Re: Front Hubs "Lock" or "Auto" ?

David you have me confused now? The hub cannot be locked by by motion coming from the wheel side, only by motion coming from the side-shaft. thus the hubs will only lock when the transmission is in 4h or 4l. And since the locking mechanism is a cam that sort of "wedges"the mechanism into place, you ...

Re: Front Hubs "Lock" or "Auto" ?

Dieselfan I am not an expert on auto hubs, but my understanding is that it is "slippage" or relative motion with torque between the side shaft and the wheel that causes them to lock. Therefore if you are in 4l and driving on relatively level and hard ground they may not lock. In other words what loc...

Re: Tell me everything about my Patrol

Wouter the difflock warning light is on the other side of the instrument cluster, at the top left. If I remember correctly it is orange and says "diff lock" (not a picture), but I am not sure now. I will try and post a photo for you tomorrow unless one of the other guys beats me. Be advised though o...

Re: Patrol as a retirement vehicle

Koos you can let me know if this is what you expected: Dieselfan, :mytwocents: it makes no financial sense to buy a new car unless your employer forces you to buy new as a company car . On somthing like a 4.8 Patrol, you lose nearly 50% of the car's value the moment you drive it off the dealer floor...

Re: Y60 Petrol Patrol Settings

Thanks Frans

Just two questions:
1) Is there an easy way of making sure the mark is on zero without having to take the head off to get to the piston with a dial gauge?
2) Are the figures you have given usable for all petrol engines?

Thanks
Peter

Re: Defender vs Patrol

Kevin while we are confessing to our sins: when I was a laaitie (just working on your Afrikaans, that word means "little boy"), one of the first books I ever bought was a Landy manual. I was crazy about the things, and my particular favorites were the 1/2 ton and the 101" forward-control. I even bui...

Re: Intercooler efficiency

Cedrick I think you may well be right in what is happening in your intercooler, particularly at lower revs when the air flow is reduced. On most intercoolers I have seen, the outlet and inlet are in opposite corners to try and limit this. I am however not very confident in your proposed fix. :think:...

Re: Y60 Petrol Patrol Settings

Rudolph I have been told by two very experienced dyno tuners (Dennis McBeath from Alpine and Maurice Rosenberg of Auto Rosen) that opening the gap does that here on the highveld, on almost all engines.

Under what conditions does it miss? is the vacuum advance working correctly?
