Re: Opinions on 98 Y61 4.2 non turbo

Is there much difference in the Y60 and Y61 drivetrain? Heard one thing to also check are the axle seals I believe?! Not sure where to look. Practically no difference that you could notice on a test drive. Y61 has slightly stronger axles and lost the facility to mount a PTO take-off on the main gea...

Re: Opinions on 98 Y61 4.2 non turbo

See if you can find an old Cruiser 4.2 pickup for sale in your valley, and take that for a test drive. The engines are very similar in terms of output and delivery, so it will give you a very good idea of how fast this will be.

Re: Opinions on 98 Y61 4.2 non turbo

Welcome

It's got a forum sticker, so probably is known. I will let the diesel fans answer you as to the relative merits of this vehicle, but I am just wondering what happenned to that rear seat belt...

Re: Namakwa Eco Route

I just want to add that there are some beautiful stretches on the other side of the river. I spent a day driving from Vioolsdrift to Sendelingsdrift in July last year, wild-camping somewhere next to the Orange. It was fabulous!

Re: TYRE WIDTH/TYPE VS FUEL CONSUMPTION

I went from 33x12.5 AT's to 32x11.5 Muddies to 265/70R16 HT's to 255/85R16 muddies.

No repeatable difference in fuel consumption, except in soft sand, where the narrow tyres have a noticeable advantage.

Re: My name is Danie Schoonwinkel and i am an addict.

Baie welkom Danie. Solid EN19 is onnodig. Jy kan natuurlik as jy wil, maar ASTM A106 pyp, as ek reg onthou 1.25" (maar dalk 1.125") Schedule 160 is wat die fabriek gebruik het. Dis meer as sterk genoeg, sonder om so sterk te wees dat jy die hub carriers breek as jy in 'n stomp vasry of op 'n klip ga...

Re: 18 to 20 May 2018 - Moegatle

I'm out. Murphy's got me by the short and curlies. I had hoped to start the engine on Saturday, but haven't managed to yet. Which means that i don't have enough time to run it in acceptably. And I was really looking forward to testing the longer shocks and shorter low range. Anybkdy feel like settin...
