    Stainless are great for floors, seatbox, wings,ect.Packs available from Ebay that have new stainless clips in them. If the main rails are pretty good then repair the chassis.Replacement out riggers are available. The nearside wing is series...

    Just amazing the cobble up jobs some morons will do and often spend more time doing it than a proper job,and often it's not that the parts are costly either.:rolleyes:

    The 19j block is much the same as a the 10j block. I have heard of some who extended/adapted engine mounts [metal block] to gain the clearance needed.

    An old bearing outer race with an angle grinder split in it makes a good tool for seating the new race's and oil seal.

    A lot of heat from the engine bay passes down the trans tunnel and the gearbox and transferbox can get quite hot. Check oil levels in both.

    Is the insulating silver back foam still under the panel ? Mind you I have seen some with and some without.

    The engine will have been petrol. The slant angle door shows it is an 80 inch model.Condition of what can be seen looks pretty good,the bulkhead looks well restoreable .Let us know more when you can.

    At least then you can use a standard early 2/2a exhaust system.

    It would not have had those series 3 wings when new if it was military or civilian. Some one perhaps even the MOD may have put those wings on for damage repair prior to disposal. But equally could have been fitted post service.

  12. tottot replied to the thread 2a or 3.

    If it is working well as it is I would leave as is. Parts for the later engine are more available,series 3 box will be all syncro [ 2 only on 3rd 4th ] If you want a serious show vehicle then change back but for every day use best as it is. As...

    This would be an 88 series one so just need standard 88/2.25 mounts. The exhaust manifold may need changing to the type that exits through the wing and passes down in front of the foot well.

    Not all Landy's in military service were to military spec, some basic civilian spec ones were purchased for " base " duty's. Yours looks to be a standard late 2a model except for the series 3 wings.

  15. tottot replied to the thread Can you make a 2a box all syncro?.

    Fit a series 3 box is simplest way but it is possible to fit a 3 box with the bell housing clutch release system [ which was a better job ] from a 2a box.
