Cornish Rattler

Rattler and son 1971 S11a swb Restoration

Recommended Posts

Finished off stripping the bulkhead down today and covered it up outside out of the way to give me a bit more room in the garage, I also met Romahomepete and his son as he came to collect the 2a engine I had advertised in the for sale section which was nice to see another forum member as we chatted about our landy's and help out a fellow member in need of a part ( engine ) I didn't need ;)

Whilst I was cleaning my log burning stove out ready for winter I decided to get the 2a rolling chassis out and do some better pic's rather than seeing it in the garage all the time :)

I think all the Marsland chassis are supplied with the TD5 rear crossmember and have that hole for the tow electric socket.

Defs have the td5 rear X member on all chassis but this is the S2a chassis with a std rear X member but as you say the hole is for an earlier plug socket which I vaguely remember mainly on S1's and early S2a's

Cheers Arjan, yeah I need to order the rear 24 spline half shafts and flanges and a couple of other things for now just to finish off the axles off plus fill up with oil aswell then move onto the steering next month as sons wedding is slowing me down ATM, the sale of the 90 paid for the wedding but I still have other stuff to sort out for the wedding for myself as the wedding is in Cyprus

Hi Cornish, you are such a polite guy and I'm such a p*&&^%$. I know it's a Series but don't know why I referred to a Defender!

It's looking great by the way.

They was fitted before the universal socket came out and is also the reason the wiring loom between the o/s rear lights to the tow plug needs extending as the original loom just went to where the old style socket was fitted although newer replacement looms probably now cater for the later plug normally fitted around the tow ball area.
