Interesting rear door set up on that unit. All my 57’s have/had a tailgate and cat flap lift gate. This one has a single rear door like a Series 2? I wonder if that is a local market thing (like the one piece front doors) or an owner modification??? Either way, it’s a really tidy looking unit.

New custom bellhousings to go from a short bellhousing R380 to the R2.8 directly.  Designed for a much larger clutch than used with Rover engines, from a Chrysler V8.  Uses the flywheel that comes with the engine, drilled to match the Chrysler clutch.

I have those same headlights on my 110. They are x 1000 better than the stock units. They really kick ass. Great upgrade.
BTW, I’ve never seen a Bose load leveller that works properly on a Range Rover or 110 SW since 1998.

You need a load leveller for the system to work with those springs. Otherwise you would normally change to Disco 1 rears.

Read the manual for the method to test the load leveler. Do you understand you need to drive for the leveler to pump up?  Part is the problem with a leveler is they won’t work if you are trying to be lifted.  They will only maintain stock height.

Do you have a load leveler and is it still working?  If not, those rear springs are probably a bit light for a RR.  An Airlift kit would be a decent option.

Not sure if load leveler is working.  Red/whites are 20 lbs stiffer (170 lb) than factory greens (150 lb).  Greens now in the front as opposed to 133 lb stock.  Trying not to mess with the ride at all.
