    I guess it worth pointing out a minor detail but a very important one at this stage.

    The gearbox and the transfer case both breathe through the dipstick shaft and careful cleaning of the gallery and the holes is important otherwise you potentially can pressurise the cavity. I have seen some units where the dipsticks are almost welded in place with all the gunge around the head.

    The dipstick is actually a pipe and the head has a cross hole under the cap where it vents.

    What have you had to make?

    Tunnel shaft covers for drive shafts, petrol tank mounts with vulcanised rubber joiner, Muffler cover, transmission cover, Stowage bins (Except large one), Most of the Commanders seat, most of the drivers seat, petrol sender, and so many other smaller bits and pieces. I need to make the spare wheel cover.

    If you have a ballpien hammer, angle grinder, bench vice, migwelder, a good supply of steel, tolerant neighbors, you have all the parts you need.

    It has been a while so I thought I would drone on some more and let you know what has been happening.

    We only work on the vehicle when time allows, this is not a primary work project.

    I have tidied up the interior and have been painting it, I find a 2" wide foam roller really gets in everywhere very well. Very useful tool.

    We found problems with the wheel cylinders and the master and sent them out for sleeving in stainless. Expensive at $1500 dollars all taxes and delivery in, but it is a lifetime cost for the vehicle. Again, we used John Stuart Power Brake to do the work.

    We found a previous owner stupid trick when we were tidying up the power pack. In a previous incarnation the power cable to the starter had been spliced using a cobbled together goofy hacked down battery post terminal and covered poorly in tape. This had arced out on the rear right drive shaft. We have now repaired that with a proper connector as replacing the terminals on the end wasn't an option at this point.

    Anyway, the brake parts are back and I am going to refit the master before sliding in the pack, which may happen this week or may have to wait until after my holiday, which a week from now I will have started.

    We have also run up the pack and proven all is well there.

    As always, this summer has been way more busy than any of us have wanted. The Ferret has progressed and is back together but there is a lot to share and I will do so in the coming weeks. I am somewhat amused that no one made any comments on this picture at all, really thought it would start some interest.

    It looks like you're measuring something on the filter housing. Either measuring the pressure or the flow rate.
    Have you changed the filter type and checking that it isn't restricting the flow too much?

    Yes,

    Loads to report, just have slipped behind in the updates and posting of photos. I will try and get my act together and plug away at it this weekend maybe.

    Thanks for prodding me to finish it up
