can you please explain this in private message or in here or by email [email protected]Having long known about the axle turret drain problem with 90 series i have always paid particular attention to them while jet washing , so i was unhappy to find a handful of Lincomb mud which has taken the consistency of sand probably due to the amount of times its been "washed" in one of the turrets , and I reckon its been 3 years since i buried the truck deep enough in Lincomb red to fill the turrets !
So i got the drill out and sorted it while wondering why the hell i didn't do it years ago

looks amazing. i will make a note of this acid asapI think i read the Chemiphase Cemex hydrocloric acid i used is supposed to cancel itself at some point but rather than take a chance on it i stuck a bag of soda crystals (alkali) in 5 litres of hot water , coated everything and let it sit for two days .

So much for the original plan of taking everything off and putting it back bit by bit but hey i reckon the only way to do this wrong is to put it off until next year ...... again
Thanks for all help...and all replies HERE IS AN UPDATED LIST: (please help me, overlook, add things which make sence to change anyways, any other work around my breaks? i will add staff from that 3 first page you mentioned (joilnts rubber etc)Axle turrets are known to rot because the drain holes get blocked allowing muck to gather inside creating the perfect conditions for rust to take hold . Just make the holes bigger so the muck gets washed out when it rains and the turrets can actually dry .
I'd have used Dychem super limate which is amazing stuff we use on boats designed to be environmentally friendly but makes light work of rust , i just couldn't get any at the time .
Whoever designed the 1kz exhaust downpipe should be shotAn EGR delete kit can increase your exhaust gas temperature. Diesel engines typically cool the exhaust gases generated, then recirculate them back into the system. When you bypass this feature with an EGR delete kit, then the exhaust remains hot.
