Without a doubt one of the grossest jobs known to man. Swivel hubs.
To say they were overdue is an understatement haha! Trunion bearing basically fell apart as soon as I touched it and nearly all the bearing races' were SERIOUSLY worn from needles!
* THE MIGHTY PARTS CAR! *
When you're rough on gear and panels/body work is on the line - it helps to have a parts car!
1994 Petrol Auto 80 that shares the same coloured panels, same interior, same glass and same flares!
(This car came in very handy when my big 80 rolled at the end of 2018!!)
planning for cape York trip next year, any suggestions for must do mods or performance upgrades to consider? Cape York will be my longest trip yet, should I consider a different grade oil for the trip?
With the first round of the Woman’s Motorsport Development Program rapidly approaching, times running out to have the car ready for our driver. Got a whole bunch of parts ready to go and get it running well before the Easter break. Liqui Moly, NGK, Optima, Bride and Torqueline Garage parts ready to go.
New rocker cover fittings for the new oil breather system. The aeroflow AN-12 fittings to feed the catch can setup and the oiler filler replaces the didgy 1980's french plastic filler tube and assembly.
No one likes a tuning cowboy haha!
With what could only be described as a 'cowboy' tune on the stock pump when I bought the big girl, I was quick to replace it with a properly tuned & upgraded ADS Injection pump.
A good few thousand kilometers on since then and I'm still loving the extra power and more consistant temps! :D
