    Hi Neighbor!

    I also have a 100, used daily on the road but being in Zimbabwe it gets the occasional off road adventure.. I'm fairly new to off road driving so I don't push my luck but I have to say the 100 series is very capable off road, It's more capable than I am brave so far. Super comfy as well. Mine is...

    Timing belt intervals 100

    Timing belt, tensioner and pulley all replaced. As suspected all looked like brand new. But at least I now have the piece of mind that all should be good for another 5 years. I can't believe how easy a job it is to do on a 1HDT, all done and the front and rear brakes checked in under an hour...

    Timing belt intervals 100

    Hi uHu, I'm sure you're right re the belt but as you say it won't do any harm especially as the truck sits for 6-8 months at a time. I'll post a pic of the one that comes off. I've had a rummage through the old receipts and found the one for the timing belt. Theres no mention of tensioner or...

    Timing belt intervals 100

    Hi Chapel, My cruiser has the 12v engine, is it best to do the water pump at the same time on these?

    Timing belt intervals 100

    Decided it's probably a good idea to do mine the belt has only been on for 18000km but it's now over 4 years old and the car spends long periods parked up.. Better safe than sorry.

    Intercooler yes or no

    Great, I'm happy with the current performance so as long as I'm not doing any harm by running a bit leaner then I'll leave it be. I've got this if I want power .. Cheers

    Intercooler yes or no

    So it's just over a year since I had the intercooler fitted and I still haven't been to the diesel specialist to have the engine tuned/adjusted to make the best of the IC. Maybe I'll get time this trip... Will it do any harm running it with an IC and not having the engine adjusted to suit the...

    Is there not enough demand for decent camping kit in the UK ?

    Have a look at https://tuff-trek.com they've got some good gear and they stock the Bundutec tent I've got one in Zimbabwe and it's great. The guy who runs it is very helpful and knows his stuff. He was happy to demo the Bundutec even after I told him I'd be buying it directly from the factory in...

    Steering wheel Cover

    It's really not that bad, there's a video on youtube. It took me about half an hour to do the last one the first was more like 45mins. Fantastic improvement on my cruiser looks like a new wheel.

    Technical Benefits of a Snorkel

    For those who have a snorkel, have you closed off the drain holes in the filter housing? The rubber oneway type of valve on mine is quite hard and doesn't look like it would stop water ingress if it was deep enough.

    Technical Benefits of a Snorkel

    I've fitted a cheap Ebay one to my 100 and I'm very happy with it, It helps keep the dust out of the air filter and also allows for cooler air intake. The Ebay one I got seems to be a pretty good copy of the much more expensive ones and as long as it's fitted well it will do the job. I don't see...

    Steering rack leaking

    My power steering rack has developed a leak from the top where the steering column joins the rack. Has anyone else on the forum had this problem? I've attached a picture but it isn't very clear. It seems to be leaking from under the rubber dust cover.
