Hello all,
I just bought a 1962 Land rover 109 with a ford 289 conversion. I am wanting to swap out the weak stock axles and transmission for american parts. Who should I contact in Abilene for this kind of work? I would like to do it myself but do not trust my welding skills with my dinky 110 flux core welder and do not think I could wrangle the heavy suspension parts by myself. So basically I need someone who can install a ford transmission, weld transmission supports and align and weld spring perches for the axles, and insure the steering still works? The floor of the cab comes up so the transmission can be removed from the top. I usually do all the work on my cars myself but this project is a little too BIG. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Scott

Scott,

Sorry for the delay, busy time and not many are monitoring the board. What axles were you thinking of installing?
