90 Bulhead Bolts.

Morning all.

I need to take the big bolts at the bottom corners of the bulkhead, where it
joins the chassis, out for a few minutes each side.

When I do this do I need to support the bulkhead somewhere? Don't want the
bulkhead or anything else fastened by those bolts to move out of allignment!
I'm sort of assuming that there must be loads of smaller bolts round the
bulkhead, not to mention lots of rust and mank, which will generally hold it
together...

Thanks for any advice.

M.

If it anything like a series motor, the only other bits that hold the
bulkhead in place apart from those 2 bolts are:

2(maybe 4?) bolts in each footwell that go into 2 uprights that are
bolted to the chassis.
The line across the top of the windscreen that fix to a solid roof (if
you have one)
There are a pair (sometimes only one) little bars that pull the engine
side top of the bulkhead down towards the chassis uprights.
The steering column assembly also tends to hold it in place.

In my experience, if its a proper landrover you can unbolt everything
and it wont fall off until youve given it a good kicking! :) (the rust
should hold it together)

Thanks Tom. You were right, there was no problem unbolting them. In fact
they undid easily and slid out of their tubes easily and went back easily.
Nothing moved out of alignment.

The worst part of the job was getting the sills off; they are held on with
loads of little 10mm nuts and bolts all of which had rusted, siezed and were
generally covered in mud and cow dung.

A long day but all done now. Looking forward to finding some rocks to slide
on. :o)
