Dan the Man,

Where did you get your horns from please? They look far more substantial than most i have seen for sale.

I would also relocate your PCL coupling up much higher as they do not like dirt and jam up relatively easily.

The off road competition side of motorsport in the UK for smaller vehicles is quite healthy (not as good as it was in the 90's but then nothing is. I am involved in the BXCC (British Cross Country Championships) which is similar vehicles to one of the categories in the Breslau (but i cannot remember the class), which is the out and out racing class without winches,. There is then the challenge scene but this is not for trucks. What we are missing is the truck category. The UK issue with this is the land that we have available. We simply do not have the space or the tracks. Regrettably.

I erm cheated and bought the repair panels from AC Price. Typical Merc. They all fitted like a glove. The guy doing my welding had never had panels for any vehicle that did not require 'adjustment' until he did the Mog cab  ;D

That cab is considerably better than mine. I must admit with the state of mine i have purchased all of the panels new from Mercedes. Last winter it was the passengers side floor, sills, inner wheel arch and both front wings. The plan for this winter is all the same panels for the drivers side and the upper and lower rear panels of the cab. Good luck and happy welding!

It is always interesting to see what others have done to their mogs as it often leads to sparking enthusiasm or ideas with your own vehicle.  ;D

Dan the Man,

Do you really mean pre '83 or post '83.

I would like to know either way and hope that someone can shed some light.......

AS well as AV have you spoke to A C Price Engineering about a vehicle (always worth a call IMHO)

Looking good!

If the hub got that hot i would as a minimum replace the oil if you haven't already as it may well have lost its lubricating properties and secondly check the seals have not suffered from the heat. I had a over heating pair of front hubs (due to failing bearings in my case) and it cooked the seals....  ::)

Oh and which engine does it have? Plus were the oil seals a drama?

Welcome Dan,

Many on here have the Land Rover disease as well. To be fair i think that other than the 130 101 that i saw done as a camper i would agree that the 101 would be too small. Other than that i am probably of little help but i am sure that the rest will be along soon. Look out for Villager and Moose plus plenty more as sound sources of knowledge and advice.

Thank you Moose. I will confirm with Stuart what he is doing as he led me to believe that he was fitting a turbo engine and from you comments above it makes me think i am chasing after the wrong designation manuals.

Cheers Paul
