Re: Front brakes

They're clearly illustrated in your parts list, otherwise google the part number for a picture.

Re: Front brakes

If you just fit the probably missing wooden/fibre pads you might find they will be in the right place.

Re: Front brakes

Looks right.
Is your servo working so you're actually receiving peddle assistance?

Re: Front brakes

Did you adjust the screws that control the angle of the shoes and make sure the fibre pads (tips) were on the end of those screws?

Re: Restoration

RH manifolds are cheap and plentiful throughout the world, the opposite condition to LH. So if your RH will bolt up to the LHS... The flange ring on the engine pipe is a loose fit, so if all clears the chassis... One from a P6B could suffice however you would need a custom length engine pipe as the ...

Re: Restoration

Have you tried offering the RH manifold to the LHS? Potentially it's only the flange ring position that's different.

Re: Exhaust - Gear Box Crossmember

I went for the big member at the rear of the box which in factory format is scalloped to suit the exhaust regardless of model or market. The front pipes however pass over the detachable member below the bell housing. Either way you can't really get it wrong as the pipes won't stretch to an alternate...

Re: Bumper wanted

Early 110 uses the late Service III bumper - with crank hole. The actual 110 bumper is no crank hole. Defender changes to painted.
For the four plate mounting system, upper and lower plates are different, incorporating the kink.

Re: Bumper wanted

The earlier bumper has mounting brackets as part of the bumper. The later unit requires the four plates. I do wonder if the book has the numbers/dates around the wrong way.

Re: HCPU Fuel Tank

I wasted money on a BRITPART 599234 some years ago and could never get it to fit. The general format was correct. However the mounting hole sizes and the lack of effort to have the holes in the correct place was dismal. Holes in the reinforcing plate weren't even aligned with the panel they were wel...

Re: Getting it Running

I understand your logic but the usual practise is to get it running first, then perform the service. Having dealt with multiple cars from storage in the past few months, skipping the fuel tank altogether can be well worth while. Find a fuel tank from a lawn mower etc. and hang from the bonnet with f...
