Just won a 15" Mountney wheel on eBay. Superb condition, vrtually as new. Trouble is when it arrived it only measures 14".

Setting aside for a minute my rights to return as the item is not as described, does any have a 14" fitted to their Series III with the standard set up. The steering is heavy enough with a standard wheel, I thought I may get away with a 15" - but a 14", surley this is a bridge too far......views folks please.

Many thanks,

i think you'll be struggling, be ok on the move but hard work parking an offroad in ruts, does depend what size tyres you're running though

The seller has agreed to provide a refund so now on the lookout again for a 15" Mountney.........

paddocks do them with the right boss for about 40 quid IIRC

Thanks but no body anywhere has them in stock, hence my getting one on eBay - 1 supplier told me this was because Mountney have lost the casting and are having to re tool - how true this I don't know.

Supposedly Land Rover have also lost a lot of tooling and drawings, hence why I'm struggling to find anywhere in the country the intermediate shaft thrust washers for a LT230R suffix A box :huh: think I've found some though so fingers crossed as mine are knackered

typical ;) luckily the Land Rover Orphanage have possibly found the last two in the country and they are now in the post. Think I'll produce some manufacturing drawings and see if I can get some commissioned through my friendly engineering company. Then see if anyone wants any made :)
