  1. Should it be connected? Never known a speedo signal is needed on the 14CUX? 🤔
  2. Looks like a mix between a MB and a M38A1... Kinda CJ2 from the fifties. I saw a lot of the original ones last week in Normandy: Willys MA & MB, Ford GPW and GPA (amfibious), and quite some pre production variants (slat grill etc.)..
  3. Also Eberspächer Hydronic does the job: with build in coolantpump. When a certain coolant temperature is reached it starts the ventilator of the interior heather to warm the cabin. My father has one. He can start it by calling his car with his mobile to start the heater. In the car is an old cell phone (moded by my dad) which switches the pre heather. Of course there are also original Eberspächer devices like clocks and remote controls to start the heather.
  4. What is "enhanced" about it? Is it with rollerbearings? That would make clear why they spool up quicker...
  5. The Lexus engine comes with the autobox? Easiest installation is when you can drive the LT230 divorced with an short drive shaft. But.. maybe the LT230 has to move a bit backwards So only suitable for 100" or 110" wheelbase I guess..
  6. I guess you mean the 14CUX ecu? I don't think it can drive an PWM valve. Stepper control is completely different electronic idle control. PWM (2wire) needs as a rule of thumb an higher current than steppermotor (4wire). Best is to use a steppermotor on the THOR manifold or change the whole manifold. Also no nock sensor inputs available.
  7. Maybe a VM Diesel one: it is the same as a V8. Only other bellhousing. 200/300Tdi ones are different. On my VM RRC I just had to change the bell housing to put a RV8 instead.
  8. Why not turn the weld down to make a smooth finish on a lathe and paint it to make it show OEM? If it is welded right it will not be an issue regarding strength. And for sure there are many steering shafts which are OEM welded together.
  9. Looks like the car is going to be just a part that keeps the axles together.... 😂😂
  10. Left hand drive Land Rovers has no lengths of steel pipes at all because all components are situated on the left side. Just rubber hoses, so practicaly no additional cooling.. The older LR's (seventies/first half eighties) had a quite big metal oil tank with a filter element which doubles somewhat as a cooler. The later ones have just a small plastic ZF tank also used in normal passenger cars. In those passenger cars they use practically all a length of pipe for cooling, mostly in front of the radiator.
  11. Tandem axles with even load distribution makes the impact of bumps half as hard on the trailer. So that is a good thing. I experienced that clearly while driving my Dodge WC62 (WW2 6x6 1,5ton truck): the rear is so much smoother than the front.. :-)
  12. I would consider a wide track sankey trailer as a basis and lengthen it a bit. Probably just shifting the axle backwards and lengthen the frame backwards as needed. And keeping the weight low is the key..
  13. If you want to turn that fast it is possible that the steering pump flow capacity is not enough. Especially @ low engine revs.. If you go to fast the pressure drops and power is lost.. so you need more effort to steer. If you are fast enough the powersteering is going to act in the opposite way: it even slows down steering.
