Re: Restoration

Hi Cliff. Nice write up on your axle build. To help with your swivel CV Clearance. The problem you have highlighted is due to 2 reasons .. The first LR had this problem with all Stage ones. Early Range Rover and early 110... which they later addressed by changing the outer diameter of the CV joint t...

Hi All, We have just manufactured a small batch of uprated front half shafts. We made them from 300m Alloy and heat treated them to add strength and still maintain the flexibility needed in drive shafts. Sold as a set so one LH and one RH shaft to suit the original 10 spline diffs. https://www.desig...

Re: Bonnet locks

Unfortunatly the locks inside these are not the same as the land rover version and we have manufactured them in a different way to make them more robust so they dont fail due to water ingress. They are not a land rover barrel. All the locks are keyed to differ and supplied with 2 keys. Hope this helps

Bonnet locks

We have just finished manufacturing the Stage One bonnet locks. A part which has been obsolete for years. Ours are made from stainless steel which has been polished to give the same appearance of the original chrome plating but being stainless makes them much more durable. https://www.designdevelopm...

Re: Heater control valve... again

We have just resurrected our upgraded stage one heater control valve project which we first looked at over 18 months ago.

Hi All. A bit of a update to this thread. I have just produced the first swivel housing kit. The modifications to a standard series swivel is not as straight forward as people believe as it is not just a matter of machining the internals for clearance on the CV but we also had to change the top / bo...
