For those days when your parts just can't arrive quick enough, for sunny days when the transit just isn't 'fun'...

Project X...

Coming soon to a shed near me.

1997 DOHC, weber TC, MT75 box and Sierra fixed 3.72 diff in a Phaeton 3/4 hybrid.

IMAG0299

So, collected last weekend and the first chance I get to go over it we have snow / hail / rain and gales... lovely if your a penguin I guess...

Q835XSC purchased from the factory in 1988, completed in 1990, stored for the winter in 1991 and there it sat for 22 years, possibly one of the saddest Legerras I have ever seen apart from my black one.

It…

Sierra II

So the saga of the gearbox rear seal continues. When it had the rear crank seal done the garage also fitted a prop/tailshaft seal which promptly leaked just as badly as the one they took out.

When I had the horrible vibration issue it was coming from the prop not fitting into the gearbox. Thinking this might have damaged the bush inside the…

Adrian. Are you able to send the Legerra build plans by any chance. I am just about to get into some ground work and have planned a few fixes 1. Chassis strengthening. 2. Radiator move to eliminate hose fretting 3. Roof bolt hole fix for hard top and soft top. 4. Some bodywork repairs at doors and rear small prang issue.
Quick question - does the bonnet come off easy without damage. I need to take a covering off to see how it works but this is just purely advice on this issue at present.
Cheers Jordy

thks for the photos they really help to understand the principle and your explanation is very good. I understand what the fix does and the cause of sagging - this may take a bit of time to sort out and especially handling welding with it all assembled. Bit of planning needed my side - I will be in touch when I am close to starting for a final check so no balls ups.

i suspect the strengthening is the issue. 

Cheers Jordy

ok thanks for that. Are there any pics to show the fix ? Probably be quite obvious when I get it up to look underneath. 

Cheers Jordy

Jordy its not the doors sagging , the Legerra  chassis is bowing and needs a support bar welding underneath

Adrian

planning two new fixes for the next few weeks and would welcome any tips.

Have you had any experience of trying to fix the sagging doors, passenger side is worse so I would like to tackle this one first.

Also have put on the black vinyl roof and quite like the extra headroom it gives. Plan to put in some flanged rubber bushes in the front fixing holes in the frame. Do these standard hoods always come with two fixing positions as it seems to want to lift slightly in the middle at the front especially with excessive wind flow while driving. Extra waterproofing trim maybe useful and will consider this last.

cheers Jordy

Adrian, many thanks for the kind welcome. Yes pdf copy would be great - no panic though.

Good to hear there is a Leggy specialist about as I am sure there will be much advice requested in the future. This is a long term plan for me and good knowledge and background research I have always found to be essential and helps in reducing any silly mistakes. 

i will send over some details on chassis number and engine number if this is ok.

i had signed up on the dutton owners club site and paid the membership fee but didn’t hear anything from that site. Is this site linked or is it not current as many posts seem very old. 

Cheers Jordy
