Re: Tuning for altitude?

I bought my 3.0 D up in Johannesburg. When I brought it down to Durban it would not idle. I took it to Nissan in Pinetown and they said the turbo was shot. I replaced the turbo at great expense only to find it still would not idle. It turned out to be the altitude compensator on the ECU. The chap sa...

Re: Second Battery System

Re: Western Coast and Southern Namibia

Hi Ian and thank you for the post, I really enjoyed having memories coming back. The trip report is well written and tons of great pictures too, just the kind of thing that makes my mouth water and feet itch. I even saw things I had missed on my own trip. :goodpost:

Re: Camping power requirements

Re: Mellville and moon

Hi Wietsche. Perhaps contact Rick Melville at Its his name in that company and although I think he is no longer in partnership, he should be able to connect you with someone.

My first tires were muddies, Coopers, but they started to feather and I was told that they often do when a lot of use is on tar. I dont know if this is true or not. My next tires were BF all terrain and I was extremely pleased with them and found them to be better in sand. Often the treads of the mu...
