    The people have spoken

    I do not have a strong view either way on whether the UK should leave the EU or stay. However what is clear that over the last 20 years or so many skilled and semi-skilled workers have benefited from an increased standard of living while the those with less to offer have seen their standard of...

    Anyone running AGM battery under the hood?

    Hi @WC57 I have almost exactly the setup on my UK based 80 that @StarCruiser describes above. It has worked very well for me. Some other advantages are that the standard "wet" start battery is cheap to buy and most AGM batteries are happy to provide emergency start current should you need it.

    Breakdown East of the Cederberg Mountains South Africa

    Hiya Chris :) Great to hear from you. We were glad to survive as well, it is an amazingly remote place. I now keep a 17mm ring spanner in my door pocket to remind me to check those nuts and the bottom of the rear shocks properly. We had recently made a lot of deep river crossings and would...

    Breakdown East of the Cederberg Mountains South Africa

    Below is a copy of my recent posting I made on the South Africa LCCSA forum of some fun Zeda and I had when exploring east of the Cederberg in the Western Cape of South Africa. Around 200Km NNE of Cape Town. The area is desert/semi desert and surprisingly remote. Having spent the weekend of...

    Quick bit of CDL advice please

    Cheers Rob Thanks for the information. The breather on my CDL has rotted at the T joint so I am pretty sure it has allowed water in. Especally as we did a lot of deep swimming earlier this year when in Lesotho. Reckon I will take the exactly the same route as you. Hi @AndycruiserguyLomas...

    Puzzled by Sinking Brake Pedal

    Hi Towpack. I am in agreement with you in using a simple bleeding system. The method I use is very simply and cheap. I attach a metre or so of clear plastic tube (ID 6mm) to each bleed nipple in turn and tape the top of it to the side of the car so it is well above the height of the brake...

    Puzzled by Sinking Brake Pedal

    Please accept my apologies for the delay in returning to this forum but our NS knuckle steering arm parted company with the steering knuckle in a remote area to the east of the Cederberg which involved a bit of an adventure (including hiring another 4x4) to sort out. I will post separately about...

    please post image of exploded diagram of front hub / steering knuckle

    Hi, we are travelling in the Karoo in our 80 series and I managed to break the studs holding the steering knuckle arm to the knuckle. Stripped out the knuckle and we walked out with it the next morning. Very remote area so it was a long hot day to get to a farm. We have new studs etc. and plan...
