    Can anyone help me winch out large chunks of oak?

    A massive massive thanks to doodle, Cossack and johnnyboy. We spent the whole day dragging out pieces of 4foot diameter oak, four or five of which were well over a tonne, and got close to stalling a goldfish! Even double lined it was putting some load on.

    Looking fo a Good 24v Tdi

    Convert 12 valve to 24 valve. Idle musing......

    In a similar vein I've often wondered about the difficulty of converting it to common rail diesel injection. There are now aftermarket diesel ECU kits, and Diesel injectors are easy to find- you could strip the parts from any 6cyl diesel bmw or merc passenger car. At the same time you get also...

    Rebuildable alternator and Starter motor

    Kept the starter motor and alternator when i replaced them. The starter has a good motor, but a buggered bendix drive (about £80 to replace), and the alternator needs new brushes. Would anybody like them? do they have any value? might end up at the tip (sorry- Community Recycling Centre)

    Sad day- end of a cruiser

    Made the decision on Friday to let them keep the salvage- a number of reasons, but baby on the way being the primary reason. For me personally, this won't be the end of landcruisers for me- in 12-18m i will be buying either a late 80, or a 100gs model and do it all over again :D Once i have...

    The only problem with thinkg like fox and bilstein is that they are adjustable/pre-set/narrow band. Manually adjustable shocks are great if you have the time/inclination to alter them (or set them up in the first place to your sepcific circumstances), but they aren't necessarily great for a...

    ref dampers- one thing to bear in mind is that when you fit "stronger" springs you need to have an uprated damper as well - not just to be abit longer, but more importantly to control the rebound on the stronger spring- basically as the spring gets stronger the damper has to work harder to...

    Getting to grips with 35" tyres

    absolutely agreed on this-0 but have found that as cruiser are a good half tonne heavier than say a lr90 the extra width of say a 12" v 9" sectional works in the cruisers favour- 12" tyresd work really well on cruisers i've found- rarely are they too floaty, but are always grippy.
