    fitting transmission brake

    One spring fitted feed shoes over drive flange, with them loosely behind the flange fit second spring spring. Yes on the back. You should now be able to fit top shoe ends into expander and adjuster. Now use tire lever or similar to lift other shoe ends into place.

    2008 110 xs utility strip down advice

    Should have been clearer with "roof off". When I did mine I left the sides on the roof and lifted at the rear pivoting the lot on the screen hinges. Fence posts held up the rear. @dag019's pics should help OP to decide if capable of capping renewal.

    2008 110 xs utility strip down advice

    Yes it is the steel parts that will have suffered. I guess the wrap may have cracks that have let water in or it has come from the inside. Depending on what capping's/pillars are like when wrap is removed. [were they covered?] then if just surface rust it can be removed/treated ect. Even if...

    2008 110 xs utility strip down advice

    Interesting, a long term vinal wrap. What will be the effect after many years? Body capping's are riveted on but can be replaced, drilling out and re riveting on new ones. Roof off though. B posts can also be fitted in similar way, however getting them right is critical for fit operation of the...

    Removable cross member MAER chassis

    @ArtherJob 1 No to the second part above. It was to prevent engine rev's from changing in an unwanted way when pulling up the hand brake or letting it off. Both hand brake and throttle are worked by link rods and movement of engine transmission would affect both. Later mounts were made stiffer...

    Series 3 Gearshift Jammed in Neutral on S3

    Yes one can usually find a gear or two with clutch out, engine off and at a stand still but given your stick will only move a small amount I guess other issues as noted in posts above. First thing out with floors and tunnel to view selectors on the top of the box. Britannica restorations and...

    I need some help with my 1994 Defender 90 300TDI Engine

    HI, A compression test will give a good idea of how worn engine is but given it is a heavy breather probably one or more pots blowing past. However even then they usually still run. [ my old 19j still ran even with four cracked pistons, two all the way across.] probably rebuild time.

    Do I really need to take the gearbox out to do the clutch release bearing?

    I have done the job as above when I knew it was just the release bearing that needed changing.

    Series II - Spare Wheel on Bonnet... HOW?!

    My 2a had an additional steel ring that went on top of the wheel rim with just one hole for the locking post, clamps then held the lot down. When young and foolish used to go rabbiting/fox shooting at night sat in spare with just a sack for comfort. On one one occasion while chasing a fox...

    Presume with bulkhead you mean the lower bits we have not seen. YRM metal solutions have many Defender replacement/repair panels available. [Stay on this forum for info like this]

    Galvanised chassis, tidy bulkhead nice, Basic mechanics. Body not bad for a 30 year working truck. Will tow a Renault no problem. [If still doing that] If you want to have a hard top instead of the hen house it is just a bolt on job. [also need a rear door] Those old 7-50's while fine off...
