Re: Safari GVM

Where did you obtain the NZTA rating from? There should not be a difference between NZTA and Carjam as they both come from the same register. I use both carjam and the motorvehicle register (landata) on nearly a daily basis, the information has never differed. NZTA does have the authority to change ...

Re: Safari GVM

Just been on the phone with a Nissan guy (who was talking to a guy in Aussie) and, for my model, the kerb weight is 2160, GVM is 2800. And GCM is 5300. The GCM in this case is a combination of GVM and GTM. They've said increasing GVM will, in this case, increase GCM as well. Does towball downforce ...

Re: Checkerheads new project.

Regarding the welding electrode strength look for in in the Specification / Classification of the wire.

e.g. AS/NZS 14341 B-G49, the 49 x10 = the tensile strength in MPA so 490 MPA
If its American it will be something like ER70-6 the 70 means 70,000 PSI Tensile strength

What is the max stress reached for that loading scenario? its a little hard to read. The way in which you have fixed your link arm is not that realistic, if you consider a simple beam with both ends fixed (which is similar to how you have fixed it) the beams bending moment is half that of if it was ...

Wanted - Landcruiser lower tailgate and driver seat

Wanted 80 series cruiser lower tailgate, prefer the maroon colour without the rear wheel mount but will take anything in good condition.

Also after a drivers seat, not too fussed what model it is from.
