    yep I like a clean bill of health at wof time

    but have a funny crunching sound in the front right hub when in 4wd, and confirmed when there was 3 skid marks on the ground after trying to move the caravan with the brakes on
    how hard is a CV to change on these things, my workshop manual is in storage ..... but I do have some more tools at home now( well in the back of the ute). but do need more axle stands as mine are holding the caravan up......

    The CV isn't hard, you just have to know how to do it. There is a snap ring on the end of the shaft that is similar to the one on the end of my impact wrench. It compresses. To get it off, you whack it with a hammer and it will come off the splines on the end of the shaft. Might be easier to get a new shaft. There is a tool that you use to compress the band to hold the boot on. Some of the boots I have priced are as much as a shaft. Go figure

    well have aquired a roof rack for the jeep but needs a mod or two so have made a start on modifing that..... to be finshed later

    Have been battling with a water leak after much looking and thinking,changed the bottom radiator hose clamp which seemed to fix it but nope got that brassed off and went to pull the radiator out today undid most of the bolts that secured it in went to remove the expansion tank hose from the radiator it was B^&^%Y split so reassembled everything, went for a drive and my leak has gone away ........

    as for the front CV it's still busted can't rush these things.

    Till next time

    And we thought we had it bad in the Nanny State. I had a deer hit the back of my car once. If the people are that dumb, maybe you guys need to issue hunting licenses on them too. You could call it tourist season or something

    Warrant Of Fitness I think you call them a road worthy ,
    that needs to be caried out every 6 months if the vehicle is older than 2000 I think and anually if newer than that ( both of mine are on 6 monthly wofs)
    we use to have to do them all every 6 months but I think it is the goverments way of getting us out of older cars, we have one of the older fleet of vehicles in the world from memory.
    ok here is a picture of the rear bar that protrude from the side too much and not pedrestion freindly if your that close but sorry you have more issues than that, the remedy I have built id a 2" pipe cut in Half with a cap then I will weld that to the flat so it pushes them away .........................
    will call into the garage on my way to work to check the wof man is happy with what I have done

    We just call it a vehicle inspection here and we do it annually no matter the age. "classic" vehicles that are older than 25 years old fi you get the antique vehicle tags, only need one every 5 years I think but you are also by law limited by what you can use it for usually maintenance or going to events and what not. No matter the age if you have a normal registration you have to get inspected annually but the inspection is a joke, at least in Texas anyway.
