Strange Series 2 LWB fittings


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I was looking  at a series 2 LWB earlier, any ideas what these fittings (not  just the hooks) were for? One each side and a servo looking thing attached to the inner wing ?

Thanks Angus

I'm guessing the thing on the wing is a remote servo, probably for brakes?

No idea as to the pipes on the sides. Fire engine thing?

Remote servo on the wing. The pipes above it appear to have been bridged to complete the brake circuit. There should also be a vacuum feed between the servo and inlet manifold.

Overhaul kits are available for the remote servo from classic car parts suppliers.

Servo can also be used for clutch where the driver has a leg injury etc.

The servo is very old and in my opinion not worth rebuilding, new are circa £70.

I too would replace rather than overhaul.  MG hive sell a 1 to 1.9 servo that works well on land rovers, they are on ebay.

I would also move it, being fried by the exhaust cant do it any good.  They fit well on top of the footwell on either side.  Mine is next to the matser cylinders but I have to take the wing off if there is a problem. (My wings can be off in 10 minutes).

Another option with less plumbing is the LOF clutch slave cylinders - fitted one to the 109 as it was only a few quid more than a standard one, and WOW has it made a difference!
