At some point I hope to remember that and do the swap as the brake lines are still on the runner. I think the set of stainless flex lines I bought for my 90 already had them on. But these didn't unfortunately.

Just 94/95 NAS 90 brake brackets. From my research the 97's have different brackets and hard lines as they have Railco bushings on the tops (vs roller bearings like the 94/95).

With my setup I was going to use the old ABS sensors and cut the wires off to plus the hole of the Railco. But the ABS sensor would hit the larger Toyota CV. To save a few bucks off the SS brake line kit and plug up the ABS sensor hole I got the 94/95 style and used these bracket with a little bit of Right Stuff in between. I really wish I had gotten the non-Railco style swivels in the first place but didn't know at the time.

I got some items done this weekend.

Pic 1 - EGR plate on intake manifold
Pic 2 - EGR plate on exhaust manifold. This needed a little playing around with. I used cooper gasket seal on both.
Pic 3 - pic of thermostat - I had some polish and a cloth wheel and did a couple of pieces up. It was more of a PITA to get the grease/grim off than to polish. I think paint would have been more work. Hope it stays like this for a little while. I also got a new rubber hose which definitely needed to be done.
Pic 4 - backside of thermostat
Pic 5 - front of the motor right now.

I have a bunch more things to do:

Raditor/Oil Cooler/Intercooler
- I am torn on what to do. I can get one of those 200/300tdi radiator with built in oil cooler for just over $200. Not sure the quality as I think they have the plastic side panels and made by BritPart. Or RN has a radiator/oilcooler/intercooler if I decide to intercool the turbo. I am still trying to figure out if it is worth it. I suppose I could just use the stock 2.5 radiator and get a Merc oil cooler and stick it someplace but the Land Rover radiator seems to be easier - all I will need to worry about are the oil/radiator lines (and intercooler if I go that route).

Fuel Supply
- I need to start ordering fuel tank items like brackets and sender. I think running the fuel line and return lines on the left side will be the best way as all those items are on the left side of both the motor and the tank.

Clutch/Pressure Plate/Release Arm
- Not sure what to use on this. Stock 200tdi stuff? Or go 130/HD items. Should I reinforce the release arm?
- Robert - what torque specs did you use on those M10x1.0 allen bolts? The Mercedes manual has 40NM but those bolts have that tappered shape. A general torque number I have for an M10 12.9 bolt is 57 lb/ft. Should I use that figure instead?

Intake/Air Filter/Blowby can
- I think I will end up getting a cone filter and try and get it so it ends up in away from heat. For the blowby off the valve cover I have the stock air canister and will cut the insides out and use it as is. Just need to figure the tubing/hose to get it to dump back into the pan.

Valve adjustment
- I got the wrenches/new gasket and how-to last week. I might attempt this, this week. Going to polish up the valve cover too.

Not sure years of the axles just that they are the Disco I's.

Front Toy 3rd is a HP open I think it is from a Fjz80. Rear is an e-locker from a V6 iirc. There is a page with all the Toyota 3rd and the differences: http://home.4x4wire.com/erik/diffs/

I've been reading some on the disco axle swaps and can't seem to find the why it's done. Lots of how it's done but no definitive why answer.

Why did you swap the axles? Besides being able to have the rear disc brakes. And why did you go with the toyota diffs? Are you planing on wiring up the e-locker?

I had the complete Toy/Disco rear in my NAS 90 so it was sitting on the garage floor from when I put that vehicle back to stock before selling. And the pieces for the front Toy/Disco axle I had sitting on the shelf so I finished it up and installed on my roller galvy chassis.

The Toyota E-Locker worked great on my 90. The axle shafts are larger than a stock Rover - 30 spline vs 24. So the main reason is I had them available and ready to go for essentially no cost. The front and rear axle shafts should be fine for the 35's I have -(I think Keith at Roving Tracks said they were good for up to 37's). And will be overkill if I go down to 255's. My 110 is a ST and will be pretty light weight so the Disco/90 rear axle housing should be strong enough. The ability to use Defender 90 rear disc brakes including brake lines made things easy too. One more thing: the Disco/90 3rd member/pumpkin case should more clearance that the Salisbury/dana60.

It's been a long while but most of the updates have been shown on the OM617 thread.

Here are some of the fuel tank install. Pretty impressed with the YRM alloy fuel tank skid.

Got the steering mostly done.

Stock Disco cross rod was sleeved, added a nut for adjustment, and had to weld a piece of sheet metal to bring the OD up to 1.5" to use a Ballistic Fab clamp.

I also found a LH 11/16-16 tap to clean them post welding.

I was wondering did you buy a 110 chasis or a use a Discovery 1 chasis? Thinking of this type of swap as the old trusty dusty and finally rusty is starting to show.

110 chassis - a Disco chassis would be a ton of fab work unless I was doing a 100" build (which I think would be rad).

You are too kind Ed!

I have been picking away at things and just dropped off a bunch of dash items to powder coating last week. I hope to have the dash started soon and will document that. I figure once that is all done then the body pieces should go pretty quick. Looking around May for it to be driven out of the garage scrossed:

It looks a little goofy but was the only thing that could fit over the sleeve I did. If I was to do the cross link bar again I'd go about it differently but it was good to learn some things on.

The panhard is one of Keith's/RoverTracks.

Installed the JSQ hitch that was on my NAS90. I dig how the black looks with the Galvy frame. The underneath frame nuts are m12 on this vs m10 on the NAS and the '86. I used allen head 12.9s as I couldn't get a socket on a normal bolt.

Dash as of right now. I am still waiting on the leather cover for the lower dash. Got the upper dash that I bought on here installed. Wrapped in leather and has the ashtray covered up and IMO looks dope! I think a pair of Lav's vent covers will set it off nicely I am sure people are thinking why the leather but I love a clean and tidy interior.
