I have just been to a local classic car meet and was talking to a Jeep owner who was trying to start his vehicle.
It would not start and he said he thought he may have burnt the coil out as he had left the ignition on for about 2 hours.
As i had 2 spare coils i fitted one on his Jeep in exchange for some beer tokens and he went on his way a happy man.
Will 3 hail Mary’s be enough to give me absolution or do i need to do more for my sins. :tic:
2 Thanks.

I think you need to stand in the corner and think about what you've done!

It's kind of satisfying to know that a J%%p had to be save by a Land Rover though.  :lol:
Is sarcasm a very deep sar??

What's wrong about helping a fellow enthusiast, don't forget the Land Rover heritage without the Jeep there probably would not have been a Series 1 Land Rover.
My mind works like lightning, one quick flash then it's gone.

Give yourself a good pat on the back
Helping a fellow enthusiast out, especially when you have plenty emergency spares is to be commended!

Now wash your hands quick to get the jeepey scent off them, otherwise the LR may start protesting!

Just think of the alternatives , you would have been obliged to use the tow-rope coiled around his front bumper or the latest obligatory fetish - the  "A" frame   ;D

If in doubt ...best confess. :tiphat:
Of course, that IWM film linked in the other day showing footage of  the WD comparison tests told us that Land Rover always had the gear the other lacked  :tic:

I think that you will have just invalidated the Jeeps gurantee by fitting none genuine OEM parts

If someone is in need we should offer help, unless of course it's a modern Beemer. Then they would need a rescue service, there is nothing a human can sort on one of them!

And, of course, if there's the slightest sprinkling of snow, they're backwards into the ditch anyway!
