The question I have is, as I attached the drive flange (Part # 571711) to the hub, I realized that there seem to be nothing holding the axle shaft (Part # 576767) from sliding out on the rear...

    Fancy A Bit Of Modelling?

    As previously confessed, I do a bit of railway modelling when not fixing Land Rovers. On a railway modelling forum I frequent, we were discussing the fact that there are very few 1/76 or 1/72 scale models of civilian Land Rovers around, particularly the short wheelbase Series 2, 2A and 3...

    Series III - Rules concerning Seatbelts

    I've recently brought two Land Rover Series III 109 Santana Especials from Spain to France (a 1980 and a 1982). As I'm pretty sure the rules applying in the UK and France are now the same (ie. based on EU rules), does anyone know what the obligations are for these vehicles - or at least their...

    TD5 To Series III Bulkhead Conversion

    My bulkhead has reached the end of its life; in fact it should have been put down years ago! The top rail is totally shot, both foot wells are holed and rusted and at least one of the feet is seriously corroded.
