  1. It is 50 kg for an 8274, about half that for a low mount.
  2. Some good info on shocks and shock lengths here: http://www.heystee-automotive.com/parts/springs/shocktab.htm
  3. Sold for £6100. Looks like I bought mine at the right time.
  4. Ok, I was under the impression they were the same. In that case, you are probably ok. Daan
  5. Chaps, mr rattler is going to try, and make up his mind on what he thinks. We are comparing a zeus conversion with a heystee conversion and a rangerover setup, and think that is good comparison? Do we know how the caliper piston diameters compare? It could well be that the zeus conversion is using larger pistons and therefore is ok without a booster. So let's see how it pans out. I am more worried about the use of the same brakes at the rear as the front; This will result in too much brake bias to the rear, resulting in unplanned handbrake u-turns. I would investigate a brake pressure va
  6. If Mr bean was a builder... Are you going to keep it standard or is there a cunning plan? here some ideas for a decent engine: https://forum.retro-rides.org/thread/211498/reliant-kitten-estate-blackbird-powered?page=10 Daan
  7. It is ebay for me these days. The last time I tried to get something from my local supplier it was no cheaper and I really struggle with picking it up during office hours. Also, it is always someone in the north yorkshire who has what you want for some reason. Main thing to look out for is postage; you need to make sure what you pay is reasonable, and that is where the suppliers differ. Some has a fixed fee, which is bad for small amounts, but others have a sliding scale which is bad for large amounts.
  8. Sliding windows are the proper Land rover fitment, and the future in hot climates.
  9. Sold for £980. I wonder how long it takes before it is relisted this time around. What is wrong with people buying stuff on ebay?
  10. Sold for £5800, now relisted due to time waster: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274683950480?ul_noapp=true
  11. Anyway, do we all agree an intercooler is a good idea, because this has been a point of conversation in the past?
  12. I shipped the landy in a 20ft container to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2003 to compete in the Rainforest challenge. I got a carnet through my local chambers of commerce. Make sure the car is well strapped down. Also make sure you have marine insurance, as containers do go overboard in heavy wheather, and otherwise all you get is an apology of the captain (if you are lucky!), but nothing else. It took 3 weeks for the ship to get there. Our ship ran late, decided to miss KL completely, and drop of our container in Singapore. P&O, who sponsored the RFC did bend over backwards to
  13. This one sold a few weeks ago for about £800, but someone had 2nd thoughts by the looks of it. I suppose a dead engine and no V5 or keys would put me off too. And someone heavy sat on the back body: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mahindra-jeep-CJ340-willys-jeep-under-license/265044272581?hash=item3db5dea5c5:g:FKYAAOSwMaBgICkZ Daan
  14. This started cheap: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274666864286?ul_noapp=true Daan
