    It's a pity because those sorts of revs are ideal.
    Need someone to make a 2 speed diff for when we're towing.

    Stopping the TC from locking like you are should make it run hotter and may burn the ATF.

    Nice. We had to get an auto for my wife. Would've loved a TD but all the ones I could find were way too expensive.

    I've thought about converting ours but I've got too many projects already.

    Thanks Chubba and you're welcome. Others here have helped me heaps, so this is just passing it on.
    Sorry I missed your reply here way back when you posted it.

    That sounds like a mistake. You don't want to feed power into both of those wires, just the one that goes to the transmission, not to the tcu one.

    That's a nice area you live in GQtdauto.
    Is your GQ a factory auto and an official import, or a grey import? There aren't many TD autos around.

    No worries GQtdauto, I just know how expensive these autos can get if things go wrong with them.

    Thinking more, this will do what you want BUT, you run the risk of cooking the auto if you use it too much, and you shouldn't tow your camper trailer in OD.

    It's normal for it to take a while to warm up enough for it to lock up in 4th.

    If I'm understanding your question right, yes, that would be easy. If your trans computer is the same as ours, you'd cut the wire from pin 22 and put your switch in there to feed 12 volts to the...

    I wouldn't use a single relay system like the one in the picture above. If you accidentally turned it on while in park or neutral, you may fry your auto.

    Ours is a daily. Only use the manual lockup when towing. Other times you'd never know it was there.

    If they're like mine adjusting them probably wont be enough. I thought they were fine until I compared them with a freshly ground one. They have a fairly definite point (like a cam) where they push...

    I've never heard of a manual lockup that cuts out when you accelerate hard FNQGU. Is yours a known brand, or custom built?

    Our tanks are the same as lhurley's. Most I've put in is 108L of LPG and 72L of petrol.

    I'd say do your sums carefully before paying to convert, ours was dual fuel when we bought it. I don't have...

    Thanks Parksy, ours intermittently has a noise that sounds like the same thing as yours. I'll have to look there next time it does it.

    I suspect your speedo will be more accurate if you put 32 inch tyres on. Ours was fast by more than 10% with 31 inch tyres, now with 32's it's back to about 5% faster than reality.
