  1. I've had the front bullbar off and replaced the centre tube I bent while "gardening", found one side of the bar is bent back and tried to straighten it. Didn't fit in our press, so I put it under a stabilizer leg of a crane truck we had in the yard. Put the weight of the truck on it but it didn't straighten. I don't know what the PO hit but it must have been solid! Put it back on with some new bolts, sorted out the front hooks, relocated the solenoid box for the winch to under the bonnet, tidied up the cables for the winch, fitted pintle to the rear, lifted the spare tire up 75mm which took quite a bit of modifying the bracket, wired up the extra ciggy sockets, bought another pulley block, winch extension strap, winch dampener. These are all things I have been meaning to do for ages. Even though I got a wof recently I checked the front wheel bearings and one is shagged so I'll be doing that this week.
  2. How's your freeboard between the pedal and the master?
  3. What isn't returning? Be more specific Is the clutch engaging when you release the pedal?
  4. Also maybe have a look at what angle the arm was in relation to the pushrod in the old setup, pedal at rest angle and brakes applied angle. My mind says they should be at right angles to each other at full brake application
  5. Have you got enough stroke on that little lever arm?
  6. Find a tube socket that fits over the ceramic but sits on the metal of the plug and give it a whack with a hammer. That'll squash the washer under the plug. Works for copper washers under banjo bolts
  7. Probably a good thing it didn't happen half way down the south island
  8. Oh yeah, happens to Toyota's and Mitsubishi's all the time...
  9. Skinned the outside of the bathroom and made the separator wall between the kitchen and the bed. cabinets fitted cubbyhole space behind the cabinets, removable shelf floor I haven't made yet to access the water pump Benchtop with cooker and sink
  10. Wheel track width? Do you have airbags, was that the reason?
  11. If we take two chainsaws, there won't be any trees down
  12. Yep. I'll have one on board, but you can bring one too
  13. So @DoBro Jesus @JustHarry @00quattro00 @Slacker_Sam. @NickJ What sort of gear do you have on board? Really I just want to see if at least one other vehicle has a snatch strap. And a shovel or spade. If someone else has a fire extinguisher and a first aid kit that wouldn't go amiss too. And recovery points, @DoBro Jesus has the L200 got something?
  14. Fancy some bonus non-river pics? Green hut track Full of blardy Pajeros m8
  15. Chinamans creek, Slab hut creek at Green Hut/Commissioners flat
  16. Mackley river Nobles creek (caves) There's some rivers I couldn't find pics for. Waipuna river before the caves to Napoleon hill is more like a large creek. The Greenstone river at the end of Noname road is much better since the local landowner changed the exit position. Not deep. This all depends on rainfall of course
