    Hi Jane,
    Re: Mungo Trip, I don't do anything without a glitch ! at the moment I am undergoing a major rebuild in the tooth department including a new denture ! should be finished 3rd week in June, even if I have to resort to porridge, soup or egg slurry !!
    When the time is right we don't might meeting up at Wilcannia as we always seem to travel in circles.
    Let us know when you're thinking of heading off.

    Hi Phil
    I've done a bit of research on syncro cooling system and noticed in a few occasions, you are saying: "Why not just replace the hoses that generally fail ..."
    Which ones are the generally failing ones?
    I'm swapping my nylon pipes with SS ones and while at it, I would like to also replace "the generally failing rubber hoses" and just carry spares with me.
    Thanks

      There are the small ones near the oil cooler that are hard to change. The hoses from the engine to the nylon pipes. Sometimes you have to be careful that you don't remove a good quality hose and replace it with a cheap one that only lasts 12 months. Buy German if you can.

      Thanks mate. Exactly my thoughts - don't replace good with "new" bad quality ones. Cheers

    G'day Andrew,
    Sorry you haven't seen me on KC for a while, but I keep checking in from time to time. I have a friend (Daniel) here at work who is buying a Type 3 Square back and he is looking for someone to give it a once over before he drive it back here to Canberra, just wondering if it ok if I pass on your details to him??

    Cheers

    Hello mate

    Been reading the feed in rear brake upgrade to disk brakeson my syncro.

    Thx

      Hi mate, you're the 4th person this week to ask about these.
      The answer is, in the short term no.
      I have one of Marks kits here that I can copy, but I am not super happy with the way it fits so would be making some improvements before going ahead selling some.
      I have 2 front kits that I am working on right now for customers and that is taking precedent.
