I don't think this will work. The 1997 has the 4.0L engine and the piping is different. So unless Ken spent the time research what adaptors you need for the '97 (he has a '94, right?), then....

There are differences on the radiator side too. My defender has a newer style radiator (which I believe the '97 has too) so I couldn't use these kits.

For the love of God...take off your lines, take them to a local hydraulic shop, have them cut the metal tubes and fit hoses and fittings. The hoses are removable if you ever need to change them.

Oh, yeah, and pay them about $100 for the privilege.

Why is this so difficult for many of you?

I did exactly that. I can't remember the place I used but it was here in chantilly (if you want the info let me know) and being NOVA it was bit more expensive but well worth it.

That's why Ken's route was worth it for (at least) NOVA folks!

But in the end, I don't think more expensive that the kit plus the sandwich plate. I don't remember the exact numbers.

Roughly (give or take $10) $160 for sandwidch plate + Ken's braided piping + adaptors.
Anyway, not a big deal, the good thing is: there are options!

And WHATEVER OPTION YOU CHOOSE, DO IT QUICK! Or live and learn.... like I did...... It _will_ happen to you.

I "only" have 85K on my 1995 Defender; and I got lucky it did not burn on the side of the road exactly a week ago......

Pretty "funny" how fast you can (ok.... soft top without any top.... increased visibility):
- see all that white smoke in your rear (side?) view mirror (I was entering the highway and changing toward the fastest lanes, that's probably what saved me)
- confirm that there is no smoke coming from "in front of you"
- start preying and cross your fingers
- signal turn
- prey
- move from the right lane to the left lane (highway speed, rush hour traffic)
- emergency stop; cursing you don't have an ABS system and newer tires but glad this is a D90 (light, wide tires and slow) on a dry sunny warm day and where there is an emergency lane.
- grab the fire extinguer
- prey harder
- unlock the bonnet
- jump out of the Defender
- promise to believe in the LR god if you make it alive
- throw the fire extinguer locking pin out
- open the bonnet
- aim
- smile.....
then....
- stop smiling
- dial AAA.....
- plan you next LR god contribution
