    Maybe not. There is a lot of dust building up on the last posting.



    People tell me I have a hybrid, though I tend not to think of my Land Rover as one.





    Everything is Land Rover except for 3 items:




    The Scout II power steering box,










    the fuel injected Ford 302,




    and the Borg Warner T-18 gearbox.




    Oppps! I almost forgot the very recent change, so make that 4 items:




    Front disc brakes!

    Other than that The Green Rover is just your average 2 door Land Rover Dormobile

    I am almost finished with the wife's SIIA 109, a standard three door with trop top. 3.9 liter Rover V8 with Holley 4V but otherwise stock, R380 5 speed and Range Rover 3.54 disc brake axles. Not much of a hybrid, but I have plans for another 109 on a LWB RR chassis.

    It sounds like it will be a nice rig when finished and any bugs worked out. A leaf sprung 110. But I am puzzeled by one thing.

    Why did you convert from EFI to a four barrel? I'm wondering because after almost 7 years of using a 4 barrel I went through a great deal of effort to covert my 302 to EFI. Is the LR EFI unreliable?

    My reasons ar as follows:
    1. better fuel mileage
    2. additional power
    3. Smoother throttle response
    4. smoother operation at steep angles
    5. Increased relability
    6. Instant fuel mixture compensation for altitude changes
