Rear disc brake 110

My first Post...

I have done a search on this forum to know how to make my UK 110 (in Canada) go from rear drum brakes to rear disc brakes. From what I could pick up it is a complete axel swap but for witch one and for how much. Is there a Kit or is it a custom job.

Thanks all.

Pat

Pat,

I have thought about this too but did not think a complete axle swap would be needed. I have seen some series trucks with disc conversions that just needed some grinding and welding to make it work, I woulddn;t think it would be much more than that for the 110.

Check With Zeus, I bought a front drum to disk conversion from them for my 101FC , Chances are good they make a conversion for the 110.

I believe there's a not-too-difficult way to use a rear Discovery axle to get disc brakes on your 110.

A friend had recently converted a customer's 110 Salisbury to discs using all stock Land Rover parts. It was a total bolt-on. It was a rather long list of parts, and fairly expensive once you added everything up. But it can be done. I would also check with Keith at Rovertracks as I know he's done a lot of work with Salisburys.

Does anyone know what the Zeus kit costs? It'd be interesting to compare to the cost of the individual parts my friend bought through a dealer.

Just so you know the Drum braked rear axle is a touch stronger than the disc version due to better wheel bearing spacing and more spline depth in the drive members.

Zeus Kit Info

OK, talked to Zeus and there's good news and bad news. Good news is that the kit's cost is fairly reasonable, bad news is they don't ship to the US:

The code for the product is Z1302. The kit cost is 500.00 which includes taxes and carriage.
Unfortunately we do not ship to the USA due to the high liability insurance costs since 9/11.

I've written them back and asked if they have a US Distributor. Meanwhile, anybody know of a way to get the kit in the US?

The drums work fine, actually at least as good as discs. Unless you are doing a lot of mud no need to switch. I know it can be done with hubs/rotors/calipers off of a Disco I and calpier brackets off an transition 110 disc brake axle (there were some axles made with discs but without the caliper brakets molded into the housing), but I think you need new axle shafts too. No biggy if you are upgrading but otherwise serious cash.

My friend told me it cost about $2400 for all of the LR parts about a year ago. This included axle shafts. So while this is possible, it doesn't seem very cost effective.

If the Zeus kit goes for 500 GBP (~$900 USD), that sounds like a good deal. Probably a good idea though to first find out what is included in the kit.

I got lucky and latched onto kind of a one-off deal on a used disc Salisbury in the UK. Another friend has a container coming this way so that made it a reasonable purchase. As previously mentioned, Keith may have other options as well. Forgot he was Down Under for a few weeks - Thanks Peter.
