    Land Rover series 3 carb issues.

    Hi there, this is my first post. ?? I am restoring my old Land Rover series 3. I have had the engine running and after sitting in a shed for 12 years sounds great! (But only when my finger is over a vacuum/suction thing) I'm not sure how to post a photo about the thing I'm putting my finger over.. But basically it says "smith and sons" I was wondering if anyone knew what the smith and sons thing was and where the pipe needs to be to create the vacuum it needs to run smoothly? Any help would be great! Sorry for the complicated post! Tom.
  2. hello everyone i am curently restoring a 1960 series 2 (A Suffix) so far i have managed to get the tub off and repair all the the back end aft of centre cross member and replace the clutch. the bulkhead has been taken of ready for prep and weld however i have a few questions i hope some of you may be able to answer (i have attached a bulkhead picture for you to view) 1. what is the best way to repair/weld around the vents i was planning on welding against a brass block to fill in the holes 2. does any one know where i could get hold of a drain channel that sits on the front of the bulkhead between bulkhead and bonnet. 3. how do i identify the carb, i think it may be a solex but it doesent look exactly like any pictures i can find. and i dont think the engine is original finally i dont think the clutch is set right, when i tested it the slave cylinder blew its piston before the pressure plate was disengaged. when i removed the gearbox i removed the acuating bracket and rod so there may be a chance i refitted it 180 degress out where the actuating rod connects to the release bearing rod (hope that makes sense) ill try and find a picture from a manual later cheers for looking a new bulkhead is not an option will
