Re: '76' 712M in AZ

I think maybe what he's trying to say is that it's sad to think that someone would buy a vehicle that the group loves solely out of consideration for the resale value. Of course it's great that vehicles maintain resale value, and keep in business those who earn a living buying low and selling high -...

Re: Wheel Flange/Hub Gear Casing - help needed

It definitely helps to have multiple sets of wrenches/spanners so as to have extras for the purpose of modification. My best example was cutting the open end off an 11mm one to be able to get at the top nut of the fuel pump. Put the cut bit on the nut, and putting a suitably sized closed-end wrench ...

Re: Rear backing plate damage...

Aahh. I was wondering if maybe there was some kind of lesson there about certain rims or tires that dont fit well.
Must have been scary when it happened.

Re: G'day, new here, where do you think my oil is leaking?

Re: Front portal leak

Mine is doing the same thing right after I replaced all the relevant seals... That one being discussed is quite pricey, as far as seals go. While you are at it, you might as well re-grease the CV joint. I couldn't find a source for speedi-sleeves that was significantly cheaper than a new mud deflect...

Fitting an oil pressure gauge

I thought I would post my solution to fitting the oil pressure sender and gauge. IMG_01761.jpg I used a 100 PSI VDO gauge and sender unit, and installed it by screwing an M10-1/8NPT adapter into the engine where the oil pressure sender goes, then a grease gun hose, the longest I could find (this was...
