drewin's new project.

Postby drewin » Tue Oct 19, 2010 6:43 pm

I have finally bought a 4x4.

Should look good once I lift it 2" and put some decent tyres under it. :lol:

nice little hole in the diff from last nights neath run. should be an easy fix with some liquid metal.. thankfully it didnt touch anything inside the housing itself. all still functional except for the loss of fluid.

weld it or replace it

i would weld it or replace it mate, liquid metal wont bond properly no matter how much you clean it up. alteast welding penetrates the surface for a bond..

lol yeah, its only a temp fix until i can find someone to weld it for me. i don't have a welder nor can i weld. don't have a steady enough hand for it. lol. it's done the trick for now, am trying not to take it too far though.. i don't think i'll be wheelin' until i get it welded.

Sorry to see that. Damn stump or was it ur driving haha. Looks to be an easy fix i'd weld it up and go from there. If you want to replace it you can get a cheap diff housing off the dude.

its driveable again. temp sealed it up but it will still need welding. im so lucky im not having to replace the whole thing.. it missed the vital working parts and just dented/cracked the housing. lol

after alot of research and reading about others experiences with fitting tyres to disco's i have decided to go 245/75/R16 keeping the standard landrover rims. I don't have to lift it before fitting, only requires a cut of the rear guard to stop scrubbing under full articulation. looking at getting maxxis bighorns in this size... good tyre for the money i reckon and reading good writeup's about them. wish me luck. :)
