    Put this all back together yesterday. Still waiting on new intercooler hoses but the old ones were cleaned out and refitted for now. All appears good for now, blowby is normal, oil sample came back from Caterpillar all clear. Time will tell



    Provent fitted and plumbed



    And the first start up

    Yeah was a big relief, i guess the next sample in 1000km will show the whole story in regards to bore condition. If there is a big spike in iron and chrome than safe to say i'll be plucking the engine out. For rings, slugs and a hone

    a fair bit has happened to this over the last 14 months, mainly a lot of general maintenance but a few cool things.

    Rebuilt the front prop shaft, rebuilt the winch, replaced winch motor and solenoid pack, replaced injector seals, rebuilt the swivel hubs and new front pads and rotors and new rear pads





    twisted the spline on a rear axle,



    so it now has chromolly axles, CV's and drive flanges





    Ashcroft transmission to transfer adaptor shaft upgrade



    stripped the transfer to replace the crosspin in the centre diff. Replaced with an Ashcroft item







    all this was in preparation for the lockers. 2 Ashcroft air lockers





    operated via an ARB compressor mounted under the drivers seat box



    And some decent steering rods, 32mm solid chrommolly

    yeah should be able to lean on it pretty hard now. Clutch is the next weak link but will be getting sorted at some stage in the next 6 months

    yeah goes allright, I have had a couple of situations that have pulled it up - steep black soil hillclimb in the wet. But yeah tracks that I used to have to pick a line are now point and shoot.

    couple of clips of it in action.
