It's a labor of love Skye, as you would fully appreciate. Looking forward to some beer with ya mate.

I'm dissappointed that you fellas think that I need a cooler/stubbie holder. They just don't last long enough to get warm...I need a dash fridge I reckon (dreams......but wait!)

And the Rum thing............Rum is a whole other beast, it will make a man fight with dirt!!!!! and the dirt wins....

Cheers Andy.

You dont need a fridge with the vents next to the cans, turn the cold on flat out, and your beverages will be chilled in no time.

new custom centre bearing going in, fill rubber bearing ring with Sikaflex, allow to dry for a week, space it down off the cross member (relative to your lift) and most of your centre bearing shudder/vibration is gone, they last longer too! Make sure you buy a good one, not a cheapy, the rubber mount and bearing quality is crap with the cheap ones.

this is the one to get

Thats exactly what I did to the last centre bearing I bought.
Most people get 6-9months out of a centre bearing. Mines still going good after almost 2yrs.

The rubber boot will fail long before the bearing will.

Same, I have only ever buggered one 'custom centre bearing' and that was when I squished the tailshaft and drove it home, it just flogged apart with all the vibration.

Finally have the pics of the catch can in place, I'm going to replace the hose with silicone hose, the stuff they supply just kinks with the heat.
Not a bad set up for $50. The engine doesn't burn oil anymore or use as much oil, the boost seems to come in quicker and it's power seems to have become smoother, all of which I expected. Very happy with the results.

I used rolled steel wool as the medium, Sifa brand from Bunnings, Medium courseness,grade 1, then you roll it into the shape and density you wish to have. Easy. I also sealed the fitting with Loctite flange gasket or master gasket gel and used an o ring to seal the drain plug. I didn't want any leaks, I hate oil leaks!

Nice! Is it necessary to run one with a filter on top like this set up? Or is it just better. The one or two i have fitted in the past did not have this feature,
Drive it bro!!!
