Couldn't you just mount it face in like a G wagon does?

Too much leverage on the studs welds

What are you talking about?

He has a 265 Duratrac on a Rover alloy wheel. Total weight should be under 75lbs. I bet just one of those posts on the tire rack would be enough to support that wheel/tire combo.

If the alloy lug nut bottoms out then add 3 steel lug nuts to the studs and space as needed.

And the build is coming along very nicely 86Defend110!

Offroading with the spare put face in? I bet not.

Steel lug nuts too small, you need washers but you won't have enough remaining thread anyway. Been there.

Bulkhead!!

Got some great news from Ashtree this morning!

This baby is finally on its way across the pond. I have basically been at a standstill on the truck without it...

Looks like it will work out good. With washers on I still have about a 1/4 of thread sticking out with the lugs tightened.

Humm must be why they are taking so long on my door order. Looks good. l'd like to hear how long it takes to deliver. I have a full set of doors coming from them.

The build looks great! I have been thinking about the 5.3 LS conversion my self. Looks like you put the manual transmission in. Did you run into any space issues fitting the tranny and the transfer case?

What tranny and transfer case did you use?

That's why I added that it is Finally on the way! They originally said 4 weeks and we are going on 10... I probably would have had the truck driveable if I had the bulkhead 6 weeks ago.

Painting...

Spent this weekend painting a lot of pieces parts with POR-15 and getting things ready for when the bulkhead arrives. Got the heater all put back together with a new blower motor and heater core.

Brake Booster

Cleaned up a brake booster and master cylinder I pulled out of a salvaged Disco 1. Put in new seals and a new brake light switch also.

Hi
Could you please tell me if these are the same manifolds you have fitted?
http://www.summitracing.com/int/part...1hkr/overview/
Would they fit OK with a 6.2 LS3 in a 90? I am in England so I need to get it right the first time as I cannot just nip round the corner and get some different ones. Is the LS3 block the same external size as your engine? if so they should fit. I am struggling with all the US parts as none of them are in any of my Land Rover parts books and I have zero previous experience of US or non Land Rover parts or using them.

Thanks Rob

Bulkhead!

Well it took a long time to get here from Ashtree but I finally got the bulkhead I ordered on February 16th....

It came galvanized with an etch primer on it. For good measure I roughed it up a bit and put POR-15 on it. I mounted a plate over the clutch pedal opening and enlarged the opening for the heater.

Finally can make some progress again now that the bulkhead is here....

What are your thoughts on the quality of the Ashtree bulkhead? I ordered two of them last year for projects and was tremendously disappointed in how poorly they were put together. Curious if they've gotten better.

This one seems to be done pretty well. The mounting holes lined up nice and the wings fit very well. I was worried about it being warped after galvanizing but that part seems to be fine. The only thing I can compare it to was my original that was completely rusted out.

The time frame was frustrating as they told me 4 weeks and it took 12, but I do know Jan was very sick with shingles....

Jesse, the build looks good. Can I ask what your plan is for the wiper motor as I see you cut out the larger opening for the heater box on the nice bulkhead?
