It's on the heavy duty size for a spare tyre holder. You wont break that in a hurry.

Agreed, it’s a bit of an overkill, but the price was right at $10.

Fuel tank came off today, no holes and clean inside.





Shocks are shot, so in the market for a new pair.
Anyone know a good source or equivalent make/model that works?

Any Pedders place will be able to fix you up. REPCO or Bursons also can probably help also. Just need the open and closed length and type of end fittings. Pick something off a vehicle of similar weight such as an F truck or Landcruiser type machine and you will be close enough for valving.

You are more than likely to jag suitable shocks in the Old Man Emu catalogue but these are unnecessarily fancy and expensive.

If you are near Brisbane WW Shock absorbers in Geebung can make exact replacements for about the same price as off the shelf models. They will even rebuild your originals. I am sure there are similar shock absorber manufacturers in all major cities.

My Grandfather used to Drill a small Hole in Old Shocks drain the oil refill with Gear oil & put a little self tapper in the Hole. & reuse them...

Now that’s old school!
I remember putting screws in, to ‘tighten’ up the bushes.

I used to drill a hole, drain old oil fill with castor oil, pop rivet the hole and solder it.

Great to see some progress. Keep it going. That tyre carrier should never let you down. Haha. I need to install one on the F250 also. Not sure what I will steal one off yet.
