Newton metres 200

The online catalogues (Monroe Max lift etc) only want exact numbers but you can use a paper catalogue to get a near enough one, so long as the compressed length isn't more than 285mm. Sorry I couldn't help any more than that.

My 82 LWB seems to be a bit different:
Extended length, 520mm
Compressed length 355mm
Stroke 165

Found this on Ebay
GAS Struts GAS Springs 525mm X 200N Caravans Canopy 2 Years Warranty Incl GST | eBay
Stroke is longer therefore the fully compressed length is shorter which does not matter right?

$34 free shipping. Better than the $130 I was quoted for a regas. Never did it because up till now I never knew what the newton meters was... Thanks!

Last VRS I got was about $350 from memory. I'll double check tomorrow if I remember.
That was though Nizzbits, so all genuine Nissan stuff.

Not sure how'll you'll go with that gasket TBH, Nissan gaskets are the best you can get but it would be good to know if there is an aftermarket gasket (aside from getting a custom copper job done) that can handle the stresses of increased boost on an SD.

Well the old one is identical to this one and according to service records it's been there since 92 so hopefully this one will last a bit, I'll chuck some pictures up, old gasket was rooted

Awesome build did you get rid of the death wobbles?
Quick question can you set 1/6 tdc without looking at flywheel? I need to set valves

Hey mate, I did end up shaking off the wobbles, nipped up my shackles and tightened the front u-bolts, off course after ensuring my wheel bearings were tight. Not sure on the tdc but I believe there are marks on the harmonic balancer, if you got the wobbles check wheel bearings >balance tyres>check leaf spring and shackle bolts/bushes>and if the leafs are too worn(like my old ones were) then replace em

SD33?
If so there are marks on the harmonic balancer.
There are TDC marks for 1/6, 2/5, 3/4.

Did you end up removing middle leaves or bottom leaves? Also, did you loose much overall height in doing so? For mine I'm thinking of taking the bottom two leaves out of the rears and maybe the bottom leaf out of the fronts, dunno if it'll sag way too much though...

Hey mate, I cut the rust out and re made the Mount, not too hard to do if you're handy with a welder

Same spot on mine was cut out and repaired, looks like they then covered it all with a heavy gum rubber or something too. Holding alright

The shorty has been running flawlessly, wich is kinda suspicious. It has however developed a few oil leaks, wich I'd like to fix, Also wiring some spotties up

I got the tig welder, unfortunately couldn't do it properly, only making holes in the patching panel.

Hey MQMadness

Did you have the head machined or just clean it and polish the surface.

Cheers Ric
