    I'm having trouble with the brakes on an ‘86 Land Rover Ninety, and it’s starting to drive me crazy!! First, let me explain about the vehicle itself. Although it’s an early Ninety, it’s just had the back axle off a Disco 1 fitted, so it’s got discs all round. The rear calipers, discs, pipework...

    Hey y’all, I’m in the process of getting my hands on a Series III that has a Forbyn Bros hub conversion. The front discs and calipers are already sourced but I still need to get the rears. The Geniune Land Rover parts on RN seem excessively expensive for what they are, but the proline units...

    Removed the rear prop shaft to replace failed u joint. Diff bolts were no problem removing, but somehow snapped one of the bolts coming out of the drum brake to the shaft. Anyone know what the bolt spec is and how difficult it is to replace? Also, I tried to move the truck with the rear shaft...

    I am in the process of replacing all the brake lines on my '91 110. I could you some advice on the proper way to make a double flare. I bought the Eastwood bench mounted flare tool and have no problem making bubble flares, but the double flares that I am making don't look as good. Can anyone...

    Anyone here have experience in removal and repair of the rear brake line G Valve? Replacements appear to be NLA. I'm troubleshooting poor brake operation and this is one of the few brake system components I haven't replaced. The others being rear cylinders and brake booster. Pedal goes about...

    I need to bite the bullet and put new brake pads and rotors on my 95 RRC. I've read a lot about OEM, Akebono, Texstar. Was wondering if anyone could tell me what they've been happy with in terms of pads/rotors and if one mfr. or type (e.g., ceramic) is really a better choice. I realize some...

    So in one of those 'Days of Thunder' moments.. Went out to the garage to get something last night and noticed a puddle under the 'Ole Girl.. Looks like the Brake Master is leaking (pretty significantly).. Initially thought it was leaking between the reservoir and the Master, but not so sure...

    I can not believe that I am the only NAS Defender 90 owner that needs to replace/restore his third brake light bar. I see where Roverlab might be making some and I contact him to say I need one. Surely someone out there on Defenderland must know where a person can buy a replacement of has one...

    Greetings Hivemind, I've had intermittent softness in the brakes. Leading theory from my uncle (a long time diesel mechanic) after driving was that debrief / blockage was being shifted around in the system and sometimes stopping the flow of the fluid. Ask a local spot to take a look and they...

    I'm in the process of rebuilding the transmission brake. Right now I'm about to take the transmission brake back plate off but before I do so I want to know if I have to remove the drive flange as well so it has enough room to slide off. I'd like avoid draining the transfer box oil. I'd...

    I finished converting my 110 rear drum brakes to disc brakes. Does anyone in the Austin area want the old parts? The stub axles, hubs, driving members, and axles are all in good shape. The backing plates are fine but the adjusters are shot; I've got an extra set of genuine replacement...

    I’ve just limped home with a brake line split on my 110. It’s 8 degrees C in Toronto - but I see -12 next week when I’ll be lying in the snow making a repair. Bugger... I will eventually replace much of the hard brake line in the truck. Realistically, few of the fittings will be worth...

I pulled the bulb from the housing and...

    As previously mentioned in another thread my '87 110 failed its inspection. Might have more to do with the other issue than the break issue but alas here I am. My right rear wheel shows signs of a break fluid leak. It isn't that bad as the truck runs and stops fine. The back of the wheel...
