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: 15" or 16"

16 inch tyres tend to be offered in narrower sizing than the 15 inch tyres, e.g. 33/12.5 Vs. 33/10.5

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: Vitara 1.6 engine Vs 2L engine

Hard to gauge a bargain vehicle only based on price and km. Does it run well, good acceleration and decent power for you for hills? Does it drive nicely and do you find it comfortable? Is it in good physical condition, dents rust scratches or is it too rough for your liking? An auto is great off roa...

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

Re: GQ Y60 TD42 Problem 1: Warm Air in Rear, Lukewarm in front

Yep, disconnect both the hoses going to/from the heater core and flush in both directions with the garden hose.
If the pipes from the engine to the heater core are blocked you may well want to flush them out as well if you can otherwise you aren't gaining a lot.

Re: GQ Y60 TD42 Problem 1: Warm Air in Rear, Lukewarm in front

I would guess that your heater core and possibly the pipes to it are blocked, or the heater tap is stuck shut? Sounds like you have a second heater core in your centre console that heats the back, it will likely be partially blocked too

Track is still open, You need a key from the NCC, $50 deposit on the key from memory. Unsure who you talk to at the Council but the reception staff should put you onto the right person, or email them to ask.
