    Husky winch question

    Dear All I have set my eyes on a winch, after lots of opinions i have settled down that a husky will fit my needs. Now, are there other versions besides the red ones EW8? was there ever a silver grey special edition one made? How does it differ from the normal ones? or was it just a paint job? Grem
  4. Rob, just sent you a PM in regards the shafts, as i need a pair! G

    Post-1980 Series rear axle

    Mine too, 110 front hubs + discs on a series Salisbury. G
  6. Good job, but i would try to clock that x brake to a better position, it looks very vulnerable down there! G
  7. Hmm mine too, clears just fine although i found out that the 110 tunnel needed trimming to fit between the bulk head and seatbox. Pic g

    Any good guides for 200Tdi conversions?

    Ok here is mine Its a def 200, tdi 200 rad moved into the rad panel, td5 intercooler, battery went in the rear tub, but mine is a 109. Glow system hooked up and functional. Aircleaner is a 200 can but intake is out trough the bonnet up to the snorkle. I wanted to keep the inset front so lots of head scratching went into it, also have a 4 bolt PS system hidden under the intercooler and behind the front panel. Pics

    Hitachi RR compressor, any good??

    Update The mysterious can with the blue and white wire is a solenoid, what it does id still a mystery! Pics of the modified mount and air intake cans Fitted under seat, right next to the battery, its a tight squeeze but it fit. Next is some paint to the braket and install in the seat box, i still need to work on the air tank and its mount, that will be another post. G

    Leaf springs

    Yes dangerous, as when they break they go flying............................. Funnily enough the sledge hammer method used to hold up the arch better than the press or jack. G

    Leaf springs

    No Need to heat to re arch, we used to do them cold here, the primitive way with a big ass sledge hammer and piece H beam. We were young and foolish as it was dangerous, and used to spend a day with ears ringing....................... I always did mine at home in a simple jig with a bottle jack. If you have press its even better. G

    Fitting poly-bushes

    I have been running polys for many many years in leafs. I always use what's at hand in the garage regarding grease, if they come with out any. Never disintegrated or melted or broke down due to wrong lube. Never had an issue, and fitting them is a doodle, unlike the originals which took a whole day just to do a front set! (besides the blasphemy to get them out) basically i can replace a front set in an hour now!! without grief. I use a lot of copper grease on the bolts to avoid the inner sleeve seizing to the bolt (still happens some times) Been trough many types and makes, blue, orange (one piece) black and now on yellow ones (2 piece) Quality will vary (mainly BP stuff) but since they are cheap and easy to change i just fit what on the local lr shops shelve. The only place where is still use the original metalastic is at the front chassis. G

    Hitachi RR compressor, any good??

    Hi Ed, Thanks, i noticed it had another 2 wires going to the motor, so those are the motor temp, good. I am still trying to find out the top can sensor (white and blue wires) but i guess i will set it up and test what it does via multimeter. As to the temp sensors i was hoping they are an on/off type, that way i can cut the feed to the relay if it overheats. I will post up when i delve deeper on what everything does! Right now i am looking at the air tank, i have ditched the alum scuba tank (heavy), for a steel 6kg 350bar fire extinguisher, but i have to re-weld a bung on for the drain. I tried to avoid this by mounting the tank vertical, opening down, but due to space it just cannot be done it will have to be mounted horizontal. G
