    Looking good - but I would only have put three studs in to hold the spare - and used one of the additional holes for a peg with a transverse hole for a padlock. If put at the top, this could also be used to keep the weight of the wheel off the studs when putting it on and off.

    Hi John,

    Not a bad idea and not too late to implement that!!
    I was going to have a hole through the middle of the mounting block that would take a padlock, that would not allow the wheel to come off the studs. I think I like your way better!! Thanks John!!

    Cheers,
    Tricky

    General News

    Hi Guys,

    Didn't do any work per se to the Camel on the weekend but did spend a few hours shuffling bits n pieces around in the shop and a lot of cleaning!.

    The redundant AMG front clip that was going to be used in a clients car has now been moved to the back corner of the shop and all the Camel bits are now moved forward so we can access then better. A small win for the Landy!!

    Also, I have ordered a full gearbox rebuild kit from All Four x 4 which should be here this week (hopefully) which means we can start the gearbox tear-down and rebuild this weekend (fingers crossed). Once the gearbox is rebuilt we can fit it back up to the motor and install it in the car and test run the rig - a huge milestone there!!

    Staying with the gearbox - I have yet to order the O/D gear from Ashcrofts in the UK. While its a great idea it does require a bit of machining of the gearbox casing to get it to fit. Has anyone done this and how easy/hard was it?? While I have the machines at home to do this, I am by no means an expert machinist!

    Through the week I had discussions with Henry from the Ho Hars!! What a nice bloke. He has convinced me to repair the bulkhead myself as I was hesitant to do it without a jig - and I didn't want to build a jig for just one bulkhead (now there's a bold statement!!). So will order the new parts for the bulkhead next week - thanks Henry!

    Lastly, is anyone else having issues uploading photos to the site - I have tried three times now and I just get an error message!!!

    Cheers,
    Andrew
