Well 2 years on from the saggy Moke and several trips with a tent and gear in the back my builder has agreed for me to tow rather than carry.
An Oztrail Camper 6 trailer tent has been obtained and now time for trailer construction.
As usual small steps. Frame has been tacked together


and tub has been folded.

It appears it will be a little while before Mute is able to tow the new trailer.

Loud noises and no drive, found these little bits hanging from the magnetic sump plug.

Appears that one piece is from 2nd gear as the double groove can been seen.
A full strip down and a freshen up after 50-60,000km before we head north mid next year.

Hi,

Tasmania is hard on gearboxes. :)

Still it is good to do it now when it is close to home than next year when it might have done the same thing.

I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.

Oh no  :(
What happened? We’re you dragging with a Brock Commodore by chance  :).

Motor is out and stripped and looks like 4th gear was the problem.

Time for a complete strip and check. It is currently non moke weather down here so no rush.
