Head Gasket

Dear New Friends;

I can not figure out how to set up my email client - Outlook Express the
right way to work with Newsgroups. I can't find (is it called a "thread" )
the little section I am communicating to you about without doing a search
and looking for "head gasket" and then clicking on the individual messages.

The "thread" isn't showing up in the section of headers for some reason.
So, can you guys (and gals) copy me on email as well as to the group with
any of the replies you are posting to the topic
"head gasket" that you are helping me with?

I must say I am completely astonished at how much FREE help is available to
any who wish to look for it via a NEWSGROUP. Why I have never looked into
them before concerning my (much much much more pricey) high end ski-BOAT
and its repairs I do not know.

Thank you landrover fans. I will attempt to find out for you more specifics
on the Rover I own. I will look at the title.
Try (yet again) to get in touch with the previous owner. When I get it to
the shop, I am certain they will know what the engine is and is not. And I
do have a picture of it I might be able to figure how to attach to one of
these email messages.

Respectfully;

Stacy Masiero

DON'T attach anything to postings to newsgroups, unless you're posting
to a binaries newsgroup. Doing so will get some of the locals pissed,
and won't be seen by quite a lot of us as properly set up news servers
will strip any attachments.

Hi Stacy,
There are some ancient traditions here in UseNet, and one of the no-no's
is to post "binaries" (ie a picture) to a "text" newsgroup - ie this
one. Its fine to post a LINK to a picture like this though....
http://www.thetaylorfamily.org.uk/bobpics/side.jpg - usually stuck on
your webpages or one of the free picture folks.

You might enjoy this "read"

Hi Stacy just to show the spirit of Sherlock Holmes lives on since in your
original post you told us that the mechanic had suspected one or both head
gaskets having blown we can establish it is a V8 ( so far as I can tell
there was no export program to the US for diesel rangies) as it is a 93 it
cannot be a 3.5 its a classic so its not going to be a 4.6 so that leaves
either a 4.0 or 4.2 and in case I am barking up entirely the wrong tree try
http://www.roverparts.com/How_to_Identify_Rover.htm
for the engine numbers to tell which it is

Thank you Steve and Mr. Mike.
But I think I already violated the netiquette rule before I saw your email.
But, to show you my improvement, I will NOT attach the picture I am havin
a blasted time trying to figure what the sam hill it is from the DVD disk I
have on the RANGIE
I have.

So, my need: towing my broken girl to a shop just around the corner - 5
miles max.

situation - its ready - everything in neutral - bypass switch - key in
position 1, correct tow-strap

my dillemma: How - without renting a tow-truck (its 5 miles for Pete's
sake! )

Where does the tow strap hook-up? Not the lashing eyes as Derek pointed
out.

To the chassis underneath, where the holes are - ok - but I can't find a
shackle that is that wide.

So - Landrover's solution is on page 7, "Information" of the Introduction on
the right side of the page (picture RR2026E) of the "Range Rover Workshop
Manual 90-94 Pub. # LHA WM EN A02)

Lashing eyes will be fine for a gentle tow on the road. It's recovery (as
in stuck in 8ft of mud) that they should not be used for.

However, there are restrictions on how far/fast you can tow a Rangie, due to
the 4wd setup. I used to know (gettin' old) but someone who does will be
along in a moment. There's a fuse you might need to remove.

According to the manual, once the xfer box is in neutral, then its safe to
tow, be it manual or auto

Si

Sure. I was thinking (bit rusty, don't do it often) of the BW box with
viscous coupling. Splash lubrication not enough if the autobox isn't being
driven.
