Work done is not always by the book and does not replace the manufacturer’s workshop manual.
It sometimes includes some bush mechanics.

Here are some pictures of the finished product. (will add some of the installation shortly)

I just need to get her going now)

Workshop Notes

Please note that posts in the workshop category are not necessarily detailed How to’s and are basically records of our playing, maintaining, fixing and building.

We will from time to time add detailed instructions for products we manufacture.

You will also find detailed instructions on some installations we did for testing on our vehicles or installations on clients vehicles.

You might also find incorrect use of tools and short-cuts.

We will try to include links or references to detailed how to’s and the manual.

Our advice is to consult as much sources as possible including the manuals of the equipment and detailed instructions given by respectable mechanics.

When using any of the posts as reference, please also refer to other sources and your own common sense.
