Re: some exotic Stage 1 in Germany

I had similar problem. My PTO is a front facing Thomas chain drive from the top PTO output. It reaches down toward the chassis rail and intersected where the exhaust wanted to go. Some hammering and welding was required to get it to fit, but it also hits the cross member from time to time as a resul...

Re: some exotic Stage 1 in Germany

The 8000lb Thomas is great. That is what I have on mine, converted to PTO drive from electric.

The misalignment for the exhaust is not surprising given the lower PTO was designed for the One Ten Perentie conversion. But that rear output is a real rarity alright. Well done getting it.

Re: some exotic Stage 1 in Germany

Damn, this needs to be in LRO or something. That is some aircraft quality work right there :!:

Re: some exotic Stage 1 in Germany

Yes, the Perentie is military grade. It also meant that to have a PTO winch, they needed to make the lower PTO output. It makes for a lot to be running off the engine. I imagine too that the Perentie design allows for more movement and articulation and not just weight carrying. I actually thought ai...

Re: some exotic Stage 1 in Germany

This is great reading. It's good to see that the HCPU went to a good owner.

The driveline is very interesting. Quite different to the way Perentie did it.

Do you have the air bags?

Re: ISUZU 3.9 IN U.K

Cheers. I am guessing your only option will be to enquire with Vanuatu, but good luck with that. The state infrastructure is at times quite inefficient and ineffective. It will be impossible to know how many were imported to the UK because they would have been private deals. Official export records ...

Re: ISUZU 3.9 IN U.K

You ask about "the number of factory Isuzu engined stage 1s". These were a local variant in Australia. While there are those that were assembled there with those engines as an option, they cannot be considered "factory" in the sense that they were built in the UK, knocked down, a...

Re: Restoration

Probably sitting by the fire if the photos I'm seeing from there is anything to go by :lol:

Meanwhile, it's a warmish 28ºC here at the moment. Probably a gazillion degrees in Oz though!

Re: Restoration

I have early Disco1 exhaust manifolds on mine. Very tight squeeze and the pipe work at the bottom is different (larger diameter). But it fits.
