Re: HELP - Radiator leaks!!

Petri, i think you made the right call.

If not for the time thing, the all-aluminium Universal Coolers job is the answer, but since they can't help, new OEM is never a bad option.

Re: HELP - Radiator leaks!!

Ek het 'n Universal Coolers radiator en intercooler in my kar. Hulle is huidiglik Michael se primere verskaffer vir beide radiators en intercoolers.

Vakmanskap is uitstekend. Nie goedkoop nie, maar ek dink hierdie is een area waar mens eerder nie die goekoopste opsie vat nie...

Re: 4.8 engine and transmission mounts

I suspect this is a common problem for you okes who live by the seaside.

I did mine recently, and found just a little surface rust. But I struggled quite a bit with the bolts between the mounts and the box itself.

Re: 4500 GL - Sorting, Cleanup, Tips, Tricks, Info

Danie het jy nog jou agterste sway bar in? Vir een of ander rede het ek gedink jy het hom afgehaal? Petri, mens beide kan en moet die timing stel. Dit is elektronies, maar die module sit binne-in die distributor. Baie mense advance die timing te veel. Die enjins is nogal geneig om te ping en mens mo...

Re: 4500 GL - Sorting, Cleanup, Tips, Tricks, Info

My two cents:

The fuel consumption and performance you have been getting is far too good for this to be fuel pump.

I reckon this is spark related. Dizzy, dizzy cap, rotor, coil, or plug leads...

Re: My Patrol het beter petol verbruik

I have never stripped a new one, but mine's spring was also very weak.

Re: Alternative to 265/70/16 Tyres, Please??

Personally I prefer the 255/85R16. However, the choice of brands available in that size is extremely limited, and I doubt it really makes much difference anywhere except in heavily rutted thick sand. Am currently running Dunlop muds in 255/85, and have been very happy with them, but they do wear out...

Re: My 1998 GU 4500 GL..........

Petri, I make a little spanner for locking the hubs. Fits easily in a door pocket or cubby hole and has a 13mm spanner on the other end (for a battery clamp).
