Don't do it, you'll really sink in the mud. The depth stop factor! Buoyancy, Bouyancy my friend.

Quite the obituary. I can only hope mine would be a tenth as good as his.

Re: Battery Fire

It is so easy to get your wires crossed. Down load a wiring schematic and you will find out how you let all the smoke out from your Ural. The school of hard knocks first comes the test then comes the lesson. I'm glad you didn't get hurt and that you had that fire extinguisher. Please add your locati...

Re: Oil in Cylinder? - A Tale of Two Plugs

When you say gasket, which gasket? The old head gasket must be replaced with the oil channel clear to drain oil from the valve cover. Newer gaskets resolved this problem.

Re: Brake shoes

I had my brake shoes relined with a woven material, they work much better than the OEM material. I had an extra pair I trade to a fella with front wheel drum brakes, he had to almost drag his feet to stop. He had messed around like you, with sanding an filling to no real benefit. He couldn't believ...

Re: Oil pump cap

A little RTV to seal and to hold it fast would be a good idea.

Re: Do I Need an Oil Cooler?

The Volkswagen pilot in me screams, "Why the hell does this thing NOT have an oil cooler standard?" With ambient temps hovering around 90°F, I've noticed a few ponies seem to be napping, and I'm just wondering if an oil cooler would wake them up any.

Re: New Finaldrive 2W

I serviced this thing last winter, there was 2000km on the service. I never had. a moment's doubt that I had done a proper job in my mind. I hate Alzheimers and getting old. But thank god for COVID-19.
