    No, not yet. I have the britpart ones, but they need to be modified to fit with the bottom crossmember extension caps that are welded on. They are designed to fit directly over the original chassis frame profile.

    Anyone had the same issue?

    Cheers,
    Simon

    Hey guys,

    Just a quick update on Joe the 2a. I have cleaned up the engine and painted it with POR 15 engine enamel. It came out nice and it hard as a rock. I have all new gaskets other than the head gasket to fit next. I have rebuilt the ld28 oil cooler also with new seals etc so hopefully it won’t leak any more.

    After


    I will also be cleaning up the rocker cover and replacing the water pump too.

    Cheers
    Simon

    Hey guys,

    Update on joe the series 2a.

    I have been cleaning up and refurbishing more engine parts recently including new water pump, new heater and oil hoses, new glow plugs, new diesel pump timing belt, new gaskets all round (other than head gasket) and painted all parts and mounts. Here are some progress shots.

    I am also in the process of rebuilding the injectors. They are in terrible shape. I will be replacing the jet housing and needle because they are well gone.

    Also joe is now out of the weather and in the garage! Plus test fitting the bulkhead repair pieces...

    More updates to come!

    Cheers,
    Simon

    Hey guys,

    Look what I found! Trademe score! Does anyone have any tips or tricks on how to make or find new flaps for the heater? The fan motor runs but the core isn’t leak tested.

    Cheers,
    Simon

    Awesome cheers for that. I’ll have a go and see what I can come up with

    Hey guys,

    I have been working on the injectors and have tried my hand at zinc electroplating. I only did the adaption nipples from the pump outlets to the injector and painted the injector bodies. New vs old. Turned out all good. I used a zinc anode for marine use.

    Below is my setup. I used a phone charger cable which I adapted with alligator clips. I cleaned the parts with hydrochloric acid to remove any grease etc, then into water to rinse before going into the zinc bath. The parts need to be clean of rust before plating.

    Ended up turning out really nice after a light wire brush to remove the grainy deposit left on the exterior.

    Cheers,
    Simon
