Recieved the syncro ring from my local dealer after two weeks. Now the case slipped together nicely and shifting and everything was as it should be.
Have been driving with the 87% low/17% high reduction now for a couple of weeks and this kit goes well with my 235's. Much more smooth and flexible thru the grears at normal driving. It is a bit high rpm for highway use but not too bad.
First trip was going south for a 8 hour drive with a 600kg trailer. Just as well to get used to the abuse right away
There is a lot of gear noise when the gears are new but it got much better thru the first 1000km. Still whines a lot though so if you do not need the lower gearing in the high range i would considering not to fit it and settle with the 70% reduction in the low range. With my experience now i am not sure i would fit the high range again if i knew the noise would be like this.
I kept the original gears of course so i might remove the high range reduction some time in the future if i don't get used to the noise.
It think that at that price the gears should have been ground and polished for less noise. I still would pay more if i knew they had less noise.
Hoping it will get a bit better after an oil change.

Annual meet coming up so i have te get the car ready:
- check the brakes
- check for play in the front
- change engine oil
- change transfer gear oil
- mount my CB radio, under car camera, led bar and other stuff if there is time..

Done:
Brakes checked. slight oil residue in the rear drums so I will have to change the seals. just cleaned for now.
Checked front end for play, found nothing. Will have to get the wheels balanced.
Transfer oil change done. Oil did not look too bad but some grey matter from the new gear wheels.
CB mounted and antenna adjusted and checked.

The meet was postponed due to forest fire hazard so I got until September now..

Not long now, driving south on Friday for 8-9 hours for the annual Suzuki meet :)

After reading someones post about flushing the catalytic converter i thought i would give it a go in the weekend. flushed it out and blow dried with my dogs big blower fan. kind of helped a bit so yesterday i went to the Biltema (Halfords lookalike) and bought a universal cat converter for NOK699 approx GBP70. Also bought a M18x1.5 weld nut for the lambda, drilled a hole in the same position as in the old cat, and welded it.
Then cut out the old cat from the pipe and welded in the new cat.
WOW the difference!
Now i got power above 4000rpm!

Haven't tried going uphill yet to check if the ignition pinging is reduced, but wouldn't be suprised if it helps.

Only regret now is that I did not change the complete pipe for a 2". the bend from the manifold and down to the cat is tiny..
It looks ok on the outside but it is a double pipe with insulation so the inner diameter is like 40mm.

Next now is to tidy up my electrical connections and get the wheels balanced and I'm off on Friday morning!

Got a ding on the front of my hood. Stupid driving. So got most of it out again, put on filler, sanded, primed, and sprayed it satin black. Looks better than a dent. :)

That will only reveal what a poor job this was :)
But I'll post some later..

New regulations for lights now so I'll probably buy 3 or 4 7" lamps to put there..
