Look at the departure angle from the base of the rear tire to the bass of the rear crossmember. The X-Deflex doesn't encroach. The only way you'd hit it is if you dropped your ass on a boulder. That's a poor picture too. You can actually mount it to the fuel tank skid and tuck it up there rear tight.

That doesn't look bad in the pics. But why does the one side have such a curved bracket? Can you order with 2 straight brackets and then route the exhaust or whatever to work with it?

The curved bracket is for the stock exhaust. I am sure that if you emailed Si at X-Eng he'd supply two straight brackets. FYI, X-Eng has great customer service. When a bolt worked loose and I lost a part to it on the trail he sent me a new one free of charge.

You have to remember that this product is made/sold mostly for the UK market, Currie gear is not generally available and installing Anti-Rock isn't just 'bolt-on'.... a significant proportion of UK LR owners can't or simply don't have the time/equipment to make & build their own stuff. Add to that the complete lack of 'extreme' terrain that's open to wheel'in in the UK and Si's kit becomes a great option for a fair price.

BTW, Si's not selling direct now..... he moved that to Foundry 4x4 so he can concentrate on new product design.

Hey Ed,

I know that the crank on the serpentine belt engines has a longer snout, so you need a spacer going from serp to V belt, but I think you can do it the other way without too much trouble. The only issue might be that the crank is a little short inside the damper, then again, you could always have someone alter the damper or just run a spacer on the crank end.

I think for water crossings serp belt is the way to go, and the alt up high is a good idea, I say why not.

Thanks for the info Wolf. I am now torn between fabricating stuff to make Bucks arms work or just pony up for an X-Eng. But to be honest I am a long way out from either way.

Hey thanks for the response , I measured the snout on the two motors and and they appear to the same ? . Mark at D&D said that since both motors where 94s there might be a chance they are the same. It looks like I got lucky on this and will be able to simply swap over the early SERP stuff . It looks like the early 94-95 discos with CUX 14 might run the shorter cranks ? A few years ago I put a 95 disco motor in my daughters 92 RRC and used all her stock components with no issues . Ill post up my findings after my D&D cam lifters and timing set get here.

Excellent, if they are the same I think it will work out. I remember there being a difference but it might be only certain years, I am definitely no expert when it comes to rover V8s...

I just ordered another X-Deflex from Lucky8. Justin does have a few in stock. I also asked to see if he can supply another straight arm vice the curved arm for the exhaust.

Thanks Johnathan

I'm still on the fence with Currie or x-deflex , with time not in my favor and Justin having them in stock it might be the route I take.
