A few photo's.

Guess what this is?


And, what do you think these holes in the tail gate are for?

G'day Mick

My guess is that they were cut out so that the indicators can be seen whilst the tailgate is in the 'dropped down' position.

Heres a photo of another Mk3/4 in a shed on a farm. Same cutouts.

Looks like the indicator theory is correct :)

Just found this photo....

Thanks for that Tommy.

The next tasks I have been assigned is to drop off the wheel brake cylinders for refurbishment. That's Saturdays job. I plan to swing by Ballarat and organise some protec paint as well. Will you be home, Scott?

I also have to get the headlights re-silvered. Does anyone know how to get them apart?


I'm also working on the tail lights. Does anyone have any of these o have a solution to the problem?


I'm also looking for some NOS seat backs and a NOS r/h windscreen.

How did you go tracking down the axle spline and what size socket did you use for hub nuts?

The axle end was on the rear of the truck when Mick and I picked it up, we didn't know at the time what it was from.

For the axle nuts I have borrowed a tube spanner.
One of the fellows I work with had a butterbox of his own and bought this for himself.
Stampings are..IH symbol(he bought it genuine), 29230HB.
The nuts are close to 3 1/4 inch and the tube spanner is about 1/8 inch bigger(although not an exact hex).

I'm also working on the tail lights. Does anyone have any of these o have a solution to the problem?


...
I wonder if we could cut some tin/metal up to suit?
Bring them around on your next visit and we can have a closer look.

'Twas what I was thinking of doing. Thought I'd put it out there in case there was some kind hearted soul who would post up "I've got a box of them you can have and here, take these seat backs and hood bows while you're at it."
Anyone likely to sat that about?
Anyone?

Brake cylinders have been refurbished and repainted.


I need to find some brake pedal rubbers and the rubber bung that fills the hole in the floor


Any one know where I can find some of these catches?


Anyone got photo's of the oil and jerry cans?


Last question for the day, what is this thing?

re your last question, it is the holder for your trouble / wander light. you might still be able to source brake pedal rubbers from old international dealers like Taigs, the hole in floor shown on photo doesn't have a rubber grommet, it is just covered by floor rubber, Geoff at Apollo Bay has some NOS if you need them, I haven't been able to source the rubber grommet which goes in the large floor drain hole at rear of floors.

Mick,

I think these catches are similar to the Landrover type (and the Champ jerrycan bracket) and they appear for sale on the Landrover UK ebay site occasionally, though there must be plenty of them about here in Oz.

Quick update.

I had a new rear brake line made up. I picked it up today.
It's the one that goes around the rear diff.

I also cleaned out most of the rats nest behind the switch panel. Dried rat urine is all over the switches.
I was going to wash it out with water, then contact cleaner, then a protective coat of silicone spray once dry.
Comments please?

Thanks Diana.

Had fun with it on Saturday. Looked at the winch.
The shear pin was broken. It wasn't a shear pin. It was a ground down metric bolt.
Whilst talking shear pins, I'm going to use another bolt. What grade would people recommend and why?

Anyway, the winch. I wanted to re-spool it so we wound it out. It's slow. The air actuator wasn't working (as we discovered later )  so we had Mrs. Alien in the Disco dragging the cable out.
The cable is long. When Mrs Alien was almost up to the neighbour over the roads front door, we put a snatch block on it, doubling the cable over, and continued unspooling.
When it was almost out, we discovered the faulty actuator.
We spooled it back in. It looks much more respectable now now that the cable is not wrapped around the front bumper half a dozen times.
I can hardly wait when we use it in anger in the forest. Can you get big tree protectors?

The cable spooled in fine. The faulty actuator prevented the drum from unlocking so we had to unspool it with the motor driving the drum.
The cable was well greased. At least the length closest to the drum was.
