    I had a chance to upgrade with very little outlay and I sat on it for too long and just missed out. Ah well, it was to never be I suppose.

    I stand by my earlier opinion on the aftermarket extended performance TB42S dizzy rotors that do cartwheel/destroy above.
    Have definitely changed my mind on the longevity potential of the Petronix upgraded ignitor from previous owners install.



    Arrived at final work destination last night and fulfilled a decent days work start today finally. Was greeted by @AB’s overnight Pak&Send thankful parcel of a replacement Petronix from Patrolapart down in Mexico-Lilydale
    Not a minute too late, we crossed some of the steepest parts of the East Coasts GDR at times down to 1st gear low range with hazard lights to reach each roller coaster peak for another downhill 1/2/3/4/5th gear 1,000rpm windup again for the next
    Petronix has held on for seriously 1,000km of hell but didn’t stop completely, FULL RESPECT Mr P Thankyou

    An honest word of warning too for anybody out there Caravan trekking Oz at the moment, please do keep off Armidale Road down to Grafton ways. Possibly the worst/dangerous ongoing bitumen potholes I’ve experienced after the rains these poor buggers have had up here. We’ve broken a spring on the little machine trailer at very low speeds coming down, there’s also a week long I believe cycling event underway, head north or south, avoid at all costly coast drop downs

    Cycling event. The easiest way possible to disrupt the most people possible for the benefit of the least people possible to attract nobody to the local ratepaying businesses you've just closed off the local roads to. Get a grip.

    Gave the Old Trol a 4" lift with blocks of wood. Gotta get a hoist instead of stuffing around, just to do the Gearbox and diff oil. And yes, that is a ghost standing behind the spare on the trailer.

    Best advice given to me was to crack the top plugs first. It took using a breaker bar with a piece of pipe and a bottle jack to get the gearbox and diff top plugs to move. It was touch and go as to whether I needed to weld a socket onto them.

    To get the bottom plug out, I used a bottle jack to hold the breaker bar in the plug.

    I am thinking of designing a tool that sits securely on a jack, but lets the breaker bar turn.

    330000 km service done! What a prick, the front uni joints are to grease. I found it easier to drop the TF case one to get at the grease nipples.

    Not today, a few days ago. Drove through two rivers (actually more than 70 crossings in the 190kms we travelled, but most were fairly shallow) both had water the same height & both fairly wide. The Wenlock & Pascoe Rivers on the way to Lockhart River. Deepest water we've crossed in the car. 800mm. Both over concrete causeways , but one had a lot of deep sand on it from when the level had been up to 14 metres recently. Wasn't fun for the short time when all four wheels were spinning & I wasn't making progress. Thought we had got through ok, but yesterday noticed the car was a bit on the nose. Water got in somewhere, just not sure where. All the sound proofing felt underneath the vinyl floorcovering is wet, but thankfully only in the driver side footwell. Today seat is out, various pieces of trim removed & the floor covering lifted with an electric fan drying things out. Might take a while if the 100% humidity keeps up.

    2006 4.2TDi ex-Telstra Remote area Camper. 425w roof mounted solar, 360Ah Aux batts, BCDC1240, Onboard hot & cold pressurised & filtered water, (25 litre hot water calorifier), ARB fridge, ARB freezer, Built in kitchen, heaps of easy access storage, 240v, 3” Genie exhaust + dynotune, 2” lift, 3900kg GVM upgrade, second glovebox, ROH Blaktrak steel wheels, Bridgestone D697's (now Toyo RT's), Redarc gauges/pillarpod, Hema HX-1, Icom 450 CB, dual rear view cameras, Onboard 30amp Victron mains charger, second glovebox, dual seat conversion, Tyredog TPMS, Boss PX7 onboard air with 9 litre tank, 350w inverter, Steel bullbar, Harrop Eaton diff lock (front), Warn winch, Snorkel, Dual spares , 160 litre water tank, 180 litre fuel in two tanks (approx 1200km range) 2010 Tvan Tanami.
