HP,

is this the Moke you were wanting the spare trailing arms for so you could swap them in and out?

The adapter pin looks like a much easier job than replacing the arms each time you want to run the heavier shocks. :)

I didnt have any spare trailing arms and that was going to be the plan, but now if I want to tow the trailer or need to use heavier suspension I can just remove the adapter and swap the shockie’s.
Yep, much easier  ;)

Well PRUs stance is much better and by lowering it al down to a more standard height has helped heaps with the toe in on the frond wheels. Much better on round a bouts etc.

Looking good there halfpint.  You got a plan for a test drive/camping this Xmas.

Well the Facet Electric fuel pump had to go. I couldn't get it to be quiet, and I didn't want to move it somewhere where there was enough room to fit it on the cotton reel rubber mounts.
So I ordered a new SU style pump and spent a bit of time trying to fit into a very small space. Had to do it with a full tank of juice didnt I  ::), Its been a week now and I reakon I can still smell the fuel all up my arms  >:(.
Worth it though, so quiet, a small tick as I turn the key, then nothing  ;D, even without rubber mounts I cant hear it at all, awsome  ;D

Hp,

I was thinking today why you went to the trouble of chopping up the floor to locate the fuel pump but then looking at it again tonight I remembered you have the full length tank cover so it is not in the floor as such, just the cover. You are forgiven my son. :)

You might be able to hide a few more things up there. :)

Yep Terry, side fill cylindrical tank. There is a lot of wasted space in there and the problem is it’s not very useable either. A couple of times I’ve kinked the fuel line fitting up, but it’s out of the engine bay.
