Re: Nissan Patrol 4.2D Motorhome conversion

Would have been nice to know a bit more about the camper itself. Things like water capacity, and what amenities are included...

Not that I am in the market anyway.

Re: Diff lock not engaging

If there is vacuum, the plunger is "in". Seems like it's not the solenoid after all. is there an "egg on face" emoji?

There is a control box somewhere under the radio that affects the operation of the unit. Please speak to Graham for more info?

Re: Front Flex

Any un-controlled motion effectively has the potential to cause death wobble or similar symptoms.

Re: Front Flex

Heims have no movement. Every shock load is transferred directly through the chassis. I think on off- road racers they are replaced vdry frequently. Rubber, on the other hand, is practically immune to shock loads. Assuming enough rubber is used, and used correctly to handle the maximum forces. This ...

Re: Front Flex

Heim joints will be a pain to live with. It makes a car extremely loud, clunky and harsh-sounding, and I don't think it's suitable for anything other than a racing vehicle or weekend toy. And because a four-link setup is only accurate enough if heim-jointed, to my mind that excludes that setup for t...

Re: low range gears

Cedric, i think something has gotten lost in translation here. I want lower T/C ratios to be able to go slower in extreme rock crawling. Just as you say, idling in first gear. Slow enough to get out and check my line. If you saw the two jeeps going up Koos se Klim this weekend, you will understand j...

Re: low range gears

In fact, i would be inclined to say that the ideal transfer case ratio would be one where 5th low sits between 1st and 2nd high. But then the transfer case should ideally also have synchromesh, at least on high range. And of course, should you ever find enough traction, you would be able to destroy ...

Re: low range gears

Julian, remember that you still have your high range gear ratios in tact. To my mind, if you are expecting to be able to reach 60km/h, you would probably be better off in high range. Even with 3.735:1, you still have a lot of overlap between high and low. Speaking for myself only, I would not be int...
