    Re: Gas bottle monitor

    This + 1000. A lot more accurate and reliable. So much so you can calculate exactly how much gas you used. As mentioned weight of empty bottle is stamped on bottle.
  2. Re: Replace retaining straps for Jurgens XT140 tent

    Burn the ends of the webbing with a soldering iron and use the soldering iron to make the six holes through the straps for the six bolts. Get the wife to sew some velcro on to the straps (do a test...
  3. Re: Replace retaining straps for Jurgens XT140 tent

    Yes it can be done. The most difficult part is getting the base loose enough off the frame to get the old straps out and the new ones in. You have to pitch the tent and get the mattress out. While...

    Re: Fridge, cover or not?

    Some of the freezer covers air to compressors have a rather fine mesch that I found restrict air flow. IOW some covers insulation might possibly help but the vents for cooling are restricted by the...

    Re: Bundu Awn on an Echo Namib?

    I have the solar permanently connected via the WRND. Parking under an afdak with the roof raised it just clears the roof and so sees no sun. I am also concerned about the solar being visible /...

    Re: Bundu Awn on an Echo Namib?

    Will do just busy with something. The Namib panel has a 150 solar system which I do not use (keep as a standby) as I have 2x 100W (2 x 100W) panels, the second being a loose panel I can put in the...

    Re: Bundu Awn on an Echo Namib?

    Yes the 100W panel is permanently fitted. I used broad aluminium strip which is bolted to panel and siliconed onto the roof. I had to remove an 80W which was siliconed to roof and it was a challenge...

    Just FYI

    A comment on this point. On my 2.5tdi diesel WL Ford with 250K km I was interested in how much oil residue was in the intercooler. I took it off and found very little. Washed it out with...
  11. Re: Continues to run couple seconds after shut-off: Diesel 2001 Pajero 5speed 3200 En

    Do a systematic step by step elimination of the possibilities starting at the easiest, most logical, least involved, cheapest possibilities first.

    I agree on the fuel build up in the inlet...

  14. Re: Oil colour Pajero Sport 2.5 Diesel 2015

    I see an increasing tendency by workshops to use engine flushes. I refuse to allow such for my vehicle. If a good quality engine oil is used and service periods are adhered to there is no reason to...

    Re: Transkei Road trip

    If your destination is Mboytji, I would go via Lisikisiki instead of Port St Johns. Try and get the way points for the turn off to Mboytji. Maybe the sign posting has improved from my last visit.
  17. Re: Oil colour Pajero Sport 2.5 Diesel 2015

    Very definitely. Especially with a good quality high detergent dispersant engine oil. Ie either there is not much to disperse or it is not being dispersed as it should. Keep in mind it would be of...
  18. Re: Oil colour Pajero Sport 2.5 Diesel 2015

    The matter of the oil condition and appearance I have commented on extensively. It can be extremely deceptive / misleading. The answer is obviously to have the oil tested by an oil analysis lab but...

    Re: Quick EGR question

    My vehicle had 110K km and it was just slightly oily. Get some on with an endoscope to have a look for you. You can buy ones that work with your phone as well - about R300!

    Re: Generator Fuel Tank

    The chain trick does take a while and is not a quick fix. If you contact your local Silverton branch they do much bigger tanks and should be able to do a genny tank.
