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.

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.

Happy to report that M-ute is back up and running. Took a little longer than planned as we did a few other upgrade/changes with the engine out.
Have only done a few km's due to Covid-19 restrictions with a longer run scheduled for next Mokin weather day.
Obtained a 2nd hand 4th gear and 3.9 final drive from Guessworks, 266 cam from Graham Russell, 1.5 rockers, larger fan pulley and central oil pickup.
After a short drive with the twin 11/2" SU's that were previously used have now upgraded/changed to a HIF44.
Will report on performance after the drive. Have also retained the 7" mags with 215/50/13 tyres but will replace these with Sunraysia's that are sitting in shed with 185/70/13, my rim and tyre for Royal Flush tour 2021.

Hi,

I like the garden hose on the breathers, is that so you can flush the oil out  ;D

What diff ratio did you have before, curious to know how it will go towing with the 3.9.
