ppl... yuh kno after a week of monitoring the engine and oil comsumption, it hasnt burnt any oil in over 4 days. its still at the full mark on the dip stick.

im still watchin meticulously for any foreign liquid entering the engine oil to foul the oil level.

when oil and filters were changed recently i used this SMI oil additive product. came in a blue bottle. cant rem the correct name. its supposed to remedy bad rings, oil burning , restore compression etc. not sure if this product now started to work but i got the oil burning and back pressuring problem after oil was changed and oil additive added.

oh, engine knock drastically reduced too.
jus that it still has less power that before. i can feel it on the highways trying to overtake etc.

this ting jus messed up we. wot goin on here ppl?






just a point to note:

when doing maintenance on ur braking system, use the appropriate grease for greasing those caliper pins.

i had used the red wheel bearing grease when doing this service but it proved to be too tacky. as a result of this, when a firm brake is mashed i was getting a pull to one side. it wud come about off and on when mashin brakes. the RS caliper was not sliding properly on the supporting pins due to the grease i used being too tacky.

the normal multipurpose black grease for velocity joints can be used or approved caliper grease.

this was just a little lesson i learnt the hard way. it nearly caused me a fender bender on the rivulet road point lisas. this blasted woman decided last minute that she wanted to go into bastor hall... i had to slam brakes, the van picked up a slide and pulled drastically to the left. the right front brakes did not hold properly.

after checking another mechanic today, we confirmed that the problem was the grease.

Hi 2ners, cutthroatInt, I was doing some reading and it looks like when a old engine gets a clean out, It is actually bad for it, they said the carbon build up when removed, causes low compression, and in some cases the engine completely fails.

Its not the booster, from checking the service manual it looks like the E brake set to tight, supposed to get 11-13 when i pull the rod, but I gettin abt 6 clicks now, the manual says that the shoe must be free from touching the drum, or else the automatic adjuster will not work, thats why the light comes on.

Hi 2ners, in need of a return line for my power steering pump, it sprung a leak abt 2 days ago, DM don't have any, and can put any other hose on it cause the original carries two restrictions, built onto the hose, so need the original k34 replacement, the K74 is different, checked already :arrow: :arrow:

if you look at the hose there are two additional crimps,

Tried to repair the leak by re-crimping the end of the hose but the leak got worse :( :( :(

K34 is Best

actually i sellin mine cuz i bought a k74. It's more luxurious and has a rear lsd but thtas about it. Can't corner and handle like the k34.
One thing i'm glad about is that the k74 got a brake upgrade, bigger discs and hub and double pistons. With the 33's sometimes i feel it wouldn't stop.

Wanted to fix her up for some off roading but funds don't permit at this time
