Plesier, Jules en dankie vir die happy hour bier of twee :thumbup: .

I must say that the MAC valve looks like a great bit of kit and works beautifully. Now Jules is ready for 3 Provinces.

Mooiskoot Jules, Gerrit

By the way Jules, I have made many okes green by showing them that my car is in 2wd before tackling a serious cross-axle, and then just idling through where their Landys (and some others) just can't make it through because they lack a difflock.

On some Toyota bakkies, you actually have to be in low range to be able to activate the diff lock.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Hallo Frans

Ek het myne vir Gerrit gegee, die goed lyk nie of mens dit kan oopmaak sonder om oop te breek nie ( geseelde eenheid ), Gerrit hou dit as n backup indien een van sy solenoid oppak.
