  1. Hello Steve, I didn't mention the reasons for switching to > 1980 axles (ends). -Uniform bearing size (only one size). Easier to carry spares. -Better oil seals. -Oil catchers. -Thicker stub axle tube. I have just measured the flanges on my old pre 1980 stub axles. Rear stub axle flange: 10 mm. Front stub axle flange: 8 mm. The stub axle tube are the same length. Does anyone know the flange thickness of > 1980 stub axles? Thanks and regards, Justus.
  2. Hi, I'm rebuilding my 88 axles. I need new stub axles, the old are to much pitted to reuse. Now that the whole thing is taken apart, i would like to take the chance to convert to > October 1980 axles. This means that i need: 2* front stub axles FRC3925 at +/- 250 GBP 2* rear stub axles FRC3924 at +/- 35 GPB This is an enormous price difference. So much so that i consider converting rear stub axles to front ones. Differences between front and rear stub axles that i know of: 1- The rear hubs are wet (axle oil is able to travel freely from the casing to the wheel bearings), the front has an oil seal inside of the stub axle. 2- The rear stub axle mount over the axle casing. The front mount against and in the swivel pin housing. There is a "ring" to the stub axle that fits inside. So basically to convert a rear stub axle to a front: -remove the lip on the rear stub axle. -machine and attach a ring which fit inside the swivel pin housing -create room for the oil seal on a lathe (or run wet hubs). Is this correct? Has anyone done this before? Regards, Justus.
  3. Hmmm, you could very well be right, but lets hope not it would be a very good solution for a second alternator. And the most ideal side of the engine as well. Has anyone got an idea how to mount a second alternater to a 2,25 petrol then? And, wich part do i need for that solution?
  4. Hi, I hope some of you have a lightweight parts manual. For my project 88" s3 I`m looking to put dual alternators on the engine block. These will feed separate circuits; anyway; I need brackets to hold the second alternator above the original. I think I've found the solution in the alternator brackets used on a 12 volt petrol lightweight. But since I have a civilian 88 I don't have the lightweight parts manual, and cant find it anywhere online (aint' gonna buy something for two part numbers). Can someone supply me with the part numbers? I would be very grateful. I've attached a few pictures of what brackets I'm on about. Thanks, cheers, Justus!
  5. Thanks! But its not mine actually. Found the build online, it is indeed a nice rebuild of a 12 volts LW. You will find the photos here: http://www.land-rover-lightweight.co.uk/US%20Rebuild%202.html

  7. Hi, I,ve found the sollution: http://www.mm-4x4.com/complete-stainless-s...trol-2889-p.asp Not cheap, but a very good and lasting alternative!
  8. Hi, In my 88" I`ve replaced my old 2,25 petrol for a 2,5 petrol. But now I`m facing the exhaust. I have the original 90 exhaust, but I`m told that would not fit. The 2,5 has a larger diameter compared to the 2,25 exhaust. I would like to keep the larger dia. (and therefore not use the 2,25 exhaust). I also would fancy a stainless system Does anyone have a sugestion? Thanks for the Netherlands, Just Stegehuis.
  9. Hi I've decided to buy some stamps. The stampes need to match the old ones. These are 6.5 to 7 mm high. This is an example how they look like. Anybody any suggestions where I can get some? Cheers, Just.
  10. Well I've got back a reply from the DVLA. They telling me to contact the nearest Land Rover dealer (I think they mean in the UK). When I now the good VIN they could "help" me. Not a very clear answer.... Does it mean; at a Land Rover dealer they restamp the VIN in my chassis? Is this a normal thing the dealers do in the UK? In the Netherlands only the goverment can restamp VIN's, so I'm a little confused...... Cheers, Just. PS, I've attached a picture of my 88" so we know what where talking about!
  11. Hi, Someone have an idea where i can buy a genuine strap assembly for the spare wheel on the bonnet of my s3? Including brackets would be top class. Cheers, Just.
  12. Hi, I've just send a question to the DVLA about this. When they agree with your opinion (that its legal to restamp the VIN yourself). I will weld an othee spring hanger bracket on the chassis and restamp the VIN. Dutch authorities then HAVE to give the Land Rover a dutch license because of EU rules. We will see. Just.
  13. The number stamped on the chassis is from a 109" (the spring hangers have clearly been rewelded), the number on the aluminum plate in the car and on the papers (V5) is from the original car (88"). I've send the old owner a letter (1,5 month ago), but he hasen't responded yet. On the internet there wasn't much to find about him. He's called George Micheal King so I only get George Micheal hits. I'm hoping to vind a hassle free solution for this. Just.
  14. Hi, A VIC sound like the thing to do. Do I need to be in the UK for the check? And is it a EU certified service? Thanks for the info! Just.
