    When I did mine I just flared the ends (carefully) using a small ball-pein hammer as all it has to do is provide a location into the wheel boxes rather than any sort of seal. The bits are available from Stafford Vehicle Components but they aren't cheap. I bought my Land Rover one from eBay.

    Looking on the internet auction site, there are a few Land rover Defender kits for around £80.00, look very similar to the KCS kit so might be worth a punt after what English Impala has said?

    The Land Rover wheelboxes are odd and suitable for LR wiper arms only BUT Morris Minor/Mini wheel boxes are interchangeable.

    Ah, ok, looks like it might be a case of trying your cut 'n' shut idea and a recon motor if it looks like working or the KCS system if I balls it up!

    If you haven't got a flaring tool (or can't buy on), decades ago (in a yonder land far far away!!) I used a MK2 Jag wipers on my Austin Somerset and "cut & shut" the tube (as the 2 wheel boxes on the S'set are closer) and the surplus tube I slit down it's length (I was only 1 or 2 inches long) and it now became a "female" tube and pushed it half way over one end, then pushed the free cut end of the wheelbox tube into the now "new" sleeve which hold the two rack tubes together. A small amount of either solder or braze (or two very small jubilee clips) will stop the tubes parting during the pull-push operations of the wiper.

    I have just checked mine and I actually used copper central heating micro-bore pipe for my replacement tube, it came from Wickes.

    Early minors had an under dash system. Single speed though and clap hand.

    Just pop your cut-to-length tubes to your local garage or motor factors - bet they'd flare them for a pint.
