Re: Aluminium Roof Rack

Gareth, I would recommend leaving the holes. You will cause more issues trying to fill them than what the holes cause.

Re: Electronic ignition for TB42

The resistor is in series with the coil, so it doesn't change the voltage, it changes the amperage, reducing the heat load.

Pretty sure it will be worse on bigger tyres.

Jack it up and check for play in the wheel bearings. Then start checking for anything else that's loose. If you find nothing, rotate the tyres and see if that makes a difference.

Re: Electronic ignition for TB42

Is the resistor installed?

But my TB42 was pretty heavy on coils too. Used to keep a spare in the car...

For me the most reliable was Nissan factory, with the factory resistor also installed. And make ure it's installed somewhere relatively cool.

That's exactly what I was trying to suggest earlier.

Recovery of un-equiped vehicles

I've been watching this guy's youtube videos for a while. He runs a business recovering stuck vehicles in Utah. Most of the vehicles he recovers are not enthusiastic 4x4 owner's cars, and a lot of them are rented sedans (the old saying about an Avis Polo being the best 4x4), but often also full-size...

Re: Patrol Pickup Advice

I think lots of them were sold without a bumper like this. Have seen lots of bakkies without rear bumpers at Michael's.

Re: Coolant from expansion tank - how?

The radiator cap has a small valve in the middle. This may look like a little rubber "button", or even just like a rivet.
As the water cools down, the volume in the radiator reduces. This causes a vacuum, which in turn opens this little valve, and the water is sucked back in.
