    This Legend of a bloke kindly opened his shop up in Dandenong for an hour today to adjust our diffs backlash and pre-load.

    He’s also much better than my efforts linished the journal butchering done and final pressure tested up nicely!
    He only just managed to 90 degree bend the internal copper air locker line into the hole we’d tapped from ARB instructional picture interpretation.

    Be careful here folks as the picture is deceiving I believe!

    Really should be on a straight line down the inside of the diff housing unlike whats done is done now.

    Removed bulbar to straighten the passengers side wing after I managed to bend it getting out of a bog hole nearly two years ago. Has been rubbing on the grill piece ever since.
    Having a fork to support it is very handy

    The pieces on the floor

    looks a little naked....
    And yes I have blasted out all the dried mud.

    When straight again, going to add some extra bracing in the wings.

    While its off, removing the intercooler and radiator for cleaning and maybe replacing water pump. Have a weeping gasket just below the thermostat housing, and last time I had belt off the water pump, it had a bit of movement on the shaft. Should be much easier to do...……

    Does anyone know where you can get those little black plastics clips that hold the grill on, or a suitable replacement

    Cheers Trevor

    Try these, all metal and work a treat, better than the plastic

    Is it an optical illusion or is your drivers side headlight on the piss?

    Thanks for the suggestion. Captive nuts and bolts, use them when installing small data cabinets (my son is a sparky) should have some somewhere.

    Funny how some people can see things in pictures and others can’t

    Cheers Trevor

    I had another look last night at the front shot and almost looks like a bit of 'fish eye' distortion, obviously not.

    Update
    Removed the intercooler and the radiator has some dried out mud on it...……...
    muddy radiator.JPG
    Removed the radiator and washed out the mud. Reckon about a quarter of the radiator was useless.

    Nissan Patrol GQ TD42 2 Wire Tacho Sensor can be seen to the right of the water pump
    engine revolution.JPG
    It appears the sealant or whatever it is, where the 2 wires go into to the housing, is breaking down so not sure if I should replace it while access is easy.

    "According to Patrolapart
    Genuine Nissan Patrol GQ TD42 2 Wire Tacho Sensor
    Suit GQ Patrol with a TD42 engine.
    This sensor is located on the timing cover. This is a 2 wire sensor.
    This tacho sensor is held in by one bolt.
    The two bolt tacho sensors are no longer in production and this is the substituted item for this"

    Any comments on replacing the sensor?

    Cheers Trevor

    Swapped out what was a very expensive JVC sound system today, finally carked it, so down to Autobarn and a Kenwood unit that plays cd's and all the other telepathic intergalactic methods of music storage, for $169. Took the best part of the day to install mainly due to - yep, wiring - having to hack into the original loom that had been hacked about when the JVC was put in - no I didn't do that install. Running thru 50w speakers and a high quality antenna - sound absolutely crystal clear and a step up from the JVC.This model is the KDC-BT630U, does not have DAT. Unfortunately the centre console in the dash had to come out due to the old world 1997 mounting system, but pretty straight forward.

    Removed the alternator and added the Quicktifier Rectifier package to ensure the unit load is lower across the factory fitted rectifiers. have to mount the unit tomorrow - simply baking this afternoon in the garage. Took it out for a spin in the suburban heat and it never got over 90degC on oil or water, so fingers crossed the big aluminium radiator is going to deliver. Wasn't under any real load though, just stop start but enough indication. yet to hook up the big elec fans - its on the list.

    Pulled out the radiator and gave it a good wash and the a/C condenser. New coolant and topped up with Demineralised water.
