  1. I fitted slightly bigger rubber tread ones to my Clarke folding 1T when the originals fell apart. They were rated 500kg each and as most weight is on the front ones under load seems fine to me. Only downside was that the rear was higher and when folded the crane tended to tip forward, so i fitted a longer support foot to the base.
  2. I'll be interested how you get on. I've been looking at this kit and thinking of adapting for dual front calipers. (The Tiger exped kit is just too expensive) Why the wheel choice? what wheels, tyres and offset do you think your wlll use?
  3. theres already a very long thread on this, somewhere down in the noise
  4. For anyone thats interested (nothing to do with me) http://custom4x4parts.com/product/tornado-portal-kit-land-rover/ (not cheap)
  5. Its not clear who said they wanted my EGT gauge, but to be correct i've put an ad up in the for sale section
  6. You dont need to buy their sensors, the inputs are configurable for standard sensors.
  7. I haven't seen anything better. I have run 2 EMS's for many years and cant fault them. In terms of how much they can do, their configurability and that they are well made (not some dodgy chinese firmware) they are unmatched. If you need an EGT version i have an unused one for sale.
  8. Drain and refill, or use a SG meter
  9. 99% of antifreeze for sale now is pre-diluted (at least from garages and supermarkets, professional may be still concentrate) - easier to use for stupid people, but we are buying water at some inflated rate.
  10. https://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/how-to/a91/1272436/ Basically ignore the colour, read the container. Older cars IAT, newer OAT or HOAT And dont mix IAT with OAT
  11. Sadly i dont have much more on position than already posted here. I did have to move the engine up by about 50mm as i discovered the diff was too close to the sump front/alternator on articulation. Watch out for that. And i had to change the oil pump / sump to the rear sump type to clear.
  12. All i had to do was cut a half section out of the round crossmember for the parking brake, and that was only to do a shoe change. But i'm using Volvo t-case. I'll have a look for pictures for engine position.
  13. FWIW i bought a new MM 1T crane some years ago and it never stayed up, contacted them and they asked me to bring it bacj, but at that point i'd taken it abroad. Tried bleeding it multiple times, still no good. I'd be interested if you do take it apart, i may do so myself Where did you find the seal kit? is it on the website?
  14. Thats what i said AGM are more tolerant of being held flat for a while, try recovering with a c-tek or similar, may be ok
