    Awesome cheers kris! Will keep an eye for another LSD. my thoughts were to look out for a half decent LSD for the rear then swap the sloppy factory one in the front. Maybe shim it back to factory spec but nothing to fancy, just enough to help off road.

    Ground some notches in the C clips with a thin disc on a grinder. Made it miles easier!! so it’s wheels on and plodding around a paddock. only thing now is getting it running well, witch is proving a lot harder then I thought. has some weird solenoid that makes it idle with out the choke that’s feed from some very 80’s looking emissions looking box. unfortuntly the shorted it out and can’t find the fuse for it. jammed 12v on it and it seems to work when warm. Still runs like a bag of dicks and the idle and enrichment screws do fuck all. Pretty unhappy atm. might tinker with the factory carb this week, really the last thing I want to be doing, and hope of OS drag week are looking slim for the DYO slayer

    Got it running on the new carb, only idles with the choke so need to spend some time setting it up. But it runs and doesn’t leak so thats a win for this week. got the wheel bearings too. At $150 they cost x5 what the carina ones did, and $40 for diff fluid too. apprently old factory lsd’s fit in the front so might look into that too

    Cheers will double check that! And defiantly the right tool for the job! I asked some mates if they had any like that but no luck. ended up using my rounded ones, but holding a flat head against one side of the clip with the side of my hand so it opened more on the other side. while levering the screw driver and holding the c clip plyers in one hand I got a flat head in the other hand to try hook under the lifted side. lots of cursing as you could imagine

    Carb crapped it self and started leaking fuel, motors non cross flow to so straight onto the exh manifold, mint. thankfully these things are really popular in the states and parts are cheap on eBay, seal kit was $120 or whole new carb for $210. Should take 3 or so weeks to turn up so thought I’d work on some other things while I wait on that. Like the swivel hubs I’ve been putting off for some time.. Rebuilding swivel hubs sucks dick. NZAD did a really good kit that came with a bucket load of shims and good quality seals witch was around 100 and something. I’ll go to saeco tomorrow and get new wheel bearings and C clips that have plyer holes. factory ones don’t and left me throwing tools around in anger for some time

    Trashed the tits off it. Got it completely air borne witch was pretty sweet. Steering wheels on the piss now. check YouTube for a decline where the rear started to lift and come around. dug out by safs and landys, pretty much just coasted down on my diffs found a place called church (check rd sign) that was well setup and spent some time smoking and drinking there before coming back to civilisation

    With wof at the end of the month thought I better sort me shit and get it ready. For the past two months the tray has only been held on by two m14 bolts. that and mud flaps, got some flaps on super cheap but their a bit small. Should be sweet for wof, I’ll keep an eye out for plastic to make some more. new tail exhaust too. Took it from 1.75” to a mighty 2” and the muffler from 600mm to 500mm.

    Went out again today for a bit of a play. Headed up to the ship wreck, came across a bloke in his 2wd company vehicle bogged a couple km’s away from the exit. Super smart cookie after snatching him out we were a couple hours from full tide. Decided to head for it and made a dash for Wilson’s. Getting around the trees we had to wait for the waves to pull out and plant it around before the next wave. Made for some excitement, but turns out ye ol crumpy doesn’t like drinking salt water. made some horrible noises and with the dizzy being wet it ran mostly on 2-3 cyl for some time. This meant for unburnt cyl where its basically key banged its way down the beach for a couple km’s. so much so, my muffler literately exploded like a dive bottle in a fireplace, then continued driving thowing massive exploding flames out the mangled metal. pulled up on the dunes and cranked out the gas cooker for some dinner then headed home. And of course what do you do when your muffler explodes? Go through a tunnel https://youtu.be/o63FcbIIBvc https://youtu.be/eD4YRBY7ulk

    Hit the beach on Friday night, definitely a big difference with the alloy tray. Lack of traction in the rear is very noticeable but can make it up more dunes now so long as I get my gear selection right and carry momentum. went to the scrappy on Saturday and put it on the scales. Dropped 110kg with the new tray so happy with that! maybe replace the front bump with an alloy one will help shift the weight back onto the rear.
