Re: My smaller stonger fuel can carrier

Steve ..thanks posting the link. I like the quick-n-easy rackmount solution and took note when I saw your set up. Does it scratch your paint? over time? Mike, all you need to carry is a 6f hose to transfer your fuel to your main tank! the old fashion way .... prime it w/ your mouth. I already do an...

My smaller stonger fuel can carrier

One thing I never liked about my current G situation is the rack. It is big and bulky, although lightweight, is a bit cumbersome in mounting and dismounting. I have only used it to carry something once, so its primary use is to hold my spare fuel cans. While at the Oregon G-treffen, Steve Smith was ...

Re: 230-GE Tire Question

Keep in mind we are a bit limited with the powerplants in our 460s. My 280 is at 150hp or so, while a G500 is pulling 295hp. Keeping your G's performance, as designed by the engineers, means about a 30-30.5 inch tire with the alloy wheel. I chose 31 being the rebel that I am. :o Bigger tires, howeve...

Re: 280GE and 300GD......different fuel tanks questions...

Could that "special" pickup line on the 280 be a ventilation line ? I have not had mine out. I did notice distinct part numbers for the 300 and the 280, so there is some difference. Going from gas to diesel should be a no brainer like Chris said. Going from diesel tank to gasser might have...

Re: 230-GE Tire Question

If you are happy somewhat with the performance of your 230 with 31s, there is no benefit going bigger with occasional offroad use. I run 31s on my 280 and that works for me and my offroad excursions out here. I have not ran into a situation where I wish I had bigger tires....yet. In addition, I do n...

Re: Europa vs MBUSA G500

I am unfamilliar with the two(?) transfer cases used on the 463s. Is there performance differences between the "manual" shifted versus the electronic shifted ? I have always shyed away from electronic shifted 4x4 systems on domestic trucks but soley on the fact that I grew up with those th...

Re: 15in vs 16in wheels

Minh, these guys have been doing custom wheels for years. I was considering widening a set of steel wheels until the cost was offset by new purchase of Borbet. Just a thought.
