    Wasn't sketch. We went down to I70 then down clear creek canyon to golden. Much more gradual grade and slower speeds Towed at 55mph on 470 to university just fine.

    So the hose I broke isn't available anywhere. Checked Rovers North, Atlantic British, Major autoparts chains, parts geek, rock auto, EBAY US and UK, british rover parts websites and landrover parts. I'm likely going to use these adapters and make a custom braided line setup. https://m.summitracing.com/parts/rus-670280

    Well if you make a custom braided line there is a good chance it won't fail again anytime in the near future. Best of luck and hope to see you on the trail again soon.

    I was needing the Trans cooler to radiator line but I've since put together a full AN fitting and braided line system. The last 2 fittings should show up tonight and I bought a M10x1.5 tap today to mount my trans fluid temp sensor into the body of one of the fittings. Going to start on the assembly this weekend.

    This has been a pain in the ass. So the transmission adapters to AN6 are like M15x1.5 threads, the radiator adapters are 3/8" NPT to AN6 and to adapt the trans cooler to AN6 I had to get 1/2" BSP to AN6 female swivel adapters. The 2 pieces of the 3 hoses for this system from Atlantic British are over $200 and I put all of this together for about $290 so I'm breaking even but now from this point on I'll be able to fix it better. Since I'll just be working with AN6 braided line and hose end fittings that I carry a small spare amount for. I'll feel much better about being able to fix this going forward and I'll trust the hoses.

    Woohoo I now have all 6 of the AN adapters I needed to convert the various Landrover fittings to AN fittings. This weekend is assembly begins. This has been a challenge to figure out. I'm going to do a write up and post it on multiple landrover forums so the resource is out there for others going forward. Assuming it all works out allrigh.

    It's alive. Again. The AN6 transmission cooling line project is now complete. Going to run it around all week to shake it down more.

    Today was about taking care of some loose ends. Noticed the back seat floor was getting really really hot (melted carpet backing to floor). Found a heat shield had been missing for who knows how long. I went to depot and got 2 sheets of 12" x 24" aluminum and a package of fiberglass cloth. I cut one sheet 1" shorter than the full sized one along 2 edges. Then I sorted and folded the fiberglass to give me 6 layers of glass in the footprint of the cut piece of aluminum. I then trimmed the corners of the full size sheet for folding around the cut sheet and crimped the excess 1/2" of aluminum evenly around the cut sheet. This resulted in a sandwich of aluminum/fiberglass/aluminum. I then used some hardware and the factory heat shield mounting points to install it over my muffler.. It works wonderfully no hot floor, no rattles, and a very solid and durable install.
