  1. Hahaha... Lucas is good and has a very good reputation however, they work with automotive manufacturers and provide goods to spec which gives them a !*y reputation lol... Can't take any credit away from Chevy though, they have the V8 world taken up in my eyes.. I'd love an LS3, feel free to ship me one folks !
  2. Oh yeah the rover V8 is junk, buics cast off haha... The t box was right though, don't change the subject !
  3. My point exactly buddy... Auto locking centre diff (viscous) or manual locking. All gears, no chains... Land Rover got it right from day one... About the only thing they got right though ! 😂😂
  4. Why not run a centre differential? Such as land rover for example? It works very well indeed. The best to date was the viscous diff lock fitted to the later classic range rovers 🙂 We have a few jeeps available to us here in the UK and the T boxes always fail for some reason...
  5. A faster front diff ratio is perfect of your on trials or off road all the time. The slightly faster ratio gives better steering, especially if you have spools, lsds or lockers. The Icelandic off-road/formula off-road guys all run a faster ratio up front to aid steering 😉 Realistically.... It's only going to work in a relatively high HP truck when your skinny pedal is to the floor!!

    GREAT NEWS....

    Haha.. yeah we celebrate Christmas here, he's going to be getting double presents for sure, lucky fella..!! That's a good deal you came up with SR, good for those in need and good for your daughter to understand that others need help amd/or assistance. You did well coming up with that deal. Not sure how we will play it, it's early days yet isn't it. One thing's for sure, I'm loving life right now, one proud father right here 🙂
  9. To those who know me and of our expectance, our baby boy has now arrived, 11 days over due..!! Mother and baby Arthur are both very well indeed. Thanks to all of you who already passed on your regards and kind words, and a big thanks to those who contributed towards the surprise that was sent to us, we appreciate it very much, your all very kind 🙂
  10. Needs a battery, she's ready for the scrap heap. Next I'd say inspect the motor, it may be dirty/dusty or in need of replacement brushes if your lucky. Worst case, the comm is knackered..!! Not worth having repaired on a small winch so time for a new winch.

    These kind of threads can sometimes cause issues... I'll leave it here for now, if it gets heated in anyway it will be deleted, I hope you understand my reasons. Feel free to PM me though, I'm more than happy to explain further 🙂
  12. From what I've learnt pressure depends on the media your using, the media depends on the materials your blasting... I was always told to adjust the pressure to suit your needs and use the correct media for the materials your blasting. Quite vague information but after Google searching and a few test blasts it does start to make sense. An additional air chamber is always a good option for a blasting cabinet unless you have a HUGE compressor. I found pressure dropped rapidly and had to stop until pressure had built up enough to be operable again. Our cabinet was relatively large though (you could fit a truck wheel in it), we used a 200/250 litre compressor. Pretty sure alluminium oxide was the most common media we used, I'm unsure of the grade. Another great option is silica sand (block paving sand), doesn't last long though as it breaks up. A very cheap option though 🙂
  13. Personally I avoid unknown brands, they're usually China based and turn out to be junk! Stick to Warn or Superwinch and you won't go far wrong. As for winch mounts, I'm pretty sure SATV does a mount, that's 'super ATV'.
  14. Took your time..! Welcome Ted 🙂
