Re: Roof Load Capacity

Adding stiffer shock absorbers, springs, new suspension bushings, a rear anti sway-bar etc. will stabilize the sideway movement / sway. X2 ... Have white rear springs one G and the other ORC. Much more stable especially on-highway w/ cross wind. But harsher (but bearable ) ride when I put my Autoho...

Re: engine transport

That sounds like a great packing instruction but isn’t it a bit overkill for 3 hours in the back of his own pickup? If this was to be shipped LTL sure I can see the prep needed. Great platform to install your new IP w/ timing alignment and bench test your diesel engine! He will need to do this. In ...

Re: Advice needed: Front axle inner bearing not fully seated

The CV joint is not the cost. The hub is a bit more costly. If you have time to wait, someone may be able to help source 463 hubs/knuckles. They come up often in USA and I was able to stash a few for future use. I have 2 used 461 knuckles if you have an interest. I hate for you to buy a new 461 knu...

Re: Advice needed: Front axle inner bearing not fully seated

Ha, yes, good question ... W463 joint housings are probably stronger, but I wonder how much stronger. 463 bearings are much bigger and yes, I and most folks w/ 460/461 axles have some sort of spacers. I already stocked up on my 463 knuckles. Awaiting for the next front axle rebuilt on my kasten inc...

Re: Advice needed: Front axle inner bearing not fully seated

Would this problem be prevented if you have 463 knuckles installed? Would be a good timing to convert yours to 463 knuckles? Given your vehicle is heavier.

Re: SOLD FS Leather front seats

Gnome, I have your orig SWB seats sold by Gelande before he sold to you your SWB. The arm rests are way more curvy from the front to back. The arm rest from the pics in this post seems to taper nicely. I don’t know the reason to the curvy shape of the armrests.

Re: Mercedes 461 Wolf door pockets

wolf door cards and regular 460/461 door cards are slightly different if you prefer to have a "perfect" fit. I have done my wolf using drawing and laser cut on a 3/16in abs plastic w/ texture on the outside. Havent find time to redo the measurement and have the drawing updated. I would pre...

Interesting observation! If you were to take to Vietnam, construction equipments and trucks are either free or very low import duties. Passenger vehicles ... 300% !

Re: Air in Fuel Lines.

Removing the manifold makes the work much easier. Blow the area clean beforehand and you can leave the manifold off while cranking. It idles just fine without the manifold. I think it might be a bit challenging for Court to remove the intake manifold at the moment. I would recommend against to do t...
