I got some 1000L pods off a mate awhile ago.yesterday had a crack at cutting one down.had a go at plastic welding it,did no good with soldering iron or heat gun(with minimal effort).one piece over lapping sides 3/4 tube of 1/2 good sikaflex.

Plastic welding is not difficult, except you need the right filler rods and some ‘plastics’ aren’t designed to be welded. Sika will be your friend.

Cleaned the K&N,re-oiled it,adjusted the valves,have to re-seal the sump one day,somewhere in the past the engine was lifted with a wire sling under it and its distorted.
Redid it about 12mths ago but it's impossible to not squeeze out the sealant along one edge while starting the bolts on another and anyone who has had a sump off knows the oil just runs down the inside of the crankcase --forever !! so getting a dry mating surface is like shearing jellyfish.

How come you strip it down that much to do belt/tensioner? Or you doing other things?

Started designing tray head board.
Started with dodgy drawings on phone.
Then did measurements and chalk drawing on garage floor, followed by arts and craft time with old carboard rolls.
Think im happy with design.

Now bunnings just needs to get new gas bottles in and ill grab the needed metal.
Thinking 50nb pipe. Will all be just cut and welded.

Replaced oil filter/cooler assembly with a second hand unit from Patrolapart, stripped it completely and flushed it out just to be sure.

Charged both batteries, getting ready to start the old girl in a few days. @Yeti's Beast Brad, that Victron 12v7a IP65 smart charger is a bloody beauty as is the deep cycle PHC12/100 AGM I got through you, thanks again.

any chance of a pic Keith?
Didnt think of that hey....and not sure how to post one on here anyway....but if you have seen a new genuine overflow....pretty much what it looks like with a few outside marks added for good measure.

Cheers Keith

Go to the 'sandbox' section, there is a sticky there that explains how to add pics to the forum.

Holy Moly, I'd be contacting the ACCC.
