Flushed the water oil mix out of the diffs and refilled. Warmed up the limited slippery by doing figure eights in the car park, hope do one called the cops as they weren't donuts!
Took the old oil to the tip and found a noise under load, rear diff looks like its pinion bearing time. Should have left the banana skins in there!
I did buy the truck from a used car salesman!

What'd ya do to it?

And GQ hub/CVs? What's the improvement in using the GQ ones as opposed to the MQ's?
I've seen a thread somewhere of a bloke putting MQ swivel hubs on his GQ for some reason or other.

Gotta say, after putting in the GU locking rings, they definitely are a basic must-do mod!

gq cv's are bigger and stronger, so there better have to run gq locking hubs due to the spline count on the cv. mq ones don't fit

I am doing a conversion from MK to Y60 axles and also spoa.
The rear driveshaft will be running a bigger angle and is to short.
So started to grind away some material with a tube grinder where the uni joint is binding.
I have to be able to make the right angle before I can determine the correct length.
When ready I will extend the shaft itself.

When I'm done with the conversion I will make a topic and post the pix.

My oil line was $90 and is braided stainless.
I made the oil drain myself for about $30.
Fittings to turbo $15 each
90 degree hose tail barb fittings for water lines $20 each
I also added an 85 micron inline filter to mine which was $80 plus $50 of fittings!

Water lines I teed into my heat hose feed/return. Use a T pieces on the feed with the straight going to the turbo and then a Y pieces on the return side.
Y piece is $18
T piece is $12



It soon adds up!!

Mate, I wish i had helpful people like you around here :S I was going to go T pieces with a 3/8bsp thread and have threaded fittings on one end and the banjos on the other. I was looking at stainless braided water lines too though I figured if i'm gettin a bling oil line may as well bling the water lines too. The Oil return is just about sorted anyway using the bits I had lying around.

So you're not using banjos on the turbo end? Only screw in?
Not going to bother with an oil filter...
