So I've acquired a new project... 'project red van' as George (he's 4) calls it.
Issues with the old 90 are too long to list but nothing some elbow grease and a welder can't fix. Aim is to create a cheap but reliable over lander for some exciting family holidays.
I've been reading this forum pretty much back to back nad it's full of great info... Right now my priority is the rear axle (casing rotted to death... Snapped top and bottom link mounts) so have been following the FAQ on tera down.. Question.. How do the half shafts/hubs come out. Have taken off caliper, bake line, disc, drum cover, rear 4 retaining nuts and disconnected handbrake cable at the pin/split pin but it seems as if only the back plate is moving and not the shaft / hub. Any advise on what I'm missing?
Anyway plan is to fix up all the rot, new rear axle casing, prob new diff lock actuator, new bushes everywhere, 72 degree stat with full cooling system service (prob new rad, remote tran cooler and TMIC), elec temp sensors, ironman 40mm kit, home made snorkel and diff breathers, 8inch rims with 285s, home made front and rear winch bumpers (plus taillight conversion), home made bash armour and sliders (might external cage it), general recovery gear/expo gear (prob awning as well) then go enjoy some of our glorious outdoors.
Any hints... Tips.. Thoughts etc gladly received.
