Early 110 middle seat back

Truthfully I only need one piece, part number 347863 which is a small diamond shaped plate approx 1" square with a nut welded on the back. This attaches to the bottom of the side of the seat backs on early trucks and a pin screws partially into the p,ate. This pin is the what the lock that's attached to the body grabs to keep the seat back upright. They're NLA and, while it would be easy to fab something up, I've put a lot of work into retrimming the seats and don't want to finish them with one half-ass piece I created.

I'll take the piece or the whole squab if needed.

Obviously I'm blaming the dog and/or the kids for misplacing the original piece when I pulled them apart for upholstery.
Thanks!
Tony

To be clear, it's a middle row seat back I need.
Thanks

Haven't been able to find one yet, they're marked as NLA everywhere. Would love to hear any ideas you have.

No, this is the nut plate that rivets to the bottom of the seat back. A shoulder bolt screws into the plate and that all secures the seat back into place in the spring loaded bracked. In the attached picture the nut plate is #1 and the shoulder bolt is #3

I did, but they claim it's not a valid part number. Granted, they don't even stock bearings or seals for Disco 1s any more, so I wasn't too surprised.

I'm starting to troll ebay UK for entire seat back squabs.

I checked and, yes, they are NLA from LR.

You won't see anything. Brit-Car is well known for leaving stuff on the website that does not exist.

Interesting. I've never had a problem. In my experience with Britcar, they have come up with bits that no on else had.

Well, Britcar had it, sent it and it got lost in the mail. They tried to get another and . . . NLA. Back to square one. I will say that they were really nice about trying to sort it out and the communication was super. Will try them again (but with the package being tracked).

So Britcar came through in spades. Found another one and got me excellent pricing on the parts I needed for the rear seat seatbelt installation plus a valve cover gasket and assorted other parts and had it all here in 3 days for nominal shipping. Couldn't be happier.
