Hi,

that is a lot more than I thought it would be. :)

Are you allowed to cut the chassis and replace that curved section with a right angled/dog leg to bring the wheel further under the body.

  Hi.  Hendo my engineer suggested a short tray on the back. I’m thinking there’s enough chassis for another drive axle maybe? The diff has to come forward at least 14 inches. Everything possible at the moment.        GOOD NEWS!  Found another fresh rebuilt power plant for Yellaterras build and got a tick from Hendo, 190kw normally aspirated  and a four speed automatic for under $6000. That may over stress the donuts and cones suspension I think. The chassis will have to be modified to bring the diff back into aliment of the Moke opening. This modification is allowed. Seeking a fab shop now as Hendo reads up more on some new modified vehicle regulations.

Interesting build there Yella, A huge job but it sounds like Hendo is there to help and not hinder.
It's a shame you cannot reuse the moke suspension so that it will feel like a moke to steer and handle.

How are you going to fit a V6 under the bonnet?

I wouldn't of thought shortening the chassis would be a problem, see a few around with that mod and longer of course.

.    I saw this Hotrod on the internet and thinking, maybe one of the options available with so much chassis available   Thanx MoeMoke, this build would not be possible without my Engineer, Hendo. The rules and regulations are so complex now. Everything has to be approved and documented as ADR compliant now. I seem to spend a lot of time on the phone to Hendo. I really like the idea of another drive axle on YellaTerra at the moment. As usual, price will probably dictate if the idea proceeds on this build. If your going to add another axle it has to be a drive unit, or why bother. The connection of the two diffs is the cost part. Will speak to the 6 Wheeler guys here in Geelong.

PARTY POOPER REGS, Hendo informed me this arvo that the second drive axle is a NO GO!  Because, it changes all the requirements of a Modified Production Vehicle build.  To do the conversion of twin drive axles the project becomes a ICV. An Individual Constructed Vehicle, which has too meet all the current regulations of a brand new car. Thousands of dollars off stuff to comply, abs,traction control, vanity mirror, ect. So, back to a single axle, modified production build only.      GOOD NEWS       Have come up with a plan for the rear. Using a complete Ford diff assembly, has everything required on my list, LSD centre, four link and disc brakes for this build.  The ford suspension all of which are already ADR approved. Have been used on falcons for many years, so should handle the power increase easily.

   The disassembly of Yellaterra has begun. A lot of pitted and rusted metal hidden under layers of rubberised tar, has been removed from the box sections. Once cut into, the floor really has no support. All this has been removed to channel what is left off the outer body over the Toyota chassis. The problematic Moke Bermuda Triangle has definitely gone now. With a four speed auto now requiring floor space a custom tunnel and firewall will need to fill the space left. A custom tail shaft will connect the auto with the Ford  differential. Yellaterra will now be rear wheel drive.

Hi,

make sure you hang on to the badge, you want to keep something of the original Moke. :)

     YellaTerras new rear chassis is being formed                      .   The back half of the Toyota chassis will now be receiving a new rear clip

Hi,

I am assuming the circle bits go over the axle which looks to me like you still have a lot of metal hanging out behind the body.

    The chassis is progressing     Modified the transmission mount for the four speed auto.                                         New rear chassis clip added to toyota chassis.                                        Ford differential system in position inside the new rear chassis clip.                                         Four link system ready to install.
