    Re: Wheel hub lockers

    That's the norm here. Even members that have no idea of a subject are willing to answer and even tell those who have been in an industry for years that they are wrong.

    Re: Some advice for chobe and Moremi please.

    You can definitely do what you asked. But would you want to? Linyanti - Savuti is a days hard 4x4 low range drive all on it's own as are parts of the rest. You need more rest than time on the road.

    Re: Clutch problem - need advice

    This was a hit and miss diagnosis by either unqualified persons or by a business milking you. Fluid levels, a test and adjustment should have been the sequence before flushing and then replacing.
