I had to undo and the do up the flywheel gland nut on the Beetle to 220lb/ft recently.  I didn't have a scaffold pole, so I used a mildly bent Moke front bumper and swung off that.  :D

You can just see the mesh on the cetral pick up.


Now a quick sniff of motivation ::)


And next, the diff and speedo.

My torque wrench doesn't go that high either, nor did anyone else's I know.  I used guesstimation, cross refernced with a mate's guesstimation.   :o

It's not hard to remove a VW engine if it works loose again. 

I've got to do those jobs - diff and centre oil pickup - twice soon. 

Once on a late rod-change box to go under my Twinky (when the pistons eventually arrive) to put a 4.1 diff in it.

Then put the 3.44 diff out of the rod change into the remote box for the Traveller.  A 3.76 is just too low for a good MG 1275 and 10" rims.

Not looking forward to it, gearboxes scare me.

Thats some serious tension there

Had to torque a mercedes trucks head the other day 290Nm + 90degrees + 90degrees. 1.5m long wrench and a pole to extend it to arround 2m.


Good work with the gearbox. As far as i know they work because of magic
Mokes and Tiger Moths are the same, wherever they stop, they mark their teritory!

Not looking forward to it, gearboxes scare me.
Yep Nicho, must admit that I havn't ever needed to rebuild a box myself before, I usually get friends to buy a box already done to save me the time.
Its just lucky that a friend spent some time with me recently going over the techniques etc to get the buggers apart and inspected 8) I learned a fair bit about the Moke box. Certainly a bit different to the Industrial box's we rebuild at work from time to time.

Well a bit slow on the Gulliver front lately, work always seems to interfere with my time in the shed. ::)
But I did manage a bit last night.
I made up a dolly and fitted the remote bush in the diff housing. I need to pull the diff out of the crash box so I can get the brass thrust washers out of it for this box, then I can finish it off. A plan for another day maybee ;)


Then finished getting the siezed in trumpets off the colapsed donuts.


The subframe is very straight, no hits or cracks anywhere and looks really good.
Now its all stripped and ready for .... Improvements 8)


Next up I stripped the pedal box down so I can clean it up in the bead blaster.




It always amazes me the amount of oxidation around the front trumpets. Thats another couple destined for the bin ::)

Well have been away for a while now, long days.... no shed, no mokes, :( :( :(

But I did manage to score this 4 core radiator for Gulliver ;D ;D ;D



2hrs to get 20klms, then back >:( ::)
So much for the "I'll just duck out for a minute, its not far to go" In Melbourne comment ::) ::)
Very happy though, PO tells me it kept his 1275 cool even in hot weather.
But its been in storage for 10yrs. Its floating around in the hire car boot for now and will visit a good Radiator place when I get back.

Yep Mav, I think a little bit wider, but not much.
Pete, not a lot of difference on the outside, But the one I have in my other Moke has a squarer top tank.
The number of cores are where the water flows down through the radiator. I think they only came out with GT Minis and 1275 late model Mokes, not sure, but I don't think there are too many around.
I think this one is off a rover or the top tank has been changed over.



Bit hard to get a pic with all 4 cores, but there is another row to the right in shadow.
I didn't have a three core in the boot to compare with, but I'm sure you all have one in the shed ;)
Its been spoken about before here on the Forum, and there is allways good debate on benifits or not. But I like the idea 8)
