    So got the Chassis back from the galvanisers today, looking pretty flash now






    A few zinc dags to clean up here and there, then will start fitting it out

    Also got the front diff and a number of other items painted

    That is looking good, I do hope though that during the gal/process that the chassis didn't warp, a friend had one done back around 1987 it warped the rear right hand side, anyway fingers XXXX'd for you, keep up the good work cheers Dennis

    Have had no dramas with warping, checked chassis measurements after.
    The only thing I found is any weld repairs that have been ground flush will show up with the gal. I'm not sure if this is due to the heating during the dip or the zinc forming a thicker layer on the weld filler metal (someone else may be able to shed some light as to why this happens). Was not really a problem on mine as it only had a few minor repairs on the outrigger ends.

    Cheers Paul

    Well that's good news, my mate Terry (who owned said vehicle) was devastated by the warping, it had a twist of over 50mm, I can't remember how they fixed/bodged the problem too long ago, anyway mate cheers Dennis

    Got a bit more done the last few days, replaced front and rear crank seals, fitted a new water pump (only because I had one lying around) also cleaned prepped and painted the engine, rocker cover and a few other bits.

    Looks a bit better now :-)

    So after a long break from working on the Landy mainly due to other projects and building a house, I have finally got back into it. Have also taken a bit of a diversion from the original plan of using the rover 2.25petrol, for the moment anyway. Being a bit of an Isuzu engine fan have decided to use an Isuzu 4JB1-T which I recently acquired. So hopefully I will get the chassis to a rolling stage in the next few weeks. Currently working on rebuilding the springs.

    Cheers
    Paul
