  1. Hi Moses is right i could be interested only just spotted this post but if you still have them can you please let me know what condition theyre in & what you want for them cheers ian
  2. been driving it for a couple of days now ive towed a trailer & had it in 4wd all working well much quieter & smoother box than the t5 was thats for sure the clutch feels good so i think its a success cheers ian
  3. Hi Moses I finally got time to get the ute going thanks to the weather it rained all night & all day so i had a good excuse to stay in the shed everything has fitted well with no problems i havent driven it far yet just in & out of the shed as i still have to modify the trans tunnel cover plate for the gear stick before i put the floor mat back in & then its all good to go cheers ian
  4. great article very informative thank you cheers ian
  5. Hi Moses its not actually copper i had to look twice when i bought it must be a corrosion resistant coating but it is steel i to like silver solder but i used what i had on hand i cant imagine any problem with it cheers ian
  6. Hi Moses yes its a t5 to ax15 conversion & yes its an np208 i was able to get the gearbox from a wreckers yard & the slave cylinder from ebay as you can see in these pics ive just converted the slave cylinder from the plastic tube to steel line the brazing looks a bit rough but it will do the job just fine im sure now i just have to get some fitting next time i go to albany hopefully later this week or early next that way i can leave my existing clutch line unmodified the fsj's are a bit thin on the ground over here i think mainly due to poor exchange rates at the time so they were priced out of peoples price range also fuel consumption was an issue so there was a lot more land rovers,landcruisers & nissan patrols the landcruiser ended up coming out on top as the nations prefered 4x4 as for our films your right we do have some great stuff have a look at the trailer on this link its 1 im waiting for http://www.roughstuffmovie.com/ cheers ian
  7. Hi Moses ive been a bit slow on this job but ive had to wait on parts & had a lot of work commitments but ive got most of the parts required now just need to adapt the hydraulic line for the clutch but that should be easy enough ive had the shaft lengths altered by 60mm as the box is 60mm longer got the pilot bush from novak & dummies the transfer up to the ax15 it is on a slightly different angle probably only about 5 degrees or so anti clockwise if anything it looks like it will just improve clearances & the increased front shaft angle will be minimal especially now the front shaft is 60mm longer hopefully ill get a chance to put a few hours into it soon im missing the old girl cheers ian
  8. Hi 4x4 Freakie thanks for the compliment the light bar i have is a 42" illuminator they are available through an aussie supplier called 4wdsupercentre.com.au they have heaps of gear at great prices but im not sure if they ship international cheers ian
  9. my transfer case is the np 208 so i think it should bolt straight up but as you say ive got to find a gearbox first availability is not great & what there is tends to be over priced cheers ian
  10. well its 1 thing after another lately the t5 jut spat 3rd gear today so ill be doing some research on a better alternative i still want an overdrive box so probably wont go back to the original t176 4spd i think an ax15 might be ok but ill keep looking to see whats available & strong enough cheers ian
  11. Hi Moses the motorcraft carby is working well & fuel economy is much better now the 4.2 is back in yes its supposed to be spring here but someone forgot to tell winter its over yes i have a trip planned but ill be flying im going to queensland for 10 days to visit my brother he's got quite a few ineresting things planned including a few days 4wheel driving on fraser island & a trip up to cairns should be great fun would have loved to do it in my own vehicle but its on the opposite side of the country i think he's got some fishing planned as well his brother inlaw has a 53' riviera i think were going to head out on that for day trip cant wait i'm flying out on friday the 14th cheers ian
  12. Hi moses ive got it sorted out there was another problem when i opened it up the pin through the carrier was coming out & started hitting the back of the pinion so i welded a washer over each end so it cant come out again this saved me from having to open the locker which was proving to be impossible with the tools i have also i replace all bearings which meant the original shims were incorrect fortunately the kit i bought has shims so i was able to set it up it is now quieter than it was at speed but still make a little noise at low speed the kit i used was the motive gear kit from summit racing it came with crown wheel bolts too but theyre not needed cheers ian
  13. Hi Moses its an amc 20 in the rear i havent checked wheather these are a crush sleeve or can be retourqued to take up the bearing play but im sure ill find out cheers ian
  14. Hi Moses ive been adding a few things to Harry it now has a roof rack ,2 awnings ,a 42" light bar ,9" led spotties ,a winch ,10 disc stacker & an arial & craddle for the mobile phone for better reception up next will be the dual battery system & fit out the back its done the pinion seal in the rear diff theres a little bit of play in the bearing so i think that best be my next priority cheers ian
