Re: 3.0 - V8 conversion

The owner of JR's exhausts in Roodepoort has or had a GQ with an old Yank V8 in it. Unfortunately I have no idea who did the job, or anything else about it. Tommie had a modern Chev V8 in his previous car, tuned to deliver very serious power. He did have some issues with gearbox and rear diff during...

Re: TD42 TDI

In die GU's het die TB42 en TD42 dieselfde ratverhoudings en final drives gebruik.

Re: 4x4 propshaft

Cedric, it would do that. But any irregularity in the film thickness is going to cause some vibration,. The manufacturers don't use any grease here, and i reckon that's good enough for me. And in the unlikely event you do get some corrosion in there, it'l just help keep the joint together. :mytwocen...

Re: 4x4 propshaft

No grease on that joint please! Bit of loctite on the bolts and nuts won't do any harm though. I agree with Andre, 10.9 or even 12.9 bolts will be best if you can get. Note that with high-grade bolts like this, torquing is very important. The bolt supplier should be able to advise you on the correct...

Re: Bump Stops

Unless the shocks are the incorrect length, the spring should go coil-bound (IE the coils touch each other and the spring becomes essentially a solid tube of metal) before the shocks run out of stroke. If this happens, potentially one could bend or tear/crack the spring perch. However, I think one w...
