Re: Jordis 1988 Samurai (Re)Build

Looks very similar to last week but done quite a bit of tidying and plumbing work. Fuel tank is plumbed in and it sucks the fuel through properly, does need new fuel lines fitting. Cable tied 99% of the wiring and pipes into place, last couple still to do but didn’t have the right size drill bit to ...

Re: hi from norfolk

Don’t forget if you change the suspension setup standard shocks may no longer be adequate, longer shocks may be required depending on how much lift is given and how much extra articulation is gained. Various alternative shocks are available, either longer shocks designed for the vehicle or shocks of...

Cable ties don’t need holes drilling either.

Re: hi from norfolk

Pretty much, yeah. Remove the old, bolt the new brackets on and fit springs. I fitted second hand springs. New ones are easier to source but obviously a bit more pricey. The springs themselves are longer than standard suzuki springs so generally give a softer ride. Do bear in mind, they are still le...

Re: hi from norfolk

Welcome to the club.

The YJ kit is a suspension conversion using the longer j33p YJ springs. Its a bolt on kit. Two versions are available that i know one by Trail Tough and one by Sky.

Most people who have them bought then from low range off road in America. Few people have made kits.

Re: Jordis 1988 Samurai (Re)Build

I honestly can’t remember the capacity. It is a lot bigger than standard though.

Re: Jordis 1988 Samurai (Re)Build

Tank is sat in place, back lights fitted, new fuel sender gauge fitted. All the back lights seem to be working properly, wiring is still to tidy up, bolt the junction box somewhere. 28EE247F-2866-436F-88F5-7A4DC31F5B7D.jpeg F002CF73-34AD-4D22-91D1-83881239ED0B.jpeg E64E56AA-4A46-4859-B07A-4D9B7F9F12...

Re: Jordis 1988 Samurai (Re)Build

More progress. Fuel tank is drying nicely, in a very specific shade of red. 0E0F3CD8-61B2-4090-AFFF-0BF67FCE6AEB.jpeg Bit of CAD to make the “temporary” infills for the back.

Re: Drive shaft turns in neutral

Which shaft? G/box to t/box? T/box to axle? Surely if they were moving the SJ would be moving? I’m gonna say it’s not normal. In neutral nothing visible underneath should spin, other wise you would be moving. If there is no resistance the intermediate shaft may spin, if the t/box was in neutral or h...

Actually scrap that, pretty sure it's just a standard O ring, take it out and measure it, get a new one from anywhere.
It is, just an o ring. Mine is instant gasket.
