those of us who are weekend mechanics. I have an '89 110 and I sought to tackle the rusty door bottom problem. With the help of a friend, I cut off the rusty piece, which included the bottom hole of the lower hinge, and welded on a new...
