Re: Disc brake pads

The Bendix kit above is all very nice I suppose, but at $1200 or so, it is quite a chunk of cash which may be unwarrant...

Re: Hi

Hello Goody. Interesting to read the vast array of additions to your vehicle. Is it only for touring and not rock climbing as you indicated? It seems a lot of weight without the tanks filled. May be a different point of view but I found no need for a winch if only touring. Contemplated fitting more ...

Re: Trouble with putting a 2016 head unit in a 2013 Dmax

Re: Gearbox squealing in 1st & 2nd

CN1980 My 2011 Dmax also does that. Clutch in and it stops. With clutch in, the gearbox input shaft is also stopped. Since the Dmax box has it's overdrive gearing BETEWEEN the clutch and the gearbox which is a 4 speed box and only made a 5 speed by having the OD unit before the actual gearbox. I sus...

Re: In tank fuel pump?

garrytre It is confusing with ozzies who have adopted Yankee terminology instead of Australian terms, because they call Petrol, GAS, gas is called propane. Some vehicle use gas ie, lpg, so unless they are a bit more willing to say the reality, they call into a fuel station and get gas, petrol, gas, ...

Although removal of the battery terminal is a precautionary move, I prefer to remove the fuel pump relay which is clearly marked in fuse box. If you have that with you and the vehicle has to go to a service shop or external folk, those who are dealing with the issue,.IE, anyone in repair chain can r...

Re: Engine swap/modification 4JJ1-TC to 4JJ1-TCS

Elliot First of all, the Isuzu trucks with similar engine are geared lower and rev higher for same road speed, ie, different use of torque band. Therefore, they cannot possibly be quicker. Don't fall for talk but research facts. You mention the cam. Maybe they have a similar or even same cam since t...

Re: In tank fuel pump?

When changing filters, I use two wires with a switch and male spade ends to fit into the relay main terminals in the fuse box. That way I can turn on and off the pump when required to bleed air from system before starting. same idea used above to eliminate tank contents. I would drain the fuel filte...
