    Re: Td5 MSB remap

    I fitted a VNT turbo, and larger intercooler to my Td5.

    It reduced turbo lag but it felt as if I could get more out of the turbo.

    I made contact with Nicky from Rovertech and between the two of...

    When the turbo was changed, the workshop who did the job didn't fit the boost pipe that I provided, they fitted the standard one which pressed up against the body and suspension...

    Defender Re: Puma centre diff lock

    Oh... also. Sometimes the diff doesn't engage immediately, you have to drive a little. More so for disengaging. If it struggles to disengage try reverse.

    Both been replaced recently.

    The flywheel less than 5000 km ago. The vibration was there before and it remained.

  11. Re: Which spinning reel for rock and surf angling?

    Heard a funny story the other day, not the punchline, but part of the story was that you had to own a Penn 49A, "en hy gooi 'n kraainess nog voor jy hom van die bakkie af gehaal het".
  12. Re: Which spinning reel for rock and surf angling?

    Penn Slammer, Battle and Spinfisher grinders are very popular.

    Their multipliers not so much. The Penn multipliers that you do occasionally see are the Squall and Fathom.
  13. Re: Which spinning reel for rock and surf angling?

    Forgot about the Diawa BG, great all rounder. If you're after an unsealed real, you won't go wrong with a BG.

    Some guys just cable tie it to the rod.

  15. Re: Which spinning reel for rock and surf angling?

    You quoted me..



    I wouldn't agree with this... some of the best anglers in the country use grinders.

  16. Re: Which spinning reel for rock and surf angling?

    Correct, multipliers have come a long way.

  19. Re: Which spinning reel for rock and surf angling?

    It is, but if you're going to a grinder in the salt there is little point in not changing to braid.

    Grinders have become more popular in salt because the thinner braid can be fished on them,...

  21. Re: Which spinning reel for rock and surf angling?

    First off, why you changing to a grinder? Your Multipliers will out last grinders by decades and for far less money.

    As far as grinders go, it depends on what you want to do...
