Re: SFA Tail lights

...ek is net bly dat ek hulle nog kan kry. Ons is besig om die HiLux van voor tot agter deur te gaan (eintliuk meer van agter na voor) en alles wat nie meer mooi is nie te vervang. Eintlik is on baie gelukkig want die bakkie is nog in 'n baie goeie toestand en daar is nie veel wat vervang moet word ...

Re: OBA [On Board Air] Aircon Compressor Conversion

EK het so rukkie terug 'n soortgelyke conversion op my CJ gedoen. My voorstel sal wees om 'n York 210 comressor te gebruik (hulle is beskikbaar). Die York het 'n "oil sump" wat beteken dat jy nie oilers ens nodig het nie. Dis ook 'n goeie idee om Air Tanks op te sit, dit maak dat jy air tools ook ka...

Quick clutch question

The clutch master cylinder on my '88 SFA is leaking. Are the clutch kits (or new master cylinders) still available? I would like to do the slave cylinder as well, are they available?

Re: Building your own compressor

...die meeste moderne Aircon compressors kry hulle smering (olie) in die 134a gas wat hulle gebruik. Indien jy hom as air compressor wil gebruik MOET jy 'n "tool oiler" voor die compressor sit en verkieslik 'n filter na die compressor (anders gaan jy olie in jou bande kry!!!). Die beste opsie is om ...
