Re: MADMAX - Our J20

I love the look of the old J20 and Cherokee, A J20 that has been rolling about between a few family mates is getting a new lease on life at the moment. Good to see yours is earning its keep.

Re: Nevis Vally to serpentine church

Just checked against a few tracks I know and yep Grade one is Nana spec, grade 5 Go with nana to tow her mobility scooter out spec. (Don't go alone)
That page was set up by a motorbike touring dude so grades may be more indicative for bikes tan 4wd, still relevant though.

Re: Volvo 4 - WR6944 x-Malaysian Police Riot Squad

Talk about a glutton for punishment. Is it cost effective/worthwhile getting them in this shape and restoring them?
Restoring one I get, but four?

Re: Safari steering wheel removal

undo the small screws from behind, the centre cover/horn should lift off allowing you to disconnect the horn wire. Then loosen the nut holding the steering wheel onto the steering shaft

Another one? It must be a sickness.
On the bright side you have a flock of them now so once they are all in the same place they should start breeding themselves and you won't need to buy any more.
Keep up the good work and look after yourself.

Re: damper vs a 'tether' on snatch straps

Snatch recoveries are usually done with pace and a bit of force. So if your snatch strap breaks, the recovery vehicle shoots forward under speed, your tether rope now goes tight and also snaps, You now have two ropes acting like projectiles and heading towards vehicles/people etc. with a shackle in ...

Re: So Stupid I bought Volvo 2

Jeepers, It sounds like you need as much work done on yourself as Volvo 2 does.
Hopefully the docs can sort you out quickly and let you get back to the important stuff. The cancer in that cab looks pretty bad, A new cab may be the way to go.

Re: LN167 Hilux Side Steps/Sliders

Unbolt the brake line mounts and use a longer bolt and a spacer to hold the pipes away from the chassis , if they bolt on where you want the bracket to go, then weld a nut to the bracket and refit the brake line mounts afterwards. Well that is how I did mine on my Prado
