Re: sr20 surf buggy

F.core is good for structual but at 1.6mm just way to heavy for panel steel. Pick a small role of 0.6mm and wind it onto an old drum that fits your mig. You will also need mixed gas. I have heard of using straight argon but unsure of results. Others will hopefully chip in if im wrong. As you want to...

Re: Wtb bj74 speedo cable for a automatic

they would be the same as a manaul just a little bit longer at a guess, that said the 5 speed box is similar to a auto. the connection is in the tranfur box rear output housing and that can be rotated so if its a bit tight you may find moving by 60d might be all it needs

Re: Rear mount radiator

prob the best esp' now you are towing.

ran a good engine prop fan as well. leckys cant keep up with high hard usage.

in my 70 with v8 sbc the engine prop fan took 15d+ off the temps compared to twin 16" c.d. fans

Re: pto driven hydraulic winch

Yes my advice was that yes i could flow 80 tp 100ltrs at 700rpm i could not get enough pressure. As flow is drum rotation which is then directly linked to rope speed. Pressure is winch motor pulling power. More pressure equals more pull. Im flowing around 85 to 110ltrs/m and std winching sits around...

Re: pto driven hydraulic winch

Just thinkin....
If youve got the mid to late 80's l.c. auto theres a good chance of running a pto.

The l.c. auto has a small brake fitted into it to stop the trans from rotating whislt engageing gears whilst transfur box is disconnected. This unit would suit any pto set up.

Re: pto driven hydraulic winch

1st thing you need to confirm is if your auto can take a auto? If its running a early prado then possibly yes. If not then you will need to look at driving off the crank pully. Or doing serious mods to auto rear tail output shaft into transfur box. Off hand there is a set up where a 2nd transfur box...
