If it's a 4.2d I might have some veg oil for the trip home save buying that horrible expensive Diesel Stuff.

I would genuinely be interested in this, I'm going to rebuild the motor soon so before I do I would like to experiment with veg oil.....

Could you please put a thread up on how/what to do to run a td42 on oil?

Just for you Jacket, I have started writing a Veg oil guide.

Yes, it is long but I am trying to make it informative so it answers more questions than it creates.

I'll also do a bit specifically on the 4.2 based on my experience of 2 years with one.

Wow you go through some cars! If you don't mind me asking, do you do it to make a bit of spare cash or are you happy just tinkering and breaking even at the end of the day?

i havnt lost money on a car in 6years. normally i make a good amount, but my rb30 will be a break even affair if im lucky.

can you post up your supplier and cost of the kings when your doing it, would love a set myself!

I can. i am buying them from:

Allan Cuthill @ racebred4wd.

Phone: 03 5134 1007

i am paying $2,400au for 4x shocks and the king racing steering damper.

This includes Australian warranty, custom valving, canister brackets, damper mounts, and shimming.

Last time i bought direct from the states and it didnt work out much cheaper after you buy all the other bits and pay for valves/shims.

He will be doing my complete suspension kit this time. my diff lamination, and my lockers.

So you should have this thing in your grubby little mitts by now. How did the drive go? Pics?

Landed in Sydney at 3:00, started driving after 4. I'm sitting in the Chinese restaraunt in Cooma because the kitchen in the alpine hotel(my usual spot) is shut.

It's in the carpark. Drives well... It's slow. I havnt had a slow patrol in ages.:( but apart from a dent in the passenger sill it's pretty straight, I'll get pics at home tomorrow. Iv told dean(previous owner) I was going to do the build thread here. So there's another member to the ranks.
