Thanks for the tips and levity.
. I also stripped a knuckle to hub bolt last night on the LR3 so it was just another typical Rover day.
First time taking this apart so I didnt know what to expect. I have new shoes for the brake; guess Ill order new bolts and a complete in/output seal kit with flanges for the TCase since its leakin. STC3433 an STC3432
