    Changed the oil even though it had done around 2000k since last service.
    Letting the oil drain overnight made removing the two oil filters a lot less messy. If you’ve change TD oil filters before you know what I mean.

    Ah, but its only messy if you dont make a little drip tray for the filters with a drain pipe that goes behind the starter

    Bit easier if you have the motor out on a stand. in all seriousness though, almost nothing came out when I removed the filters so I was pretty happy with that.

    I never ended up getting this tray from that chicken bloke on the other forum. But was meaning to... Also what a nightmare to install unless motor is on the bench.

    What black magic is this?!
    No matter how long I leave it draining out it's always the same. If I look at the internals of the filter, there will always be a pool of oil within it, that cant drain out unless you tilt the car 90 degrees onto the passenger side. And always wooshes out right at that final thread turn of the filter....

    Much easier.. I was advised to make it while I was doing the conversion and almost didn't because I was getting a bit impatient to get the engine in. Glad I took the time to do it..

    I was advised that the 'chicken' one didn't always fit depending on which starter motor you had. Mine was a big aftermarket starter so I made one from some scrap colorbond guttering and pop rivets.

    Dunno what to say mate. Literally not much more than a spoonful came out.

    Few things that didn't all happen in a day.
    Been a year and a half since I flushed some seriously chunky rust out of the rad and the coolant was brown again so once again I left it a bit late.

    Cut a large Titan fridge slide to size and mounted it on some gate hinges for some tilt.
    IMG_20220101_064844_0.jpgIMG_20220101_070056_52.jpgIMG_20220101_070303_32.jpg


    Replaced some gas struts to stop the sides on the camper falling on my head and made them a little longer on the kitchen side to give my head a little more clearance when up which is a stop gap to getting some new springs in the rear of the old coil cab.

    Took the old girl down Warrnambool and set up camp on a dairy farm where it was ~10c cooler than back home in northern vic.
    IMG_20211231_061038_2.jpg
    Water was borderline boiling point on the way home with the ambient nearing only 40c I had to turn the AC off a few times to keep it under the first max temp line while going up some hills.
    The EGT going from the usual 250-300 to 300-375 post turbo was still ok.
    It was interesting turning the AC on while rolling down a hill in second you could actually feel the ute lurch as it cut in.

    Also been in contact with WolfBox about some intermittent gremlins with my rear view camera and they have been excellent to deal with sending me out a replacement right away and then asking if I would like to send them some video of the old units touch screen problems.
    They seem keen to improve there product and are looking into what went wrong with mine.

    Yep I fitted an after market starter and had to take mine off, but good news is I still have it to fit to the new patrol ��
