1+1=1

Picked up another 110 this weekend with the hope that I can combine the parts from my '86 ROW 300Tdi 110 and the recently aquired '91 LHD converted UK spec 300 Tdi 110.

So now my shop is overflowing with rover parts and I'm ordering new chassis next week before starting down the assembly path.

The end result is intended to be a ROW configured 300TdI 110 SW in Arles blue.

So here is where it sits for the moment - Not able to do much on the truck at the moment with a new job and all the household stuff cluttering my shop until we move into our new place on the 15th of July.
  • New Chassis order goes in tomorrow
  • Safari Aux tank and door skin order goes in Monday
  • Misc Parts orders in by the 29th of June

Chassis on order, YRM parts on order, still need to source a few things:

Rear disc conversion parts order
Exhaust systems order
Long Range Safari Fuel and water tanks ordered

Spending a couple hours a week cleaning parts when I can spare the time, but overall progress has ground to a halt as I have almost no room to work until July 15th.

Got a little more demolition completed this weekend.

Old frame is out in the bone-yard if anyone wants bits from it. Made a support to hold the complete engine while doing the build, and finally I can start assembling instead of pulling apart rust-ridden bits of what used to be nuts & bolts... Oh, and I forgot but apparently while I grabbed some lunch the the rear output seal decided to remind me that it needs replaced.

Use a Dana 60 rubber seal instead of the stock leather one. I have never seen a salisbury not leak from the pinion.

As Ron suggested, use National Oil Seal 9316 or similar (available at Napa or http://www.amazon.com/National-Seal-...=Oil+seal+9316). Watch out for a scored pinion flange as that can be the cause of the leak.

------ Follow up post added August 14th, 2012 04:54 PM ------

Here's a thread where I talk about the scored flange and how to fix with a Speedi Sleeve:

Nicely done on the VIN stamping. Was that done by the Chassis builder or as a later add-on?

Oh.. whats YRM (acronym translater is failing me today)

Thanks. Indeed YRM was able to tuck quite a lot of parts into the crate between the frame rails.

I'm very much chomping at the bit to get working on the roller - but I need to spend a half a day cleaning up the shop from the last bit of demolition and the little bit of work I've done on the 90.

The crate left me with a truckload of kindling that needs a home as well.

Are my eyes deceiving me, or is that the longest chassis I've ever seen?

So far I like it. The parts all match up quite nicely and the material is stout and well formed. I haven't had a chance to work on the truck much the last week so I haven't done any more than the test fitting, but it seems like a simple fit. I've got a deep battery box extension that I can't decide if it want to install or not as it would interfere with chassis slung auxiliary fuel/water tanks.
