Re: Engine wanted

Downloaded Tapatalk and immediately deleted it. I’m pretty sure I did the same thing back a few years ago when it first came out. I’m not up for the social media style posting etc. I prefer my forums like I prefer my trucks, Old looking but still running great.

Re: Engine wanted

Went back to upload photos, but I apparently need to resize all the photos since IPhone photos are to big.

Re: Engine wanted

So I looked it up and I have the 5:1 gear set. I’m running a 33-34” tire No brake mods have been done, I have never really felt the brakes to be lacking in the 303 so long as they are in good condition My drive train is stock from the flywheel back. This includes the bellhousing, clutch, throw out b...

Re: Engine wanted

This site doesn’t allow pictures to be directly uploaded right? Noise level is similar or even quieter than stock minus the intake noise. I haven’t installed an intake silencer box yet so the filter is fairly loud. I am looking at installing a Donaldson filter box to silence the intake. I haven’t ta...

Re: Engine wanted

I have a set of the gears previously available from House of the Flying spanners. Same ones I believe Kamo is selling now. of course their website appears down now as well. Hopefully they just forgot to pay the server bill. I don’t specifically recall the ratio, but it’s the only set around from wha...

U-Joints

Call me lazy, but I’m not finding anything with search and it’s cold so I’m not interested in going to measure. Best I recall is that the C303 use the same u-joint as a rover, am I remembering that right. I swear I rebuilt my front shaft, but I can’t recall what I used.

Re: Flying Spanners - the 5.1's

Or have both a Volvo and a Unimog. I have three mog’s to keep my Volvo company and to keep me from doing something stupid with the Volvo.

Re: Flying Spanners - the 5.1's

37” tires would achieve the same results without changing gears. But anything over 35” is to big for the C303’s cosmetics in my opinion.

Re: Flying Spanners - the 5.1's

So...I can’t give a totally fair review since I also changed engines. But I can say the gears from flying spanners are great. Too bad they appear to have closed their doors. But I think the Croatian companies are made at the same shop. The gears are quiet and build into the diff nicely. The increase...

Re: Engine wanted

Yeah, Photo Bucket really went overboard. Them locking down Tinypic was a huge knock on many threads across the internet.

I will eventually create another video and try to show the performance of the truck. Hopefully My buddy is going to duplicate my efforts in 2020 so we can get some good info.

Re: Engine wanted

So...wow machine shop took their sweet A$$ time. Finally got revised parts back late last week. Assembled everything again and she is back up and running better than before. Changes took care of some alignment issues between the transmission and engine due to differences in bellhousing I had availab...

Re: Engine wanted

Guess I owe a response here. Truck has been down for a bit waiting for a revised part to be machined. Also swapped gears in the diffs. Hoping to have the part tomorrow and truck back up Thursday. Hopefully I have some time to make a follow up video in the near future.

Clutch release bearing

Does anyone have a stock throw out/release bearing sitting around that they can take some measurements of?

Re: Engine wanted

I will save you guys some waiting time for the next video and let you know the truck is up and running and appears the be handling everything well. It will take some time to get everything cleaned up the way I want it, and finish a few minor items. In the meantime I am taking it on some shakedown ru...

Re: Engine wanted

24 to 12V conversion is almost complete, just need some new headlight bulbs and either rewind or swap out the wiper motors. If anyone has solid info on swapping or rewinding wiper motors I sure would appreciate it. This appears to be an option. https://www.oshkoshequipment.com/products/detail/71/375...
