    re oiling sealed shocks

    yes you are correct, on a mono tube the high pressure nitrogen is seperated by a piston but on a twin tube it pressurises directly onto the oil by the looks

    re oiling sealed shocks

    can i be ultra cheap and re-oil shocks with a slightly heaver weight oil (ie a 40weight) i guess i can drill, drain, tap and plug, and refill them to gain some more shock compression resistance? or is it far too gash ?
  5. sanding them takes a lil sand and try and repeat. and if you over sand you can always build them up with some solder and a lil propane torch.

    Running different width tyres on a full time 4wd vehicle

    You were too busy eating a pie , ok so whats the answer to my question vehicular is nissan largo 4wd fronts 225 45 17's rears 255 40 17's 0.24% difference in circ. equates to 2.4m difference in travel per 1000m
  11. Whats the go with running different width tyres on a full time 4wd vehicle - , just wondering what % different rolling diameter is ok before the centre diff gets unhappy (open centre diff - difference calculated at 0.5% to 0.9% depending on wheel options) edit - found a staggered wheel option that will allow 0.24% rolling difference

    I had a kit, it was a CDT one, had a log manifold, inlet manifold, t04 turbo, 2" SU carb, water injection. was fairly ag-spec by todays standards. also had decompression plate. turbo had no wastegate, but there was provision for one to be put on the manifold (which was split pulse)
