Re: Browne Davis Long Range Fuel Tanks

I've had a long range main tank from Northern Off-road fitted over two years ago and haven't had any issues - it has also taken a beating on the River Trip as it does hang a little low - there are a couple of dents in it now, but overall I am very happy and the range improvement is substantial. :th...

Re: Browne Davis Long Range Fuel Tanks

I see the Browne Davis is aluminium coated SS, not sure what the advantage is... They are not stainless steel. They are 2mm cold rolled aluminum coated steel. I am very seriously looking at this option for the Storm Trooper. I have looked extensively for local solutions and everyone has had problem...

Re: Power-steering fluid leak

So got under the troll and first thing I learned was give a good clean with engine cleaner and high pressure washer before working on oil leaks... :oldtimer: One of the aluminum lines running down from the power steering reservoir had rubbed through.

I just finished a quick Tsitsikamma caravan trip and when I got home a was backing the caravan into the garage I noted smoke coming out of the left front wheel well. At the time I dismissed it as a hole in the exhaust, after driving for 7 hours I was not interested in tracing a problem... get carava...

Re: Storm Trooper RGM supercharged 4.8

It is a bosch item and I was led to believe you could not obtain them in S.A.... special order from Germany, etc. The brushes had worn out in it so I set about fabricating new brushes bu...

Re: Stuck!!

It took a serious pull to get the front straight and nothing but a kitted jeep could even get to me. Luckily it stil...
