    Freewheel rear axle?

    Hi all, I have seen some 6x6 with freewheeling at the rear axle. Question is, can a front fw be bolted to the rear axle with nowhere to bolt the castellated nut in half shaft? Pic from youtube
  2. Nice to hear that. I will be hapier using Rover parts instead of yota ones! Also I think will be easier to obtain engineers report for making it road legal if parts from the "same" car make are used. Will check rover saloon disc size vs rr/disco ones.
  3. Nice to hear that he is still arround with his trialler. Did the trialler keep using its sliding frame one link?
  4. Hi all, Due to personal circumstances I'm not using this forum as frequently as I used to, but I'm still working on crazy vapour builds that I hope to build some day into my 88 (four years now with "baja temporal", Spain's equivalent to UK SORN). I may end, after an engine swap, with a gearbox and tbox combo with no transmisson handbrake. Has ever someone adapted some kind of axle handbrake to a disc brake LR rear axle? Maybe adapting some toyota cable operated calipers?
  5. More than five years after this excellent build...what can be said? Any problem/things to do different if done again? I think that a mix of this and Bill's Wildfing rear one link on leafs will give what I want for my 88.
  6. Ok, things go really slow. More than one year later and the garage build is not complete. My right hand needed surgery, and I have been disabled for that reason a pair of months. Now, in full working order, both wife and I have decided to say goodbye to our jobs and have started an artisian cheese business. I have decided to ditch the toylander style project for now. I think that I will use some 6" hoverboards for powering it, since they have motor, controller and battery in one single package. The price of this devices has lowered quite a lot in in last years. Meanwhile, my son is riding a Jeep with twin 12 volt motors. It has been a presen from his uncle...chief mechanic at local franchised Jeep dealer.

    Assault helmet

    Ebay offers plenty of cheap secondhand expolice body armor. I could take the chest part for the chest and the back part for the legs, from navel to knees. Optional armor plates can be added. I have also checked local regulations, and it's perfectly legal in Spain to own and wear this type of equipment.

    Assault helmet

    Yep, that is! Even balistic face shields are affordable and relatively easy to source in europe. This one is built in UK.

    Assault helmet

    How are those type of PPE called? Have found a real secondhand item in ebay, shipped from Khazakhstan. I could buy a complete landy for that money!

    Sometimes things go wrong. I want to be prepared just in case. A neighbour died when working with the high presure suspension of his citroen bx.

    Assault helmet

    Hi all, I have been thinking about sourcing an assault helmet for using when doing weird works in with a 30 ton press, but all I have found are replicas for airsoft/paintball wars. Any idea if this type of equippment can be legally bought and where? Thanks.
  13. Focusing on the garage/pit build, so no real work on the little landy. We have bought a 6 volt quad bike. I will salvage and overvolt a similar second unit for this project. Cheap and simpler than the bicycle hub motor idea.
