Re: SJ 413 new wheels

Depends on your rim width and tyre combo what offset suits. Is the truck on the road? need to keep the tyres in the guards?
From memory, the 15x8 -19 stuck the tyre just too far out the guard for a wof. Would suit the samurai I expect.

Re: SJ 413 new wheels

Yeah more room than I needed. Too much offset and larger tyres will hit the firewall even with 31's. 31's will sap more power than you expect too

Re: (Slow) '87 SJ413 Build

Samurai has wider diffs and springs mounted slightly outboard of the 413 and hand brake on the diff not on the drive shaft. Diff ratios like you have already stated. They might use the same front brake lines as I have had to extend samurai ones where 413's I didn't. Recently I have noticed early gea...

Re: SJ 413 new wheels

I ran cj jeep rims on mine for a bit. 15x8 though so a bit wide.
Do be careful as rims with the correct offset for a samurai can scrub the springs like you are worried about because the 413 diff is slightly narrower. You can set up steering limit bolts to fix it but you increase your turning radius.

Re: jimny power steer into sj413

I think the later model samurai shafts were collapsible where the 413 ones I have seen were just solid. I remember reading a build thread on modding a Samurai shaft a little allowing it to collapse down enough to fit then just being left as is. I have always ended up cutting and welding the 413 shaf...

Re: (Slow) '87 SJ413 Build

I've only changed rears when changed axles. Otherwise normally fine. Only do it if they are obviously worn would be my call. With the fronts I'd just be adjusting the wheel bearings. Only done full rekits a couple times due to wiper seal failure/swivel scoring and kingpin bearing failure.

Be good to know as all my spares have shot teeth.
Also out of interest, why not just swap an entire spare flywheel onto it?

Re: WANTED: SJ413 or G13 flywheel

I'm sure someone will have a second hand f/wheel but if needed I think the ring gear is replaceable. Heat it up to pop it off and heat a new one and drop it on. These guys might have em, no idea on what it costs but be interesting to hear how installing one goes. http://www.ringgear.co.nz/Our_Produc...

Be overkill if the batteries are right near the starter. I'd run 50mm to the winch though. Scale everything up as you move the batteries further from the motor.

Those hubs seem to last. Just removing them can be a pain in the ass if they have those weird long tapered head screws. Unsure if theres a way to prevent them seizing but have had a couple hubs real hard to remove.

I imagine if those rails were fitted as an update to an older design they may help extend the lifespan of the motor. It looks like they might reduce cross block torque and cracking over time.

Mine just needed a bit of hammering on the inside to clear the rear bearing cap. Need to mod the pick up also. Quite a bit less oil capacity in the 1300 sump though so I'm modding mine to allow more volume.
