    M5 0.5mm pitch bolt replacement

    Trying to replace a small adjusting screw with a longer version (existing screw length is 15mm, after 25mm) and in a hex head bolt or allen key head fitting. Local bolt shops don't have anything with a metric 'fine' thread, theirs only go to 0.8mm in an M5 size. Any suggestions out there?

    Fuel sender wiring connection (GU 4.5 petrol)

    Hi, replaced the fuel pump as it's been playing up for a while now. In the process the negative wiring at the top of the sender broke flush with the plastic cap. (I attempted a solder job but that's been unsuccessful). Anyone know the dis-assembly of the cap? It looks like a pop rivet from...

    Slider and Rear bar models (GU Patrol)

    Had a bit of spare time at work, so been mucking around with SolidWorks and an FEA program designing some sliders and a rear bar. No idea if I will go ahead and build them or get them fabricated, know it will be quite involved to do so, but figured I'd post them up for kicks anyway. The rear...

    My Nissan wobble is gone!

    Finally lost the nissan wobble, replaced the bearings, passenger side was buggered. Got a home made tool to tighten the new bearings rather than the crude drift and hammer approach. Wobble at 80 km/h is gone, almost anyway, very slight vibration but hardly noticeable. See what a week of...

    Hi, my boss has just bought himself a GU patrol, the suspension/shocks are factory, they haven't done much work, vehicles done about 140,000k's and the previous owner had aftermarket ones, so the factory ones which are back on are quite new. 1. Question is what are the track conditions like...

    Increasing 'last post' amount on forum page

    Just a suggestion, may or may not be worth while. With the forum main page, where it has 'last post', perhaps increase it to last 3 posts/threads. Would imagine a lot of people just skim over the main page to see what is the latest, yet issues like in 4x4 tech talk, you get a couple new...

    GU, heavy shudder through front end on tight corners, anyone know a cause?

    Hi, got a 2000 GU patrol. On tight corners i get a decent shudder through the steering wheel, in 2H usually needs to be close to full lock/slight incline and a bit of throttle. 4H/L happens even on flat surface, still near full lock but much easier to get the shudder to happen. When it first...
