Phew!
That’s pretty much it. I cut the hole and hinged the number plate and then cut the top off a 20 litre square plastic (adblue) barrel and bolted it in behind. I don’t think it’s going to be fully waterproof but it’s ideal for the bottles of oil etc that always leak when you take your eye off them.

Indeed ! Very clever use of space.  Please tell me the interior is an old 5lt plastic oil can or similar :-)

Took the r/h wing off to get to the pedal boxes so the master cylinders can be replaced, glad I thought about future maintainance by waxoiling the bolts as I fitted them 20 odd years ago as they all came away without an arguement emma1

I know, what a smart axxe....

After 10 days of strife ... finally got a working clutch  emma1 emma1 emma1

I've struggled getting air out of the line  thud
I struggled with Britpart parts  shakinghead

Fitted the TRW bits AND used the proper, correct bleeding technique ...

i) Me underneath with jam jar, tube, spanner and cloth.
ii)Mrs Wittsend working the clutch pedal
and
iii) Granddaughter Wittsend topping up the reservoir

We finally got a "pedal".

Installed a hazard warning light switch and the wiring to go with this along with a tachometer.  Everything looks to be alright on the indicators and hazard circuit, though the dash light on the tach doesn’t come on with the other instrument lighting.  Will investigate tomorrow.  Last thing to do wiring wise is the washer bottle and motor to the inside of the wing, then I can fit the wings, mud guards, front two wheels, bonnet and she is ready to be inspected prior to first road trip.  (Oh and petrol in the tank)   Nearly there...  wink

I should start a new thread sometime with some of my odd inventions.  Oddjob’s Oddball Ideas!
Anyway, for now, this is what remains of the 20 litre  barrel.  Uncut barrel on left for scale.



And here’s a shot of the release button.




Ebay linky... Item #123270655475

The hinge is just an offcut of stainless piano hinge I had.

Walked past mine, thinking it's not been used for quite a while. Might be time to move it on, finding the 109 more useful.

I agree unfortunately he has other shows to do. Maybe if we do a Cornwall event he could bring it. Rion made that engine himself

Down to Ipswich transport museum yesterday for their commercial vehicle day - 85 mile round trip. Only LR on display outside although they had their own S1 ex fire brigade one inside complete with trailer.  A very comprehensive display, not just buses, covering every possible aspect of transport even prams  wink  Each aspect had its own corner with a variety of examples and vintage signs eveywhere. Good tea room. Well worth a visit and only £5 entrance fee for me

My favourite was an immaculate 1930 Austin 7 half van with magneto ignition. Anyone got one to sell  whistle

Removed the bell housing to take a look at the jammed synchromesh. 1 of the 3 centre springs came out when I drained the oil. One appears to be jamming the “sliding” part of the synchromesh.... the third has yet to be located!

It’s nice when that happens. The “old timer”  folks here wave at me when I’m driving the Series 2. It's nice to get a wave. Might not be a Landy but at least we appreciate owning, maintaining and driving old vehicles.

Finished off fitting new springs and did an oil change, no idea when its last one was so always nice to get fresh oil in.

Not sure exactly what the oil capacity with a new filter of the 2286 diesel (from an early series three I think 906XXXX) but arrived at 6.5 litres by searching although confirmation would be good if anyone knows for sure.

Cut the rotten bit off the handbrake lower mounting bracket, ready to make a replacement piece tonight for welding on on Monday; finally got the last brake drum off ready to figure how to get the brakes apart and the backplate off in the morning. Did not get the swivel off as it is seized with sixty years of decay, double-nutted with no-longer-hexagonal nuts. Tomorrow will be  angle grinder time.
