Re: The Story of My TD42 Build

Cedric, I bought studs the other day. 1.25 pitch and the correct head size (just can't remember what that is), from a local bolt supplier. Pretty sure they can get longer as well. Supplier is Turbo Fasteners (http://turbofasteners.co.za/), and they are basically just over the road from Tentco. Price...

Re: Bio Diesel.... The Iron Maiden is going Green !!!

The Firetruck has now used 400 l of biodiesel and I have been able to accurately measure open road consumption and the results are not great. About 6 weeks ago I did a trip with my Conqueror Comfort in tow and got 8,03 km/l with normal diesel which I was over the moon with. Michael has really done a...

Re: Bio Diesel.... The Iron Maiden is going Green !!!

Well...... I also used some chip oil on the way to the dunes last weekend and here are my findings. As Dave said, I also got 5,5km/L towing Atties Patrol bakkie. I was not loaded very heavy and his bakkie was also just a medium load. The engine sounded very much like before and temps were very low, ...

Re: Patrols for Sale - Various sites

Oom....I don't think that that is a 1999. Did the pickup shape also not change in 1998 to the GU shape? Yes Cedric, as far as I know all the GQ bakkies are 1999 models. Think only 44 made it to our shores...... heard it from someone at Nissan. The one I bought a whike back is also a 1999 so seems l...
