Some of you don't know who Bill Cox is, so I'll fill you in..
He's a registered importer of Minis in the US and I happened to come across him in the Land Rover forums. He has one of the few sets of tools needed to change the timing belt on Land Rover FreeLanders as well as the Haynes manual that goes over the specialized engine that is not available in the US.
While our conversation started with how to post tools on AST, we delved into how the crankshafts on these suckers break, how if the cranks don't kill the motor, the headgaskets fail early, as well as the ridiculous amounts money needed to buy parts for these vehicles within the US and how he has been able to make it affordable for enthusiasts all over the world.
He also has contacts overseas that enable Land Rover owners to get parts CHEAPER than here in the US...
Join me in welcoming Mr. Cox (username werewolf) to the site. Thanks!
His equipment shall be available for rent on AutomotiveSpecialtyTool.net within a week or so.
