Re: 15x10 Rims

Yep, Land Rover stud pattern, 15" diameter x 10" wide with 4" of backspacing.
They have some stupid wide bias ply tyres on them.

Pics were after a quick waterblast, totally usable. I might refurb them with sandblast/zinc if you aren't interested.

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 It looks like I will, no one has them or even 8" ones with the offset I want I have some 15x10 or 8, not sure, will check and pos...

You're right, though in this case it calmed the noise down a bit which was enough to narrow down the source of the noise.

Re: 93 Terrano TD27t noise (can't figure it out)

I know a TD27 guy who had similar symptoms and it ended up being that the turbo was kafuzzled. To isolate remove hose to engine intake, run engine and replicate conditions, see if the noise calms down.

Re: QD32 conversion

See Nissan's 'kaizen philosophy' - its the same gearbox rear case. If you really wanted to, you could take the rear case from a 300ZX, bolt on a TD27 bellhousing on one end and a Safari transfer case on the other, with a standard OEM adapter plate. The bitch of course is finding a TD27 bellhousing. ...

Cool Rover project mate, looks great. Love the Rostyles, a nice tip of the hat to the earlier coil sprung Rovers.

Yeah shame about the 2-door, a 2 door 200Tdi would be an awesome project to restore to factory condition, IMO.

What type of rear locker arrangement do you have?? Keep it up!

it will be bearing failure. while i would not recommend reusing a crush tube, tightening them up a tad is fine.

Re: Pinion play

Crush tube or bearings. Agree w/ Churchill, the Toyo diffs are very fussy and will blow up if even slightly out of spec.
NEVER EVER re-use/retighten a crush tube! They are designed for a single use.

Best and most widely accepted solution when rebuilding is to replace it with a solid spacer.

Re: FS: lower ball joints for kzn-185 surf or 90/95 series Prados

Anybody who has that travesty of an IFS system should buy these immediately and install them.

Toyo did a recall on this, they f***d up big time by putting the lower Bj in a constantly state of tension. It's literally trying to pull itself apart every time the suspension is working.
