Re: John Deere Hitch Receiver

Being for a John Deere - do they have the right load capacity?

Re: Craigslist

Thanks for that - yes double checked the rules about posting frequency etc. I guess I would not have to post here (the main reason this is the only forum I go on that often has links to Craigslist so people know about it) if Craigslist had a decent help system - like a automatically generated messag...

Re: Craigslist

An older thread of mine but recently started having the same issues after a period of no problems. Have been posting bits for sale locally and was fine. There are similar items for sale and all of a sudden some of my listings are flagged for removal for no apparent reason. They have previously been ...

Re: Sluggish braking

Your issues are also symptomatic of the rubber brake hoses de-laminating on the inside not allowing fluid through and causing brake pressures to increase without much braking effort.

Re: My latest project - Disc Brakes for a 710/712

Brake disk - brake rotor are the same thing and the term can be used interchangably. The term rotor comes the fact that it rotates with the wheel.

Re: Fuel types

If it needs 97 RON then compression ratio must be up around 10:1 which seems off for a mil vehicle which are usually designed to run on any crappy old fuel out in the field. I do not know Volvo engines at all and googling doesnt give me an answer - does the B30 have aluminium heads or cast iron head...

Re: Fuel types

Lead additives are not legal here so I use FlashLube upper cylinder lubricant which has the same result without the lead.

I agree with the others - hi octane fuel is a waste unless the engine is modified with high compression.

Re: My latest project - Disc Brakes for a 710/712

Thats odd as I have Mach 5 rims have normal rims not those round rims. But while the company that made the rims are still in business - I believe in another form, I had heard that they no longer make the Mach 5 rims though Landrover parts sellers like Paddocks in the UK are still selling them (and g...

Re: My latest project - Disc Brakes for a 710/712

Additionally, an interesting point is that "technically" all widened rims used if a Haflinger was fitted with the optional Diamond Tread Tyres by Haflinger Sales and Service, are illegal.....as they are banded. :evil: :oops: :cry: Yes but technically done by the manufacturer so is legal - but if a ...

Re: My latest project - Disc Brakes for a 710/712

Yes full engineering of the brakes are technically required but a professional job like you have done would not be questioned and most authorities would just not know what a Pinz is and what they came with. Spacers are a different matter but we can legally change track by up to 50mm (some States onl...

Re: My latest project - Disc Brakes for a 710/712

I take it that wheel adaptors/spacer are legal in the US - unfortunately in Aust they are completely illegal except if a OEM fitment. Get caught with them here and your vehicle has to be towed home.
