For Sale - Electrolux - '92 Hilux Extracab

Sort of sad to see it's gone but it does allow you to move on to another project. The link to the final post doesn't work for me but the E30 one does. looks like an interesting project. Can you put up a link to Woddy's AC spread sheet you mention in your blog?

synthetic transmission oil-educate me!

I will contact the mate with the bus that is converted to a motorhome regarding the name of the synthetic oil he is using in his truck size gearbox. That oil is about the same consistency as auto trans fluid. From there you will have the contact info to talk to the oil company engineers directly and...

synthetic transmission oil-educate me!

With an auto FWD the diff is part of the transmission as well so it's lubricated with the same oil. FWD differentials are different to RWD diferentials in the way the gears mess, a RWD differential the pinnion is at 90deg to the crown wheel where a FWD the two are parallel so the same forces are not...

synthetic transmission oil-educate me!

This is where it all gets tricky. Gearbox oil acts different to engine oil. A 75w-90 gearbox oil when at operating temp is about the thickness of ICE engine oil. Because long runs and heat are not involved I made the suggestion of auto trans fluid. It has the lubricating properties and shear strengt...

synthetic transmission oil-educate me!

Tricky one Peter, do you change gears like when driving with a ICE or is it more a gear selection from stationary to suit the conditions? Basically, do you rely on the syncros for gear matching? If syncro function is not needed then either auto trans fluid or a super dooper synthetic oil that I'll n...

You could use a 24vdc to 12vdc charge equaliser or even a DC to DC converter with a 20 to 30v input and adjustable output set to 14.4vdc. the LM317 can be bought cheap on evil bay from the likes of Sure electronics

Scroll down and they tell you to reduce the order because they can't organise freight.
