Re: Stromberg carb metering needle part numbers

Re: Stage 1 TDi Station Wagon

The RRC gearing does provide what you are asking for and frankly, I think it is a better box than the R380.

Re: Steering relay.

OMG what am I looking looking at there in the photo? Is it top looking down, back looking front, or what?

PAS options vary a lot and there were some after market conversions kits on the market at different times. The most common approach has generally been to fit the RRC set up.

Re: Cheshire Fire Brigade Stage 1 V8

Would love to see the odd picture of the project, if you remember. I imagine getting the pumps will be the hardest.

Oh, no pumps in this one?

Re: Stage 1 TDi Station Wagon

Hi welcome aboard.

Depending on what you want to do with it, you might want to think going back to LT95 too. Changing the hi-ratio to RRC gives you a higher top speed.

I could see a future gearbox rebuilder cursing you if you don't leave a note somewhere that you used the loctite product :lol:

Re: Restoration

To be honest, I'm not really surprised and the wear/damage you show is what I would expect from a truck gearbox with comparatively low miles (for a truck that it is, not a car). If it has had its regular oil refill, then it should all be good for half a million k's. When our D2 had its auto trans re...

Re: Half Shafts

Can't help here, but you might want to ask on the NZ Ex Army Stage 1 FB group. At least one member has replaced his in recent weeks.

Re: Mudflaps

Whereas in New Zealand, mud flaps are not required (they are optional) and you rarely see them here on Series III's. Part of the reason was that they get in the way in soft mud (which we have a lot of :D).

Re: Gumtree again

Re: Restoration

Well I think it looks the bees knees.

Would you consider leaving it as zinc? What effect does paint have on the oxidisation (protection) process?
