Re: 29 March - 09 April 2018 Botswana Explorer's Route

Alex, twee dinge: Eerstens, geen TPMS gaan vinnig genoeg reageer om jou van so 'n blowout te waarsku nie. Die band het effektief van buite af uitmekaar geval, en die TPMS het niks daarvan geweet totdat een van daai dwars skeure gebeur het nie, en in ek reken die banddruk het in minder as 2 sekondes ...

Re: 4500 EFI Engine for sale

Last night while sipping on a brandy, I was pondering the idea of a Cummins diesel in a Patrol... Has anyone done such a conversion? :gotpics: When this thread started, I did some calculations and I am a little concerned about the gear ratios, as this is a very slow-revving engine. Having said that...

Janee - Silinda Spilway is NIE 'n grap in reenseisoen nie. Respek vir julle wat hom aangepak an klaargemaak het Oom Mac, die Spilway self was kinderspeletjies teenoor sommige van die plekke waar ons gery het. Daar was plekke waar Errol en Graham (as gevolg daarvan dat hulle kleiner bande as die res...

Re: 29 March - 09 April 2018 Botswana Explorer's Route

Jip. All of us have driven through mud before. But none of us for miles and miles. The moral of the story is that all of us (guide included) were un-prepared for the wet conditions, the mud and the rain, and we started falling behind shcedule right from the start. Also, in mitigation I would like to...

Re: 27 April to 1 May 2018 - Swaziland - CANCELLED!!!!!

Malccolm, ek weet nog nie hoekom dit gebeur het nie, maar in die Khwai area het ek oliedruk verloor en 'n big-end knock begin hoor.

Maar ek het nog omtrent 170km verder gery daarna... Sal die naweek begin strip en sien hoeveel skade ek gedoen het.

Re: Shadecloth cover radiator

Having the shade cloth in front of the bumper leaves it vulnerable to thorn bushes. Whether this will be an issue depends on the type of trip. I personally feel that under the conditions where grass seeds will be a problem, vehicle speed and engine load is likely to be fairly low, and thus a heavier...

Re: 29 March - 09 April 2018 Botswana Explorer's Route

My heartfelt thanks to one and all. What an trip, and what a great group te be part of.

Once again i was humbled by the cameraderie.

Especially to Errol, who towed me back 1700km after my oil pressure finally disappeared, and my 4.5 started sounding like a 2.5 diesel Isuzu...
