Re: Axles Portal bearing cross reference

No problem at all Jim. I do have a front portal reference somewhere but I cannot find the file. I know that I posted it in the FB group though. I guess I should also clarify that placement of the oil fill plug is different also on the front but if we are talking about inner and outer wheel bearings,...

Re: Axles Portal bearing cross reference

Front Portal would be the same with exception of the portion of the axle where the CV joint resides. Anything bearing, seal or gear related within the housing itself is the same between front and back although the housing is shaped differently on the front to accommodate steering linkages, etc. Simi...

Re: VOLVO UPPER RADIATOR HOSE

I had to go into the back at a Napa and find one with a similar bend and cut it to size. That is about your only option here. Hello, I am in need of a new Volvo Upper Radiator Hose. Volvo Part Number: Volvo 644132. Does anyone know of a source for these? Ive tried Volvo, Napa and other parts stores ...

Re: Flying Spanners - the 5.1's

I'm ok with 37's if people want to upsize and they have no issues mechanically then I don't see the harm. Not everyone that owns a TGB is looking for off-road adventure and on the opposite end many of us are also not seeking out 80MPH freeway runs. Many of us (I fit this category) simply put around ...

Re: Hard to start if it sits for more than a few hours

What are you seeing at the gates fuel filter at the front of the engine? Is there fuel in it or is that also empty?

Re: Water pump fitment

I could really use some clarification on this since I am struggling at the moment with my new pump leaking from the top seals. Is the correct way to stab the right corner bolt and hand tighten then swivel the pump up towards the left side and press into place before bolting the left corner bolt? My ...

Re: Engine wanted

1k is not bad considering some of these shops want 2.5k just for an adapter.

Re: Engine wanted

Found what I was looking for. So my early measurements were Cummins R2.8/NV4500/LT230 (with rakeway stubby + Xbrake) was around 62" total (including adapters from crank pulley to Xbrake/Pbrake) Chevrolet LQ9/NV4500/LT230 (with rakeway stubby + Xbrake) was around 56" total (including adapters from cr...

Re: Engine wanted

Are you making the adapter for the ZF yourself? In my earlier brainstorming sessions with an engine swap I had figured out that I could get a re-geared five speed ZF or even a fifth gear added to the four speed and just swap engines but the adapter for that pairing didn't exist and since I don't hav...

Re: Engine wanted

If I went the NV4500 route I would want to pair it with the rover LT230. I've been on the fence over diesel vs petrol. I know I could make the LQ9 work and it bolts directly to the NV so the only adapter I would need would be the LT230 adapter which exists. If I added the gwagen power steering box t...

Re: Engine wanted

Where's the hangup with it? It's definitely not a large transmission in comparison to many others and the length is such that it wouldn't push the xfer past the stock location. What's the reasoning? The R2.8 is not as long as the B30 is it? Oh, and FYI there is little to no chance an NV4500 or the l...

Re: Engine wanted

Looks like you have significantly more room to work on poop in there with the 2.8 over the B30.

Re: Engine wanted

One consideration with swapping to the R2.8 is that you will more than likely need to switch to 12v since your alternator options with this engine (as of right now) are only 12v. I contacted many alternator shops about the feasibility of rebuilding one of these alternators as a 24v unit and received...
