  1. I have/had a 1986 110 2.5 na which I put a 300tdi defender engine into. Used the LT77 by cutting the center out of the 110 flywheel casing allowing me to bolt the 300 to the LT77 and no bolts left out. Cutting out the center lets you use the 300 seal on the output shaft. Made up a down pipe from 2 x 90 degree bends welded together. one engine mount will work ok the other needs made. Doing it this way no props needed to be changed the gear and trans levers stay the same. If yours is not a galvanised chassis you have this option. Good Luck
  2. Mmmmm nice. UK made certainly works for me for sure.
  3. It's funny you mention led's. I was toying with the idea of day running led's on the 110 to let people know I was on the way down the road and there would be a good chance I wouldn't get stopped on a sixpence. 😜 I'll have a look at the Terrrafirma stuff in more detail, might even phone. Dixonfab came across it yesterday and I'll get a better look at their stuff tonight. Thanks for the help.
  4. Had a look at Gwynn Lewis site some very good gear. Thanks, but no axle guards might plump for the drag link guard though. I would concider decent second hand stuff as long as it is straight and complete. Proving really had to find what I am after.
  5. Hi to all. I hope to be 90 owner soon so I was looking for some underbody protection. Big fan of South Down stuff (110 already sorted front steering guard, front axle guard and rear salisbury slider fitted) but they don't do their stuff any more. So can anyone point me in the direction of that type of stuff, would prefer it all came from one vendor. Is anyone on here making this sort of stuff? I done the searches and came up blank so fingers crossed. Regards Mark.
  6. We believe you for sure. LOL
  7. OMG I have a box here in N.I. jumping out of reverse had considered having it repaired, or perhaps not. I wonder could I get a government grant to set up an LT77 recon outfit. It wouln't take as much as some other business incentives aided by "government" here in N.I.
  8. Guys if it's not being cheeky what's the cost of a recon LT77?
  9. Thank you. And very well explained.
  10. Don't laugh Will a series 2/3 roof, rear door and sides fit a 90. I really don't know.
  11. Hi blue speedo gear drive in a 1;2 transfer LT77 ,265/75/16 at 60 on the clock is 55 on the sat nav. I can live with that in these days of speed cameras.
  12. Hi. When the slave cylinder is removed you should be able to see the end of the rod. Yes you could try and fish the rod end up to the hole but I'd be surprised and happy for you if you get it poking out. I picked up a tip from this forum to cable tie the rod in/on the end of the arm that sits inside the bell housing. Good luck.
  13. Just thought I'd throw this out there, so is an LT77 that pops out of reverse worth getting fixed. With me being located in NI a stumbling block and maybe costing. I'm running an LT77 on a 300 tdi so a spare would be nice. Anyone on here who does gearbox overhauls?
  14. That looks ok, it won't matter what you go for its going to be plastic. I would like the heater controls back lit. I think TD5 are, mmmm nice.
  15. Just a thought if the engine is still on the hoist check the splines on the clutch plate center for damage, had that happen once and engine would not engage with gear box because of damaged splines. I was lucky enough to have a spare clutch plate.(slight filing should help). Good luck
