Re: Navara difflock

Possibly centre diff lock. Does it have a 4WD Auto mode? This applies a percentage of drive to the front via a viscous style coupling in transfer case when it requires I believe. Centre diff lock locks this up for "true" 4WD

^^^ What he said. I wouldn't recommend modifying 15A plug to fit a 10A one. It's not only the earth pin that's different, the phase and neutral contacts are heavier on 15A sockets as well.

Re: Clints Cruiser Project

edit...Fortunately the studs are the same size as Toyota ones that are a coarser thread so I decided to replace all the studs with those. This also means that they now match the back & all the wheel nuts are now the same. Nice to know, wish I knew earlier, then I would have put Nissan studs in ...

Re: 80 series recovery hook mounting.

depends on how you look at it Big, if you got to a trip and the person doing the checking of hook bolts couldn't identify what they were, ie: 3 dash bolts then no, as there are no numbers to identify its grade and as a general rule a 3 dash bolt is only a medium tensile material so again, not reall...
