After more than 60,000km on this set of BF Goodrich KO tyres we got our first puncture. Most likely from a sharp rock, I’d say prior damage from The Gibb River Road over the past few weeks.
This morning I noticed a slow drip coming from under the car. It was coming from the lefthand sill water tank weaping a few drops a minute.
After leaving home this morning we took the Landy over the weighbridge to see what we’re sitting on fully loaded.
So replacing the fuel pump turned out not to be the issue with the Defender cutting out when under load. Tomorrow we’re back on a tow truck and off to a Land Rover specialist. Unfortunately the cause is still unknown and I simply don’t have the test tools or know enough about this engine to narrow it down any further.
Fingers crossed it doesn’t end up too expensive to repair. We sure could have done without this especially with only a few weeks before our departure date.
