I used to own this, sold it about 5 years ago, it was a very tidy one with almost no rust & all the jobs done too, eg BEB's, CV's etc. It's cheap as well!
The best stuff is campervan stretch carpet, its amazing stuff. Pulls round corners, stretches into awkward shapes with ease, use spray glue. Its easy to trim & and makes a really nice job. I've just done my centre console that was looking tired with it. (Plus most of my campervan)
I tried a little trick/bodge to see if it worked before ordering new rubbers....
I took the original trims out & with a sharp blade I trimmed the inner lips off, not completely along the whole length but most of it. I left a few sections eg by the window ledge, top & bottom section, to help...
Having owned various campers.. including a Bongo with a pop top. For cold weather the poptop was too cold so had it down unless summer weather. Comfy lounging about space is more important than standing space. I've used all sorts for ski trips, now have a Hymer which has awesome insulation in...
I'm putting my current JDM HDJ-81 up for sale due to recently acquiring another mint 81 that I'll be keeping for good, I can't keep two!
A mechanically good JDM Spec 80 12v, low mileage 149k (ish) Snow Edition Vx Limited so has the 3 Difflocks, Alcantara Interior, 5 seater. Has a few...
I'm on a trusty CF-29 Toughbook on XP with no real issues, its coffee proof too.
I bought it for doing car related OBD stuff but its ended up being my main PC. It's fully loaded with all the options, like BT, Sim card stuff, GPS module etc etc think it cost £160 & its like new. Also have a...
Had a rib in the past but now have a 22ft Four Winns with a V8 :) She's very yellow though, a bit of a classic, we launch from Poole & do trips around the coast or IOW area.
PS: I have a gearbox or two for a 90-115 Mercury 2 smoker in my shed, think they are the same as the yam?
My "new" truck has a new drivers side window rubber that is different to the others its soft & siliconey the others are all rock hard, guess which one works like new. Wondering if Mr T's ones are the siliconey ones? Anybody fitted some?
Yamaha Sti's as they are known, awesome bits of kit. The big power Yanmar's run 14mm diameter fuel pump heads (The biggest of any Bosch VE pump) thats how they make the power. On boats you have limitless cooling almost which helps.
Boats are different, they should not leak & petrol fumes sit in the bottom of a boat. Petrol fumes are easy to ignite, hence why boat electrical componens like alternators are shielded & different to car ones. That's also what bilge blowers are for to rid the hull of fumes.
After a few drives & re-squirts it simply oozes from the wiper seals, I think its just a case of some slight positive pressure is enough to leak past the wiper seals as opposed into the axle.
Found a neat way to stop the hubs filling with water so readily when wading & or keeping them nicely greased up.
On the inside front of each hub knuckle is a square threaded bung, simply remove, drill & tap them & screw in some grease port zirks. Might take a good few squirts to get them full...
