    How did I not see this build. What did you end up doing to connect the gas pedal linkage to the carb? I am working on that now. I am not sure if the IIA has the complex linkage setup that the series 1 has.

    I can take pics. I used factory LR pedal and a
    Cable to carb linkage. There might be a post in this thread

    swapped the rear diff this weekend for a later Ranger Rover 3:54..
    had to get creative and fill the axle through the vent.. didn't notice the lack of a fill plug until everything was all buttoned up..
    Truck is much happier with the new gears.. first gear is usable and still punchy.
    I took the front drive shaft out to prevent any unforeseen issues until I can get around to swapping the front. Rear took 90 min to R&R.. I have a feeling the front will take a tad longer.

    Also got around to buttoning up the transmission tunnel.
    This is version 1 of what will eventually be a single piece of bent aluminum..
    plenty of room for 4wd levers..

    got back in the garage last couple weeks to start a refurb on the heater..
    had the main housing blasted and core pressure tested.. couple of pinholes were revealed from trapped leaves.
    JB weld to the rescue!
    Blower motor disassembly wasn't ideal and I'm currently searching for parts..

    Bulkhead hold cut and everything test mounted last night before final assembly.
    there is some interference from the bonnet support and inner wing.. going to have to play around with both.
    Heater moved outboard just enough that it misses the indents
    Also the heater intake and hole in the wing don't exactly match up for a solid connection.. I'm thinking some ducting will be just fine there.

    When mounting the heater core, there was some caulk type stuff on the fins of the core insulating it form the heater body.. is that just strip caulk or something else? would felt be better?
    I already planned on using strip caulk for the flanges of the heater and interior distribution box.

    just need a blower wheel now..

    Spent an hour and half this week just opening boxes in the warehouse..
    Make a long story short I found a correct sized wheel with a wrong hub offset... settled on a fairly common blower motor assembly that fit in the housing. After centering the wheel in the bore, drilled some holes and were good to go.

    Working on mounting, plumbing and the defroster ducts this weekend..

    Engine bay not 100% yet, but it just looks like it was meant to be in there.

    Wow, very beautiful work! You now need a double rifle and a hunting trip to Africa to break it in. It really looks great!

    Finally swapped the front diff to the higher gears.. installed front driveshaft and fabbed shifters.

    No modesty... I’m proud of this..
    Very close to stock appearance...

    Ideally I would like to fabricate a one piece tuner cover and get the range (red) shifter tighter..
    Didn’t caulk yet, I have a feeling it’s all coming apart for tweaking..

    addressed some of the noises i have been hearing while driving..
    installed the low range shifter boot and strip caulked the floor panels..
    installed a UTV Bluetooth soundbar to fix everything else..

    UTV soundbar mounted under dash... looks about 100 times better than I thought and easily removable..
