It's officially killing me... I wish North Carolina wasn't so long. I know Raub drove a long way, but I couldn't get the time to do eight hours each way for this trip. Looks spectacular

You guys need some cheese to go with your whine.

The slave cyl went out on the green 110. Had me pretty freaked out since I'm on an island and coming off on the last ferry of the day so we won't all be there to push her on. So in a 25 mph blow (picture a sand blast effect) I climbed under the truck and was able to remove it. We too it inside and disassembled it. I used sand and a wet finger to hone the bore of the cyl and boiled the piston and seal in the coffee percolator and cleaned very thing as best I could and put it back together using spray PAM as a lube and reinstalled it. It took a long time to bleed but I have a pedal again so not driving it until its time to go. Hopefully I can make it the 5hrs home in the dark on a Sunday night.

What's a Rover outing without someone's bonnet coming open!?
Doug I know you can shift without a darn clutch.

Was thinking just that - and with the diesel couldn't you get away with just using 2,3, & 4th gear?

Although I am sure it was one of those "I bet I can get that fixed using nothing". Nice job - and love the hone job with sand and a wet finger!

Truck is a 3.5 V8 w/4bbl edlebrock. The trans is a lt95. We tried reving the engine and sliping it into gear as the rpm fell, no love. Also tried starting it in gear in 1st low but also no joy (keep in mind we were in soft sand, ie a high range in gear start wasn't an option. The kluge didn't hold up and fluid was running out of the slave as fast as we could pour it in the master, the seal was done. The ferry operator ended up sending an unscheduled boat that only holds three vehicles and Raub dragged me on with a short strap. Once back on the mainland I pulled the slave again and we loaded my truck on Raub's car trailer and he towed my 110 while I drove his tdi Tithonus. We took the truck to the nearest Batozone in Moorhead City, 30 miles away. Fortunately there was an old school guy working. Of course they had nothing close to a rover slave cyl of any kind so we measured the piston of my slave and I asked him if he had any wheel cylinders with the same bore. He pulled up some random cars looking for the right specs and found that a chevy impala used a 7/8's bore wheel cylinder and he had one. I bought it for $9.45 and popped one of the pistons out and the plunger type seal behind it. I took my slave and flipped the internal spring end over end so that it fit inside the new plunger type seal (think of the plunger in a hypodermic) as opposed to the original type seal which was a ring seal in a groove on the piston. With the spring flipped I slid the seal in and then the wheel cylinder piston as well. Fit perfectly. I took my new kluge outside where Cabell and Raub had set up folding chairs under the shade of a huge live oak tree on the edge of the parking lot. I climbed under the 110 still on the trailer and got my frankenstein slave cyl installed and Raub helped me bleed it and we got a firm pedal. I backed it down, and Raub loaded up and headed South and Cabell and I drove 5 hours home with no further issues.

Aside from the slave excitement today, we all had an incredible time. We had a perfect group assembled, all members of this forum: Greaser Bob, Ezzzzzzz, Robert Davis, Cabell, Daddymow/Raub, and myself and our daughters.
No one wanted to leave, and Bobby didn't. He stayed on the island and we gave him all our left over food, coffee etc since the only thing the park service sells out there are ice and fuel. He's going to stay this week camping on the beach with his blue heeler- Sprinkles.

We all agreed we had a better time than we ever have @ an organized event.
Collectively we had been trying to pull together and do this for nearly 5 years now, I think we will all leap @ the chance to do it again.
I never even took the insect repellent out of the box. Mosquito's were a non issue for us.

Because of the wind!

Thought of you guys while driving down to NC yesterday. Bummed I could not make it like a lot of folks on here.

Doug - trust you will keep up on the outcome of the no vehicle rule, maybe if it doesn't pass we can do it in the fall.

We received a form that allows us to express our comments regarding the desire environmentalists have to shut the beach down to vehicle traffic that I haven't spent any time to analyze yet (more on this later).

I do intend to write my representative to push him to keep the beach open.
