Pretty clever how he uses the compressor to pump the new oil into the diffs!

I use one of those Gardena 5L pumps that you use around the house to keep the pests at bay. I just took off the sprey thing in front and now use it to fill gearboxes and diffs......works very nice!

Reviving this thread!

I actually have spoken with Alex, who does the Backyard Mechanic videos, a few times, and he actually helped me start the Southern Africa 4x4 channel. I've always found it easier to watch a video while using a manual than relying on the manual alone.

Who is willing to photo/video some repairs and installations so that we can upload them for others? I am keen to start, although mine will be very basic stuff, but the more we have, the more we can help those in need (which include me :biggrin: )
The outdoors life for me, thanks.

Rhett, not a bad idea.

Pitty this was not mentioned 2 days ago because I am bust doing the swivel hub bearings on mine......
Its already stripped, so can only video the assembly part?

Shap! That sounds like a good start Michael. Thanks man. We can upload the vid's to the YouTube SA4x4 channel or we create a new channel for this thread. (ie Nissan Patrol SA channel)

I regret not filming the service and bearings I recently did, as it would have shown everyone what not to do... but the more we know, the more we benefit from. If anyone has more ideas, let me know.
The outdoors life for me, thanks.
