Re: anyone been up mount greenland lately

Went up 3 weeks ago. It's in the best condition I've seen it for years right now. The miners have graded the track to just past the grey bog which is probably halfway up. All the difficult stuff at the start is gone and barely reconisable now. However it's still a good drive and worth a visit. The ...

Re: Manualizing a Pajero auto

If your a mud hunter a manual is no more help to you and they have a clutch release bearing to fail when it's full if shit that the auto doesn't.
Given the auto is the same trans as in the prado/surf/Cherokee/Lexus you should be able to find info on how to manualise it somewhere.

Re: Farm land usage for 4wd events

Hi Pete, I asked that exact question of my worksafe inspector when we had an organised visit. My question was, can I still get some friends around and set up a track in a paddock for a time trial and not be held liable. The answer was yes providing it was not a workplace at the time. I can move my s...

Re: '94 SR5 Ln106 Build

I sorted my LN106 cold start issues with a new earth at the battery, all seemed right but one day I got even more sick of it not starting when cold so started to replace everything. New battery terminal sorted it.

I did before we bought our new vehicle, then I thought it's essentially an 80 series with no turbo and a weaker gearbox so would need money spent on it to be suitable for me so ditched the idea. Look good in gxl spec too.

My Hilux has an epic amount of play in the steering and it is mostly coming from the link arm. As I am using it I have not pulled it apart but what do i need to fix it? It looks like there is a part pressed into the pitman arm - that piece is moving in the arm. Do i need a new pitman to get the ball...

I was going to do extra cab and had the c pillars lines up but then I took the easy option as the roof at the c pillar was narrower than the b and was going to be more work so I just cut straight down the window line on the swb cab.
