I got the Defender brake tower and Tuff Stuff 2121NB master cylinder all mounted up.
A 1/2" spacer between the master and tower, a 3/8-24 clevis from speedway racing and bush the pedal pin hole from 12mm to 3/8".
I drilled the pedal from 12mm to 1/2" and bought a bushing from tractor supply. Cut to length and pressed into the pedal.

There is a market for the old rover drive line stuff. A lot of Series folks try to keep them original.

So don't just scrap them

Well I am glad you could get to that before me, so that I can copy it. Did you post pics in your build thread? If not feel free to put them in here (once again so I can copy it)

Yep and aside from the motor needing a rebuild the tranny and transfer case still worked great.

I have been travelling all summer (work, vacation and family stuff) so haven't been on in a while or gotten much accomplished. I did remove the drive train and electrical but need to do pics and post. I bought a 18 fuse, 21 circuit wiring harness from ezwiring.com. Cost 185+20 shipping. Such a better price than the other wiring kits and its well put together.

Here is the drivetrain out of the rover and all the electrical.

Not sure if it will work but ideally I want to fab up the 14 bolt parking brake line to the stock driveline brake handle.

Subscribed, I'm a sucker for vintage anything and this thing is awesome! I guess I guess I should wander into the Landy forum more often.

Ok I am gonna double post this (probably do the second in the general 4x4 section), but I am at the point of buying springs and wanted some opinions before pulling the trigger.

A couple stock numbers first and maybe unnecessary as for some reason the springs I am struggling with.

These are factory numbers and will obviously be a little different with the 14blt and dana 44 but here goes.

Stock:
Front Unladen weight 1640 lbs (loaded 1828 lbs)
Rear Unladen weight 1313 lbs (loaded 2625 lbs)
Front springs 36" (pin centered)
Rear Springs 48" (pin centered)

Most current thinking is:
- stock Jeep YJ (1987-1996 Wrangler) rear HD springs front and rear as the SOA will give plenty of lift. These are 45" (22 11/16" x 22 11/16") 6 leaf and have a 1080 load capacity. This is a little less than the stock max load in the rear and a little shorter but I don't see loading it that heavy ever. Part of the thinking here is that these springs are very easy to come by from many retailers and many options for lifted heights if needed.

Another option is:
- Front 2.5" superlift 1977 Chevy k20 springs (pin centered), again can be run front and rear. These are 4 leaf and have 1400 lb capacity. Lift height should be good as they are originally a spring over design unlike the YJ springs. Downside is not as easy to get from places if replacement needed but still not too difficult or expensive (summitracing).

Alternate option for rear, is to run one of above on front and run one of these on the rear:
- 47" Jeep SJ (wagoneer, Cherokee) front 7 leaf (22 1/2" x 24 1/2") 1335 load capacity. This isn't hard to get but not as easy as the YJ springs in stock configuration.

or

-52" 1977 K10 rear springs. 6 leaf (centered pin) 1875 lb capacity, but will need leaves removed as it would be way to stiff. Again not too difficult to find but only from spring suppliers.

I am planning on being able to wheel this but not going for hardcore rock crawling, so good flex is desired but max flex is not the ultimate goal. Also I am looking for something a little better priced and available than the typical using the stock LR rears on the front as well. It was originally considered but I think its ruled out at this point.

Thanks for the help. Sometimes I think I try to over think things but oh well.

Went with the 6 leaf HD yj springs for all 4 corners for now.

This sounds like it's going to be a great rig, any updates for us? How's it going there?

Unfortunately no real updates yet. I have been learning how to weld while waiting on the motor. Just enlarged the tunnel opening so motor/tranny will fit but fitting the drivetrain is waiting on the motor. Outside of that I got my custom gauges and a couple other items.
