Wound up swapping the low hi assembly and cover ( the linkage was easier to keep in the cover) both output flanges, the rear output cover (no hole for speed sensor).
I also put in new input and output seals (bearings were great) and took off all the covers to reseal them.

All in all, it wasn't bad, just didn't plan on doing all that and of course I figured out what was wrong when I was close to fitting it. Still lots easier than rebuilding the whole case.

The case is quiet and solid. I would do it again.

I tore down the front end of the 110 yesterday to swap the injecton pump. While waiting for Uncle Douglas to arrive with the "magic" timing pin set, I got all the parts cleaned and ready for the reassembly.
Well....we got it swapped and when putting the new timing belt on it seemed too long. Opened my spares box and got another new one...also too long. After phone calls and a lot of head scratching we found out the motor is a 14J.....and I guess one of the differences is the timing belt.
We retired to the house and cooked steaks in the rain...and ended up having a great afternoon.
Of course we must have offended the Rover gods, as enroute home, Douglas's alternator crapped out on 29 about 20 miles from his place. He txt me and said..." I sitting here on the side of the road, blue lights flashing all around me...waiting for a tow, and eating cup cakes" (that the mrs made and sent home with him).
I will source a new belt today and the plan is to drive the 110 to RAW. Thanks for the help Douglas...and the phone support Robert.

Came home from work tonight and made some big cuts on my tub...

I am doing a disco seat install ala Tyler Wirkens build thread. I would have loved to use a plasma cutter, but I made do with a dewalt angle grinder. I'll clean up the cuts with files prior to bending and reinstalling sheet metal.

Got the seats mocked up just before dark and time to help get the kids fed.

Very happy with how this is going to go. Tomorrow if I get done in time at work I'll come home and do a full mock up to take measurements for the brackets -- it looks like it will he pretty straight forward.

I think DII seats in a 110 are an awesome cheaper alternative to Exmoor stuff.

Agreed. I got a nice pair of exmoor seats recently but they're nowhere near the quality of disco seats. That set up looks awesome though.

Agreed! I looked into the new premium high backs... I'm saving over $2k by doing this conversion instead! Not sure I would do it to a NAS, but my trail rig is a great candidate for such a conversion

I offered the trooper one and he said he's having enough trouble staying svelt so his body armor fits, so he declined.

In the category of "who knew?"

Seems zinc has a lower melting point than most metals. The Hella 4000 buckets appear to be cast zinc. Seems they didn't stand up too well to the 400+ degrees of the powder coating oven and they are no longer round.

May replace buckets, may just get new lights - if anybody needs parts, lenses, etc - just PM me.

Bumper, brush bar, light bar (without lights) will go back on truck this weekend.

Pure zinc melts at almost 800 decrees so I'm guessing it's made of something else. Did it melt or just loose it's roundness? Either way, that sucks.

No longer round - one worse than the other - at first glance didn't really notice. They plastic wrap everything so didn't notice at all when I picked them up. I'm picking up rear bumper and roll cage Saturday and I'll let them know - they seem like good guys and I would think they would take a few bucks off that bill.

New buckets are $36 each.

I powder coated some candle holders that I cut out of a steel sheet a few years back. They came back warped too. My guess is that the thinner metal needs to be more gradually heated and cooled to avoid warping. Live and learn......

Dave, your 110 has really come a long way since I saw it last. Wish mine looked as good

Woke up early to try again at sheet metal fabrication to fill the gaping holes in my tub for my disco seat install. This was 'take two' after a few fails last night. After some wasted efforts this morning, I'm convinced that I'm in over my head. The cutting and bending is not particularly difficult, the challenge is that if a cut or a Bend does not match up by 1 mm it throws off the whole install! Now begins the search for a metal fabricator that may be able to get this done before Uwharrie. Otherwise I may be out on the trails was some extra ventilation back in the rear of my vehicle

Had to have new floor pans put in and a new gas tank fabricated.. next step is going to be taking out all the glass and media blasting or sandblasting by someone or myself. Is the process difficult? I see that you have the Harbor Freight rig as what you used.

Work is being done at a snails pace but slowly coming along. Thank God that my Volvo 70 is my daily driver. As many know, I have a 200tdi engine that will be transplanted into my D90. So far I was able to get my lazy uncle to change the clutch. I was told the the timing kit will be put on today. Therefore, I can safely say that in 2-3 weeks both clutch and timing belt will be completed. After that the Garrett High Performance turbo intercooler will be mounted. The truck should be ready in about 2 months.

Yellow 94 is in the shop getting a new EMECU. Yay for me!

97 LE is in process of replacing exterior hardware with stainless and getting roof rack repainted. PO had taken it off at some point and there are light scuff marks where it was handled. Swapping out all exterior light lens covers. Gonna get it buffed and waxed when the sun comes back out.
