Well after the Restoration of my 40 I have added some, which I thought useful Mods, but some turned out to be a Mod in the wrong direction.

1. Rear Load

With the Heystee Suspension we soon found out, well it was Keith on his first trip, that the rear leafs can not carry any load for a long trip, and the bump stops will work overtime!  :jt:

I then fitted airbags, which I thought would do the job perfectly!


As one can see, the fitment is not easy, because of the chassis arch and the height between same and axle.  :o




After using them for a few km, I removed them again, because the ride was bumpy and the articulation crap! Also, Heystee did tell us that he has load leafs, which we the ordered, and I must say it was one of the best mods we did. LT did proof it over and over again!  :drinks:

I also changed the tappet cover! Not sure where all the different covers originate from, but I wanted the cover with the 2F emboosed on it. The cap is also very different!

Old Cover!

I also fitted a new alternator with double pulley. Now two belts drive via crank the alternator and waterpomp!





Next is a new bracket to accomodate the OEM Aircon (fitted) and OEM Power Steering (thanks JT  :drinks:) which will be driven with one belt via the third crank pulley !

Then I regard my 40 as Full House!  8)

Also changed the long shackles back to the Heystee ones! Too much sideway flex!  :whew:

Long!


Shorter Heystee !

Yep, received, but unfortunately short one was cracked and long pipe did not fit the PS Pump, because that one came of a 60 series. Outlet was on the wrong side! Had to use my pipes but used all the fittings of your pipes!  ;D

Will post pics before weekend.  :jt: Had to have anothe lunch with Egbert and do some wek inbetween!  :P

Power Steering fitted!  :whew:





Had to shorten steering shaft!  :'( But was done by professional welder with a sleeve welded over the joint!

Unfortunately I could only retain one belt setup for alternator and waterpump!

Congrats Adolf, good to see another stock OEM setup  :jt:

Glad I did not have it on RTH back then.   :jt:

I didn't know you could get such small distributors. Or... dont you have a zoom lens? Also would help to remove the rotor so that we can see the fixing holes.  ??? But that may take another week so I'll just get the Petronox guy to guess.  ;)
