    Obviously you weren't an impecunious apprentice in the Sixties! Don't forget the muffler bandage and muffler putty.

    Ah yes! The toolbox I carried in the first 10 or so vehicles I owned, had an always-replenished stock of muffler putty and exhaust bandage, as well as a packet of PK chewing gum for fuel tank repair on the go. (Juicy Fruit never seemed to stick as well, for some reason)
    And ground black pepper for radiator leaks!

    So a special thank you to Simon in NSW for inspecting Bluey. Also, a massive thank you to V8 Ian for your assistance in getting Bluey home.

    Well that is it for now folks!

    Kind regards

    Not just impecunious apprentices - anyone who travelled away from the major cities had to be prepared to make makeshift repairs at least into the seventies. And then you have anyone who grew up before about the seventies was usually brought up to only replace it if you can't fix it.

    Lionel, if you hear about anyone with a Transfer Case for sale I'm looking for one.

    Ideally a NP200 but 201 / 202 will work , I bought a basket case '52 PowerWagon missing a lot of parts including Transfer case.
    Last resort I'll divorce an LT230 & use that but really prefer to restore it to original if at all possible.
