    Re: Chassis bend?

    About that, what annoys me about the pikup rear springs, is that they are shorter than the springs on a landcruiser or hilux.

    I guess they are fine for normal use, but in my situation with the...

    Whew, that's good to hear Zulu Cowboy.

    Is there a recommended interval for it or do you just play by ear?
  6. Timing chain change interval for 2014 pikup?

    Hi guys, my 2014 pikup 2.2 mhawk has 142,000 km's on it. Has been regularly serviced every 10,000 km's. But it just hit me that there has never been mention of the timing chain being replaced.

    So...

    Re: Pikup Recovery Points

    Heavy duty recovery points at the front at least, is one thing that the pikup does not have.

    Why do I say that? Because I took mine into our 4WD shop to have some installed, and after putting it...

  14. Re: MediaRelease: New-look Pik Up single cab S6 amplifies Mahindra value offering

    Interesting that the service intervals are 20,000 km's, even though it's a mHawk engine which in my 2014 pikup has to be oil changed every 10,000 km's.

    I understand the engine is exactly the same...

    2014 scorpio 4WD front bearings

    Just noticed when getting new tyres that the front left wheel was sloppy like the bearings need adjusting.

    So since I'm not confident to do it myself it's at the local garage. The vehicle has...

    Re: Pik-up 4x4 DC stiff steering

    As per hedgehog, that "stiffness" is actually massive strain you are putting on parts. Don't put it in 4WD unless on a soft surface that allows the tyres to slide.

    Oh i didn't know all that.

    I used to follow his Australian thread and I did think it all seemed very loaded up but just assumed it must be within spec or he wouldn't be doing it.

    How many km's on that engine?
  25. Re: Media Release: SA first country globally to launch automatic on the Mahindra

    Let's see how this works out. Personally i think the manual gearbox in the pikup is not a great gearbox, now before fixing it they are putting out an auto.

  32. Re: Mahindra scorpio pik up, new pik up wheel spacers

    How would you reduce them to 30 mm? On a lathe or something?

    If so, at least it would give you the option if you found 30 mm was too fat, you could turn them down some more.
