Re: Replacement brake servo

I've just looked a bit further at this & the STC1816 is the standard Series 2/3 6" servo. where the V8 (or mine is) has an 8" diameter servo. The type 50 is also 8" & discussed here: http://www.expeditionlandrover.info/dual_brake_conv.htm I'm not to keen on making the brakes w...

Replacement brake servo

What are folks doing for brake servos?

Suffice to say AEU1043 is not leaping out of the internet at me.

Will a Type 50 STC2878 (early 90/110) with the pedal end modified do the trick?

Re: Front brakes

That’s another good question.
I’m comparing back to back with the 4 cyl shoes & drums so I don’t see the servo as a factor at the moment.
Those adjuster bolts are rusted & seized so I might cut them off/drill & tap a new thread to insert stainless bolt & lock nut.

Re: Front brakes

So, I've finally put on the 3 inch shoes and drums. What a difference! - its shite! I was expecting them to take a few miles to bed in but I've done 300miles with some hard braking & "stoppies" to little avail. I removed the drum to inspect and was expecting to see a bit of uneven wear...

Re: Wanted: Exhaust Manifold

Well, they are somewhere in my lock up which is about 120 miles away and I'll only be back there in early November.

They are part of a job lot of parts I bought from a dismantled V8.

Re: Swivels

According to the Alicerover thread he machined down the drive flange a little to the circlip to seat in the 110 CV joint. I'm guessing this is what the DDR kit has. Can one simply swap the whole swivel housing - from the 6 bolted flange outwards - from a Defender/110 on to the Stage 1 front axle, in...

Re: Front brakes

In a recent job lot of V8 parts I bought there a 2 sets of back plates which are the same as the ones I have and some drums. The difference I’m on about is in the profile of the drum. The 4 cyl drum has a chamfer on the edge where the V8 one has a square edge With the o/a depth of the drums being th...
