BigJimnyMeet (North) 2020

 

CANCELLED

 

It is with great regret I feel it is necessary to cancel this event. This is on the basis that:

I will start the refund process over the weekend/early next week. For those who have paid in the last six months this is a simple process for me to click on the refund button. For those loyal members who booked a long while back it is a more complex manual process which may take me a bit longer simply as I have to go through a huge list of records. Please be patient. If you hear nothing within the next 10 days please contact me rather than starting a Paypal dispute claim as these make it even harder to sort a refund.

When I started her up for the first time, I noticed a couple of problems. The first was the engine management light (EML) on whilst the second was a stream of water and clouds of steam from the exhaust.

Wheel bearing

 Whilst re-building the front axle I noticed that the offside wheel bearing was really rough. It needed changing so off came the hub for a quick change. I originally documented a wheel bearing change HERE so this is more a quick update on changing it again.

Axle breathers

As part of the rebuild I decided to fit my own axle breather kit. My Jimny has the old "hosepipe" style which was large, untidy and the hosepipes had hardened off over the years.

Rebuilding the front

Having previously re-built the rear suspension it is time to sort the front. Again this is a KAP 3" lift with Pro-comp shocks and this is where the main "sag" is.

More goodies arrive!

As we all get older things sag at the front, just ask anyone over 50! My Jimny is heavy and my old springs have worn out. However when compared to the new springs the old ones are actually longer! This is more about turns and wire diameter. The new ones have an extra turn and are made of 13mm wire compared to 11mm so I believe they will hold up rather than just compress and sag like the old ones. I can actually press the old ones by hand!

Still, there is a lot of weight up front so I decided to give the springs a fighting chance.
