Today was very productive I fitted my engine back in, fitted my steering system, fitted fuel tank and fuel lines, made up all new brake pipes and fitted, fitted extended hoses, fitted new bushes in rear suspension arms and fitted back onto vehicle, fitted rear ora dislocation plates. Ooh and fitted the bracket for load sensing valve. All was nice and easy with the body off.

Fitted drivers side pads and new disk. Noticed a lot of play in the hub so probably the bearings have gone. Could explain my brake problem (wobble pushing pads apart).

Then took over an hour to Dremel off the rounded nut which meant I could fit the new rear cylinder :mad:

Just the rear shoes to fit and rebuilding of brake lines to go.
