Re: Vibration in rearview mirror of background

More Jules
As jy met gewig in die voertuig ,nie vibrasie voel (hand op rat hefboom of in spieetjies sien nie ),maar wel as die voertuig leeg is ,moet jy maar kyk na daai droe kruis koppelinge !!!
die hoek van die dryf-as verander sodra daar gewig in die voertuig is ,en die hoek word minder en die dryf-as word reguiter

Ek het dieselfde problem nou net op GRX op getel

Re: Dual Battery 4.8...Need your views please.

Hi Guys,
if you want to put a second battery into your vehicle ,try those batteries we use in the rally cars
They are robust small lightweight durable and pricy,but is worth it.You can mount them flat or straight up,as you wish
its about the size of a cd shuttle
I use them on my boat and has never failed me and are over 4years old
ATS in JHB sells them .speak to Robin Hougton.:salute:

Re: Patrol low speed squeek

Hi Guys,Just an important bit of info on handbrakes
when you take your car in for a service ,and you ask them"pse check the brakes aswell",that new parts fitter guy that is now "servicing" your car checks the hand brakes pulls up more than 3 clicks.....
what does he do,sort cut !!!! adjust the handbrake cable shorter till you can only get 1 click on the handbrake lever :redface: :redface: :redface:
WRONG::
the handbrake cable is there to assist with the routing of the braking mechanism and not to take the slack up between the brake drum and linings
the correct way is ,not to be lazy,jack the rear wheels of the ground,so that the wheels to spin,
SLACK the handbrake cable adjuster off (normally inside the car at handbrake lever),make sure car is in neutral and the prop can turn
THEN adjust the handbrake adjuster at the handbrake drum,till it locks the rear prop ,then slowly release the adjuster till prop turns without grabbing.once you happy ,and only then, do you adjust the handbrake cable.
Hope this will help

Re: 1984 Safari 2.8 Modifikasie na 4.2 petrol

as ek kan raad gee,,,maak die 2.8l reg en sit dit terug,
daar is altyd iets wat jou gaan byt met n conversion,groot enjin ,meer gewig op voorwiele,nou moet jy krag stuur opsit want jy sukkel om te draai ,en so groei die problem en kostes,dis net 1 gedagte,daar is baie sulke goeters wat onbeplan opduik
daai oorgeboude L28 gaan vir jou 20jaar se lekker kry gee

Re: 4.2TDI Gearbox Should i worry

A release bearing only rotates when the clutch pedal is depressed and the release bearing makes contact with the fingers on the pressure plate,hence therefor if there is a noise when vehicle is idling
but goes away ones the clutch is pressed in ,its not the release bearing or the clutchplate,the clutch plate is now stationery as is the complete gearbox ,all has been disconnected from engine.thats
the function of a clutch assembly

Re: ZD30 Head Gasket

Hi Bruce
just read your post on cylinder head ,the problem I have picked up on a couple of engines I recond ,when the engineering company skims the cylinder head and cylinder block ,the result is not a smooth finish but a rough finish
and that in the olden days was ok because the gaskets weren't made of steel and beds nicely into the grooves,but with a steel gasket and stretch headbolts......it does not seal properly. so before you go and have the cylinder head crack tested
and all sorts ,check the finishing on both head and block. it has to be a smooth finish :mytwocents: :mytwocents:

Re: Cooling fan stops and makes rattling noise

Hi Ricster...the 4.5 has a bottom halve section of the radiator cowling which unclip,then you undo the two brackets and water hoses on the radiator and the complete radiator and cowling comes out
its then very easy to slacken v-belts and get to viscous etc. : :thumbup: :eureka: :thumbup:

Re: Suspension options

Hi Guys ,I have got the 2' EFS lift kit on my green Patrol and it offers a nice ride ,how ever the right front shock failed after just 6 month and 5000km and one river trip...would not recommend
My red Patrol has std coils and OME shocks and steering damper which is 8 years old and is still perfect and the ride is perfect,there is a bit of a nose drop ,but due to bull bar and winch
Will definitely recommend OME :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Re: ZD30 cheap rebuild met fotos

Hi Guys,to all our diesel fanatics out there
The first sign of the injectors starting to play up ,is when you park your car at nite and the next morning you start it up and there is the rough coughing and white smoke and clattering of the engine....
the injectors cant hold its required pressures and it starts to leak RAW fuel onto the piston ,in doing so it also washes all lubrication of the cylinders . so when you want to start your engine in the morning,
the compression has now doubled because of raw diesel that leak through injector is now lying on top of piston and the friction of the piston is increased against the cleaned cylinder.
the crown of the piston takes the knock and starts to get hairline cracks which needless to say eventually lets go .
It pays to have those injectors calibrated and tested every 80 000- 100 000km

Re: HELP please

Barry on that invoice 'recon engine' doesn't mean much....can of engine heat paint ...R54.00 I can make your engine look like its reconditioned
Did he put new sleeve kits in (piston rings gudgin pin and sleeves)
Did he hone the block and put new rings in
Did he rebore
was the main bearings and big ends replaced
was the oil pump replaced
was the timing chain and guides replace
was the welsh plugs replaced
was the cylinderhead reconditioned (valve seats valve guides)
waterpump etc etc etc
The list goes on and I think that oakkie must give you a proper breakdown of what was done...
You as owner of that vehicle needs peace of mind that you can go on the next River trip or Swazi trip hassle free :mytwocents: :woo: :mytwocents:
