      Based on what I wrote previously in this thread. Here's my typical camp. Nearly 2 weeks camping out the back of our 80. On my own, so a platform on the right (pulled out rear passenger side seat) and thermarest/sleeping bag on the platform. Super...

      george_tlc reacted to coleAK's post in the thread Minimizing breakdown time for camp with Like Like.
      Well said and I can’t stress this enough. I lived on a 39’ sailboat for 16 months, my dad lived on it for 14 years. Everything has a place and there is a place for every thing. My kids (14 and 16) run a “food truck” and art business but out of...

      Yep, if you've got a roobar then that works well. The ARB on my 80 has an antenna mount and that hole is perfect for the sand flag I have, bolts right in there. cheers, george.

      It depends on the goal of your camping trips. If it is fine cuisine and sitting around a campsite with all the conveniences, then setup/breakdown will take considerable time. I take a folding camp chair and use the tailgate as my 'table' for...

      If the bulbs are 12V, they will draw what they need. It's no different than other warning lights and bulbs (brake, tail, turn etc) - no resistors are needed. Not sure why you need a diode either unless it's part of the 'logic' of lighting bulbs...
    • george_tlc
      Why would you need resistors? If you use 12V indicator bulbs they will work directly with vehicle power. What vehicle is this going into and I presume arb lockers?? cheers, george.

      These are also extremely helpful.

      Is the slip yoke attached to the front differential or the transfer case?
    • george_tlc
      You could take a 6pt socket and then grind the leading edge (where the bevel is). That will give you full socket to bolt engagement. Worse case if it still rounds off, weld on a nut of your choice and use that - the heat will help break the bolt...

      i have duplicated a few of the supercharger items. - throttle body adapter - tensioner bracket and spacer - fan spacer - crank pulley and spacer - intake runner - currently working on the coolant and vacuum pipes. Throttle body adapter. Solid...

      Simulating a corrugated road at speed. No nuns injured during the testing. Smooth body shocks overheat in minutes under less 'stress'. You do get something for your money when you move to remote reservoirs and other bells and whistles. cheers...

      I drove to the crater in March this year via Titus. I didn't notice anything 'bad' about the roads, but then I've driven many tens of thousands of miles on oz corrugated roads and many of those have what I call truck corrugations - super nasty...

      ^ Agreed. 3/8" is plenty adequate for an m12000. Obviously you want to use real dyneema of known quality. I also agree that splicing your own from bulk line is the way to go. Plenty of info on the web on how to put an eye on dyneema - it is VERY...

      george_tlc reacted to Corbet's post in the thread Warn M12000 convert to synthetic with Like Like.
      3/8” is plenty for a M12000, it’s not going to pull hard enough to justify larger. When my rope needs replacing, like soon, I’ll just order bulk AmSteel and splice my own line...

      george_tlc replied to the thread Two Solenoid Wiring Diagram.
      The solenoids appear to be kinda 2 solenoids in one, so you effectively have 4 solenoids like most winches. Anyhow, I'm guessing the wiring would essentially be the equivalent of ->...

      george_tlc replied to the thread Fuel smell.
      Replace the hoses - they are available from toyota. I'd be also replacing a lot of other hoses throughout the vehicle. Hot climate, rubber perishes, vehicle is old... cheers, george.

      ^ yep, first time through there, so much to explore. At the southern end at altitude, there was still snow (well, ice) on the higher & shaded spots of the road. Was also a decent cabin at the springs, camped for the night and used the cabin to...

      I only found the silt issues in the northern area of DV. At least it's pretty easy to see the 'danger' and drive around it - assuming you have enough experience. This was just south of the racetrack on hidden valley road. Indian family of 3 made...

      george_tlc replied to the thread My Ignition Broke!.
      Yep, understood that the internal guts broke, I'm just mentioning that wear and tear on the key 'teeth' and tumblers etc are what all that 'metal dust debris' is and excess weight hanging of the ignition key doesn't help. Of course I have too...

      george_tlc replied to the thread My Ignition Broke!.
      Less keys and 'stuff' hanging off your keychain would be something your ignition switch would thank you for :) All that mass helps to wear the key & key mechanism away as you bounce bounce bounce down the road mile after mile.... I had to...

      This is how my Ignition Lock Cylinder Barrel Rod broke. Original broken one is on the TOP in the first pic and on the RIGHT in the second pic. In my case, I obtained a complete steering column section and figured out that all I really needed...

      And to add to ^. *IF* the pickup coil(s) fail the engine will NOT start, the ECU needs the signals to fire the coil. So, consider the risk of a poor repair failing when you are somewhere remote. cheers, george.
