X Brake on a LR110CSW

Just fitted a cable operated disc handbrake onto my prop shaft to replace the ageing and unreliable drum brake what a different beast. Very well engineered kit, no mods required to install it! Will hold an incredible amount of weight.


Next on list is a split charge system for a battery for jump starting boats etc!

New boat is here, very happy!

In fairness only once did I have trouble - the brake decided to stick ON - made agreat anti theft device - I would just have to crawl underneath and flip the lever. Being a Land Rover of course it fixed itself!!!

About to start a full mod on my 110 so will prob fit one.

We've made an hydraulic brake take-off for a defender...
