Re: Water crossings with TB45

Ruan, 'n pel van my het al sy fan lemme afgebreek in die Khwai rivier. Sorg dat die viscous fan af is voor jy inry. Mens kan hom mos hoor. As jy dit doen, behoort dit nie nodig te wees om belde af te haal of enige so iets nie. Ek het met my ou 2.7td Hardbody sommer twee ou olie filter seals gevat e...

Re: Ipad as Instrument Cluster on TD42

Oh this is a great question, and I can't wait to see a tech savvy member's reply. I have started scratching a bit to do the same thing to my "Safani". Also looking to find out if you can replace the old Safari TC speedo pickup with an electronic unit, as I would prefer to pick that data up further d...

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.
