    Rattler and son 1971 S11a swb Restoration

    Only in roof where the old lining was, nothing planned for the engine bay think its a waste of time and money to be honest. Was looking for something else and came across the spring so thought i would put it to use as i have seen what happens when them coiled springs on the pumps let go, not good.

    preferred brand for seals

    Paddocks Britpart swivel kits are very good Teflon swivels with BP bearings, seals, bushes and stuff, used them on both my series 2a's and Def90 in the past infact I have fitted one to the 2a I am restoring now although the series kits don't use Teflon swivels but never had a prob with any of them

    Yeah i was hopeing to get more done but spent most of the day fitting the rear door as i think the van sides i bought last year from billing was from an hard top fitted with a tailgate then who ever had them before me drilled the holes to fit a back door in the wrong place as they was about 1/2 an hole out so i had to keep filing the holes out and fitting the door till i got it right, but i got there in the end.

    Replacement seats

    Yeah I think they was originally going to call the 90/110 a S4 as well which I think would have been better being as they was still running the same 4 cylinder engines and I think very very early ones still had the series 3 gearboxes fitted

    Series 2a diesel fuel tank to lift pump fuel pipe

    Thanks Dave, its just that I remember removing the feed pipe when I stripped the 2a down but can't think of the life of me where I have put it, I do have a parts catalogue which shows the fuel tank, sender, stack pipe and return stack pipe but doesn't show the feed or return pipes so it looks like I will do as you have said and go to my local motor factors 😉

    Replacement seats

    Yes I think they would be, I to am looking at fitting new seat in my series 2a rebuild was going to fit Mazda RX8 seats in the front but after measuring where the seats will go there just isn't enough leg room, shame as they are a really good seat as I had them in my 90 but as they won't fit the 2a I am now going to fit the Exmoor trim hi back seats instead. Mite need to ask this ? on the Defender forum as well as this is the series forum
