  1. Re: Hi got a Chev Nomad can i do overland trips

    Yes for sure. Nice soft tyres and you can handle sandy conditions as well. Only problem will be to get going in sand. Could burn the clutch.

    Otherwise, enjoy.

    Re: Upgrade my car carrier

    Yes, I understand where you are going with this. But I did not add rigidity on the the trailer. Just strength.

    The whole trailer is actually very flexible.

    Re: Upgrade my car carrier

    I regularly "kick the tyres". Check bearings. Check brakes. Look for cracks, actively. It is an item that takes the brunt of the punishment. Needs to stay reliable.

    Re: Feroza 7AGE 20V SILVERTOP TOYOTA

    On these carbs you need to start at the bottom.
    Strip it down and make sure all o-rings and rubbers are good. Accelerator diaphragm is the first to perish.
    Clean them properly with Carb Cleaner....

    Re: Upgrade my car carrier

    While loading the tractor I noticed some cracks in the a-frame. They were def not new as they had rust in them.

    So yesterday I pulled out the A-frame and strengthened it.

    Re: Discovery: What have you done with your Discovery today?

    All headlights are acrylic today. So it is harder than anything you put over it.

    Sand it with 1500grid and then 2000. Then buff.

    Just measure the charge voltage. Should never be higher that about 14,2v. Measured on the battery.
  19. Re: Main battery getting fried in Toyota Landcruiser Bakkie

    I fried batteries as well, but it was due to the solar regulator that was overcharging. It was one of those analogue units. Changed to a digital 10 A unit and that was about 3yrs ago. No problems...
