plus the 5th wheel looks like its a bit far back,
If I showed "the boss" that her boot would be connecting with my arse as I went through the door, :eek::eek:
on another note------

I got stuck in our own field last week. bloody front wheel drive :banghead::banghead:

think it needs last bit of the transit chassis cutting off.
i did the same on mine . it allows the fifth wheel to be a bit forward . mind careful measuring of the pin to the front corners etc needs to be made . i do think i perhaps should have moved my pin on the trailer a bit bacwards . then i could have slid the trailer a few inches tighter up to the cab . but when i did it i was using the vw,lt as well and decided how it is fitted both.
but looks interesting for someone .
i,m not sure if mini artic is the way really better keep mine a bit longer before i make my mind up.
17 yrs isnt long enough to decide . i dont want to guess at it . hee hee.
front wheel drive . whats that.

spoke to local landrover independants . mick moore ,known them years . he said you should be able to get a rebuild kit . contact series 1 owners club . use google . or is there a part no. on the pump. he hasnt done one for years but if you get a part number he will investigate . seems there could be different ones even back then.
i have august 2017 landy magazine issue 42 here but cant find anyone exactly . is it a 1.6 or a 2.0 52 could be either 48-52 or 52-58.
perhaps try brownchurch landrovers in london or give google a try. http://www.brownchurch.co.uk/products/spare-parts/
they made my rooftent and were very helpfull.

mind very often just stripping the pump and a local machine shop will make near bearings and bushes .
veteran car owners get it done often. the old pumps arent like the new versions of pumps .
never had any water pump problems with my old vw t2 though.

Confirmed we got the pump only there is a rubber ring between the thermostat and pump and we cant find that? We have been here on the Eifel now for 4 weeks restoring the cab on the truck,up till now the condition of the cab is of no interest to theTUV its not load bearing.But!!! Heike and I are not doing any more events so she has to give up her showpersons passport which means we would no longer be road tax free and have to pay the normal tax which for the truck would be around 600 Euros per year.The alternative is to be a historic vehicle in which case the cab has to be in a very good condition. I have made up new body panels and we found two wings that were restorable and on monday we leave my mates lovely orchard and go down to a hall that he and a few pals rent to store their oldtimer trucks where his son will do all the necessary welding.We havent been able to do a lot of painting on the living part cos the weather has been absolutely crap.I have never seen so much rain in July,2 nights ago we had 95 liters per square meter.With historic status we pay 190 euros and Heike being a lot younger than me when I pop my clogs she has something with a good price tag.

On the living accomodation ,2 new locker doors , they are only 2 years old and one had mushrooms nearly from day one and the other woodworm,I think it was in the timber when bought.Last year in Morocco had new back window made for 30 euros. The box is basicely sound and of no interest to the TUV. The Tuv man is a mate and normally easy going but on the historic issue stood his ground. One advantage of the crap weather is that the rivers are high and we can go canoeing.

Hi Dunroamin, I see you have sorted the Series one pump but for future reference there is also John Craddocks in the midlands, comprehensive supplier of original and pattern parts
