  1. Land Rover Disco2: Out with the old, in with the 4BT!

    Buildup Showcase Threads - All Engines, Vehicles
    New steering links are complete! Don't mind that panhard bar hanging there all out of place... it's next up on the list: Modifying the OE Rover steering stem to mate the wheel to the new Land Cruiser steering gear was a success & quite a bit easier than I could've hoped for with the splines...

    Engineered failure points is something I think I could do with learning more about. I would not be surprised if the knuckle failed before those steering links I built, & that's not ideal haha!

    Good to know, had not even heard of that brand myself. Would be good to have a few options in the sub-1k range to compare against each other before I put money down. I can see myself very much getting into Tig. The detail & precision of it combined with the lack of spatter... fantastic!

    Next on the list of steering mods is building the new drag-link, and might as well use something as stout as I did in the previous version: 1.5" DOM (seamless) tubing with a 1/4" wall thickness: In order to calculate it's new length, since the Land Cruiser steering box is in a new place, first...

    That's good to hear, because even though I'd heard they were tough, at first I was a little surprised by how much smaller the LC box appeared to be. (Could just be the difference in outside/inside frame rail designs) When I take it off again for paint I'll have to set it side by side my old OE...

    I think "liked" isn't a strong enough word... I've been showing it to friends like it was a picture of a 12-point I bagged or something haha! Just had a funny conversation about that same quote this last weekend with some friends while we were heading up to a rally race that's packed with...

    Slacking on updates! I am happy I managed to get all 5 of my projects running this year, but at the same time I'm probably even more scattered then usual. But anyway, updates: Ran into an interference with the Land Cruiser steering gear's pitman arm running into part of the original Rover...
  9. Why is it so hard to sign in here?

    Chit Chat
    The same happens to me & the fix that I've found is to press F5 (refresh) after the redirect you get from logging in, which seems to bump it from that "limbo" state into a properly logged-in state.

    Oh don't get me wrong... I appreciate their parts as well, especially for many import brands where they've taken over for the OEM replacement parts. No joke I just ran into an example of their parts being better this last Saturday: In this case it was a chinesium timing belt that refused to...

    Hmmm... maybe some marketing people came up with that 10X perfusion factor then. I haven't really noticed much for any signs of bleed-thru with silicone hoses on my projects in the past, maybe due to them being replaced more often since they were that cheap Chinesium garbage (compared to these...

    Woah! Well crap. I thought it was just ever so slightly more permeable, not comically more permeable! Hmm... that'll need a rethink for the long term for sure.

    Just have to cobble together some way to do so without the front driveshaft trying to cut it in half, & will do!

    Buildup Showcase Threads - All Engines, Vehicles
    Thanks! Just knocked another off that check list ✔ FINALLY got the driveshafts back. Both now the same lengths and same flanges, so now the front & rear are identical copies: Front shaft is in, although I had to ditch that front crossmember for now (mounts to that pad on the frame with the 4...

    A few drops of thread locker on bolts that don't protrude into the bell housing & the new slave cylinder is in! I made sure to refit the little retainer on the pushrod inside, which is meant to set the initial preload (between the slave's pushrod & clutch release fork) & make installation...

    Yeah they sure can get pricey! I have the 60lb springs already installed to deal with the 4k governor springs I put in the pump. It's not something I'll do right away if I do, but nice to know I have enough space... unless I utilize that space for compounds :lol:

    Twin hole pump would be overkill for sure, at least for my plans with this build. I would love an exhaust brake, and I have a ton of room under the turbo where I could plumb one in, but I think you can get them in both negative/positive pressure control. I put together a few different sizes of...

    Now that the pedal's in I started laying out the southbend master/slave kit & working out what to do with the master cylinder's pushrod. I carefully slid off the preload strap on the slave's pushrod so that I could measure the throw within the master cylinder: Before I started poking thru the...
