    Leaf Springs & winches

    Yes trying to keep it the same height, that why i will probably reset the camber. I did them in the past myself, but its a lot of work. This time i have a spare set of leaves which i will reset after i install the winch and see where it sits, and how it rides. Cause if it hits the bumps all the time it might be too soft and i will than probably add a leaf. No paras for me in front, i had them, broke them, and hated them, so its standard springs up front.

    Further to my question, how does everyone measure the free camber on the springs? Across the Middle of the spring eye bushes to the spring arch (center bolt)? Grem

    Stage one V8 front half shafts

    No, off the shelve items i was told, they were as old stock. Grem

    Leaf Springs & winches

    Understood, will reset my spare set of springs anyway to +1" as i have longer shocks in front. They will then settle down to original height with the weight. Grem

    Stage one V8 front half shafts

    It should work. Well i went the other way and uprated my Stage 1 axle to 24 spline, via maxidrive shafts, plus a 4 pin macnamara center. Grem

    Leaf Springs & winches

    Dear All I am soon to fit a winch on the front of my Series 3, its going to be a husky with a synth rope. I run a tdi200 just to get an idea. What have you all done to the springs? uprated? or reset? added a leaf maybe? I have a set which i might get reset with some more free camber than specified in the green bible. Let me know Grem

    Manual Diff Lock Install

    Well you could come up with something, but that will add complexity. This is nice and simple.

    Manual Diff Lock Install

    Hi All Been a long time since i posted anything useful here. So after many many years of searching high and low i have finally managed to lay my hands on a used specimen of Mr Macnamara's manual difflock. The item in question is as seen in this leaflet of many years ago. The axle it sat in was a mess to be honest, so i stripped it down and started to seek replacement bearings and seals. It also emerged that my locking shaft was junk. So after some emails to Mr Macnamara i managed to source a new shaft, plus other bits and bobs to start my install. I also had to modify a coiler hub since i have a disc brake conversion at the rear. Thats it for now, next pics will be of the install i hope. Gremlin

    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
  15. Rob, just sent you a PM in regards the shafts, as i need a pair! G
