    bringing a neglected series back to life

    The Relay has no gearing, it just relays the angular rotation through the chassis and through 92 degrees. It's a simple bar made from a variety of materials. Strong steel if you buy genuine, cheese if you buy from a brand that rhyme with Git. G.

    Rattler and son 1971 S11a swb Restoration

    I agree, having gotten the bumper redone, I regret not having done the bumperettes. I think I'll be getting a second trip to the galv plant. I'll be getting the axles zinc sprayed, one of these days. . . G.

    I don't like rust.

    series 2a clutch issue

    Clutch plate is different, I think, and the 2a petrol clutch is different to the 2a diesel, if I recall. The cover is probably different, too. I don't know about the flywheel, though. It's time to dig out the parts books.

    Ah, cool! I've galved mine. But they were the original supports, and so are a bit corroded along the base, not like yours. G.

    They stainless, or galv?
  7. Don't forget the breather hole, and be certain to wash out the interior after blasting. Can you get the axle hot zinc sprayed?
  8. I'll be doing similar for my lightweight. I'm strippng the axles completely, and covering all holes and threaded studs with plywood and heavy wall pipe. In other words, I'd not risk it.

    Recaro cross sportster seats

    I've not fitted these, but in general seats with high bolsters on the base cause issues with steering wheel clearance. Few aftermarket seats fit without modification. Would the fancy expensive seats from Exmoor be acceptable? They look very nice, and you know they'll fit. Elite MKII. I've not looked up how expensive they are, on the grounds that my otherwise healthy heart couldn't cope with the shock, but I'm sure you would fully sate your urge to throw money at your truck. Should you wish to spend less, then seats from Smart Cars are are a good fit, or so I'm told, and available in the Americas. Much cheaper, allowing you to spend money on a huge V8 which will cost you a mere 30p a gallon to run (jealous). Kind regards.

    Floppy Gearshift, Getting Into Gear Hit and Miss

    Great news, and it sounds like good service from Ashcroft. Well done G.

    Clunky gearbox

    Yes, it's a dry adaptor, it worked so well with the R380 that JLR used the same technique for the 6 speed (sarcastic). Still, it's keeping Dave Ashcroft in business, there's a modification kit on their website. G.

    Good dust mask ?

    3m adflo for me. Bloody expensive, but steel in the eye is bad news, and messes up MRI scans.

    Headlights not working

    As the 6 position switch is unique to military vehicles you might have more success asking in the military forum. Having said that..... Do you have 12v (or 24v if FFR) coming into the headlamp stalk? Do you have 12v (or . . . ) coming out of the 6 position switch? G.

    Spare wheel carrier play in joints

    Would brass or bronze washers be better? not too difficult to get made locally. G.

    U-Pol Raptor Chassis

    That's interesting, and disappointing. I'm trying to get away from the annual waxoil routine, so the search goes on for the apply once, and forget, solution. Can you get line-x for diy application? G.
