The tan one is mine.

It will be shipping out of Melbourne soon (not actually booked yet). I was planning on shipping RORO.

But if enough people want to buy stuff down there to ship with it to make up the difference, I could pack it into a 20 footer.

If only a few people want some small stuff, there should be some space available inside!

Also, there is a chance this might be for sale after Thanksgiving. It turns out that a Diesel Troopy can be convincingly described as the best possible truck to go to Baja in, which we are planning for T-day. If the trip is, super fun then I think I can convince the better half that we should keep the Troopy. But if it is just a vacation, I promised that I didn't have to keep
it after we come back!

But that is all for discussion on some other day.

best,
Abe

I need 5 of those Simex 35x10.50 tires, a set of Snake Racing control Arms, the longer Bilsteins that we can't get here, oh, and a set of Tough Dog adjustable panhards.

See if Rodney's (http://www.automatictransmission.com.au/contact.asp) got anything you need. :D

I sent that company (not sure if Rodney is the only person there or not) an e-mail about a new tranny, or at least rebuild kit for my FJ62. The overdrive is slipping a bit, so I figure it will need it sometime. Thanks for the heads-up on that!

Hi Bikeman,

Are you asking me to track that stuff down, or are you just stating what you would want to try & ship? To be truthful, I don't even know what a Panhard is...???

Great guy, Rodney. Please remember to tell him the Toyota Trails ad guy referred you. :D

Panhard is the rod running diagonal that centers the body over the solid axle

I have a buddy here in Colorado who might be interested in selling you his set of Simex tires. He brought them over when he moved accross the pond from Ireland. He has stated they are terrible to hold a balance and a lot of our tyres here are superior. His are not 35's however.

I didn't think Snake Racing still makes the arms? I would take a set as well if they still do!

The Billi's are the shiznit but replacements would be a PITA when you dent the monotube and US companies can't get them!

Get the inserts from Christo and weld you own Panhards!

Sorry, I'm dreaming more or less...

I'd be interested in an H55F tranny depending on price...

I thought you could just order a new one from C-Dan.

If you don't mind my asking, then what are the advantages of an adjustable panhard? What would be the reasons to, "un-center" the solid axle?

or is it mostly so that you could easily re-center it if you took a hit & knocked it out of whack?

Thanks,
abe

Hi Pablo,

I have been looking at those myself on Ebay Australia. They are super cheap down there compared to here. My only question about buying a used Aussie Tranny would be, "how beat up is it?".

But I have seen them going for roughly $800, with the split case still attached, so that seems like a steal.

I'm watching the above one. It is in Victoria Province, which puts it somewhere, "close" to Melbourne. I have seen a bunch more like it...

Best,
Abe

If you check out their link, the transmission shop Rodney works at rebuilds them all pretty nicely. Makes me want to buy a new transmission. :D
