    Toyota never made that water bottle in the first place. It was subcontracted to Mr What Went Wong, from day 1.

    Re: 1995 Toyota Camry expansion tank

    Mixing the plastics is a huge thing. Picking the right blend is the big problem.

    I have seen plenty older cars with a brittle tank, but looks like the latter cars use a different blend.

    Ja, dit gaan aanhou. Daardie engine moet uit en oor ingesit word. As daar so baie skete is, dan kan en net imagine hoe lyk al die ratkas en engine mountings.

    Why no carrier bearings on a trailer?

    Carrier bearings, as I know them are being used more and more on cars. Initially they were just on the fwd Golfs, but now the Renaults have been using them in the back as well.

    So why not use them...
  20. Re: What manual gearbox oil will help with notchy shifting and hard cold shifting?

    Oil that is a bit heavier. Sometimes ATF is used and I totally believe that is to light. ATF is at about 15w.

    Make sure what that gearbox demands.

    I haven't pulled the piston yet, but I doubt it.

    If the pipe leeks air, it make the combustion hotter, higher EGT, but it should also cut the fuelling.

    Re: Extremely hard ride

    Some tricks here.

    Firstly the mix shriks 1.5%. So you can't use an existing bush to make a mould .

    Then I also reccommend you make a flanged bush.

    So the idea is to make 2 bushes. 2 halves....

    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.
