words of advice

strip down clean up and free off the 4wd dog in the nose where the front prop fits it will be a job well done as they only rely on a spring to engage the dog when you pull the pin up if it isnt nice and free it wont engage 4wd or only partly engage  and chew itself up  or jamb in 4wd

guess how i know   Roll Eyes

the engine is going back to its orignal position.

makes registering easier(in case of inspection) plus i can buy new propshaft off the shelf for about 60 and it will fit with no messing.

back to original plans, engine/box now mounted 5 1/2" forward!!!
chassis mounts not altered.
onto steering and pedals. blimey space is tight, got steering box bolted onto stock mounts. err........ steering wheel rather
close to driver!!! plans to cure that.
got a pedal box from a discovery. thats now been chopped into two and now has a big hole drilled between clutch/brake pedals to slide down column. the throttle cable actually fits onto the original mount and fixing on injecter pump which is rather handy!! guess thats a good thing with keeping everything landrover.

no pics yet.
