Hi I know we’re there is a UMM chassis cab with no body on, it is restoration project, are you interested?
What are the details on this one Bobisok?
They used to be on the site here but I can’t find them anymore, let me know your email and I’ll send it to you as a pdf.
I’ve been looking for one for a few years now! No clues or luck so far…Quote:Quote from Nelson123 on August 3, 2016, 10:14

Please send me a PM with the details in – or I will send you my email on there.
- A defender box will not fit onto an UMM – I have tried this!
– I had mine reconditioned, is there somewhere close to you that can do it? I had a local power steering company in Callington, Cornwall that did the work for me.
2. you should be able to get hold of the parts fairly easily from any Jeep supplier and rebuild it yourself, or a gearbox/drivetrain company will do the same for you.April 1, 2016 at 2:47 pm in reply to: UMM Alter / Alter II – Rear Disc Brake Upgrade Kit #989
Bump. Still for sale.
All packaged up and ready to go.
George – did you take any pictures of the pto on the gearbox? Any part numbers or more info about it? I REALLY want to find one!!
And a few more pictures of the lanes around the Tavistock area, South West of Dartmoor.
Also a day greenlaning with the http://www.armchairlanes.co.uk gang who are based here in Plymouth… so many good lanes, I was knackered after the day out from concentration and manhandling the Alter II around the place! The river crossing was also quite fun… if a bit worrying with the amount I was getting pushed to one side!
A little video here by one of the lads:
Check out the UMM action at: 3:26 & 5:10
Gloriously converting diesel to noise & off road prowess.
Also a brilliant christmas present from Lance, Emma & the Transcat….
A Peugeot Diesel Engine (504 / 505) Haynes Manual! I’ve been looking for one of these for a while so a gift of a spare they had is a great one! Gradually devouring all the extra information within this.
Quite a bit of work on the Alter II recently after I dragged it out of its summer hibernation ready for a winter on the moors and hauling things around!
- rear brakes rebuilt
- all but one of the glow plugs recently died so replaced those with a set of NGK 3473 Y-924J, now starts as it used to within milliseconds of the key being turned after the plug light goes out.
- rusty spots on the side flanks have been cut out and new patches welded in
- leaky governor seal ontop of the diesel pump has been replaced by City Auto Diesel in Plymouth
- heater circuit (the blue box) had the armature sitting a bit wonky and was just buzzing rather than activating the heating circuit, some judicious bending and wobbling by Lance (with the red transcat) had it going again!
- fan belts all tightened up after a lot of squealing!
- cab heater switch stripped and contacts re-bent
As a note… this is the first time UMM has been leak free! No diesel, oil or transmission or axle oil anywhere beneath him! (and yes, he does have some in him 😉
Also recently popped over to help with the Transcat on the other side of town, the front braking system is being rebuilt at the moment and at the same time as helping I got my heater plug problem properly diagnosed!
This was an awfully long time ago but I have a kit for this for sale on eBay from 7pm this evening – I’ve never got around to fitting.
Before you chuck it put it to one side! You may have to get it reconditioned, please note that it has a NINE tooth pinion and must not be replaced with anything else.
The part number if you can find one is:
Transcat (included for any owners doing a search in the future!)
Paris Rhone – D8E57 or D11E156 (original fitment)
Paris Rhone – D11E195 or DSR10516D2 (original fitment)
Hella – CS128 (replacement)
LUCAS – LRS 331(replacement)
Starter motors fitted to Peugeot 504 & 505 cars that could also fit include:
Ducellier – 6109 or 6207
Bosch – JF2KW or 001362045
Paris Rhone – D11E126 or D11E142 or D11E156 or D11E179
This info I liberated from one of the old UMM Club alternative parts guides PDF – should be available on this site somewhere together with a bunch of old magazines scanned in as PDF – some of the early ones were really good with technical info and suggestions.. also an interesting read when these vehicles were available in period.
Good luck and let us know how you get on!
ps. I can’t see Filipe list one on his website but might be worth dropping him an email: firstname.lastname@example.org (www.pecas-umm.com) – he’s been pretty helpful with getting parts for mine.
Cory, you weren’t emailing me, I stuck this up on the forum as I saw it on ebay for sale – not actually mine.
If you’re in the states then perhaps keep an eye on the UMM Portuguese forum and you’ll be able to pick up a left hand drive one – ideal for your roads!
I plan on changing my stationwagon to a pickup soon and will be doing similar. I was going to use steel tubing that I’ll, cut, bend and weld to fit. You should see where the attachment holes are already in the pickup bed sides? I was going to get it galvanized afterwards.
As for the cloth top I’d look at your local sailmakers/boat cover makers. I have a friend who runs a business in Southampton called Sail Style that I was thinking about asking or I was going to pop up to Exmoor Trim (famous for making rag tops for landrovers) to see if they could make a custom one or adapt a landy one to suit. They have quite an array. Theres also a charity that employs disabled people near us called PLUSS, they do tons of stuff but have a fabric manufacturing place where they make up boat covers, camper van interiors etc – they’ve done tonneau covers for one of my sports cars before, maybe you’ve somewhere like this near you?
Let us know how you get on and stick up some pictures!
Got a picture of the damaged section? It is fairly thick steel (for car bodywork), so should be relatively easy to weld a new section in pretty seamlessly…
Regarding the windscreen, as it’s flat it’s pretty easy to get one cut to fit. Our local RAC Car Windscreen shop cut glass to size a few years ago and fitted easily.
Any chance you can stick some pictures and description up on the forum of the PTO? I’m very keen to get one on the Alter II!
Ahh excellent, I saw the red one buzzing through Sidmouth a few times. Looks good!
Easy work welding that bed back up too.
