    Thatís surprisingly good for such a big heavy vehicle. I assume we are talking the almost mythical, never likely to see one in the flesh, twin cab 6x6?

    yeah but If I put your patrol in a car cube crusher I could put your patrol in the back of the 6b and drive around legally....

    yep, archaeopteryx cross between a reptile and a bird. (perentie and parakeet) dual cab, so I have to crush it to get it on the tray...

    but as I like to point out to one of the guys at work I can almost legally seat 10 people in archie by putting 5 in his car, putting his car on the tray and then 4 passangers in the 6b.

    he wasnt happy to measure the tray and realise that it could actually be done... But I'd get pinged for overhang and probably the passanger load out.


    the 110's can get into the 9l/100 with nice driving and Im quitely confident I could squeeze one down to the very high 8's reliably.

    14 and worse you say?? that is bad, mine gets 11.22/100km to 12.61, BUT is pretty well empty all the time.
    Lets face it though, a Perentie could use double or triple that in fuel and its still cheaper to run than any new vehicle that ends up having an engine, turbo, transmission failure...

    Today i pulled my finger out and put the social media down, at 11.30amWhat did you do on your Perentie Today., and went outside. It was a bit sunny so i put up the gazebo over the bonnet and secured it to the earth. Then i took off the manual steering box. I removed the d1 pitman arm and fitted the defender one to the d1 steering box. I then fitted the box from the top down into place. I had to remove the stay bracket first. Dropped straight in. Bolted it up. Refitted the stay bracket. Refitted the shaft. Cut the protector cover off a bit so it clears the power steer box. Then i removed the cover of the engine and fitted the power steer pump. I then fitted the pressure hose, thanks Bearman, and tightened it. Had to call it a day coz i had to go out. Tomorrow i will have to arrange the reservoir and supply and return hoses.

    Cheers Rod

    Today i finally fitted up the reservoir and had to buy a couple of oil safe hoses for the bigger supply line to the pump. One hose was of a vt v6 commodore coz i needed a 180deg bend and then a brass joiner and some straight oil safe hose up to the reservoir. Then i modified the d1 return hose and pipe. I removed the main connector and hose that joins to the box and deleted the steel pipe. Pushed the hose onto the reservoir and filled the reservoir. I undone the bleed nipple on top of the box and waited for the oil to come out. A bit of pressure was applied, i blew into the reservoir, to get the oil to come out the bleed nipple. Tightened the nipple. Topped up the reservoir and crossed my fingers and started the bushpig up. No oil leaks. Steering was incredibly light. Could turn the wheels, which were on ramps, with one finger. WOW. Incredible. Cant wait to try it out on the road. Just gotta fix the front tailshaft. Cant grease the uni's so im gonna remove it and make it easier to grease the ujoints. Got a little vibe so will check the uni's while its out. Thats tomorrows job...maybe...lol

    Cheers Rod

    So happy now

    Well today, Saturday, i removed the front propshaft and checked the uni joints. Both good. Has had a new shaft recently, in the last 5 yrs, coz i couldnt get the grease gun onto the nipples. So i fitted longer nipples and used my die grinder to grind out a couple of reliefs so the nipples dont break off at full flex. Greased the joints. Both took at least 8 pumps of grease. Hmmm. Refitted the prop shaft. All good. Finally took the bushpig for a drive. WOW. Totaly different experience. So light and easy. So pleased with myself for pulling my finger out and doing it. Best thing ive done to it so far.

    Cheers Rod

    Hi all, on Wednesday morning I removed the rear diff cover coz the fill plug was not doing up. I suspected the plate thread was stripped. Took the cover off. Plug was just turning and not tightening up. So I removed the plate on another diff I had gotten for the right price, just for parts, that the PO had removed from a S3 with an angle grinder, explains why it was free, and I cleaned it up and painted it white. Well bugger me its gloss white. The cap on the spray can said flat. Hmmm. I dont really care that much. New gasket and clean oil, job done. Now the original cover had the brass shouldered plug in it and I had trouble removing it. Turns out it had 3 sealing washers on it? WTF? I spose it dont matter now. The plate thread was damaged so im keeping it for posterity. No other reason. Coz if I throw it away, for sure I'll need it. No pics.

    Cheers Rod
