The Brumby lineage resumes after a 5 year break
Buddy the Brumby (ute)
Well here we go (again) ... our FORTH little tool box, named Buddy
This brumby is very much a work in progress
1991 Subaru Brumby:
Beige, Speedy Desert RAT's 14" wheels, that came with it, including 205/75/14 tyres and two spare sets of 13's
Alloy Bull bar and Towbar
2 inch lift kit with new after market front struts, recently fitted.
Thermo fans driven by sensor in top radiator hose,
Sony "media" stereo (no cd but has USB input)
Buddies / Fix-ups: (late July 2015)
Remove 10 metres of excess wiring. (heaven knows what it was all for)
Remove the oversize tyres (205/75/14) and put on the a set of original 13 inch rims and tyres. The tyre size that was on there had over cooked the gearing of the brumby and it was very difficult to drive, not enough torque to get to 100 Kph
New (ebay) brake and clutch pedal rubbers as the originals were almost gone.
Replacement car radio antenna.
Rattles in drivers door as window track had been wrongly assembled at some point
Refit the clutch cable grommet in the firewall, also the main wiring grommet was out which made for a very noisy cabin.
Remove original car radio as it has had all of its wires cut off super short.
Windscreen wipers old and worm out, also wrong fitted new kit installed
Look at why the heater is so poor, all of the other bumby's had extremely good heaters.
Rattles rattles and more rattles
|here is an idea of how great the difference is in the tyre diameters, on top is a standard |
175/70/13 tyre, under it is a 205/75/14 beast.
|Front guard clearance is the pits, it scraped on one part of the guard no matter what |
you seemed to do. the only safe angle was staright ahead with no bumps!
