Congratulations Peter great work and a great save.


You can always bed those brakes in on the way to the Corowa!

Enjoy.

All registered and ready for Corowa.

Many, many thanks to Ian, John, Ricky and Garry. My dream could not have been realised without them.

Cheers.

Looking forward to seeing her Pete,

What was the final fix for the brakes?

Cheers,
Mike.

The PBR remote booster did the trick. She pulls up very, very well... thinking about seat belts now :)

Cheers.

Great work Pete,
 How did you overcome the brake issue? Was a booster the trick ?

I replaced the brakes on my shorty which didn't result in much improvement.

Hoping to see her at Corowa and heaps of shorties there next year.

Enjoy her Pete, great job 👍

Yep, mainly the booster.  All to pass the decelerometer test, which is designed for more moden vehicles and not a 54 year old landy with no booster and over sized wheels....

Lay shaft bearing is the educated guess. It has to come out for a rebuild regardless.

The transfer case was going to be done soonish anyway.... its getting an Ashcroft kit put in. I'll get both done at the same time.

Cheers

Now we know what the sound in that gearbox was  :(    Thankfully changing bearings in those boxes is not difficult.

Hi Garry, only about 1500 miles on that gearbox. Not bad aye !

I think that just goes to show how fickle the design can be... 100k miles without fault or a 1000 or so then bang.

Attached is a pic of the type of bearing those rollers came out of.

Cheers.
