Re: Warped Discs



The discs are still in-spec, so they're going to give them a skim tomorrow. If that doesn't sort it out, I'm settling my bill and taking it to Graham.

Ian

So they have actually done nothing to sort out the problem but are going to present you with a bill. If the discs are that warped you would feel the brakes take and release if you apply them softly.

I would tell them to keep their bill until the problem has been identified by an expert (Graham)and then pay them for what actually needed doing.

Re: Warped Discs

I guess it depends on how the discs are warped.

If they have gone "wobbly" (wich is almost always the way it goes), then it you can definately feel uneven braking when coasting very slowly and applying the brakes softly. Sometimes the pedal may feel spongy and you might also feel feedback, almost as if the ABS is working, particularly at low speed. If this is the case, generally most of the pad contacts the disc at some point in the roation of the wheel though. Braking force is reduced and it becomes difficult to accurately modulate the brakes, and skimming is certainly recommended.

On the other hand (in theory), if the disks have somehow become either concave or convex, it might more accurately describe the symptoms. You will not feel a wobble as described above, and new pads will not seat correctly. One will seat on the outer edge, the other on the inner. Brakes will feel spongy as in reality you are flexing the calipers to align with the discs. However, once the pads are worn in, the symptoms will dissappear.

I have however never actually seen a disc warped like this, and don't know if it can really happen. Kinda doubt it, but I am not prepared to put anything on a block.

Also note that a caliper mounted skew (due to dirt under the mounting points or similar) would produce exactly the same results and is far more likely to happen...

Re: 1998 GRX stock speakers?

Mine is a GL model, and I fitted Kicker 60W RMS(nominal) split system ( http://www.kicker.com/11DS62 ). If I recall, I ffitted 6" front and rear, but I believe the 6.5" will fit too. There is a black plastic dish that the speaker fits into and If I recall there was a little space when I fitted the 6" in mine. If anything you might need to file the plastic a fraction to get the speaker to seat 100%, BUT I may be wrong on this.

Check this.... http://www.4wdadventurers.com/showthread.php?441-GU-Patrol-door-trims-Removing-and-Re-Fitting

I can recommend the Kicker DS series speakers, and Christo ( Chuck Norris ) told me to spend a few Rands extra and rather take these Kicker speakers. He is an audio guru and a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to sound quality, and I must say that these speakers are phenomenal. I am just running them off the head unit, ok it is a very good Pioneer head unit, and they play clear even at high volume ( Iron Maiden cannot be played softly ). I also have a Kicker Hideaway subwoofer ( http://www.kicker.com/11HS8 ) that connects to the RCA outputs of the headunit. This combination is amazing !!! The sub may not look very big....but boy oh boy it adds a dimension to the sound quality that is amazing !! I have this sub loosely sitting under my seat. I may even get another one and fit under the wife"s seat.... :surprised: :surprised: :surprised:

Re: Ironman Suspension

I fitted my set 80 000 odd km's ago and have had absolutely no problems so far. They initially fitted the load (heavy duty) coils, but I found them too hard, and had them replaced with the comfort coil and a set of gas shocks and they work for me - both on and offroad, the ride is superb!

Previously discussed. Remember to get the sway bar extension brackets if this is a 50 mm lift. You may need the to get the OME ones.

Re: Warn Winch Service

If you open that winch be very careful not to dismantle the brake system that resides inside the drum - this unit is pretensioned by a spring and if you take it apart you will never get it together again - I had to take it to an expert to get it sorted... :mytwocents:

Re: Warn Winch Service

If you do get it together again, the best way to check it is to hook the winch on something, engage the gear lever and then try pulling it by reversing in low range...
I screwed up a winch motor because brake was not working well and everytime I stopped winching, the boat started rolling back off the trailer, so could not let the amps build and motor cool off.

Re: Sub-Tank Capacity

Some of the Gl's did not come out with the sub-tank. I think it was an optional extra on them. The GRX models have the sub-tank as standard. This is for the 4.5 and should also be on the 4.2D GU.

PS: You're right - those clip-on antennas don't work as well as the ones that are bolted onto the body-work...

Re: n kans om die noord kaap se duine te ry ....

Ian.

Daai is die regte pad. Tot en met Postmasburg gaan jy baja mooi pad ry. Uit Postmasburg tot by die N8 gaan jy grondpad ry. Die pad is ook mooi jy sal so 80km/h kan ry. Die N8 is werklik baja mooi ook. Van Postmasburg af tot by Transboegoe(Boegoeberg), ons kampplek sal jy so 2ure ry. Maak maar vol in Postmasburg. Die Sasol garage is by Jimbos. Daar kan jy ook hout ys en die nodige proviant aanskaf. Jy gaan verras wees met Postmasburg, ons het al van 2010, 1100 huise hier gebou.

Maats het dan ook met Tinus gesels, ons gaan Vrydag en dan Saterdag op die roete ook braai, so maak sekker dat jy n worsie en n broodtjie saamvat. Cooler box is ook baja belangerik. Ons sal sommer hout maak op die roete. Dit is vir die braai op die roete. By die kampplek moet ons nogsteeds ons eie hout saambring. Dan kan julle ook n paar snacks saambring veral vir tussen die etes. Veral op die roete.

Ja dit gaan baja lekker wees. Wag vir julle daar Donderdag.

Groete

Re: Recovery Point Bolts

They are definately M14 x 1.5, unless somebody has somehow modified it.

But if there hasn't been anything in those holes for many years, then the thread can be very dirty, preventing a bolt from going in.

You can try two things:
1) see if you can hire a tap.
2) modify a bolt into a "temporary tap". Cut a groove into a bolt with a cutting blade on an angle grinder, going against the direction of turning, if possible harden it, and use it slowly and with lots of oil.

Re: Tinus se 4.2TD bakkie!!

Ian, the engine comes out quite easy actually. Once the radiator is out there is enough space in front of the engine to move it forward and then lift it up from the top.
