WTB: Saf front

Y60. Based 40km North of Whangarei but will obviously pay shipping.

Grille and clips, L+R corner lights, LH quarter guard.

Any one with parts? or I'll just go trademe, or lube up and go see Dave :shock: :lol:

Re: loud crack from front hub area

Yup sounds like sticking hub. In the olden times you would have to reverse off them. 93 shouldn't be an issue though. Tearing them down isn't hard and if they haven't been done since 93, probably overdue.

Re: THUMP felt on acceleration

I know you discount backlash, but check it. Jack the back, 4th gear, have your apprentice turn it forward, then back. Look for slop in the uni's, loose hangers, if it's in diff then it'll have to be felt through the hub.

Re: running wires through firewall safari

The above is good advice, except they tend to rust on seams, not so easy to drill! There is a drain/bung/breather behind carpet on passenger side footwell (also exhaust manifold side) which you can poke wires through if you're precious about drilling.

Re: 2000+ 4wd ute options.

Y61 Safari. Job done. TB45/8 will be more comfy on road, TD42 for real work. I believe the 4.8 petrols aren't as well matched to the box, (haven't driven) (4spd vs 5) but 4spd auto's not too bad. If you don't need to pull big stuff the TD27 terrano's go good as well, but not sure about post-2000 mod...

Pin punch and hammer works for me. If I want to be precise with a torque wrench I'll weld a couple bits of rod to a socket.
I managed to track down a proper cup socket when I had the L200, can't recall what size it is.
Should be able to be ordered anywhere that stocks Powerbuilt or Teng

Re: Help with PTO winch service

I wouldn't try prying against an alloy hub unless I really really had to.
Heat it and hit it.
It's possible someone has siliconed both sides of the hub gasket too. Also check that it's disengaged, then rock the shaft back and forward to see it's not binding.

Re: Tire Pressures.....

A/Ts not so bad for wear, they'll have a pretty flexible carcass and firm tread. Higher pressures will just give you a slightly rougher ride, and put more (though negligible) wear through your shocks and suspension as the sidewalls do less work. When I'm on the road with M/Ts I usually run 40-45psi....
