    Looking for any suggestions to which engine Oil I now put in, the last oil change I googled OMD 90 or was it 80? Anyhows found the one we used to use, an eqivelant online- wasn’t expensive and seem to think it was a bit crap? What would you suggest. Am going to be running in warm to hot conditions in the main, an odd frost at the worst. Ta

    So this weekends activity involved fitting a supper sexy hand crafted curved intercooler, but also stippling and pepping the 330 for the intercooler manifold alterations exhaust removal (got to build new stainless exhaust manifold to support much bigger turbo, may as well go straight through with better shorter system). And a new intake, shit this is a big job! Next weekend pipe work, button up and see if it works

    Hi Zuffen, The beer kegs are a 80 litre LPG tank, i fabricated. The tyres are up there for a reason, I hit a tree branch in Rwanda and broke the house box, it leaked forever after that .so the spares act as a bumper, would prefer to use a tyre than a house. The rear deck has a built in top mounted winch for lifting lowering, its a heavy thing with Galve sheet decking and frame anyhow

    Thanks Richard, I employ gravity to assist in getting the wheels down, and a much more tiresome worm winch to drag them back up. have also changed the steel split rims at 49kg each to Alloys at 22kg a wheel. Have not travelled far with Mollie yet, only 6000 mile, have a 3000 mile test run planned September I have done 7 years Africa and 5 years India with former trucks bikes thou.

    It’s now time to tackle the ‘Oilly Bits” So far she is mechanically pretty much standard. I added Proper Bedford power steering, was like looking for hens teeth! But finally found it, was a real ass pain of a job to install. She is very well sound proofed, can have a normal conversation in the cabs comfortable RX8 seats. Have disconnected the front prop, high level air intake, that’s it. With being a 50 year old engine design, with the afterthought of a tiny turbo that’s back to front small intake larger exhale. She is asmatic to say the least on hills. This weeks plan, to fit proper turbo, have modified a Holset HX35W turbo, bolt pattern the same just fabricated a off step to allow fitting. Have also designed and built a cracking intercooler, so these two should add some much needed horses. Waste hate turned down to 25psi. Am also going to change the air intake flow and block off the truck compressor re entry feed. Have bought the 6 speed ZF gearbox, just need to fabricate a bell housing and change everything, gulp. OH and wang on an electric cooling fan and disregard the aeroplane propellor will let you know how it goes

    She came into my life a little worse for wear. But with a lot of time and effort she is transforming
