Re: 15x10 Rims

If you're after Landrover stud pattern, you may need to get them custom made... I'd suggest a call to Warren at 4wdbits.co.nz or Rex at http://landroverspares.co.nz

Hi Biggles,
Maybe a top mount and bonnet scoop from a Pajero or Bighorn with fan assist for low speed stuff would be easier / cheaper?

Re: Broken Transfer Box on Mt Greenland

You could certainly make a start, but unlikely to get past the "Blue mudstone" section which is VERY slippery and quite rutted, so requires pretty good articulation and/or lockers and/or winch with good tyres. Also be careful of washouts on the sides of the track. I'd strongly suggest 2 tr...

Re: Broken Transfer Box on Mt Greenland

Blue mudstone section was driveable for some but most needed a winch or snatch. Bog was driveable if you got the line right. Even the rock step where the break happened was driveable but easier in a LWB. It was a pretty dry day

Clutch is a bleed line - I guess not really necessary but easier than bleeding from below. Vacuum tank is because the clutch also has vacuum boost like the brake. Is it really worth the effort of moving / removing everything? There's plenty of space, and "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" m...

Wheels further out one side than the other will be due to panhard rods with lifted springs - you need to get adjustable panhard rods. It's not a body mount problem

With no wof requirements, a good guard chop should let you run 33in tyres giving better diff clearance than a Safari or Cruiser on 35's. And the standard suspension is better then most for articulation. If you want to get serious with a budget rear locker then weld the spider gears on the rear diff ...

Re: New battery time?

There could also be another failed relay causing a constant drain. But your symptoms are consistent with a dying battery also. To be sure - I'd suggest disconnecting the battery for a day or 2, then see if it's still sluggish to start. If so - battery problem, if not then there is a drain somewhere....
