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

Cedric, water works a treat to remove the fine particles in the oil. Fine spray of water over the oil, and as it settles to the bottom, it picks up the rubbish on the way down. Then you just drain off above the water level. Then run it through another water trap at a good temp. I used to set up blac...

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

Have any of you guys found that the next fuel filter change came up very quickly after going over to BIO? When I have not used cooking oil for a long time, and then go back, I find the filter picks up all kinds of stuff that normal diesel allows to stay behind. Algae being the biggest culprit.

Re: Installing manual hubs

That Hub should just replace the old HUB as is... Any snap ring on the side shaft should have been there before you started. That manual HUB is an EXACT replica of the Hardbody unit. The inner ring jobby that slides over the side shaft, gets held in place by the HUB cover, and will not move outward....

Re: Buick patrol hybrid

H233 behoort .. H260 definitief. C200 weet ek nie so lekker nie. Ek sien die Aussie manne hardloop 40"-42", so 37" behoort nie probleem te wees nie.

Re: Buick patrol hybrid

Gaan jou TC posisie en kort prop so bly? Ek vra maar net oor ek so groot moeite met myne doen om alles perfek in lyn te kry met minste hoeke tussen mekaar.

Re: 35" BFG on 15" steel rims

If those rims were deeper offset, I would have been interested in two of them. I have same rims, but with a -40mm offset on the Sani. Also would have liked to get my hands on any old 35" tyre so I can do some measuring on the Sani to make space for them under the wheel arches.

Re: Alternator 101

Tell me about it... I really like the idea. With the cooling it is possible to get a whole lot more out of the alternator without the heat problems. Seems VW and BMW use it extensively, but at that price :confused: Gees, I can buy about 10 alternators for my 2.7TD for R28K without shipping and impor...
