Re: Snorkel joint sealant??

Agree that if you ever want to remove it, stay away from sikaflex or any sealant for that matter. When I designed and built my snorkel, I worked on clamping those pipe joints, but as usual, things just don't work out where the pipes go through the body and have to meet the box. It was a bit of work,...

Re: Patrol/Safari bits for Sani

I have 6 off M10 x 1.25 bolts, 70mm long. They have 30mm of thread. Can that help? Thanks Peter, but I'm afraid not. But thanks for the contacts to those companies. I will be in contact with them and see what they have. I have however discovered other problems I first need to sort out. The safari t...

Re: Patrol/Safari bits for Sani

Thanks for the info Peter. I was worried about that, and thats why I rather asked before causing trouble. I am already worried about putting double the torque to that TC compared to a standard Safari installation, and how the mounts and chassis fixtures are going to handle it. I started asking at BM...

Re: Patrol/Safari bits for Sani

??? I have no idea. But I would assume the assembly instructions would be very similar, even iff the exact model is different. As for a torque wrench, you could make a plan using a strongarm and a suitable draw-scale. Or a rope-and-pulley system, although that is cumbersome to work with. But I wond...

Re: 35x12.5x15

I'm also looking for one or two old tyres of that size. They can really be knackered, it's just for testing clearances on my Hardbody to see what needs to be moved/cut, especially on the front end. Already running 33s, and it looks like the 35s will fit, but rather measure and do stuff while the veh...

Re: Patrol porn......

Old Dave in his Jeep also did very well with that obstacle. I think things happen faster with a shorter wheel base vehicle.

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....
