So some baby steps in the right direction. A wife who's 8 months pregnant, new house with a list of to do's that never ends and 100 degree heat doesn't leave much time for the rover.

Got the clutch plumbed and mounted. Seems to work ok for me bleeding it by myself. One hand pumping the other turning the bleeder in a god awful awkward position. Most importantly no leaks

Use a lokar throttle cable and made my own pedal assembly. Seems to work very well. Still have to paint some items, put in the cable hold downs and bolt in the pedal for good but so far so well. I enjoyed making the whole assembly. Made the mounts, the pivot and the lever for the cable to attach to and very happy with the results.

Haven't so much as looked at the truck in a month but I got a P38 steering box in and trying to mock it up

Those of you with a Designa coil sprung chassis

Does your chassis have these tabs with two holes on both sides of the spring perch? Got my steering box and I feel like I could bring it closer to the spring perch and farther away from the jate ring hole if they weren't there. I can't imagine they add much integrity based in the surface area of the weld. Only thing I'm thinking is brake lines? But I can run those through the rear set.

Do they server any other purpose I'm not thinking in at this point?

That's what i thought. But I have one rear and front of the spring perch. Any down side to taking off the front one and moving the box closer to the perch? As it sits now the hole for the steering rod ball joint in the drop arm is directly under where you would put a jate ring.

Also I think I'm realizing now designa may have forgotten to weld on my steering box plate as originally ordered.

defenders are in the rear. Designa was going to weld on the plate for the p38 box ?

Supposed to. Circled the option on my form and paid 80 pound for it

Not the end of the world, I can fab up. But I'm gonna have to guess a little on exact location

Spoke with Ian. Mis understanding on my part. It was set up for a 90 box. I'll be retrofitting the p38 box looks like

Will leave more room for plumbing and a stronger box anyways. Just need to mod a few things to make work. Doesn't look too difficult
