Have you had a chance to try the pump? They are expensive ... but seem to be the way to go.

Oh yeah, the pump fills that little tank pretty quickly

Got invited to an impromptu tour of Pockwock to Ingramport through some woods and Bowater - figured it would be a good time for a shakedown run - we covered 140km, with 58km off road 🙂

I also had chance to air up from 8 PSI to ~24 PSI - this pump fills up the 35's really quickly 🙂

No big issues found. I may need to add a transmission temp gauge to see what it's doing as it was flaring a little when hot - a 2nd trans rad has been added, so I knew there was a cooling issue before I bought it. I'll also need to service the link ends over winter.

We'll be scheduling some regular club runs soon!!

Rear axle bearings need replacing, so I took delivery of a kit from Low Range off Road - with Japan Nachi C3 bearings 😉

Been thinking about protecting this rare Aerio motor from water.

I might save up for a snorkel, but in the meantime i thought I'd try this....

The cone filter sits on the inner fender, so it's somewhat protected from splashes. The MAF side is not,  so water could come straight up through the engine bay on to the filter.

So, i made a splash guard. IDK how much protection it'll give, but i figured it's better than nothing. 

Don't care about performance, just protection 🙂

Also splash protection,  not full submersion protection 

Thoughts?

You didn't need the hot air coming from the radiator entering the air filter anyway..!

Nice use of a Tote cover.  Now what to use to cover the interior of the Tote.  Hmm!

Why?  In case it gets wet perhaps?

I’ve used a K&N in the Suburban for over 20 years.  I just wash (with K&N cleaner) once every 5-10 years or so!

well the k&n is higher flowing, aka let's more particles in than a paper filter.

I'm still thinking of a snorkel too LOL
