Newbie defender 110 questions

Just got my 110 1986 delivered. I have a couple of really basic questions as follows

Rear Brakes. I need a new brake line from junction to wheel on drivers side. Who is best source? Also brake line clips are mounted to axle with square head however none of my bits fit what am I missing. Number 2 is too small and 3 is to big?

Electrical gremlin. Truck was converted to a 300 tdi engine and wiring harness was modified. Fuses blow when engine is started Works fine in first position but when engine is cranked fuses blow.

Wiring diagram. Where is best place to acquire

brake lines can be bought- Rovers North has them or you can make your own with a flaring tool. Wiring harness was converted ? Something is very wrong if you are blowing fuses on start up since the starter wiring isn't fused. If I were you I would keep an extinguisher handy and the the battery box open with the neg terminal loose while you figure this out so if a short happens you can run around and pull the negative quickly.

For parts,

www.lucky8llc.com it's best to call or email with your needs great service and prices
www.rovahfarm.com is also good
ptschram@ptschram.com email is best for him to as his website doesn't list anything lol

Workshop manuals are located here http://smithies.co.nz/land_rover/ you'll want the one for 90/110 if memory serves there are some wiring diagrams in there. You are going to have to sort through whatever they did though to find the problem and I hope it goes smooth for you.

Thanks

Well after a weekend of wiring fixes some progress but not fixed. Appears that the ignition switch spring does not push back to position one. When I manually push back to one then gas gauge, etc. works.

Front right blinker and lights are not working properly. Right rear blinker blinks fast and front right does not work at all. Headlight does not work on right either.

You'll need to get a workshop manual.
You need a new ignition switch.
One of your flashers is not working, so check bulbs, ground and so on.
The rest is no telling.
I don't know why, but novice mechanics love to screw up a perfectly good wiring harness with "fixes".
BTW you have a 110 and this thread was posted to the Series Technical Discussions.
