Re: Patrol/Safari bits for Sani

Well these are all things that have popped up, and not part of the planned SFA conversion. These things will also really be solved once we know how it works in real life. This driving around the block to test, does not imitate real life. Operating temperatures are not reached. The brakes have also h...

Re: Patrol/Safari bits for Sani

My friend Google has one or two articles of it. It is an alternative to that spring type that measures the distance between axle and frame. I can't find out exactly how it works, besides that it's not a serviceable item like the spring type, and can only be replaced if faulty. Out of interest, $320 ...

Re: Patrol/Safari bits for Sani

Peter, Yes, you are totally correct. Only after I read my response again, I realized that to limit or adjust it any way, means you are proportioning it to the front. Even in our case where the front will always be a constant. Thanks for that. I sometimes get too smart for my own good. Anyhow, so I m...

Re: Patrol/Safari bits for Sani

Thanks Peter. I spoke to Reenen last night to get some info and advise. He tells me the Safari did not have a proportioning/load sensing valve. So that clear's that up. I did not check one or two things in my process, one of them being to get someone to jump on the brake and see if the brakes do act...

Re: Patrol/Safari bits for Sani

Test drive gives me locking rear left wheel as soon as it gets slight heat into it. That side seems to have a lot more wear on the shoes that the driver side. Any experts on drum brake systems that can help with some advice please. Next thing I can try, is swop the shoes, or drums between left and r...

Re: Patrol/Safari bits for Sani

Slight problem yesterday. One rear wheel started locking up at the slightest touch of the pedal. Got home to find brake fluid running out all over my rim. Stripped it down to find 40 years worth of sand in the slave cylinder. Cleaned it all up, and ran out of day light. Decided to rather strip the o...

Re: Patrol/Safari bits for Sani

Now to find a fuel tank sorted. Got it running with a battery from my solar setup thats laying on the floor behind the passenger seat, so need to look at that. Route the exhaust around everything, as this 1 meter long exhaust is a bit loud with my old age catching up like this. Then the plans start ...
