Keep using a banjo filter, they are there for a reason.
A good diesel pump workshop should have them in stock.

Safari GQ broken PTO drum

Guess it had to happen one day...took a fair few years though. I can get an oem drum to replace it but I may as well look at getting an extended larger drum made for it. Would appreciate knowing what others have done including preventative measures to stop the wire going over the side of the drum AG...

Now that's another thing to look at. Alloy flywheel what'd it set you back? Have had billet 3.8 ones made at about $550. Not sure I'd want to carve the meat out of a standard one but could be worth looking at. Sorry slidenyo...only just noticed this. Wasn't cheap, $1000 Aussie dollars but machined ...

Yep, we had to use that method when we couldn't pull out formwork pegs recently....used the work van to pull them out which did work!

Re: Help with PTO winch service

Is this on a Safari pto?. I stripped mine a few years ago, hub came off ok but took time to separate the drum from the shaft. Cleaned & reassembled it with white lithium grease on the shaft.....to this day it still freespools perfectly.

Re: Angrier td42t build

There's a lot of instances of crank failure now in Aust, all determined to be harmonic issues when you've got big power. But some of the failures they have had have occurred during normal driving. Billet cranks seem to be the go but not cheap. I've just put a new clutch in so I changed the flywheel ...

Y61 calipers won't bolt to a Y60 diff, bolt spacings are different. TB42E twin pot calipers will fit and work extremely well, I had them on mine.....like hens teeth to find though!.
