Thanks for that Mike,
that clears it up beautifully. I never think of the UK sites 'cos I always think ours is a bit unique. Working on Oil Pressure now - not much hair left!!

No worries Barra,

Getting there now, the oil pressure system should be fairly straightforward.

Let me know if you get stuck,

Cheers,

Mike.

Thks Mike.

Well I got her running in time for ANZAC Day in Kilcoy, Qld. Issue with brakes but overcame that, oil pressure at sender is good but will now sort out why it is not reading at the gauge. Also found an issue with the 4WD not disengaging so just removed the front drive shaft for the day to prevent transmission lockup. It appears to a simple adjustment but will climb under during next week.

Cheers,

Barra

Well done Barra,

Great to see it finally on the road again, terrific.

A few minor gremlins are fairly standard at this point!

Thanks Mike,

Txmn turned out to be a cracked selector bracket on the outside of the transfer case so relatively easy to fix. handbrake was over adjusted (my fault) so now good. The only issues are no reading at the Oil pressure gauge so tearing my hair on that one & bleeding the brakes (again). Bit of a noise from the spigot bearing, I should have replaced that while the gearbox was out but can live with that. Drove well, the Qld Police were impressed, did not mind no rego but had "plates" on it showing the original ARN.

good to old vehicle from the School of Artillery I believe it was the quick response vehicle for the bush fire threat at North Head.
