20/10/08 - Broxhead Common

We had a great day at Broxhead Common with TV4x4. Didn't get stuck once, although in all honesty we didn't try some of the difficult/wet sections as I was not willing to risk soaking the new clutch.

Only had a couple of problems, we found that the winch earth was dodgy so it needs to be re-made (we had to recover a couple of other vehicles) and I still have some sort of problem with the clutch or transmission. When you sharply release the clutch there is a loud BRRRT! noise, like a machine gun. The general feeling is that the clutch cable is sticking momentarily allowing the clutch to slip and as the clutch is still quite heavy to use I suspect that the cable inner may be worn (apparantly a very common Jimny fault).

There is an extensive album of pictures in the TV4x4 gallery HERE 

The most exciting element was that there was a good complement of Suzuki Jimnys! This is the first event I have attended where there has been other Jimnys. I have put the pictures below.

6/10/08 - Changing the Clutch

Wow! Little did I know what this would involve when I started. Previously I have changed the clutch on my SJ410 which was not simple, but was a reasonably acheivable task. However the Jimny is a different matter. All in all it has take nearly 3 weeks of various evenings (probably about 16 working hours in all) to do. Everything is against you, basically the bolts are all hidden and very stiiff and there is no space to work in. The Suzuki workshop manual was clearly written by someone sitting in a nice clean, air-conditioned office which was nowhere near a real vehicle.

26/09/08 - Russ' Rear Bumper Modification

This is a modification that will be very popular in years to come. just like Clint's front bumper winch modification.

People like to toughen up their vehicles without radically modifying their vehicles look. This mod retains the classic look whilst adding the benefit of strong steel in the right place.

First he created a dual tube bumper from steel tubing, mounted to the standard bumper points.......
