  1. Was wondering if anyone can help in contacting Jez, I've sent him a few emails about some parts I need for my Volvo portal axles but no reply. I've bought some CW&P for the portals from him before and contacting him was easy. Anybody know if he has a new/different email? Thanks Nick
  2. Fantastic work, your son is a luck boy.  Don't forget to make a small puddle of oil to go underneath it (in the interests of authenticity of course)



  3. The adaptor is 160mm face to face so with ML box total is 700mm. I havn't got the shaft yet as I've asked them increase the diameter of the shaft and respline my input gear from the 10 spline LR to a larger diameter greater spline count that they do for the tremec manual box. The Volvo 6X6 will be about 3 ton in weight with camper box on the back so I wanted a beefy shaft for the 606 torque, this could be overkill but I wanted the drive-train as reliable as possible. Will post some pics when I get the shaft
  4. Yes like all good women - not cheap!! Best to give Rakeway a call re price because that is the first one he made so price could change and being from Aust I did not pay VAT Nick
  5. Happy to start one but it will be a while as still collecting the bits. There are two of us here in Melbourne doing the same conversion cheers Nick
  6. Nice build!! Here is the Rakeway adaptor I'm using to mate a Merc 606 + ML722.6 box to an LT230. Its going into a Volvo C304 6X6 Cheers Nick
  7. G'Day from Australia HoSS how is progress on the Volvo coming? Be great to get an update when you have time Nick
  8. Looks great HoSS, want to make me one too? Did you buy that DIN shaft from SPHP in Italy? I'm finding it really hard to get an answer out of them about buying a shaft to make my adaptor between the MB auto and the Volvo TC Cheers Nick
  9. HoSS is it possible to modify the side of the engine compartment to give you a little more space for the PS pump without encroaching into the footwell too much? I know the MB engine mounts are quite flexi so a bit more space may be available that way rather than lowering the motor again.
  10. Congratulations HoSS!! Did you end up raising the motor to get more sump/axle clearance or is that a job for later? And yes please post a video of its first burnout
  11. Thanks again for keeping the updates coming Hoss. I would also like some info on the Arduino boards Nick
  12. Looks great Hoss, just need to find spot for the GPS navigation screen
