Bearings got from border bearings in cambridge. Only R1200. Stripped the driver wheel, was amazed how th...

Re: How to drill hole in fuel tank...

Mmm.... i did not check if its blocked. Wasnt sure what its for. So must be blocked if it keeps so much pressure.
And also did not check the flow from the elbow... assumed it would be fine as i forced the fuel pipe on it

Hi all. Ive inspected my front diff the other day and noticed where the steering arm bolts ontop of the diff theres a gap. Mate told me there must be shim plates in there. If true where can i get. And would it have created any damage till now? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170304/e743f45b92bc56...
