Thumbs up Parts!

My first box of parts arrived this morning - engine mounts, ball joints, Oil Pressure gauge, Water Temp gauge and Boost gauge.
Still waiting for EGT and they can go in. Also received sway bar bushes.
May as well make them good before I decide whether I should keep them - It's only risking a couple of $$$!

I won't be doing anything with this lot today, but...

Well done mate, looks like your going to have a wicked new toy soon enough.
Alot of the time to take a step forward, in this sort of project, a couple steps back is the only way BUT when you get to the finish you'll be 110% better off and have good peace of mind

Thanks heaps for the encouragement, MANNING.
I agree - sometimes the view is better if you take a couple of steps backwards...
I went end-to-end on my Navara, so now it is time to just start again.

Have a brilliant week (and remember to keep the shiny side up and the rubber side down)...

Thumbs down Engine mounts. THAT'LL bean easy job...

Decided to swap the engine mounts today.
"It's gonna be easy", I thought...
A few bolts...
A couple of nuts...
Maybe a jack to hold everything up a little, while swapping them over...

AAARRRGGGHHH!

The Nearside mount undid easily. Two bolts and a nut.

The nut was a little tricky as it needed a short socket to get onto it. One socket plus one lathe plus one carbide-tipped lathe tool = a little bit of steel swarf and a short 14mm socket.

OK - That one is all loose and just sitting there.

Now for the Offside one.

WHAT A BEEEE-ATCH.

Four bolts and a nut.

Got the front pair out easily. Same with the lower rear bolt.
The rear top one is awkward, but I'm pretty sure I can get to it with enough lost skin and a few abrasions.

HOW do I get the last nut off???

I can't see how to do it without removing the fuel pump and I REALLY don't want to do that.

I don't remember having any dramas when I did mine?

You're not taking the bracket off the block are you?

Might be...

I never said I was smart...

Maybe I'll take the new mounts out of the bag and have a BETTER look..
Before I unbolt the wrong bit.
Like - Take the transfer box out in error.
Or something else "a bit silly"!

Talking Engine mounts!

I was having all sorts of issues with these.

I called Mat to come over and he had the SOB swapped out in about 15 mins.

Do I care? Not a jot. The mounts are changed and I'm a happy bunny.

NEXT...
