    small update

    I have been playing around with the carby setting and now is idling a lot slower and more like a normal idle but its a little rough thinking the mixture is wrong or the distributor needs advancing or retarding which i have not touched since starting the beast. she is loud due to no exhaust system for now.

    1-2. Looking for the specs for a radiator, on ebay they sell land rover holden radiators to suit 186 but not S1. Not a lot of room in here to fit a radiator since I have replaced the cut out front crossmember. plan to use elec fans, might have to cut the rad support panel to accommodate. do people use the LR or Holden radiator?

    3. temp fitted the rad support panel to take some measurements of a suitable radiator

    4. have another panel with a LR radiator - unsure of the condition but unlikely to fit, will try. This panel has a better base to bolt to chassis and three points whereas the one fitted has rusted out the base plate to secure to chassis. I do have a holden rad but its bent. so need to take some measurements and see which will fit better.

    engine oil level had dropped due to new oil filter i guess so topped up the oil in the engine. would like to run her longer and try the gears but need the rad first.

    Sorry I can't help you with the radiator , I have only ever had one 80" with a side plate Holden motor & I took that out & fitted a LR motor . I do remember it had not had the front X member cut & from what I remember the radiator supports wings on the front panel had been cut off , the panel had been moved forward flush with the front edge of the bonnet with the head lights moved to the guards. I think there was a radiator support frame made out of steel angle . I can't remember what radiator they had used , I have it in the back of my head it was a Holden but don't quote me on that. I am trying to remember back at least 30 years & don't have any photo's they got lost three computers ago .
    Have a look at the posts in Holden powered Series LR' s you may find something in there .

    brake master

    1 brake master rod cleaned up and painted (not shown) for installation

    2 threads in chassis needed cleaning out with the bolts prior to fitting, and then finally fitted into position. I note the rod which pushes against the brake master is not attached to the master just housed inside the rubber dust cover of the brake master. Is this correct?

    3 one of the brake lines attached into position, other brake line needs some more work

    4 I'm sure there is a spring which pulls the pedal back when not in use, this black 'push rod' does it just sit against the brake master inside the boot?
