Heat rises. Side tanks on a radiator don't make sense to my old analogue brain.

Re: Me and bad habits!

Random thought while reading this thread and a point for you diesel guys to maybe consider when having EGT troubles. I had an EGT temp problem on a Colt that I couldn't figure out till I eventually replaced the sender probe with a new one and all EGT problems went away. I buy from MGL Avionics

Re: SWB Patrol in Knysna

With that said though, I have encountered some off road terrain where the Pajero has left me lacking (IFS and IRS just do not flex well - does not matter if you have a rear diff lock or bigger tires...

But it was a rush to get the groceries bought before lockdown so I didn't do my usual amount of OTT planning. But anyhoo lessons learned for next time It has a built...

Re: Is this a TB42 or TD42

Buying from them is like buying from an auction. The only difference is that you don't bid, the price is fixed. Take a look at their smallprint. Voetstoets. They push it as "wholesale" "car industry" etc, not retail. You sign away your consumer rights. Their business model is (in my opinion) to buy ...

Re: Is this a TB42 or TD42

Only buy from WeBuyCars if you know exactly what you're doing and if the price is very right. In this instance it seems to me like you must walk away from it

Re: Who is doing what to their patrols ?

Drawer system and finishing the roof rack refurbishment. But doing quarantine with a grandchild who likes my attention is making it a slow process. Luckily I have 21 days for it Got several other smaller projects that depend on whether or not I have the groceries in the garage. It was chaotic trying...

Re: Diff lock troubleshooting

When I flip my difflock switch I sometimes get a split second glimmer of an ABS light. What lights are we supposed to see when, and what colour? Normal 2H = no lights? 4H and 4L = green 4x4 light Difflock switched on = what? Apologies for rookie questions but my foreign patrols are diesel donkeys wi...
