    Re: Boat trailer axle replacement

    That is an option, but I figured I would have much easier access to bolts and more room to work with the boat off. It also give me an excuse to go catch some bass once the work is done

    Re: Nissan Navara sweating gearbox

    The motor does not die immediately, splutters for a few secs and then dies. Also after leaving it for half an hour or so it starts but then splutters for a few secs and dies again.
