  1. https://www.ashcroft-transmissions.co.uk/calc/ratio_calc.html This will answer all your questions!
  2. The Jeep Gladiator, by contrast,is quite subtle: Appreciate it isn't in the same class as the near-big-rigs above, but still, it *can* be done.
  3. Sorry Fridge, I suspect you would prefer that I didn't post any more like this then? .... and to finish with another 'meme', whatever they are:
  4. Doubtless they are a huge improvement over their predecessors, however:
  5. Yeehaw? But you know, they only sell by the millions and millions.
  6. Oh man, that *IS* nice... Love the ammo belt - I thought you'd finished it!
  7. Body is rather rough to be honest, with silver paint splashed over anything galved, Salisbury axle in the rear for some reason, lack of imagination when fitting the diesel heater. But yes, certainly not the sum cost of the new parts on it.
  8. Hello 9mpg! On a lighter note, someone please buy this before I do: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F254332026585 Alwyas had a 'thing' for those Russian bread vans that seem to do the impossible, this is about as close as I think you can get for very little money (so far). Fibreglass cab, 4wd with front and rear diff locks, independent suspension, 660kg and 600cc engine! And somehow a 500kg payload....
  9. .... Or a left field one, a Buick 215 pulley?
  10. Fair enough, I must have seen it elsewhere then! RRCs are different, less grooves, as they run ancillaries by (for example) a double pulley on the PAS pump, ith a belt off that to alternator. AC is on a separate belt off the water pump as well, I think. Perhaps an SD1, I guess some had AC?
  11. Agreed, I think it is a 101 24V FFR variant, though no practical use really to most people that have sensible brains - much simpler methods of doing things around.
  12. I think @neilc means the drag link rotates on the ball joints (at least that is what the pictures show), in which case, this is a good thing, it needs to be able to, or it will bind up.
  13. Personally, I think that hinge is quite likely to fold in half. I'd and get it shrunk, as above.
