  1. Gold: Been having ignition break down over 15psi. Ugh, 30yr old coils, what do you do? Purchased a set of splitfire coil packs. Fitted them up. Break down gone. After a decent drive, boost is only hitting about 12psi. Need to look into it, but happy another fault is off the list.
  2. Nope. Still paying exorbitant amounts for mine.

    Recently went on a 4wd trail for the first time, and enjoyed it a lot. That's when the thoughts started... I want to go again. But, even though it was a fairly light track, there was one point where I was teetering and felt a pretty small slide. Having previously seen a mate slide into an embankment and have to slide and drive out(years before), I had the concern in the back of my mind. My current daily is too nice for this kind of possible damage. It's a self confessed show pony. So, what's the solution? I started looking for a cheap 4x4. Something that I didnt care if it got a dent or scratch. Initially I wanted a diesel and auto combo. After a short search, I found what I was looking for. Didnt end up with a diesel, or even an auto. What I found was a D21 navara. Z24 petrol 4 cyl. Manual. Already has an ARB bull bar, winch and long range tank fitted. Currently has no rego and requires a bit of work. This thread will document said work. My partner and I came up with the name nugg as we like wombats and call them nuggets. We hope it will be as unstoppable as they are. Also, it's a bit of a nugget in general. Welcome, to nugg life.
  4. Gold: Big day yesterday. First time filling the tank in over 2 years. Rhe fresh 98 should be better than the old stuff it had. *ran surprisingly well for over 2 year old fuel.
  5. Hopefully we see it before straya day. Then you can fly the flag whilst duning.

    Just a quick update. Due to the spacers, I can also run a standard air box.

    Were you the maroon 32? Either way, hope you made it back ok with no damage.
  10. Gold: New washers/gaskets fitted Reassembled Doesn't appear to be leaking anymore(hooray!) Still VERY smokey. I suspect burning off whatever the break cleaner couldnt get.
  11. Gold: Cleaned oil area Run and confirm leak from feed bolts gaskets Pulled the intake out Dropped the front pipes Lowered the front turbo Removed feed bolt
  12. Tried to upload a vid, but forum says no. I forgot how good it sounds. So deep and throaty.
  13. So........ Gold: Starter motor wiring connected Clutch slave bolted up Front tail shaft installed Gearbox filled Front diff filled Battery connected And started for the first time in over 2 years! Fark yeah! Also washed it. Feels so good. (Unfortunately I have an oil leak. I suspect the front turbo oil feed. Will check it out tomorrow)
  14. Gold: Rear muffler on Starter motor in!(was procrastinating because it's a PITA) Transfer oil in Lower bell housing bolts in Connected fan wiring Still have to connect the starter wiring, fit clutch slave, fill front diff and gearbox. Then, should be good to go. No pics today(sorry) Called it a little early as my light went flat.
  15. Doesn't feel that fast.
  16. Sorry? What do you mean?
  17. Depends on blue slip inspection. Need to find someone a little lenient. Anyone know anyone?
  18. Gold: What did I get done today? Read on to find out.... Purchased some oils and drive belts(also purchased drive belts for the white one while I was there) Installed said belt(power steer) Installed radiator Installed shifter assembly Installed strut brace cross bar Installed centre muffler section of exhaust Finished filling with run in oil(I was 2l short from my last lot) Filled with coolant Was going to fill transfer and diff, but couldnt crack the transfer fill plug. Checked and confirmed i also need gearbox oil(dont know why I drained it) Painted the exhaust tip black again, as the paint had perished. Any other questions?
  19. Cheers mate. Honestly surprised no one has bagged out the stock air box. I was curious to see if it would work with the 30 bottom end. Was a little tight, but got there.
  20. Gold: Wasnt going to do anything today, but I ended up doing some work. 2x boost pipes connected Intake pipes and air box fitted Bov recirc pipes and hoses fitted Ac belt on Reconnect throttle cable
  21. Gold: Busy day yesterday. Connected heater lines, injector harness, coolant and air temp sensors, main earth and alternator wiring. Also installed clutch, gearbox, tailshaft and front exhaust merge pipe. Have also connected the ps drive shaft. And popped bonnet back on. Getting so close.
