  • The oil circulation system relies on a small amount of pressure to ensure that oil flows through the system. Probably by the time the oil alarm function comes on, you would be close to, but not damaging the bearings etc. I think there is probably little...

  • If the engine is shaking and stalling, you probably have a large air leak - a vacuum hose either left off by accident, or fallen off in service. either way, the air/fuel mixture will be too lean and the oxygen sensor will probably be trying madly to...

    DibbyDIbbyDj: Thanks for this post on brake bleeding. I have never heard of this method, and as I am about to do both our cars, I will certainly give it a try. Obviously the rubber diaphragm in the master cylinder has to be removed so that the fluid...

  • It is probably a good idea to use a fuel additive which prevents fungus buildup in the tank. It will prevent the fungus from forming and if you already have it on the filter, it will probably help to dissolve the fungus, thereby eliminating the need...

    I was taught to use 50% of tensile strength for shear conditions. The fun starts when you have shear and tension applied to the bolt. In my case, when the Commodore hit the towbar, it bent the cross tube which I had fitted (50 x 50 x 8 mm wall thickness)...

  • "With less fuel in the tank, fuel is more likely to drain back if there is a slight air leak somewhere."
    Fuel can only leak back into the tank if you have an air leak. The in-tank filter can still be partially blocked and this increases...

  • "So the question remains when the rattling of metal parts starts in 2H and gets louder why it dissapears when I put it into 4h immediately."

    As said above, 4H is the default. The noise coming when you try 2WD is the dog clutch...

    One of my main concerns with the towbar the dealer supplied (the cheaper version) was not the rating (I didn't even know what the rating was), but rather the leverage applied by the towball on the rear cross tube of the chassis member. I made up my own...

  • If the length of the hose has any significant effect, you have a lot of blowby leaking past the rings and you have much more expensive troubles ahead of you. I agree with Kingbrown - the actual location of the catch can should not affect its performance....

    Spongy brake pedal is caused by air om the system. You need to bleed the system. How long since you replaced the brake fluid? Brake fluid is hydroscopic - ie it absorbs water. This drastically lowers the boiling point of the fluid. It also causes corrosion...

  • It sounds very much like a blocked in-tank filter. As the engine cranks, the fuel pump tries to pull fuel from the tank, and if the in-tank filter is blocked or partially so, there is increased losses and thins means that the pressure at the main fuel...

  • With my old NL, I found that if I turned off the ignition (ie the engine stopped) and the car was still moving, there would be horrible grinding/crunching noises emitted from under the front of the car. This was the car going from 2WD to 4WD because...

    replied to NL rear tow point
    The towbars described above are totally different to each other. When I bought my NL I asked for a towbar, and the one they supplied bolted to the 4 bolts in the centre of the rear cross member of the chassis. This was the cheap version of the tpwbar...

  • There are 2 possibilities here -
    1 you could have an air leak in the fuel hose to the fuel filter.
    2 You may have a blocked filter in the fuel tank.

    I think that No 2 is the most likely cause (and also the hardest to get...

  • 4Lhc - the 'c' means centre diff lock. Whenever this ie engaged, ideally you should be stopped or travelling slowly. When you try to disengage the centre diff lock, it will hang up until the rotational speeds of the front and rear wheels are identical,...

  • That sure looks like a crack to me. If it was a wax mark from the pads, the line would be straight, but looking at the line it is not straight. Get it sorted ASAP, because the crack can continue running into the middle of the disc. The disc surface already...

  • A stunning trip. Well done. I would never be brave enough to try what you have achieved. I bet there are many more flashes which will come to you in coming years about this trip. Again, well done.

  • I don't know the details for the conversion you propose. but I suspect that you would need to change the gearbox as well. I suggest that you contact Mal at Mitsfix in Melbourne. He has plenty of Magna motors and would be able to advise you on what you...

    However, having to drive like that back home (not more than 2KM) on asphalt road, with turns, I did stop a couple more time...
