    Jurgens Oryx Off Road Caravan - eBay UK

    I seem to recall that the south african made Jurgens caravan got quite a bad reputation for build/structural quality/strength, axles were soft and prone to dropping wheels off if memory serves. Found this pic, for example...

    Technical Benefits of a Snorkel

    As I see it the main benefit of a snorkel if you are not making deep water crossings or wading is that it is higher up and theoretically supplies cleaner air to the filter, only beneficial if you are operating in dusty conditions. I have personally seen the difference with trucks operating in...

    Jurgens Oryx Off Road Caravan - eBay UK

    I seem to recall that the Jurgens off road caravans went through a period of bad build quality and were prone to losing wheels and hubs due to axle failure, I may be wrong and it does look like a nice bit of kit. I have long fancied a Conqueror, I think they were one of the founding companies...

    Knuckle stud gone

    Have had mine do that repeatedly on the left wheel, not so much since I cleaned the threads and refitted with thread lock. P.S. also did the right side just to be safe. :)

    Just a indication of how difficult it is to get to remote places is these days, not to put a damper on your plans of course because we all know what we prefer to travel with. Harry Metcalf of Harry's garage on You Tube took his 1969 RR Silver Shadow to the arctic circle in February 2018 I...

    New cars to have breathalysers and speed limiters by 2022 following new EU rule

    So did I, especially because it's drive train is Ford Ranger which is Mazda B series. Just reinforces my desire to drive a basic car with no driver aids, going to have to think long and hard about what to get if I need to replace any of my current cars.

    Cry the Beloved Country

    Cleaned out my K&N filter...

    One of the things I was taught as a diesel apprentice was to never blow out a air filter unless it was desperately needed and then to change it asap, reason was as the paper element worked at stopping dust etc it would get clogged, blowing it out would leave the "holes" in the element larger and...

    Who had windows tinted ?

    I know the windows already have a factory tint, that's why I said factory tint is barely noticeable, perhaps I could have phrased that better? Obviously any tint added to factory will take the tint level on the window over the legal limit. Saying that my BeMtroubleyou seems to have more factory...

    Who had windows tinted ?

    Legal tint on front side windows is barely noticeable so I don't have any tint on driver and front passenger windows, it is illegal to tint the windscreen, and imo very dangerous to do especially for night driving. All my other windows are limo tint and the difference in interior temps is...

    Anybody know what this might be?

    Rather than a trip to the main dealer, I would advocate a trip to a auto electrician. Failing that then any good reputable independent mechanic would be advisable, it is unlikely that the main dealer will have a "technician" who is familiar with the vehicle given the age of said vehicle. If you...
