Re: What are they for?

Clem, your first guess was correct. The are for lashing during transport. Definitely not to be used for snatch recoveries please. On your 4.8, there is a very heavy-duty hook bolted to the bottom of the driver's side chassis leg. This is a very good recovery point. If you want, you can purchase a se...

TC Drive chain

Hallo gents and to all those with interest in the Transfer case issue. First of all I must say I'm not a gearbox/TC expert myself but with a little CDF you will understand the basic mechanics of the Tc quite easily. To start of I basically had two problems. 1 was a tack tack noise that varied with s...

Re: Transfer Case Assembly Procedure

Gents forgive me if I step on toes here, but I am going to reply to a couple of things here, some is speculative and some with credit, just to remove confusion. Interesting. Why is the thing chain driven and how robust is that setup? Weight, space and efficiency is the major factors here. weighs les...

Re: Transfer Case Assembly Procedure

Received the Tc counter gear from the stealers on Friday. That was not a pleasant visit at the price. Never the less I checked the gear right there and complained about the rusty main gear that I got from them a week before. Manager tells me it is because it comes from Japan. I would hope it does bu...

Re: Transfer Case Assembly Procedure

So back to what it is all about. I took my chances and was aware of the potential dangers and I did keep that counter gear in the box, sealed it up and installed the piece of junk back into the car with undesirable results.

Re: PATROL RIDE QUALITY

Hm. My brand new Patrol that is now only just run gets steering wobble on what seems to be a perfectly smooth freeway. Not constantly but on and off and sufficient that the passengers notice. Even driving dead straight. First question: Is this normal? I assume not. Second question: Do I tell the lo...

Re: PATROL RIDE QUALITY

I do not think this is normal or correct. On the other hand, it only takes a very small problem to generate these results in a Patrol, and many cars seem to have it. Some cars seem to be more problematic than others. I had a problem for a while, but it was due to very badly worn ball joints on the d...

Re: PATROL RIDE QUALITY

Clem, I only have the number for the Y60, and I can't guarantee that it is correct for your car. It is checked with a spring balance.

Re: PATROL RIDE QUALITY

Clem, 0.6 - 1.75kg, measured at the hole of tie rod's ball joint.

Note that this measurement is to be made without the grease seal on the back and with the side shaft removed, so it's a bigger job than I thought!
