Default Carrier parts required in Australia

Hello all, new to the carrier game and need an assortment of items to rebuild an LP2A and a British Mk1.

I intend to rebuild these to be operationally correct when viewed from outside but I will utilize whatever radiator / engines / gearbox etc that are available as I feel that if they are hidden under covers and get it operational then that is an acceptable compromise.

If I cannot get hold of original parts I will be manufacturing replica items.

REQUIRED for the LP2A
  1. Radiator (Probably going to try the alloy modern version but if a good original comes up then good)
  2. Oil cooler On the way thanks to David in Vic as well as a track winch
  3. Engine still needed, first one ended up with a really bad cylinder so before sleeving it I want to find another block or engine.
  4. G/box Probably OK to use one I have, rear support Found thanks Andrew and “wishbone” gear change bar still looking.
  5. 8 point drive coupling (g/box to diff)
  6. Dash/ instruments
  7. 1 x drive Hub
  8. 2 x axle shafts
  9. Handbrake lever assembly / got a lever but could still use a cable if anyone has one.
  10. 2 x front suspension units
  11. 1 x LH rear suspension unit
  12. OR trailing arms and springs / rods / spacers to rebuild existing.
  13. LH Idler / track adjuster bracket and adjuster levers left and right hands.
  14. Fuel tank / or fittings, filler caps, fuel pick ups etc.
  15. Headlamp units
  16. Horn
    Rear view mirror assembly or bits

REQUIRED for the Brit MK1
  1. Track, 1 side of track for the brit carrier is needed.
  2. Oil cooler
  3. Radiator
  4. Engine Got a21 stud that should work
  5. G/box with "wishbone" change bar and box rear support
  6. Coupling to a splined pinion
  7. Gear changing linkage, complete unit is reqd
  8. 1 x cross shaft
  9. 2 x front suspension unit Have sourced a pair of these. Thanks to Rob
  10. 2 x rear suspension unit (LH and RH)
  11. 1 x cross shaft support box and roller for LH side
  12. Dash / Instrumentation
  13. 2 x road wheel / idlers Found
  14. 2 x diff mount bracket
  15. Head lamps and horn
    Rear view mirror assembly or bits

Probably not a complete list yet but that is an initial estimate.

Thanks

Default Handbrake

I think I still have some NOS handbrakes but they need to have the mount modified as the Carrier used a Ford car type handbrake with it's own mount.

List updated.
Hope everyone has a great Christmas and a happy new year.

Got a mate with a few items who I will see in the new year, so hoping a lot of the suspension and running gear on the LP will be sorted from his spare bits.
