Re: Pajero 2007 3 door 3.0 litre petrol auto - timing belt

90000 is a major service with all the oils but I think $2100 is still a complete rip!! I’ll have a look in my service book today and see when the belt is recommended from factory.

Re: Off road trailer build with patrol wheels...stub axles??

What size tyres on the patrol? If they are 33’s then the trailer will be huge. I built a camper and was going to run 33’s in it to save carrying a spare but it was just going to be to high to be sensible to get in and out of and still tow nice. So I stuck some 225/75/16 off a Hilux on it, I think th...

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.

I can move my s...

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.
