Re: Spares for bushtrip

How old is it now Rob? Replace belts if you haven't done so in the last 2-3 years, and take the old ones as spares rather than keeping the old ones on and taking new spares. If it's more than 10 or 15 years old, it's probably a good idea to replace all the water (cooling system and heater) hoses as ...

Re: Extra oil cooler for 4,8

Is that engine oil temp Onematch? If so, I suspect there is an issue with the measurement. Either the sender is faulty or the calibration is incorrect, or the sender is getting cooled down somehow.

I can't see the temps really being that low.

Re: Extra oil cooler for 4,8

Oil is generally fine to at least 130 degrees.

But your engine temps really need to be considerably over 60 degrees. I think the thermostat probably opens at either 73 or 78 degrees. And engine oil should ideally be at least the same or a bit higher.

Re: Clips/clamps to attach a flashlight to my door

I suspect in the long term the weight and vibration will br3ak the door trim panels in the long term.

However you can get steel clips at decent bolt and nut shops.

Re: Dino day - Saturday 5 October

Very very interesting, thanks for all the graphs. I noticed most runs were pretty close to each other, but I had a difference of about 35Nm round 2250rpm where the second run peaked. I wonder if the engine wasn't fully up to temp yet on the first run and the electrickery held back a bit? I would be...

Re: Me and bad habits!

Something interesting. I was looking at the results of last weekend's dyno day, and accidentally found dyno graphs from a previous forun dyno day (6 November 2010), when my car still had it's original engine. Now I realize that the runs were done on different dynos in different weather and with diff...

Re: Dino day - Saturday 5 October

Here are the results of all the Patrols in tabular form: Results Table.JPG Note that I tried to take the average of two runs on each car. I wanted to do a graph of all the cars, but couldn't get it to work. My Excell skills are rather lacking, and it gets way too confusing anyway. So I did a couple ...
